“Let me be clear, we reject the ICC’s application for arrest warrants against Israeli leaders,” U.S. President Joe Biden told his audience at a Jewish American Heritage Month event at the White House on Monday. 

Biden criticized the request for arrest warrants as creating a “false equivalence” between Israel and Hamas. By making that statement, Biden took a clear stance against the rule of law, under which any party, regardless of any other status, must be dealt with the same way. 

He also clarified again, if anyone was still unclear on the point, that the United States rejects accountability for itself and its allies, but holds rigorous standards in that regard for its enemies. Just over a year ago, Biden said that an ICC arrest warrant against Russian President Vladimir Putin was “justified” because he had “clearly committed war crimes.” 

The hypocrisy is par for the American course. But Biden is now faced with a dilemma. He and other senior officials in his administration have indicated that they will use more than words in response to the ICC Prosecutor’s request. Some in Congress are essentially calling for all-out war on the Court. But Biden is likely to be reluctant to go that far.

On Wednesday, during markup of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2025, the U.S. House Armed Services Committee approved an amendment to the NDAA that would automatically register all draft-aged male U.S. residents with the Selective Service System for a possible military draft, based on information from other Federal databases.

This system of automatic draft registration would replace the system in effect since 1980 in which young men can decide for themselves whether or not to sign up for the draft – and so many choose not to register that the Selective Service database would be useless for an actual draft.

The automatic draft registration proposal was instigated by the Selective Service System as part of its annual budget request to Congress, introduced in the HASC by Rep. Chrissy Houlahan (D-PA), “wholeheartedly” endorsed by HASC Chair Mike Rogers (R-AL), and approved by voice vote of the full committee without audible opposition.

Rep. Houlahan had been one of the leading proponents of proposals in previous years to expand draft registration to women as well as men. Her latest proposal for automatic registration of men only for a military draft indicates that she is more deeply committed to militarization than to any purported feminism.

The provisions for automatic draft registration are now included in the version of the NDAA that will go to the House floor. The NDAA is a “must-pass” bill, so these provisions are likely to remain in the version of the NDAA adopted later this year by the full House unless some House member introduces, and the full House agrees to vote on and approves, a floor amendment to remove them. It remains to be seen whether a similar provision will be included in the Senate version of the NDAA, although we fear that this may be likely.

Claire's Observations:  this is what a government does, when it knows, for a dead moral certainty, it is creating a situation which will result in a world war.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken is leading a push within the Biden administration to allow Ukraine to use US-provided missile systems and other weapons to hit Russian territory, The New York Times reported on Wednesday.

The report said there is a “vigorous debate” within the administration in the wake of Russia’s new offensive in Kharkiv, which was launched from over the border in Russia’s Belgorod oblast.

It’s unclear how many other high-level officials agree with Blinken, but the pressure is growing on President Biden to lift the prohibition on Ukraine using US weapons on Russian territory, a ban that, according to the Times, is designed to “avoid World War III.”

House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) and many other members of Congress are also calling to lift the ban. Ultra-hawk Victoria Nuland, who left the State Department in March, appeared on ABC News this week to make the pitch for Ukraine to extend its use of US weapons to Russian territory.

“I think there’s also a question of whether we, the United States and our allies, ought to give them more help in hitting Russian bases, which heretofore we have not been willing to do,” Nuland said.

“I think if the attacks are coming directly from over the line in Russia, that those bases ought to be fair game, whether they are where missiles are being launched from or where they are where troops are being supplied from,” she added.

Moscow recently warned the UK that if Ukraine used British weapons on Russian territory, Russian forces would target UK military sites in Ukraine “and beyond.” The warning came after British Foreign Secretary David Cameron said Ukraine had the “right” to use British arms in attacks on Russia.

Russia is currently conducting tactical nuclear drills that it launched in response to provocative rhetoric from Western officials about sending troops to Ukraine. The Times report said that the US was also considering deploying troops for training, although Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Charles Q. Brown said there were “no plans” to do so at the moment.

Claire's Observations:  Who, please, in their right mind, is listening to Nuland?  Does her foreign policy "track record" make her someone to be "respected", or potentially avoided like a "gain-of-function enhanced" plague outbreak? 

 Whatever this woman has conjured or plotted in her professional life, death and destruction followed her like a pair of wretchedly mutilated twins. https://www.counterpunch.org/2021/01/25/basic-notes-on-victoria-fuck-the-eu-nuland/

And Tony  Blinken, WHAT THE HELL?!?!?  Sir, you have the expertise and information to understand that the US is seriously unable to confront Russia (and/or China) if it comes to a physical war.  We don't have the troop strength; we don't have the weaponry (as proven by Russian military using our weapons for target practice in Ukraine); we don't have the money, and we certainly don't have the manufacturing to pursue a successful war against Russia (and/or China).  

