Germany is helping to fan the flames of the Ukraine conflict by allowing Kiev to launch long-range strikes into Russia, veteran left-wing politician Sahra Wagenknecht has said.

Wagenknecht made the remarks at a rally in Berlin on Thursday ahead of European Parliament elections. The theme of the Ukraine conflict featured prominently at the demonstration, which was attended by hundreds of the politician’s supporters carrying banners bearing Wagenknecht’s face and the words “War or peace? It’s your choice now.”

The firebrand, who earlier this year split from the Left Party to form the Sahra Wagenknecht Alliance (BSW) – a party that is left-leaning on economic issues but closer to the far-right on several hot-button issues such as immigration – blasted German Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s government over its Ukraine policy.

The presence of the nuclear-powered submarine, along with a frigate and two support vessels, is part of an upcoming visit to the port of Havana aimed at strengthening the friendship between Cuba and the Russian Federation.

As tension in Europe increases due to the escalation of the Russo-Ukrainian conflict, the Russian Navy will deploy a flotilla in the Caribbean Sea in the coming days as part of an official visit to Cuba; which can be seen as a challenge to the United States government. The information released by the Cuban government yesterday, June 6, gains relevance as this flotilla is led by the nuclear-powered attack submarine Kazan (K-561), accompanied by the missile frigate Admiral Gorshkov and support vessels.

The recent decision by Washington and its allies in Europe to allow Kiev to use Western-supplied weapons for long-range strikes deep into Russian territory shows that Ukraine’s backers “do not want peace,” Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico said on Saturday.

His was referring to a recent series of statements from the US, UK, Germany, and other Western nations, in which their leaders said that Kiev can now use weapons supplied by them in strikes targeting internationally recognized Russian territory.

Earlier this week, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz called the move a way to ensure peace, claiming that Russia’s potential success on the battlefield is the biggest threat to peace on the continent.

The Kremlin responded to the Western statements by accusing NATO of provoking a new “round of tensions.” In May, Russian President Vladimir Putin warned that using long-range weapons against Russia would have “serious consequences” for the West.

The German government has finalized new plans for a potential war, including reinstatement of compulsory military service and deployment of NATO troops on its eastern flank, citing rising concerns over perceived threats from Russia.

The country’s new defense framework was approved by Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s cabinet on Wednesday, replacing guidelines that dated back to 1989. “As a result of Russian aggression, we have a completely changed security situation in Europe,” Interior Minister Nancy Faeser said in a statement.

The new defense plan spells out such details as mandatory conscription and forcing manufacturers to produce only war goods. Parts of the country could be evacuated, and subway stations, underground parking lots, and other subterranean facilities would be used as temporary shelters.

Former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Timoshenko is now listed as a wanted person in Russia, according to the Interior Ministry’s database. She currently leads the opposition Fatherland (Batkivshchyna) party in the parliament.

The bulletin on the 63-year-old veteran Ukrainian politician, who has run for president three times, entered the media spotlight on Friday, though it only said that Timoshenko “is wanted under an article of the Criminal Code,” without providing further details.

Timoshenko served as Ukraine’s prime minister for several months in 2005 after co-leading a series of protests known as the ‘Orange Revolution’, sparked by the disputed results of the 2004 presidential election. The upheaval resulted in the victory of Viktor Yushchenko, a NATO- and Western-leaning presidential candidate.

The EU's foreign policy chief has faced days of increasing backlash over his controversial remarks on geopolitics.

After days of mounting international backlash, Josep Borrell, the European Union's outspoken foreign policy chief, has apologised for his controversial remarks in which he described Europe as an idyllic "garden" of prosperity and the rest of the world as mostly a "jungle."

"Some have misinterpreted the metaphor as 'colonial Euro-centrism'," Borrell wrote in a blog post on Tuesday evening. "I am sorry if some have felt offended."

But he did not reject the figure of speech and instead doubled down on it, arguing the term jungle is an apt illustration of the lawlessness and disorder that currently rule world politics.

The concepts of hegemony and global dominance, which the Collective West clings to, have no place in the multipolar world order – which is already becoming a reality, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Saturday.

Speaking at a panel discussion on new norms of international relations at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF), Zakharova slammed Western governments for resisting the structural changes which have already started with regard to the self-organization of nations and their interactions with other states.

“We are talking about polycentrism, a departure from previous norms, and we see the desperate resistance of the Collective West... They see the norm differently – as their own dominance, as a world order based on one rule – that they must dominate as before, and everyone must do only what the dominant allows them to do,” she stated, adding that the drive for dominance has only ever “led humanity to monstrous tragedies,” including colonialism and Nazism.

