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:

The QUATERNARY WEAPON SYSTEM:

You Don’t Know What You Don’t Know

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.

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.

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’

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.

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.

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.

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.

"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.

Inflation Addiction And The Ultimate Catch-22

Inflation for banks is a tool for fiscal change, but also social change. It’s not a coincidence that financial crisis events always lead to more centralization of global power into fewer and fewer hands; this is by design. Inflation allows the establishment to delay or initiate a crisis with greater precision.

An even more powerful tool is the WITHHOLDING of stimulus and cheap money once an economy is addicted to the flow of fiat.

I have been arguing for many years that central banks were constructing a situation in which the system is utterly dependent on fiat stimulus in order to maintain the illusion of growth. If the bankers return to lower rates and QE, inflation will continue to explode. If they stay with higher rates and a trickle of stimulus then a global crash is inevitable.

It’s one or the other, there is no soft landing when trillions in money creation are at play in such a short period of time. Central banks must return to near zero rates and QE if they hope to prevent a debt implosion. This might seem like a soft landing scenario at first, but when CPI ramps up (as it is starting to now at the mere mention of rate cuts) consumers will be hit even harder.

I’ll ask this question once again because I don’t think some people are getting it: What if their goal is to create a crash?

The Great Global Slowdown Has Already Started

In the past six months both the World Trade Organization and the World Banks released statements warning of an impending global slowdown. After an initial surge in exports and imports caused by massive pandemic stimulus measures, the effects of the helicopter money are now fading. By the end of 2024, global trade will register the slowest growth since the 1990s.

The UN also suggested growth deceleration was coming in the next year due to falling investments and subdued global trade. Keep in mind that the alternative media has been warning about this outcome for the past couple years at least as covid funding dried up. Globalist institutions are simply informing the public at the last minute; too little, too late.

The World Bank asserts that global trade is flatlining and international trade data supports this theory. China’s export market plunged by 7.5% in March, far more than expected and well below the 2.3% decline predicted by a major poll of mainstream economists by Reuters.

By the end of 2023 European exports declined by 8.8% compared to a year earlier and the union barely avoided a recession (according to official numbers). All hopes in Europe rest on the possibility of a steeper drop in inflation and central bank interest rate cuts. As I have been saying since 2021, don’t get too excited about banks lowering rates. It’s not going to happen at the pace that investors want, it’s not going to bring back QE anytime soon and when they do cut rates CPI will immediately spike once again causing panic among consumers.

I suspect that, after an initial rate cut event and an inflation resurgence, central banks will return to tightening with even higher rates in 2025.

In the US, a net importer of goods rather than a primary exporter, consumer volume has been in steep decline. Due to inflation, Americans are buying less goods while paying more money. And this is how inflation skews economic data. Higher prices on goods make retail sales look great, but in reality people are simply paying a higher price for the same amount of products (or less products).

Consumer credit data shows a steep decline in debt spending; credit card delinquency is at all time highs, APR is at all time highs and debt growth has collapsed in the past couple of months. Considering that the American consumer is a primary driver of global exports, it makes sense that international trade is now plummeting. Consumers are broke. The covid stimulus party is officially over and inflation is dragging the market down.

The IMF has recently noted the signs of global slowdown but, as usual, they argue that a “soft landing” is imminent. In other words, they claim there will be no serious repercussions for the economy. They do mention one interesting caveat in their analysis – The danger of global conflicts “derailing” the supposed recovery.

War leads to rising protectionism, the IMF says, and protectionism is a big no-no. In a world economy based on forced interdependency this is partially true, but the bigger picture is being ignored. The world economy should be built on redundancy, not interdependency. Interdependency creates weakness and the potential for dangerous domino effects. This is a fact that globalists would never willingly admit to.

For now, it appears that the global slowdown will become undeniable in the next six months, either right before the US elections in November, or right after. Central banks have chosen to create this Catch-22 and they are, for whatever reason, stalling the big drop. My theory? They have a scapegoat (or scapegoats) in mind and they’re waiting for the right time to unleash the next chaotic event. Covid is gone, so they’re going to need a war, multiple wars, or political conflict in the west and in many other parts of the world as a distraction.

German industrial orders unexpectedly fall as 4 in 10 companies express concern over lack of business

Instead of rising by 0.4 percent as forecast, industrial orders in Germany fell by 0.4 percent in March, according to the latest published figures by the federal statistics office

By Thomas Brooke 3 hours ago Last updated: May 08, 2024 15:42

German companies are growing increasingly frustrated with the economic downturn affecting the country, with more businesses complaining about a lack of manufacturing orders, a recent study has shown.

According to the Munich Ifo Institute, 39.5 percent of German manufacturers across all industries don’t believe they are receiving enough orders, a problem many are concerned will lead to a drop in profitability that could in turn affect employment.

Disillusioned businesses are on the rise, with the figure cited in April 2.6 percentage points higher than in January.

“The lack of orders is hindering economic development in Germany,” warned Ifo expert Klaus Wohlrabe as cited by Welt. “Hardly any industry is spared.”

Some industries are being affected more than others, however. Nearly two-thirds (61.5 percent) of textile manufacturers are worried about their lack of business, while over half (53.9 percent) of paper manufacturers are feeling the pinch.

A significant number of businesses in other blue-collar industries including metal production companies and chemical producers are also questioning the lack of orders, with 50.6 percent and 46.6 percent, respectively, expressing their concern.

Germany’s economic landscape is having a knock-on effect on the labor market, evidenced by a lack of requests for temporary workers. Nearly two-thirds (63.9 percent) of recruitment agencies have complained about the lack of interest from employers in using their services, with businesses more focused on finding work for their existing employees than hiking their wage costs even further.

“The generally weak economic development is reducing the demand for temporary workers,” said Wohlrabe.

Some industries, however, are faring better than others and riding out the storm. Just 3 in 10 businesses within the automotive sector are concerned about orders, significantly better than the average.

German exports rebounded in March by 0.9 percent after declining by 1.9 percent in February, showing some signs of life, but companies remain fearful over their ability to operate over a lack of business.

Instead of rising by 0.4 percent as forecast, industrial orders fell by 0.4 percent in March, according to the latest published figures by the federal statistics office.

“The order situation is bringing economic optimists back down to earth,” said Alexander Krueger, chief economist at the bank Hauck Aufhaeuser Lampe, as cited by Reuters.

Commerzbank’s chief economist, Dr. Jörg Krämer, warned the downturn in orders would threaten Germany’s economic recovery in the second quarter of 2024 after the country narrowly dodged a recession in the first quarter when it reported growth of just 0.2 percent.

Sick campus protesters called for beheading of school president with chants of 'guillotine'

By Will Potter For Dailymail.Com

Published: 09:06 EDT, 8 May 2024 | Updated: 10:14 EDT, 8 May 2024

Pro-Palestine protestors at George Washington University called for the beheadings of school administrators before hostile clashes with police over ending their Gaza Encampment.

Footage taken on campus on Tuesday saw activists condemn GWU President Ellen Granberg and Provost Christopher Bracey to the 'guillotine.'

'Bracey, Bracey, we see you. You assault students too. Off to the motherf****** gallows with you,' the protesters were heard chanting as they held a mock court.

Hours later at around 3:30am, police descended on the encampment after they refused to end the illegal demonstration, with a total of 35 people arrested on campus, reports Fox News.

In footage shared to social media, the mock court saw young protestors sit in as proxies for Granberg, Bracey, the university's board of trustees, GW Police, and others they 'charge with genocide.'

A leader with a microphone led chants of 'guillotine', and said the board of trustees was charged with 'having a vested interest in the genocide of Palestinian people.'

'The people find you: Guilty!' the chants continued. 'I hope all that money is going to help you when you're rotting in jail.'

When she targeted Granberg, the lead activist condemned her for using 'all tuition dollars to fund genocide.'

The calls for guillotining came two weeks into GWU's Gaza Encampment, with university administrators growing frustrated with demonstrators after they refused to bring it to an end.

In recent days, antics by some protestors sparked outrage, including defacing a statue of George Washington by plastering it in 'Free Palestine' graffiti, flags and keffiyehs.

On Friday, footage of students and faculty on campus raised eyebrows as large numbers were seen participating in an Islam call to prayer on campus.

Protestors also projected an image of President Biden's face and an American flag on the side of a building, with the caption: 'Genocide Joe.'

On Tuesday, administrators warned that they would forcefully end the demonstrations, with Granberg declaring that 'at no point was the encampment lawful.'

'From the moment GW students declared their intent to establish and encampment on University Yard, they were in direct violation of multiple university policies and were trespassing on a space explicitly reserved for the GW Law final examinations,' the statement read.

'While the university is committed to protecting students’ rights to free expression, the encampment had evolved into an unlawful activity, with participants in direct violation of multiple university policies and city regulations.'

On Tuesday afternoon, some protestors reportedly marched on Granberg's home as a deadline to clear the campus neared.

Scenes turned ugly at the encampment overnight Wednesday as police cracked down on remaining protestors, using pepper spray to disperse crowds.

Dozens of people were arrested as protestors clashed with police, however no arrests were made at Granberg's home despite crowds remaining there for hours.

The overnight arrests were not the first time that GWU was rocked by hostile clashes, with protestors seen destroying barriers and facing off with police on April 29.

George Washington University is one of many colleges across the US to be rocked by anti-Israel protests in recent weeks.

At New York's Columbia University, Jewish students bravely shared their hostile encounters with protestors with DailyMail.com.

Rory Wilson, a 22-year-old history major, shared his story of how he stared down an anti-Israel mob, which left him 'pinned against the door' and fearing for his safety.

He said: 'After a friend and I worked our way into the heart of the crowd swarming around Hamilton Hall, I looked out at the masked, shouting masses lit by the constant flicker of cameras.

'My adrenaline soared. We started pulling back a table propped against the doors and the crowd realized we were not with them.

They started accusing us of aiding genocide and calling us idiots for risking ourselves for nothing.

'We were pinned against the door. I played contact sports in the past, so a bunch of shrieking Barnard girls half my size didn't faze me, but then a man dressed all in black jumped up beside us.

'He glared through the eye-slit in his mask – and I recognized that he had harassed me several days before, calling me a 'Zionist inbreeder.' I had no idea if he was a student or what he was willing to do.

'He started grabbing me, wrenching at my leg, trying to force me away from the doors. After a brief struggle, he jumped away and the screaming mob returned. Ultimately a friend got me out of there safely.

'Looking back now, I am grateful to God for the chance to have stood against them. Yet I am saddened that the university let the situation devolve into such chaos and intimidation.'

Ukrainian Military Attempts to Assassinate Zelensky

Posted May 7, 2024 by Martin Armstrong |

As I have warned, Zelensky is seen as a puppet of the West, and they are starting to realize that he is destroying all of Ukraine on orders from the American Neocons. I have been warning that any assassination of Zelensky will come from within. Ukraine has reached the same realization where there was an attempt to assassinate Hitler to save Germany.

Here, on our May 7th ECM target date, two Ukrainian colonels were arrested involving an internal attempt to assassinate Zelensky, who is widely seen as a traitor to his own people. When the last Ukrainian falls, he will be on a plane to Miami to live tax-free under the protection of the American Neocons.

That was the ONLY hope of saving Ukraine just as assassinating Hitler would have saved tens of millions of lives. ABSOLUTELY nobody in the West thinks twice about killing Russians or Ukrainians. The people are starting wake up, but it looks to be too late.

Russia’s Anti-Satellite Nuke Could Leave Lower Orbit Unusable, Test Vehicle May Already Be Deployed

New info has emerged from U.S. officials about Russia’s nuclear anti-satellite weapon and a test satellite that may be associated with it.

byJoseph Trevithick, Oliver Parken| PUBLISHED May 3, 2024 7:00 PM EDT

A senior U.S. government official has indicated that Russia already has some kind of clandestine testbed in space as part of its development of a nuclear-armed on-orbit anti-satellite weapon. This comes just days after another official warned Congress that this "indiscriminate" weapon, details about which first emerged publicly earlier this year, could be capable of rendering low Earth orbit completely unusable for a prolonged period of time.

Mallory Stewart, Assistant Secretary of State for Arms Control, Deterrence, and Stability, discussed Russia’s nuclear anti-satellite weapon developments in new detail today in a fireside chat that the Center for Strategic and International Studies think tank in Washington, D.C., hosted.

"The United States is extremely concerned that Russia may be considering the incorporation of nuclear weapons into its counterspace programs based on information we deem credible," Stewart said. "The United States has been aware of Russia's pursuit of this sort of capability dating back years, but only recently have we been able to make a more precise assessment of their progress."

Stewart stressed at multiple times during the conversation that the U.S. government has not assessed that Russia has "deployed" this capability in any way, and that American officials are actively trying to discourage that from happening.

However, the Assistant Secretary of State did indicate that something is in space now as part of the development of this new nuclear anti-satellite weapon.

"Russia has publicly claimed that their satellite is for scientific purposes," Stewart said "However, the orbit is in a region not used by any other spacecraft. That in itself was somewhat unusual. And the orbit is a region of higher radiation than normal, lower earth orbits, but not high enough of a radiation environment to allow accelerated testing of electronics as Russia has described the purpose to be."

Stewart did not name the satellite in question or elaborate on its claimed purpose. Putting some kind of testbed in orbit before deploying an actual space-based weapon system, especially one involving a nuclear weapon system, would make good sense. This would be even more prudent if the orbit passes through areas where there is increased radiation risks, the Van Allen belts, something we will come back to later.

Stewart speaking at the CSIS event earlier today. CSIS

The Assistant Secretary of State did provide some additional context about the anti-satellite capability that Russia is using that platform, at least in part, to help develop.

"We aren't talking about a weapon that can be used to attack humans or cause structural damage on Earth," according to Stewart. "Instead… our analysts assess that detonation [of a nuclear device] in a particular placement in orbit of a magnitude and location would render lower Earth orbit unusable for a certain amount of time." Low Earth Orbit (LEO) refers to a band of space that measures roughly 100 miles to 1,200 miles above the earth, and which is highly congested. Many capabilities that are highly important to society exist in this orbital realm.

In talking about the projected anti-satellite weapon’s capabilities, Stewart also referenced remarks from Assistant Secretary of Defense for Space Policy John Plumb earlier this week. Plumb discussed this same topic at a hearing before members of the House Armed Services Committee on May 1. There, he answered questions on a written statement to Congress regarding the Department of Defense's 2025 Fiscal Year budget request.

"The concept that we are concerned about is Russia developing and — if we are unable to convince them otherwise — to ultimately fly a nuclear weapon in space," Plumb said earlier in the week. This concerns an "indiscriminate weapon [that] doesn't have national boundaries, [and] doesn't determine between military satellites, civilian satellites or commercial satellites," Plumb said.

When pressed by Representative Mike Turner (R-Ohio), who chairs the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, on the impact that detonating such a weapon in space could have, Plumb indicated that coming to a definitive conclusion remains challenging. However, he did note that "satellites that aren't hardened against nuclear detonation space, which is most satellites, could be damaged [and] affected... Some would be caught in an immediate blast which... would not be able to survive the flux of that, and then others could be damaged over time."

Here, Plumb referred to the impact of 'nuclear pumping' in the aforementioned Van Allen Belts — high energy radiation particles that form two belts that surround the Earth like donuts. Nuclear pumping refers to a phenomenon where nuclear radiation lingers in the LEO environment.

The effects of this were demonstrated during the U.S. Starfish Prime nuclear test in 1962, which "pumped" the LEO region with radiation, taking down numerous satellites.

Concerningly, Plumb indicated that LEO could feasibly be rendered unusable for a year if Russia's new weapon was detonated in space. As he noted in his written testimony, Plumb stipulated that this would seriously threaten "all satellites operated by countries and companies around the globe, as well as to the vital communications, scientific, meteorological, agricultural, commercial, and national security services we all depend upon."

On the developmental status of Russia's nuclear-armed anti-satellite weapon, Plumb said that specific details could only be discussed in closed session. He did note that the threat isn't "imminent in the way that we should have to worry about it right now." "But," he added, "we are concerned about it... [both] the Department [of Defense] and the entire [Biden] administration, and I know this Congress is taking this deadly seriously."

While further details on the progress on the weapon, beyond Mallory and Plumb's recent comments, aren't available outside of the classified realm, there have been recent indications that Russia is actively pursuing such a capability. In late April, Russia vetoed a United Nations (U.N.) Security Council resolution, proposed by the U.S. and Japan. Said resolution directed members to uphold Article 4 of the 1967 Outer Space Treaty, which Russia signed 56 years ago, forbidding countries from placing nuclear weapons in orbit or on celestial bodies. The treaty also prohibits countries from developing nuclear weapons, or other weapons of mass destruction, for use in orbit.

The White House condemned Russia's decision to veto the resolution at the time, constituting the first public confirmation by the U.S. government that Russia's new anti-satellite weapon is nuclear-armed. Previously, this had only been attributed to anonymous official sources.

In a statement released on April 24, National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said that "the United States assesses that Russia is developing a new satellite carrying a nuclear device. We have heard President Putin say publicly that Russia has no intention of deploying nuclear weapons in space. If that were the case, Russia would not have vetoed this resolution."

Russia has since circulated its own U.N. resolution on the matter of space-based nuclear weapons that not only calls for preventing such weapons from being deployed in space, but also stopping “the threat or use of force in outer space" for "all time.”

The matter of Russia's vetoing of the resolution will be deliberated on in the U.N. General Assembly on May 6, Stewart said today, which will be open to all U.N. member nations. The U.S. has also been leveraging its diplomatic resources to bolster international opposition to Russia's decision, she confirmed, having already consulted with U.N. members China and India.

"I think the international response [to the existence of the weapon] should be outreach," Stewart said, "because it affects everyone right, every single country is indiscriminate in its potential effect. So it's much different than efforts to hold us at risk limited to just the U.S. and our partners [and] allies. It would affect everyone including China and India, and Russia's own satellites. So it's extraordinarily destabilizing, and I think the international community needs to reflect that concern."

That being said, the existence of Russia's nuclear anti-satellite weapon is concerning to the U.S. government and military for a host of reasons. Space represents an absolutely critical domain and is essential for the day-to-day functioning of the U.S. military. Moreover, it has in place various programs for developing distributed space-based capabilities, supporting early warning and missile-defense type missions, as well as intelligence-gathering and surveillance, communications and data-sharing, where satellite use is key. The United States' advantage in space is clearly something adversaries are seeking to negate, potentially at great cost.

Already, adversaries such as Russia and China have developed various anti-satellite weapons, including direct ascent interceptors, 'killer satellites,' electronic warfare jammers, and lasers. The collective threat posed by these adversarial capabilities has been previously described as "extremely concerning" by the U.S. Space Force's top officer Gen. Chance Saltzman. In response, the U.S. armed forces have explored the use of different commercial options, including systems like SpaceX's Starlink, for conducting future operations via distributed satellite constellations.

And while U.S. adversaries look for new ways to target massive constellations of smaller satellites in LEO, it's possible that deploying nuclear weapons in that region — as dangerous a prospect as this would be for all space users — may look increasingly attractive to other countries aside from just Russia.

DARPA

Beyond the military aspect, once again, the loss of low earth orbit would be hugely impactful to life on Earth. The economic damage that such a weapon could do is hard to even quantify. Replacing space-based capabilities after the radiation cleared would take a very long time and LEO may be so cluttered with space junk at that point that it may not be reliably inhabitable at all for much longer than how long damaging radiation would persist.

The entire idea of this weapon is very troublesome and the use of it could set humanity back significantly for a long time.

If anything else, these new revelations about Russia's nuclear anti-satellite weapon underscore just how real a battlefield space is becoming.

Israel Is Shooting Down A Lot Of Its Own Drones

Israeli difficulties in separating friendly drones from hostile ones underscore critical issues that U.S. forces also need to address.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) are knocking down a substantial number of their own drones in the course of operations, a U.S. Marine Corps officer has disclosed. This underscores serious challenges that air defense forces in the U.S. military also face in telling friendly and hostile drones apart as uncrewed aerial systems (UAS), as well as loitering munitions, become ever more ubiquitous even in operations involving very small units.

Marine Lt. Col. Michael Pruden, head of the Marine Air Command and Control Integration Branch of the Air Combat Element Division within the service's Combat Development and Integration Command (CD&I), provided details about the IDF's experiences to The War Zone and other attendees during a talk at the annual Modern Day Marine exposition yesterday. The Marine Corps is separately in the process of significantly expanding its air and missile defense forces and their capabilities, with a particular eye toward growing drone threats, as you can read more about here.

"Something interesting that comes from Israel, 40 percent, 40 percent [this figure was repeated for emphasis], of the UASs ... knocked out" by Israel are instances of "friendly fire," Pruden said.

Pruden did not contextualize this figure, such as where those shootdowns occurred or over what timeframe. He did imply that this data has come from recent Israeli operations, especially in the Gaza Strip, following the terrorist attacks on the southern end of the country last year. Hamas used drones in its initial attacks on October 7, 2023, and various Iranian-backed militant groups across the Middle East, as well as Iran itself, have since launched drone attacks on Israel.

"As Israel's engaging in Gaza, and they're on their front line, they see a small UAS, what are they going to do if it's not identified immediately?" Pruden also said. "They're going to shoot it down."

Pruden added that this is the default course of action because the time between when a drone might be detected and when it could execute an attack of some kind is often measured in "seconds."

Israel had faced myriad drone threats long before October 2023. The IDF has acknowledged accidental shootdowns of friendly drones in the past, as well. That being said, the IDF has arguably the most advanced integrated air defense system on the planet. So the fact that this is a huge issue for them, doesn't bode well for other militaries.

Regardless, Pruden's remarks yesterday make clear that rapidly discriminating between friendly and hostile UASs is a major issue for the IDF. It is also one that the Marine Corps and the rest of the U.S. military will increasingly have to contend with. Just in February, the German Navy's Sachsen class frigate FGS Hessen almost shot down a U.S. MQ-9 Reaper drone flying over the Red Sea in a case of mistaken identity, underscoring the complexities that present in future operations, including ones involving foreign coalition partners.

In his talk, the Marine officer laid out a core problem as his service sees it: "How am I putting a small UAS in the sky, thousands of these things, and not telling anybody about it, especially your ground-based air defense and counter-UAS [elements]?"

The Marine Corps, as well as other branches of the U.S. military, are increasingly fielding smaller UASs to even very small units. The Marines are also pushing to field man-portable loitering munitions, also commonly referred to as kamikaze drones, along with launchers for these weapons on ground vehicles and uncrewed surface vessels.

Tiers of larger drones, including armed and cargo-carrying types, will also be in the mix. For the Marine Corps, uncrewed logistics platforms, in the air and at sea, are seen as a critical component of how service will sustain forces during future expeditionary and distributed operations. That planning is heavily centered on a potential island-hopping campaign scenario in the Pacific as part of a large-scale conflict with China.

Altogether, for the Marines, in particular, it is not hard to imagine future operations where the skies are full of hundreds, if not thousands of drones and loitering munitions all zooming about in different directions and performing a host of different tasks. Discriminating between friend and foe could be particularly problematic when it comes to smaller UASs that cannot necessarily carry specialized systems to broadcast their identity securely that traditional military aircraft use to avoid friendly fire incidents.

"How do I tell someone I'm just chucking something in the sky ... how am I actually doing that without having an IFF [Identification Friend or Foe] interrogator on the system, without taking away time on station capability from that UAS?" Lt. Col. Pruden said. And if it's too small ... I need to be able to put these things up there, but how am I telling ... [people] that I'm putting something in the sky?"

"How am I pushing out when it goes off track and it's supposed to be on a self-route that's notifying someone that hey, do not shoot me down?" Pruden added, speaking about issues specifically related to future cargo UAS operations. "If I shoot down something that is friendly in a forward contested logistical environment, I just took away capability from the rest of the [force]."

The rest of the U.S. military is facing the same kinds of future drone discrimination concerns, as well.

"We're very excited obviously by current operations associated with MQ-4, MQ-9, and in the future MQ-25," Secretary of the Navy Carlos Del Toro told members of the House Armed Services Committee at a hearing yesterday. "We are very much planning the integration of MQ-25, for example, with the integrated air missile defense systems so that we can recognize that the MQ-25 is operating out there ... while we're actually protecting the entire carrier strike group."

These issues, as Pruden noted himself in talking about the IDF's experiences, are not new, nor is the general threat posed by drones, which U.S. forces are still playing catch-up in addressing. The war in Ukraine has provided a prime example of just how dense and ubiquitous various tiers of drone operations can be expected to be in any future larger-scale fight. Just monitoring all of that activity, possibly thousands of target tracks at a time, which may be spread across areas big or small, is a complex proposition. Discriminating between friends and foes presents even more challenges.

Potentially malign drone use is becoming increasingly an issue outside of traditional battlefields. At the same time, the general use of uncrewed aerial systems is growing, and not just with military and other security forces forces. As such, this is really a broader domain awareness challenge that also has implications for defending the U.S. homeland.

In addition, as autonomous technologies improve, the default of knowing friendly drones are for command and control purposes will decrease, making discrimination that much more complicated. It has already become very clear thanks to the fighting in Ukraine that direct control links between drones and their operators are not just vulnerable, but offer signals that enemy forces can detect, giving away the drone's presence, as well as helping to locate friendly positions.

These are all things opponents will have to contend with, too.

As part of his discussion yesterday, Pruden stressed that the Marine Corps is still very early in efforts to address the issue of telling apart friendly and hostile drones. New sensors and communications networks, as well as other capabilities, potentially leveraging artificial intelligence and machine learning, could be part of the final equation.

Pruden described a desired end state where he could simply look at a tablet screen or video feed and have it simply say "here comes a small UAS, that is ours."

"That's what we're looking at, and that's hard to do," he noted.

At the same time, Israel shooting down significant numbers of friendly drones in the course operations makes clear that discrimination issues present real problems now that will be critical for armed forces around the world, including the U.S. Marine Corps, to address.

Nostalgia for the Mud

May 3, 2024  Guest Post by Jim Kunstler

Resentful childless harpies unconsciously longing for domination. Why else worship at the altar of Hamas? Why else would it be so overwhelmingly female?” — Dr. Jordan Peterson

Wasn’t it cute how the youngsters who “occupied” Columbia U’s Hamilton Hall — and were busy smashing things up insidedemanded restaurant-grade meals sent in to avert “starvation and dehydration” amongst their dauntless ranks? You could imagine a colossal mommy breast with three hundred nipples descending from the sky over upper Manhattan to nourish them back to action. “Feed me. . . !”

It turns out, actually, that at least half the troops inside were not students at all, but rather semi-pro activists paid up to $7,000 each by George Soros’s Open Society Institute and other overtly insurrection-themed orgs, so you’d think that the troops could afford to load-up their ever-ready backpacks with Cliff bars and bottles of Smart Water. The order-in food and beverage gambit suggests we should understand that this is not so much politics as the acting out of a game — which is exactly what you might expect of people who spend more time on video screens than in the real world — in which something like a half-time intermission for refreshments is de rigueur.

Alas, they were not obliged with Doordash servings of Alitcha (“Ensemble of potatoes, carrots, collard greens, and cabbage baked in turmeric,” $22.30) from the nearby Massawa Ethiopian bistro, or Firecracker Chicken from Junzi Kitchen over on Broadway and 113th Street. And then, when the cops came to roust them out into the big buses now used as paddy-wagons for such events, the occupiers were heard to whine, “I have finals and I need to go home!” You’ve got to wonder how they’ll make out when “Joe Biden” drafts their ass to go fight the Russians out on the Ukrainian buzzard flats, about which the White House is just now sending out early signals.

It has been observed that a clear majority of the pro-Hamas activists are young women — which makes sense considering that they are the largest demographic evincing mental illness on America’s social landscape these days. Thus, they are marching in support of a sect that specializes in the rape, mutilation, and murder of young women like themselves, or at least treats them as chattels, hidden under black bag-like garments. The group psychology on display has more occult angles than any movie by the Wachowski sisters.

Among the marching Columbia students who are not paid outside activists, a few are apparently Jewish, such as spokesperson Johanna King-Slutzky (actual name, hat-tip Alex Berenson, who ID’d her), the winsome creature who complained about the lack of order-in meals at Hamilton Hall. Another observer on “X” who styles himself @J9_ATX identified the syndrome in play as “oppression envy,” among women seeking compensatory validation for occupying such a privileged niche on Planet Earth as a cushy Ivy League college — featuring international cuisine stations in the dining halls — while their third world sisters trudge through the burning sands of Al-Kufra carrying water-jugs on their heads as they dodge the odious “wind scorpions” of the region.

Higher Ed in the USA was already chugging down the suicide track before this spring’s eruption of pro-Hamas fury. The college loan racket (government-backed) had the perverse effect of pumping up tuition costs beyond what even many pretty well-off families could afford, while loading up young people with life-wrecking obligations (debt which “Joe Biden is now shifting onto the creditors, US tax-payers). Decades of DEI have filled the faculties with incompetents and assorted malcontents teaching fantasy curricula with no real-life value, and burdened the schools with cadres of overpaid diversity busybodies and thought-police. Diversity college presidents are very publicly failing to cope. The whole rotten train is going off the rails.

I’m not at all sanguine that the society we are becoming will need this vast infrastructure for babysitting young adults who could otherwise make themselves useful and productive on-the-ground in lines of work that actually keep civilized life going. This is too self-evident now to belabor, though there is an awful lot of confusion about what kind of society we might become.

I doubt that it is to be the utopia of robots, A-I, and non-stop sexual titillation that the techno-narcissists dream of. Rather, it will be a society struggling to keep too much complex stuff running with insufficient energy resources and capital that is, a society falling apart, losing knowledge, technical know-how, comfort, and convenience while having a hard time feeding itself.

The campus Hamas zealots ironically (and tragically) represent exactly the sort of rough medievalism that the citizens of Western Civ countries would be chary of sliding into. You’d have to sadly conclude that many young people really can’t take much more Modernity, and are now pretty avid to opt out of it, even as they gaze into the magic, glowing pixels of their iPhone screens.

They Lied to You: Biden Regime Issues Rule Change to Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare to Illegal Aliens – Obama Promised This Would Never Happen

by Cullen Linebarger May. 3, 2024 8:20 pm

During the debate over Obamacare back in 2010, then-President Barack Obama solemnly vowed before America illegal aliens would never have access to his healthcare proposal. In response to the pledge, Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) screamed, “You lie!” and was booed by the House of Representatives.

Wilson’s words have now proved prophetic. On Friday, the Biden regime issued a final rule change to expand Obamacare coverage to younger illegals (Dreamers) who have been allowed to stay in the United States under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

As Gateway Pundit readers know, DACA was illegally created in 2012 by the Obama regime in a ploy to win over Hispanic voters in the 2012 Presidential election. The program provided work permits to illegals who entered the U.S. illegals while still minors.

Roughly 500,000 illegal aliens were protected from deportation thanks to DACA, but none received healthcare coverage until now.

The White House issued a news release that illegals covered by DACA can start applying for coverage in Obamacare and state healthcare marketplaces in November, just in time for the 2024 election.

They also boasted that more than 100,000 illegals would qualify for the program while bragging about the unconstitutional DACA policy.

Today, the Biden-Harris Administration is expanding access to affordable, quality healthcare coverage to Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients. In 2012, President Obama and then Vice President Biden created the DACA policy to transform the lives of eligible Dreamers – young people who came to this country as children—allowing them to live and work lawfully in our country. Over the last decade, DACA has brought stability, possibility, and progress to hundreds of thousands of Dreamers.

While President Biden continues to call on Congress to provide a pathway to citizenship to Dreamers and others, he is committed to protecting and preserving DACA and providing Dreamers with the opportunities and support they need to succeed, including access to affordable, quality health care coverage. Thanks to the Biden-Harris Administration’s actions, today’s final rule will remove the prohibition on DACA recipients’ eligibility for Affordable Care Act coverage for the first time, and is projected to help more than 100,000 young people gain health insurance. Starting in November, DACA recipients can apply for coverage through HealthCare.gov and state-based marketplaces, where they may qualify for financial assistance to help them purchase quality health insurance. Four out of five consumers have found a plan for less than $10 a month, with millions saving an average of about $800 a year on their premiums.

President Biden and Vice President Harris believe that health care should be a right, not a privilege. Together, they promised to protect and strengthen the Affordable Care Act, lowering costs and expanding coverage so that every American has the peace of mind that health insurance brings. Today’s final rule delivers on the President’s commitment by giving DACA recipients that same peace and opportunity.

Today’s rule also reinforces the President’s enduring commitment to DACA recipients and Dreamers, who contribute daily to the strength and vitality of our communities and our country. On day one of his Administration, President Biden committed to preserving and fortifying the DACA policy. While only Congress can provide Dreamers permanent status and a pathway to citizenship, the Biden-Harris Administration has continued to vigorously defend DACA against ongoing legal challenges and strengthened DACA by codifying the 2012 policy in a final rule.

