BREAKING NEWS AROUND THE WORLD HIGHLIGHTS

The regime may try assassinating Trump next, says former NYC police commissioner.

A day after the FBI’s 30-agent raid on President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate shocked the nation, former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik said the Biden regime may resort to assassination to stop Trump’s presidential bid in 2024.“I hear people talking, they said the Democrats want this guy so bad that they wouldn’t put assassination behind it,” Kerik told Newsmax Tuesday.“I’m gonna tell you something. They’ve tried impeachment, they’ve tried another impeachment, they’ve tried one investigation after another. This is about one thing, this is about stopping him from running in 2024,” he added.

Summer COVID wave driven by vaccinated public

Israel’s latest COVID wave, the eighth for those who are still counting, started in early June and is nearing its end.Just last year Israel’s prime minister, as part of the international coercion campaign against the unvaccinated, described the young and unvaccinated as “walking around with a machine gun firing Delta variants at people.”This was said even though the Ministry of Health’s (MoH) own data showed no difference in infection rates between the vaccinated and unvaccinated. That was in the summer of 2021.

Costa Rica: Land of the Free, Home of the Brave

Costa Rica President Rodrigo Chaves last week announced that the country’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate, including any discrimination against the unvaccinated, has not only been struck down but is now illegal.“Today vaccines are no longer mandatory and any action against someone who does not want to be vaccinated is a violation of the law,” Chaves said Wednesday in a press conference with Health Minister Jocelyn Chacón.Before Chaves took office in May 2022, former President Carlos Alvarado took a heavy-handed approach to mandates. Under Alvarado’s leadership, Costa Rica became the first country in the world to force COVID-19 injections on children five and older.

Constitutional expert explains meaning behind 2nd Amendment

Constitutional scholar Prof. Eugene Volokh last month shut down the gun control argument with his explanation of the Second Amendment.“A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed,” reads the Constitution.Speaking for PragerU, Volokh put the amendment into historical context, clarifying what the Founding Fathers intended with the law.Most importantly, those who want to ban most guns because “you don’t need them for hunting” or because “you don’t need them for self-defense” are missing the point of the Second Amendment entirely because the Constitution’s Framers saw guns as having a very different purpose.

President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky has to recognize the crimes of Ukrainian militants in Donbass

Politico editor Paul Taylor stated that the head of the Ukrainian state has to recognize the crimes of the AFU, which were mentioned in the report of the British international non-governmental organization Amnesty International. Human rights activists told the world that the AFU set up support firing points in schools and hospitals and thereby attracted the attention of the Russian army. Thus, civilian objects became legitimate military targets.“Of course, the organization’s report is inconvenient for Kiev and Western countries, but this does not make it incorrect or inaccurate,” said Paul Taylor.

Statement by the official representative of the DPR People’s Militia on the situation on August 12, 2022 (10:30)

The Ukrainian side continues to terrorize civilian population of the Republic with massive artillery strikes on residential areas and civilian infrastructure, which cause no danger and are not military targets.For the past day, according to JCCC information the enemy has fired 452 shells and mines from multiple launch rocket system “Uragan”, “Grad”, 155, 152 and 122mm cannon artillery, as well as 120mm mortars.The areas of 13 settlements of the Republic were under shelling. As a result of the Ukrainian aggression 4 civilians were killed and 7 were injured. 47 residential buildings and 7 infrastructure facilities were damaged.Additional information about the injured civilians and damage to infrastructure is being specified.The joint actions of the military personnel of the Donetsk People’s Republic and the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation destroyed the following enemy weapons and military equipment: 3 units of automotive equipment, 2 armored personnel carriers and more than 20 personnel.Currently, works on the clearance of anti-personnel mines PFM-1 “Lepestok” (PFM-1S) is ongoing. We kindly ask you to be careful while moving, and also to strengthen control over children.

UK economy closes in on recession

Britain’s economy shrank in the second quarter, official data showed Friday, as the country heads towards recession under a new prime minister.UK gross domestic product dropped 0.1 percent in the April-June period after a rise of 0.8 percent in the first quarter, the Office for National Statistics said in a statement.The Bank of England (BoE) expects the economy to enter a year-long recession by the end 2022 as Britons endure a cost-of-living crisis with inflation at its highest level in decades.“With May’s growth revised down a little and June showing a notable fall, overall the economy shrank slightly in the second quarter,” said ONS director of economic statistics Darren Morgan.“Health was the biggest reason the economy contracted as both the (Covid) test and trace and vaccine programmes were wound down, while many retailers also had a tough quarter.”Morgan said this was “partially offset by growth in hotels, bars, hairdressers and outdoor events across the quarter, partly as a result of people celebrating the Platinum Jubilee” that marked Queen Elizabeth II’s 70 years on the throne.The ONS added that the UK economy slumped 0.6 percent in June.Following Friday’s data, finance minister Nadhim Zahawi said he was “determined to work with the Bank of England to get inflation under control and grow the economy”.But Prime Minister Boris Johnson will not make “major fiscal interventions” before leaving office next month, his spokesman said on Monday amid calls for immediate government action to tackle Britain’s cost-of-living crisis.Johnson, back at his desk after a five-day belated honeymoon with wife Carrie in Slovenia last week, has been criticised for being absent as the BoE last week warned of recession.His trip coincided with Zahawi also being away on holiday, as the central bank hiked interest rates by the biggest margin in nearly three decades in a bid to stem surging inflation.Johnson, who last month announced he would step down on September 6 following a slew of scandals, is set to hand power to either Liz Truss or Rishi Sunak after a summer-long Conservative leadership battle.Foreign Secretary Truss and Sunak — Zahawi’s predecessor as chancellor of the exchequer — have clashed over how to address the crisis.Truss plans an emergency budget to lower taxes and to review the independent BoE’s inflation-fighting mandate.But Sunak said tax cuts financed with more borrowing would force the bank to increase interest rates even more, insisting on the need to maintain fiscal rigour and tame the price pressures first.

Classified documents relating to nuclear weapons among the items FBI sought in Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence search, reports Washington Post.

Billionaire Samsung Boss, convicted in bribery case, gets Presidential Pardon, will be “reinstated” to give him a chance to “contribute to overcoming the economic crisis” of the country.

FBI agents condemn threats against agency after Trump raid

FBI Agents Association said Thursday that the surge of threats against them after the raid on the home of former president Donald Trump encouraged violence against law enforcement and was “unacceptable.”Conservative politicians and Trump himself bashed the Federal Bureau of Investigation as “corrupt” and “politicized” following the raid Monday, in which agents sought classified documents that Trump had retained in violation of rules on official records.That was followed by a surge of violent threats against the FBI and Justice Department on social media and in conservative chat rooms.“Special Agents and their families should never be threatened with violence, including for doing their jobs,” the association said in a statement.“The threats made recently contribute to an atmosphere where some have, or will, accept violence against law enforcement as appropriate. It is not,” it said.The statement was released shortly after Attorney General Merrick Garland said he himself had approved the unprecedented raid on a former president’s home.Garland called the attacks on the FBI “unfounded.”“I will not stand by silently when their integrity is unfairly attacked,” he said.After the raid Monday, Trump issued a statement saying his Mar-a-Lago home in Palm Beach, Florida was “under siege, raided and occupied by a large group of FBI agents.”“Such an assault could only take place in broken, Third World Countries,” Trump said.Hour Republican leader Kevin McCarthy accused the FBI and the Justice Department of “weaponized politicization.”Republican Senator Ted Cruz said the FBI had become “an attack dog to help the Democrats” and Republican Congressman Paul Gosar tweeted that “we must destroy the FBI.”Another fervent Trump supporter, Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, attacked the agency and spoke of “civil war.”“The FBI has gone rogue and is doing the dirty work of a communist regime,” she said on Twitter.“This is not a partisan or political issue,” the agents’ association said in their statement.“Calls for violence against law enforcement are unacceptable, and should be condemned by all leaders.”The statement also came after an armed man’s attack on the FBI’s office in Cincinnati, Ohio, on Thursday which turned into a pursuit of the suspect into the countryside, in which the man exchanged gunfire with law enforcement.Officials later said the situation was later contained, without providing details. The reason for the attack remained unclear.