The West is “within centimeters of a direct conflict” with Russia, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has warned, noting that both the EU and US need pro-peace forces to replace those currently in power in order to avoid this scenario.

In an interview with TV2 on Friday, just two days before the European Parliament elections, Orban said that with all the discussions regarding sending additional weapons and even troops to Ukraine, the West “is on a straight road to war.”

The prime minister noted that when the conflict began in 2022, most EU countries, including Germany, vowed to only send non-lethal aid to Kiev, such as helmets – and “there was no question of supplying equipment suitable for killing human life to the Ukrainians.” Since then, however, the Western powers have supplied Kiev with a wide range of weaponry and ammunition.

Hamburg MP Olga Petersen has sought refuge in Russia, telling Bild that she feared having her children taken by the German state over her perceived support for Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Petersen left Hamburg with her children last month, prompting widespread speculation about her whereabouts. Several weeks before her disappearance, her party – the right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD) – expelled her from its Hamburg faction for traveling to Russia as an election observer in March and declaring the vote “open, democratic, and free.”

Alexander Brod, a member of the Russian Presidential Council for Civil Society and Human Rights, told TASS last week that Petersen had settled in Russia with three of her four kids. 

Petersen broke her silence on Friday. “I have indeed taken my children out of the country,” she told Bild. “I want to know that my children are safe and that they remain in my care. Without my children, I would no longer see any meaning in life.”

The volume of DDoS attacks on SPIEF portals in 2024 doubled the figures for 2023, cyber attacks were successfully repelled, Igor Lyapunov, CEO of Solar Group, told reporters.

"After June 3-4, when the attackers made unsuccessful attempts to carry out trial cyber attacks, the forum resources ceased to be perceived by them as the main vector of attacks. The SPIEF portals were still subjected to massive DDoS attacks with a capacity of about 200 thousand malicious requests per second, but at present this is not the largest volume, although it is 2 times higher than last year's SPIEF," Lyapunov said.

"All cyber attacks on the infrastructure of the SPIEF and Solar itself were successfully repelled and did not affect the efficiency of the forum's resources," he added.

The third day of the forum was marked by an increased background of attacks on the event's infrastructure. As Lyapunov clarified, the hackers chose the infrastructure of the Solar itself as the main vector of attacks.

A majority of Britain’s young people do not believe Israel should exist, a new UnHerd poll has revealed.

A preliminary finding of an exclusive survey of 1,012 voters about foreign policy, conducted by Focaldata and due to be released tomorrow on UnHerd, found that a striking 54% of 18-24-year-olds agreed with the statement that “the state of Israel should not exist.” Just 21% disagreed.

“The state of Israel should not exist”
Percentage of UK voters who agree, by age group
 

This finding dovetails with other UnHerd polling on the same issue. In a separate question, young respondents were asked who was more to blame for the war in Gaza. Half blamed the Israeli government, while a quarter answered Hamas. Only 19% responded “all equally”.

The war’s high degree of exposure online and on social media appears to have fuelled interest among Britain’s young. An AI-generated “all eyes on Rafah” graphic was shared more than 44 million times on Instagram recently, with pro-Palestine content also proliferating on TikTok. Critics have argued that the Chinese social media platform has deliberately promoted anti-Israel content, which TikTok has denied, citing the existing attitudes of its young user base.

Claire's Observations:  In numerous posts, I have asked the regime in Tel Aviv, to be very careful about what they wanted, as the ultimate outcome of the genocide in Gaza:  I can guarantee you, this was NOT the outcome of this genocide they wanted in the UK.  These young people are either getting ready to vote, or already voting; and what do you think they will ask Parliament to do, in the not too distant future, in terms of the UK's stalwart support of Israel, no matter what?!?

Should the European NATO members manage to provoke Moscow into a nuclear response, the Americans might stay on the sidelines, Russian President Vladimir Putin has said.

Speaking at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF) on Friday, Putin was asked about the increasingly belligerent rhetoric from some European capitals, which moderator Sergey Karaganov compared to the baying of hyenas.

“The Europeans have to think: if those with whom we exchange such [nuclear] blows are obliterated, would the Americans get involved in such an exchange, on the level of strategic weapons, or not? I very much doubt it,” Putin said in response.

The Russian president explained that, while the US and Russia both have well-developed early warning systems to detect incoming missiles, the European members of NATO do not. “In this sense, they are more or less defenseless,” he said.

US Bombers Drop Live Munitions in Threat to North Korea

by | Jun 6, 2024

Two US B-1 strategic bombers dropped live munitions on the Korean Peninsula in a show of force eyeing Pyongyang. Tensions in the region have ratcheted up during the Biden administration as the president has taken a hardline approach toward the DPRK. 

