The destruction from a massive train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio, spread far beyond the initial wreckage site, spewing "hazardous" pollution across 16 states, according to a newly released study.

On Feb. 3, 2023, a Norfolk Southern freight train carrying hazardous materials derailed in East Palestine -- a village on the border of Ohio and Pennsylvania -- sending toxic chemicals into the air, soil, creeks and lakes in the region, according to the study published in Environmental Research Letters on Wednesday.

In total, the pollution from the wreckage and subsequent controlled burn of several of the train's cars spread over 16 states in the Midwest, Northeast and Southern U.S., reaching 540,000 square miles or 14% of the U.S. land area, according to the study.

Researchers estimate that 110 million residents, or one-third of the nation's population, were impacted by pollution.

CDK Global, a company that provides auto dealerships across the U.S. with software for managing sales and other services, has been hacked, prompting the company to temporarily shut down most of its systems. 

That is effectively preventing about 15,000 car dealerships from making sales. General Motors dealerships rely on CDK's systems, as does Group 1 Automotive, an auto retailer with hundreds of dealerships across the U.S. Holman, with dealerships across eight U.S. states, is another CDK client. 

"We are actively investigating a cyber incident," a CDK spokesperson told CBS News. "Out of an abundance of caution and concern for our customers, we have shut down most of our systems and are working diligently to get everything up and running as quickly as possible." 

Later on Wednesday afternoon, CDK said that after conducting tests and consulting with third-party experts, some of its systems were back up and running.

The State Department's secret payments to organizations that "rate" American news sources – campaigns that have been used to stop companies from doing business with conservative publications – are the subject of a new congressional subpoena.

The Washington Examiner explains the action was triggered by State's refusal to turn over records on programs that are part of what Republicans charge is a "censorship-by-proxy" scheme that interferes with small businesses.

The subpoena is from the House Small Business Committee and is part of a year-long investigation into the Global Engagement Center in State, which gave $100,000 of tax money to the Global Disinformation Index, a London-based group that works in America to "pressure advertisers to boycott conservative media."

Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos is not caving to the outrage mob within his own newsroom.

Earlier this month, Sally Buzbee abruptly resigned as executive editor of the Washington Post. In a staff meeting held after her departure, CEO and publisher Will Lewis told disgruntled staffers the newspaper needed to embrace a new vision and fresh direction.

'To be sure, it can't be business as usual at The Post. The world is evolving rapidly and we do need to change as a business.'

"We are losing large amounts of money. Your audience has halved in recent years. People are not reading your stuff. I can't sugarcoat it anymore," Lewis said. "So I've had to take decisive, urgent action to set us on a different path, sourcing talent that I have worked with that are the best of the best."

The changes sent shockwaves through the Post's newsroom. One of the chief complaints among staffers, according to Vanity Fair, is the diversity makeup of the newspaper's leadership.

One staffer even complained that now "four white men" would be running the Post.

In my last three articles, we examined the global war on farmers, the culprits behind the agenda, and the tactics used to prepare the public for the destruction of our food freedom. Today we will cover some of the projects and products that will be used to take away your right to access healthy foods.

Most readers are likely familiar with GMOs and how genetically modified organisms have been shown to cause significant health problems, how they have ruined the lives of independent farmers who are sued after their land is involuntarily contaminated by Monsanto seeds, and how glyphosate use has risen thanks to Roundup Ready GMO crops. Unfortunately, corruption of the food supply is advancing far beyond this.

DARPA, the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, has granted millions of dollars to researchers to turn military plastic waste into a bacterial protein powder that can be fed to humans.

You are surely familiar with Bill Gates-funded fake meats like Impossible Burgers, made of carcinogenic GMO soy and neurotoxins like hexane and MSG, and which have tested positive for high levels of glyphosate

Claire's Observations:  With the alleged coming "pig/tiger/mongoose"/bird flu, it might be wise to stock up now on chicken, pork, and beef products while you still can.  There may be a coming cull of farm animals coming which is so drastic, that things you take for granted at your local grocery store,  in terms of always being available, just may not be.  

THAT will be the moment, when you can only buy Frankenfood, which is to be avoided at all costs.