I know the name of the guy, he was shot dead. Ricky Walter Shiffer is the name of the suspect who attempted to breach FBI office and was killed later.

Boston Children’s Hospital Now Offers “Gender Affirming Hysterectomy” Treatments

Boston’s Children’s Hospital Says Kids May Know They are Transgender as Early as Birth and Offers “Gender Affirming Hysterectomy” Treatments!! Really? I have to say that these people have the cheek to call me and other people conspiracy theorists when they are suffering from some mental illness. There is no way a baby that is born can think “ hey, I wanted to be a boy” a baby knows nothing much than food, it has no idea if it’s having a poo or a pee. These people who are going on about being women are insane.

In Australia, the Ukrainian president was called a terrorist.

Australian writer and director of the Center for Counter-Hegemonic Studies Tim Anderson said that the President of Ukraine uses the methods of the terrorist organization Al-Qaeda (a terrorist organization banned in the Russian Federation), striking at a nuclear power plant in Zaporozhye. These are the methods used by Islamic terrorists in the Syrian Arab Republic.”Zelensky ordered his NATO-backed forces to use kamikaze drones and artillery to strike at the Russian-controlled nuclear power plant in Zaporozhye, in order to then blame Russia“, he said.Earlier, in the period from August 5 to August 7, the AFU used the MLRS “Hurricane”, fragments from the shells of which fell about 400 meters from the operating power unit of the nuclear energy station. The Zaporozhye administration stated that Kiev was trying to strike at a storage facility with thousands of tons of nuclear waste.

What Was Covid Really About? Triggering A Multi-Trillion Dollar Global Debt Crisis. “Ramping up an Imperialist Strategy”?

“And thus it renders more and more evident the great central fact that the cause of the miserable condition of the working class is to be sought, not in these minor grievances, but in the capitalistic system itself.” Friedrich Engels, The Condition of the Working Class in England (1845) (preface to the English Edition, p.36)  

The IMF and World Bank have for decades pushed a policy agenda based on cuts to public services, increases in taxes paid by the poorest and moves to undermine labour rights and protections.

IMF ‘structural adjustment’ policies have resulted in 52% of Africans lacking access to healthcare and 83% having no safety nets to fall back on if they lose their job or become sick. Even the IMF has shown that neoliberal policies fuel poverty and inequality.

In 2021, an Oxfam review of IMF COVID-19 loans showed that 33 African countries were encouraged to pursue austerity policies. The world’s poorest countries are due to pay $43 billion in debt repayments in 2022, which could otherwise cover the costs of their food imports.

Oxfam and Development Finance International (DFI) have also revealed that 43 out of 55 African Union member states face public expenditure cuts totalling $183 billion over the next five years.

According to Prof Michel Chossudovsky of the Centre for Research on Globalization, the closure of the world economy (March 11, 2020 Lockdown imposed on more than 190 countries) has triggered an unprecedented process of global indebtedness. Governments are now under the control of global creditors in the post-COVID era.

What we are seeing is a de facto privatisation of the state as governments capitulate to the needs of Western financial institutions.

Moreover, these debts are largely dollar-denominated, helping to strengthen the US dollar and US leverage over countries.