Sir, forgive me, but have you been snorting waaaaay too much of that "hopium/changium, leading to that horrible thief of real perception, otherwise called :"magical thinking"?!?  

Because I have got to tell you;  these do not sound like the thoughts of a rational human being who understands fully the state of the US military, relative to the states of either the Russian and Chinese military.

Please tell me, how many Chuck Berry’s (originator of Rock ‘N Roll music), Oprah Winfrey’s (the second Black billionaire and popular actress and TV host), Denzel Washington’s (top Black actor and philanthropist), LeBron James’ (top black basketball player and politically outspoken Democrat) have been flushed down the abortionist’s toilet?

Note, the list of above personages are all black. It is worth noting that the aborting of black babies per capita, is greater than that of white babies! Is that the result of the racist understandings of people like the Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger?

My second question is; what is it that is being “aborted”? Is it a piece of tissue? If so, then what happens to that tissue if it is allowed to thrive? If abortion is o.k. right up until the moment of delivery, then why are there in utero surgeries that are performed as early as 16 weeks (40 weeks being full gestation)? What are they operating on – a piece of tissue, or a human being? Can’t be both!

A dramatic surge of turbo cancer deaths is being recorded around the world among teenagers and young adults who have been vaccinated with Covid mRNA shots.

An alarming new study uncovered the shocking spike in official government data.

The study shows that not only have cancer diagnoses skyrocketed since 2021, but the time frame between diagnosis and death in young people has been significantly reduced.

According to a new study, official government data shows that turbo cancer death rates have sparing in young people aged 15- to 44 years old over the past three years.

Since 2021, doctors around the world have been reporting surging cases of deadly turbo cancers.

People who have been vaccinated with Covid mRNA injections have been suffering from a high incidence of these fast-developing cancers.

Deadly and highly progressive neurodegenerative diseases are soaring among those who have been “vaccinated” with Covid mRNA shots, doctors are warning.

Since the rollout of the Covid injections, skyrocketing cases have emerged of these once-rare disorders.

Prion diseases, which hollow out the brain and lead to rapid death, have increased over the last three years.

According to the medical literature, many new cases have occurred after the administration of COVID-19 mRNA vaccines.

Because prions rapidly destroy similar protein types, the disease can be transmissible if an individual is exposed to organs or blood already affected by prions.

One of the main prion diseases is called Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD).

CJD was traditionally seen as an extremely rare neurological and degenerative disease, representing approximately 1 case per one million people.

Traditionally, there are approximately 350 cases of sporadic CJD in the United States each year. CJD cases make up 90 percent of all prion diseases.

In April 2023, medical researchers documented a fatal case of CJD after the 68-year-old patient received a second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.

Another case documented in September 2022 involved a 59-year-old man suspected of having CJD, who developed symptoms following multiple COVID-19 vaccinations.

In a third researched case, a 68-year-old woman suffered rapid memory loss, behavior changes, headaches, and gait disturbance a week after COVID-19 vaccination.

We’ve all read the headlines, “Guns are the number one killer of kids in America.”  Unfortunately, that headline is grossly misleading.

To better understand children and firearms, we must first understand the definitions of adolescents and exactly what gun violence is. Looking at data with clearly defined terminology is the first step to having an effective conversation on this topic — otherwise, we will never get to the root of the problem.

Our research focuses on children and adolescents <1-17 to paint a clearer picture of adolescents and guns in the U.S.

Report Highlights:

  • Children, as defined, are individuals at or below the age of 13, and, therefore, the top three causes of injury-related deaths in children are suffocation, motor vehicle accidents, and drowning.
  • Children have a 0.0009% chance of dying due to a firearm-related injury based on data from the CDC in 2022.
  • Teens ages 14 to 17 comprise 78% of all firearm-related deaths in the <1-17 age group.
  • 70% of all firearm-related deaths in the <1-17 age group occur in metropolitan and urban areas with more than 250,000 people.
  • Gang membership often begins at 14 years of age, and this is the age when firearm-related deaths become more prevalent.

Heather Idoni received a sentence of two years in prison on Wednesday for her role in a pro-life protest. She was convicted of violating the FACE Act during an October 2020 protest at an abortion facility in Washington, D.C., according to a statement by the Justice Department. The Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act, or FACE Act, makes it illegal to block the entrance to medical buildings, including abortion facilities. Another pro-life protester, Paulette Harlow, is scheduled for sentencing later this month.

A senior FBI official reportedly advised his agents to use the agency’s warrantless surveillance authority against targets on American soil.

This is according to Wired, who obtained an internal e-mail in which Paul Abbate, a deputy director for the FBI, pressed his subordinates to find ways they can leverage Section 702 authority against U.S. citizens on American soil.

