"There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution" -- Aldous Huxley, 1931

Washington's military presence in the countries does not contribute to Middle Eastern peace but makes American soldiers a target, a new Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft report has concluded.

American and coalition forces deployed in the Middle East have come under attack a whopping 73 times since October 17, according to the US press. The number of strikes against US military deployments has increased amid the Gaza War between the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and Palestinian Islamists.

For his part, Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah hinted in his statement earlier this month that attacks on US assets and personnel from Yemen, Iraq and other locations are related to Washington's support to Israel, as well as an unprecedented US military buildup in the region.

"To the Americans, I say: If you want the secondary fronts to stop, you must cease the aggression on Gaza," the Hezbollah leader stressed on November 11.

The non-standard types of warfare that emerged in the 21st century may be more effective than “classic” warfare, explained Iranian military analyst Mohammad-Hassan Sangtarash.

Iranian authorities have announced the creation of a center for research of new types of warfare that emerged in the 21st century.

The research center in question is reportedly dedicated to exploring the warfare related to areas including radar, biological, sound and quantum domains, according to local media reports.

Iranian military analyst Mohammad-Hassan Sangtarash told Sputnik that “non-standard types of warfare involve new methods of waging war and new types of armaments,” and that some military experts consider such types of warfare “more effective than the classic ones.”

“This is why a new research center was created in the Iranian army, where various types and concepts of warfare are being researched and new types of armaments are going to be developed,” he said.

Three lawsuits attempting to bankrupt a constitutional scholar for giving the prior Republican president legal advice will cost him $3 to $3.5 million, John Eastman said Friday. Eastman was a target of Democrats’ illegal Jan. 6 Committee and has been harassed by the FBI and courts since assisting Donald Trump in 2020 constitutional litigation.

“This is what I call the authoritarian moment in our history,” Eastman told reporter Julie Kelly and podcast cohost Liz Sheld. “The whole premise here is: ‘The government has spoken and you continue to say otherwise. Therefore you must be lying.'”

Eastman’s legal defense fund has raised more than half a million dollars so far, “less than a third of what we’ve already incurred and less than about a sixth or seventh of what we’re likely to incur before we’re done,” Eastman said. To defend himself legally in a Georgia prosecutor’s case against Trump and dozens of his associates, Eastman needs to raise $1 million by February, he said: “I’m trying very hard not to completely deplete my wife’s retirement fund.”

In the Baltic Sea – home of the twisted wreckage of the Nord Stream pipelines – another pipeline was recently damaged along with telecommunications cables.

Western officials are making escalatory statements and are again floating the idea of closing the “NATO lake” to Russian ships, which would likely be viewed by Moscow as an act of war.

Onshore, Finland is rapidly militarizing its border with Russia. And a notable Chinese cargo ship is now at the center of the firestorm.

The global financial landscape is witnessing a seismic shift as the United Arab Emirates (UAE) boldly moves away from the US dollar in its oil trade dealings.

This strategic pivot aligns with the broader ambitions of the BRICS economic alliance, of which the UAE is a recent addition.

The changeover, involving the transition to local currencies for oil transactions, marks a significant departure from the long-established dollar dominance in the global oil market.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is on thin ice.

That’s the conclusion of international affairs and security analyst Mark Sleboda, who joined Sputnik’s Political Misfits crew Monday to discuss the ongoing political drama in the country in the wake of the country’s failed counteroffensive this year.

“He fears another Maidan… he fears a coup,” said Sleboda, referring to the 2014 protests that saw far-right mobs drive elected president Viktor Yanukovych out of Ukraine. The unrest, openly backed by Western powers, was supported by only a minority of the Ukrainian population but succeeded in firmly shifting the politics of the country towards a Russophobic stance.

Sleboda believes the primary challenger to Zelensky’s power is Valerii Zaluzhny, the current commander-in-chief of the Ukrainian military. Political forces inside and outside the country may be coalescing around Zaluzhny as an alternative to Zelensky’s leadership, according to Sleboda.

According to Noah at 100percentfedup, he asked Google’s Bard AI to give a state-by-state breakdown of who won each state in the 2020 election in two different categories: in person election day votes and mail-in ballots.

The data given is below.

