"Most people prefer to believe their leaders are just and fair even in the face of evidence to the contrary, because once a citizen acknowledges that the government under which they live is lying and corrupt, the citizen has to choose what he or she will do about it. To take action in the face of a corrupt government entails risks of harm to life and loved ones. To choose to do nothing is to surrender one's self-image of standing for principles. Most people do not have the courage to face that choice. Hence, most propaganda is not designed to fool the critical thinker but only to give moral cowards an excuse not to think at all." -- Michael Rivero
Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley took a shot at her former boss on Friday, former President Donald Trump, calling him “weak in the knees” for not wanting to do more to support Ukraine and calling him “thin-skinned and easily distracted.”
Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), infuriated by the shadowy, thoroughly unsettling, closed-door shenanigans of Capitol Hill, let rip with a scathing twelve-and-a-half-minute dissection of the corruption she’s found.
In an informal garage gym setting familiar to those who have followed her weight-lifting videos, the GOP lawmaker lashed out in a video posted to X, formerly Twitter, at House leadership and the Biden administration side-by-side regarding the absurd spending bills that have been compounded together in a desperate bid to gain approval for additional funding to be sent to Ukraine.
“They bring a defense bill to the floor yesterday that had $300 million for Ukraine in it. I told them all week long, ‘I’m not voting for $300 million to Ukraine,’” Greene told her viewers. “I would love to vote for that bill without the Ukraine money, but no, they didn’t take it out.”
She repeatedly called upon her colleagues to strip Ukraine funding from an extremely necessary defense spending package. However, congressional leadership refused, ignoring urgent calls from Greene as well as other members like Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who called for the same.
Top toxicologist Dr. Janci Lindsay has warned that mRNA jabs contain the same cancer-causing SV40 sequences that were found in the deadly polio shots from the 1950’s.
Among several prominent medical professionals who testified last week before the South Carolina Senate Medical Affairs Ad-Hoc Committee on pandemic preparedness, Dr. Lindsay warned legislators that the Covid jabs are contaminated with DNA and plasmids that contain deadly SV40 sequences:
“Um, I’m short on time. So I’m trying to fit this in. Basically, people were given in the clinical trial a clean shot. People, everybody else was given these contaminated shots. Every single vial that’s been tested by every scientist around the world is contaminated with these plasmids. And some are contaminated – when Kevin McKernan first tested the vials, he found that one of the vials contained up to about 30 percent of the nucleic acid material was, in fact, DNA – so this is not some residual contamination that’s carrying over. This is significant contamination.”
Dr. Lindsay went on to say she believed there was a “nefarious intent” behind the SV40 sequences being loaded into the jabs, before going on to warn that the vaccines are “contaminated, dangerous, lethal products.”
Social media platform X, formerly called Twitter, issued a brutal context update on a Washington Post piece about Barstool founder Dave Portnoy, who earlier in the week taped a call he had confronting one of the reporters writing what he deemed a “hit piece.”
According to a disturbing report in the Washington Post, “The new office will report up through Stefanie Feldman, the White House staff secretary and a longtime Biden policy aide who has worked on the firearms issue for years.”
The office will be overseen by “The White House, the Community Justice Action Fund and Everytown for Gun Safety.”
Shannon Watts, a Mike Bloomberg associate who founded Moms Demand Action, praised the creation of the unconstitutional office, saying, “If this announcement is, in fact, the creation of a single point of leadership on gun violence in the administration, it’s a very big deal for the movement.”
“A governmental focal point dedicated to creating a framework for overseeing national policy, research and resources would be more than symbolic — it would be a significant turning point for the movement.”
Chicago’s Democratic mayor has announced a partnership with a far-left non-profit to advance his proposal of a government-owned grocery store, which he argues is needed for the sake of “racial justice.”
Wisconsin Public Radio reports, “The majority decision was written by Justice Rebecca Bradley and joined by the rest of the court’s conservative majority, including swing Justice Brian Hagedorn.”
“Nothing in the statutory language detailing the procedures by which absentee ballots may be cast mentions drop boxes or anything like them,” Bradley wrote in the ruling.
“WEC’s staff may have been trying to make voting as easy as possible during the pandemic, but whatever their motivations, WEC must follow Wisconsin statutes,” Bradley continued. “Good intentions never override the law.”