It raises the question: what was COVID really about?Millions have been asking that question since lockdowns and restrictions began in early 2020. If it was indeed about public health, why close down the bulk of health services and the global economy knowing full well what the massive health, economic and debt implications would be?Why mount a military-style propaganda campaign to censor world-renowned scientists and terrorise entire populations and use the full force and brutality of the police to ensure compliance?These actions were wholly disproportionate to any risk posed to public health, especially when considering the way ‘COVID death’ definitions and data were often massaged and how PCR tests were misused to scare populations into submission.Prof Fabio Vighi of Cardiff University implies we should have been suspicious from the start when the usually “unscrupulous ruling elites” froze the global economy in the face of a pathogen that targets almost exclusively the unproductive (the over 80s).COVID was a crisis of capitalism masquerading as a public health emergency.Capitalism Capitalism needs to keep expanding into or creating new markets to ensure the accumulation of capital to offset the tendency for the general rate of profit to fall. The capitalist needs to accumulate capital (wealth) to be able to reinvest it and make further profits. By placing downward pressure on workers’ wages, the capitalist extracts sufficient surplus value to be able to do this.But when the capitalist is unable to sufficiently reinvest (due to declining demand for commodities, a lack of investment opportunities and markets, etc), wealth (capital) over accumulates, devalues and the system goes into crisis. To avoid crisis, capitalism requires constant growth, markets and sufficient demand.According to writer Ted Reese, the capitalist rate of profit has trended downwards from an estimated 43% in the 1870s to 17% in the 2000s. Although wages and corporate taxes have been slashed, the exploitability of labour was increasingly insufficient to meet the demands of capital accumulation.By late 2019, many companies could not generate sufficient profit. Falling turnover, limited cashflows and highly leveraged balance sheets were prevalent.Economic growth was weakening in the run up to the massive stock market crash in February 2020, which saw trillions more pumped into the system in the guise of ‘COVID relief’.To stave off crisis up until that point, various tactics had been employed.Credit markets were expanded and personal debt increased to maintain consumer demand as workers’ wages were squeezed. Financial deregulation occurred and speculative capital was allowed to exploit new areas and investment opportunities. At the same time, stock buy backs, the student debt economy, quantitative easing and massive bail outs and subsidies and an expansion of militarism helped to maintain economic growth.There was also a ramping up of an imperialist strategy that has seen indigenous systems of production abroad being displaced by global corporations and states pressurised to withdraw from areas of economic activity, leaving transnational players to occupy the space left open.While these strategies produced speculative bubbles and led to an overevaluation of assets and increased both personal and government debt, they helped to continue to secure viable profits and returns on investment.But come 2019, former governor of the Bank of England Mervyn King warned that the world was sleepwalking towards a fresh economic and financial crisis that would have devastating consequences. He argued that the global economy was stuck in a low growth trap and recovery from the crisis of 2008 was weaker than that after the Great Depression.King concluded that it was time for the Federal Reserve and other central banks to begin talks behind closed doors with politicians.That is precisely what happened as key players, including BlackRock, the world’s most powerful investment fund, got together to work out a strategy going forward. This took place in the lead up to COVID.Aside from deepening the dependency of poorer countries on Western capital, Fabio Vighi says lockdowns and the global suspension of economic transactions allowed the US Fed to flood the ailing financial markets (under the guise of COVID) with freshly printed money while shutting down the real economy to avoid hyperinflation. Lockdowns suspended business transactions, which drained the demand for credit and stopped the contagion.COVID provided cover for a multi-trillion-dollar bailout for the capitalist economy that was in meltdown prior to COVID. Despite a decade or more of ‘quantitative easing’, this new bailout came in the form of trillions of dollars pumped into financial markets by the US Fed (in the months prior to March 2020) and subsequent ‘COVID relief’.The IMF, World bank and global leaders knew full well what the impact on the world’s poor would be of closing down the world economy through COVID-related lockdowns.Yet they sanctioned it and there is now the prospect that in excess of a quarter of a billion more people worldwide will fall into extreme levels of poverty in 2022 alone.In April 2020, the Wall Street Journal stated the IMF and World Bank faced a deluge of aid requests from scores of poorer countriesseeking bailouts and loans from financial institutions with $1.2 trillion to lend.In addition to helping to reboot the financial system, closing down the global economy deliberately deepened poorer countries’ dependency on Western global conglomerates and financial interests.Lockdowns also helped accelerate the restructuring of capitalism that involves smaller enterprises being driven to bankruptcy or bought up by monopolies and global chains, thereby ensuring continued viable profits for Big Tech, the digital payments giants and global online corporations like Meta and Amazon and the eradication of millions of jobs.Although the effects of the conflict in Ukraine cannot be dismissed, with the global economy now open again, inflation is rising and causing a ‘cost of living’ crisis. With a debt-ridden economy, there is limited scope for rising interest rates to control inflation.But this crisis is not inevitable: current inflation is not only induced by the liquidity injected into the financial system but also being fuelled by speculation in food commodity markets and corporate greed as energy and food corporations continue to rake in vast profits at the expense of ordinary people.Resistance However, resistance is fertile.Aside from the many anti-restriction/pro-freedom rallies during COVID, we are now seeing a more strident trade unionism coming to the fore – in Britain at least – led by media savvy leaders like Mick Lynch, general secretary of the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT), who know how to appeal to the public and tap into widely held resentment against soaring cost of living rises.Teachers, health workers and others could follow the RMT into taking strike action.Lynch says that millions of people in Britain face lower living standards and the stripping out of occupational pensions. He adds:“COVID has been a smokescreen for the rich and powerful in this country to drive down wages as far as they can.”Just like a decade of imposed ‘austerity’ was used to achieve similar results in the lead up to COVID.The trade union movement should now be taking a leading role in resisting the attack on living standards and further attempts to run-down state-provided welfare and privatise what remains.The strategy to wholly dismantle and privatise health and welfare services seems increasingly likely given the need to rein in (COVID-related) public debt and the trend towards AI, workplace automisation and worklessness.This is a real concern because, following the logic of capitalism, work is a condition for the existence of the labouring classes. So, if a mass labour force is no longer deemed necessary, there is no need for mass education, welfare and healthcare provision and systems that have traditionally served to reproduce and maintain labour that capitalist economic activity has required.In 2019, Philip Alston, the UN rapporteur on extreme poverty, accused British government ministers of the “systematic immiseration of a significant part of the British population” in the decade following the 2008 financial crash.Alston stated:“As Thomas Hobbes observed long ago, such an approach condemns the least well off to lives that are ‘solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short’. As the British social contract slowly evaporates, Hobbes’ prediction risks becoming the new reality.”Post-COVID, Alston’s words carry even more weight.As this article draws to a close, news is breaking that Boris Johnson has resigned as prime minister. A remarkable PM if only for his criminality, lack of moral foundation and double standards – also applicable to many of his cronies in government.With this in mind, let’s finish where we began.“I have never seen a class so deeply demoralised, so incurably debased by selfishness, so corroded within, so incapable of progress, as the English bourgeoisie…For it nothing exists in this world, except for the sake of money, itself not excluded. It knows no bliss save that of rapid gain, no pain save that of losing gold.In the presence of this avarice and lust of gain, it is not possible for a single human sentiment or opinion to remain untainted.” Friedrich Engels, The Condition of the Working Class in England(1845), p.275*Note to readers: Please click the share buttons above or below.

BREAKING NEWS, Putin takes on Big Pharma, Aeroplane crash, Zelenko seriously ill, Tess Lawrie report.

Plane crash Dr Madej

Dr Madej had just texted me on Thursday to state that she would not be doing public speaking events for several months as the medical board is coming after her full force.

On Tuesday, Dr Carrie Madej was involved in a small plane crash alongside her boyfriend. Both are in the hospital with multiple fractures, and her boyfriend has a broken back and fractured skull.

Dr Madej’s website is hosting a zoom prayer this evening at 6:30 PM EST. There are 100 spaces open to anyone who would like to pray. They are also streaming it on Instagram.

Dr Carrie Madej Involved In Plane Crash – Pray 🙏

“Dr. Carrie Madej was involved in a small plane crash alongside her boyfriend. Both are in the hospital with multiple fractures, and her boyfriend has a broken back and fractured skull.

Dr Madej is in ICU and she is expected to be released possibly on Tuesday.”

WARM SPRINGS, Ga. — The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating a plane crash in Meriwether County on Sunday.

A pilot and passenger crashed at Roosevelt Memorial Airport in Warm Springs after reporting engine trouble. The two landed in the field north of the airport, according to the FAA.

It happened around 2:15 p.m. The FAA said they were flying a single-engine Piper PA-24.

According to Michael Watson, the chairman of the Meriwether County Airport Authority, the flight was on the way from St. Petersburg, Florida, near Tampa, to Newnan-Coweta County Airport, when it experienced an engine issue as the plane started its descent. The flight was diverted south to Warm Springs, but crashed. Flight tracking website Flight Aware shows the path of the flight before the crash.

The FAA is working with the National Transportation Safety Board to determine a cause for the crash. Neither agency would provide specifics of the investigation.

Electronically tag innocent people

Regular readers will know I hold out no hope that petitions will make a difference. However, I do think they can give us a mutual boost that we’re not alone.

In any case, while I recommend you sign the petition, even more, important is that you become aware of just how terrible these laws about to come into force are. How utterly without precedent they are. Democracy has ended. It’s illegal to protest if at any time the authorities decide they don’t want you demonstrating.

Best wishes Mike Yeadon.

To: Priti Patel, Home Secretary

Don’t electronically tag innocent people for attending protests

Update on Dr. Zelenko:

As it was mentioned last night he has been intubated in the ICU after being put through a very intense and extreme last-hope type of treatment yesterday. They were able to get about 2/3 of the treatment finished before they had to stop due to extremely high blood pressure from the procedure. He started to stabilize throughout last night.

This morning things changed quickly and it looked like we were about to lose Zev for sure everyone that was there prayed over him intensely for a miracle. Then that miracle happened and he started to recover, which seemed impossible. This SHOCKED the doctors and nurses as they didn’t understand how it was happening!

He is still not in the clear yet but I thought you would all like to hear this update… please continue to pray for Zev!

Also, I have more info to share that is VERY positive but I want to wait and make sure it’s ok to go out first.

The vaccines damage fertility.

Firstly before Tess’ article, I just want to reiterate what you have read above is by no means a coincidence with Dr Madej. Just like the 74 spontaneous combustible food processing plants in the States.

Is this part of a depopulation agenda or ‘just’ a terrible mistake?

Given everything we know about the pandemic – that Covid is eminently treatable, the vaccines are neither safe nor effective, and millions have been injured as a direct result – why is the vaccine roll-out being allowed to continue?