The American B-1Bs and two South Korean fighter jets dropped live GBU-38, 500-pound Joint Direct Attack Munitions (JDAMS) on test targets in South Korea. “This training showcases the incredible capabilities of our combined forces to simultaneously strike multiple targets in a contested environment,” said Lt. Gen. David Iverson, US Force Korea deputy commander and Seventh Air Force commander. “The tremendous capabilities of ROK and US airpower is an overwhelming, asymmetric warfighting advantage for our combined force that adversaries cannot match.”

A press release from the Pentagon explained that the B-1B “carries the largest conventional payload of both guided and unguided weapons in the US Air Force inventory and can rapidly deliver massive quantities of precision and non-precision weapons against any adversary, anywhere in the world, at any time.”

In addition to the live test bombing, the US and South Korean air forces conducted yet another round of joint war games. The Defense Department press release added that “US Marine Corps F-35Bs, US Air Force F-16s, and KC-135 Stratotankers, and [South Korean] F-35As and KF-16s for air-to-air training over the western region of South Korea.”

The provocative drills come as the relationship between US-backed Seoul and Pyongyang continues a long downward spiral. After former President Donald Trump’s negotiations with Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un failed, Biden adopted a far more aggressive policy towards North Korea, effectively rejecting diplomacy while carrying out a flurry of exercises with the South. 

The result has been a massive escalation of military activity on both sides of the DMZ. North Korea has conducted record numbers of weapons tests in recent years – including intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICMBs) – while the US and South Korea engaged in historic war games. 

Communication between North and South Korea has also broken down since Biden took power, and some de-escalation agreements between the two sides have been abandoned outright

Claire's Observations:  The bigger questions, the quiet part which must be said out loud (and please, with an industrial strength megaphone), is what will China do, should the US and/or South Korea attack North Korea?

And will Russia, already making mincemeat out of the US's" allegedly amazing"  weaponry in Ukraine, feel obligated to follow China in defending North Korea?!? 

Folks, such an attack against North Korea by the US and/or South Korea, is  an explosion of World War III, writ large; it has already started with the US and NATO backing Ukraine against Russia, most probably accompanied by a larger, regional war in the Middle East (at Israel's behest, of course).

 And  having witnessed the debacle which the Ukraine war has become, is the leadership of this country so "hopium/changium" insane as to look at fighting China and Russia over North Korea?!?!?  

Unfortunately, the short answer is, "HELL, yes!!  

Please remember; they have their state of-the-art-bunkers, their champagne; and their caviar; the rest of us can go to a radioactive hell, as far as most of them are concerned, which would  probably happen to most of us when Russia and China uncork on the US.

Kim Jung-Un may be many things, but stupid isn't one of them.  His intel network, supplemented by that of China, knows precisely  what US/South Korean military capabilities can do.  These acts of military bravado, on the par of the US and South Korea, were really not necessary, but simply done to ratchet up tensions.

Negotiations are ultimately a lot harder than throwing bombs and bullets at a country which does not want to comply with US dictates, but they are crucially necessary in this case.  IF these tensions can be ratcheted down throw intelligent, moral negotiations, the whole of Asia will be breathing a lot more easily.   And THAT... is not a bad thing!!!!!!

Apollo 8 astronaut William Anders died in a fiery plane crash over Puget Sound in Washington on Friday. The tragic incident was caught on video. Anders was 90.

At the time of the airplane crash, Anders was piloting his vintage Beechcraft T-34 Mentor – a single-engine, propeller-driven aircraft primarily used for flight training during the 1950s by the United States Air Force and U.S. Navy.

Video taken by Phillip Person shows Anders' plane suddenly falling from the sky and crashing into the Puget Sound, just 80 feet from the shore of Jones Island.

Judge Juan Merchan has indicated that in a Facebook comment someone wrote, "My cousin is a juror and says Trump is getting convicted."

The jury found former President Donald Trump guilty on all counts in a New York criminal trial — the verdict was handed down on May 30.

'Thank you folks for all your hard work!!!!'

"Dear Counsel: Today, the Court became aware of a comment that was posted on the Unified Court System's public Facebook page and which I now bring to your attention," Merchan wrote.

"My cousin is a juror and says Trump is getting convicted," the comment from "Michael Anderson" said, according to Merchan's note. "Thank you folks for all your hard work!!!!" the comment read.