Additionally, voters must personally deliver absentee ballots to the clerk’s office. Others, including roommates and spouses, will not be allowed to deliver ballots for them.
“Reading the election statutes in context and as a whole, we conclude an absentee ballot delivered in person … must be delivered personally by the voter,” Bradley wrote.
The Supreme Court has been a thorn in the side of President Joe Biden’s administration, frequently ruling against his agenda. But the nation’s highest court appears poised to do even more damage to Biden’s plans to move the country to the far left.
For instance, Biden’s plans to tax ‘the rich’ could soon be axed after the high court ruled earlier this year that Biden’s $430 billion-plus student loan forgiveness was unconstitutional.
Moore v. United States, for example, could greatest influence on Biden, despite the fact that the court will hear cases this fall involving the right to bear arms, the authority of federal agencies, and whether the phrase “Trump too small” can be trademarked.
That debate centers on Biden’s frequently expressed desire for a wealth tax and whether it could be implemented.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich slammed Republican House members who are holding up passing spending bills to keep the U.S. government running, saying that they are hurting the party and the country by playing games.
In a surprise move, Governor Gavin Newsom (D-CA) vetoed a bill that would have allowed judges to consider whether a parent “affirms” a child’s “gender identity” among other factors during custody battles.
The 911 call from the aftermath of an F-35 crash in South Carolina last Sunday was released on Friday, revealing more details about the expensive incident that is still under investigation by the U.S. military.
A U.S. federal appeals court has thrown up a big roadblock for special counsel Jack Smith as he continues his investigation into the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol Building two-and-a-half years ago.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled last week that Smith cannot have access to the phone records of Rep. Scott Perry (R-Pa.) because allowing him to obtain the information amounts to a breach of the GOP lawmaker’s immunity under the Constitution’s “speech and debate” clause.
Smith was seeking Perry’s communications with colleagues and Executive Branch officials, Politico reported. However, the clause in question shields members of Congress from being slapped with legal proceedings while they are engaging in their elected official duties.
Russian forces foiled the activity of eight Ukrainian subversive groups in the Kherson direction in the past week, with the enemy losing roughly 445 soldiers, the Russian Defense Ministry said in a report.
The owners of a New York City daycare centre where a toddler died and three others were sickened by opioid exposure last week were hiding bags of fentanyl beneath a trap door in the children’s play area, police say.
New York City detectives were executing a search warrant on the Bronx apartment on Thursday when they found the narcotics, including a large quantity of fentanyl and other paraphernalia concealed by plywood and tile flooring. Photos shared by police showed bags full of powder inside the “trap floor” a few steps away from a shelf of children’s toys.
Researchers in Sweden have discovered that large amounts of methane, a powerful greenhouse gas, is leaking from unusual depths of the Baltic Sea seabed.
In a recent expedition, researchers at Stockholm University and Linne University detected methane bubbles rising up 370 metres (1,200 feet) from the seabed, a stark contrast to the expected 150-200 metres.
The gas bubbles were found in a 20-square-kilometre (77-square-miles) area off of Sweden’s southeastern coast.
“We know that methane gas can bubble up from shallow seabeds near the Baltic Sea coast, but I’ve never seen such intense bubbles before – and definitely not from such a deep area,” said researcher Christian Stranne, member of the research project, in a statement from Stockholm University.
Stranne explained the oxygen-free conditions in the deep waters of the Baltic Sea could be causing the bubbles to remain more intact, making them rise to the surface more efficiently.
Similar methane leaks could be present in other parts of the Baltic Sea, he said, and the researchers will be carrying out further analysis to understand the cause of high levels of methane release in the area.
The author of letters to social media companies demanding the financial punishment of Russell Brand is a British lawmaker implicated in London’s war on Covid-19 and Ukraine dissenters. Her husband was a commander in the Army’s psy-ops division.
Allegations of sexual impropriety and abuse by comedian and podcaster Russell Brand by the British media prompted YouTube to demonetize the star’s popular channel on September 20.
The Grayzone can now reveal that YouTube’s financial censorship of Brand is the result of an effort waged by a former British government minister who was responsible for London’s crackdown on dissent during the Covid-19 pandemic. Her husband has also participated in that campaign of state repression as deputy commander of 77th Brigade, the British Army’s psychological warfare division.