More to the point, why were vaccines even rolled out in the first place?

There are many theories, ranging from the sinister to the plain venal. One of these is that a global elite believes that the planet is overcrowded and has implemented the pandemic and associated vaccine roll-out as part of a depopulation agenda.

It sounds the stuff of movies, and yet there is a precedent. As Dr Andrew Wakefield’s poignant new documentary, Infertility: A Diabolical Agenda, explains, the World Health Organisation spent many years researching and developing vaccines that would render recipients infertile. This line of research came from concern that populations were increasing at an unsustainable rate – and as the documentary reveals, the WHO saw fit to implement its infertility vaccines without the informed consent of the women and girls who received them.

If you haven’t already, please do watch the documentary and share it with others so that we can start discussing these matters together and in the open.

Many concerns have been raised over the impact of Covid-19 vaccines on fertility. The original Pfizer biodistribution studies (English translation here) reveal that the lipid nanoparticle (LNP) used to encapsulate the mRNA does not remain at the injection site as stated but travels to major organs including the spleen, liver, adrenal glands, the testes and the ovaries.

What is the impact of having toxic LNP accumulate in the reproductive organs? That’s the problem with inadequately tested medical interventions: we have no idea. However, data regarding reproductive health and fertility continue to mount.

Now, a new peer-reviewed study, accepted for publication in the journal Andrology, reveals the Covid-19 vaccines are harming male fertility.

Why is the WHO not investigating this?

We need to call these regulators to account – but we also need to ensure we ourselves do not fall for the lie that humanity is nothing more than a scourge on this planet. Instead, we can remember who we are: creative, intelligent, inspired beings with the capacity to dream up brilliant solutions to complex problems, and to care for our planet and each other.

Rather than passive consumers, we are active participants in the glorious web of life, and human fertility is to be treasured as the miracle that it is. If there is even the hint of a medical intervention damaging people’s fertility it must be halted. The vaccines must be halted. In the meantime, no more injections for healthy people. Until we can know they are completely safe,

Tess Lawrie

However, I have read that UK scientists have now blamed infertility, miscarriages and baby deaths on. Drumroll, please. “ Climate Change “

Putin vs Big Pharma: The ultimate smackdown

Is Putin plotting to purge the pill peddlers? If so, we have some suggestions

Is Vladimir Putin preparing to cleanse Russia of Big Pharma shills (his entire cabinet)? Some seem to think so and there is certainly evidence that some kind of anti-shill crackdown is coming. Let’s explore this intriguing news item together.

Take the wheel, TASS:

Russian President Vladimir Putin has criticized foreign drug companies for pushing their products through local medical institutions and via doctors in Russia using their deep-pocketed resources.

“Unfortunately, foreign pharmaceutical companies attracted some heads of our medical institutions and medical workers in 30 regions. And they pushed their medicines [on to the Russian market], paying quite a lot of money for it. We saw that under just one scheme they doled out 500 million [rubles],” he said at a meeting with Yury Chikhanchin Head of the Federal Financial Monitoring Service.

Putin noted that such practice also exists in the EU and worldwide.

“They do it everywhere. They do it in Europe and overseas too. This is how they operate,” he said.

Chikhanchin responded by saying his agency was working with the FSB to root out gratuitous Big Pharma grifting.

First of all: At the very least Putin deserves a golf clap for saying rude things about Big Pharma. No one loses points for doing that. So we salute you, Vladimir Putin. Keep it up.

At the same time: talk is cheap. If you’re going to launch a Novichok rocket at Big Pharma for “pushing their products through local medical institutions” (as TASS summarized) in 30 regions… this doesn’t exactly sound like the cleansing enema that Russia so desperately needs.

If Putin is sincere about expelling degenerate pill pushers from Russia, how far is he willing to go? Because in order to have a meaningful impact he’ll have to go pretty far. All the way, actually.

You need to cut the head off the snake. And the snake lives in Moscow. The snake has wrapped its slimly reptile-bod around various federal ministries. The snake is suffocating Russia at the highest levels of government.

That’s just a fact.

By

In the end, there can be only one.

Is Vladimir Putin preparing to cleanse Russia of Big Pharma shills (his entire cabinet)? Some seem to think so and there is certainly evidence that some kind of anti-shill crackdown is coming. Let’s explore this intriguing news item together.

Maybe it’s time for a “performance review” at the Ministry of Health? (source)

If tomorrow the FSB announces it bagged the deputy director of a village clinic in Potato-Patch, Yakutia, this will not qualify as a successful crackdown on Big Pharma’s nefarious influence in Russia. It will qualify as a massive fail.

So which Big Pharma Strumpets should be Gitmo’d by the FSB? We’re so glad you asked.

All of the Important Russians who partied with Tedros and Big Pharma at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum — straight to the gulag for some desperately needed rehabilitation.

And of course, no Big Pharma smackdown would be complete without frog-marching Madame Arbidol to the most remote Siberian penal colony. Sorry, we don’t make the rules.

Edward SlavsquatRussia’s selfless COVID-pill profiteers: Heroes of public healthNine out of ten doctors agree: in order to survive cold-like symptoms, sometimes it is necessary to permanently damage your internal organs with antiviral drugs.

Russia’s largest pharmaceutical firms also need to be put in the crosshairs. As we saw with Sputnik V, Russian drug companies enthusiastically collaborate with western pharmaceuticals to create horrific poisons for the masses. And the Russian government is invested in this gross cooperation — which is slightly discouraging?

Furthermore, the worst medicine-related grifting involves government contracts. And also: a lot of the pill peddling and unethical contracting is done legally.

As Tsargrad explained in an articleunpacking Putin’s comments:

Putin demanded action against Western pharmaceutical companies that bribe our doctors. Tsargrad examined the problem and found out that this bribery is most often completely legal. To change the situation, you need to change the laws. […]

The peculiarity of Russia lies in the active participation of the state in the market of medical services. It is more profitable to get a big contract and relax than to work painstakingly with doctors, although this is not neglected either. Therefore, our “favorite” form of illegal cooperation of pharmaceutical companies with the heads of institutions and officials is to ensure victory in the auction.

So, for example, at the end of 2019, the head doctor of the republican oncological dispensary of the Ministry of Health of the Republic of North Ossetia-Alania was caught red-handed while receiving a bribe on an especially large scale. A few days before that, the head physician of the Penza Regional Oncology Center (and soon the director of the pharmaceutical company who gave him a bribe) received five years of a real term. There are other precedents, many of them. […]

Of course, the problem raised by Chikhanchin and Putin concerns not only Western companies — the domestic pharmaceutical industry has adopted the worst habits of its “big brothers” and interacts with medical personnel no less successfully.

That sums up the situation pretty well, we think. 

We welcome any and all efforts to make Russian healthcare less scammy and more healthy. 

But let’s not forget that after two years of “public health measures” — two years of non-stop grifting and murderous lies — Russia now finds itself in a very, very deep hole — a hole dug by the Russian government. Go figure.

We should add that there are rumors on the Russian interwebz that several high ranking officials are under investigation as part of this alleged Big Pharma crackdown. We haven’t found anything substantial to support this claim but… fingers crossed?

Let’s see what the FSB cooks up. It’s 2022. Anything is possible. Even atonement.