A budget bus alternative to Greyhound is facing bankruptcy as the true American economy bends under the continued pressure of insurmountable debt, inflation and bad bets.

Megabus, which is owned by Coach USA, is known for its tickets that cost as little as $1 a pop. It currently operates in 500 cities across America, having first launched in 2006.

Despite serving more than 50 million Americans, Megabus and its parent company Coach USA are filing for bankruptcy. Coach USA, which serves 38 million people a year, also runs various other brands including Dillon's Bus Company and Go Van Galder.

According to Coach CEO Derrick Waters, Megabus buses will continue to run as normal during the company's bankruptcy proceedings.

Food is the foundation of a civilized society, so when food supplies are threatened society is threatened. It seems Gates’ bug and anti-meat agenda is getting traction. Hunger is a weapon.

And Diane de Vere keeps warning us Australia is the global beta-test.

On 22 May 2024, the Chief Health Officer of Victoria issued a health advisory on their website, informing of a recently reported human case of avian influenza in Victoria. WHO states: “This is the first human infection with an avian influenza A(H5N1) virus reported by Australia. Most human cases of infection with avian influenza viruses reported to date have been due to exposure to infected poultry or contaminated environments. Currently, the likely source of exposure to the virus in the case remains unknown but likely occurred in India where the patient travelled before onset of illness.”

But where do all these strains come from — H5N1, H7N3, H7N9, H7N7?

On the night of September 25-26, 1983, the siren blared at 0:15 local time at the Soviet missile defense center near Moscow. The early warning system reported the launch of a US intercontinental ballistic missile.

The officer on duty, Lt. Col. Stanislav Petrov, only had a few minutes to assess the situation. In line with the logic of deterrence in force at the time – “Whoever shoots first, dies second!” – the Soviet leadership had less than half an hour to unleash a devastating counterattack.

Petrov analyzed the situation and after two minutes reported a false alarm to the military command due to a computer error. While he was still on the phone, the system indicated a second missile launch, followed shortly afterwards by a third, fourth and fifth alarm. Despite everything, Stanislav Petrov held his nerve and stuck to his decision.

After more minutes of extreme tension no missiles hit Russia. Petrov had been right. It had indeed been a false alarm attributed to an unusual constellation of sun and satellite system over a US military base. The Soviet defense system had misinterpreted this configuration as a missile launch.

Three of the world’s leading atmospheric scientists have declared that the so-called “Net Zero” agenda is nothing more than a globalist “scam.”

Distinguished atmospheric scientists Richard Lindzen, William Happer, and William van Wijngaarden warn that complying with “Net Zero” targets will do absolutely nothing to “save the planet” from “climate change,” as globalists claim.

They note that “Net Zero” targets, as laid out by the World Economic Forum (WEF), United Nations (UN), and their globalist allies, are not backed by real science and rely only on fearmongering.

In a statement issued on the occasion of the “International Day for Countering Hate Speech,” UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called for the global eradication of so-called “hate speech,” which he described as inherently toxic and entirely intolerable.

The issue of censoring “hate speech” stirs significant controversy, primarily due to the nebulous and subjective nature of its definition. At the heart of the debate is a profound concern: whoever defines what constitutes hate speech essentially holds the power to determine the limits of free expression.

Claire's Observations:  This is precisely what the UN wants to do; to control speech, so that no criticisms, no matter how legitimate and factually based, may be laid against anything they, or the WTO, the WHO, or their Puppet master, the US Government decides to do.  

This will be the absolute end of free speech and free journalism, globally, as we have known it.

Economics professor and author Jeffrey Sachs has spent too long in the geo-political arena to take the official US policy on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine at face value. He calls for negotiations in regards to Vladimir Putin’s recent ‘peace’ deal, which demands that Ukraine hand over large swathes of land to Russia.

Although Jeffrey comes armed with a litany of crimes to lay at the doorstep of the collective west, Piers Morgan presses him on the central issues. Isn’t it strange that Putin hasn’t invaded a NATO member? And why doesn’t Sachs hold Putin to the same standard of conduct as the US government?