YouTube justified its demonetization of Brand on the grounds that he violated its “creator responsibility policy.” This marks the first time a content creator has been financially punished by the company for reasons other than the videos published on the site. A spokesperson has claimed, “if a creator’s off-platform behaviour harms our users, employees or ecosystem, we take action.”
The allegations against Brand date from betwee 2006 and ’13, and have yet to be proven in court. There is no indication the charges are being investigated by law enforcement in Britain or the US, where the offenses allegedly occurred. Brand has vehemently denied accusations of abuse and rape.
A sordid spat burst open this week revealing the absolute lack of principles among the NATO alliance supposedly defending Ukraine against purported Russian aggression. The chief antagonists in the latest row are Poland and the Kiev regime but the angry sparks are liable to explode the whole shaky facade of NATO and European Union support for the Ukrainian regime.
Poland this week said it would halt the supply of weapons to Ukraine. Warsaw declared that its priority was to modernize its armed forces. This is an astounding U-turn by the Polish authorities who up to now have been one of the most gung-ho supporters of the Kiev regime against alleged “Russian aggression”.
The subsequent panic is palpable. Germany has accused Poland of “playing politics” in its solidarity towards Ukraine, while Lithuania and the other Baltic states are clamouring for drastic mediation.
Lithuania’s President Gitanas Nausedá called on Poland and Ukraine to end the row as a matter of urgency. “For the sake of our common and most important goal – the protection of Europe from Russia’s aggressive expansionist policy – the difference between Ukraine and Poland must be resolved as soon as possible.”
President Joe Biden announced on Thursday that Vice President Kamala Harris will lead the new federal office of gun violence prevention after she produced questionable results on the border and with voting rights legislation.
The office will reportedly act as a coordinated effort between the Biden White House, the Community Justice Action Fund, and Everytown for Gun Safety. Activists argue that the office will allow the administration to coordinate on gun control issues across the federal government.
“Our promise to the American people is this: we will not stop working to end the epidemic of gun violence in every community, because we do not have a moment, nor a life, to spare,” Harris said.
However, Harris’s leadership on key policy issues such as gun control, artificial intelligence, and the migrant crisis has either been fraught with gaffes or has produced no substantive change.
During a roundtable in July, Harris attempted to explain artificial intelligence to a group of labor and civil rights leaders and instead her speech became a word salad.
Captain Zig and Captain Zag of the major parties take their turns in the wheelhouse, the destination is on the horizon now, it has a very noticeable red tinge.
Australian states and “five eyes” countries have been flooded with covert communists, with the exception of Britain which was diverted by Boris Johnson, himself later punished by being unseated with a mighty storm-in-a-teacup “Covid party” furor. The left typically rises during an economic downturn, when the public appetite is stronger for handouts, but there is also a suggestion of vote-rigging or corruption in many of these elections, noticeably also in Brazil, where the outgoing leader (“just a little flu” Bolsonaro) fled the country as if there had been a bloody coup.
When communists take over, an early priority is control of information, after that comes a barrage of rules, restrictions and curfews of various types and ever rising costs, duties and imposts, followed by attacks on certain minorities, conscientious objectors et al, while the communist clique itself receives increasingly favourable treatment from and via the state.
Eventually they declare war on their entire citizenry and purges follow.
Here in Australia we have Communications Minister Michelle Rowland working on censoring information with draconian punishments for offenders. This is the clearest possible indication that worse is to come. But don’t hold your breath, this is being done slowly, and by stealth.
Ohio Republican Rep. Jim Jordan is demanding the testimony of Special Counsel David Weiss, the man who is in charge of the Hunter Biden investigation.
The representative sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland in which he requested documents and testimony as part of the investigation his committee is having to see if the Department of Justice has been politicized, Fox News reported.
It comes the same week that the representative and the attorney general had a fiery exchange during a hearing in the House.
“Mr. Weiss asked to be made special counsel. I had promised that I would give him all the resources he needed and I made him special counsel,” the attorney general said at the hearing, but the representative had more questions.
“Mr. Garland, What changed on July 10th, 2023? David Weiss wrote to Senator Graham and said, I have not requested special counsel designation. August 11th, you announced that he’s now the special counsel. What happened in that 31 days?” he said.