The New York Post estimates the unconstitutional rule change will cost taxpayers up to $300 million. All of this while our southern border remains open and millions of Americans struggle to keep a roof over their heads.

However, under the Biden regime, Americans always come last.

Long Beach declares health emergency over tuberculosis outbreak that killed 1 person

By David González KABC logo  Friday, May 3, 2024 2:03PM

Deadly tuberculosis outbreak in Long Beach linked to hotel

A tuberculosis outbreak among residents of a single-room occupancy hotel in Long Beach has left one person dead and led to the hospitalizations of nine others.

LONG BEACH, Calif. (KABC) -- A deadly outbreak of tuberculosis in Long Beach has forced city health officials to declare a public health emergency.

Dr. Anissa Davis, health officer for the city of Long Beach, said they're working to stop the disease from spreading.

There have been 14 tuberculosis cases linked to a private single room occupancy hotel as of Monday. Davis said nine people have had to be hospitalized, and one person has died.

Due to patient privacy laws, the name of the hotel can't be released, but people who were staying there could have been exposed to the disease.

"It just highlights the urgency of being able to really identify people who were exposed to this group and get them screened," Davis said.

This outbreak is concentrated among people experiencing homelessness. Davis said as many as 170 people may have been exposed to TB.

"Because of that it has required more resources than our regular day-to-day can provide, and so a declaration of a localized public health emergency was necessary in order to rapidly get the resources that we need to respond to this outbreak effectively," she said.

Tuberculosis is a bacterial disease that spreads through the air. Symptoms can include lingering cough, chills, night sweats and weight loss.

The particles are inhaled, but Davis said it takes long term exposure for someone to get sick.

"So you really have to be around somebody for a prolonged period of time in order to really get that infection from them, so we see it a lot in like households and congregate settings and things like that," she said, stressing that the risk to the general public is low.

Tuberculosis is very treatable with the right medication. Davis said anyone who thinks they may have been exposed to the disease should contact the health department at (562) 570-7907.

Russia and US on brink of WW3 as fears grow of major conflict in one African country

American special force units have been based in Niger for some eleven years, carrying out counter-terrorism operations against Islamic jihadis.

By John Varga

16:29, Fri, May 3, 2024 | UPDATED: 16:29, Fri, May 3, 2024

Russian and US troops stand on the brink of a major military confrontation, after being forced to share the same barracks in an African country.

American special force units have been based in Niger for some eleven years, carrying out counter-terrorism operations against Islamic jihadis.

The soldiers have been operating out of a military camp known as AirBase 101, providing support to the Niger government.

However relations between Washington and Niamey soured after army officers toppled President Mohamed Bazoum's regime in July last year, while fears of WW3 continue to escalate.

The White House condemned the coup, infuriating the new military junta led by General Abdourahamane Tiani.

In March the US was told to withdraw its troops from the West African country, which has turned to Russia for assistance fighting Islamist insurgents in the south of the country.

Putin's troops arrived recently in Niger and have been allocated quarters in the same base as the Americans.

With tensions already running high between Russia and the US over Ukraine, there are genuine fears that the two sides could come to blows.

US Defence Secretary Lloyd Austin tried to play down the risks of a confrontation, saying the situation was under control.

British Foreign Secretary: Ukraine Can Use British Missiles Against Russian Territory

Hal Turner World May 03, 2024 Hits: 14455

UK Foreign Secretary David Cameron said today, Ukraine CAN use British weapons to hit deep inside Russia Territory. He also promised Kiev over $3 billion in military aid annually for “as long as it takes.”

"Ukraine has the right to use weapons provided by London to strike targets on Russian territory" British Foreign Secretary David Cameron has declared, in an interview with Reuters on Thursday during a visit to Kiev.

The senior diplomat, who also served as UK Prime Minister from 2010 to 2016, met with Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky, Prime Minister Denis Shmygal and Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba, promising London’s “unequivocal support” and annual military aid payments.

We will give three billion pounds ($3.74 billion) every year for as long as is necessary. We’ve just really emptied all we can in terms of giving equipment,” Cameron told the outlet, noting that some of the British weapons earmarked for Ukraine would be arriving to the country during his visit.

The foreign secretary noted that among the weapons donated to Kiev are precision-guided bombs, air defense missiles and equipment for 100 mobile air defense teams.

Cameron stated that Ukraine has the “right” to use arms provided by London to strike targets inside Russia if that’s how it wants to use them.

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

Hal Turner Snap Analysis

This is a massive escalation on the part of the UK and may be the lynchpin to Russia declaring Britain a "combatant."

If person "A" provides a gun to person "B" and person B uses that gun to shoot Person "C" then Person "A" facilitated that attack and is an accessory before the fact and goes to prison, too.

I don't see any reason that state actors can't be held to that same legal standard.

UN Official Advocates For ‘Digital Integrity Code’ To Tackle ‘Health Misinformation’

ago 2 days

by Jacob M. Thompson

7 Comments

United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Global Communications Melissa Fleming recently gave a speech at Boston University’s Center for Emerging Diseases, explaining what can be done to combat so-called health mis- and disinformation generated by AI, and presented accepting a “digital integrity code” later this year.

In a press release from the school, BU wrote:

“In the post-pandemic era, artificial intelligence (AI) has played a major role in the dissemination of information. AI has also facilitated the spread of misinformation and disinformation across social media platforms through algorithms that amplify posts designed to generate outrage and de-prioritize posts from institutions like the United Nations, which work to dispel these false narratives.

From hate speech to conspiracy theories, AI-fueled misinformation and disinformation serves to polarize society and create a harmful online environment. The World Economic Forum identified the threat from misinformation and disinformation as the most severe short-term threat facing the world today,” the university said.

Those who might have been screaming in a park with an audience of three now have the ability to reach thousands, if not millions of people. One of our biggest worries is the ease with which new technologies can help spread misinformation easier and cheaper, and that this content can be produced at scale and far more easily personalized and targeted.

Fleming claimed, speaking of AI

Fleming contended that there are three main things under attack by these misinformation campaigns: mistrust of vaccines, climate change denial, and misogyny.

‘In fact, if someone searches for information about vaccines online, there is around a 78% chance of finding misinformation or disinformation,’ BU says. Fleming claimed that celebrities and recognizable figures are hesitant to promote the wonders of vaccination because it may get them canceled, she said.

Fleming blasted who she refers to as “merchants of outrage,” people who know how to work the algorithms for their benefit to make money and viral content, who in particular use the platforms to push climate denialism.” Fleming named Elon Musk’s X as the main culprit, but explained what the UN does to combat this ‘misinformation.’

Since Elon Musk took over X (formerly known as Twitter), all of the climate deniers are back, and [the platform] has become a space for all kinds of climate disinformation. There is a connection that people in the anti-vaccine sphere are now shifting to the climate change denial sphere.

Instead of putting an X over the post, we are trying to find clever, positive, solutions-focused approaches to promote content on the benefits of renewable energy. This content subtly addresses the disinformation and injects climate solutions and fact-driven arguments into the posts. This approach gives people solutions for the future, and makes our future selves say thank you.

Fleming explained.

Fleming also explained that AI is being used in misogynistic attacks. ‘Generative AI is also being used to silence, intimidate, and humiliate women and girls, including death threats, rape threats, and humiliated doctored photos, is increasingly being used as a weapon to shut down critics, such as leaders, politicians, activists, journalists, and other women,’ the college said in their report.

In order to combat these things, Fleming announced the The Humanly Possible campaign (which launched on April 24th), which promotes how many lives have been saved by vaccination. It aims to “celebrate vaccines as one of humanity’s greatest achievements, up there with landing on the moon,” Fleming said.

Fleming also announced the creation of an official UN code of conduct on information integrity in the digital space, which is purported to be ready in June.

This code […] represents a push for coordinated International action to make the digital space overall more safe, more inclusive and while vigorously protecting human rights, holding digital platforms to account, and encouraging them to live up to their own standards so that they stop rewarding and incentivizing harmful content, and to push back against the proliferation of disinformation and hate.

She said

Fleming and the UN have been working to counter ‘disinformation’ for years. In 2022, during a World Economic Forum meeting, Fleming revealed some of the ways they were working with social media companies to recontrol the narrative. She admitted that the UN worked with TikTok to give “verified ticks” to their appointed propagandists to push narratives aligned wit the UN. SEE: United Nations’ Melissa Fleming SaysWe Own The Science’ And Openly Manipulate The Media, During World Economic Forum Meeting

We had another trusted messenger project which was called Team Halo, where we trained scientists around the world and some doctors on Tik-Tok, and we had Tik-Tok working with us,

And these scientists who virtually had no following to start with, got ‘verified ticks.’ They started bringing people in their community into their labs, into their offices, and answering their questions and engaging with them.

It really took off, and many of them became like national media go-to advisors. […] So it was a layered deployment of ideas and tactics […]

People need to be inoculated themselves, and I think social media took off so quickly, that, I think people of all ages are very ill-equipped, especially in times of crisis when they’re feeling very engaged with what’s out there, and searching, and wanting to help, and wanting to share – really learning actually how to spot mis and disinformation, and how not to be part of the problem.

She said at the time

Moreover, last October Fleming also revealed the UN was working to use a tactic called “pre-bunking,” a scheme that plants key information in the mind of the viewer, so when they encounter something that goes contrary to the narrative they will know to reject it.

Sander van der Linden, a social psychologist at Cambridge University, and the author of his new book “Foolproof: Why We Fall for Misinformation and How to Build Immunity,” says this prebunking will act as some ‘sort of herd immunity when it comes to false information,’ he said.

Pre-bunking is the opposite of debunking. It is a preemptive technique based on the idea of physiological inoculation.

So, just as vaccines expose people to a weakened dose of a virus to try to trigger the production of antibodies to help prevent future infection, you preemptively try to refute a future falsehood or to take techniques that are used to dupe people online so they can build up mental antibodies and in the future they are partly immune to disinformation.

He told Euro News

AUTHOR COMMENTARY

The censorship being witnessed and felt in 2024 has been some of the most swift and punishing so far, and it is only going to get worse in the run-up to the elections this year around the world, none more so than U.S., along with a new reescalation of the war machine, cyber warfare, pandemics, and more.

AI is a problem, we know that; but it is the big tech companies in collusion with governments and multinationals that are the ones that created this problem in the first place. But, this is the typical Hegelian Dialectic at play: problem, reaction, solution. The “solution” is more censorship, and ultimately digital IDs and thusly social credit scores tethered to CBDCs and tokenization.

And let’s not act like Musk is some whitehat guy acting on the outside: he’s in the club with them, he’s just another distraction, and there is a mountain of evidence to prove that.

Proverbs 16:27 An ungodly man diggeth up evil: and in his lips there is as a burning fire. [28] A froward man soweth strife: and a whisperer separateth chief friends. [29] A violent man enticeth his neighbour, and leadeth him into the way that is not good. [30] He shutteth his eyes to devise froward things: moving his lips he bringeth evil to pass.

[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).

More than 2,100 arrested at anti-Israel protests nationwide as police clear college encampments

Police and law enforcement have made thousands of arrests as anti-Israel agitators continue to protest in encampments on college campuses across the nation. Some colleges have struck deals with protesters to review their investments in Israel.

Fast Facts

Anti-Israel protests have spread nationwide since an protesters first formed an encampment on Columbia University's campus on April 17.

Columbia University authorized NYPD to restore order the following day, April 18, and more than 100 of the protesters were arrested.

The initial arrests sparked a movement on college campuses across the country, including at the University of Texas at Austin, the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, and the University of California, Los Angeles.

More than 2,100 protesters have been arrested at colleges and universities in recent weeks, including students, faculty, and outside agitators.

Chicago Art Institute protesters steal keys to building and barricade themselves, school says

A group of anti-Israel protesters stole the keys to a building at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago campus on Saturday and barricaded themselves inside for several hours, despite being offered amnesty, administrators said.

A group began protesting in the north garden property at the campus before shoving a security guard and taking the keys to a museum, an Art Institute spokesperson told Fox News Digital. They then blocked emergency exits and barricaded the gates, officials said.

The school offered the protesters an alternative location to continue their protest on campus, which was was refused, officials said.

"During multiple rounds of negotiations, SAIC student protesters were promised amnesty from academic sanction and trespassing charges if they agreed to relocate," the spokesperson said. "The School also agreed to meet with a student group to discuss their demands."

After five hours of unsuccessful negotiations, the Chicago Police Department ended the protest and arrested 50 people.

Columbia president Shafik calls last 2 weeks ‘among the most difficult’ in school's history

Columbia University's embattled President Minouche Shafik on Friday called the last two weeks "among the most difficult in Columbia's history," as anti-Israel protests continue to rage on the New York City campus.

Shafik, speaking publicly for the first time about the long-running demonstrations that have taken over the campus since police cleared an occupied campus building in a video message posted to the university’s social media, said the "turmoil, tension, division and disruption have impacted the entire community.

"She noted that the students have "paid an especially high price" by losing out on the final days of the year in classrooms and residence halls — "For those of you who are seniors, you’re finishing college the same way you started: online."

Shafik’s speech came days after police raided the university’s Hamilton Hall administration building after it was illegally occupied by protesters.

"We tried very hard to resolve the issue of the encampment through dialogue," she said. "Many of the people who gathered there were largely peaceful and cared deeply about the humanitarian crisis in Gaza."

This is an excerpt from Fox News Digital's Brie Stimson's report.

Late night ‘primal screams’ becoming new way to address college presidents in NYC

Pulling a page from the protesters’ guide to harassing Columbia University’s president, anti-Israel agitators have reportedly screamed outside the home of the New York University president.

They’re called “primal screams,” according to social media posts this week.

“Inspired by students at Columbia, students at NYU participated in a midnight primal scream outside NYU President Linda Mills’ apartment tonight,” Talia Jane tweeted. “This comes after NYU signed off on a 6am raid and sweep of their peaceful encampment protest calling on the university to divest from death.”

This happened two days after protesters gathered outside Columbia University President Nemat “Minouche” Shafik’s home in New York City following arrests on the Ivy League campus.

Here’s that primal scream on Thursday.

National police union blames UCLA administration for lack of response to protests

The Federated University Police Officers Association (FUPOA) leader said Saturday that it was UCLA administrators to blame for a "lack of response" to anti-Israel protests on campus last week that resulted in violence, hundreds of arrests and turmoil on campus.

"UC administrators are solely responsible for the University’s response to campus protests, and they own all the fallout from those responses," FUPOA President Wade Stern said in a press release Saturday, according to Fox 11 in Los Angeles.

Hundreds of anti-Israel protesters set up encampments Tuesday on UCLA's campus in Royce Quad, demanding, in-part, that the university divest from "companies and institutions that are complicit in the Israeli occupation, apartheid, and genocide of the Palestinian people."

Then, a hundred or so pro-Israel counter-protesters showed up and an ensuing skirmish took place between the two encampments. There was no law enforcement present for at least three and a half hours.

On Wednesday night, heading into Thursday morning, there was finally a large police presence. Local and state police ripped apart the pro-Palestinian encampment and arrested more than 200 people.

The FUPOA said an investigation will "undoubtedly uncover multiple failures to implement and adhere to UC’s own guidelines for response to campus protests."

"The UCLA administration has much to answer for in the upcoming probe, and their adherence to established guidelines should play a central part," the police union's statement read.

Fox 11 Los Angeles contributed to this report.

University of Virginia police arrest 25 anti-Israel protesters while trying to clear encampment

At least 25 anti-Israel protesters were arrested at the University of Virginia campus Saturday as authorities tried to clear an encampment, the school said.

Campus police declared an “unlawful assembly” earlier in the day after UVA Police Chief Tim Longo gave a group of anti-Israel protesters near the University Chapel 10 minutes to leave the area.

At 8:15 a.m., officials tried to collect tents and were met with "agitation and chanting" from protesters, the school said in a news release.

Authorities were again met with agitation, chanting and violent gestures such as swinging of objects,” the school said. “Beginning at around 2:30 p.m., UPD gave the crowd three verbal warnings that an unlawful assembly would be declared if demonstrators refused to leave the area.”

The Virginia State Police responded to the campus to assist local authorities. The scene was declared “stable” around 4 p.m.

The protesters have repeatedly refused to comply with university policies regarding protests over several days, school President Jim Ryan said Saturday in a message to students and staff.

"Unfortunately, a small group today made a choice to willingly break the rules after being given many opportunities to comply, and they then refused to leave the site voluntarily," Ryan said. "I sincerely wish it were otherwise, but this repeated and intentional refusal to comply with reasonable rules intended to secure the safety, operations, and rights of the entire university community left us with no other choice than to uphold the neutral application and enforcement of those rules."

At least 25 people were arrested on suspicion of trespassing and were taken to the Albemarle County Regional Jail. University officials were still waiting for confirmation on how many of those arrested were affiliated with the school.

Conservative beer brand plans 'Frat Boy Summer' celebrating college students who defended US flag

A "woke-free" beer company that launched last year hoping to rival Bud Light will host an event Tuesday at a University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill fraternity house to celebrate the actions of the students who defended the American flag from anti-Israel protesters on campus earlier this week.

Dubbed the "Frat Boy Summer Kickoff," the event will be held at the Kappa Alpha Order fraternity house and will be hosted by the Ultra Right Beer Company.

"We're trying to get this very organic, just a good old-fashioned, frat row, beer party," said Seth Weathers, CEO of Ultra Right Beer Company, told Fox News Digital. "I love what the kids did, obviously, protecting the flag."

"I love the idea of just continuing to encourage them about what they did so that that will encourage, you know, other kids in college and everywhere else to know they did the right thing," he added.

Ultra Right Beer Company will be giving away free beer to those in attendance for what Weathers believes will turn into a "really good event" that "multiple fraternities" and Old Row, a Barstool Sports subsidiary, are involved with.

"We're doing free beer," he said. "We're making it really simple — show up, you got free beer. We're bringing half a tractor trailer load of beer for this thing just in anticipation of the kind of crowd it sounds like we're going to have."

CNN —

The United Methodist Church overturned its 40-year ban on gay clergy Wednesday, marking a historic shift in the church’s stance on homosexuality.

The church has long been divided into factions over LGBTQ inclusion and even weighed splitting into two separate churches over the issue, CNN previously reported.

In 1984, the church banned “self-avowed practicing homosexuals” from becoming members of the clergy, and later added performing or celebrating same-sex unions to “a list of chargeable offenses that could result in a church trial,” according to a timeline of the church’s history with the LGBTQ community.

The Methodist community spent the ensuing decades debating, fighting and praying over their stance on gay clergy and LGBTQ members. But Wednesday’s vote by the church’s top legislative body signaled a historic shift toward acceptance and inclusion.

In a 692-51 vote, church leaders passed several rules without debate, including overturning both its ban on gay clergy and the penalties for holding same-sex marriages, according to the United Methodist News service.

After the vote, Hope Morgan Ward, a retired bishop in the United Methodist Church, prayed the church would be used as “peacemakers and servants” and be “welcoming of all people into the embrace of God.”

According to the Methodist news service, members cheered, cried and hugged after the vote.

“We’ve been going on like this since the ’70s and, finally, in just a brief few minutes with no debate, it was gone. And now we can get on about the business of the church,” Marilyn Murphy, an observer from the church’s South Carolina conference, told the news service.

LGBTQ advocates within the church hailed the decision.

Matt Patrick, co-pastor at the University United Methodist Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, told CNN he became emotional after the church announced the decision.

I did tear up this morning at the announcement of the vote because it was just a huge relief to see justice had been done after so many years,” he said. “There’s just been a lot of pain in order to get us to this place.”

Though the prohibition on gay clergy has been removed from the church bylaws, Patrick said the work will continue to ensure the Methodist church is as an inclusive place for everyone.

“Where we go from here, God only knows,” he said.

More changes are expected as the legislative conference continues in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The war in Gaza and rebellion against the God of the Bible

Is it alright to bring God into the discussion about the war between Israel and Hamas? Are the Israelis not just colonialists, annexing the land and displacing the native population? A short review of the history of the region in question and its biblical context sketches an astoundingly simple answer to the question of the war in Gaza.

It is especially people who consider themselves to be fighting for a better, fairer world, who are filled with righteous fury towards aggressors – in this case, Israelis and Jews around the world – and allow their blind sympathy for victims to propel them along, in this case, the Palestinian people. “It is a matter of fairness, of human rights,” many say, appalled. This week in Sudan, Nigeria, and Somalia, thousands were raped, murdered, or displaced, but most people do not even register that as a sidenote. North Korea, China, Pakistan, Yemen, and many other countries who spit upon human rights as a matter of course, where people are slaughtered like animals daily, are given neither sympathy nor their share of righteous fury. There must be something about the conflict between Israel and Palestine that captures the attention of not just Islamic, but also non-Islamic nations. 2 Everyone is forced to take a side – and often, the side that is taken stands again Israel and the Jews. The fact is that the question of the God of the Bible is not just a religious footnote in this conflict, but is actually the main factor, even if its relevance and application are often haphazard, unthinking, and unconscious. The Bible is the most-read book in the whole world. It has heavily influenced many nations, traditions, and cultures. In the Bible, the Jews are called the chosen people of God. In and through them, God wants to both broach the topic of His relationship with humanity and bring it to fruition. Important to note is that it is not the self-image of the Jews that matters in this respect, but alone the fact that God chose them and connected His name to them forever. He gave this heavily disputed strip of land as an inheritance to their forefather Abraham and his descendants, Isaac and Jacob, about 2100 years before Christ (vis. Gen 12:6-7, 13:15, 26:2- 5, 28:13-15, 35:9-11).

Israel’s History Goes Way Back

After the people of Israel lived in the promised land for 500 years as a loose collection of tribes, they were ruled by King Saul. King Saul was the first king of Israel and the founder of Israel as a concrete nation-state. The Kingdom of Israel changed as it grew larger, was divided and later subjugated by a number of conquering nations, but it remained a nation until the year 135 A.D. That year, the Romans put down the Bar Kokhba revolt; Emperor Hadrian changed the name of this rebellious province from “Judea” to “Syria-Palestine” to erase the memory of the Jewish people from history. From the eighth century onwards for 1,300 years, the land was ruled by the Muslims – with a short interlude of 90 years during which the Crusaders held it. WWI brought the end of Islamic rule, and the Holy Land was brought under the mandate of Great Britain as a protectorate. To go into detail about the inglorious and conflict-seeding rule of Britain in the Orient would go beyond the scope of this article. The only concession to the Jewish people was the Balfour Declaration in 1917 which promised them a home in Palestine. However, mounting pressure from the Arabic nations caused the British administration to prevent the immigration of Jews into Palestine during WWII. The British sent many Jewish refugees back to Europe, where they found death in Nazi concentration camps. Incited and supported by the Arab nations, the ethnic Arabic inhabitants of Palestine emphatically resisted the immigration of Jews. A struggle for survival ensued, with terror and assassinations on both sides. The British offered neither help nor protection, instead turning to the international community (UN) to ask 3 for a solution. The international community decided to divide the land into two parts: A Jewish one, and an Arabic one. The Arabs would have East Jerusalem, the West Bank, and Gaza. The Jews accepted the division, the Arabs rejected it. When the Jews declared the Nation of Israel on their allotted territory in 1948, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, and Egypt immediately declared war on them and attacked the Jewish state as soon as the British left. The nascent nation fought desperately for survival and was able to win the war through God’s intervention. Many Arabs fled from Palestine into the surrounding countries during the war. The Arab nations promised them that they would drive the Jews into the ocean soon enough and that the refugees would be able to return to a liberated, Jew-free Palestine. Most of these refugees still live, three generations later, in the same refugee camps, because their Arabic brothers refuse to give them citizenship in their new homes.

God Is the One Who Acts

The idea that the State of Israel is only a product of the collective guilty conscience of Europeans is not just widely spread in the Islamic world. Israel has become a dangerous risk to world peace. The voices calling for Israel to yield to the stipulations and demands of the Arabic world and withdraw to the 1967 borders are getting louder and louder. For the Jews, this would mean handing over East Jerusalem – and with it, the Temple Mount and the Western Wall, the site of their ethnic and religious identity per se – to the Muslims. For 2000 years, the scattered Jewish people have prayed every year at their feast of Passover: “Next year in Jerusalem!” God scattered His people among every other people of the world to punish them for their disobedience and disregard of His commandments. But He also promised them, that one day He would gather them together out of all nations and bring them back to the land of their fathers, to fulfil His will concerning them and all nations of the world. You can read this in Ezekiel 20:40-44, 36:16-37, and 37:21-23, as well as Isaiah 11:12, 43:6, 49:22, and Jeremiah 31:10. God is the one who acts in the history of the Jews, even if they themselves do not believe it. The fight against the Jewish people and their claim to the land is, in the end, a fight against God and His plans

The Fight for the Inheritance of the Chosen People

The conflict between Israel and Palestine is not just political. That a two-state solution is no answer to the problem at hand is easy to conclude from the absolute lack of interest in it on the side of the Arabs. The Arabic states had nearly 20 years between 1948 and 1967 to raise up a Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital – and the UN backing them every step of the way. During this time, East Jerusalem and the West Bank belonged to the Kingdom of Jordan and Gaza to Egypt. But these states did not consider the option of declaring a Palestinian state and sending the refugees there for even a moment. On the contrary: In 1964, the Egyptian president and leading figure of Pan-Arabism Gamal Abdel Nasser founded the PLO (Palestine Liberation Organisation) with the express goal of freeing Palestine from the Jews. Other Arabic states involved themselves in this project. Yasser Arafat, the long-time leader of the PLO, and his successor Mahmud Abbas rejected every single Israeli offer of a two-state solution. In the end, they were not free to make any decisions on their own. The goals of the Arabic-Islamic nations that sponsored them were much more fundamental: The Jewish state was to cease to exist, to disappear entirely. To reach this goal, the suffering of the Palestinian people must be upheld in order to leverage it against the West and Israel itself. This objective was validated in 1969 in the course of the “Fourth Conference of the Academy of Islamic Research” at the Al-Azhar University in Cairo. In 1967, the government of Israel got wind of an assault planned by the Arabic states. In six days, the Israeli army was able to defeat and push back the superior forces of the Arabs with a pre-emptive strike. This was a huge shock to the entirety of the Islamic world: For the first time since the Crusaders, Temple Mount was not in Islamic hands. This experience deeply unsettled Islamic self-perception. The Muslims understand themselves as the chosen faith community that God assigned to rule the world in the name of the true religion. In the eyes of Islam, Christians are ultimately just idolaters since they worship Jesus in addition to Allah. Jews, however, are a real problem: They understand themselves as the people of God, and that undermines the Islamic self-perception as God’s true chosen people. Islam teaches that God discarded the once-chosen Jewish people and that because the Muslims succeeded them as God’s chosen people, all the spiritual and physical inheritances of the Jews now belong to the Muslims. All the Jewish prophets and important figures such as David and Solomon were declared Muslims posthumously and integrated into the Islamic concept. In Islam, Jerusalem is considered the City of Prophets. Whoever rules her is also the legitimate inheritor of her spiritual authority. By losing control of Jerusalem in 1967, this spiritual authority and the Islamic claim to world domination were badly shaken.

The Islamic Perspective

In 1969, at the aforementioned conference at Al-Azhar University, the most notable spiritual and political leaders of the Islamic world came 5 together to discuss why Allah would allow his chosen Islamic community to be defeated by the Jews whom he had discarded. They came to the conclusion that this could only have happened because the Islamic community had allowed itself to be corrupted by the ideology of the unbelieving West, adopting godless concepts such as human rights and democracy. Their solution was: Back to the true Islam of the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet! Back to world-domination under the rule of Islam! An explanation was offered for the return of the Jews into the Holy Land and City of Prophets: A passage was found in the Islamic traditions (the hadith) where the return of the Jews at the end of time was foretold as early as the eighth century. This would happen so that the Islamic community might administer God’s judgment over them. The conquering of the world by Islam would be prefaced by the total destruction of this people, rejected by God. After 1969, since the Islamic nations were not able to defeat Israel militarily, they began sending the other nations a very clear message through economic pressure and targeted terror: “Those who call themselves friends of the Jews are our enemies.” Coupled with the accusation that the West does not care about social justice or the suffering of the Arabs, they did not have to wait long for the desired reaction to manifest. No nation has ever been irrationally condemned as many times by the UN Security Council as Israel. In the year 2023, the UN Assembly passed no less than 14 resolutions against Israel alone, and seven resolutions total against all other centres of conflict worldwide. This is rather astounding since Israel is the only state in the entire Middle East that allows its minorities access to every level of political and social position. The same kind of irrational action can also be seen in the attitude of the UN towards the current war between Israel and Hamas. On the 7th of October 2023, militants of the Palestinian terror organisation Hamas attacked Israel.

They deliberately murdered civilians and took a great many hostages. Their openly declared goal was to liberate Jerusalem, destroy and banish the Jews, and to bring the rule of Islam to the entire world. One of their most important commanders, Al Zahar, even broadcasted this on YouTube. When Israel began to defend itself, they were immediately depicted in all manner of social media as a state of violent villains. The cold-blooded calculation of Hamas, that Israel’s retaliation would also claim many civilian victims, paid off. For the release of the hostages, Hamas demanded nothing less than the end of the war and Israel’s definitive withdrawal from Gaza. On top of that, hundreds of condemned Palestinian terrorists were to be released. This is also how the architect of the October massacre by Hamas, Yahya 6 Sinwar, achieved freedom in 2011: By being traded for the Israeli hostage Gilad Shalit. To acquiesce to these demands would be an unthinkable endangerment for Israel. In that case, Hamas – bolstered by their success would surely not cease fighting for their goal of the destruction of Israel. Completely ignoring Hamas’ self-proclaimed goals and showing an absolutely flabbergasting ignorance of the Islamic world-view, western states demanded that Israel end their offensive and strive for a two-state solution. As if Hamas were interested in anything even approaching peaceful coexistence with a Jewish state.

God’s Claim

Under the auspices of this war, the Jewish community around the world came under pressure. Antisemitism showed itself to be shockingly strong and widespread. How can it be that self-proclaimed fighters for human rights gather in the streets side-by-side with Muslims who have no qualms about implementing violence? Adherents of the LGBTQ+ - movement and feminists have an incredibly short half-life in a state ruled by Islam; Islamic law forbids such ideologies. What unites them in this fight is the question of absolute authority. Both Muslims and non-Muslims revolt against the God of the Bible, and this leads to the most improbable bedfellows. This God claims to be the creator of all life and demands accountability from His creations. Whoever wants to be their own boss and rejects God’s rule because of it will make Him and all who believe in Him an object of hate to themselves. God says that all who trust in their own wisdom and strength are condemned and cursed ( Jeremiah 17:5-6). But He promises those blessings and life who submit to His rule ( Jeremiah 17:7-8).

Adversaries of God

The spirit of adversity and contempt towards God’s reign in the Bible is personified in the person of Esau, also called Edom. For a meal of red lentils, he sold his firstborn birthright. The birthright that marked him as the carrier of God’s promises. With this, he expressed his contempt for the rule of God in his life. When his brother Jacob then appropriated the firstborn birthright for himself, Edom’s contempt turned into hate towards his brother and all his descendants. All the prophets of the Bible bear witness that Edom will do anything to destroy the descendants of Jacob in order to wipe out God’s claim to rule. The Jews are the expression of this claim. This rebellion against God’s claim to rule unites all nations that trust in their own strength and wisdom in their fight against Him. This phenomenon is summarized in Psalm 2: “Why do the nations con- 7 spire and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the Lord and against his anointed, saying, ’let us break their chains and throw off their shackles.”

Jesus Is King

Jesus says: “I am the way and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” ( John 14:6). This is an unbelievably unreasonable thing to expect the proud and independent spirit of humanity to accept. Even if not all Jews believe in the Messiah and Saviour Jesus, their story is still closely bound together with Him. He is the only way to salvation for every person. God brought His Jewish people back to their country in order to write the story of the Last Days. This has everything to do with the reign of peace that the Messiah will bring to all nations (vis. Isaiah 2:1-5, 25:6-9, and Revelation 21:1-8). But before this promised reign of peace begins, the war of the nations against God’s claim must come to pass. Jesus called Jerusalem the City of the Great King. He is that Great King, the one whose reign will manifest itself in Jerusalem. He will hold the Lords of the nations accountable (vis. Zachariah 12:13, 14:1-20, Matthew 10:22, 24:9-11, and John 15:8). The God of the Bible says of Himself that He resists the prideful and lives with those who have humble spirits. He loves all people – Jew and non-Jew. He wants to save them from their downfall. He wants to forgive them, reconcile them, and give them joy, peace, and true freedom – but He has terms. He tells us what they are in His word: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:28-30).