Part of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, Section 702 was originally set up in 2008 as a way to surveil threats from hostile actors who are taking part in crimes such as arms proliferation, terrorism, drug trafficking and cyber crimes. As long as one of the parties in the communications being surveilled is reasonably believed to be a non-citizen situated outside of the U.S., government agencies can compel American companies to intercept communications without a search warrant. It states that they can eavesdrop on a range of communications, including phone calls, emails and text messages, among others, without obtaining a search warrant.

However, Section 702 is often misused by the FBI, who has been accused of targeting journalists, American protesters and a sitting member of Congress with this authority. Despite the controversy, the program was extended for two more years in April after an extensive debate and over the objections of some conservative and progressive lawmakers.

Houthi-aligned security services in Yemen have allegedly busted an American-Israeli spy ring, arresting members accused of espionage and sabotage.

The crackdown occurred on Monday, May 6, with Houthi-controlled Saba News Agency claiming that Yemeni security services had imprisoned multiple spies working for the United States and Israel. The news agency released footage of the imprisoned men, describing them as “spies recruited to collect information and monitor sites operated by the [Houthi] armed forces on Yemen’s western coast for the benefit of the American and Israeli enemy.”

The spies were allegedly recruited after the Houthis began targeting vessels in the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden in November. This campaign, which disrupted global trade immensely, was in solidarity with the Palestinian people amid Israel’s invasion of Gaza and the mounting deaths of innocent Palestinians.

The report did not indicate the number of suspects arrested, but unconfirmed images Saba shared on social media showed no less than 18 people. But Saba mentioned that the suspects had already confessed.

Money queen and globalist villain Janet Yellen is back in Germany threatening punishment unless German leaders obey her orders to heighten their compliance with Russian sanctions.

The United States Treasury head met with bankers in Frankfurt this week to crack the whip of tyranny now that it is becoming painfully obvious that Russia is winning against Ukraine and everything the corrupt Zelensky regime represents.

Russia continues to procure what Yellen described as “sensitive goods” from Germany as part of its special military operation in Ukraine, and Yellen wants it to stop, or else.

According to Yellen, the U.S. government, aka deep state, has assumed the authority to strike foreign banks such as those in Germany with secondary sanctions if there is even a whiff of Russian military-related transactions.

“I urge all institutions here to take heightened compliance measures and to increase your focus on Russian evasion attempts,” Yellen bellowed, threatening to bar Germany and other offending countries from being allowed to use the U.S. dollar – oh no, not that

SOTN Editor’s Note: There is no greater threat to the American people and this Republic than the long planned and highly organized American Bolshevik Revolution.  The primary purpose behind the deliberately open border invasion, which is allowing wave after wave of military-aged illegal aliens into the USA, is to man the kinetic phase of this bolshevik revolution.  And every single member of Congress knows about this greatest act of treason in U.S. history, but says and does absolutely nothing about it.  Which means that POTUS Imposter Joe Biden is being enabled every step of the way by the Congress, the Uniparty, Deep State, the entire U.S. Intelligence Community, State & Local Law Enforcement as well as the U.S. Armed Forces.

Long considered one of the best medical schools in the world, the University of California, Los Angeles's David Geffen School of Medicine receives as many as 14,000 applications a year. Of those, it accepted just 173 students in the 2023 admissions cycle, a record-low acceptance rate of 1.3 percent. The median matriculant took difficult science courses in college, earned a 3.8 GPA, and scored in the 88th percentile on the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT).

Without those stellar stats, some doctors at the school say, students can struggle to keep pace with the demanding curriculum.

So when it came time for the admissions committee to consider one such student in November 2021—a black applicant with grades and test scores far below the UCLA average—some members of the committee felt that this particular candidate, based on the available evidence, was not the best fit for the top-tier medical school, according to two people present for the committee's meeting.

'Is that it?' Biden asked at one point during the proceedings, as reporters from U.S. and Kenyan media asked questions to each leader in a pre-cooked format.  

'What was my question?' Biden asked a U.S. reporter who asked a long inquiry to Biden and Ruto at the same time.

'Sir, your question was Haiti,' the reporter told him at the first press conference in a month for the 81-year-old president.

Joe Rogan says he would be “IN JAIL” if podcasters called people plague rats and pushed dangerous medical products while the mainstream media urged people to be wary of potential side effects.

This is how you know you are on the right side of history:

Rogan says, “If all these people that are dropping dead, all these people with strokes, all these people with heart attacks” were because podcasters told them to take a dangerous medical product, then there would be a “very good argument for ending podcasts” and “prosecuting people.”

But that’s not happening. THEY were the ones who pushed the dangerous medical products, which is why the subject of “died suddenly” hardly makes the evening news.