"The comment, now labeled as one week old, responded to a routine UCS notice, posted on May 29, 2024, regarding oral arguments in the Fourth Department of the Appellate Division unrelated to this proceeding," Merchan noted. "The posting, entitled 'The Appellate Division, Fourth Department, will hear oral arguments this morning at 10,' and the comment are both viewable at https://www.facebook.com/NewYorkCourts/."

The post on which Merchan said the comment had been left does not currently appear to be on the Facebook page he cited.

Pro-Palestinian activists demanding an end to the war in Gaza staged a massive protest that surrounded the White House, and there were smoke bombs ignited. Progressives vehemently demanded that President Joe Biden be arrested for war crimes for the U.S. involvement in the Israel-Hamas War.

Thousands of demonstrators descended on Washington on Saturday to demand a ceasefire in Gaza.

Julio Rosas – National Correspondent for Blaze Media – covered the protest and posted videos on his X social media account.

The crowd chanted: "Hey Joe Biden, you’re a sellout! Pack your bags and get the hell out! Biden you're a liar! We demand a ceasefire! How many kids have you killed today!"

During a House Oversight Committee hearing on Monday, Democratic Rep. Jamie Raskin repeated a discredited claim about President Donald Trump allegedly telling people to inject themselves with bleach to combat COVID-19. This statement was made in the context of discussing Trump, now the presumptive GOP presidential candidate.

Raskin, a Maryland congressman and the top Democrat on the committee, remarked that those “bowing down to a twice-impeached convicted felon, who told Americans to inject themselves with bleach, now want you to believe not only a big political lie but a big medical lie too.” The hearing was focused on the federal government’s transparency in its COVID pandemic response and featured testimony from then NIAID Director Dr. Anthony Fauci.

President Biden similarly repeated the false bleach claim during his campaign trail this year, which led to an embarrassing fact-check by the left-leaning PolitiFact in March. Biden stated, “Trump told Americans all they had to do was inject bleach in themselves, remember that? Not a joke, you think I am making this up. Just take a shot of UV light.”

The White House clarified to PolitiFact that Biden was referring to an April 23, 2020, White House press briefing where William Bryan, undersecretary for science and technology at the Department of Homeland Security, discussed the virus’ survival under certain conditions. Bryan mentioned that cleaning agents like bleach could kill SARS-CoV-2 on surfaces, and UV rays could significantly reduce the virus’s half-life.

During the briefing Trump mentioned Bryans idea about using light or disinfectant to combat COVID 19.

Sunny Hostin, the controversial co-host of ABC’s “The View,” has once again demonstrated her narrow-minded perspective on race and politics. During Friday’s episode, Hostin went on an ignorant rant, claiming that black conservatives are as mythical as unicorns, sparking outrage among viewers and highlighting the show’s lack of intellectual diversity.

The discussion centered around Republican Rep. Byron Donalds’ (FL) recent comments about black America under Jim Crow laws. While Joy Behar questioned Donalds’ knowledge of history and Ana Navarro emphasized the importance of appreciating the struggles and sacrifices that paved the way for Donalds’ opportunities, it was Hostin’s comments that truly showcased her flawed logic.

Hostin expressed disbelief at the idea of a room full of black Republicans, asking, “Where are they?” She cited statistics claiming that 81 percent of black men and over 95 percent of black women are part of the Democratic Party, suggesting that the black men Donalds spoke with were as rare as unicorns.

There seems to be a great amount of confusion and misunderstanding regarding the latest Plandemic-in-the-making. As follows:

The Latest “Bird Flu” Death is “Covid” All Over Again—[NOT]

The perpetrators of the COVID-19 Plandemic know that it’s now impossible to pull off another fake pandemic as they did with the non-existent SARS-CoV-2 beginning in January of 2020.  The world community of nations will simply resist any attempt to duplicate that engineered coronavirus hoax and society-destroying ruse.

However, that does not mean the same genocidal perps will not try to carry out a fake Bird Flu Plandemic with the explicit intention of decimating the world’s food supply.

The NWO scheme to manufacture a worldwide
famine by 2025 to starve much of humanity.

So what’s really going on here?

As we all know by now, The Powers That Be have an endless number of complex and convoluted conspiratorial plots on the shelf designed as global depopulation schemes (COVID-19 bioweapon & weaponized Covid ‘vaccines’), as well as national genocide operations (Ukraine & Gaza).

Next up on the New World Order agenda to systematically reduce the world’s population to 500 million are geoengineered famines and artificially manufactured mass starvations. See: 92 Million Chickens have been killed by the government for bogus bird flu BS

In order to accomplish these major objectives, the perps are running with the rapidly evolving Bird Flu Plandemic (which has very little chance of ever becoming a human pandemic).