BREAKING News from Ukraine

FM Sergey Lavrov’s interview with the BBC TV channel

🔹 We announced a special military operation after being left with no other means to make it clear to the West that it is engaging in criminal activity by dragging Ukraine into NATO, by coddling and doting on a neo-Nazi regime, whose president Vladimir Zelensky said in September 2021 (you didn’t tell your viewers about it, did you?) that, if someone in Ukraine feels Russian, they should leave for Russia.

🔹 Today, the Ukrainian regime is attacking civilians with your Western weapons just like they did in 2014 when the putschists came to power when the centre of Lugansk was bombed by aircraft and 50 people were burned alive in Odesa.

🔹 I think that NATO is a threat. We are told not to worry, that Ukraine’s accession to NATO wouldn’t pose a threat to the Russian Federation. With all due respect for our colleagues from the North Atlantic Alliance, I must say that Russia has the right to decide for itself what threatens its security and what does not.

The Commander of the German Air Force called on NATO to be ready to use nuclear weapons against Russia because of Ukraine

If we want to have a secure position, then we need the means of destruction and the political will to implement nuclear deterrence, if necessary,” Ingo Gerhartz said at a NATO maritime symposium in Kiel.

Also, the commander of the Luftwaffe of the Bundeswehr urged Putin “not to compete with Germany.”

Militiaman from the Pyatnashka Brigade, Ervan Castel: “To fire heavy artillery at Donetsk,

when it is not one or two shells, but 100, 200, 300 shells a day, is a war crime, state terrorism.”

There are no military facilities in Donetsk, there are no hostilities here. When a military facility in a city is bombed, unfortunately there may be civilian casualties around that facility. But now we are not in such conditions.

There is not a single mitigating circumstance that could justify what Kyiv has been doing for the past eight years.”

Turkish cargo ship leaves Ukraine’s Mariupol after grain talks with Moscow: Ankara

A Turkish cargo ship on Wednesday left Ukraine’s Russian-occupied port of Mariupol after a round of “constructive” grain talks with Moscow, the Turkish defence ministry said, without specifying if it was carrying wheat.

“The meeting in Moscow gave its first concrete result,” the Turkish ministry said in a statement.

“Just a few hours after the end of the long meeting, the Turkish dry cargo ship, which had been waiting for days, left the Ukrainian port.”

Denmark offers fourth Covid vaccine dose to over-50s

Denmark’s government said Wednesday the country will begin offering a fourth dose of the Covid-19 vaccine to risk groups next week and all over-50s after the summer, amid the emergence of a new variant.

“Authorities believe the new variant is more infectious than the previous one, which is why we are acting now… to protect the most vulnerable and the elderly”, Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen told reporters.

She said those most at risk would be able to receive a fourth dose starting next week.

The Omicron subvariant BA.5 now accounts for 59 per cent of new cases in Denmark, which has registered more than 3.1 million infections since the beginning of the pandemic in a country of 5.8 million people.

Denmark, which paused its vaccination campaign at the end of April, said the campaign would scale up after the summer.

“Health authorities have recommended a revaccination of 2.5 million Danes in the autumn”, Fredriksen said.

The fourth dose will be offered to all over-50s as of October 1. Around 62 per cent of Danes have already received the third dose.

The Scandinavian country lifted all of its corona restrictions in February and has no plans to reintroduce them.

“Our strategy is a society without restrictions, that is why we need to prevent the illness” more than the spread of the infection, the head of Denmark’s National Board of Health, Soren Brostrom, told reporters at the same press conference.

He urged people with symptoms to test themselves and isolate if their test is positive.

This will be an endless Cash cow for the pharmaceutical companies.

Why monkeypox may soon get a new name

Monkeypox may soon have a new name after scientists called for a change to dispel stereotypes of Africa is seen as a crucible of disease.

The World Health Organization announced last week that it is “working with partners and experts from around the world on changing the name of monkeypox virus, its clades and the disease it causes.”

Monkeypox’s clades, which are different branches of the virus’ family tree, have been particularly controversial because they are named after African regions.

Last year the WHO officially named Covid-19 variants after Greek letters to avoid stigmatising the places where they were first detected.

Just days before the WHO announced it would change monkeypox’s name, a group of 29 scientists wrote a letter saying there is an “urgent need for a non-discriminatory and non-stigmatising nomenclature” for the virus.

The letter, signed by several prominent African scientists, called for the names of the “West African” and the “Central African” or “Congo Basin” monkeypox clades to be changed.

Until a few months ago, monkeypox had largely been confined to West and Central Africa.

But since May, a new version has spread across much of the world. The letter’s signatories suggested naming this version as a new clade, giving it “the placeholder label hMPXV” — for human monkeypox virus.

Out of the more than 2,100 monkeypox cases recorded globally this year, 84 per cent were in Europe, 12 per cent in the Americas and just three per cent in Africa, according to the WHO’s latest update last week.

‘Not a monkey disease’

Oyewale Tomori, a virologist at Redeemer’s University in Nigeria, said he supported changing the name of monkeypox’s clades.

“But even the name monkeypox is aberrant. It is not the right name,” he told AFP.

“If I were a monkey, I would protest because it’s not a monkey disease.”

The virus was named after it was first discovered among monkeys in a Danish lab in 1958, but humans have mostly contracted the virus from rodents.

The letter pointed out that “nearly all” outbreaks in Africa were sparked by people catching the virus from animals — not from other people.

But the current outbreak “is unusual in that it is purely spreading through human to human transmission,” said Olivier Restif, an epidemiologist at the University of Cambridge.

“So, it is fair to say that the current outbreak has very little to do with Africa, in the same way, that the Covid-19 waves and variants we’re still being battered by have little to do with the Asian bats from which the virus originally came a few years ago.”

– ‘Stigmatisation of Africa’ –

Moses John Bockarie of Sierra Leone’s Njala University said he agreed with the call to change monkeypox’s name.

“Monkeys are usually associated with the global south, especially Africa,” he wrote in The Conversation.

“In addition, there is a long dark history of black people being compared to monkeys. No disease nomenclature should provide a trigger for this.”

Restif said it was “important to highlight that this debate is part of a larger issue with the stigmatisation of Africa as a source of disease.”

“We’ve seen it most strikingly with HIV in the 1980s, with Ebola during the 2013 outbreak and again with Covid-19 and the reactions to the so-called ‘South African variants’,” he told AFP.

An African press group has also expressed “its displeasure against media outlets using images of black people alongside stories of the monkeypox outbreak in North America and the United Kingdom.

“We condemn the perpetuation of this negative stereotype that assigns calamity to the African race and privilege or immunity to other races,” The Foreign Press Association, Africa tweeted last month.

Restif pointed out that the “old stock photographs of African patients” used by Western media usually depict severe symptoms.

But the monkeypox spreading around the world “is much milder, which partly explains how easily it gets transmitted,” he said.

The WHO will announce the new monkeypox names “as soon as possible”, its chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said.

The UN agency is also holding an emergency committee meeting on Thursday to assess whether the outbreak represents a public health emergency of international concern — the highest alarm it can sound.

Don’t call him Boris – he’s not your pal, he’s a cult

I WASN’T particularly interested in ‘Partygate’, save as a symptom of the more pernicious evil of lockdown.

Nor am I anything other than amused by the typical and everyday Westminster self-indulgences, examples of which have recently included confidence votes, expense accounts, leg-crossing, the resignation of an ‘ethics adviser’ (which is sort of an oxymoron) and leadership speculation.