Former President Donald Trump won the “in person vote” in ALL 50 states in 2020, while Biden only won the “mail-in ballot” vote for each state.

Trump won the in-person vote in Hawaii and Delaware, with a close margin of 71% to 27%. In Delaware, he won the Election Day vote by 49.25%, while Biden won the absentee vote in reliably red states like Arkansas and South Carolina. Data shows Trump won the Election Day vote in every state, while Biden won the absentee vote in almost every state.

Small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have been developed to be carried by and operate alongside Russian Su-57 fifth generation fighter aircraft, according to an informed source cited by state media. "Mini-UAVs to be used for various purposes have been created for the Su-57, which the aircraft will be able to carry on an external sling and inside the fuselage, and drop in the air. It is planned that the fighter will launch several drones at once and control this group of drones," the source stated. The source elaborated that the UAVs will be able to launch air strikes, conduct electronic warfare, and provide reconnaissance, and will reportedly be dropped in groups by Su-57 units to break through enemy air defences. Doing so can capitalise on the Su-57’s high endurance and stealth capabilities, which allow each fighter to carry a considerable payload of smaller aircraft over long distances while masking its presence from enemy assets. The Russian Air Force is set to form its first full strength Su-57 squadron in 2024, with the fighters’ production rate having reportedly doubled in 2023 to an estimated 12 airframes per year.

Former U.S. Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund turned heads with a shocking revelation during recent congressional testimony regarding a request to deploy National Guard troops to the U.S. Capitol Building ahead of then-President Donald Trump’s Jan. 6, 2021 speech, which was followed by a riot.

Sund told lawmakers that three days before the incident, then-House Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving rejected Sund’s request to deploy hundreds of Guard soldiers because Irving told him then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) would “never go for it,” The Epoch Times reported.

Sund made his revelation to the House Oversight Committee during a 90-minute hearing, the outlet reported.

In his first testimony before a House committee since he was forced to resign on Jan. 8, two days after the incident — he wasn’t called at all to testify before Pelosi’s hand-picked Jan. 6 Committee — Sund explained how he was frustrated by the refusal of the offer of troops because their presence that day, he believes, would have been a “game-changer.”

A former White House doctor is warning that President Joe Biden’s cognitive decline is going to come on faster and faster now that he is past the age of 80, so it will continue to get worse, not better. And it has become a national security threat.

The warning came from Texas Republican Rep. Ronny Jackson, a former White House physician, Fox News reported.

Appearing on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” the former doctor who served former Presidents George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and Donald Trump said, “[The decline is] happening quickly.”

There is a growing body of compelling evidence showing that Russia and Ukraine were involved in serious negotiations to end the war in Ukraine right after it started on 24 February 2022 (see below). These talks were facilitated by Turkish President Recep Erdogan and former Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and featured detailed and candid discussions on the terms of a possible settlement.

By all accounts, these negotiations, which took place in March-April 2022, were making real progress when Britain and the US told Ukrainian President Zelensky to abandon them, which he did. 

Coverage of these events has focused on how foolish and irresponsible it was for President Joe Biden and Prime Minister Boris Johnson to put an end to these negotiations, given all the death and destruction that Ukraine has suffered since then – in a war that Kyiv is likely to lose.

The Military Intelligence non-commissioned officer (NCO) who provided a warning that Hamas intends to carry out a massacre in the Gaza border communities told her commanders that Hamas had ended a drill with the words, “we have completed the murder of all the residents of the kibbutz.”

The NCO, who we can only identify by her initial V, wrote three documents in the six months prior to the October 7 attack in which she warned that Hamas had completed a series of training exercises simulating a raid on kibbutzim and IDF outposts on the Israeli side of the border. Sources who viewed the warnings said that “in retrospect, reading the documents is chilling.”

In July, the NCO, who specializes in enemy military doctrine, reported that Hamas had completed a further set of military exercises. One of the documents contained a shocking statement that was included in the intelligence and exposed Hamas’ intention to grievously harm the residents of the kibbutzim.

Coup leaders in Niger have overturned an eight-year-old law criminalising migrant smuggling in the country.

The legislation allowed authorities to take action against smugglers who transported migrants through Niger's vast desert on to Libya and Europe.

But President Mohamed Bazoum - who had worked with the EU to stem the flow of people across the Mediterranean - was overthrown in July in a coup.

