The U.S. bombing of Iraq, June 26, 1993, in retaliation for an alleged Iraqi plot to assassinate former president George Bush, “was essential,” said President Clinton, “to send a message to those who engage in state-sponsored terrorism … and to affirm the expectation of civilized behavior among nations.” 

Following is a list of prominent foreign individuals whose assassination (or planning for same) the United States has been involved in since the end of the Second World War. The list does not include several assassinations in various parts of the world carried out by anti-Castro Cubans employed by the CIA and headquartered in the United States.

Secret Service head Kimberly Cheatle's bizarre statement that her agency didn't properly secure a building used by a would-be assassin to shoot at Donald Trump because of a sloped roof is falling flat with a former top FBI official.

'I think this sort of micro-excuse for this and that just rings hollow,' former FBI Assistant Director Chris Swecker told DailyMail.com, hours after Cheatle floated the excuse.   

'I’m looking at that rooftop. Nobody’s saying you have to have somebody on the rooftop. You need to have eyes on the rooftop 100 percent of the time,' he said.

President Joe Biden allegedly could not recognize familiar faces at the North Atlantic Treaty Organization's (NATO) 75th anniversary summit in Washington, D.C. held last July 9 to 11, according to an attendee.

Ian Bremmer, president of the political risk consultancy firm Eurasia Group, disclosed this in a July 9 appearance on the MSNBC program "Katy Tur Reports." He attended the summit and talked to several world leaders. According to Bremmer, most of the world leaders he encountered at the summit "don't think [Biden] can serve another four years." He told program host Katy Tur that the sentiment is true across the political spectrum, regardless of political ideology, and that Biden's cognitive decline "isn't news to them."

The Secret Service was practically useless during the (thankfully) failed attempt against Donald Trump’s life, but even that meager protection would have been taken away if it were up to Democrats in the House of Representatives.

Nine House Democrats wanted to take away the Secret Service protection for Trump, leaving him completely at the will of would be assassins.

Granted the Secret Service was more like the Keystone Kops at Trump’s Pennsylvania rally and they almost got Trump killed. But Democrats didn’t even want that much protection for the former president.

These nine scumbags filed what they called the Denying Infinite Security and Government Resources Allocated toward Convicted and Extremely Dishonorable Former Protectees Act, or the DISGRACED Former Protectees Act. It would have amended the law to deny any candidate who has a criminal record from being eligible for SS protection.

Webmaster addition: So the plot to assassinate Trump goes back at least that far.

Thomas Crooks was spotted by security as a person of interest at former President Donald Trump’s rally long before Crooks fired the bullet that killed a spectator and wounded Trump and two others, according to a new report.

“Earlier in the day, he went through Secret Service security WITH his rangefinder and scoped out the snipers, who spotted him and said they need to keep an eye on him,” News Busters journalist Curtis Houck wrote in a post on X.

A letter by Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.) claims that the United States Air Force is continuing to push the Biden administration’s diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI agenda) in direct violation of federal law.

In a letter obtained by The Daily Wire, Banks addressed Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Manpower & Reserve Affairs Alex Wagner, claiming that the Air Force had disguised the implementation of its DEI agenda to thwart provisions in the 2024 National Defense Authorization ACT (NDAA) that prevent the Defense Department from adding new DEI positions or filling any vacant DEI positions.

Banks, who serves as the chairman of the House Subcommittee on Military Personnel, wrote, “Rather than following the law, it appears that the Air Force has simply rebranded DEI.”

I don’t have to tell you that social media was on fire in the minutes following the attempt on Trump’s life. News was coming out thick and fast and users were commenting on it immediately. Social network X was no exception, with millions of Trump supporters commenting on the horrific event.

One of those people was X owner Elon Musk. Soon after it was learned that Trump survived an assassin’s bullet, Musk posted this message.

I fully endorse President Trump and hope for his rapid recovery pic.twitter.com/ZdxkF63EqF

— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 13, 2024

The rebel billionaire has never shied away from expressing his views. He has frequently criticized Democrats and the Biden administration. Musk outraged liberals when he bought Twitter and turned it into a free speech haven. Now, the left is going to lose it when they discover Musk’s plan to help Trump win big.

Iran has formally rejected claims by anonymous US intelligence sources in US media this week that the Islamic Republic is supposedly plotting to kill Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump. Prolific Iranian-American political observer Dr. Mohammad Marandi tells Sputnik why the claims make no sense, and what they are designed to conceal.

Iran considers former president Donald Trump a “criminal” who “must be prosecuted and punished” for the January 2020 assassination of IRGC Quds Force commander Qasem Soleimani, but “has chosen the legal path to bring him to justice,” the Iranian mission to the United Nations has told Sputnik.