It’s all the usual political navel-gazing in which the protagonists don’t seem to appreciate that they are not political leaders, but bad actors in a particularly tedious soap opera. Albeit one which they force the rest of us to watch.

The last two years have seen the Establishment sew a patchwork of trivia. The UK political to-and-fro has confirmed a disengagement from a wider global agenda. From the globalist perspective, the obsessions of the UK political classes amount to little more than a concatenation of useful, localised distractions. Some of us see that as obvious; many are inhaling the sand.

The Field Generals and puppeteers of the World Economic Forum and the World Health Organisation smirk with condescension at the Captain Mainwaring manoeuvres of Johnson and his cohort of Cabinet mediocrity.

But there is one question – a significant one – which has been a constant throughout the miserable tyranny of the last two years: By what dark alchemy has Prime Minister Johnson suckered the country into calling him ‘Boris’? How has he managed to generate this expedient and fake familiarity with the UK public?

It’s all in the name.

Names – in particular Christian names – have an intrinsic philosophical resonance and etiquette which governs (or is used to govern) their application.

In the second chapter of his beautiful intellectual autobiography Gentle Regrets, Roger Scruton writes about ‘how I found my name, which he recounts as a genuine voyage of intellectual discovery.

He notices that your name doesn’t just allow you to be picked out in the world, but can shape both your response to that world and the world’s response to you. To change your name, to write under a pseudonym, to anonymise yourself – all of these involve subtle manipulations of how you wish the world to see you. Your name is a matter of constant review, he suggests.

To fiddle with your name verges on pride. It’s a form of manipulation. Manipulations seldom come without moral and ethical consequences.

You need look no further than the cesspool of social media to see this. People who can be perfectly engaging in ‘real life’ become proficient in the construction of alternative selves. The Clark Kent who sits benignly at the breakfast table consults, making sure the kids have completed the homework, his Twitter feed and is transformed into a malign online Superman.

Your name is precious because it is a gift.

And like all jewels, it requires constant protection. We now inhabit a world in which strangers feel free to help themselves to that gift. How many times have you met the following? A stranger, often in a position of some authority, reaches into your private life and plucks out your Christian name. Uninvited.

A civil society is one based on civility. Civility is a complicated thing. It involves varieties of intangible attachments. It requires manners. These are not matters easily defined, but because they are beyond the scope of language it does not mean that they are unimportant.

The point about manners is that they are felt, not codified.

The casual appropriation of the forename by a stranger is an act of aggression. It serves to unpick the settled order. Not because your name is private, but because it is personal. And it’s up to me to offer it, not you to grab it.

Johnson has reversed the etiquette and has made of the entire country a vulgar familiarity. That we call him ‘Boris’ (not that I do) has allowed him to develop a cult of personality, one which masks what I suspect is a deeper dysfunctionality. It suits him that you pretend you know him.

But you don’t know him. And every time you call him ‘Boris’, you distance yourself from the real Johnson and facilitate his slow-motion coup against the rest of us.

So next time you find yourself calling him that, I urge you, as we Irish say, to ‘catch yourself on’.

Our politicians should never be familiars. They need holding at arm’s length.

BREAKING NEWS REPORT ON WHAT MATTERS TO YOU.

France lockdown over heatwave..

Officials in France banned people from attending concerts, outdoor gatherings, and events due to safety concerns over a heatwave.

“Everyone now faces a health risk,” official Fabienne Buccio told France Bleu radio, after announcing the regional restrictions around Bordeaux.

Outdoor events – including, ironically, annual ‘Resistance’ celebrations – are banned until the officials declare the heatwave is over. They’re even restricting some indoor events that don’t have air conditioning.

However, private weddings are still allowed.

Temperatures reportedly hit 40 degrees Celsius on Thursday, and the heatwave is expected to peak on Saturday.

Nonetheless, rather than let people take responsibility for themselves – to hydrate or stay home – French officials are comfortable deciding for them.

Indeed, democratic governments seem comfortable stripping citizens’ freedoms for safety as of late. From COVID lockdowns to climate.

Recently, The Counter Signal reported that climate change lockdowns were likely on the horizon.

For example, unelected IGOs recently advised the British government to outright ban driving on Sundays to curb rising gas prices and address an energy crisis.

The advisement came from the International Energy Agency (IEA) as part of a 10-point plan, central to which is achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.

And this isn’t as conspiratorial as it might sound.

For example, while speaking on behalf of the World Health Organization (WHO), International Council of Nurses CEO Howard Catton claimed that climate change is the “grandmother of all health threats,” suggesting that the WHO may get involved with climate change-related health risks, like heatwaves, in the future.

Moreover, Nicole Schwab, the daughter of World Economic Forum founder Klaus Schwab) recently said she wants governments to take advantage of COVID infrastructure and policies to fight climate change.

Canada hasn’t even dropped its COVID travel restrictions, and already the government has elevated monkeypox to Level 2 status

, which means travellers may be subject to “isolation,” i.e., mandatory quarantine.

As per a Health Canada announcement, “In the current outbreak, those at risk of infection are those who have had close or intimate contact with a person who has monkeypox.”

“During your travel, you may be subject to procedures at your destination put in place to limit the spread of monkeypox, such as isolation, should you become infected. You may have limited access to timely and appropriate health care should you become ill, and may experience delays in returning home.”

This announcement also suggests that, much like COVID, the Canadian government plans on utilizing COVID infrastructure to track individuals suspected of having contacted those with confirmed monkeypox infections.

Health Canada continues, saying the federal government is now working with provincial and international governments to monitor the spread of monkeypox, even though cases remain low and monkeypox isn’t transmitted easily.

They are also recommending the use of personal protective equipment while travelling, which may mean additional mask mandates down the road.

Besides being one of the first countries to jump the gun on quarantining those who come down with a case of monkeypox, Canada is also one of the first countries (if not the first) to begin vaccinating people for monkeypox using the smallpox vaccine following the recent outbreak.

Quebec was the first to begin vaccinating for monkeypox, despite having only 25 cases in the province at the time.

As of yesterday (half a month later), there are now supposedly 85 cases, and over 500 Quebecers have received the smallpox vaccine.

Health officials also appear to be focused almost exclusively on monitoring gay men due to the spread believed to be occurring during sexual intercourse between individuals who attended a Spanish Pride festival — though monkeypox isn’t classified as a sexually-transmitted disease.

“We’re seeing the chain of transmission mainly in social networks in men who have sex with men,” said Montreal’s medical officer, Genevieve Bergeron.

It isn’t clear whether the government plans on tracking heterosexuals, too, or if it’s just gay men being targeted during Pride month.

Yet another food processing plant has spontaneously caught fire

— this time it’s a frozen pizza factory in Portage County, Wisconsin.

An American Red Cross report says they rushed to provide food and water for the more than 70 firefighters from nearly two dozen departments that were required to put out the fire early Monday morning.

According to Stevens Point Journal, the fire was first reported at roughly 9 am, with billowing smoke spreading out several kilometres east and northwest. Some departments cleared the scene at 4:30 pm, but the fire wasn’t completely extinguished until 8:45 pm, nearly 12 hours later.

The Fire District says the fire began in the compressor room for the refrigeration and stemmed from a problem that arose during maintenance. No employees were injured.

This isn’t the first — and likely won’t be the last fire at a food processing plant. Indeed, there have been several in just the last few months.

But it’s not just food processing plants catching fire that’s troubling, especially during a time of food inflation. Poultry at meat producers is being destroyed at an alarming rate, usually due to barn and factory fires or avian flu.

