Less than a month before the intended vote, the proposed changes to the International Health Regulations and the draft Pandemic Agreement are still being negotiated.  On 16 April, a new draft of the amended International Health Regulations (“IHR”) was released.

In understanding the apparent reversals of some previous proposals in the latest draft, it is important to understand that the covid-19 response demonstrated great success in imposing a new model for responding to outbreaks under the current voluntary IHR. Powerful privately owned foundations with strong connections to the pharmaceutical industry heavily directed this new response.

The newly released draft now states it is non-binding, as is the current IHR, but otherwise, the intent of the draft is essentially unchanged.  The intent is to further centralise control of public health within WHO and base response to disease outbreaks on commodities, such as vaccines.

Mounting research suggests a serious side effect of the covid mRNA injections could be dementia, and the prions that cause it may be contagious.

Frameshifting, as we now know occurs in the covid injections, can induce prion production and lead to neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (“CJD”).

Sid Belzberg’s prions.rip website, which collected data on neurological side effects post-injection, found a notably high incidence of diagnosed CJD cases, suggesting an alarming trend.

Astronomers could finally show that alien life does exist on a distant planet following observations today. 

Planet K2-18b – which is more than twice as big as Earth and 120 light-years away – sits within the habitable zone of its star in the Leo constellation.  

Scientists said last year they thought they'd detected dimethyl sulphide gas in its atmosphere – a compound that is 'only produced by life'.

Now, to confirm the finding, the James Webb Space Telescope will undertake hours of observations of the planet on Friday.

Donald Trump returns to Manhattan for the third week of the hush money trial.

The former president will be sat in the courtroom while prosecutors carry on questioning Michael Cohen's former banker Gary Farro.

He testified on Friday that he helped Trump's disgraced former fixer open accounts, including the one used to pay porn star Stormy Daniels $130,000.

Trump is also facing a fine of up to $10,000 for contempt of court for violating the gag order in the case. 

Judge Juan Merchan has scolded his social media activity and could rule as soon as Tuesday.

Indonesia's Ruang volcano spectacularly erupted this morning, spewing explosive incandescent lava into the night sky and prompting authorities to warn of a possible tsunami.

Stunning footage shared by Indonesia's disaster mitigation agency showed strikes of lightning flashing above Ruang's crater, as fiery red clouds of lava and rocks were projected into the air and rained down around the island.

The agency said the eruption column reached three miles high, and urged any remaining residents within a four-mile radius to immediately evacuate, warning of possible further 'explosive eruptions'. 

The Centre for Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation (PVMBG) also warned residents living on Tagulandang island - the island closest to the volcano - that a tsunami could be triggered by volcanic material collapsing into the ocean.

Israel will launch an offensive into Rafah with or without a ceasefire and hostage release deal with Hamas in place, Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed today.

The city in southern Gaza is currently sheltering hundreds of thousands of Palestinians, with Israel's western allies, Arab neighbours and aid groups all warning that any assault by the IDF on the overcrowded city will result more civilian deaths.

But despite the warnings and the growing hope that a ceasefire deal could be struck soon, the Israeli Prime Minister said his forces would enter Rafah to destroy Hamas' battalions there 'with or without a deal.'

In a meeting with families of hostages held by militants in Gaza, Mr Netanyahu said: 'The idea that we will stop the war before achieving all of its goals is out of the question. We will enter Rafah and we will eliminate Hamas' battalions there - with a deal or without a deal, to achieve the total victory.'

The law, which aims to enforce a set of minimum security standards across the board and prevent vulnerable devices from being corralled into a DDoS botnet like Mirai, applies to the following products that can be connected to the internet -

  • Smart speakers, smart TVs, and streaming devices
  • Smart doorbells, baby monitors, and security cameras
  • Cellular tablets, smartphones, and game consoles
  • Wearable fitness trackers (including smart watches)
  • Smart domestic appliances (such as light bulbs, plugs, kettles, thermostats, ovens, fridges, cleaners, and washing machines)
  •  

Companies that fail to adhere to the provisions of the PSTI act are liable to face recalls and monetary penalties, attracting fines of up to £10 million ($12.5 million) or 4% of their global annual revenues, depending on whichever is higher.

A group of anti-Israel protesters at Columbia University have seized the historic Hamilton Hall, smashing windows, unfurling an intifada banner, and are refusing to leave, with their actions being compared to the January 6 insurrection. 

Protestors stormed and occupied the building on the main campus of the Manhattan university after smashing their way into the school. 

The occupation came nearly 12 hours after the deadline of 2pm on Monday for protestors to leave their protest encampment or face suspension.  

Due to the takeover, the school issued a stay away notice for members of staff telling them to avoid the Morningside campus on Tuesday morning.

They then limited access to the area to students residing in residential buildings on campus and essential employees only, and have yet to expel or arrest any of the students responsible.

Webmaster addition: These are likely agents provocateurs sent in to make the peaceful protesters look bad. Just like Jan 6!