The allegations made in US media this week that Tehran was plotting to kill Trump using extrajudicial means are “unsubstantiated and malicious,” the mission added, echoing comments made by other Iranian officials that the allegations carry no substance whatsoever.

The Iwo Jima 2.0 pic, immortalizing the Trump fist surviving an assassination attempt, has taken the world by storm – generating everything from a meme tsunami on China’s Weibo to fresh anime in Japan. Not to mention the deluge of hats and T-shirts.

The inestimable Alastair Crooke has explained how Sullivan and Little Blinkie’s deliberations are “spread through a matrix of interlocking ‘clusters’ that includes the Military Industrial Complex, Congressional leaders, Big Donors, Wall Street, the Treasury, the CIA, the FBI, a few cosmopolitan oligarchs and the princelings of the security-intelligence world.”

Yet the key – invisible – point is who (italics mine) tells Sullivan and Blinkie what to do.

These are the people who really (italics mine) run the show: the Big Families, and the Big Donors – old money and especially new money (as in invisible Vanguard shareholders).

They are all stunned.

They never thought it would come to this debacle – even if Joe Biden was expressly chosen for what he is: a crude, corrupt, easily-manipulated lackey, and head of a crime family. Everyone in a position of real power in the Blob knew he was becoming a zombie ages ago.

Establishmentarians and other radicals have in recent years wished ill upon President Donald Trump, circulated images glorifying violence against him, and trafficked in the kind of violent and dehumanizing rhetoric that some have suggested set the stage for the deadly attack that took place Saturday in Pennsylvania.

Middling comedian Kathy Griffin posed, for instance, for a photograph in 2017 holding up a bloody likeness of a decapitated Trump.

When Hurricane Dorian made landfall in 2019, a former Canadian prime minister tweeted, "I'm rooting for a direct hit on Mar a Lago."

Geriatric performer Madonna indicated in a 2017 speech at the Women's March in Washington, D.C., that she had been contemplating "blowing up the White House" while Trump occupied it.

Webmaster addition: The hateful rhetoric was very bad, but had nothing to do with the attempted assassination of Trump. That was clearly an attempt to "remove the competition" going into the elections.

Researchers have figured out a fascinating new way to tell if a portrait of a human was AI-generated or not: by using the same techniques astronomers use to analyze observations of galaxies.

As detailed in research presented at this year's Royal Astronomical Society’s National Astronomy Meeting, a team led by University of Hull masters student Adejumoke Owolabi found that light reflections in the eyes of deepfaked humans simply don't line up.

"The reflections in the eyeballs are consistent for the real person, but incorrect (from a physics point of view) for the fake person," said University of Hull professor of astrophysics Kevin Pimbblet in a statement.

It's an ingenious and unorthodox application of scientific research that could have useful implications as AI image generators become eerily good at generating photorealistic images of people who don't exist, blurring the lines between reality and a deepfaked alternative universe.

China aims to avoid coal shortages during the peak summer demand season by stockpiling coal and increasing production.

China boosted its coal production in June to the highest level in six months as it looked to meet power demand for cooling in the summer and as eased mining safety inspections allowed some mines to resume operations. 

Chinese coal production stood at 405.38 million metric tons in June, the highest volume since December 2023 and a 3.6% rise compared to June last year, according to data from China’s National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) reported by Reuters on Monday.  

Earlier this year, Chinese coal output was weaker, due to numerous safety inspections at mines following deadly incidents, and lowered production in the province of Shanxi, China’s top coal-producing area, which accounts for nearly 30% of domestic output. 

Claire's Observations:  Coal mining and processing are, by their very natures very dirty, dangerous businesses, no matter how many safety features are put in place.

That being said, coal provides proven energy to fuel power plants; and the Proletariat running China understand this; they did not get to their places in the "governmental pecking order" of the CCP through stupidity.

And to Greta Thunsberg, the literal "Poster Child" for the "Climatistas", a word, please.

There are moments, when one can almost appreciate your misplaced anger, and your rage against a world which, essentially, still runs on fossil fuel, because it works.

But here's an idea whose time has come.  

Instead of screaming at the major polluters (which has not worked, and will not work), why don't  you develop a collaboration with universities around the world, for developing cheap, workable alternative power, which will leave wind and solar in the utter dust because of their unreliability?!?  

We have some great brains in these institutions, and the prize would be money for science scholarships for the collaboration which comes up with the answer to the needs for energy the most quickly.  Then, go to your friends who fund these kinds of causes, and get your "seed money" which would be  handled by a blind trust.  Get your friends in PR to promote the heck out of this.

Greta, to turn your campaign from bitterly nagging and Quixotic to something positive for the entire planet, please consider this; it could positively impact the lives of every person on planet earth in ways you cannot possibly imagine.