In early April, 46,000 turkeys had to be killed in Barron, Wisconsin, due to an avian flu outbreak.

Another flock of 53,000 in Beadle County, South Dakota, had to be killed that same month.

On May 3, 13,800 chickens had to be destroyed at an Oklahoma farm for the same reason.

72,300 chickens had to be killed in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, just a week later.

And there are several more instances.

A report commissioned by the United Kingdom (UK) government says the entire country will need to ban most air travel within ten years

and all air travel by 2050 to abide by impossibly lofty climate change laws.

“In her last significant act as Prime Minister, Theresa May changed the UK’s Climate Change Act to commit us to eliminating all greenhouse gas emissions in the UK by 2050. This decision is based on good climate science, was a response to a great wave of social protest and has been replicated in 60 other countries already,” the Absolute Zero report commissioned by the UK government explains.

According to the authors of the report, the only way that the UK government can meet their Absolute Zero obligations is to phase out all air travel, implementing an outright ban in 2050 until such a time as the government can conceive of a means of producing planes that produce zero greenhouse gases at any point during an aircraft’s production or use.

It shouldn’t need to be stated, but this is impossible.

Nonetheless, the authors say that “All airports except Heathrow, Glasgow and Belfast [will] close” between 2020-2029 and “All remaining airports [will] close” by 2050.

The authors continue, saying that under the current legislation, the following changes to daily life will need to be taken as all will be illegal in 2050: stop using aeroplanes; end all shipping; take the train, not the car; rideshare; use an electric vehicle; reduce energy consumption, including and especially heating; reduce fertilizer use; reduce cement and steel use and imports, etc.

The authors say that progressively limiting red meat consumption will also be necessary, as lamb and beef will be outlawed in the UK by 2050.

“In addition, obeying the law of our Climate Change Act requires that we stop doing anything that causes emissions regardless of its energy source. This requires that we stop eating beef and lamb – ruminants who release methane as they digest grass – and already many people have started to switch to more vegetarian diets,” the report reads.

This is quite an astounding proposal, as the authors say that under the climate change legislation, all fertilizer use will need to be “greatly reduced,” as will all processed foods, and the total energy required to cook or transport food must be reduced by 60 per cent of today’s levels.

So, the UK will not produce meat, will not use fertilizer to produce vegetables, will reduce other food imports to avoid greenhouse gas emissions, and will not produce or import processed food as a substitute.

It isn’t clear what, if anything, the authors and the government expect the people of the United Kingdom will eat in 2050. By all accounts, this appears to be a policy of misery and death.

French President Emmanuel Macron and his allies were scrambling for a way out of political deadlock Monday

after losing their parliamentary majority in a stunning blow to the president and his reform plans.

Macron’s Ensemble (Together) coalition emerged as the largest party in Sunday’s National Assembly vote but was dozens of seats short of keeping the parliamentary majority it had enjoyed for the last five years.

Surges on the left and the far right destroyed the dominant position of Macron’s deputies who, for the past five years, had backed the president’s policies without fail.

Turnout was low, with the abstention rate recorded at 53.77 per cent.

– ‘A slap’ –

The left-leaning Liberation daily called the result a “slap in the face” for Macron, while the conservative Le Figaro said he was now “faced with an ungovernable France“.

Macron’s allies may now seek a majority by forming deals with other parties on the right, stirring up turmoil not seen in French politics for decades.

The election saw the new left-wing alliance NUPES make gains to become the main opposition force with 127 seats, according to the Interior Ministry.

But it is unclear if the coalition of Socialists, Communists, Greens and the hard-left France Unbowed will remain a united bloc in the National Assembly.

Meanwhile the far-right under Marine Le Pen posted the best legislative performance in its history, becoming the strongest single opposition party with 89 seats, up from eight in the outgoing chamber.

A confident Le Pen said her party would demand to chair the National Assembly’s powerful finance commission, as is tradition for the biggest opposition party.

“The country is not ungovernable, but it’s not going to be governed the way Emmanuel Macron wanted,” Le Pen told reporters Monday.

Hard-left firebrand Jean-Luc Melenchon, who leads the NUPES alliance, said he would bring a motion of no confidence against Macron’s Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne as soon as parliament convenes in July.

Borne, who was elected to parliament in her first-ever political race, was nonetheless seen as vulnerable as Macron faces a new cabinet shake-up after several of his top allies lost their seats.

His health and environment ministers lost their seats and by tradition will have to resign, as did the parliament speaker and the head of Macron’s parliament group.

“We will see in the coming hours, but for now the prime minister remains the prime minister,” government spokeswoman Olivia Gregoire told France Inter radio Monday.

“I fear that the country is paralysed,” she added.

– ‘Turning point’ –

The outcome severely tarnished Macron’s April presidential election victory when he defeated Le Pen, becoming the first French president to win a second term in over two decades.

“It’s a turning point for his image of invincibility,” said Bruno Castres, a researcher at the Centre for Political Research of Sciences Po.

The options available to Macron, who has yet to publicly comment on the result, range from seeking to form a new coalition alliance, passing legislation based on ad hoc agreements to even calling new elections.

His Together alliance won 244 seats, far short of the 289 needed for an overall majority.

“The root of the presidential party is total,” Melenchon told supporters.

A prominent MP from Melenchon’s party, Alexis Corbiere, said Macron’s plan to raise the French retirement age to 65 had now been “sunk”.

Macron had hoped to stamp his second term with an ambitious programme of tax cuts, welfare reform and raising the retirement age. All that is now in question.

“It will be much more difficult to govern,” said Dominique Rousseau, professor of law at Paris Pantheon-Sorbonne University.

– ‘Imagination needed’ –

There could now potentially be weeks of political deadlock as the president seeks to reach out to new parties.

The most likely option would be an alliance with the Republicans, the traditional party of the French right, which has 61 MPs.

LR president Christian Jacob however made clear there would be no easy partnership, saying his party intended to “stay in opposition”.

Economy Minister Bruno Le Maire admitted “a lot of imagination will be needed” from the Macron’s party in what Le Figaro said was “a jump into the unknown”.

In a rare spot of good news for the president, Europe Minister Clement Beaune and Public Service Minister Stanislas Guerini — both young pillars of his party — won tight battles for their seats.

On the left, Rachel Keke, a former cleaning lady who campaigned for better working conditions at her hotel, was also elected, defeating Macron’s former sports minister Roxana Maracineanu.

We now know that is false.

Male blood donor 66 was turned away for not answering if he was pregnant or not.

66-year-old man who’s been donating blood since he was 18 was told by staff they cannot accept his blood because he refused to answer if he was pregnant. The question was added to promote inclusivity.

What is this world coming to when people start believing that men can physically get pregnant. What sort of mental health problems do these people have? There must be something broken inside.

Who started the war between Russia and Ukraine?

Zelensky Biden’s a puppet

SCE Reports Reveal Ukraine Started Shelling The Donbas Nine Days Before Russia’s ‘Special Military Operation’

The Biden Administration, U.S. political officials, and the corporate media are lying to the American public and pushing into World War III.

This is a copy and paste report.