NYPD Raids Columbia Building

Tuesday, 30 April 2024 10:07 PM EDT

Dozens of helmeted police marched on to Columbia University's campus in the heart of New York City on Tuesday and began evicting a building that had been barricaded by pro-Palestinian student protesters.

AFP journalists could see police climbing up to the second story of Hamilton Hall from a laddered truck and disappear inside, as student newspaper the Columbia Spectator said arrests were being made.

Hamilton Hall had been barricaded at dawn by students who vowed they would fight any eviction, as they protested the soaring death toll from Israel's war with Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

The action came as university administrators around the United States struggle to contain pro-Palestinian demonstrations on dozens of campuses.

The demonstrations — the most sweeping and prolonged unrest to rock U.S. college campuses since the Vietnam War protests of the 1960s and '70s — have already led to several hundred arrests of students and other activists.

Many of them have vowed to maintain their actions despite suspensions and threats of expulsion.

"We will remain here, drawing from the lessons of our people (in Gaza) that stay put, and hold their ground even under the worst conditions," a protester wearing a Palestinian keffiyeh headscarf, who declined to give her name, told reporters outside the hall earlier in the day.

As she spoke, protesters were seen using ropes to hoist crates of supplies up to the building's second floor, apparently signaling the students were hunkering down.

President Joe Biden's White House had sharply criticized the seizure of Hamilton Hall, with a spokesman saying it was "absolutely the wrong approach."

"That is not an example of peaceful protest," the spokesman added.

The protests have posed a challenge to university administrators trying to balance free speech rights with complaints that the rallies have veered into antisemitism and hate.

The unrest has swept through U.S. higher education institutions like wildfire, with many student protesters erecting tent encampments on campuses from coast to coast.

At Columbia, demonstrators have vowed to remain until their demands are met, including that the school divest all financial holdings linked to Israel.

The university has rejected the demand, with President Minouche Shafik saying earlier that talks with students had collapsed.

Columbia has warned that students occupying the building face expulsion.

The university outlined in a press update Tuesday that those in the encampments and Hamilton Hall "number in the dozens," while nearly 37,000 attend Columbia.

- A nationwide movement -

In one of the newest clashes, at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, police moved in Tuesday to clear one encampment, detaining some protesters in a tense showdown.

Meanwhile at northern California's Cal Poly Humboldt, a weeklong occupation was brought to a dramatic end early Tuesday when police moved in to arrest nearly three dozen protesters who had seized buildings and forced the closure of the campus.

In Oregon, Portland State University's campus was closed Tuesday "due to an ongoing incident" in the library, college authorities said, after local media reported around 50 protesters had broken into the building a day earlier.

And Brown University reached an agreement in which student protesters will remove their encampment in exchange for the institution holding a vote on divesting from Israel — a major concession from an elite American university during the protests.

Footage of police in riot gear summoned at various colleges has been viewed around the world.

U.N. human rights chief Volker Turk voiced concern at the heavy-handed steps taken to disperse the campus protests, saying "freedom of expression and the right to peaceful assembly are fundamental to society."

He added, "Incitement to violence or hatred on grounds of identity or viewpoints — whether real or assumedmust be strongly repudiated."

Shafik said many Jewish students had fled Columbia's campus in fear. "Antisemitic language and actions are unacceptable," she said.

Protest organizers deny accusations of antisemitism, arguing their actions are aimed at Israel's government.

The Columbia student group insisted their protest was peaceful and warned authorities against a crackdown similar to those that marred the anti-Vietnam War movement.

The Gaza war started when Hamas militants staged an unprecedented attack on Israel on Oct. 7 that left around 1,170 people dead, mostly civilians, according to an AFP tally of Israeli official figures.

During their attack, militants also seized hostages, 129 of whom Israel estimates remain in Gaza, including 34 whom the military says are dead.

Israel's retaliatory offensive has killed at least 34,535 people in Gaza, mostly women and children, according to the Hamas-run territory's health ministry.

German ambassador attacked by Palestinian mob during Ramallah visit

Owcza downplayed the incident in a post on X, stating, “Peaceful protest [and] dialogue always has its place.

By TOVAH LAZAROFF, REUTERS

APRIL 30, 2024 14:40 Updated: APRIL 30, 2024 23:30

German Representative to the Palestinian Authority Oliver Owcza was heckled and his vehicle was attacked by students during his visit to Birzeit University near Ramallah in the West Bank on Tuesday.

Social media clips showed him walking quickly to his car as protesters followed him.

Shots also showed how a mob surrounded the vehicle, threw objects at it, kicked it and broke off a side mirror to show their anger at Germany’s support for Israel in the war against Hamas.

Owcza was one of a group of envoys who were attacked at the meeting of European Union heads of missions to the PA at the National Museum.

Before the incident, Palestinian students called on Facebook calling for a protest against the presence of the German representative over his country’s support for Israel in the war.

Palestinian students disrupted the EU meeting and attacked a number of envoys’ vehicles with stones, smashing the back window of one, witnesses said.

One diplomat present told Reuters they were in a meeting when a crowd appeared outside telling them to leave and, after attempts at dialog were unsuccessful, the diplomats left. The experience was unpleasant, but there was no serious threat to any of them, he said.

Amr Kayed, a student from Birzeit University, said they forced the EU diplomats to leave to send a message that “anyone complicit in genocide and the offensive on Gaza” was not welcome.

Owcza downplayed the incident in a post on X, stating, “Peaceful protest [and] dialogue always has its place. We regret that today’s meeting of EU Heads of Missions at the National Museum in Birzeit was unduly interrupted by protesters.”

Biden stokes outrage for making sign of the cross at pro-abortion rally: 'Truly sacrilegious'

By Jon Brown, Christian Post Reporter Wednesday, April 24, 2024

President Joe Biden drew criticism and accusations of sacrilege for making the sign of the cross during a pro-abortion speech at his campaign rally in Florida on Tuesday.

Biden, the second Catholic president in United States history, made the gesture common among Roman Catholics while listening to a speech from Florida Democratic Party Chair Nikki Fried at his campaign event in Tampa.

This. Is. VILE!

President Biden makes the Sign of the Cross at an abortion rally in Florida!

You cannot be Catholic and support abortion!

You cannot invoke GOD and promote Death! pic.twitter.com/aG4P542EM0 

— CatholicVote (@CatholicVote) April 23, 2024

During the rally that focused heavily on abortion, Biden blamed Trump for the 2022 U.S. Supreme Court ruling that overturned Roe v. Wade and accused him of creating "a healthcare crisis for women all over this country."

During her remarks, Fried hit at Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, suggesting he only decided to support the state's six-week abortion ban because he was running for president. Florida's six-week abortion ban is slated to go into effect on May 1.

"And then we come back here to the state of Florida, where Ron DeSantis felt like he needed to run for president, and so 15 weeks wasn't good enough — we had to go to six weeks," Fried said as Biden made the sign of the cross. It's unclear what specifically in her remarks prompted him to do so.

A clip of the moment went viral on X, formerly known as Twitter, after being tweeted out by CatholicVote.org, a nonprofit pro-life political advocacy group based in Indiana.

"This. Is. VILE! President Biden makes the Sign of the Cross at an abortion rally in Florida! You cannot be Catholic and support abortion! You cannot invoke GOD and promote Death!" the group wrote.

The organization also tweeted Galatians 6:7: "Make no mistake: God is not mocked."

CatholicVote.org President Brian Burch criticized Biden's action as "despicable" and accused the president of trying to "co-opt a sacred practice in support of his new abortion religion."

"Biden's decision to make the Sign of the Cross in support of abortion extremism is a despicable charade that attempts to co-opt a sacred practice in support of his new abortion religion," Burch said in a statement. "His gesture openly mocks the Christian belief in the sanctity of life."

"There is no divine support for destroying the lives of innocent children, and he should know better. Biden's gesture suggests he is either terribly naive, or senile, or callously indifferent to the foundational beliefs of millions of Christians in America," Burch added.

Bishop Joseph Strickland, who was recently removed as bishop of Tyler, Texas, amid tensions with the Vatican, echoed Burch.

"Absolutely vile, pray for the soul of our president, he is a feeble old man, he needs to prepare to meet his maker," Strickland tweeted.

Absolutely vile, pray for the soul of our president, he is a feeble old man, he needs to prepare to meet his maker… https://t.co/hOqvJZ3Oa8 

— Bishop J. Strickland (@BishStrickland) April 24, 2024

Other users on X also flooded the footage from CatholicVote.org with negative responses, including many who noted they found it offensive despite not being Catholics.

"Is abortion now a left-wing sacrament?" asked the national grassroots pro-life organization Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America, which described Biden's campaign stops as an "abortion fearmongering tour."

"The fact that Biden gets away with this is a failure of many members of the church hierarchy," pro-life Catholic activist organization American Life League wrote.

"Demonic: Joe Biden makes the sign of the cross at a pro-abortion rally," wrote William Wolfe, who serves as executive director of the Center for Baptist Leadership. "When I say evil spiritual forces are at play in his administration, I mean it."

"This is truly sacrilegious," wrote Marc Thiessen, a Catholic former White House speechwriter and columnist for The Washington Post. "Our 'Catholic' president making the sign of the cross at an abortion rally."

"How disgusting," wrote conservative political commentator Mercedes Schlapp. "Biden is an advocate for this culture of death that contradicts the Catholic pro life teachings."

40 Days for Life, a pro-life campaign that works to end abortion through prayer and fast, community outreach and peaceful vigils at abortion clinics, wrote that Biden's sign of the cross at an abortion rally is a "stark reminder of the disconnect between his actions and Catholic teachings on the sanctity of life."

The backlash is the latest example of some Catholics questioning the sincerity of Biden's professed faith in light of his support for practices that openly defy the teachings of the Catholic Church.

Several weeks ago, Archbishop of Washington Wilton Cardinal Gregory criticized Biden as a "cafeteria Catholic" who "picks and chooses" which elements of Catholicism he wants to follow.

"I would say that he's very sincere about his faith. But like a number of Catholics, he picks and chooses dimensions of the faith to highlight while ignoring or even contradicting other parts," Gregory said during a March 31 appearance on CBS's "Face the Nation."

"There is a phrase that we have used in the past, a 'cafeteria Catholic,' you choose that which is attractive and dismiss that which is challenging," he added.

Biden also prompted outrage from many Christians earlier this month for declaring Easter Sunday as "Transgender Day of Visibility."

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre attempted to downplay the backlash, claiming the Transgender Day of Visibility commemoration on Easter Sunday was coincidental because the observance falls on March 31 every year. She also accused Republicans who got upset about it of exhibiting cruelty and trafficking misinformation.

REPORT: Canadian Town To Require QR Code To Leave?

By Danielle | Apr 27, 2024

Circulating reports indicate a remote Canadian town will require a QR code to enter or leave.

Unsurprisingly, the reports have sparked severe criticism.

The controversy stems from Îles-de-la-Madeleine, an archipelago in the Gulf of St. Lawrence.

The municipality, consisting of 12 islands, is home to approximately 12,000 residents.

A proposed $30 tourist fee caused an uproar.

“The municipal council of Îles-de-la-Madeleine wishes to adopt a new measure for its citizens, namely that of mandatory identification to leave their municipality,” TVA Nouvelles wrote (translated).

Canada now has a town that forces you to scan a QR code to enter and leave, and then charges you a $30 tax,” journalist Keean Bexte commented.

“Îles-de-la-Madeleine in the Gulf of St. Lawrence has become the first municipality in Canada to officially require a QR code to enter and leave,” The Counter Signal noted.

“Madeleine Island getting QR codes in order to leave and if you don’t get your QR code, you will be fined,” one woman claimed in a viral video.

That’s the very first QR code prison here in Canada. And it is going to sweep the nation faster than you can think if people don’t stand up and take a stand against these QR codes,” she continued.

“It’s not happening in your town yet but it most certainly will be,” she added.

WATCH:

Officials reportedly said the QR code requirement to leave the archipelago Îles-de-la-Madeleine will only apply to tourists.

Residents must show their driver’s license to enter or leave, The Counter Signal noted.

“QR Codes coming to a remote Canadian island in the heart of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, Île de la Madeleine! This is real, not a conspiracy theory. Time to stand united, rally behind our fellow Canadians. Let’s strategize how to halt this trend and send a clear message: Canadians will not embrace QR codes or a social credit system,” Purdy Talks wrote, sharing what appears to be footage from a municipal council meeting.

“This video explains that visitors to the island won’t require a code to enter; however, tourists must show a QR code for departure. Residents, on the other hand, only need to present their driver’s license with an island address,” the post continued.

“The exit check is implemented to confirm the absence of any municipal infractions, which officials claim is to support the island’s infrastructure. There are discussions among officials asserting that this process is akin to presenting identification for air or sea travel. However, a woman argues that those are services we opt to use, distinct from leaving our homes. They engage in a back-and-forth; the official labels her statement as an opinion, but she counters it’s a fact. The official dismisses her and essentially shuts her down, treating her as if she were a child,” the post added.

YouTube backup:

The Counter Signal reports:

1st city in Canada to require a QR code and a tourist tax of $30 to leave Îles-de-la-Madeleine, an island in Quebec. But hey, it’s all for your wealth & safety! And agenda 2030 & 15 min cities are conspiracy theories,podcaster and journalist Efrat Fenigson commented.

Per Radio-Canada:

The outlet offered this definition of the fee:

Between May 1 and October 14, visitors to the Magdalen Islands will have to pay a fee of $30 plus taxes, payable via a secure payment platform. This fee will be used to finance the management of residual materials, the maintenance of recreational tourism infrastructure and the establishment and operation of a regional park on public lands.

US retailers confirm another 169 store closures in just one week - among them Urban Outfitters, Walmart and a premium grocery chain

In the week ending April 26, retailers announced they would close 169 stores

They included Express, Outfox Hospitality, Urban Outfitters and Walmart

READ MORE: Retailers shut 5,500 stores last year across a range of sectors

By Neirin Gray Desai Consumer Reporter For Dailymail.Com

Published: 07:13 EDT, 1 May 2024 | Updated: 09:21 EDT, 1 May 2024

US retailers confirmed another 169 closures last week - bringing the total so far this year up to almost 2,600.

Stores that announced the shuttering of locations included Express, Outfox Hospitality, Shop 'n Save, Urban Outfitters and Walmart.

Physical stores in shopping malls, strip malls, downtown centers and on main street in towns have been under threat from online retail and changing tastes.

'Year to date, in 2024, major US retailers have announced 7.4 percent fewer openings and 12.3 percent more closures compared to the same time last year,' read a report by Coresight Research on closures announced over the week ending April 26. The full list is below.

The total of 2,587 closures in the first 17 weeks of the year is almost 300 more than at the same time last year, but a thousand less than the number of openings.

Walmart plans to close one Neighborhood Market store in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on May 17.

Walmart Neighborhood Markets are smaller versions of its traditional Walmart stores but have been largely unsuccessful and the retailer closed multiple last year.

'Usually big-box retailers when they try to go small with city stores, it doesn't usually work,' Alexander Milovic, professor of marketing at Marquette University, told local station TMJ4. 'A grocery store like that runs on smaller profit margins.'

Discount grocery retailer Shop 'n Save also announced it would close one store in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on May 13, according to the report.

Last week, café and deli market chains Foxtrot and Dom's Kitchen & Market - both operated by Outfox Hospitality - abruptly closed all of their stores in multiple states.

The closures affected 33 Foxtrots and two Dom's Grocery Stores in Chicago, Austin and the Washington DC area.

'We explored many avenues to continue the business but found no viable option despite good faith and exhaustive efforts,' the company said in a notice on its website.

Founded in 2014, Foxtrot Market started as an upmarket neighborhood grocery store. The stores feature a coffee shop and seating for guests, which turned into a wine bar at night. The retailer also tried to juggle retail sales.

Last week, fashion retailer Express filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and said it intended to close more than 100 stores.

The retailer, whose portfolio of brands also includes Bonobos and UpWest, listed assets and liabilities in the range of $1 billion to $10 billion, according to a filing with the bankruptcy court in Delaware.

As part of the bankruptcy process, the company said it would close approximately 95 Express retail stores and all of its 12 UpWest stores.

Launched in 1980, Express was once a destination for well-priced office attire but has been battling with soft consumer demand due to slowing spending and increased price sensitivity.

UpWest, the company's lifestyle spinoff brand, was launched in 2019 and sold casual clothes and sleepwear for men and women.

Clothing retailer Urban Outfitters was reported by Coresight to have scheduled the closure of an additional 7 stores.

Local outlet Brooklyn Paper reported this month that Urban Outfitters closed its store in the trendy area of Williamsburg in Brooklyn.

Here are the top American cities Joe Biden is sending hundreds of thousands of paroled migrants - so is YOUR home town on the list?

The policy allows in limited numbers of vetted migrants from four nations

DHS revealed that it sent over 200,000 in through the program

Around 80 percent of the migrants were sent to four cities in the state of Florida

By Stephen M. Lepore For Dailymail.Com

Published: 01:47 EDT, 1 May 2024 | Updated: 09:25 EDT, 1 May 2024

The Department of Homeland Security revealed that it sent over 200,000 migrants on a controversial parole program to 45 cities across the United States between January and August 2023.

The policy, which was enacted in October 2022, allowed migrants who had not entered the country illegally to fly directly into America.

Migrants were also required to have a sponsor in the US and pass various vetting tests.

It was initially announced for Venezuelans, before adding Haitians, Nicaraguans and Cubans amid one of the worst migrant crises in American history under President Joe Biden and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

Around 80 percent of the migrants were sent to four cities in the state of Florida: Miami - which got 91,821, more than any other city - Fort Lauderdale, Orlando and Tampa Bay were among the top 15 destinations, according to the DHS.  etc

Fox News Privacy Policy

Under fire Secretary Mayorkas says the program led to a reduction in people from those nations illegally crossing the border.

'It is a key element of our efforts to address the unprecedented level of migration throughout our hemisphere, and other countries around the world see it as a model to tackle the challenge of increased irregular migration that they too are experiencing,' Mayorkas said.

New York City, Houston, Los Angeles and San Francisco were also in the top 10 of destinations.

Another 1.6million migrants are waiting to get into the country via this same program, DHS claims.

Multiple states, including Florida, have attempted to sue to stop the program but have thus far been unsuccessful.

'Biden's parole program is unlawful, and constitutes an abuse of constitutional authority. Florida is currently suing Biden to shut it down, and we believe that we will prevail,' said Governor Ron DeSantis' press secretary, Jeremy Redfern.

Since Biden took office, the U.S. has seen record-high numbers of illegal border crossings.

Customs and Border Protection has apprehended more than 7.6 million migrants illegally crossing the southern border – the majority of which are traveling from Central and South American countries in efforts to claim asylum in the U.S.

Under fire Secretary Mayorkas says the problem led to reductions in people from those nations illegally crossing the border

The crisis at the border has been a scandal for the Biden administration throughout his presidency, with former President and 2024 opponent Donald Trump promising to fix the problem.

Trump is ready to reshape American policy and detailed in interviews with TIME Magazine what some of these sweeping overhauls would include.

In a wide-ranging interview at Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida on April 12, the former president confirmed he would use detention camps to house illegal immigrants during deportation efforts.

He also didn't rule out deploying the military to round up the millions of undocumented immigrants living in the country. As of January 2022, the illegal immigrant population in the U.S. was estimated to stand at 11.35 million.

Trump has repeatedly said he would take aggressive actions to address the border issue on Day One of a second term after President Joe Biden reversed almost all of his policies and plunged the country into an all-out illegal immigration crisis.

His proposals would include tapping local law enforcement, National Guard and, if necessary, members of the U.S. Military to round up illegal immigrants for deportation.

TIME National Politics Reporter Eric Cortellessa asked Trump if he would override the Posse Comitatus Act, which states the U.S. military cannot be deployed against civilians.

'Well, these aren't civilians,' the former president replied. 'These are people that aren't legally in our country. This is an invasion of our country. An invasion like probably no country has ever seen before.'

'They're coming in by the millions. I believe we have 15 million now. And I think you'll have 20 million by the time this ends,' Trump predicted. 'And that's bigger than almost every state.'

He also said it isn't likely he would have to house these immigrants in detention camps because he plans to deport them swiftly – but he didn't rule out building more holding centers if needed during the operation.

'No, I would not rule out anything,' Trump said. 'But there wouldn't be that much of a need for them [detention camps], because of the fact that we're going to be moving them out. We're going to bring them back from where they came.'

Top 10 cities where migrants were flown via DHS program

1. Miami - 91,821

2. Fort Lauderdale - 60,461

3. New York - 14,827

4. Houston - 7,923

5. Orlando - 6,043

Poland Officially Requests U.S. NUCLEAR WEAPONS

Hal Turner World April 30, 2024 Hits: 11304

Poland has handed an official request to Washington to have U.S. nuclear weapons hosted in Poland.

No word yet on any need or desire in the US to put such weapons there.

Russia earlier cautioned Poland that nuclear weapons in their country would **not** make Poland any safer. In fact, they said, it would merely make Poland a target for Russian nuclear weapons.

Hal Turner Snap Analysis

Nuclear weapons “hosted” in Poland; Sounds like an exchange student or something innocent , like its a cultural program.

My bet . . . and this is pure conjecture on my part -- Poland didn't actually "request" anything.

They were just told that the US is going to deploy nukes on their territory.

The nukes will be controlled by US of course, not Poland; Poland would have no interest in this affair whatsoever. . . except when they get blown up by Russia for having them so close to Russia.

INSANE New Tax Proposal – Stealing from Citizens Legally

April 30, 2024

Guest Post by Martin Armstrong

Success is a punishable offense in Biden’s America. Joe Biden and his administration would like to implement a 44.6% tax on capital gains, the highest tax on capital gains in the nation’s history. Washington says this tax is necessary to address the looming national debt, but they are simultaneously implementing measures to ensure that the nation falls deeper into debt. Perpetually issuing new debt to pay for the old is equivalent to a Ponzi scheme that WILL FAIL.

Donald Trump’s implemented tax deductions are set to expire in 2025, which is precisely when these measures could go into effect. The proposals essentially rob those who have achieved success to pay those who leech off of the government.

TAXES TEXT

Read the full proposal here.

The proposal is over 250 pages in length but looks to target all investments. The MSM will report that they are only going after the wealthiest Americans but the truth of the matter is that they will seek to squeeze everything they can out of every American, unless they fully rely on government assistance and are therefore owned by Washington.

“A new 25- percent minimum income tax would be imposed on extremely wealthy taxpayers. For high-income taxpayers, gaps in the law that allow some pass-through business owners to avoid Medicare taxes would be eliminated, and Medicare tax rates would be increased. Additional loopholes, including the carried interest preference and the like-kind exchange real estate preference, would be eliminated for those with the highest incomes. Together these reforms would sharply curtail tax preferences that allow the wealthy to pay lower tax rates on their investment income and exacerbate income and wealth disparities, including by gender, geography, race, and ethnicity.”

We are equal in rights, not talent. This proposal clearly states that successful individuals must be punished financially. Will the government curtail its own spending or address the utter deterioration of fiscal policy that has hurt all Americans? No. There are no mirrors in Washington.

KarlMarxTaxesTaxation

C corporations, under this proposal, would be subjected to a 28% tax rate – a 7% increase. The corporate alternative minimum tax (CAMT) would rise to 21% compared to the current 15%. How on Earth does this support American business? Does he truly believe this will aid in job growth, as we have primarily only seen the public sector grow?

Think crypto is safe? Think again because this proposal wants to permit the government to determine which assets are considered actively traded.

The proposal would add a third category of assets that may be marked-to-market at the election of a dealer or trader in those assets. Assets in the third category would be actively traded digital assets and derivatives on, or hedges of, those digital assets, under rules similar to those that apply 230 General Explanations of the Administration’s Fiscal Year 2025 Revenue Proposals to actively traded commodities. The Secretary would have authority to determine which digital assets are treated as actively traded. The determination of whether a digital asset is actively traded would take into account relevant facts and circumstances, which may include whether the asset is regularly bought and sold for U.S. dollars or other fiat currencies, the volume of trading of the asset on exchanges that have reliable valuations, and the availability of reliable price quotations.”

Socialism v Capitalism

Forget offshore digital investments because Washington wants a cut of that too:

Tax compliance and enforcement with respect to digital assets is a rapidly growing problem. Since the industry is entirely digital, taxpayers can transact with offshore digital asset exchanges and wallet providers without leaving the United States. The global nature of the digital asset market offers opportunities for U.S. taxpayers to conceal assets and taxable income by using offshore digital asset exchanges and wallet providers. U.S. taxpayers also attempt to avoid U.S. tax reporting by creating entities through which they can act. Requiring individuals specifically 228 General Explanations of the Administration’s Fiscal Year 2025 Revenue Proposals to report their offshore holdings of accounts with digital assets, subject to significant penalties if they fail to do so, is critical to combat the potential for digital assets to be used for tax avoidance.”

This proposal is LOADED with extreme restrictions and penalties for investors, both domestic and foreign.

They want to reform how companies pay dividends. They want to reform international taxation and reporting. The statute of limitation for financial penalties would be expanded, including the payouts the government lavishly handed out during COVID.

The proposal would increase the top marginal tax rate to 39.6% for married individuals filing a joint return and surviving spouses.

So, if one sells their small business, they will need to give the government about half of what they worked their entire lives to achieve. If an American’s house rose in value and they attempt to sell the estate—too bad, Uncle Sam needs half. This is a MIDDLE-CLASS TAX. The ultra-wealthy already have ways to bypass these measures. The ultra-wealthy may begin leaving America in general if they continue to demonize capitalism.

The people did not create the deficit we face today. The government continually spends with no plans to curtail spending. They have created a massive Ponzi scheme whereby they issue new debt every year to roll over the debt from the previous year. Eventually, there will be no buyers, and that is precisely how nations fail.

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.

While The US Military Focuses On Recruiting Homosexuals, Transgenders & Indoctrinating The Masses Into 'Woke,' The 'War To End All Wars' Will Leave Most Americans Dead

- Most Americans Today Have No Idea What Horrors Await Them

By Rob Pue of Wisconsin Christian News and All News Pipeline April 30, 2024

It seems like a lot of people just can’t hardly wait for war. From mainstream news media to even the best of alternative news sources, commentators and pundits, everyone seems to be salivating at the idea of World War Three.

I find it interesting to note that during World War 1, we didn’t call it “World War 1,” because we didn’t recognize it as the first of many. It was first called the “European War.” Then American newspapers called it “World War.” And the British called it the “Great War.” Soldiers fighting and families left at home had no idea they were fighting “World War 1.” Then, it was FDR who first used the term “World War 2” in 1941. But soldiers fighting and those at home didn’t realize they were fighting “World War 2” until Roosevelt named it that. But today, people seem so eager for World War 3. Even regular, everyday citizens seemed giddy at the idea of World War 3. It’s on everyone’s minds and it seems virtually inevitable.

As we look at current world events, it does appear that a war to engulf the globe has already been set in motion. Like wars we’ve seen in the past, alliances are being formed. The BRICS nations, consisting of Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa, Ethiopia, Iran and the United Arab Emirates have been in allegiance since 2009. Also at that table, you could add North Korea, Iraq, Turkey, Syria and Afghanistan.

Western countries, which were formerly allies, are significantly less organized and unfortunately, they’re all facing great internal turmoil, economic depression, massive immigration problems with people from enemy countries being welcomed in and catered to — for some reason — by their own governments. There’s no doubt that what one might call the “Axis of Evil” nations today are much better prepared and propped up by self-proclaimed Globalist New World Order “elites” than are countries like the United States, Britain, France, and even Germany.

Western nations are literally being invaded by citizens from the “Axis of Evil” — and the western nations are welcoming the invasions, supporting the invaders and weakening all their defenses — from military to public infrastructure, seemingly on purpose. This isn’t a “conspiracy theory.” It’s a conspiracy FACT.

Here in the US, the city of Minneapolis now plays the Islamic “call to prayer” over city loud speakers five times a day. The same happens in Michigan. Muslims who support the call of “Death to America” now serve in local, state and national governmental positions of power. Chinese nationals own much of the land in our nation and hold most of our debt. We rely on China for most everything we buy and use, including pharmaceutical drugs and food supplies.

(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.)

On our college campuses, students have been brainwashed to prefer socialism over capitalism and are rallying against Israel and their own United States. And while the “Axis of Evil” nations are training their military for war, here in the US, our military focuses on recruiting homosexuals and “transgenders” and invests tax dollars on transgender “transitioning” drugs and surgeries, using the proper pronouns, re- educating those who don’t agree with these agendas and training recruits to submit to an increasingly “woke” mindset.

For years, we’ve heard about Chinese military training in Mexico and Central America. In just the past couple of years, we’ve learned the Chinese military is also training in Canada, just a stone’s throw away from our US borders. We’ve seen video footage of Chinese container ships converted to ballistic missile launchers and loaded with ammunition, just off our western seacoast. Not to mention the millions of military-age single men, all from hostile nations, crossing our borderssome even stating openly that they’re here on a military mission.

We’ve also seen the self-proclaimed “elites” — the New World Order Globalistsspending enormous amounts to construct underground bunkers for themselves, here in the US and around the world. They’re stockpiling food and supplies for themselves, and they’ve been doing that for at least the last year or so. Obviously, they believe something big is on the horizon and they’re preparing.

Meanwhile, when the average American patriot suggests that we should all be “prepping” for coming disaster, we’re labeled, once again, as “conspiracy theorists,” “right-wing wackos,” and worse, by the mainstream media, on social media and by the ignorant general public.

The last presidential election here in this country deepened the tremendous amount of division among our citizenry. Any thinking person can easily examine and analyze what took place and come to the obvious conclusion that the election was blatantly stolen, regardless of what George Soros’-funded legislators, district attorneys and attorneys general will pronounce publicly. And so, there are many ignorant souls out there today who really believe the last election was completely legitimate — despite overwhelming evidence that we’re now a banana republic ruled by tyrants bent on the destruction of our nation.

That being said, there’s no doubt that this year’s election will be the most significant ever in American history. And along with that, will come more division, more hatred, more rioting, burning and devastation from the Left. But this time, American Patriots will likely rise up as well, rather than continuing to bow to the one-sided “rule of law.” Patriots aren’t going to let what happened last time happen again. They won’t stand for it. They won’t allow it.

So this year — leading up to November, but especially afterwards — is going to be one of chaos and war within our borders, among our own people. When the foreign enemies who’ve now been settled in and well-funded and supplied by the Regime in power get involved, it’s not going to be good. America is at its weakest point in history right now. It’s only going to grow weaker once the fighting begins within our borders.

When that happens, we’ll be ripe for the picking of those foreign enemies in and outside our borders, who are, even right now as I speak, training for a specific operation...World War 3.

I’d urge you to not be so quick to wish World War 3 upon us, because it’s not going to be anything like you can imagine now. If you’re thinking of a “Red Dawn” scenario, where a few bands of patriotic vigilantes can camp out in the woods and win our freedom back with a few shotguns, you’re just plain clueless.

When it happens, Patriots are going to be up against the most sophisticated weaponry in the world. I’m not just talking about night vision goggles here. I’m talking drone technology, the likes of which you and I have no idea. I’m talking about infrared heat cameras that can locate and pinpoint human beings hiding anywhere, and weapons that can eliminate them, fired by enemy combatants on the other side of the world.

Imagine losing your electricityrolling blackouts are already going on in parts of our country and will only grow worse as the regime continues to press it’s “net zero” agenda under the false narrative of “climate change.” No power. No water. No food in the stores. No communications. No phones. No internet. Cars will not operate — electric or otherwise. Local police and sheriff departments will be no match for hordes of foreign enemies marching on our land with operational, tactical vehicles. Even our military will be no match for these enemies.

And the enemies are already here, embedded in cities and towns, large and small, all across the United States. Thousands more are being welcomed in daily, even as they’re encouraged to “vote for Biden” when they get here, so the border can remain open.

During World War 2, our nation came together, united as one. Our people at home sacrificed, rationed things, bought war bonds, scrimped and saved everything to support our faithful soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines. Today, our nation is so divided — and deliberately divided — there will be no national unity. Amid the World War, we’ll also be fighting one another in a new “Civil War.” And a house divided against itself cannot stand.

I’m sorry to say, friends, we’ve already lost this battle. By being so passive, by allowing things like the stolen election of four years ago to stand; by allowing the rioting and devastation of groups like Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA to happen with no pushback — our police officers ordered to “stand down” and “let them burn it all down;” even by standing by and doing nothing as the statues and monuments of our American history and heritage were removed from public, and by allowing political dissidents of the Regime to be persecuted and jailed while most of us did nothing, we’ve invited the coming tragedy upon ourselves. It’s our own fault.