Dramatic footage has surfaced on X showing a Juneteenth celebration in Oakland, California, which was transformed into a warzone in the overnight hours. What appears to be gang-on-gang violence sparked an insane shootout on city streets. In a state governed by radical leftist Gavin Newsom, where common sense law and order are seemingly absent, such scenes are becoming more frequent. This incident further exemplifies why people and businesses continue to flee to safer, red states. 

Local media outlet SFGate reported that as many as 5,000 people attended the Juneteenth celebration in Oakland's Lake Merritt area.

Around 2015 local time, a fight broke out at a sideshow involving "motorbikes and vehicles" at Grand and Bellevue avenues—and that was the moment when all hell erupted. 

"During that fight, multiple shots rang out," said Paul Chambers, the OPD's strategic communications manager

Claire's Observations:  you can see what happened here:

The Kremlin has continued blasting the international Ukraine peace summit which was held in Burgenstock, Switzerland over the weekend, with spokeswoman Maria Zakharova highlighting that the Alpine "get-together" produced zero results.

Though there were almost 100 countries represented, Zakharova said that this attempt to involve as many countries of the Global South as possible "has failed". She further described that the whole effort at putting on a "universal event" while at the same time talking more weapons deliveries to Kiev behind the scenes was all about trying to "camouflage" the West's continued aggressive intentions.

The EU, NATO, and a number of European capitals are watching France's political turmoil with growing alarm, as President Emmanuel Macron is clearly on the ropes, having called early elections, leaving a path open for the French 'far-right' to triumph. 

The foreign policy establishment in both Europe and Washington fears that large-scale joint initiatives like ramped-up military spending and the new push to fund Ukraine's defense for years to come could also be in question, given Macron had long become among Kiev's top cheerleaders.

He had even recently unveiled a controversial plan to send French and NATO military trainers to Ukraine"Paris has been working for a while now with the Ukrainians on this," a person familiar with France's initiative had told The Financial Times. But given the plan wasn't launched formally by NATO leadership, Macron is seen as the prime mover on the European continent behind all of this.

To make peace it is better to gather in a five-star resort equipped with all comforts. Western diplomacy loves luxury and the pleasures of life. To discuss peace between Russia and Ukraine, it was decided to hold the summit in increasingly less neutral Switzerland. 

The summit took place at the legendary Burgenstock Resort in Lucerne. A little corner of paradise for the delegations present at the summit: stuff for billionaires. Room stays cost between $1,500 and $2,000 per night per person. The Lucerne resort covers an area of 10,000 m², features 3 private spa rooms, 15 treatment rooms, a fully equipped fitness area, an indoor swimming pool and 2 outdoor swimming pools, one of which is an infinity one with breathtaking views of the lake of the Four Cantons. The catering service is also enchanting: the rates to take advantage of international cuisine vary between 200 and 400 dollars per meal. In short, if you have to play at making peace, it’s better to do it with a full belly and maximum comfort.

Hezbollah released video footage on June 18 from one of its reconnaissance drones flying over the northern Israeli city of Haifa, in what appeared to be a direct threat to the country.

The ten-minute video, dubbed “What The Hoopoe Brought Back,” included shots of strategic military sites in the outskirts of Haifa, including the Iron Dome and David’s Sling air defense systems, as well as footage of a residential neighborhoods in the nearby area of Kiryat Yam

Shots of the Israeli Navy base, as well as several warships and infrastructure said to belong to the Navy’s submarine unit, Shayetet 7, were also included in the footage.

Hezbollah claimed that the drone returned to Lebanon unimpeded, without revealing when the reconnaissance mission was conducted. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) has not yet commented on the video.

A nationwide power blackout hit Ecuador on Wednesday afternoon, plunging 17 million people into darkness. Authorities are working to repair a faulty transmission line that was responsible for the outage.

"The immediate report that we received from the CENACE (National Center of Energy Control) is that there is a failure in the transmission line that caused a cascade disconnection, so there is no energy service on a national scale," Public Works Minister Roberto Luque wrote on X.

Luque added, "We are concentrating all our efforts on resolving the problem as quickly as possible."

Claire's Observations:  Aging systems problems, sabotage, or a little bit of both?!? It's hard to say, but we in the West have been told innumerable times,  that the US power grid is very vulnerable to problems, because of old systems which have not been repaired or replaced in a timely manner.