All of my articles on the Ukraine-Russia War — Part I, Part II, and Part III. American history is replete with examples of politicians, the corporate media, and the military-industrial complex using lies, pretences, and propaganda to sell a war to a public that would otherwise be hesitant to send their sons and daughters off to fight on foreign soil. President Lyndon B. Johnson lied about the Gulf of Tonkin to justify American military intervention in Vietnam. President George H.W. Bush used a fabricated story of Iraqi soldiers ripping babies out of incubators to start the Gulf War. President George W. Bush lied about “weapons of mass destruction”.From “Remember the Maine”, to the sinking of the Lusitania, to the Syrian gas attacks, the last century is filled with example after example of the United States government lying to its citizens to justify new wars. In all of these examples, the corporate press acted as dutiful stenographers of the military-industrial complex hypnotizing the American people with lies, deception, and propaganda. If the adage is true that the first causality of war is the truth then it should follow that the first battle between Russia and Ukraine was also won with lies. To turn this passion into a career, I need your support: subscribers who sign up for $5 a month will enable me to do this work full-time and empower us to reach an ever-expanding audience. subscribe is important to remember that the armed conflict in eastern Ukraine started in 2014 after the Obama administration and U.S. Congress members installed a new government in Ukraine, in what the head of the “private CIA” firm Stratfor called “the most blatant coup in history.” In response to the U.S.-backed coup, the Luhansk and Donetsk regions in the Donbas held a referendum on seceding from Ukraine, in which 96% of Luhansk and 89% of Donetskvoted for the creation of two new self-described independent republics in eastern Ukraine. Moscow said the vote reflected the “will of the people,” but the European Union called the elections “illegal and illegitimate“, which quickly turned violent and descended into an all-out conflict between the Ukrainian military and Russian-backed separatist forces of Luhansk and Donetsk. Between 2014 and 2022 the War in Donbaskilled an estimated 14,000 people, forcing millions of people to flee the region and turning the conflict zone into one of the world’s most mine-contaminated areas. The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) has had observers on the ground monitoring the situation in Donbas since the outbreak of open conflict began in 2014. The OSCE has been the only international civilian observer mission allowed to collect information from both sides of the contact line, and its data, while incomplete, remains the best available.OSCE's Ukraine observer mission Who we are | OSCESource: OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine OSCE observer mission provides maps in daily reports documenting the location of ceasefire violations and explosions along the contact line between the Ukrainian military and the Donbas republics. These maps clearly show that Ukraine began artillery strikes against the Donbas republics on February 16th, 2022. In other words, Ukraine began shelling the independent republics of Donetsk and Luhansk nine days before Russia announced its ‘special military operation’ in Ukraine. While the western corporate media remained completely silent, explosions documented by the OSCE increased from 76 on February 15th, to 316 on February 16th, to 654 on February 17th, and to 1,413 on February 18th. When you look carefully at the daily maps of these explosions, it is clear that the vast majority of explosions occurred on the Russian separatist side of the ceasefire line.Feb 14: 174 ceasefire violations, 41 explosions Feb 15: 153 ceasefire violations, 76 explosions Feb 16: 509 ceasefire violations, 316 explosionsFeb 17: 870 ceasefire violations, 654 explosionsFeb 18: 1,566 ceasefire violations, 1,413 explosions Feb 19-20: 3,231 ceasefire violations, 2,026 explosionsFeb 21: 1,927 ceasefire violations, 1,481 explosionsFeb 21: Russia recognizes the independence of Donetsk and LuhanskFeb 22: 1,710 ceasefire violations, 1,420 explosions Feb 24: Russia launches ‘special military operation’

PLEASE READ THE BILL AND SHARE IT ON SOCIAL MEDIA

PARENTS:

Below is the link to the new school bill that the government want to make law. If you do not read this and try stopping it, then you will regret the day it comes into force.

As a parent myself in Wales, I can’t see if this is for the whole of Great Britain or just England. It does keep saying England but we must still fight this bill for our English children.

The government are trying to slip bill after bill through whilst we are distracted with Russia and Ukraine, China and Taiwan and Covid and MonkeyPox ( Which has now been called racist 🙈🙈 I really would love to interview the sad person who thinks up these things. )

EVERY PARENT with a child under 18 and in full-time education, whether via school or home education NEEDS TO READ THE SCHOOLS BILL IN FULL.

Do not just read the glossed over introduction on the gov website, it is perfectly worded to make it seem positive.

Currently in the UK our rights include the right to make sure that our children are recieving a full time education that suits their aptitude, abilities and needs.,

The new Schools Bill, if it becomes law, will affect every parent’s rights long term. Once you have lost rights in law, it is almost impossible to get them back. You have to fight it beforehand. Yet most parents are not aware that they are about to lose some very fundamental parental rights.

For an example, one of your legal rights as parents in the UK, is that if your child has SEND or bullying issues at school, you can make the choice to withdraw them to home educate them, send them to another school if you prefer, and you have other routes and choices you can go down. You can visit schools and speak to SEND specialists, all before making your choices. This is just one tiny example.

Under the new bill, if you decide to home educate, you will need to obtain consent from the school your child is registered at. You may then get local authority staff who are not trained in education or SEND, assessing your child’s learning, well-being and development. The local authority will have the power to decide, at a moment’s notice, that your child must return to school, and they may send them to an inadequate school of their choosing, where your child’s needs may not be met, and from which they will not be allowed to be withdrawn by you.

If the Schools Bill becomes law, your rights, as parents, will be removed from you and given to the government. You will no longer have any control over your child’s education.

The Schools Bill is being advertised as a bill only targeting those ‘missing education’. However, if you read the actual document, you may well feel outraged! You do need to read it thoroughly though. To not read it, would mean to blindly accept that the government knows what is best for your child and you do not.

Please read the Schools Bill and do what you can to fight it. Write to your MP. Find out who your local peers/members of the House of Lords are and write to them. The Lords are generally very nice, friendly and approachable people! As their job is to hold the elected government to account, you will be helping them to do their job!

The Schools Bill does not just target home educators, travellers, those living nonadically etc as most of the public have been led to believe. It will affect any child under 18, including yours.

Do you have a child who is sick or poorly a lot? This bill will affect you.

Do you have a child who has mental health issues and is too anxious or depressed to attend school at times? This bill will affect you.

Have you had a bereavement in the family, and your child wants to attend the funeral or needs some time off to grieve and process things? This bill will affect you.

Do you have a child with undiagnosed or unmet special or additional educational needs? This bill will affect you.

Is your child being severely and persistently bullied or socially ostracized at school, to the extent that it’s affecting their physical health, mental health and well-being? This bill will affect you.

To put it bluntly, if you have a child, this bill will affect you.

How much control do you want the government to have over your parenting choices? We all parent differently, depending upon our lifestyles and communities, our cultures and traditions, yet the government clearly want to put in place a standardised parenting style with little to no wiggle room.

All children need to be safeguarded, but this is not the way to do it. Your children may soon become wards of the state, because soon you will have very few parental rights left.

Please educate yourselves, because it is so hard watching those around us willingly allowing their rights as parents, actually as human beings, to be stripped away because a document is too much effort to read and understand. Its just easier to go along with the crowd, the status quo, and accept that the government must know what’s best for our children and our families.

Every parent should read and know this bill inside out, every grandparent, every aunt and uncle, every guardian, every older sibling. You have a duty of care to your families to understand what you are non-verbally agreeing to by allowing this bill to just pass you by. These are fundamental rights that are being stripped from UK citizens. Do not sleepwalk into something that you have not read and do not understand.

The words of Martin Niemoller come to mind: “Then they came for … and I did not speak out”.