We should be, right now, weeping and mourning and repenting in sackcloth and ashes, begging God’s forgiveness for our personal sins and our national sins. Such a thing would begin in the churches across this land, but alas, the churches have also been overtaken by the socialism and communism of the Social Justice movement. Pastors, who have so much power available to them — if only they had an ounce of courage to use it — have refused to stand against the evil and therefore, their followers have refused to stand for anything. Most Americans today have no idea what the Word of God says. No idea Who Jesus Christ is, and certainly no idea the horrors that await them when their comfort, luxury and ease are suddenly removed and they’re faced with starvation, famine and the loss of every single thing they’ve put their trust and security in, in this world.

“If My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” There’s no political solution to all this. Don’t count on Donald Trump to save you — or our country. There’s one Savior, and that is the Lord, Jesus Christ. Judgment begins first in the house of the Lord, and I dare say it will be the Christians who are eliminated first as our enemies overtake us — from within and from without. Because most today are “Christians” in name only. Their “fire insurance faith” will not spare them from what’s about to happen. Instead, after horrific and violent deaths, most will stand before the Lord only to hear the words, “Depart from Me, you workers of iniquity. I never knew you.”

Could it be that I’m dead wrong on all these things? Well, I can tell you I’m 100% right on much of what I’ve stated here. I’ve told you about Global conspiracy FACTS, not theories. Of course, there’s much we don’t know yet...and won’t know until it plays out. But is there a chance God might spare this nation and heal our land? Yes, but it would require God’s professing people to take 2 Chronicles 7:14 seriously and put out an urgent, clarion call all across this country. It would take an enormous, concerted effort on the part of pastors and churches and the people in the pews, humbling themselves before Almighty God, while there’s still time. Sadly, I won’t hold my breath on that... Americans are too consumed with comfort and ease. Too self-absorbed to take the Word of God seriously. They’re busy planning their next vacation, busy with their sports and entertainment. They have no time for God. Certainly, no intention to humble themselves, pray, seek God’s face and turn from their wicked and selfish ways.

The soldiers in World War 1 didn’t know they were fighting “World War 1” when it was happening. Those in World War 2 didn’t know it was World War 2 when it began. There will be no doubt when World War 3 goes hot. It truly will be the “War to end all wars.” Friends, those of you who will, be in prayer for this nation. Be in prayer for those you love. I believe God will protect and provide for those who are truly His, but none of us will escape persecution. I urge you to draw close to God today, and bring as many souls with you as you can. Our time is growing short, and we have but one Savior.

At least 5 people, including infant, dead after night of tornadoes, storms in the Midwest

Nocturnal tornadoes tore through Oklahoma, where the governor signed an executive order Sunday declaring a disaster emergency. There were reports of injuries and at least five deaths.

April 27, 2024, 5:05 PM UTC / Updated April 29, 2024, 12:34 AM UTC

By Minyvonne Burke, Kathryn Prociv, Christine Rapp, Dennis Romero, Yuliya Talmazan and Rebecca Cohen

Dawn broke over scenes of devastation in several counties across Oklahoma on Sunday, with reports of severe structural damage, closed highways, blackouts, injuries and at least five deaths. There have been 35 reports of tornadoes overnight so far.

Twenty-seven million people remained at risk of severe weather into Sunday, including wind gusts, hail, flood risk and potentially more tornadoes.

Saturday's severe weather came less than 36 hours after more than 100 tornadoes leveled homes and buildings in six states Friday, with Nebraska and Iowa being hit hardest, officials said.

The National Weather Service office in Norman, Oklahoma, confirmed late Saturday that multiple tornadoes were in its area, including one near Davenport and more than one in the area of Sulphur, a small town of about 5,000 people 80 miles south of Oklahoma City, which appeared to have taken the biggest hit.

On Sunday, the weather service's Norman office said that, based on preliminary damage survey results, tornadoes with ratings of at least EF3 tore through Sulphur and Marietta in Oklahoma. The service said more investigation would be necessary to determine whether the rating will go higher.

The Murray County Emergency Management reported “significant damage” in Sulphur. In Love County, patients had to shelter during storms that damaged Marietta Hospital, though no injuries were reported, the county emergency management office said.

Also in Marietta, four semitrucks overturned, killing one person, after a tornado ripped through Interstate 35 on Saturday night, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol said.

Oklahoma’s Office of Emergency Management confirmed three deaths, one near Marietta on I-35 and two others in Holdenville. Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt arrived Sunday afternoon in Sulphur, where he said a fourth person died in the downtown area.

One of the Holdenville victims was 4 months old, Stitt's press secretary said, citing Holdenville officials.

More than 170 storms were reported Saturday after days of severe weather. Storms were still expected through southern Missouri to southeast Texas on Sunday.

Flash flooding is also a concern for 18 million people from Kansas City to Lake Charles, Louisiana. Some flood warnings will continue into Monday.Video emerging on social media early Sunday showed heavy damage across Sulphur, including toppled trees and scattered bricks and wooden beams. Buildings in the downtown area sustained significant structural damage, including blown-out windows and missing walls. Others appeared to have been leveled and reduced to rubble.

The Oklahoma Health Department reported 100 injuries at area hospitals, according to the state Emergency Management Department. Of the injured, 25 were cut or had been pierced, 30 fell, 16 were hit by or struck against objects, 17 sustained transportation-related injuries, and 12 others were hurt by other means, the emergency services department said. The extent of each of the injuries was unclear.

Red Cross Oklahoma said early Sunday that it was opening a shelter in Sulphur and was in contact with officials in more than a dozen counties to help with the immediate needs of affected residents.

Stitt signed an executive order Sunday declaring a disaster emergency.

In neighboring Hughes County, officials reported four people injured, as well as several structures either damaged or destroyed, after a tornado ripped through its western part late Saturday.

On Sunday, Hughes County Emergency Management reported 14 homes were damaged or destroyed in Holdenville. In addition, officials said four properties were damaged in Okfuskee County, and Pottawatomie County Emergency Management reported seven damaged structures in Dale and unincorporated areas of Shawnee.

There were also "numerous injuries" and damaged structures in Wagoner County, officials said.

Homes and other structures were also damaged in communities in Garfield, Grant, Kay, Payne and several other counties in Oklahoma, officials said.

The National Weather Service in Norman said that as of 1:25 a.m. local time Sunday, some tornado warnings had passed but that flash flooding remained a threat.

Bruce Thoren, meteorologist for the agency's Norman branch, said teams will go out to the Marietta and Sulphur areas while others may be sent elsewhere through the week.

"We are aware of other places that received damage, but based on travel time and other factors they will be looked at in days to come, probably not today," Thoren said. "The area that we cover is pretty large compared to other forecast offices, so to travel down and back could be up to four hours. So we’ll for sure get there, and we know there’s damage — just trying to figure out where we go today."Oklahoma Gas and Electric Co. said early Sunday about 28,000 customers were without service as a result of the storms, primarily in southern Oklahoma.

The Oklahoma Transportation Department warned early Sunday that I-35 was closed in both directions in Love County because of storm damage cleanup.

More than 30 million people in Oklahoma City; Dallas; Wichita, Kansas; Omaha, Nebraska; Milwaukee; and Madison, Wisconsin, were in the path of severe weather Saturday.

This round of severe weather arrived even as parts of Nebraska and Iowa were still reeling from the damage caused by two tornadoes that struck the region.

Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert said Saturday that no deaths had been reported and that there were relatively few minor injuries.

Despite heavy damage to some residents' homes, including those belonging to three Omaha firefighters and two police commanders, officials Saturday were grateful it wasn't worse. Speaking at an afternoon news conference, Stothert said she planned to sign an emergency declaration, which would allow residents to tap state and federal recovery aid.

She credited the National Weather Service and local news media for warning the public about the tornadoes.

"I do want to thank our local forecasters for the clear and accurate warnings that they gave," she said. "I absolutely feel that this early warning, because of all of you, you prevented a lot of injury and probably death."

Lindsay Huse, health director for Douglas County, where Omaha is located, said by email that fewer than two dozen people suffered minor injuries. They were treated at medical facilities and have been released, she said.

"That's just miraculous," Huse said earlier at the news conference.

The National Weather Service assessed two tornadoes that struck the Omaha area Friday afternoon. One started in the area of Lincoln and ended up in western Douglas County, NWS meteorologist Chris Franks said at the news conference. It was preliminarily assessed at a "solid" EF3 on the 0-5 scale used by federal forecasters, he said. An EF3 tornado can produce sustained winds of 136-165 mph and shift homes off their foundations while peeling away exterior walls.

At Omaha Eppley Airfield, a tornado preliminarily assessed at EF2 struck Friday afternoon, Franks said. An EF2 tornado can produce sustained winds of 111-135 mph that can partly peel away rooftops and breach window glass.

Tornado activity was also reported in neighboring Iowa. Franks estimated that 80 tornadoes were reported in Douglas County and adjacent communities in Nebraska and Iowa on Friday.

In Lancaster County, Nebraska, a tornado was blamed for a train derailment and a semitruck rollover, according to National Weather Service notes on Friday's vortexes.

Omaha Police Lt. Neal Bonacci said hundreds of homes were damaged, most of them in the Elkhorn area in the western part of the city.

“You definitely see the path of the tornado,” Bonacci said.

Police and firefighters went door to door to help residents and search areas where people could be trapped, Omaha Fire Chief Kathy Bossman said.

"We’ll be looking throughout properties in debris piles, we’ll be looking in basements, trying to find any victims and make sure everybody is rescued who needs assistance," Bossman said.

Pat Woods, who lives in Elkhorn, told The Associated Press that he and his wife took shelter but could hear the tornado "coming through."

"When we came up, our fence was gone, and we looked to the northwest and the whole neighborhood’s gone," he said.

His wife, Kim Woods, said the neighborhood to the north of them was "pretty flattened."

Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds declared a disaster emergency for Pottawattamie County after video on social media showed parts of Minden, about 30 miles northeast of Omaha, completely flattened. Jeff Theulen, the chief deputy of the Pottawattamie County Sheriff’s Office, said at a news conference Friday evening that 40 or 50 homes were "completely destroyed." There have been two reports of injuries, one "fairly severe but not life-threatening," he told reporters.

By Sunday, officials estimated that the storms had damaged 300 homes and businesses in the county, Pottawattamie County said in a release. In the city of Minden, 48 homes were "completely destroyed."

Pottawattamie County added in the release that four people sustained storm-related injuries. Three were treated and released Friday evening. The fourth, who was previously listed as stable in critical condition, died overnight Saturday.

"It's very dangerous right now. We've shut off entrance to the city except for the people that live here," he said, noting that "50% of the town is damaged badly and then there’s light damage everywhere else."

In nearby Shelby County, about 40 homes were damaged, county emergency coordinator Alex Londo said. Officials were assessing the destruction, he said, noting there have been no reports of deaths.

National Weather Service offices surveyed damage ahead of more severe weather expected Saturday.

The service reported 106 tornadoes Friday in Nebraska, Iowa, Texas, Kansas and Missouri. Another tornado was reported Friday morning in Pottawatomie County, Oklahoma. Oklahoma was also affected by the unstable air and thunderstorms that marched eastward Friday, but the weather service listed no confirmed tornadoes in the state.

Among Friday's tornadoes getting a preliminary assessment by the weather service were two near Waco, Texas — one believed to be at EF2 strength — and the other assessed at EF1 (86-110 mph).

Report: How Iran quickly covered up damage from Israeli retaliatory strike

Satellite photos reveal how Iran quickly swapped out an aerial defense radar that was destroyed with a different one.

Israel National News

Apr to the aerial defense system at the Natanz nuclear complex south of Tehran 25, 2024, 8:12 AM (GMT+3)

New satellite images reveal how Iran covered up the extent of the damage caused by Israel's retaliatory strike last week.

The Economist, citing imagery analyst Chris Biggers, reported that Israel appeared to have directly struck a 30n6e2 “Tombstone” radar, designed to track incoming air and missile threats, allowing interceptor missiles to take them out.

The rest of the aerial defense battery had been moved away, presumably in case Israel were to strike again.

Images shared by Biggers with The Economist show that by the day after the attack, Iran had swapped out the Tombstone radar for a different 96l6e “Cheeseboard” radar, placing it on the same spot. It also kept the launcher canisters, which fire interceptors, in an upright position, as though ready to fire.

Biggers summed up his findings: “It’s a case of denial and deception, to suggest the site is still operational.” The report notes that the site is almost certainly not operational, being that the two radars are not interchangeable and the aerial defense system will not work with a damaged Tombstone.

Earlier this week, new satellite images were released showing the damage caused to the Iranian military base in Isfahan by the alleged Israeli retaliatory strike.

The satellite images show what the Isfahan base looked like before and after the alleged Israeli strike.

Microsoft Launches Scary AI Technology That Can Create Deepfakes With Just A Single Photo And Audio Clip

by Jacob M. Thompson  ago 22 hours

5 Comments

Tech giant Microsoft recently launched a new artificial intelligence program called “VASA-1,” bragging that the software can “Lifelike Audio-Driven Talking Faces Generated in Real Time.”

The program can be produce hyper-realistic AI-generated animations with just a single photo reference and an audio clip, prompting fears that Microsoft has unwittingly released a deepfaking program upon the broad masses.

According to blog post on Microsoft’s website, the company says:

“We introduce VASA, a framework for generating lifelike talking faces of virtual characters with appealing visual affective skills (VAS), given a single static image and a speech audio clip. Our premiere model, VASA-1, is capable of not only producing lip movements that are exquisitely synchronized with the audio, but also capturing a large spectrum of facial nuances and natural head motions that contribute to the perception of authenticity and liveliness,” Microsoft promotes.

“The core innovations include a holistic facial dynamics and head movement generation model that works in a face latent space, and the development of such an expressive and disentangled face latent space using videos. Through extensive experiments including evaluation on a set of new metrics, we show that our method significantly outperforms previous methods along various dimensions comprehensively.

“Our method not only delivers high video quality with realistic facial and head dynamics but also supports the online generation of 512×512 videos at up to 40 FPS with negligible starting latency. It paves the way for real-time engagements with lifelike avatars that emulate human conversational behaviors,” they explain.

Our method is capable of not only producing precious lip-audio synchronization, but also generating a large spectrum of expressive facial nuances and natural head motions. It can handle arbitrary-length audio and stably output seamless talking face videos.

Microsoft added

The tech giant then provides a myriad of examples and applications as to what can be created, also showing that it effectively works with sketches and art pieces, for example.

In their research paper when discussing their findings, the researchers claim that this innovation in AI “paves the way for real-time engagements with lifelike avatars that emulate human conversational behaviors.”

Additionally, VASA-1 was trained by several scientists from the University of Oxford, on a dataset called VoxCeleb2. That dataset contains “over 1 million utterances for 6,112 celebrities,” taken from videos uploaded to YouTube, according to to the website.

Microsoft, however, swears that this technology is not intended to give people the ability to create deepfakes. SEE: Deep Fakes: How Movie Magic Is Now Our News

Microsoft writes:

It is not intended to create content that is used to mislead or deceive. However, like other related content generation techniques, it could still potentially be misused for impersonating humans. We are opposed to any behavior to create misleading or harmful contents of real persons, and are interested in applying our technique for advancing forgery detection. Currently, the videos generated by this method still contain identifiable artifacts, and the numerical analysis shows that there’s still a gap to achieve the authenticity of real videos.

While acknowledging the possibility of misuse, it’s imperative to recognize the substantial positive potential of our technique. The benefits – such as enhancing educational equity, improving accessibility for individuals with communication challenges, offering companionship or therapeutic support to those in need, among many others – underscore the importance of our research and other related explorations. We are dedicated to developing AI responsibly, with the goal of advancing human well-being.

Given such context, we have no plans to release an online demo, API, product, additional implementation details, or any related offerings until we are certain that the technology will be used responsibly and in accordance with proper regulations.

AUTHOR COMMENTARY

A true witness delivereth souls: but a deceitful witness speaketh lies.

Proverbs 14:25

The lies and deceit continue to keep waxing worse (2 Timothy 3:13). This is so obviously going to be used for deepfaking. Yeah, sure, there’s imperfections but most people are not going to notice it, especially if slanderously material goes viral on social media.

Be extra vigilant and be very careful with everything you see and hear. It seems like everything these days is a lie; and I have no doubt that this will be weaponized against innocents and Bible believers in disinformation campaigns at some point.

By honour and dishonour, by evil report and good report: as deceivers, and yet true;

2 Corinthians 6:8

[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).

Divide and Conquer: The Government’s Propaganda of Fear and Fake News

April 23, 2024

Guest Post by John W. Whitehead

It is the function of mass agitation to exploit all the grievances, hopes, aspirations, prejudices, fears, and ideals of all the special groups that make up our society, social, religious, economic, racial, political. Stir them up. Set one against the other. Divide and conquer. That’s the way to soften up a democracy.”― J. Edgar Hoover, Masters of Deceit

Nothing is real,” observed John Lennon, and that’s especially true of politics.

Much like the fabricated universe in Peter Weir’s 1998 film The Truman Show, in which a man’s life is the basis for an elaborately staged television show aimed at selling products and procuring ratings, the political scene in the United States has devolved over the years into a carefully calibrated exercise in how to manipulate, polarize, propagandize and control a population.

Take the media circus that is the Donald Trump hush money trial, which panders to the public’s voracious appetite for titillating, soap opera drama, keeping the citizenry distracted, diverted and divided.

This is the magic of the reality TV programming that passes for politics today.

Everything becomes entertainment fodder.

As long as we are distracted, entertained, occasionally outraged, always polarized but largely uninvolved and content to remain in the viewer’s seat, we’ll never manage to present a unified front against tyranny (or government corruption and ineptitude) in any form.

Studies suggest that the more reality TV people watch—and I would posit that it’s all reality TV, entertainment news included—the more difficult it becomes to distinguish between what is real and what is carefully crafted farce.

“We the people” are watching a lot of TV.

On average, Americans spend five hours a day watching television. By the time we reach age 65, we’re watching more than 50 hours of television a week, and that number increases as we get older. And reality TV programming consistently captures the largest percentage of TV watchers every season by an almost 2-1 ratio.

This doesn’t bode well for a citizenry able to sift through masterfully-produced propaganda in order to think critically about the issues of the day.

Yet look behind the spectacles, the reality TV theatrics, the sleight-of-hand distractions and diversions, and the stomach-churning, nail-biting drama that is politics today, and you will find there is a method to the madness.

We have become guinea pigs in a ruthlessly calculated, carefully orchestrated, chillingly cold-blooded experiment in how to control a population and advance a political agenda without much opposition from the citizenry.

This is how you persuade a populace to voluntarily march in lockstep with a police state and police themselves (and each other): by ratcheting up the fear-factor, meted out one carefully calibrated crisis at a time, and teaching them to distrust any who diverge from the norm through elaborate propaganda campaigns.

Unsurprisingly, one of the biggest propagandists today is the U.S. government.

Add the government’s inclination to monitor online activity and police so-called “disinformation,” and you have the makings of a restructuring of reality straight out of Orwell’s 1984, where the Ministry of Truth polices speech and ensures that facts conform to whatever version of reality the government propagandists embrace.

This “policing of the mind” is exactly the danger author Jim Keith warned about when he predicted that “information and communication sources are gradually being linked together into a single computerized network, providing an opportunity for unheralded control of what will be broadcast, what will be said, and ultimately what will be thought.”

You may not hear much about the government’s role in producing, planting and peddling propaganda-driven fake news—often with the help of the corporate news media—because the powers-that-be don’t want us skeptical of the government’s message or its corporate accomplices in the mainstream media.

However, when you have social media giants colluding with the government in order to censor so-called disinformation, all the while the mainstream news media, which is supposed to act as a bulwark against government propaganda, has instead become the mouthpiece of the world’s largest corporation (the U.S. government), the Deep State has grown dangerously out-of-control.

This has been in the works for a long time.

Veteran journalist Carl Bernstein, in his expansive 1977 Rolling Stone piece “The CIA and the Media,” reported on Operation Mockingbird, a CIA campaign started in the 1950s to plant intelligence reports among reporters at more than 25 major newspapers and wire agencies, who would then regurgitate them for a public oblivious to the fact that they were being fed government propaganda.

In some instances, as Bernstein showed, members of the media also served as extensions of the surveillance state, with reporters actually carrying out assignments for the CIA. Executives with CBS, the New York Times and Time magazine also worked closely with the CIA to vet the news.

If it was happening then, you can bet it’s still happening today, only this collusion has been reclassified, renamed and hidden behind layers of government secrecy, obfuscation and spin.

In its article, “How the American government is trying to control what you think,” the Washington Post points out “Government agencies historically have made a habit of crossing the blurry line between informing the public and propagandizing.”

This is mind-control in its most sinister form.

The end goal of these mind-control campaignspackaged in the guise of the greater good—is to see how far the American people will allow the government to go in re-shaping the country in the image of a totalitarian police state.

The government’s fear-mongering is a key element in its mind-control programming.

It’s a simple enough formula. National crises, global pandemics, reported terrorist attacks, and sporadic shootings leave us in a constant state of fear. The emotional panic that accompanies fear actually shuts down the prefrontal cortex or the rational thinking part of our brains. In other words, when we are consumed by fear, we stop thinking.

A populace that stops thinking for themselves is a populace that is easily led, easily manipulated and easily controlled whether through propaganda, brainwashing, mind control, or just plain fear-mongering.

Fear not only increases the power of government, but it also divides the people into factions, persuades them to see each other as the enemy and keeps them screaming at each other so that they drown out all other sounds. In this way, they will never reach consensus about anything and will be too distracted to notice the police state closing in on them until the final crushing curtain falls.

This Machiavellian scheme has so ensnared the nation that few Americans even realize they are being brainwashed—manipulated—into adopting an “us” against “them” mindset. All the while, those in power—bought and paid for by lobbyists and corporations—move their costly agendas forward.

This unseen mechanism of society that manipulates us through fear into compliance is what American theorist Edward L. Bernays referred to as “an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.”

It was almost 100 years ago when Bernays wrote his seminal work Propaganda:

We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of… In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons…who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.”

To this invisible government of rulers who operate behind the scenes—the architects of the Deep State—we are mere puppets on a string, to be brainwashed, manipulated and controlled.

All of the distracting, disheartening, disorienting news you are bombarded with daily is being driven by propaganda churned out by one corporate machine (the corporate-controlled government) and fed to the American people by way of yet another corporate machine (the corporate-controlled media).

For the first time in human history, there is a concerted strategy to manipulate global perception. And the mass media are operating as its compliant assistants, failing both to resist it and to expose it,” writes investigative journalist Nick Davies.

So where does that leave us?

Americans should beware of letting others—whether they be television news hosts, political commentators or media corporations—do their thinking for them.

A populace that cannot think for themselves is a populace with its backs to the walls: mute in the face of elected officials who refuse to represent us, helpless in the face of police brutality, powerless in the face of militarized tactics and technology that treat us like enemy combatants on a battlefield, and naked in the face of government surveillance that sees and hears all.

As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People and in its fictional counterpart The Erik Blair Diaries, it’s time to change the channel, tune out the reality TV show, and push back against the real menace of the police state.

If not, if we continue to sit back and lose ourselves in political programming, we will remain a captive audience to a farce that grows more absurd by the minute.

PRIORITY # ONE: DEPOPULATE INDIABiden Admin Eyes Sending U.S. Tax Dollars To Train Army Of Transgender Activists In India

Biden Admin Eyes Sending U.S. Tax Dollars To Train Army Of Transgender Activists In India

The Biden administration wants to train at least 200 activists to advocate for transgender rights in India as part of a program ostensibly designed to advance America’s “national interests,” according to a federal grant posting.

President Joe Biden’s State Department plans to “train at least 200 LGBTQI+ community leaders … with preference given to trans and intersex community leaders” by “deliver[ing] specialized legal education and support” which will, in turn, empower “them to advocate for their rights and access the services they need,” according to a grant announcement published on April 8.

The department is offering the grant under its Public Diplomacy Programs, which exist to “support the achievement of U.S. foreign policy goals and objectives, advance national interests, and enhance national security.”

The grant opportunity argues that “improved health, education, economic strength, justice and equality” for transgender people in India will ultimately benefit the United States.

The proposed program, titledEmpowering LGBTQI+ Community Leadership Across India,” focuses on transgender and intersex Indians because, according to the State Department, they face both “more severe discrimination and social stigma compared to other groups within the LGBTQI+ spectrum” as well as “unique challenges” when it comes to “accessing education, healthcare, employment and legal recourse against discrimination.”

To accomplish its goals, the program will utilize a “train the trainer” approach, using the 200 people it trains directly to reach a further 2,000 activists within one year. The State Department hopes to set off a “ripple effect” across India through this strategy.

The major Indian cities of Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai and New Delhi are all targets under the State Department’s program.

The department is offering between $120,000 and $150,000 for a third party to run the program, which it says will start on August 20.

Funding LGBT initiatives abroad, ostensibly to promote America’s interests, has been a defining factor of the State Department under Biden. Under the Biden administration, the State Department has bankrolled “queer” Muslim writers in India, funded theatrical productions to teach Africans about LBGT rights, backed a ballroom dancing program to “uplift” Peruvian transgender youth and paid a university to churn out “LGBTQI+ allies.”

The State Department did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

These Traitorous Scoundrels In Congress Waving Ukrainian Flags & Giving Them Billions Of Dollars Of US Taxpayer Money For More War While Americans Go Homeless Have Got To Go

April 23, 2024 By James Howard Kunstler and All News Pipeline

This is the weirdest era in human history. By far. Nothing else even comes close. Billionaires trying to kill everyone. Civil society unable to form a coherent thought. Institutions lie in smoldering ruins. Poisons handed out like candy. We are Neanderthals with iPhones.” — Dr. Toby Rogers

Did it warm your heart to see all those blue and yellow Ukrainian flags (in the photo above) waved by our elected officials in Congress Saturday night with the passage of the $60-plus-billion aid bill to the Palookaville of Europe? You realize, don’t you, that the tiny fraction of that hypothetical “money” — from our country’s empty treasury — that ever reaches Ukraine will rebound on the instant into Mr. Zelensky’s Cayman Islands bank account. The rest of the dough enters the recursive shell-game between US weapons-makers and the very hometown folks in Congress waving those blue and yellow flags, who will receive great greasy gobs of fresh “campaign donations” from the grateful bomb and missile producers. No wonder they’re cheering.

What the $60-plus-billion won’t do is provide any fresh arms and equipment to Ukraine’s sad-sack army soon enough to prevent Russia from bringing this cruel, stupid, and unnecessary war, which we started, to a close. Yes, we started it, not Russia, in 2014 with our Intel blob overthrowing elected President Viktor Yanukovych in the so-called “Maidan Revolution of Dignity” (that's what Wikipedia calls it). And for what reason? To jam Ukraine into NATO as a prelude to “weakening” Russia sufficient to bust it up and gain control over Russian oil, ores, and grain.

Yes, that was actually the neocon’s game, equal parts megalomania and hubris, a fiasco as strategically ill-fated as Hitler’s push to gain control of Russia’s oil fields via Stalingrad in 1942-3. With failure and humiliation looming in Ukraine, the blob’s objective for now, in theory, is the vain hope of prolonging the hostilities just long enough to get its hologram president, “Joe Biden” re-elected, so that said blob can continue its amoebic digestion of what’s left uneaten by it in our sore-beset republic. You’ve got to wonder, of course, what this blob thinks will remain to rule over when it’s done gobbling up everything and jailing everyone from sea to shining sea who objects.

Anything at all ANP readers can do to help us is hugely appreciated. We will no longer be online or have a home without some hefty donations in the next few days)

You tell me what conceivable way Ukraine can prevail in this proxy war now without just tripping off the civilization-ending nuke exchange? America does not have enough tactical missiles and artillery shells at hand to send over there. What we did have is gone. NATO never had much to begin with. Ukraine has run out of available cannon-fodder to conscript from its dwindling population. Despite Mr. Macron’s recent bluster, NATO can’t raise a credible army, or even agree on which country would send what. Nobody is riding to the rescue. Instead, Russia is fortifying its home-grown armaments industry and its military while systematically turning off the electricity all over Ukraine by blowing up the power stations. Very soon, Ukraine will be reduced to medieval living conditions — no lights, no phones, no Internet, no shopping, no ability to conduct modern warfare. End. . . of. . . story.

This is apt to play out much faster than America’s blob-controlled news media will be able to lie about. I’d guess it can be functionally over before mid-summer. The result will be yet another humiliation on the “Joe Biden” scorecard. When it’s over, you can be sure the Russians will abstain from an end-zone dance so as not to provoke America’s genius-losers into some final petty grand act of requital. Russia will just soberly declare what is self-evident: that for centuries Ukraine has been in its sphere-of-influence, as Mexico is in ours, and that they have reestablished the natural order of things in that corner of the world.

After that, America and the rest of Western Civ can get on with the collapse of their financial system and very likely a period of profound political and economic chaos in which governments fall, nations change boundaries and shapes, and their populations suffer dramatically from an imploded standard of living. That process may actually play out somewhat slower than the end of the Ukraine war over the coming years. It will look like a combined game of musical chairs and hot potato, with the opportunities to get a seat steadily fading, and the losers left holding things they can’t handle.

In the meantime, our country — remember it, the USA, when it had its once-enviable mojo working? — is busy being insane and finding sixty ways to Sunday to commit suicide. How do you suppose the Democratic Party will actually pretend to put up “Joe Biden” for re-election when the Ukraine failure is completed? Answer: they can’t. This dumbshow of the old gaffer hiding at his beach house and avoiding direct engagement with reality is also drawing to a close. Instead of calling “a lid” on “JB’s” activities, some humid morning in the swamp his handlers will call in “a medical alert” instead, and that will be the last we see of that dreadful apparition.

It’s also looking more and more as though the Republican Party faces its own civil war, especially after Speaker Mike Johnson’s perplexing flipperooski on the Ukraine aid vote. You recall, just weeks ago he said no dice to such a deal without a stop to the invasion coming across our Mexican border. Then, the intel blob boys lured him into a SCIF (Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility) where they showed him . . . something. . . ! Everyone’s dying to know what. A secret signed agreement making Ukraine our 51st State? Photographs of Mike engaged in unwholesome recreations with Gawd knows who or what? Or did they just have a little talk with him about how stuff is supposed to work? Whatever it was has made Mike Johnson untenable in his position. And he has explained nothing. He’s got to go.

At the other end of all that stands — or, rather, sits at a defense table — Donald Trump, the seemingly inevitable leader of a party seeking to cough him up like a hairball stuck in its craw. And yet, every week that passes, the various lawfare traps set up to snare him look more amateurish and gauche — while the Golden Golem of Greatness somehow manages to power through all that adversity. A big faction of the party he leads is in on that nefarious game. The wild card is the increasingly inflamed mood of the American people, in whose name the game is supposedly being played. With absolutely everyone lying to them about everything, it’s turned into some kind of bad faith olympics.

George Soros is paying student radicals who are fueling nationwide explosion of Israel-hating protests

By Social Links for Isabel Vincent

Published April 26, 2024, 6:00 a.m. ET

George Soros and his hard-left acolytes are paying agitators who are fueling the explosion of radical anti-Israel protests at colleges across the country.

The protests, which began when students took over Columbia University’s Morningside Heights campus lawn last week, have mushroomed nationwide.

Copycat tent cities have been set up at colleges including Harvard, Yale, Berkeley in California, the Ohio State University and Emory in Georgiaall of them organized by branches of the Soros-funded Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) — and at some, students have clashed with police.

The SJP parent organization has been funded by a network of nonprofits ultimately funded by, among others, Soros, the billionaire left-wing investor.

At three colleges, the protests are being encouraged by paid radicals who are “fellows” of a Soros-funded group called the US Campaign for Palestinian Rights (USCPR).

USCPR provides up to $7,800 for its community-based fellows and between $2,880 and $3,660 for its campus-based “fellowsin return for spending eight hours a week organizing “campaigns led by Palestinian organizations.”

They are trained to “rise up, to revolution.”

The radical group received at least $300,000 from Soros’ Open Society Foundations since 2017 and also took in $355,000 from the Rockefeller Brothers Fund since 2019.

It has three “fellows” who have been major figures in the nationwide protest movement.

Nidaa Lafi, a former president of the University of Texas Students for Justice in Palestine, was seen at an encampment at UT Dallas Wednesday making a speech demanding an end to the war in Gaza.

Lafi, a former legislative intern for the late Democratic Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson, graduated from the school last year with a degree in global business and is now a law student at Southern Methodist University in Dallas.

In January, she was detained for blocking the route of President Biden’s motorcade after he arrived in Dallas for the funeral of Johnson, her former boss.

At Yale, USCPR’s fellow Craig Birckhead-Morton was arrested Monday and charged with first-degree trespassing when SJP’s branch, Yalies4Palestine, occupied the school’s Beinecke Plaza, the Yale Daily News reported.

Birckhead-Morton — also a former intern for a Democrat, Maryland rep John Sarbanes — emerged from custody to address a sit-in blocking traffic in New Haven.