Gen Abdourahmane Tchiani has since declared himself the new head of state.

His ruling junta announced the repeal in a statement, saying the law "did not take into account the interests of Niger and its citizens".

It also said convictions handed down under the 2015 law would be "erased".

In a recent budget announcement, Freiland Bitch revealed a comprehensive set of measures signaling significant financial support for Canadian journalists. The Trudeau government is set to cover a substantial 55% of journalists’ salaries, albeit with a notable twist—this aid is exclusively directed towards newspapers and news organizations deemed “reliable.”

Turkey's significant increase in exports of critical goods to Russia sparks fears of sanctions evasion, leading to urgent diplomatic discussions and potential ramifications for Turkey's relations with NATO.

Turkish exports of essential goods to Russia, crucial for Moscow's military production, have experienced a significant spike in 2023.

This surge has intensified worries about potential sanctions circumvention, with the United States and the European Union actively seeking to curb Russia's access to dual-use goods through third-party nations.

Turkey recorded a staggering €144 million in exports of 45 goods, including microchips marked as "high priority" by the US, to Russia and five "former Soviet countries" suspected of acting as intermediaries for Moscow during the first nine months of 2023.

This Wednesday, the Supreme Court will hear a case that poses the most direct challenge yet to the legitimacy of the modern federal government. The right-wing legal movement’s target is the “administrative state”—the agencies and institutions that set standards for safety in the workplace, limit environmental hazards and damage, and impose rules on financial markets to ensure their stability and basic fairness, among many other important things. The case, Securities and Exchange Commission v. Jarkesy, threatens all of that. Terrifyingly, this gambit might succeed.

The case involves garden-variety securities fraud. George R. Jarkesy Jr., a right-wing activist and conservative-radio talk-show host, ran a pair of investment funds with $24 million in assets. But he misrepresented how the funds were run, paid himself and his partner exorbitant fees, and inflated the assets’ value. As punishment, the SEC fined him several hundred thousand dollars and prohibited him from working in some parts of the securities industry—very standard stuff.

Jarkesy responded with what can be described only as chutzpah. He didn’t just contest the SEC’s ruling; he alleged that the SEC’s entire process against him was unconstitutional. Among other things, he asserted that Congress never had the authority to empower the SEC and that the SEC adjudicator who punished him was too independent from presidential control.

Independent news anchor Tucker Carlson has issued a warning to the American people about California’s Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom.

Newsom is being widely accused of running a shadow campaign for the 2024 presidential election.

Some believe Newsom may be planning to launch a primary challenge against Democrat President Joe Biden.

However, some argue that the Democrats are planning to replace Biden with Newsom.

Either way, the rumors have led many to question what America under “President Newsom” could look like.

The very thought of such a scenario is striking the fear of God into many, who are now starting to raise the alarm.

Liberty Counsel, a Christian organization which has been fighting against the War On Christmas since Boxing Day, 1989 has a post on their website called MI Schools’ Racial Christmas Directives Are Unconstitutional, .November 27, 2023

Liberty Counsel sent a demand letter to Superintendent David Hornak of Holt Public Schools in Michigan regarding the unconstitutional bans on Christmas holiday symbols, decorations, and expression contained in a so-called “Racial Guide” sent to teachers in 2021, 2022, and any that will be published this year. As a result of multiple complaints from teachers, Liberty Counsel has demanded the school district retract the “Decentering Christmas”/“Holiday Celebrations”/“Racial Justice Guide” email published December 3, 2021, “Winter Celebrations Communications FAQ” published December 2, 2022, and any similar  unconstitutional bans and directives promulgated in 2023.

At Saturday’s great march in support of Palestine in London, police arrested members of the Communist Party of Great Britain Marxist-Leninist (CPGBML) for having a pamphlet on sale on their stall.

The “illegal” pamphlet is entitled Zionism: A Racist, Anti-Semitic and Reactionary Tool of Imperialism.

Just what is illegal about it, I do not know. The authorship is ascribed to the CPGBML. I have looked through it and it is scrupulous in distinguishing between zionism and judaism. Criticism of Israel and of the zionist movement is not anti-semitic.

I suspect what may have upset the authorities are the passages on collaboration between some leaders of the zionist movement and the Nazis.