The Secret Service was warned about Thomas Matthew Crooks and designated him as a “threat” 10 minutes before former President Donald Trump took the stage, but allowed him to go on anyway, law enforcement sources told The Post.

The agency was also warned that there was a “character of suspicion” on the grounds more than an hour before Saturday’s deadly shooting at Trump’s campaign rally in Butler, Pennsylvania, sources said.

Fox News first reported the new details, which emerged during a stunning Senate briefing by the Secret Service on Wednesday.

Billionaire Bill Gates has admitted that he and his globalist allies have been using the general public as “guinea pigs” to test dangerous mRNA technology with Covid shots.

In early 2020, Bill Gates was leading “the race to create a COVID-19 vaccine”.

Yes, seriously, a software billionaire was dominating international vaccination policy, as Gates has done for years via the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, see for example the Global Vaccine Action Plan.

In his GatesNotes article in April 2020, Gates insists:

In April 2020, Gates laments that ‘traditional’ vaccines are “time-consuming to make”, and was enthusiastic about new approaches “to get the vaccines out to the whole world much faster”.

President Joe Biden posted a bizarre tweet saying 'I'm sick' shortly after testing positive for COVID, leaving America guessing as to the seriousness of his condition.

Three minutes later, he added: 'of Elon Musk and his rich buddies trying to buy this election.'

He then asked for money to help 'defeat Trump'.

The confusing posts came as Biden, 81, was forced to cancel a speech in Las Vegas while trying to fight back against widespread calls for him to drop out of the race.

He took the COVID test when he started getting a runny nose and a cough.

Later, he gingerly boarded Air Force One, using the shorter of the two sets of stairs, for a flight home to Delaware to begin isolation.

Webmaster addition: I don't think Biden has Covid. For one thing, he wasn't wearing a mask when he climbed the stairs to Air Force One.

I think this is just an excuse for Biden to step down rather than admit he is dragging the entire Democratic party down

with him.

CNN called me to profile the would-be assassin of Donald Trump during the rally in Butler, PA. I know they wanted me to say he was a lone wolf and that was allit was. But, I told them I could not say that as it is clear to me he had help achieving his goal of shooting Donald Trump. Who was making this assassination attempt possible? I would have to believe the Secret Service - someone high up at that location - called the shots…and allowed the shot.

In 2023, Gavin Newsom announced a $15 billion plan to address homelessness in California, emphasizing accountability. However, a state audit revealed that California had spent $24 billion on homelessness over the past five years without consistently tracking how the money was used or its effectiveness in reducing homelessness. This audit highlighted significant gaps in accountability and transparency in managing these funds.

The crisis that broke out after the attempt on Donald Trump’s life put the principle in motion. I was posting regular updates and never censored. I’m not aware of anyone who was.

We were getting second-by-second updates in real time. The videos were flying along with every conceivable rumor, many false and then corrected, alongside free speech “spaces” in which everyone was sharing their views. 

Over time, I realized something. X was driving the whole of the news, while the newscasters had to wait for permission before reading scripted lines. 

Meanwhile, on X, the situation was utterly wild. Posts were flying fast and furious. New rumors would circulate (the shooter’s name and affiliations, stories about a second shooting, claims that Trump was hit in the chest, and so on). But shortly after the rumor circulated, so did the debunking. The feature called “Community Notes” kept the faulty news in check, while the truth gradually circulated to the top. This happened on topic after topic.

Following Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s trips to Kyiv, Moscow and Beijing, the EU has launched a partial boycott of meetings organized by the rotating presidency, while 63 MEPs are now calling for Hungary’s EU voting rights to be entirely suspended.

Under the boycott, the EU will only send civil servants, not commissioners, to meetings chaired by Hungary.Not every European leader is on board with these decisions. For example, Austrian Chancellor Karl Nehammer says boycotting Hungary is not a good solution

Claire's Observations:  Unflipping bloody unbelievable!!! This EU response, can only be characterised  as "Collective madness, writ large."

 Orban is not waltzing to either NATO or the EU's tunes of war, and the rest of the EU is going to punish him in this way?!?  

Europe MUST have an overabundance of "useless eaters" which a shooting war with Russia will surely eliminate, particularly with Russia's superior weaponry.  

And what happens when the EU has a mass wave of "refuseniks" in their respective countries, who understand that wars are, ultimately, economic in their origin?!?  All wars are bankers' wars, and war is ultimately about protecting the monied and privileged class. 

I am having one hell of a hard time, believing that the EU could be so deliberately stupid in its condemnation of this guy; they should really heed his forward thinking, pragmatic approach to the issue of war with Russia.    

The guy has the horse-sense to want to avoid this, and as someone who has been watching Russia's military make utter mincemeat  of US weaponry  in Ukraine, I think he is absolutely correct in his assessment that an EU/NATO war against Russia would be a catastrophic mistake.