The most high-profile of the fellows is Berkeley’s Malak Afaneh, co-president of the Berkeley Law Students for Justice in Palestine.

She has been a serial speaker at an anti-Israel protest on the campus this week — which came after she first shot to prominence by hijacking a dinner at the law school dean’s home to shout anti-Israel slogans, then accused the dean’s wife of assaulting her when she asked the radical to leave.

The cash from Soros and his acolytes has been critical to the Columbia protests that set off the national copycat demonstrations.

Three groups set up the tent city on Columbia’s lawn last Wednesday: Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) and Within Our Lifetime.

At the “Gaza Solidarity Encampment,” students sleep in tents apparently ordered from Amazon and enjoy delivery pizza, coffee from Dunkin’, free sandwiches worth $12.50 from Pret a Manger, organic tortilla chips and $10 rotisserie chickens.

An analysis by The Post shows that all three got cash from groups linked to Soros. The Rockefeller Brothers Fund also gave cash to JVP.

The fund is chaired by David Rockefeller Jr., a fourth-generation member of the oil dynasty, and gives money to “sustainable development” and “peace-building.”

And a former Wall Street banker, Felice Gelman, a retired investment banker who has dedicated her Wall Street fortune to pro-Palestinian causes, funded all three groups.

Both SJP and JVP were expelled from Columbia University in November for “threatening rhetoric and intimidation.” JVP blamed Israel for the Oct 7 Hamas terrorist attack that left 1,200 Israelis dead.

“Israeli apartheid and occupation — and United States complicity in that oppression — are the source of all this violence,” JVP said in a statement on its website.

SJP called the terrorist strike on Israel “a historic win.”

An analysis by The Post shows how Soros and Gelman’s cash made its way to the students through a network of nonprofits that help obscure their contributions.

Soros has given billions to the Open Society Foundations which his son Alexander — whose partner is Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s top aide and the estranged wife of pervert Anthony Weiner — now controls.

In turn, Open Society has given more than $20 million to the Tides Foundation, a progressive nonprofit “fiscal sponsor” that then sends the cash to smaller groups.

Those groups include A Jewish Voice for Peace, which between 2017 and 2022 has received $650,000 from Soros’ Open Society. Its advisers include the academic Noam Chomsky and the left-wing feminist author Naomi Klein.

JVP has been a prominent part of the protests at Columbia and one of its student members was among a group expelled from the university for inviting the leader of a proscribed terrorist group, Khaled, to the “Resistance 101” Zoom meeting.

Soros has also donated $132,000 to WESPAC, called in full the Westchester People’s Action Coalition Foundation.

The White Plains-based nonprofit was founded in 1974 to rally for civil rights and against the Vietnam War but is now a major funder of anti-Israel groups, including Within Our Lifetime and Students for Justice in Palestine.

SJP has also received funding from the Sparkplug Foundation, a New York-based nonprofit run by Gelman and her husband, Yoram Gelman.

The couple funneled their $20,000 donation to the group through WESPAC in 2022, according to public filings.

Gelman was previously on WESPAC’s committee for Justice and Peace in the Middle East in 2009 when she was invited to Gaza by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, according to the group’s website.

The UN group has been slammed for its support of Hamas.

Gelman is on the board of the Bard Lifetime Learning Institute, an offshoot of the infamously progressive college, as well as the Jenin Freedom Theatre, located in the Jenin refugee camp in the West Bank.

WESPAC president Howard Horowitz, a former Orthodox Jew, is a member of the New York chapter of JVP, which says it works for “advocacy and public education for Palestinian human rights.”

Horowitz said he embraced the Palestinian cause after time spent living in Israel, according to a report in the Israel Times.

WESPAC has also given money to Within Our Lifetime, founded by the ubiquitous anti-Israeli protester Nerdeen Kiswani.

Within our Lifetime uses a loophole in the law to avoid declaring how much it receives from donors by not being a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, meaning it is unknown how Kiswani has benefited.

However, WESPAC is named as a fiscal sponsor of Within Our Lifetime.

None of the groups responded to requests by The Post for comment.

Outrage as drag queen leads young kids in ‘free Palestine’ chant: ‘Wrong on every level’

By Social Links for Emily Crane

Published April 25, 2024, 8:20 a.m. ET

Video of a drag queen in Massachusetts leading a group of young kids to chant “Free Palestine” has sparked fierce backlash — with some calling it “indoctrination” that is “wrong on every level.”

The encounter, which unfolded at a “Queer Storytime for Palestine” event organized by the Valley Families for Palestine group in Amherst last week, had gone viral by Thursday as outrage mounted.

Today what we’re going to do is shout ‘Free Palestine.’ Can I hear that?” the drag queen, known as “Lil Miss Hot Mess,” was filmed telling the children in the 30-second clip.

If you’re a drag queen and you know it, and you really want to show it, if you’re a drag queen and you know it, shout ‘Free Palestine.'”

The kids could be heard mimicking the drag queen by repeatedly chanting “Free Palestine.”

Furious critics were quick to point out the hypocrisy of a drag queen touting the phrase given the harsh treatment of LGBTQ people in Gaza.

“The harsh reality? Members of the LGBTQ+ community are often murdered in Gaza and other Palestinian areas such as Ramallah,” Stop Antisemitism tweeted alongside the recording.

Often times members of the LGBTQ+ community seek refuge in Israel as their lives are endangered and their families excommunicate them. Were these children taught these points?”

An indoctrination double whammy: ‘Free Palestine’ meets ‘drag queen story hour,'” Eitan Fischberger, a former Israel Defense Forces sergeant, tweeted.

If people can’t see that drag queens teaching kids to chant ‘Free Palestine’ is wrong on every level, then they seriously are part of the problem,” British TV host and politician Nigel Farage raged in a post on X.

Meanwhile, Jake Wallis Simons, the editor of the Jewish Chronicle, quipped: “Seriously. Yahya Sinwar, Putin, Xi and the Ayatollah are laughing so hard (and sharpening their knives).”

Drag Queen Story Hour somehow just got worse,” the Citizen Free Press declared.

The organizers of the event had earlier shared a slew of photos on its Instagram account of the young children and their parents watching on smiling as the drag queen performed for them.

The group also boasted of the “important lessons” the kids learned during the story time event.

We came together today in joy and solidarity and learned some important lessons about being ourselves, using our voices to speak out against injustice, and being fabulous while we do it,” a caption on the post read.

Valley Families for Palestine and the drag queen didn’t immediately respond to The Post’s request for comment about the backlash.

This Is Why Everyone Needs To Prepare For The Day When Devastating Cyberattacks Take U.S. Power Grids Down

April 24, 2024 by Michael

What would you do if the power grid where you live went down and there was no electricity for an extended period of time? You might want to think about that, because experts are warning that it is just a matter of time before cyberattacks successfully cripple our power grids. In fact, foreign hackers are working hard to infiltrate critical infrastructure as you read this article. As you will see below, we are extremely vulnerable, and the Russians and the Chinese have both developed highly advanced cyberwarfare capabilities. When the U.S. ends up fighting a war with Russia or China (or both simultaneously), devastating cyberattacks on our power grids will be conducted. When your community is suddenly plunged into darkness, what is your plan?

The United States and Canada are not covered by a single power grid.

Rather, there are multiple grids that collectively provide the electricity that all of us need. The following explanation comes from Wikipedia…

The electrical power grid that powers Northern America is not a single grid, but is instead divided into multiple wide area synchronous grids.[1] The Eastern Interconnection and the Western Interconnection are the largest. Three other regions include the Texas Interconnection, the Quebec Interconnection, and the Alaska Interconnection. Each region delivers power at a nominal 60 Hz frequency. The regions are not usually directly connected or synchronized to each other, but there exist some HVDC interconnectors. The Eastern and Western grids are connected via seven links that allow 1.32 GW to flow between them. A study by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory found that increasing these interconnections would save energy costs.[2]

Bloomberg is reporting that “US power grids are facing heightened risks of cyber and physical attacks as the election nears”, and one expert is warning that there is “a 100 percent chance” that critical infrastructure will eventually be breached at some point…

I think there’s a 100 percent chance that organizations in the critical infrastructure space at some point will experience some short of breach,” said Stephanie Benoit Kurtz, lead cybersecurity faculty at the College of Business and Information Technology at the University of Phoenix. “No longer are the days when organizations can say, ‘We’ll never be breached.’ It’s not if, it’s when.”

Sadly, I believe that she is quite correct.

We should have never exposed our power grids to the Internet, and now we are incredibly vulnerable.

During a recent congressional hearing, FBI Director Christopher Wray publicly admitted that Chinese hackers have been targeting our power grids…

FBI Director Christopher Wray said Wednesday that China’s hackers are targeting American critical infrastructure, including water treatment plants, pipelines and the power grid, to be able to “wreak havoc” in the U.S. if Beijing ever decides to do so.

Testifying before the House Select Committee on the Chinese Communist Party, Wray also warned that there has been too little public attention on the threat that he says China’s efforts pose to national security.

“China’s hackers are positioning on American infrastructure in preparation to wreak havoc and cause real-world harm to American citizens and communities, if and when China decides the time has come to strike,” Wray told lawmakers.

This is a very real threat.

The moment that China invades Taiwan, the U.S. and China will be at war.

And the Office of the Director of National Intelligence has warned that ““if Beijing feared that a major conflict with the United States were imminent, it almost certainly would consider undertaking aggressive cyber operations against U.S. homeland critical infrastructure and military assets worldwide.”

Most Americans don’t realize that the groundwork for such cyber operations is already being laid. For example, last August Chinese hackers specifically targeted the Texas power grid…

The report says that, in August, hackers attempted to access the computer systems used by the Public Utility Commission of Texas, or the PUC, and the Electric Reliability Council of Texas, or ERCOT, which operate the state’s power grid. Most of Texas is on its own power grid, separate from the grids used by most of the country.

If you think that our systems are secure, you are just being delusional.

The truth is that we are extremely vulnerable, and the North American Electric Reliability Corporation admits that the number of weak spots is growing with each passing day…

U.S. power grids are increasingly vulnerable to cyberattacks, with the number of susceptible points in electrical networks increasing by about 60 per day, the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) said in a webcast on Thursday.

The grids’ virtual and physical weak spots, or points in software or hardware that are susceptible to cyber criminals, grew to a range of 23,000 to 24,000 last year from 21,000 to 22,000 by the end of 2022, executives with the energy regulator said.

It’s very hard to keep pace with addressing all those vulnerabilities,” said Manny Cancel, senior vice president of NERC.

But foreign entities wouldn’t even need to gain access through a weak spot if there are already back doors in place.

According to one analysis, “about 90 percent of software used to manage the U.S. power grid is linked to Russian and Chinese developers”…

Orlando based Fortress Information Security explained that any “kid” with internet can contribute their “block” that then can be developed into software used in America’s critical infrastructure. A “block”, one of these code components, can risk the whole structure– our energy grid.

A Chinese agent or a Russian agent can install backdoors into one of these components. And then unbeknownst to a software manufacturer, you grab this component, which has been tampered with and poisoned by Russian or Chinese actor and now they put that component into their software, and it ends up in our electrical grid or, or an oil rig,” said Alex Santos, CEO of Fortress Information Security.

The company analyzed nearly 8,000 of these open-source components. 13 percent had contributions from Russia and China. Fortress found about 90 percent of software used to manage the U.S. power grid is linked to Russian and Chinese developers—something that can make it three times as likely to contain critical vulnerabilities.

How in the world did we allow that to happen?

Are we really that incompetent?

I was floored when I first read that.

I had no idea that we were so vulnerable.

Of course it isn’t just our power infrastructure that is being targeted. According to Politico, Europe has been “inundated” with cyberattacks since Russia invaded Ukraine…

Thousands of cyberattacks have inundated Europe’s energy grid since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and a top industry leader is calling for help as officials and researchers fret that not nearly enough is being done.

“The crooks are becoming better by the day, so we need to become better by the day,” Leonhard Birnbaum, the chief executive of E.ON, one of Europe’s largest utilities, said in an interview. “I’m worried now and I will be even more worried in the future.”

We have never seen this sort of warfare before.

So most people greatly underestimate the threat.

But someday the power in your area could suddenly go out without any warning whatsoever.

Temporary interruptions are not a problem, but if the power is out for an extended period of time our entire way of life will start rapidly shutting down…

When power stops, life grinds to a halt. Lights go out. Sewage treatment stops. Clean water stops. Electric cars, buses and trolleys stop. Elevators stop, trapping older and disabled people. For many, home heating, refrigeration, cooking and clothes washing stops, along with medical devices such as oxygen generators.

For many years, I have been warning my readers that conflict with Russia and conflict with China would be coming.

Now both of them are actively hacking into power infrastructure in the United States and Europe.

I hope you have a plan, because it is just a matter of time before cyberattacks start causing widespread chaos all over the globe.

US Secretly Armed Ukraine With Long-Range ATACMS Last Month

by Tyler Durden

Thursday, Apr 25, 2024 - 12:25 PM

Authored by Dave DeCamp via AntiWar.com,

The US confirmed on Wednesday that it had secretly sent Ukraine long-range Army Tactical Missile Systems (ATACMS) last month as part of a $300 million arms package.

The long-range ATACMS can be fired from the HIMARS rocket systems and can hit targets up to 190 miles away, a range that marks a significant escalation in US support for Ukraine.

Last year, the US secretly shipped an older cluster bomb variant of the ATACMS that has a range of about 100 miles. Previously the Pentagon signaled it was intentionally limiting ranges of missiles shipped to Ukraine.

A Biden administration official said Ukraine has already used the longer-range ATACMS twice, including in an attack on a Russian base in Crimea. US-supported attacks on Crimea or the Russian mainland always risk a major escalation from Moscow.

National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said a "significant number" of the ATACMS have been sent to Ukraine but wouldn’t specify how many.

He said more were on the way as part of a $1 billion arms package that President Biden approved on Wednesday, although the Pentagon didn’t list ATACMS when it announced the weapons shipment.

The $95 billion foreign military aid bill President Biden signed into law on Wednesday included a provision that said Ukraine would be sent long-range ATACMS.

In response to that news, the Kremlin reaffirmed its long-stated position that it will take more territory in Ukraine to counteract the long-range NATO missiles.

North Korea says it tested ‘super-large’ cruise missile warhead and new anti-aircraft missile

Korean Central News Agency released photos showing at least two missiles being fired off launcher trucks on a runway. The missiles in the image were not identified. State media said North Korea’s missile administration on Friday conducted a ‘power test’ for the warhead designed for the Hwasal-1 Ra-3 strategic cruise missile and a test-launch of the Pyoljji-1-2 anti-aircraft missile.

By KIM TONG-HYUNG

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korea said Saturday it tested a “super-large” cruise missile warhead and a new anti-aircraft missile in a western coastal area as it expands military capabilities in the face of deepening tensions with the United States and South Korea.

North Korean state media said the country’s missile administration on Friday conducted a “power test” for the warhead designed for the Hwasal-1 Ra-3 strategic cruise missile and a test-launch of the Pyoljji-1-2 anti-aircraft missile. It said the tests attained an unspecified “certain goal.”

Photos released by the North’s official Korean Central News Agency showed at least two missiles being fired off launcher trucks at a runway.

North Korea conducted a similar set of tests Feb. 2, but at the time did not specify the names of the cruise missile or the anti-aircraft missile, indicating it was possibly seeing technological progress after testing the same system over weeks.

KCNA insisted Friday’s tests were part of the North’s regular military development activities and had nothing to do with the “surrounding situation.”

Tensions on the Korean Peninsula are at their highest in years, with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un dialing up his weapons demonstrations, which have included more powerful missiles aimed at the U.S. mainland and U.S. targets in the Pacific. The United States, South Korea and Japan have responded by expanding their combined military training and sharpening their deterrence strategies built around strategic U.S. assets.

Cruise missiles are among a growing collection of North Korean weapons designed to overwhelm regional missile defenses. They supplement the North’s vast lineup of ballistic missiles, including intercontinental ballistic missiles aimed at the continental United States.

Analysts say anti-aircraft missile technology is an area where North Korea could benefit from its deepening military cooperation with Russia, as the two countries align in the face of their separate, intensifying confrontations with the U.S. The United States and South Korea have accused North Korea of providing artillery shells and other equipment to Russia to help extend its warfighting in Ukraine.

Defiant Putin goes to war in Ukraine with a warning for U.S., NATO

“No one should have any doubts that a direct attack on our country will lead to defeat and dire consequences for any potential aggressor,” the Russian leader said.

Feb. 24, 2022, 4:55 PM UTC

By Alexander Smith

When war came to Europe on Thursday, it was delivered with terrifying force and a blunt warning.

After months of military buildup, thinly veiled threats and frenzied speculation, the scale of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s plans was finally made clear.

In a pre-dawn address on Russian television, Putin announced that he was attacking Ukraine, a sovereign democracy on his doorstep. The barrage started minutes later — a moment the United States and its have allies have predicted for weeks, but which nonetheless reverberated throughout the international order.

Putin's speech contained a chilling warning to any countries thinking of leaping to Ukraine's defense in the face of a Russian invasion: Intervene and you will face the full force of the Kremlin's nuclear arsenal.

"I decided to conduct a special military operation," Putin said, wearing a suit and a red tie and sitting behind his now-familiar desk, flanked by two Russian flags and a cluster of retro-looking telephones.

Russia "is today one of the most powerful nuclear powers in the world," he added, as if Washington, London and Paris needed reminding of his world-largest arsenal. "No one should have any doubts that a direct attack on our country will lead to defeat and dire consequences for any potential aggressor."

UKRAINE-RUSSIA-CONFLICT

The message was received unambiguously.

“The Kremlin’s aim is to re-establish its sphere of influence, rip up the global rules that have kept us all safe for decades and subvert the values that we hold dear,” NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said Thursday. “Peace on our continent has been shattered.”

Russia’s invasion is likely to cause mass casualties, a humanitarian crisis and economic chaos, and it is sure to draw severe sanctions against Moscow. But while the fog of missile strikes hung over Eastern Europe on Thursday, it was clear the continent was waking to a different threat from Moscow.

In his 20-plus years of rule, Putin has annexed Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula, carved off regions of neighboring Georgia, helped turn the tide in Syria's civil war and interfered in elections across the globe.

The Russian leader has often used proxy forces abroad, and denied any election interference. But many Kremlin-watchers see the Ukraine invasion as a departure even from his bellicose standards.

One unforeseen consequence of the pandemic, tweeted Lawrence Freedman, emeritus professor of war studies at Kings College London, was that Putin would become "a paranoid autocrat in isolation nurturing his fantasies of war."

As recently as a week ago, a convincing case could be made that the Russian leader was bluffing with his military buildup.

Putin was issuing bold demands to the West about security guarantees while massing troops on his neighbor's borders, but unlike previous conflicts Russia's Kremlin-controlled state media was not selling its audience on the idea that war was imminent. That switch was flipped last week.

Then on Monday, Putin stopped short of declaring war but laid out the case for one, delivering a revisionist history that painted Ukraine as an illegitimate country that belonged within Moscow's realm.

As he launched his attack Thursday, Putin turned his attention to the West.

Washington, he said, has sought to dominate the world since the end of the Cold War: pressuring allies to hew to its cultural norms; using this hegemonic dominance to launch illegal wars; and encircling Russia by expanding NATO into former Soviet republics in Eastern Europe.

The Western "war machine is moving," he warned, "and, I repeat, is coming close to our borders."

NATO, the U.S. and indeed the former Soviet republics themselves would all point out that these countries overwhelmingly voted for independence in 1991 as the Soviet Union collapsed, then voluntarily joined alliances like the European Union and NATO.

What Putin actually wants to stop, many analysts in the West believe, is not NATO, but rather the liberal democracy on his doorstep that contrasts with his own repressive state.

Ukraine "had this simple idea that they wanted to have free and fair elections and not have people in Moscow telling them what to do," Michael McFaul, a former U.S. ambassador to Russia, said on MSNBC Thursday. And now Putin "wants them to pay the price."

The Kremlin's brazen actions should also be a clarifying moment for European powers that they are now firmly in a new era of security, said Fabrice Pothier, NATO’s former head of policy planning, in comments made before the Russian attack.

More so than the U.S. and U.K., France and Germany have treated Putin as a man who can be reasoned with diplomatically, Pothier said. But if nothing else the Ukraine crisis should have made this complex picture far simpler.

Our security," he said, "depends on the mood of an autocrat."

US reveals it quietly sent Ukraine missile systems that could hit Russia as Pentagon announces $1B aid package

By Social Links for Caitlin Doornbos

Published April 24, 2024, 5:06 p.m. ET

WASHINGTON – The White House announced a new $1 billion military aid package for Ukraine Wednesday – and revealed the Pentagon quietly sent Kyiv controversial long-range missile systems capable of striking deep behind Russia’s frontlines earlier this month.

Minutes after signing a long-delayed $95 billion foreign assistance supplemental bill into law, President Biden promised that aid would begin rolling to Ukraine within “a few hours.”

Moments later, the Pentagon released an announcement detailing the critical weapons and military equipment it was sending to the besieged country.

While most of the equipment in the initial package fulfills basic military needs — and includes anti-aircraft missiles, small arms, artillery rounds, and night vision gear — national security adviser Jake Sullivan revealed that the US had quietly sent Ukraine Army Tactical Missile Systems (ATACMS) weeks ago, despite the White House saying there was no funding left for such assistance.

GOP leaders had successfully advocated for ATACMS to be included in future packages if the supplemental passed, senior House Republican staff told The Post last week.

Biden had previously been hesitant to send the impressive weapons to Ukraine, partly due to fears of escalating the fight.

Moscow’s troops had gained the upper hand on the battlefield in recent months, taking more territory and sneaking more missiles past Kyiv’s air-defense systems as Congress tussled over the supplemental funding package, which Biden first requested in October.

You can measure the impact [of the funding delay] in different ways. With respect to actual territory, we’re talking about tactical losses in the east, not some fundamental structural shift in the underlying dynamic in the conflict,” Sullivan told reporters at the White House.

“But you can also measure it just in terms of the the wear and tear in places on a frontline unit who has to ration ammunition, because they’re not getting the steady flows,” he added.

The package announced Wednesday also includes Bradley fighting vehicles, Humvees, Claymore mines, MRAP vehicles, and Javelin surface-to-air missiles.

While Ukraine still seeks other capabilities, such as more Patriot missile batteries, the lower-budget items such as artillery shells and spare parts to get weapons back on the battlefield will be welcomed by Kyiv’s forces.

When The Post visited Ukrainian troops at the front last month, an infantry unit commander had said the shortage had become so drastic they had rationed their artillery, only firing on the enemy if there was a large group gathered together.

Ukraine’s long-range capabilities, artillery, and air defense are critical tools for restoring just peace sooner,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said in a post to X. “I am grateful to all Americans who continue to support Ukraine and recognize that the historical significance of this bill extends beyond politics.”

This vote [to approve the supplemental] reinforces America’s role as a beacon of democracy and the leader of the free world,” he added.

Wednesday marked the 56th tranche of military equipment the Pentagon has sent Ukraine since the fall of 2021, when Russian President Vladimir Putin began preparing for his invasion launched on Feb. 24, 2022.

It typically takes the Pentagon no more than four days to deliver a new weapons package, meaning the equipment could be in Ukrainian hands by Monday.

15 State Officials Warn Bank Of America About 'De-Banking' Of Christians

by Tyler Durden

Sunday, Apr 21, 2024 - 10:40 PM

Authored by Naveen Athrappully via The Epoch Times,

A group of 15 financial officials from 13 states sent a notice to Bank of America, raising concerns about the institution’s “de-banking” of Christians.

“We write to express our concerns over Bank of America’s troubling track record of politicized de-banking. Bank of America’s de-banking policies and practices threaten the company’s financial health, its reputation with customers, our nation’s economy, and the civil liberties of everyday Americans,” the officials wrote in an April 18 letter to Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan.

“We are especially troubled by Bank of America’s track record of discriminating against religious ministries. Notable examples include Memphis-based charity Indigenous Advance Ministries, the Timothy Two Project, and Christian author and speaker Lance Wallnau.”

In April 2023, Bank of America shut down the account of Indigenous Advance Ministries, which partners with groups in the African nation of Uganda to provide care and education for orphaned and at-risk children. The bank closed accounts of a Memphis church which donated to the organization.

Bank of America provided “vague reasons” for the closure of these accounts, claiming the organization’s activities exceeded the institution’s “risk tolerance” and that it no longer wanted to serve its “business type.”

“Months later—after being confronted by an international media organization—the bank then claimed that it closed the accounts because the for-profit business engaged in ‘debt collection.’ Neither Indigenous Advance Ministries nor the church collect debts, nor was the bank able to point to any policy prohibiting account holders from engaging in such activities,” the letter said.

“In other words that rationale was a ruse, and even if legitimate, would only apply to one of the closed accounts.”

In 2020, the bank closed the account of Timothy Two Project International, which trains pastors in more than 65 nations. In a letter to the group, the bank claimed the closure was due to Timothy Two operating “a business type we have chosen not to service.”

The financial institution also froze the accounts of author Mr. Wallnau, alleging he was suspected of money laundering. However, the bank failed to provide any evidence supporting such accusations.

While the bank eventually unfroze the account, they required Mr. Wallnau to answer a series of invasive questions.

This pattern of religious de-banking strongly suggests that systemic drivers of religious and political bias may be at work within Bank of America,” the letter said.

One objective indicator of such a problem is the bank’s egregiously low score on the Viewpoint Diversity Score Business Index, the premier benchmark for measuring corporate respect for free speech and religious freedom. Bank of America scored a meager 8 percent out of a possible 100 percent.”

The letter pointed out that Bank of America’s vague terms of service allow them to deny services for political or religious views. For instance, the company’s policy says it can refuse services to clients deemed to “promote intolerance … or hate.”

This policy can be weaponized by the bank against clients who express certain views, which are protected by the First Amendment, the officials wrote.

Bank of America funds and partners with anti-free speech organizations like the Human Rights Campaign and the Center for American Progress while preventing employees from giving to faith-based groups in their employee gift match program.”

Bank of America, being the second largest bank in the nation and a recipient of a host of government subsidies, is obligated to ensure equal access to marketplace for all Americans and “not play politics,” officials wrote.

The letter was written by officials from Alabama, Arizona, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and Utah.

They demanded that the institution implement certain recommendations, including eliminating “existing viewpoint discriminatory terms” governing customers, updating its terms of service to include a commitment to not discriminate on the basis of religion or politics, and taking part in a survey to assess how the bank’s policies impact the civil liberties of its customers.

The Epoch Times reached out to the bank for comment.

De-banking of Conservatives

The issue of de-banking conservatives has been a hot topic in recent years. A November 2022 statement signed by 60 financial professionals alleged that banks like JP Morgan Chase, Wells Fargo, Capital One, and Morgan Stanley were engaged in political or religious discrimination.

JP Morgan Chase refused to process payments for a GOP-aligned organization,” it said.

In addition, the bank “shuttered the National Committee for Religious Freedom’s account without explanation, demanding that the nonprofit disclose its donors and provide a list of the political candidates it intends to support as a condition of resuming service.”

Meanwhile, Morgan Stanley refused to do business with organizations that raised “significant human rights, environmental, health, and safety or social responsibility issues.”

Similarly, credit behemoth Visa mandated that merchants do not use its services in any manner deemed “hateful.”

What these vague, unspecified terms mean in practice is subject to the arbitrary interpretation of each of your companies, or any one of thousands of employees charged with enforcing them,” the statement said.

Policies like these place customers and clients at risk of being ‘debanked’ simply because a company employee disagrees with their point of view on any number of contentious social issues.”

Meanwhile, states are taking action to end financial discrimination against conservatives by the banking industry.

Iowa earlier this year introduced Senate Study Bill 3094, which bans financial institutions from discriminating against customers using a “social credit score.”

The bill defines “social credit score” as any evaluation of a person’s “speech, religious exercise, association, expression, or conduct protected by the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.”

If a financial institution is found violating the law, the attorney general can bring a civil action against the institution. A court can order the institution to pay damages, restitution, or other compensation.

In February, State Rep. Jason Zachary (R-Tenn.) introduced a similar bill in Tennessee. “This legislation prohibits the 20 largest banks in our country from denying financial services to any Tennessean based on political speech, religious belief, or a social credit score,” he said at a state House Banking and Consumer Affairs Committee hearing.

Thanks to Biden, China Could Start World War III Here

by Gordon G. Chang April 22, 2024 at 5:00 am

China is swarming the waters of the Philippines, hoping to intimidate Manila into surrendering territory. US President Joe Biden and the State Department keep on issuing warnings, but Chinese President Xi Jinping continues to ignore them, suggesting deterrence is failing....

[R]ecently, China took Scarborough Shoal .... Washington then brokered an agreement for both sides to withdraw their craft, but only Manila complied. Beijing has been in firm control of Scarborough ever since.

When Chinese leaders, generals and admirals saw Washington's failure to act, they began moving against Second Thomas Shoal and other Philippine reefs and islets in the South China Sea, went after Japan's islets in the East China Sea, and began reclaiming and militarizing features in the Spratly chain. Biden as vice president legitimized the worst elements in the Chinese political system by showing everyone that aggression works.

Beijing has been waging proxy wars on three continents: Europe in Ukraine, Africa across its northern rim, and Asia in Israel and surrounding areas.

Xi apparently now believes he is boss of the world. "Change is coming that hasn't happened in 100 years," the Chinese leader told Russian President Vladimir Putin after their 40th in-person chat, in Moscow on March 22 last year. "And we are driving this change together."

Biden is now trying to reestablish deterrence. Britain and France desperately attempted to do that in late summer 1939 when they warned Germany that they would declare war if it invaded Poland. Then, German leaders did not believe the British and the French would in fact fight because for three years they had failed to make good on previous warnings.

Philippine's navy announced that, during the afternoon of April 15, it had observed 55 Chinese vessels in the West Philippine Sea, Manila's designation for the South China Sea.

China is swarming the waters of the Philippines, hoping to intimidate Manila into surrendering territory. US President Joe Biden and the State Department keep on issuing warnings, but Chinese President Xi Jinping continues to ignore them, suggesting deterrence is failing and an incident leading to war could occur at any time.

Of the craft spotted Monday, 48 were from China's maritime militia, six from the Chinese Coast Guard, and one was from the People's Liberation Army Navy.

China's intrusions that day were spread across the South China Sea. Twenty-six of the vessels were spotted at Scarborough Shoal, six at Second Thomas Shoal, 20 near Pagasa Island, two near Panata Island, and the remaining one at Lawak Island.

Beijing claims all the features and waters inside its infamous "cow's tongue," now defined by ten dashes on official maps, which encloses about 85 percent of the South China Sea. Those waters, the Chinese proclaim, are its "blue national soil."

China's expansive claims to Philippine features in that body of water were invalidated in 2016 by a tribunal adjudicating Philippines vs. China, brought under the U.N. Convention on the Law of the Sea. The US Secretary of State at the time, John Kerry, said that Beijing should accept the 2016 ruling, but unfortunately also announced that Washington would not take sides. Backing Beijing's position on talks, he then pressured Manila to negotiate with China. Kerry, in short, could not bring himself to uphold the centuries-old American policy of defending international waters and airspace.

Beijing, with virtually no legal support, has consistently maintained that the decision in favor of Manila "is illegal, null, and void." "We do not accept or acknowledge the so-called award," the Chinese Foreign Ministry declared on X on the 18th of this month.

Second Thomas Shoal, where Manila in 1999 grounded the Sierra Madre, a World War II-era vessel, is now a flashpoint. There, Chinese vessels have recently engaged in rammings, water cannon attacks, and other dangerous acts. On March 5, China wounded four Filipino sailors at Second Thomas.

In response, the Biden State Department issued written warnings — two last month on March 5 and 23 — that the U.S. would use force against China to discharge its obligations pursuant to Article IV of the 1951 U.S.-Philippines Mutual Defense Treaty.

Biden has orally issued similar warnings, for instance on October 25 of last year and the 11th of this month. On the 11th, Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. and Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida visited the White House for defense talks, the first ever Japan-Philippines-U.S. trilateral summit.

Unfortunately, the Biden administration's words and displays of solidarity have not impressed Xi. His blue, white, and gray hulls — the maritime militia, coast guard, and navy, respectively — have stepped up aggressive tactics.

Has deterrence failed? True, China has not recently landed troops at a Philippine island, shoal, or reef. Yet the persistent pressure applied to the Philippines suggests Xi is not terribly worried about America opposing his adventurism.

Why would he feel so bold? For one thing, the Clinton administration in 1995 did nothing after China seized and later fortified Mischief Reef, 130 nautical miles from the Philippine island of Palawan and in the exclusive economic zone of the Philippines.

More recently, China took Scarborough Shoal. Philippine authorities there had lawfully detained Chinese poachers in early 2012, and China's vessels then swarmed the feature, only 124 nautical miles from the main Philippine island of Luzon and about 550 nautical miles from China's Hainan.