In a move that has sparked outrage among Trump supporters, a New York court recently decided to uphold a gag order that restricts Trump from speaking publicly about his ongoing legal battles.

This gag order is part of the broader efforts to keep Trump’s comments in check as he navigates multiple legal challenges. But for many, this feels like a direct attack on Trump’s right to free speech.

Alan Dershowitz, a heavyweight in legal circles, isn’t having any of it. He’s blasting the court’s decision, arguing that it’s not just an overreach but a dangerous precedent that could impact all Americans.

Hold on to your hats because former President Donald Trump has just dropped another bombshell. In his usual no-nonsense style, Trump has sent a clear and direct message to business executives across the nation: What Biden will do to you is unthinkable. The former president is making it crystal clear that the upcoming election is a high-stakes game for America’s business leaders.

He laid out his case against President Joe Biden’s tax policies, which he argues are strangling American businesses and driving the economy into a ditch.

According to Trump, Biden’s tax hikes are a disaster waiting to happen, and it’s up to the country’s business leaders to take a stand. And if any executives refuse to rally to his banner, well there’s just one thing to be done.

From Just the News:
Former President Donald Trump said business leaders and anyone paid to create shareholder value should vote for him or get fired because President Joe Biden wants to hike the corporate tax rate to 28%.

Out of all the unhinged hosts of The View, Joy Behar might be the worst. The outspoken Democrat is flipping over Trump once again, as she and her cohorts have long spewed anti-Republican rhetoric. But with the news that Trump is leading in most polls, it looks like Behar can’t handle it.

Some folks in the media appear to be getting desperate. Now they’re making wild claims about what Trump might do to them should he win the election.

During a recent episode, Behar didn’t hold back. She warned the audience that Trump has it out for The View and would waste no time seeking revenge. Ironically, though, if Trump did do this—millions of Americans would thank him.

From The Daily Mail:
The Secret Service destroyed a video that captured President Joe Biden’s dog Commander chomping down on one of its agents – in an attack that forced the White House to shut down tours so blood could be wiped off the floor.

DailyMail.com filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the Secret Service in March after a video was mentioned as part of an email that detailed a June 15, 2023 biting incident with the since-banished first dog.

The video purportedly showed Commander running at a high rate of speed and jumping toward the agent in the East Wing’s Kennedy Garden, leaving a ‘deep bite’ on the individual’s left arm ‘that reportedly needed stitches,’ the email said.

It turns out that the Secret Service has destroyed a video of President Joe Biden’s dog, Commander, attacking an agent. Yes, you read that right. The very agency tasked with protecting our nation’s leaders is now under scrutiny for what could be a cover-up.

mmigration policies. His administration’s decisions to reverse many of Trump’s immigration policies have sparked a firestorm of debate.

Since Biden entered office, reports show that over 8 million illegal aliens have entered the country. This is one of the larger factors of America’s ailing economy—as Americans are forced to compete with aliens for jobs, resources, and housing.

Despite a recent order to “fix” the border, it’s clear Biden has no intention to follow federal law. He’s even making it much worse, inviting millions more outsiders to flood the country. Now, Joe has just issued an order that will only worsen a crisis that is putting countless lives at risk.

From The Daily Wire:
President Joe Biden announced on Tuesday that he was rewarding hundreds of thousands of migrants who violated federal immigration laws, which comes as he claims that he is cracking down on illegal immigration.

Biden’s new policy will provide legal status and a streamlined path to U.S. residency and citizenship to more than 500,000 illegal aliens who married American citizens and have lived in the country for 10 years…

I don’t have to tell you that many Americans look back on Obama’s presidency with scorn. He promised big things for Americans, but did he deliver? His biggest “achievement” was Obamacare. Many say that failed so terribly it motivated many voters to elect Donald Trump.

But there was another achievement that Barry and his allies bragged about back in 2015. Despite all their hot air, it was never ratified by Congress.

Now, leaders around the world are commenting on this major accomplishment from Obama’s White House. Although it was supposed to protect the world and avert disaster, “nobody” followed it. And this one leader is giving it a huge, failing grade.

From Breitbart:
Rafael Grossi, director of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), said on Monday that former President Barack Obama’s 2015 nuclear deal with Iran “exists only on paper and means nothing.”