Evidence Shows that Rep. Adam Schiff, who is running for US Senate in California, has committed election fraud, has ineligibly voted, and/or committed mortgage fraud. 

One year ago, in April 2023, we reported that an ethics complaint was filed against corrupt US Rep. Adam Schiff. Today, we can report that Schiff’s corrupt and even criminal acts involve much more.

In April 2023 we reported at The Gateway Pundit that an ethics complaint had been filed against US Rep. Adam Schiff.

Several opposition parties have attacked the proposal by French President Emmanuel Macron to share French nuclear weapons with the European Union. Macron’s controversy follows another recent one in which the erosion of France’s sovereignty and the legacy of Charles de Gaulle were highlighted in the most ironic way.

During a speech on April 28, Macron stated that the EU needs a common defence strategy and that French nuclear weapons could be a key component. According to him, this would provide the security guarantees that Europe expects and would also allow for neighbourly relations with Russia.

Macron stressed that a “credible European defence” needs to go beyond NATO, which “may mean deploying anti-missile shields” that will “block all missiles and deter the use of nuclear weapons.”

The French president said he was open to giving a more “European dimension” to vital interests, even if France’s doctrine has been to only use nuclear weapons when their own vital interests are threatened.

“I’m in favour of opening this debate, which must therefore include missile defence, long-range weapons and nuclear weapons for those who have them or who have American nuclear weapons on their soil,” he said.

However, his statements were criticised by all political parties.

I’ve been thinking about Moses, and his rage when he came down from the mount to find the Israelites worshipping a golden calf.

The ecofeminist in me was always uneasy about this story: what kind of God is jealous of animals? What kind of God wants to hoard all the sacredness of the Earth for himself?

But there is a less literal way of understanding this story. It is about false idols. About the human tendency to worship the profane and shiny, to look to the small and material rather than the large and transcendent.

What I want to say to you tonight at this revolutionary and historic Seder in the Streets is that too many of our people are worshipping a false idol once again. They are enraptured by it. Drunk on it. Profaned by it.

That false idol is called Zionism.

Israel is reportedly setting up a complex system of checkpoints that will prevent men of "military age" from fleeing Rafah in preparation for its offensive on the southern Gaza border city, a senior western official familiar with Israel's military plans has told Middle East Eye on condition of anonymity.

The checkpoints are designed to allow some women and children to leave Rafah ahead of an expected Israeli offensive, but unarmed, civilian Palestinian men will likely be separated from their families and remain trapped in Rafah during the assault.

The previously unreported disclosure of Israel's construction of a ring of checkpoints around Rafah underscores how Israel is pushing ahead with plans to attack the city where over one million displaced Palestinians are sheltering in tents and makeshift camps.

The creation of gender-based checkpoints around Rafah would put a spotlight back on Israel's practice of stripping and forcibly detaining male Palestinian men and children, as it faces rising scrutiny in the West of its conduct in the war.

The rounding up of Palestinian males in Gaza and photographing them stripped to their underwear drew condemnation in December, with the US calling the images "deeply disturbing."

Israel's preparations for an assault are occurring at the same time it continues down-to-the-wire truce talks with Hamas. A delegation from Hamas is set to visit Egypt on Monday for further negotiations.

The US, UN, European states and Arab powers are pushing to avert a Rafah offensive, which aid workers and diplomats say could spark a humanitarian disaster and potential refugee crisis.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Monday urged Hamas to accept the latest Israeli truce offer which he described as "extraordinarily, extraordinarily generous."

 

 

"In this moment, the only thing standing between the people of Gaza and a ceasefire is Hamas," Blinken said in Riyadh at the World Economic Forum.

In a review published on April 5, researchers argue that modification to mRNA causes immune suppression that may contribute to cancer development.

The mRNA used in the COVID-19 vaccines has been modified from its naturally occurring form to prevent degradation by the immune system when injected. In a review published on April 5, researchers argue that modification—specifically, N1-methyl-pseudouridine modification—to mRNA causes immune suppression that may contribute to cancer development.

Uridine is a key component of mRNA. However, when mRNA is injected into the body, it is broken down by cells and also triggers a broad immune response, leading to its rapid degradation. This immune response can be bypassed: researchers Katalinko Kariko, Ph.D., and Dr. Drew Weissman found that when uridine is modified to N1-methyl-pseudouridine (m1-psi), the mRNA is not degraded and proteins can be produced. The two were awarded a 2023 Nobel award for their findings.

Pfizer and Moderna therefore used this patented technology to ensure that the mRNA vaccines would be able to produce spike protein inside cells.

However, research suggests this modification may reduce immune responses. “Within the framework of COVID-19 vaccination, this inhibition ensures an appropriate spike protein synthesis and a reduced immune activation,” the authors wrote in the study’s abstract.

The authors are concerned the modification may promote cancer in susceptible individuals.

“We suggest that future clinical trials for cancers or infectious diseases should not use mRNA vaccines with a 100% m1Ψ (m1-psi) modification, but rather ones with the lower percentage of m1Ψ modification to avoid immune suppression,” they wrote.