Washington then brokered an agreement for both sides to withdraw their craft, but only Manila complied. Beijing has been in firm control of Scarborough ever since. The Obama administration, while Vice President Biden was in charge of foreign policy, did not oppose the audacious Chinese seizure.  etc.

HUGE COVER-UP? Russian Air Force shot down an Israeli F-35 leaving Jordanian airspace that was set to launch an EMP weapon over Iran

April 22, 2024

Via State of the Nation

Editor’s Note: Highly respected international geopolitical analyst Pepe Escobar made a startling revelation today via his Telegram account which sent shockwaves throughout the Global Intelligence Community.

But let’s first acknowledge that nothing about the recent alleged counter-attack by Israel against Iran’s Isfahan Air Base makes any sense whatsoever. In point of fact, everything about all the mainstream media report smacks of a highly coordinated cover-up by all sides. The stories not only keep changing, but they simply don’t add up, except as a very sloppy whitewash of a much more destructive operation.

Well, now it appears that there’s a very good reason why all the involved parties would want to keep such a daffy attempted EMP attack by Israel concealed. There’s no question that Netanyahu’s war cabinet was set on delivering a serious blow to Iran since their penchant for revenge always demands ten times the damage they receive from any enemy. Hence, the following account of the actual thwarted Israeli “EMP operation” does make a lot of sense.

And, given how criminally insane the entire leadership of the Zionist State of Israel is, such a brazen and reckless attack is certainly expected of Tel Aviv at any time. See: WATCH! Today, the barbaric Israeli regime dropped a 900 kg bomb on totally defenseless civilians in Rafah!

N.B. What follows is the original Alt Media report detailing this quite astonishing, yet very plausible, nuclear and/or EMP attack plan by the IDF.

Attempted EMP Attack Over Iran By Israel

Posted by Pepe Escobar

Israel initially chose to respond with extreme force.

An F-35 loaded with a nuclear bomb was sent east over Jordan.

The mission: cause a high-altitude detonation over Iran that would provoke a surge in the high-capacity power lines, crippling Iran’s electric grid, as well as disabling all electronic devices.

An EMP attack.

However…

As the Israeli F-35 was leaving Jordanian airspace it was shot down by the Russian Air Force.

EXCLUSIVE

THE REAL STORY OF THE ISRAELI COUNTER RESPONSE

From a very high level intel source.

In Asia.

NOT Russia-China.

Although the strategic partnership, of course, exchanges at the highest level 24-7.

Confirmed and re-confirmed.

It will be great to know what Sy Hersh hears from his Beltway sources.

Here we go.

Israel initially chose to respond with extreme force.

An F-35 loaded with a nuclear bomb was sent east over Jordan.

The mission: cause a high-altitude detonation over Iran that would provoke a surge in the high-capacity power lines, crippling Iran's electric grid, as well as disabling all electronic devices.

An EMP attack.

However...

... As the Israeli F-35 was leaving Jordanian airspace it was shot down by the Russian Air Force.

Hence the publicised version of the Israeli counter response was such a travesty.

In the end all sides decided not to publicise the real news - to de-escalate what could well turn into WWIII.

Biden’s Crackdown on the Internet Is WORSE Than You Think | Glenn TV | Ep 343

We’re being played: The Left isn’t “saving democracy,” and the internet is NOT free. The Murthy v. Missouri Supreme Court case is just the tip of the iceberg. The pro-speech plaintiffs argue the Biden White House colluded with social media platforms to censor speech they don’t like. Speech on topics like COVID origins, masks, vaccines, lockdowns, the Hunter Biden laptop, climate change, mail-in voting, and election integrity. There is much more of this censorship in our future. Thanks to a FOIA request and eventual lawsuit brought by America First Legal, AFL was able to uncover a report by U.S. Agency for International Development that was intended for internal use only. Glenn digs into this report called the “Dis-information Primer,” which provides a disturbing insider’s view of our government’s strategies for dealing with rampant so-called “information disorder.” And instead of debunking speech it doesn’t like, the government employs a strategy calledpre-bunking.” Wait, what?! We are up against a SPRAWLING network of government agencies, think tanks, and the largest companies in the world, all collaborating in multiple ways with the same end-goal: to censor unapproved speech in media and especially online. And you can bet voices at Blaze Media will be first on the chopping block …

‘Conspiracy Theories’ Aren’t 'Theoretical' Anymore: The US Govt Happily Murders Political Opponents, Carries Out Bioweapon Attacks Upon The Population And Openly Steals Elections

- The US Govt Under Joe Biden Has Become The Laughingstock Of The Planet

By John Green and All News Pipeline April 22, 2024

The national mood in the mid-twentieth century was very different from now.

- The United States was respected around the world -- even if not necessarily liked.

- Technology was advancing faster than at any time in human history.

- Our cities were mostly orderly, safe, and clean.

- We believed there were few hardships which couldn’t be overcome with hard work.

- Opportunities seemed endless, as was our optimism.

- We were completely naïve about the danger posed by our own government.

Not everything was sunny. We had problems that needed attention. That is the nature of human existence after all. But when Ronald Reagan said, “Government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem,” we just thought he was promoting self-reliance and highlighting government inefficiency. As I said, we were naïve.

Along with that naivete, was a belief that our government would never intentionally harm us. It might be incompetent, but we didn’t think it was malicious. Theories of vast government criminal conspiracies were considered delusional. Going to the police and claiming that President John F. Kennedy was assassinated by the CIA (as Robert Kennedy Jr. is suggesting), would have gotten one labeled a “conspiracy theory” nut; and more likely would trigger a psych evaluation than a criminal investigation. That was the American worldview before Barack Obama.

Things changed in 2016 when the conspiracies stopped being secret. Government operatives decided they could work with a political party to stop an outsider from playing in their sandbox -- by any means necessary. The FBI, CIA, DNC, and MSM created the Russian collusion hoax to undermine Donald Trump’s campaign -- but he won anyway.

Four years later, the same conspirators colluded to withhold critical information from the voters which likely would have changed the outcome of the election. Seventeen percent of Biden voters claim they would have voted differently had they known about the Hunter Biden laptop. This time the plan worked, and Trump was removed from the Oval Office. But he was still a threat.

(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.)

When Trump announced his intent to run for office again, the DoJ in collusion with Democrat state and local prosecutors commenced a campaign of lawfare to scuttle Trump’s campaign. They twisted the law, and corrupted any notion of justice to indict Trump using legal theories which had never been tried before. They have identified their target, and are trashing our criminal justice system to get him -- and only him. Lavrentiy Beria would be proud.

Of course, the trials are being held in deep Blue Democrat party strongholds. Partisans in robes -- laughably calling themselves “judges” -- are ensuring that trials by Trump’s “peers” are actually trials by the Trump Derangement Syndrome-afflicted. Conviction seems inevitable.

To make sure the Trump problem is solved permanently, Democrat congressman Bennie Thompson has proposed a bill to strip Donald Trump of his Secret Service protection if he is convicted. Does anyone doubt Trump’s fate if placed in Attica or Sing Sing without his protective detail? Though the bill is unlikely to pass, it does reveal the Democrat mindset. They are perfectly willing to see a political adversary murdered -- so long as they maintain plausible deniability. But sure, Donald Trump is the real danger to our country.

Shockingly, the Democrats aren’t even trying to hide their intentions anymore. Apparently, they consider us too stupid or too powerless to stop them. That’s a rather sobering thought.

As we watch all this unfold, we know that vast government criminal conspiracies are no longer theoretical. There is nothing demented or delusional about believing our government would willingly facilitate the murder a political threat. The actions of the DoJ in conjunction with the legislation proposed by the Democrats makes that perfectly clear.

The plot to place Donald Trump at the tender mercies of a prison’s “genpop” is not the only evidence of government criminal conspiracy.

The ATF really did traffic guns to Mexican drug cartels to promote gun-control legislation. One federal agent and countless civilians were killed with those guns.

The DoJ sought to remove a duly elected President -- even to the point of the Deputy Attorney General offering to “wear a wire” to record conversations with the President (with cabinet support).

The FBI really did set up some useful idiots to advanced their domestic terrorist narrative (the Governor Gretchen Whitmer kidnapping). It was a classic entrapment scheme in which federal assets planned the crime, and hapless stooges stepped in the trap.

All this is changing our worldview and is causing us to observe our government with a new level of skepticism.

The deaths of Vince Foster, Seth Rich, and Jeffery Epstein were rather politically convenient for the Democrats. Were they something other than two random acts of violence and one suicide?

COVID was created using our tax dollars in a Chinese lab, and caused a pandemic which affected the 2020 election. Was it really an accident committed by well-intentioned, but careless scientists -- or something else? Certainly, the Democrats didn’t let that crisis go to waste. Many thousands died. Were they just the broken eggs needed to make the make the election omelet?

A Chinese spy balloon was allowed to cross our continent and collect information from our most sensitive facilities -- apparently with the blessing of the Biden administration. But we’re told that the millions of dollars flowing from China to the Biden family had nothing to do with the President’s decision to leave the reconnaissance craft unmolested.

Two whistleblowers (Gal Luft and Alexander Smirnov) have come forward with evidence of Joe Biden selling government influence to foreign nationals. Conveniently, both have been arrested by the same DoJ which is setting a death trap for President Trump.

Things have changed a lot since the mid-20th century. The children of the 21st century have a completely different worldview.

- The United States is a corrupt and impotent international laughingstock.

- We’ve become technically stunted. Replacing the Francis Scott Key bridge is expected to take three times longer than building the Golden Gate bridge almost a century ago.

- Our cities are becoming unlivable post-apocalyptic hellscapes.

- “Living the American dream” is no longer a middle-class expectation.

- We know that fear of our own government is a prudent mindset.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. doesn’t sound so crazy now that the conspiracies are no longer theoretical.

Which Major City Will Completely Collapse First – Los Angeles, Chicago Or New York City?

April 21, 2024 by Michael

In 2024, virtually all major U.S. cities have certain things in common. First of all, if you visit the downtown area of one of our major cities you are likely to see garbage, human excrement and graffiti all over the place. As you will see below, some of our core urban areas literally look like they belong in a third world country. Most of our politicians don’t seem too concerned about doing anything to clean up all the filth, and so it shouldn’t be a surprise that rat populations are absolutely exploding all over the country. In some of our largest cities, the total rat population is numbered in the millions. Meanwhile, rampant theft, out of control violence, endless migration, predatory gangs and the worst drug crisis in the entire history of our nation have combined to create a “perfect storm” of social decay that is unlike anything that any of us have ever seen before. Millions of law-abiding citizens and countless businesses have been fleeing America’s largest cities, and property values in our core urban areas have been absolutely crashing. We really are in the early stages of a full-blown societal “collapse”, and things just keep getting worse with each passing day.

In this article, I want to focus on the three largest metropolitan areas in the United States: New York, Los Angeles and Chicago.

John Williams recently took his camera with him as he walked through downtown Los Angeles, and he described what he witnessed as “hell”…

Decades of failed policies have transformed one of the greatest cities in the entire country into one of the worst.

At this point, theft has become so rampant that even the ultra-progressive politicians in California have come to the conclusion that something must be done.

So several bills that would “crack down on shoplifting” have been introduced in the state legislature

Shoplifters beware.

The California Assembly has introduced a comprehensive package of seven bills aimed at addressing the rising concerns over retail theft across the state.

One of the key initiatives is Assembly Bill 2943, jointly authored by Assemblymember Rick Chavez Zbur (D) and Speaker Robert Rivas (D). The bill targets serial retail thieves by introducing a new crime with penalties of up to three years behind bars for possession of stolen property with intent to resell. It also allows for the aggregation of similar thefts from different victims to charge grand theft, under specific criteria.

Hopefully something will get done, because right now a criminal in the state of California can “literally walk into a retail store every single day of the year and steaI $949 worth of merchandise” and never spend a single minute in jail.

Los Angeles has become a paradise for shoplifters, but many would argue that things are even worse in the Big Apple.

As I discussed a few days ago, New York City has “a $4.4 billion shoplifting economy”.

And approximately 90,000 packages are stolen in New York City every single day.

This is just one of the reasons why we have seen a mass exodus.

Countless New Yorkers have already left for greener pastures, and lots more are thinking of leaving…

About 7 million New Yorkers plan to leave the state, a new survey revealed this month.

In a new Marist poll, 37 percent of New Yorkers—roughly 7 million people—said they plan to move away. The number was slightly more concentrated among Republicans, as 46 percent said they plan to leave the state compared to just 29 percent of Democrats.

Unsurprisingly, many of those that are fleeing are heading to Florida…

For many, Florida remains one of the top places to move, but Southern states in general have been recording the biggest influx in transplants.

According to Realtor.com, Philadelphia, Miami, Atlanta, Tampa and Orlando remain some of the top locations for New Yorkers to start again.

I wouldn’t want to live in the Big Apple either.

The rat problem alone would be enough for me to move.

It just continues to escalate, and politicians are now proposing to use “rat contraceptives” to deal with “the millions of rats lurking in subway stations and empty lots”…

In New York City, the idea to distribute rat contraceptives got fresh attention in city government Thursday following the death of an escaped zoo owl, known as Flaco, who was found dead with rat poison in his system.

City Council Member Shaun Abreu proposed a city ordinance Thursday that would establish a pilot program for controlling the millions of rats lurking in subway stations and empty lots by using birth control instead of lethal chemicals. Abreu, chair of the Committee on Sanitation and Solid Waste Management, said the contraceptives also are more ethical and humane than other methods.

Unfortunately, New York City doesn’t have the worst rat problem in America.

That title actually belongs to the city of Chicago…

Chicago has once again been declared the rattiest city in the U.S. according to Orkin’s annual ranking.

Los Angeles surpassed New York on this year’s list now holding the #2 spot and bringing the Big Apple down to #3, Orkin shared.

Other notable shifts included Houston, which moved 10 spots up to #20, and Charlotte, North Carolina that rose 16 spots to #21.

Somehow, the rat problem in Chicago has gone to an entirely new level in 2024.

In fact, one local resident says that it is now the worst that she has ever seen in her entire lifetime…

A resurgence of rats has gotten out of control in Chicago’s Portage Park neighborhood, multiple residents explained Friday as they called for city leaders to take further action.

Diana Gazda, a resident of the Far Northwest Side community for seven decades, said she has never seen an infestation like it.

We never had a rat problem like this,” she stated. “I’ve been here 71 years in my house.”

In addition to being world famous for rats, the Windy City is also world famous for violence.

In Chicago, you can be gunned down at any time of the day or night.

Nobody is safe, and that is especially true for police officers…

A Chicago police officer was shot to death early Sunday in Gage Park on the Southwest Side in what sources are saying was an apparent carjacking.

Officers responded to a ShotSpotter alert about 2:55 a.m. and found Officer Luis Huesca with multiple gunshot wounds in the 3100 block of West 56th Street, a police spokesperson said in a statement.

Huesca, 30, was driving home from work, according to city officials. Huesca, who was still wearing his uniform, was taken to University of Chicago Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

So which of these cities will completely collapse first?

I think that is a very good question.

They are all headed downhill very rapidly, and they are all being run by radical leftists.

Of course the exact same things could be said about dozens of other U.S. cities.

For years, I have been warning my readers about the “cultural transformation” that has been taking place in America.

How we raise our kids really matters.

We have been failing them for decades, and now the consequences can be very clearly seen in the streets of our major cities.

A horrific societal collapse is upon us, and yet this nation continues to refuse to change direction.

Multiple rockets have been fired from Iraq towards U.S. military base in Syria

At least five rockets were launched from Iraq’s town of Zummar towards a U.S. military base in northeastern Syria on Sunday; two Iraqi security sources told Reuters.

The attack against U.S. forces is the first since early February, when Iranian-backed groups in Iraq stopped their attacks against U.S. troops.

The attack comes one day after Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed Shia al-Sudani returned from a visit to the United States and met with President Joe Biden at the White House.

Two security sources and a senior army officer said a rocket launcher fixed on the back of a small truck had been parked in Zummar border town with Syria.

The military official said the truck caught fire with an explosion from unfired rockets at the same time as warplanes were in the sky.

“We can’t confirm that U.S. warplanes bombed the truck unless we investigate it,” said a military official on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the incident.

Columbia rabbi warns Jewish students to go home, don’t come back to campus because of ‘extreme antisemitism’

By Social Links for Doree Lewak and Social Links for Isabel Keane

Published April 21, 2024 Updated April 21, 2024, 12:47 p.m. ET

A prominent rabbi at Columbia University took the drastic step Sunday of warning Jewish students to go home and not return to campus because of “extreme antisemitism” at the Ivy League school.

The dire directive followed yet another night of virulent anti-Israel protests on campus — which included one protester holding up a sign suggesting that students waving Israeli flags should be the next target of Hamas terrorists.”

The events of the last few days, especially last night, have made it clear that Columbia University’s Public Safety and the NYPD cannot guarantee Jewish students’ safety in the face of extreme antisemitism and anarchy,” Rabbi Elie Buechler told students Sunday morning over WhatsApp.

“It deeply pains me to say that I would strongly recommend you return home as soon as possible and remain home until the reality in and around campus has dramatically improved.

“It is not our job as Jews to ensure our own safety on campus,” he said. “No one should have to endure this level of hatred, let alone at school.”

Jewish students who showed up on campus Saturday night to protest antisemitism at the prestigious university carried Israeli flags and sang “One Day,” a song of peace by reggae singer and rapper Matisayhu — only to be promptly attacked by hate speech and threatened with calls to violence, witnesses told The Post.

People were yelling at Hamas to strike Tel Aviv,” a sophomore at Barnard, a college at Columbia, told The Post, recalling how the previous night, a keffiyeh-clad student penetrated the Jewish students’ rally with a sign reading “Al Kassam’s [Hamas’s military wing’s] next target.”

The student’s sign, which was captured on video posted to X, included an arrow pointing at the Jewish students peacefully protesting.

What to know about the antisemitism controversy at Columbia University:

Columbia University president Minouche Shafik was accused of “gross negligence” while testifying before the House Education and Workforce Committee about antisemitic incidents at the school and pro-Palestinian indoctrination. Shafik defended the school’s response after Oct. 7, but refused to tell lawmakers at the hearing if the phrase “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free” is antisemitic.

A report from the Ivy League school’s Task Force on Antisemitism found “repeated violations by student groups” at Columbia after the Oct. 7 Hamas terror attacks in Israel.

Ahead of the hearing, Jewish students told The Post that they have been targeted and witnessed antisemitism at the Morningside Heights campus. The Columbia University Jewish Alumni Association told The Post that the college’s administrators must “do their job” in reining in unauthorized student protests.

Shortly after the Oct. 7 attacks, more than 100 Columbia professors signed a letter defending students who support the “military action” by Hamas.

In February, an antisemitic poster depicting Israel as a skunk appeared on campus — which experts liken to a propaganda poster used by the Nazis in World War II.

An unsanctioned “Resistance 101” event was held on campus in March by a Palestinian activist with alleged ties to a group labeled a terror organization by the US. Four students who participated were later suspended by Columbia.

While the congressional hearing was in progress, Columbia students erected 60 tents on campus to demand that the university divest from Israel. One of the leaders of the protests, Ilhan Omar’s daughter, Isra Hirsi, was suspended from Barnard College — a women’s college affiliated with Columbia.

Shocking video footage captured a protester near the university declare, “We’re all Hamas” and “Long live Hamas” Wednesday. Another protester was arrested Wednesday night for repeatedly hitting and scratching an NYPD cop, according to law enforcement officials.

On Thursday, more than 100 other protesters were arrested after Shafik announced the campus’s closure.

That’s a call to violence. It’s totally out of control. It’s total anarchy,” the student said, adding that Jewish students’ right to “peacefully protest” had been taken away.

The mother of another Barnard sophomore bashed the university for losing control.

Columbia is out of control. This is untenable. People breaking into campus, kids calling public safety that refused to intervene. … Signs up saying ‘Hamas should kill you next’ and pointing to Jewish kids with Israeli flags who were singing,” the mom said.

Her daughter agreed that the protests have spiraled out of control.

We all want to be here and get a good education, and it’s not fair that this is impeding on that,” she said.

I don’t think it’s safe to be on campus,” the student said. “We’re not going to go anywhere — we’re not running away — but you can’t be a student there now. They’re protesting all day and all night. I hear it at night when I’m trying to sleep.

You can barely sleep, barely get to class. It’s definitely getting in the way of being a student,” she added.

While some students seemed to be heeding Rabbi Buechler’s advice, others were determined to stay on campus, with one Jewish student saying he plans to remain even after being “chased up the block” a few days ago by a pro-Palestine mob.

It’s honestly horrifying now. To walk around Columbia’s campus right now is to walk through a completely hostile environment,” the senior, Avi Weinberg, 25, told The Post on Sunday.

Weinberg slammed Columbia’s administration for losing its “backbone” and failing to do more to protect students.

He added that he doesn’t plan to follow the rabbi’s advice or take classes over Zoom just because “a group of lunatics decided to take over campus.

We cannot go back to living in a world … where Jewish students can’t go to school,” Weinberg said.

Walking through campus right now as a Jewish student – Zionist or notif you’re not in agreement with their ideology, you’re not safe,” he said of the anti-Israel protesters. “You can’t walk on a lawn on a campus that’s open to all students. You cannot walk on that lawn – an entire team of students co-opted this lawn and [interrogate you].”

House GOP Conference Chairwoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY), who grilled Columbia’s president this week in a congressional hearing on the university’s response to antisemitism, agreed Sunday that things “clearly lost control” on campus.

Over the past few months and especially in the last 24 hours, Columbia’s leadership has clearly close control of its campus putting Jewish students’ safety at risk. It is crystal clear that Columbia University — previously a beacon of academic excellence founded by Alexander Hamiltonneeds new leadership,” she said in a statement.

President [Minouche] Shafik must immediately resign. And the Columbia Board must appoint a President who will protect Jewish students and enforce school policies.”

On Sunday, Columbia’s and Barnard’s chapters of the Jewish community organization Hillel sent out a message ensuring they will remain open and available for students who may need a quiet place to study or be with friends.

Columbia University and the City of New York must do more to protect students. We call on the University Administration to act immediately in restoring calm to campus,” wrote Brian Cohen, the executive director of the Kraft Center for Jewish Student Life. “The City must ensure that students can walk up and down Broadway and Amsterdam without fear of harassment.”

NY Home Depot hires guards, dogs to keep parking lot safe from thieves, aggressive migrants

By Social Links for Georgia Worrell and Social Links for Tina Moore

Published April 21, 2024, 6:00 a.m. ET

A New York Home Depot has deployed a guard dog — and other stores may be close behind — to protect shoppers from aggressive migrants and thieves flooding their parking lots, The Post has learned.

Two men wearing MSA Security caps and bulletproof vests with a German Shepherd in tow patrolled the Home Depot in New Rochelle on Tuesday.

It’s more about omnipresence,” one guard said, explaining that the company was contracted a few weeks ago. “It’s not like we let them go bite anyone or anything.”

The guard said the store hired them for a number of reasons.

It’s not just because of [migrants], but because of a myriad of other things too, like people breaking into cars, that kind of stuff,” he said.

The guarded New Rochelle lot was quiet and no migrants loitered there when The Post visited this week, however, seven miles away in Throggs Neck, The Bronx, at least 30 male migrants hovered at the doors of Home Depot.

Some were day laborers simply trying to “shape” for work with local contractors.

But many others aggressively confronted shoppers, trying to sell them phony Apple Airpods or soliciting tips for lifting items from shopping carts into carseven when uninvited.

You come out and you’re a woman by yourself, they literally leech onto your wagon, and you’re like ‘No, I don’t need any help,'” one worker said. “And when they’re following you to your car, it’s unnerving.”

She said a female supervisor saw one of the men washing his privates with a water bottle in the lot, and that several women have called customer service to complain that migrants robbed them of purses or phones.

She’s seen the number of grifters in the lot swell as the migrant population in New York City explodes.

I came to work one day and there had to be 100 guys out here,” she said. “And I’m like, ‘Oh, my God!'”

A regular customer at the store, who asked to be identified only as Cheryl, said she and her husband had a frightening encounter last month.

A man “practically runs over and he goes to point like, ‘Can I take the stuff,’ and my husband said ‘No, thank you,'” she recalled, noting that they only had a couple of boxes and a paint scraper.

“He’s still keeps following, like on top of us,” she said. “I said ‘No, thank you.'”

When her husband turned around to open the car door, the man “put his hand” on one of the boxes in their cart. .My husband said ‘Don’t touch anything.'”

But the man didn’t stop.

“So I held up my pepper spray and I yelled ‘He said don’t touch,'” she recalled.

“And all of a sudden he goes ‘Oh, you don’t have to yell at me.’ . . . but he started looking like he was getting angry. So we just hurried up and jumped in the car.”

She called Home Depot’s Atlanta headquarters to complain but got “the brush off,” she said. A regional manager then told her they were working on bringing security dogs to two Bronx stores.

Customers frequently complain about the crush of migrants, said LaurieAnn Masciocco, who works in the store’s customer service department.

It’s come to the point where they’re invading personal space, touching people’s belongings, just harassing,” she said. “I get it, you’re trying to make a buck. But when it becomes aggressive and harassing there’s a major issue.”

Her husband went four miles away to the Pelham Gardens location in The Bronx earlier this month and he got mobbed there too, she said.

One 52-year-old Mexican national, Jimeno, who has lived in The Bronx since arriving in the United States 20 years ago, was at the Throggs Neck store seeking legitimate work from contractors.

“There are a lot of people who have been coming here for a lot of years . . . asking people for jobs in construction and if they need help with projects,” he told The Post in Spanish. “We come here to find work.”

He said the recent arrivals who aggressively solicit for tips have made it harder for the day laborers to find work.

“This affects us a lot, because now people don’t want to communicate with us because they’re scared,” he said. “They confuse us with them.”

One migrant at the Throggs Neck location, who said he was from Senegal, told The Post he makes about $300 a day, charging $10 every time he helps a customer push their cart or move their purchases into their vehicle.

Home Depot corporate spokeswoman Margaret Smith said the company prohibits loitering and solicitation at its stores and regularly works with law enforcement. She would not say if the Bronx stores will add security, including dogs.

“While we can’t go into specifics about our security measures,” she said, “it’s not unusual for us to use third-party security at various stores across the country.”

Global Cataclysms

By Hal Lindsey

The nations of planet earth are presently engaged in a deadly game of brinksmanship. It’s happening on every continent.

In Europe, Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine threatens to engulf the region. And European wars have a tendency to become world wars. Finland and Sweden, two previously neutral countries, recently joined NATO. Sweden had been neutral since the early 1800s. It resisted taking sides in World Wars I and II, as well as the Cold War. But not anymore. Sweden finally joined NATO this year, while its neighbor Finland joined in 2023.

What happened to Finland and Sweden’s traditional stance of neutrality? Putin happened. The communist leaders of Soviet Russia were not enough to get them into NATO, but Vladimir Putin’s war on Ukraine scared everyone in Europe. It awakened memories of Adolf Hitler, of global war, and of holocaust.

Nations across the globe feel vulnerable and are looking for safety. They are arming as never before. China’s new high-tech weapons, its unprecedented military buildup, and its aggressions in the South China Sea and Taiwan have also scared the nations. Reuters reported a year and a half ago that between then and 2027, “Japan will undertake its biggest arms buildup since World War Two in a race to deter Beijing from war in East Asia.”

Direct acts of violence resulting from the Israel-Hamas war have already touched nations everywhere. With Iran’s lock grip on the Shiite Muslim world, it has stirred up nation after nation into acts of war against Israel and anyone seen as Israel’s allies. The Middle East has been a powder keg for a long time, but now it is a powder keg in a lightning storm.

These and a host of other things going on today make a perfect setup for events that the Bible says will take place during seven years of tribulation. I believe those years are very close. But they are not imminent. The global conflagrations described in Revelation will not take place until after the Rapture — that is until after God has evacuated His people from the planet.

Some ask what is holding things up. Why doesn’t God just get on with it? 2 Peter 3:9 answers. “The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.”

God’s “slowness” is a result of His mercy. But He will not delay forever. In the Old Testament, Israel came under God’s judgement many times. Over and over, they failed to live up to the bargain they made with God. They sinned. The rejected Him, His messengers, and His word. But the thing that often triggered His actual judgements was harm to children. For instance, when they engaged in child sacrifice to idols.

Children are being abused on an institutional level today, and it’s happening all over the world. Millions are being slain in the womb. If they survive those early days, psychological tricks are played on them in their classrooms and in their entertainments — tricks designed to inoculate them against receiving the Gospel and tricks made to confuse them and make them miserable. Could these things trigger the time of judgement on the earth? Yes.

In the meantime, every day is an act of God’s mercy and kindness, giving people time and space to come to Him, and allowing those of us who know Him to preach the Gospel to the whole world. Jesus said in John 9:4 (NASB), “We must work the works of Him who sent Me, as long as it is day; night is coming, when no man can work.”

India delivers first BrahMos cruise missiles to Philippines

News Maritime Security

By Dylan Malyasov Apr 20, 2024

India delivered the first batch of BrahMos cruise missiles to the Philippines on April 19.

This delivery comes two years after the signing of a $375 million deal between the two nations.

The export of ground launcher systems for the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile system, along with the missiles themselves, commenced last month. This historic event marks the first time India has exported the BrahMos missile to a foreign country.

Amidst escalating tensions in the South China Sea, the delivery of BrahMos missile systems to the Philippines holds strategic significance. The Philippines intends to deploy the three batteries of the BrahMos missile system in their coastal areas to enhance their defense capabilities and counter potential Chinese threats in the region.

Developed as a joint venture between the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) of India and Russia’s NPO Mashinostroyeniya, the BrahMos missile is renowned for its advanced capabilities. It operates on a two-stage propulsion system, comprising a solid propellant booster engine for initial acceleration and a liquid ramjet engine for sustained supersonic cruise.

One of the key features of the BrahMos missile is its low radar signature, providing it with stealth capabilities. With a cruising altitude of up to 15 kilometers and the ability to descend to as low as 10 meters during the terminal phase, the BrahMos is highly versatile and effective in engaging targets with precision.

U.K.’s Only Munitions Factory Explodes, Just Days After U.S. Army Ammunition Factory Catches Fires in Scranton, PA

by Anthony Scott Apr. 20, 2024 5:20 pm

The United Kingdom’s lone munitions filing factory exploded on Wednesday, just two days after a fire erupted at the Scranton Army Ammunition Plant in Scranton, Pennsylvania.

As The Gateway Pundit previously reported on April 15th, the Scranton Army Ammunition Plant (SCAAP), the United States’ primary producer of 155mm artillery shell bodies, caught fire.

Just two days later, on April 17th, a section of the United Kingdom’s lone munition factory exploded after a single shell went off inside the factory.

The explosion occurred at the BAE Systems munitions factory in Glascoed, Wales.

BAE Systems is the biggest defense contractor in Europe and the 7th largest in the world.

The cause of the explosion at the munition factory is currently being investigated.

Per The Daily Mail:

Locals living close to a BAE Systems weapons plant rocked by an explosion earlier today say the blast ‘felt like an earthquake’ as a shell went off.

The blast took place at the BAE Systems munitions factory in Glascoed, Monmouthshire shortly before 10.50am.

MailOnline understands the explosion relates to a single shell going off at the munitions filling factory, run by BAE, Europe’s biggest military contractor.

Emergency services were deployed to the site, which is spread across a large field close to the south-eastern village; locals say the blast ‘wasn’t loud, but felt like an earthquake’.

BAE Systems has promised a full investigation into the incident at the factory, which is the UK’s last remaining munitions filling factory.

The fire erupted at the Scranton Army Ammunition Plant is also under investigation.

NATO Officers and Soldiers Began To FLEE From The Western Armies En MASSE┃Russians Captured KRASNOYE

*****************************************************

Meanwhile, very serious problems began to be observed in the North Atlantic alliance, as a result of which the NATO leadership flew into an uncontrollable panic. Against this background, the European Union is seriously thinking in decreeing universal compulsory military service. In order to somehow remedy the situation with the shortage of manpower in the regular army, the Danish government even proposed to recruit women to somehow compensate for the shortage of soldiers and officers in the ranks of the armed forces..................

Defense Sector Panicking: Iran Missiles Defeated "Most Advanced, Integrated, ABM Defensive Systems"

Hal Turner World 16 April 2024 Hits: 35121

By now, most of the world knows that Iran launched a multi-faceted attack against Israel about 48 hours ago. The "fallout" from that attack is now becoming frighteningly clear, and it has Defense Experts TERRIFIED.

As the attack was in-progress, Iran undertook a very unusual, and apparently foolish, series of steps. They announced they had launched drones and then cruise missiles against Israel. They announced this despite the fact the drones and missiles still had 57 more minutes to travel before reaching their targets!

Expert Observers thought it very strange - and foolish - that an attacker would give out such information while the very weapons they launched had not yet arrived. It gave Israel and its allies time to go after those weapons, which they did.

Well . . . it turns out this was not strange or foolish - it was planned. Iran launched the old dregs of their arsenal! First generation drones. First generation cruise missiles. What they launched was the junk they had laying around for years! Slow moving, loud, junk. Iran WANTED Israeli defenses to focus on that old junk, and not on what they would fire next: Ballistic Missiles.

Many of the drones simply fell out of the sky from malfunctions. Others were easily intercepted by fighter jets from Israel, the US, and the UK, with some help from French naval assets in the Mediterranean Sea.

There was a much-heralded "99% interception success rate" broadcast around the world for all to hear. Turns out, there's a problem. A MAJOR problem: Iran's Ballistic Missiles. A few of them, got through.

Almost no one noticed this "problem" because there has been no media coverage of it, until this article.

The hint there was a BIG problem, came today. US Media reported:

"U.S. National Security Advisor, Jake Sullivan stated today that the Department of Defense alongside U.S. Central Command is continuing to Increase the Readiness and Integration of Air Defenses and Early Warning Systems in the Middle East, in order to Erode the Effectiveness of Iran’s Missile and Drone Capabilities."

When I read that, I thought to myself "Who asked you?" Why say something like that? Unless . . . . unless. . . . there's a big problem. So I started looking, and asking questions. Here's what I found:

The missiles that hit the two bases in the Negev region didn't just "get through." They did so against the most-heavily-defended area in the world, protected with the most advanced, integrated, Anti-Ballistic-Missile (ABM) systems known to exist in the West.

Two Israeli Bases in the Negev region and one Intelligence Base in the far north of Israel on Mount Hermon, got hit by Iranian missiles.

In the north, the secret intelligence base in the north of the occupied Golan Heights located in Jabal al-Sheikh (Mount Hermon), got hit and seriously damaged.

In the south, the Israeli Nevatim and Ramon Bases got hit and THIS is where the problem reared its ugly head.

According to secret intelligence information, at the Nevatim Air Base in the Negev Desert, Hangar to Israel's F-35 Stealth aircraft and Mossad Spy aircraft, at least Forty-four (44) Mossad personnel were killed.

But for the Defense sector, that pales in comparison to what took place for Iran to achieve that.

Nevatim was defended by the world’s most advanced integrated anti-missile defense shield which incorporated Arrow 2, David’s Sling, THAAD, and Patriot 3 with the AN/TPY-2 X-band surveillance and targeting radar. This system was designed to exclusively defend against the Iranian medium-range ballistic missile threat.

Below is an actual photo of the actual radar deployed to protect those bases. Here is what it looks like:

Advanced US Radar Negev Desert Israel

And yet . . . 5 to 7 missiles hit Nevatim. The Israelis have acknowledged 2 runways and three warehouse structures hit.

Not a knockout blow — it wasn’t intended as such.

But any Battle Damage Assessment (BDA) expert would note that the point of impact was center mass, a clear indication of precision guidance.

5-7 missiles hit the world’s most heavily defended location, defeating an integrated ABM defense that was custom built to defeat the very missiles it failed to shoot down.

THAT has some people in the Defense sector, literally panicked. You see, if 5-7 missiles got through, then it is a given that others can get through. And simple math reveals that had Iran fired thirty (30) missiles at that base, the base would no longer exist.

The Iranians know this now. They __know__ Israeli "missile defenses" cannot stop their medium range ballistic missiles with any great reliability.

While Jordan fired US PATRIOT missiles to down a few Iranian missiles, Jordan's PATRIOTS are now completely depleted. They have NONE left.

Fighter jets did down a few additional Iranian missiles, but not many.

As such, Israel is not only vulnerable, there is no "filler" technology that can be quickly inserted into the advanced, integrated system, to make things better for Israel. Put simply, right now, Israel is factually defenseless from any large salvos of these missiles.

Think about that for a moment.

The most advanced, integrated air defense radar system in the world, its mission is to detect Iranian missile launches, and pass targeting data to Israeli Arrow, David’s Sling, and U.S. THAAD ABM batteries deployed to protect sensitive Israeli sites, including Dimona and the Nevatim and Ramon air bases.

Iranian missiles struck both Nevatim and Ramon air bases.

The best surveillance radar in the world, working in concert with the most sophisticated anti-missile defenses in the world, were impotent in the face of the Iranian attack.

What has galled Israel is not the attack itself, it was that the most advanced missile defense systems in the world couldn't stop the very missiles they were built to stop!

Iran has now achieved a "strategic deterrence" of Israel. Israel now knows Iran will hit them, but can also hit them at-will with missiles Israel cannot stop.

Even worse, now that the "junk" is gone from Iran's inventory, they can bring out the Second and third generation versions of their drones and missiles. Hezbollah did that TODAY. Hezbollah utilized almost silent, very-much-faster, jet powered drones to hit Israel in the north today.

People on the ground did not hear the drones until they were dive bombing the targets!

If Iran starts using these, the speed alone will cut down flight time, by half or more, making it even harder to intercept such drones if launched.

What the second or third generation cruise missiles might be able to do, none of us know yet.

We've now seen what Iran's Ballistic Missiles can do - nasty!

The Iran response to the Israel attack upon the Iranian Embassy in Syria, has opened a chasm in the Middle East balance of power. The world changed that day. Not in ways the general public knew - until now.

Republican Speaker of the House Flushes US Constitution Down the Toilet

April 18, 2024

Guest Post by Paul Craig Roberts

As I predicted on April 11, the police state got the Republicans to reconsider and to pass their warrantless spying and home entry. The Republican Speaker of the House Mike Johnson cast the deciding vote that nixed the warrant requirement.

This tells us all we need to know about Republicans. They are part of the problem.

Super-Patriots will say “we have to do this to protect ourselves from terrorists.They don’t understand that without the Constitution we have no protection.

Edward Snowden reports that the situation is even more serious than I thought. A section of the FISA Act is being enlarged to require every company and person that provides any internet-related service to assist NSA surveillance.

NSA “Just Days Away From Taking Over The Internet” Warns Ed Snowden

This bill represents one of the most dramatic and terrifying expansions of government surveillance authority in history.”

Indonesia tsunami alert after 'Ring of Fire' volcano erupts several times - with 11,000 evacuated

Indonesian authorities issued a tsunami alert Wednesday after eruptions at Ruang Mountain sent ash thousands of feet high. Officials ordered more than 11,000 people to leave the area.

Indonesian authorities have sounded the tsunami alarm after a series of major eruptions at Ruang mountain, with ash clouds reaching thousands of feet into the sky. Over 11,000 locals have been instructed to evacuate the danger zone.

The volcano, situated on Sulawesi island's northern flank, has experienced no less than five significant eruptions within the last day, as reported by Indonesia's Center for Volcanology and Geological Disaster Mitigation. The alert level for the volcano has been escalated to the maximum.

By Wednesday morning, at least 800 people had already vacated the vicinity.

Home to 270 million individuals, Indonesia's vast archipelago boasts 120 active volcanoes, largely due to its position on the "Ring of Fire," a Pacific Ocean region known for frequent earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.

Officials are advising both tourists and residents to maintain a distance of at least 6 kilometers (about 3.7 miles) from the 725-meter-tall (2,378-foot) Ruang volcano.

There is growing concern among authorities that a segment of the volcano might tumble into the ocean, potentially triggering a tsunami similar to the catastrophic event following the 1871 eruption.

According to Indonesia's National Disaster Mitigation Agency, evacuees will be relocated to Manado, the closest city on Sulawesi island, which is six hours away by boat.

Back in 2018, the eruption of Indonesia's Anak Krakatau volcano triggered a tsunami along the coasts of Sumatra and Java when parts of the mountain collapsed into the ocean, resulting in the tragic loss of 430 lives.

As Americans Struggle Just To Survive, Illegals Invaders Being Handed The Keys To The Kingdom - Free Food, Medical, Apartments, Prepaid Debit Cards, And Stealing Homes AKA Squatting

By Susan Duclos - All News Pipeline April 17, 2024

It is bad enough that Joe Biden openly encouraged a full-scale invasion of America by literally telling telling foreigners to "surge to the border," when he was just a candidate for president, but once his regime took control they facilitated said "surge."

I would in fact make sure that there is, that we immediately surge to the border — all those people are seeking asylum. They deserve to be heard,” Biden said. “That’s who we are. We’re a nation that says, ‘If you want to flee and you’re fleeing oppression, you should come.'”

For those that doubt Biden said that, we have video.

Millions of illegals have been released into the U.S. since Biden began occupying the White House, and we have written about the increase of Chinese military-aged men, along with a significant number of people on the terrorist watchlist being caught, leaving us to wonder how many of those terrorists came through without being detained.

So, with those reminders out of the way, and with more illegals being allowed to cross every single day, we see more evidence that illegal aliens, people who committed a crime as their first act in the U.S., simply by crossing the border anywhere but at the legal points of entries, are being handed the keys to the kingdom, while American citizens are struggling just to survive.

Starting with the most recent slap in the face to American citizens, we see that Democrat-controlled Denver, Colorado, just cut $8 million from the police departmentas part of another $45 million to help deal with the "skyrocketing" illegal alien problem.

A Democrat-controlled city announced $45 million in funding for programs to help deal with the skyrocketing number of migrant arrivals it is facing, resulting in over $8 million in budget cuts for the police department.

Denver Mayor Mike Johnston announced last week a package of $45.9 million to fully fund programs for "newcomers" for 2024 and avoid worst-case scenarios projected by the city. That’s in addition to $44 million in spending already secured for the program through previous budget moves.

The latest official records about crime in Denver are for 2022, which shows the crime rate at 2.8 times greater than the U.S. average. It was higher than in 98.8% U.S. cities. The 2022 Denver crime rate rose by 11% compared to 2021.(Source)

Since the Biden regime's open border policies, illegal aliens in Denver has increased, and with that increase, crime has increased.

With a complete lack of logic and common sense, an increase of both crime and illegals, somehow justifies an $8 million budget cut from the very people out there fighting said crime.

In what alternative universe does that make sense?

In the meantime, Denver is clearing out another homeless encampment, without providing any shelter for them, as Democrat Mayor Mike Johnston had promised.

Why? I am so glad you asked.

What they're saying: "This is not what we want to be doing," Cole Chandler, the mayor's senior adviser for homelessness, tells us. But he says the city didn't have enough vacant rooms at its eight sheltering sites to accommodate the more than 130 people living in the encampment.

The reason there is no room at the shelters, is because they are full of illegal immigrants!!!

According to the Associated Press "Denver’s new program will place asylum seekers in apartments for up to six months, provide job and skill training, opportunities to get certifications and unpaid work experience, food assistance and help with asylum applications."

Moving along....

ILLEGALS STEALING HOMES AKA SQUATTING......

Many were horrified in mid-March after seeing images of a woman, a homeowner, put into handcuffs by police, for attempting to remove "squatters." Squatters are people that "squat" in other peoples' homes.

Fed-up homeowner arrested after tense standoff with squatters ‘stealing’ $1M house she inherited from parents

A New York City property owner recently ended up in handcuffs following a fiery standoff with alleged squatters who she has been trying to boot from her family’s home, tense footage shows.

Adele Andaloro, 47, was nabbed after changing the locks last month on the $1 million home in Flushing, Queens, that she says she inherited from her parents when they died, ABC’s Eyewitness News reported.

In New York City, a person can claim “squatter’s rights” after just 30 days of living at a property.

Now, if someone is illegally in your home, and illegal aliens are doing this with increased frequency, one should be able to shoot them on sight. One should be able to protect their homes, right?

According to a recent Newsweek article, homeowners are the ones being warned to not take "lethal" action, because the homeowner, not the illegal that is illegally trespassing, with be charged. and if lethal force is used, the homeowner can be charged with murder.

Of course that depends on whether it is a state run by Democrats or one run by Republicans, as Texas Governor Greg Abbott says "The Texas Castle Doctrine empowers Texans to use force to defend themselves & their property."

Just one more reason why conservatives, who believe in property rights, should be living in states run by Republicans that also believe in property rights.

Leave Democrats that vote for politicians that allow the theft of ones home, to the states that favors squatters over American homeowners.

AMERICANS STRUGGLE, ILLEGALS HANDED KEYS TO THE KINGDOM....

In New York, aside from the benefits illegals get from the federal government, state officials have started handing out prepaid debit cards to illegal aliens.

We at ANP have reported extensively on how the price of food, and other items, is causing Americans to struggle to eat and pay their bills, yet illegals just have to cross the border, and make their way to a state that offers them freebies, and they are eating and surviving with less of a struggle than Americans born and bred in the good ole U.S of A.

This is a $150 billion a year problem, and that is a conservative estimate.

The FAIR study, released in March last year, documented the financial toll of illegal immigration on the U.S., taking into account factors like emergency medical care, incarcerating illegal aliens in local jails, and federal budgets that pay out billions in welfare every year, pegging the net annual cost at $150.7 billion.

More:

To contextualize the number, the $150.7 billion spent on illegal immigration last year is more than the total gross domestic product (GDP) of Mississippi ($146.7 billion in 2023), New Mexico ($131.5 billion), Idaho ($119.8 billion), and is more than the GDP's Wyoming and Vermont combined, at $50.74 billion and $43.38 billion, respectively.

Just imagine how much easier it would be on American citizens, if they could keep that $150 billion in their own pockets.

Powerful 6.3-magnitude earthquake strikes off Japan four months after devastating tremors left at least 245 dead

A 6.3-magnitude earthquake struck off southwestern Japan late on Wednesday

The country is still reeling from a devastating 7.6-magnitude quake on January 1

By James Reynolds

Published: 11:49 EDT, 17 April 2024 | Updated: 14:48 EDT, 17 April 2024

A 6.3-magnitude earthquake struck off southwestern Japan late Wednesday the US Geological Survey has said, without detailing the extent of damage.

The epicentre was pinpointed to a channel between the islands of Kyushu and Shikoku, about 11 miles west of Uwajima, at a depth of about 25 kilometres.

Some water pipes burst, but no major damage has been reported, local media said.

'In areas the jolt was strong, please don't approach any dangerous areas. There is no risk of tsunami caused by this earthquake,' the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) assured on social media platform X.

The powerful quake came four months after Japan was rocked by a devastating 7.6 magnitude event on New Year's Day, followed by as many as 1,200 aftershocks and linked to 245 deaths.

Japan's Nuclear Regulation Authority said the Ikata nuclear power plant in the area was operating as normal in the wake of the April 17 quake.

'No abnormalities have been detected at the Ikata power plant... and the operation is continuing,' it said.

Government spokesman Yoshimasa Hayashi confirmed that there were no tsunami warnings or abnormalities at any power plants and that authorities were investigating what other damage may have occurred.

'We will do everything we can to respond,' Hayashi said.

He urged the public to be vigilant for aftershocks.

'I was about to go to bed when I felt the rumbling and knew a quake was coming. Then I felt the kind of jolt that I've never experienced in my life, and it kept shaking for 10 or 20 seconds,' a fisherman from the Ehime region told broadcaster NHK.

'I was a bit panicky,' he said, adding that some small objects fell over in his house, although there was no major damage.

Sitting on top of four major tectonic plates along the western edge of the Pacific 'Ring of Fire', Japan is one of the world's most tectonically active countries.

The archipelago, home to around 125 million people, experiences around 1,500 jolts every year.

The vast majority are mild, and even larger quakes usually cause little damage.

Japan's biggest quake on record was a massive 9.0-magnitude undersea jolt in March 2011 off its northeast coast, which triggered a tsunami that left around 18,500 people dead or missing.

The 2011 catastrophe also sent three reactors into meltdown at the Fukushima nuclear plant, causing Japan's worst post-war disaster and the most serious nuclear accident since Chernobyl.

Despite stricter building guidelines, many structures, particularly outside major cities, are old and vulnerable.

This was brought home in the 7.5-magnitude quake on January 1 this year that hit Noto Peninsula and killed more than 230 people, many of them when older buildings collapsed.

On April 3, a 7.4-magnitude struck Taiwan, killing 16 people and leaving more than 1,100 people injured, with strict building codes and widespread disaster readiness credited with averting a bigger catastrophe.

New NASA Mars Crew Has a Muslim, No White People

To reach out to the Muslim world… to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science, math, and engineering.”

April 17, 2024 by Daniel Greenfield 75 Comments

There’s the Right Stuff (pictured above) and the Woke Stuff. NASA no longer has the right stuff, so all it’s got is the DEI stuff.

Remember this?

In July 2010, NASA chief Charles Bolden, an Obama appointee, told Al Jazeera that his boss had given him three prioritiesnone of them involving space exploration. The foremost priority for the agency once tasked with sending a man to the moon was “to reach out to the Muslim world… to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science, math, and engineering.”

How many of you remember Obama’s “Muslim List”?

The Muslim list included two alternative candidates for NASA administrator. One of them, Dr. Charles Elachi of JPL was dismissed as “possibly Christian.” Indeed Elachi, who grew up admiring John Wayne and believes that American success is possible because it isn’t “held back by the long-standing, ingrained systems and beliefs found in the Middle East” would have been a rather poor fit.

The other name on the list however is Firouz Naderi, an Iranian board member of the Public Affairs Alliance of Iranian Americans which advocated in support of the Iran nuke sellout.

While Trump threw out some of this stuff, under Biden NASA is fully woke and going where no one has gone before or ever wanted to go before.

Victor Glover, the black mission pilot, who had been working on Senator John McCain’s staff when he was selected as a NASA astronaut candidate, is preparing for his mission by listening to Gil Scott-Heron’s racist rant ‘Whitey on the Moon’ “twice a week on the way to work.”

NASA has a team that will update everything for the lunatic’s “current genders, names and pronouns” (which may or may not change on a biweekly basis) and then deploy a “workplace gender transition plan” that is only a little less complicated than the original moon landings.

“When I first came out, I did not come out as nonbinary at work. I wasn’t sure that people would accept that, so I came out as transmasculine and am only recently being completely authentic about it, like, ‘Actually, I’m nonbinary, and my pronouns are they/them,’” Mars “research scientist” Silas J. Ralston explains in a special NASA feature.

Now the four-person crew for the “virtual” mission to Mars has been unveiled and they carefully screened out the white people.

There is a Muslim crewmember though.

NASA has selected a new crew of four volunteers to participate in a simulated mission to Mars within a habitat at the agency’s Johnson Space Center in Houston.

Jason Lee, Stephanie Navarro, Shareef Al Romaithi, and Piyumi Wijesekara will step into the agency’s Human Exploration Research Analog, or HERA, on Friday, May 10. Once inside, the team will live and work like astronauts for 45 days.

Or woke cosmonauts anyway. During this time they’ll accuse each other of hate speech and microaggression.

But who actually needs to go to Mars when we can explore new dimensions of diversity right here?

Just How Seriously is the Fed Losing the Fight against Inflation's Inferno?

It's a LOT hotter than the media told you in their cover stories!

David Haggith  Apr 17, 2024  ∙ Paid

On Saturday, Zero Hedge published an article by Jeffrey Tucker that laid out just how far off the media has been in all of its soothing spin that attempts to cool your perception of inflation:

For months and even years, the mainstream news has sought to spin terrible inflation news. It’s not so bad, it’s just transitional, it’s getting better, it’s not really a problem, and all your gloom about the value of the dollar is in your head. Truly, in the past fortnight, we have been inundated with articles suggesting that the public is dumb as rocks for thinking that inflation is still a problem.

And then all of a sudden months of denial left them in a place where, BOOM! it was bad overnight. Still, some have tried their best to splash a little quenching water on these flames, but it’s not working anymore. Others threw in the towel on the subterfuge and finally called the heat as it is:

It was so bad that not even the two most influential venues could deny it. The New York Times reported, “Inflation Stronger Than Expected.” The Wall Street Journal reported, “Hot Inflation Report Weakens Case for Fed’s June Rate Cut.” The accompanying editorial is even better: “The Inflation Thief Rises Again.”

Now that some venues, trusted beyond their merits, have stopped parroting the Fed’s new “it’s just a bump in the road” transitory inflation narrative, even the Fed has had to start admitting—in what appears to be getting close to unanimous consent—that it is losing the inflation fight so far this year. Today Papa Powell finally said the fight is not going well, allowing that there has been “a lack of further progress” this year, and he even confirmed this pushes rate cuts further off:

Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell said Tuesday that the U.S. economy … has not seen inflation come back to the central bank’s goal, pointing to the further unlikelihood that interest rate cuts are in the offing anytime soon….

Powell said that while inflation continues to make its way lower, it hasn’t moved quickly enough, and the current state of policy should remain intact.

“More recent data shows solid growth and continued strength in the labor market, but also a lack of further progress so far this year on returning to our 2% inflation goal,” the Fed chief said during a panel talk.

Echoing recent statements by central bank officials, Powell indicated the current level of policy likely will stay in place until inflation gets closer to target….

“The recent data have clearly not given us greater confidence, and instead indicate that it’s likely to take longer than expected to achieve that confidence,” he said….

Powell added that until inflation shows more progress, “We can maintain the current level of restriction for as long as needed….”

Treasury yields rose as Powell spoke. The benchmark 2-year note, which is especially sensitive to Fed rate moves, briefly topped 5%, while the benchmark 10-year yield rose 3 basis points. The S&P 500 wavered after Powell’s remarks, briefly turning negative on the day before recovering.

Some of the other central-bank officials who made similar statements today were …

Federal Reserve Vice Chair Philip Jefferson …

who suggested Tuesday that the central bank’s key rate may have to remain at its peak for a while to bring down persistently elevated inflation…. He said his outlook is that inflation will cool even with the Fed’s key rate “held steady at its current level….”

Jefferson’s remarks appeared to open the door to the prospect that the Fed will dial back its forecast, issued at its most recent policy meeting in March, that it would carry out three quarter-point cuts this year to its benchmark rate, which stands at about 5.3%….

In his speech Tuesday, Jefferson said the Fed estimates that its preferred inflation gauge, which will be reported next week, rose in March, to 2.7% from a year earlier, up from 2.5% in February. Such an increase would echo a rise in the more widely followed consumer price index, which rose to 3.5% in March, from 3.2%.

and …

The Fed’s Daly who noted today …

The economy growing at a solid rate, the labor market is still strong, and inflation is above target.. Worst thing to do is act urgently when urgency isn't necessary.

The spinners’ gotta spin

As, in don’t act to lower rates at all when you don’t need to. The credit rating service, Moody’s, even chimed in today to say that current data clouds the rate-cut picture that markets have in mind. They now see the June cut that the stock market has switched to betting on as unlikely.

U.S. inflation is expected to retreat eventually, but the recent upside surprise in U.S. inflation data could delay monetary policy easing, says Moody’s Investors Service….

The latest robust reading adds to the uncertainty surrounding the timing of U.S. rate cuts. The rating agency said there is unlikely to be be enough evidence of declining inflation before the U.S. Federal Reserve Board’s mid-June meeting to enable it to begin reducing rates.

Let me say it more plainly for them: “The June rate cut is also now as good as long gone.”

Markets had previously targeted mid-year as the likely starting point for U.S. rate cuts.

That was, of course, after they had previously targeted March as their solid position for the starting point of US rate cuts. So, they don’t know much.

Disinflationary progress has slowed since the start of the year, but it is too early to conclude that it has stalled or reversed,” Moody’s said.

Really? Not according to Papa Powell, who seems to have found several ways of saying it has stalled. (See the many elements from his comments in boldface above.) I don’t know how anyone, especially Moody’s, can say with a straight face that the Fed’s fight hasn’t stalled? Seriously? Look at the FACTS (even as presented by the Fed);

You don’t get much more stalled than that! Good grief, people are thick when it comes to admitting the more-than-obvious truth. And notice the stall goes right back to the first uptick in July where I notified my readers that inflation had just put in a turn that would last (when the media was NOWHERE near saying such a thing). From that date on, I tracked the stall throughout those months, pointing out “still stalling.” Even “rising.” To this day, some like Moody’s, even when they are writing about disinflation slowing down, cannot bring themselves to admit that it isn’t just slowing down. It’ has STOPPED! ZERO PROGRESS FOR NINE MONTHS!

Yet, the picture is actually far worse than a mere stall, as I’ll lay out below, due to how the numbers have been manipulated.

While Moody’s expressed irrational belief that inflation will eventually start to cool again this year, I don’t see it that way any more than I see ANY way of saying, based on the clear facts above (and below), that inflation hasn’t stalled. Oil is certainly rising, which will continue to contribute a lot to inflation’s rise directly and over time a lot more indirectly. Even if Israel doesn’t make a harsh reprisal to Iran’s first-ever direct attack from its own borders into Israel’s (far from a sure bet), Iran may very well respond to whatever Israel does do, as Iran has stated it will do in the news today much more quickly than it last response and using “weapons it has never used before,” which will press Israel to do a lot more. (See headlines below.)

It seems an obviously terrible bet to lay against those odds the claim that inflation will cool! I don’t think either Iran or Israel is going to cool off under the collar anytime soon. So, how is inflation going to cool with Middle East oil on fire and shipping routes closed by terrorists, driven, funded, and weaponized by super-heated Iran? If Iran doesn’t directly attack Israel again out of fear of a much harsher response from Israel and its allies, it will certainly find ways to attack more fiercely through its multiple proxy wars, such has hitting the Red Sea harder to hurt the West and pushing the Hezbollah and Syrian gangs to do more. There is almost zero chance at present of the Middle East cooling down. It’s only a question of how much hotter that hell gets.

Inflation much hotter than reported!

There are a few things I should note from the earlier inflation reports that I was going to highlight in my last Deeper Dive, which I’ll lay out now as they are way to important to let them slide by, even as a Middle-Eastern raging war has taken over the news:

One is that, as hot as inflation was in the last PPI report, it would have been worse if not for massive “seasonal adjustments.” The devil is in details, and I would question how much the details were seasonally adjusted to look a lot less bad than the raw numbers. The details were adjusted far more than they were in other March’s, so why was this March so unseasonably seasonable when compared to other reports from the same season (going off the five years before the pandemic as the days when things were normal)? How convenient for Biden that there was so much unstated justification for adjusting the degrees of inflation down so much more than in other Marches! It seems he’s getting a little extra mileage out of Covid. Maybe the economy has long Covid.

In fact, if you smooth things out over three months, the smoothened numbers look worse than the raw numbers:

Wolf Street

And, if you take out the seasonal adjustments, they look worse still:

Wolf Street

Second, the ALL of the three-month rates (to smooth out the “bumpiness” Powell originally used as his new “transitory” non-starter) jumped higher, meaning the smoothed January report and the smoothened February report and the smoothened March report, all jumped higher. So, you can’t even smoothen out those bumps when you try by spreading them across three month averages.

Core CPI, which the Fed prefers, also looked much worse, even with the adjustments:

There is no way to make that pig look good with a little more lipstick because the pig is roasting on a spit in hell! Even seasonal fashion lipstick can’t do the trick because it melts off faster than you can apply it. And both services and goods were way back up over the first three months of this year. UP, not just stalled! So, all elements of inflation are doing worse, and the Middle East heat assures a greater inferno to come. You can believe in Moody’s fact-free, fantasy cooling period if you want to; or you can believe in the obvious reality raging as an inferno all around us. Who has steered you right so far?

So, welcome to Fed hell, prepared in advance for us all!

(If you missed my article on the eclipse and the new war between Israel and Iran—more dangerous than any others in the Middle East in decades—and you’re interested in apocalyptic stuff, you can find it here: “The Apoceclipse: We Survived! ... or did we?”)

Still Poking the Bear: F-16's from Netherlands Arrive in Romania - for Ukraine pilots!

Hal Turner World 17 April 2024 Hits: 12669

Three Royal Netherlands Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcons landed at the Romanian 86th Air Base Lieutenant-Aviator Gheorghe Mociornita in Borce (Calarasi County).

The jets will be used to train, and then used by, Ukrainian pilots.

There are no air fields remaining inside Ukraine which can accommodate the F-16's. The runways are too bumpy from Russian attacks. There is almost no fuel supply, and no weapons storage remaining at most bases.

So if these F-16's are going to be used in combat by Ukraine, it __appears__ they will have to take-off from, then return to, bases in Romania, in order to be refueled, re-armed and maintained.

If that takes place . . . . if Ukrainian pilots takeoff from a foreign base, and attack Russian forces in Ukraine, then return to that foreign base for refueling, re-arming and maintenance, then Russia has made clear THAT FOREIGN BASE will become a legitimate military target.

Each and every day, the collective west moves closer and closer to direct confrontation with Russia.

They are doing this despite Russia having increased its military industrial production by fifteen times (15x) and by doing so, now out-produced the total, combined production of the West by seven times.

Moreover, not only is Russia's production 7 times that of the west, the stockpiles of weapons and ammunition in the West have been either seriously depleted or wiped-out altogether, by supplying Ukraine. So the West has almost nothing to fall back on as far as reserve ammunition.

Yet the West continues to escalate the Russia-Ukraine conflict - in complete denial they are heading down the road to direct war and thereby, their own annihilation.

Readers in Europe and in the United States are reminded that if direct warfare breaks out between Russia and NATO, countries in Europe, and sites within the continental United States can - and likely will - come under Russian missile attack.

Are you ready to see parts of your country blowing up? Because that may be where this is heading.

I urge readers in the US and in Europe to have emergency food, water, medicines, first-aid kit, flashlights for each member of your family or each room of your house, with spare batteries for those flashlights. Have communications gear like Citizen's Band (CD) or a HAM radio for local communications. If we get hit, it is almost guaranteed that communications systems, phone landlines, cellular, fax, the Internet and email will all go offline. You really should have a way to communicate with neighbors and to hear global news via shortwave. So get a portable AM/FM/Shortwave radio with spare batteries so you can get information.

Have a generator with spare fuel to keep your refrigerator running, and maybe power a light or two in the house. DO NOT OPERATE A GENERATOR INDOORS; their gas-powered engines give off carbon monoxide gas which will KILL YOU if it is inside your house. Generators must only be run outside.

Have extra fuel for the generator, because when the SHTF, those who did not prepare by getting supplies in advance, will find themselves standing on mile-long gas lines trying to get fuel. Then the gas stations will start running out, and you'll be left with nothing.

GET CASH MONEY. Have some cash money stashed in the house. If the SHTF, communications lines will likely go down and there won't be any way to authorize your credit or debit cards to buy anything. Cash will be king. If you don't have any when the SHTF, you won't have any hope of buying what you need to survive.

DON'T WAIT. Get supplies now. If you wait, you'll be "shit outta luck (SOL)."

There is still some small window of time for you to begin accumulating these emergency prep supplies. If you wait, until the bombs actually start hitting, you'll find yourself out of time and out of luck because every schmuck in the country who ALSO waited, will all be headed out to the stores for supplies. They will strip store shelves bare. Gas stations will run empty and you will find yourself with nothing. No food. No water. No medicine. No electricity, No communications, and no money.

Iran Hit Secret Israeli Intel Base at Golan Heights! Smashed by Missile Attack

Hal Turner World April 15, 2024 Hits: 7816

The Israeli government is furious over one of the targets struck by the Iran missile attack two nights ago. That attack utterly smashed a secret Israeli Intelligence Base - Pictured above, in the Golan Heights.

According to Israeli sources, the heaviest damage that was inflicted on the Israeli government during Iran's retaliatory attack is the secret intelligence base in the north of the occupied Golan Heights located in Jabal al-Sheikh (Mount Hermon).

The importance and sensitivity of this place is such that the Israeli army imposed a complete media ban for this area and everything is censored and no damage assessment and public announcement is allowed.

This intelligence base played a role in the recent Israeli attack on the Iranian embassy in Damascus, and in general, in recent years, it has played a very important and prominent role in intelligence operations against Syria and Iran.

The base is now smashed.

Russia Hits FRENCH FOREIGN LEGION TROOPS in Ukraine

Hal Turner World April 15, 2024 Hits: 8294

On April 13, this website reported the arrival of French Foreign Legion troops into Slavyansk, Ukraine. Overnight, those troops were hit and mostly killed by the Russian Army.

The original story from April 13 appears HERE

The French military brought the CAESAR self-propelled gun to Slavyansk

According to the Military Chronicle, the brigade artillery group consists of 12 to 15 wheeled howitzers, as well as several Renault trucks with auxiliary equipment. According to preliminary information, the equipment was transferred for storage to the Starokramatorsky Machine-Building Plant from Dnepropetrovsk.

In Slavyansk itself, in the area of ​​clay quarries, as well as to the south (in the Cherevkovka area), firing positions have already been prepared for these guns: a road has been rolled out and ammunition supply routes have been equipped.

Most likely, we are talking about the potential use of the French CAESAR for barrage fire in the event of an attack by the Russian Armed Forces on Slavyansk, but we cannot exclude the use of this technology in the defense of Chasov Yar and its likely transfer to units of the 54th Mechanized Infantry Brigade of the Ukrainian Armed Forces (as well as the direct participation of the French within this division.)

When firing extended-range projectiles with a bottom gas generator from the Belenkoye area (between Kramatorsk and Slavyansk), the entire eastern part of Chasov Yar, including the western part of Bogdanovka and the entry point of Russian troops in the area of ​​vocational school No . 77 in the Kanal microdistrict, may be in the CAESAR destruction zone.

Those French troops and their CAESAR artillery were demolished overnight by the Russian Army.

Russia had previously warned NATO countries that if they sent troops into Ukraine, those troops would become legitimate targets. Now, Russia has made good on its word (again) and a slew of French Foreign Legion troops are now dead.

Syracuse police officer and a deputy killed in shooting in Salina

Updated: Apr. 15, 2024, 8:13 a.m.|Published: Apr. 14, 2024, 9:30 p.m.

By Jon Moss | jmoss@syracuse.comRylee Kirk | rkirk@syracuse.comMarnie Eisenstadt | meisenstadt@syracuse.comTim Knauss | tknauss@syracuse.comDarian Stevenson | DStevenson@syracuse.com

Syracuse, N.Y. — Two police officers were killed Sunday night in a shootout on a suburban street in Salina.

A Syracuse police officer and an Onondaga County sheriff’s deputy were both killed when they went to follow up on a traffic stop where the driver sped away, said Syracuse Police Chief Joe Cecile.

The officers were not identified.

The trouble started with a traffic stop at 7 p.m. in the city’s Tipp Hill neighborhood, Cecile said. That’s when Syracuse police tried to pull over a car, but the driver refused and sped off. Police took the plate number, which led them to a home on Darien Drive, a short street with tidy lawns and basketball hoops in the driveways.

There, police saw guns in the back of the car, Cecile said. And then, from inside the home, they heard the sound of a gun being readied to fire, he said.

Gunfire filled the little neighborhood as the officers and the suspect exchanged shots. The two officers and the suspect were all hit. The suspect also was killed, Cecile said. He did not identify the man.

“This is our worst nightmare come true,” said Syracuse Mayor Ben Walsh. “Our thoughts right now are with the families of those two officers, those heroes.”

Police gave some details about the two officers who were killed. The Syracuse officer had three years on the force. He was ambitious and hard-working, Cecile said.

The deputy had been with the department for a considerable time. “He was just a great guy,” said Onondaga County Sheriff Toby Shelley.

Shelley said the house, at 4945 Darien Dr., had been secured and there is no threat to the neighborhood, but that police were still going through the scene just after midnight.

“It’s just a very sad day for law enforcement,” Shelley said.

He and the others spoke at midnight down the hill from the emergency room in front of the Wallie Howard Forensic Center. That’s where the officers’ bodies had been brought for autopsies.

Howard, the officer for whom the center is named, was the last officer shot and killed in the line of duty in Onondaga County. That was more than 30 years ago.

That streak was broken with what seemed to be such a routine call:

“We’re chasing cars every day,” Shelley said. “Every day ...”

One of the officers who responded to the scene reported seeing AR-style magazines in the back of a car, and sounds of “racking” coming from a house, according to 911 center dispatches.

An officer down call went out at 8:51 p.m.

After the shootings, police from multiple agencies swarmed the area on Darien Drive.

Shortly after 9 p.m. a vehicle was rushing a person to Upstate University Hospital, according to 911 center dispatches. Police were rushing to shut down an Interstate 81 ramp to clear the way for the vehicle.

One dispatch from the 911 center described the call as a mass casualty incident. That would indicate three or more victims. Multiple ambulances were dispatched to the area.

A sheriff’s deputy responded to a home at 4945 Darien Drive around 8:20 p.m. to assist Syracuse police, according to 911 center dispatches.

Witness: At least 20 shots fired

Mousa Alzokari, who lives directly across the street from the house where the shooting occurred, said he heard a flurry of shots at about 8:45 p.m. He called 911.

Not long after, two officers with long guns entered the back door of Alzokari’s house without knocking and went up to the second floor, where they took positions facing the shooting scene. They were still there as of 11:20 p.m., while Alzokari and five children waited on the ground floor.

Altogether, Alzokari estimated he heard at least 20 shots fired. The two officers in his house did not fire shots, he said.

At one point, Alzokari said, he saw an officer being carried to a sheriff’s vehicle and driven away. He also saw at least one person placed in handcuffs. But police continued to surround the house, leading Alzokari to believe a suspect remained inside.

Alzokari, who has lived on Darien Drive for about four years, said it’s normally a quiet street.

“The kids are scared and shaken now,” he said.

Brian Fagan, 49, heard a car ripping around the corner of Larkin Street and North Woodland Drive around 8:30 p.m. Sunday. The vehicle flew past his home with five deputy police cruisers following behind, he said.

Fagan heard tires screech as the vehicles came to a stop at the intersection of North Woodland Drive and Oakland Terrace. Then four to five gunshots went off, he said.

Ambulances, the Liverpool Fire Department and city, state and county officers rushed to the scene, Fagan said. Air 1, the sheriff’s helicopter, hovered overhead for two hours, he said.

It all happened within a matter of 20 minutes.

“I’m looking out my window now and there’s probably 30 to 40 state troopers and sheriff’s up my street,” he said.

Just after 9 p.m., the county 911 system alerted those in the neighborhood to shelter in place, according to Fagan. He doesn’t normally pick up his home phone, but with all the traffic and everything going on, he needed to answer it.

A silent procession

At about 10:45 p.m., a dozen police cars were parked on both sides of East Adams Street near Upstate hospital. There were about two dozen city police and sheriff’s deputies near the door to the emergency room.

By midnight, 100 men and women stood shoulder to shoulder from the emergency room door all the way down East Adams Street. Some were in uniform; others were wearing whatever they had on when they heard the news and rushed over.

No one spoke. The only sound was Air 1 flying overhead.

The line snapped wordlessly to attention as the officers’ bodies were loaded into the white vans that would carry them from the hospital to the crime lab.

A silent procession of police cars followed behind the vans. The streets around the hospital were blocked off. So many firetrucks and police cars came that all the side streets were full of flashing lights, too.

From far away, the hill glowed red and blue.

The Explosion Of Mental Illness In America: 'It Is No Measure Of Health To Be Well Adjusted To A Profoundly Sick Society' - Psychopaths Rule Over America And The Western World

- America & The West Have Become The Laughing Stock Of The World

By Stefan Stanford - Live Free Or Die - All News Pipeline April 14, 2024

"It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society" J. Krishnamurti

In this new story over at the Epoch Times they report that at least 20 REAL women have withdrawn from their soccer team over at the Syndey, Australia based league to allow men (pretending in their absolutely WARPED 'transgender' minds to be REAL women!) to compete against REAL women due to the very REAL potential of the REAL WOMEN, playing against men, getting hurt in those games.

Reporting that the 'team' calling itself the “biggest LGBTQIA+ women’s and non-binary football club in the world,” the Flying Bats FC, had made international headlines for using on their 'team' at least 5 self-identifying transgender players, with at least nine transgender players in the wider NorthWest Association, I still remember growing up in the 1960's and 1970's when the 'women's rights movement' was exploding in American streets, seeking 'equal rights and opportunities and greater personal freedom for women,' though if you look out into the world today, many aspects of that 'movement' have been crushed and destroyed by allowing REAL MEN to compete in pro sports against women.

With all of those 'trannies' allowing the Flying Bats to utterly dominate their four-week pre-season Beryl Ackroyd Cup, which followed an undefeated season in 2023 that produced score lines disproportionate to other teams’ results, that story is a perfect example of what we're witnessing right now in this March 26th of 2023 story by James Corbett over at The Corbett Report substack about America and the Western World's Dissent Into Madness and the world that they're driven to bring on to the rest of us, a world full of projections by psychopaths, especially with psychopaths that now largely rule over the Western world.

And while league officials in Australia are planning on officially punishing the teams that decide upon leaving REAL WOMEN out of their games, thus forfeiting those games rather than risk bringing harm to their REAL WOMEN players by forcing them to go up against REAL MEN PRETENDING TO BE WOMEN, it baffles us beyond belief that so many leftist women have sacrificed those rights that so many of them fought so diligently for back in 60's and 70's, while quite literally sacrificing the safety, health and well-being of their daughters to the beast of insanity.

And not only 'liberal' women are sacrificing with the school systems all across the country going absolutely crazy with this idiocy as well, sure to adversely effect the children of Conservatives. Is this REALLY what America and 'The West' have come to, the laughing stock of the world?

(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.)

As this story over at Yahoo Sports reports of the 'Flying (Batsh*t crazy) 'Bats' in Australia back on March 28th, while 'winning' the Beryl Ackroyd Cup in the WOMEN'S league there, they 'won' all four of the games that they played there, including one by a score of 10-0 in which one of those 'tranny' players scored a double hat trick, all of the while they broke one opponents legs in two different places.

Reporting that any team within that competition who actually forfeited a game against them would be guilty of 'discrimination,' the Flying Bats ended up going on winning the $1,000 first prize in that tournament after 24 of the REAL WOMEN players in the 'league' decided not to compete in a tournament against REAL MEN PRETENDING TO BE WOMEN due to the possibility of injuries, and just imagine HOW MANY MORE OF THEM would have been hurt had they gone through with it!

And while America's insane Commander In Chief helped prove his insanity by declaring upon Easter that it would be the 'Transgender Day of Visibility,' he never once acknowledged those REAL WOMEN's RIGHTS that were fought for so hard back in the 60's and 70's and won, instead deciding to take away the RIGHTS of some REAL WOMEN by forcing them to partake in sports often dominated by REAL MEN, putting them at very real risk of very real physical harm, but Biden clearly doesn't care about that possibility.

And while we completely agree with what has been expressed by some of the women's teams in that Australian 'football league,' that the league’s governing body, the Football NSW, should force the Bats into playing in a mixed-sex league because, as one club official told the Daily Telegraph, “Our girls are here to play for fun and expect to play in the female competition. They did not sign up for a mixed competition, the POTUS of the 'Flying Bats' nonetheless claims that 'trannies' deserve to be in the women's league because, insanely, 'that is who they identify as'. Well what about those REAL WOMEN who are getting KILLED by the MEN PRETENDING TO BE WOMEN?

"It was so disheartening for them to see the huge difference in ability—they’re killing it.”

The involvement of transgender athletes in sports is a current hot-button issue, as policymakers grapple with how to balance the effects on women’s players, versus the “rights” of female-identifying players born as biological men.

Advocates argue that transgender individuals should be able to participate in sports according to their gender identity, while opponents raise concerns about fairness and competitive advantage.

One of the key points of contention is the impact of testosterone levels on athletic performance. Testosterone affects muscle mass, strength, and endurance, and transgender males who have undergone hormone therapy to transition may still have higher testosterone levels than cisgender females, providing a competitive advantage in women’s sports.

With myself a wrestler back in my school days, I NEVER would have thought wrestling against REAL WOMEN would have been 'fair' as it certainly would have given me an unfair advantage over almost whoever they were, and never were REAL MEN permitted to wrestle against REAL WOMEN no matter what weight class they were in. Does that even sound the least bit 'fair'?

And as James Corbett reports in this March 26th of 2023 story, we're witnessing nothing less than "Dissent Into Madness" taking place with our "projections of psychopaths" here in the US and most of the Western world in 2024.

With Corbett very accurately pointing out that conspiracy theorizing is being pathologized as a mental disorder and how this false diagnosis is being used to justify the forced psychiatric detention and medication of 9/11 truthers and COVID dissenters, also take note in the passage ahead how this 'psychological weapon' is now being wielded against any would-be dissenters WHILE those 'in charge' are themselves driven by a psychopathological disorder. Yes, the batsh*t crazy are 'running the show' in America and the west. From that crucial story.:

Being Sane In An Insane Society

If you are reading this column, chances are you're already aware of just how insane our society can be.

Maybe you first realized something was deeply wrong with our world when you noticed the discrepancy between what most people actually believe—that JFK was assassinated as the result of a conspiracy, for example—and what you're expected to say in "polite" society—namely, that the Warren Commission got to the bottom of the matter and that anyone who questions its findings is a crazy conspiracy theorist.

Or perhaps the penny dropped when you heard ex-US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright blithely declare on 60 Minutes that the death of half a million Iraqi children in the State Department's campaign against Saddam Hussein was "worth it."

Or maybe you, like many millions of others around the world, began to question the sanity of our society when you saw the madness of the past three years, with governments locking people in their homes and subjecting the poorest among us to starvation and forcing never-before-used medical interventions on billions of people in the name of "public health."

I, too, have had my own such moments of awareness. And, feeling the frustration that comes from realizing just how sick and twisted the world can be, I am often reminded of Jiddu Krishnamurti's famous observation: "It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society."

But I've also found that you get used to the insanity of this sick society after a while. In fact, you come to expect it.

Of course politicians are always lying to the public.

Of course those in positions of power wouldn't think twice about killing thousands of their fellow citizens—let alone untold millions in the Middle East—in order to achieve their goals.

Of course they'll cook up a phoney scamdemic to usher in their biosecurity state and of course it has nothing to do with keeping people healthy.

In fact, once you've seen through the lies and realized just how profoundly sick our society has become, it turns out that it's not the big things that shock you anymore. It's the little things.

And while Corbett's excellent column goes on and on about 'the little things' in society today that are maddening, and I'll skip those so that you can visit his website and get more deeply into the meat of his piece if you so choose, I'll close here with one of his story segment conclusions about 'a sign' about 'Sustainable Development Goals' that he has seen in Japan. And guess where that sign was? Of ALL places, it was over a urinal. Has it come to a point in time where we have to think about 'global warming' when we're going to the bathroom?:

Meanwhile, I have been watching with consternation as the SDGs have begun intruding more and more into everyday life here in Japan. It's not at all unusual to see a product ad displaying the characteristic coloured boxes indicating which SDG (or SDGs) that product is supposedly promoting (however tenuously), or to see lapel pins sporting the rainbow circle of the SDG logo, now a common accoutrement on the suits of Japanese salarymen.

But to see an SDG here? On a sign over a urinal? Is there truly nowhere we can go where we're not subjected to this 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Enslavement propaganda and all of the Great Reset/Fourth Industrial Revolution/neo-feudal/transhuman nightmare it invokes?

Perhaps the strangest part of all is that if I were to point out this insanity to the average person here, they would look at me as if I were the crazy one. And if I were to back up my viewpoint with the volumes of documented information about the perverse nature of this UN-fronted globalist agenda—the information contained in numerous documentaries and podcasts and interviews and articles on the subject—I would doubtless appear even crazier.

"What's the big deal? It's just a sign."

As it turns out, the sign is indeed a sign. A sign that our society is in fact suffering from the effects of a mental illness.

Russia Deploys Frigate with Hypersonic Missiles into Mediterranean Sea

After Russian President Vladimir Putin told the United States that intervening against Iran would result in Russia intervening to support Iran, a Russian frigate with hypersonic missiles entered the waters of the Mediterranean Sea.

A Russian frigate equipped with hypersonic missiles entered the waters of the Mediterranean Sea this Sunday after crossing the Suez Canal, after which Moscow stated that the vessel "will fulfill its assigned tasks", without further details.

The frigate Marshall Shaposhnikov transited the Suez Canal. "The ship's crew continues to carry out their assigned tasks as part of their long sea journey" the Russian Ministry of Defense said this morning.

"In the Mediterranean Sea, the Pacific Fleet frigate will operate in line with the previously planned combat and training line." the Ministry continued.

At the moment, there are no further details about this plan, or how long the frigate will remain near the Israeli-Iran conflict zone.

Half of Iran's ballistic missiles fell short en route to Israel, report says

Several nations urge Israel to avoid escalation, though Israeli officials contend attack warrants a response

ynet correspondents|12:53

Only half of the ballistic missiles Iran fired on Israel during its unprecedented attack against the Jewish state on Saturday were intercepted while the rest fell short, the Wall Street Journal reported on Monday.

According to the report, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates shared intelligence with the United States that helped facilitate the successful interception of many missiles and drones while Jordan allowed the U.S. to use its airspace to shoot down incoming threats.

A senior U.S. source told ABC that some of Iran's ballistic missiles caused some damage to a C-130 military transport aircraft and some empty storage depots at the Nevatim Airbase in southern Israel.

U.S. President Joe Biden spoke to members of the 335th and 494th fighter squadrons that took an active role in intercepting Iranian ballistic missiles, saying their activity "saved many lives."

The New York Times reported that U.S. efforts helped intercept over 80 drones and at least six ballistic missiles. Additionally, U.S. forces attacked a missile launcher and seven drones in Houthi-controlled Yemen.

While Israeli officials are still contemplating a forceful response to Iran's assault, Iranian Ambassador to the UN Saeed Iravani told Sky News he "knows what our second retaliation would be." Iravani further estimated Israel would not initiate a retaliatory move in response to Saturday's attack.

France, the United Kingdom and Germany have called on Israel to refrain from striking Iran for fear of possibly igniting a regional conflict. German Chancellor Olaf Scholz called on Israel to "prevent an escalation."

French President Emmanuel Macron said "we are all concerned about a possible escalation. France will do all it can to prevent it and convince Israel there's no need to retaliate. Things are on shaky ground right now. Iran's response to Israel's attack in Damascus was disproportionate. We must stand by Israel to secure its national defense in the best way possible. In light of Jordan's request, France intercepted attacks from Iran."

UK Foreign Secretary David Cameron said Iran's attack was "disproportionate", and implored Israel to refrain from responding and instead focus its efforts on ceasing all hostilities in Gaza.

Iran's attack on Israel lasted about five hours, officials say. Here's what we know

From CNN staff

The unprecedented wave of strikes launched from Iran towards Israel appears to have subsided, two US officials said. The attacks lasted approximately five hours and plunged the already tinder box Middle East into uncharted territory.

Iran said the overnight attacks were retaliation for a deadly Israeli strike on the Iranian consulate in Damascus, Syria, earlier this month.

The Biden administration says almost all of the drones and missiles – including more than 100 ballistic missiles – launched at Israel by Iran have been knocked out of the sky.

US President Joe Biden told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a phone call that his country should consider tonight a win because the current US assessment is that Iran’s attacks had been largely unsuccessful and demonstrated Israel’s superior military capability, a senior administration official told CNN.

US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin has asked his Israeli counterpart, Yoav Gallant, to notify the US ahead of any potential response to the Iranian attack, according to a US official. The Israeli security cabinet has authorized the three-man war cabinet to decide on Israel’s response.

Here's what we know so far:

No direct casualties: There have been no reports of injuries suffered directly through Iranian strikes, according to Israel’s emergency service. However, However, a 7-year-old girl was severely injured by shrapnel from an interceptor missile while 31 people were treated for minor injuries or panic attacks.

G7 leaders to meet: Biden will meet with G7 leaders Sunday “to coordinate a united diplomatic response to Iran’s brazen attack,” according to a statement released by the White House. The leaders of Canada and Portugal condemned Iran's attack, while the prime minister of Spain expressed his “utmost concern."

No US offensive involvement: The US will not participate in any offensive operations against Iran, Biden has made clear to Netanyahu, a senior administration official told CNN.

How it started: Earlier this month, an airstrike destroyed Iran's consulate building in Damascus, Syria, and killed seven Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps officials — including top commanders, according to Iranian officials and state-affiliated media. The foreign ministers of Iran and Syria accused Israel of authoring the attack. Iran vowed to retaliate.

More on Iran's position: Iran’s regional allies say they entered confrontations with Israel on behalf of Palestinians in Gaza, Since the outbreak of war in Gaza, Iran’s proxies have launched attacks on Israel and its allies, while demanding a ceasefire in the Palestinian enclave.

What this means: The beginning of a state-on-state conflict between Iran and Israel marks a serious escalation in the regiona scenario that the US has hoped to avoid since the start of the Israel-Hamas war in October.

Israeli military says more than 55 rockets fired from Lebanon to Israel over past hour

More than 55 rockets have been fired from Lebanon to Israel over the past hour, according to the Israeli military's spokesperson.

This comes after about 40 rockets were fired at Israel from southern Lebanon on Friday, according to the Israel Defense Forces. Hezbollah militants said they had fired the rockets at Israeli artillery positions in response to recent Israeli attacks and in support of Palestinian people in Gaza.

Remember: Since the start of the Hamas-Israel war on October 7, Israel's flare-up with Hezbollah has intensified on Lebanon’s southern border with Israel.

Hezbollah — a Lebanese armed group backed by Iranhas its main area of operations there. Hezbollah has frequently fired missiles into Israel since October 7 and Israel has responded with its own fire, including airstrikes. Israel has ordered the evacuation of communities along the Lebanese border.

US forces throughout the region were positioned to provide defensive support to Israel ahead of the attack, and the US intended to intercept as many of the launches as it could. US forces intercepted a number of drones intended for Israel as part of a coordinated defensive effort, and Washington remains vigilant for the potential of more activity.

However, even as the number of Iranian drone and missile launches has fallen, Iranian proxy Hezbollah in Lebanon fired a barrage of rockets at northern Israel early Sunday mornin

Officials rush to shut down McKees Rocks Bridge after 23 barges break free in Pittsburgh - weeks after disaster that took down Key Bridge in Baltimore

McKees Rocks Police Department said just after midnight that they would be closing the bridge as a precaution

One local police scanner page said that an estimated 23 barges broke free down the river, with one striking a marina dock

Authorities have been forced to close down the McKees Rocks Bridge after 23 barges reportedly broke free from a tugboat on the Ohio River.

McKees Rocks Police Department said just after midnight that they would be closing the bridge as a precaution.

According to the department, there are currently a number of barges that have broken loose heading down the Ohio River.

One local police scanner page said that there were an estimated 23 barges going down the river, with one striking a marina dock.

In a statement, police said: 'There are number of barges broken loose headed down the Ohio River.

'They may or may not come into contact with sub-structure but we are not willing to take the risk. Please avoid this area until further notice.

It comes just weeks after a the Francis Scott Key Bridge collapsed after being hit by a container ship.

The ship - the Singaporean-flagged Dali - was 20 minutes into its journey when it slammed into a support column on the bridge.

Divers have recovered three bodies from the underwater wreckage, while the remaining three victims are still unaccounted for.

Crews have been working to extract sections of the fallen bridge, including those entangled in a muddy mess at the bottom of the Patapsco River.

The Coming Events – Iran & Ukraine

April 13, 2024  Guest Post by Martin Armstrong

The world is completely going insane. Markets have been rising with crude, gold, and the dollar in anticipation of an Iranian attack on Israel. The month of May looks to be very critical for markets on a global scale—no worries about our London Conference. We would not hold it in London if it appeared to be a risk. The risks are confined to Russia/Ukraine and the Middle East.

Putin is very Smart

We have a critical turning point on May 7th, which happens to be Putin’s inauguration day in Russia. The Ukrainians do as they are told, and even the Moscow attack was organized by the West, and they did not even try to hide it. They have been praying that Putin will retaliate and attack anything in NATO so they can launch WWIII. But Putin is very smart and he can see what they are trying to do. They need him to attack so they can claim it was unprovoked, as they did to Japan to get the USA into WWII. I fear that Ukraine will follow orders and attempt a stupid stunt against Putin directly for May 7th.

Zelenskyy Johnson

Many Ukrainians woke up after it was published in their main newspaper that Boris Johnson had jumped on a plane and instructed Zelensky that there would be no peace deal with Russia. He was to commit all Ukrainians to death in hopes of weakening Russia so NATO would be able to invade. Zelensky has sent over 500,000 Ukrainians to die for territory that Russians have occupied for hundreds of years. Crimea is Russia’s ONLY warm water port, and this war has been about trying to conquer that and turn it into a NATO port.

Zelensky.Skulls

This has no economic benefit to Ukrainians, and they have been used as pawns in the geopolitical game the West instigated under the leadership of Victoria Nuland. Zelensky has canceled all elections because the people would throw him out of office as a traitor taking orders from the West with no regard for Ukrainian lives.

ECM Ukraine 8.6 R

Ukraine is on the verge of collapse. Sending bullets does not help if you do not have people still standing to use them. We are approaching a critical turning point in the Ukraine War against Russia on April 19th/20th. There is no possible way Russia will be defeated. Nobody in the West ever thought Ukraine could win. Russia had 4.5 million in the army without drafting. Putin could have easily taken all of Ukraine but he has stuck to what he said originally – a special operation to only defend the Donbas. The hardliners criticize Putin for he should have taken Ukraine like the US did to Iraq and the war would have been over in 6 weeks. They have only been used to try to weaken Russia for the end goal of conquering Russia and stripping its wealth.

Then, in the Middle East, the markets are responding with the dollar, gold, and oil on the bid as many await the inevitable attack on Israel by Iran. The markets have rallied on reports that Israel is preparing for a direct attack by Iran this weekend. Many are expecting that this will be the biggest escalation of Middle East tensions in decades.

Iranian_Rial M Array 4 12 24

When we look at our models on Iran, it is the Month of May that has been the major target and the Directional Change. It is hard to interpret the fundamentals. Does Iran launch its retaliation in April and the major response to Iran in May, or does Iran wait for May 7th to respond?

Iranian_Rial D Array 3 27 24

What we can see is that the Israeli bombing of the Iranian embassy in Damascus on April 1st set in motion the shift in trend. The Daily Array pinpointed Friday, March 29th, as a turning point with a Double Directional Change. But there were three Directional changes into Monday, April 1st.

Iranian_Rial W Array 4 12 24

The Weekly Array showed a Directional Change starting the week of April 8th. Look at the next primary target – the ECM week of May 7th. We must understand that May 7th could be more than just one incident.

ECM Islamic State Wave 10

Our models in the Middle East are coming to a major turning point next year, 2025.22 (March 21/22, 2025). Our models on crude oil show a significant directional change in 2025.

Israel is preparing for a direct attack by Iran on southern or northern Israel, and it has been reported they expect it this weekend, according to a source telling The Wall Street Journal. Yet, they did tell the Journal that no final decision has been made, though plans for a strike are under discussion.

The U.S. embassy in Jerusalem Thursday restricted government employees and their families from personal travel outside Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, and Be’er Sheva “out of an abundance of caution” until further notice. There is no question that Iran will respond. The question is when.

Syracuse sets new high temperature, breaking 79-year-old record

Updated: Apr. 09, 2024, 6:08 p.m.|Published: Apr. 09, 2024, 5:34 p.m.

By Fernando Alba | falba@syracuse.com

Syracuse, N.Y. — Syracuse has broken a 79-year-old high temperature record for April 9.

A new high of 78 degrees was recorded just before 4 p.m., according to the National Weather Service. The previous record of 77 degrees was set in 1945.

The average high for today would be 43 degrees.

Syracuse’s official weather records began in 1903.

The weather service is forecasting a high of 66 degrees on Wednesday, well short of the record for that date of 82 degrees, also set in 1945.

Twelve Ways Biden's Handlers Are

Hellbent On Destroying America

By Frosty Wooldridge

Exclusive To Rense

4-9-24

Part 1: The incredible speed of our country being invaded, the devolving of our Constitution, our language being changed, our history be altered, we're guilty of being a free country.

Twenty years ago, I sat in the audience when historian Victor Davis Hanson spoke to a "Stop Mass Immigration" audience sponsored by www.Fairus.org  in Washington DC. I shook hands with him. He wrote an extremely prescient book: Mexifornia.

In that book, he exposed how Governor Jerry Brown of California back in 1975 to 1983, and 2011 to 2019, overwhelmed the state with illegal Mexican workers, drug pushers, rapists, shoplifters, welfare anchor babies, and job stealing. He noted how Mexicans moved into positions of power. Today, you're seeing California's ugly situation of being unable to function as a first world state. It features 200,000 homeless, shoplifting killing major stores and chains, regular murders on a grand scale, welfare off the charts for illegal aliens, hospitals and prisons overrun, and the Mexican flag flown more than Old Glory. You see schools taught in Spanish while gangs rob trains, carjack automobiles, cities destroyed by incompetent minority mayors.

Governor Gavin Newsome is totally useless, and MS-13 distributes drugs up and down every city in California. We're talking about the largest state in the lower 48 turning into a corrupt, disgusting and un-American colony. At that same conference, I heard Colorado Governor Richard Lamm give a brilliant speech on: "The Eight Ways to Destroy America." I wrote a book about it: Immigration's Unarmed Invasion: Deadly Consequences." I have been writing about our country being invaded for over 30 years. I've written three books on it. I've tried to warn the American people what's coming. I tried to interview on "60 Minutes, NPR, PBS" and another 30 major network programs.

They didn't and they won't touch it. Some very powerful people want to keep the American people clueless and in the dark as to what's coming. Last week, Hanson wrote a piece: " 11 Ways Biden's Handlers are Hellbent on Destroying America." You can access it on the Internet or Fox News. Notice Hanson's choice of words as to who runs our country. It's not the dementia-plagued Joe Biden. He's clueless, unintelligent, vacant minded and totally out of touch with what's happening to our country.

We are no longer a sovereign country. Biden's handlers have erased our borders. I talked about it in my first book. What astounds me stems from the speed of this invasion. We're talking in excess of 12 million illegal aliens in the past 40 months and over 30 million more already here since 1986.

We are being hung out to death with Congresses' $34 trillion debt. President John Adams said there are two ways to defeat a country, "By the sword or by debt." We're in a hell of a mess with this gargantuan debt that WILL destroy our economic foundation.

Biden's handlers have given Iran and China the keys, money and power to destroy us. Whether it was his son Hunter gaining millions by his father's VP status, or Biden's sheer corruption over the past 50 years in Congress, Iran and China have him by his gonads. That means we're all screwed.

Our identity is now defined by dozens of opposing tribes. We've got so many other tribes in our country, we're no longer Americans. Millions of us identify as something other than "American." Hanson said, "Ensure each identity group rivals the other for victimhood and the state spoils it confers. Reboot all political issues by race and sex oppressors and oppressed. Destroy all meritocratic standards of admission, retention, promotion and commendation."

Change crime from a crime to social issue : do not punish criminals. Reward them. Allow $100 billion in shoplifting annually. Allow 100,000 drug overdoses annually by keeping the borders wide open. Allow American money to the tune of $120 billion annually to fly out from our country to other countries as cash transfers. Invest in "no-bail", no jail, and it's okay to shoot and kill police offers. That's what's happening across America in 2024.

Turn the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard into a bunch of transgenders, gays, illegal aliens, mentally deficient and mentally unfit discontents who can't fight their way out of a paper bag. The fact today: our military is more worried about a transgender's choice of uniform such as a lady's skirt and high heels on a DNA male, rather than a MAN with a PAIR that's trained to defend America with his life.

Hanson said, " Deliberately impugn as racists and insurrectionists the largest demographic in the military who in recent wars died at twice their numbers in the population — so that they leave or never join the military. Encourage retired high officers to slander their commander-in-chief. Cut the defense budget. Stop producing sufficient weapons, but leave billions of dollars' worth of arms to terrorists."

The fact is: somebody like General Milley left $90 billion worth of military hardware in Afghanistan. That wasn't a mistake. It was Biden's handlers totally in control and out to kill America.

In Part 2, we're going to examine the last six items that show how Biden's handlers are hellbent on destroying America. When he brings in another 10 million Muslims, 5 million Chinese and 1-5 million Africans with chain-migration along with "asylum seekers", we won't know who we are or what the hell to do to save ourselves. Biden's handers are effectively destroying our culture, our language, our identity and our way of life.

Russia raises stakes with moves along Israel's borders

Analysis: While relations have experienced strain since October 7, they have not reached a breaking point, leaving room for potential diplomatic maneuvering in the near future

Ariel Oseran/i24NEWS|03.31.24 | 16:01

As Russian warships from the Pacific Fleet enter the Red Sea amid heightened tensions, and with Russian forces establishing new observation posts along the Israel-Syria border, questions arise about Russia's intentions in the Middle East.

The Russian Ministry of Defense announced that a missile cruiser and a frigate have crossed the Bab-el-Mandeb Strait and reached the Red Sea amid ongoing Houthi attacks, though the purpose of their mission remains unclear.

This move follows the Kremlin's denial of receiving security assurances from the Houthis to prevent attacks on their ships, raising concerns about Russia's strategic goals.

Simultaneously, Russian forces continue to expand their presence in the Syrian Golan Heights, with plans to inaugurate an 11th observation post soon.

The recent surge in Russian involvement in the region, particularly concerning Israel, since October 7, prompts two main interpretations.

Firstly, Russia appears to be asserting itself in the Red Sea, aligning its actions with its rhetoric. By deploying ships to the Red Sea amidst escalating tensions, Russia is signaling its willingness to engage in the volatile maritime arena, potentially altering the dynamics of the region significantly.

Moreover,