How does this end? With Hamas holding firm and fighting back in Gaza, Israel faces only bad options


The Israeli military said Thursday that its troops continued operating in Gaza’s southern city of Rafah, in central Gaza and in Jabaliya.


Updated 7:10 AM CDT, May 23, 2024 


JERUSALEM (AP) — Diminished but not deterred, Hamas is still putting up a fight after seven brutal months of war with Israel, regrouping in some of the hardest-hit areas in northern Gaza and resuming rocket attacks into nearby Israeli communities.

Israel initially made tactical advances against Hamas after a devastating aerial bombardment paved the way for its ground troops. But those early gains have given way to a grinding struggle against an adaptable insurgency — and a growing feeling among many Israelis that their military faces only bad options, drawing comparisons with U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

This was the subtext of a rebellion in recent days by two members of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s three-man War Cabinet — Defense Minister Yoav Gallant and Benny Gantz, Netanyahu’s main political rival — who demanded that he come up with detailed postwar plans.

They supported Israel’s retaliation for Hamas’ Oct. 7 attack, including one of the heaviest bombing campaigns in recent history, ground operations that obliterated entire neighborhoods and border restrictions that the U.N.'s World Food Program says pushed parts of the territory into famine.

The top UN court is set to rule on a request for it to order Israel to halt its offensive in Gaza

But now the two retired generals fear a prolonged, costly re-occupation of Gaza, from which Israel withdrew soldiers and settlers in 2005. They are also opposed to a withdrawal that would leave Hamas in control or lead to the establishment of a Palestinian state.


Instead, they have put forth alternatives that many Israelis see as wildly unrealistic. Hamas, meanwhile, has proposed its own postwar plan.

Here’s a look at four ways this war might end.

Netanyahu has promised a “total victory” that would remove Hamas from power, dismantle its military capabilities and return the scores of hostages it still holds from the attack that triggered the war.

He has said victory could come within weeks if Israel launches a full-scale invasion of Rafah, which Israel portrays as the last Hamas stronghold.

Amir Av ivi, a retired Israeli general and former deputy commander of the Gaza division, says that’s only the beginning. He said Israel would need to remain in control to prevent Hamas from regrouping.

“If you don’t drain the swamp, you cannot deal with the mosquitoes. And drain the swamp means a complete change in the education system, and dealing with local leadership and not with a terror organization,” he said. “This is a generational process. It’s not going to happen in a day.”

Far-right members of Netanyahu’s governing coalition, who hold the key to his remaining in power, have called for permanent occupation, “voluntary emigration” of large numbers of Palestinians to anywhere that will have them, and rebuilding of Jewish settlements in Gaza.

Most Israelis are opposed, pointing to the immense costs of stationing thousands of troops in the territory that is home to 2.3 million Palestinians. As an occupying power, Israel would likely be held responsible for providing health, education and other services. It’s unclear to what extent international donors would step in to fund reconstruction amid ongoing hostilities.

There’s also no guarantee such an occupation would eliminate Hamas

Claire's Observations:  No  country in the Middle East will have these Palestinian refugees, and here is the reason; https://www.voanews.com/a/why-egypt-other-arab-countries-are-unwilling-to-take-refugees-from-gaza/7316575.html.  Apparently, DC isn't the only "center of power" on this planet snorting copious amounts of that devilish "hopium/changium" stuff; the concept of "voluntary emigration" is deader than is the proverbial door nail before it starts, and  Israeli leadership knows that.  

Egypt is struggling with a massive "population bomb" in areas already hit badly with poverty and massive wealth inequality throughout the country. 

 Jordan already has tons of Palestinians refugees from both the time of the Nabka to present, and cannot absorb any more without the quality of life for average Jordanians being diminished significantly. 

The monarchy in Riyadh has said, "Thanks but no thanks." 

And if such an alleged "voluntary emigration" by some Palestinians  "sticks", there will be no "right of return" for these people, or their descendants; that is absolutely NOT what sane, peaceful Palestinians want, and any more Israeli genocide against them, which appears to be a certainty now , will not change Palestinians' views on this issue one whit.

Georgia police are taking action against squatters after the Republican-controlled government passed new protections for rental landlords.

A video report from WSB-TV showed police mocking suspected squatters who were previously able to take advantage of loopholes in the law.

Before House Bill 1017, a dispute between the owner of a home and a squatter was a civil matter and could take weeks or months to be decided in court. Meanwhile the landlord would have to pay the mortgage while the squatter stayed for free.

With the relentless demand for reparations, land acknowledgements, and gender-fluid pronouns, it can be easy to understand why conservatives are burned out on the concept of identity. The left has used identity politics as a weapon to mercilessly bludgeon foes and extract material and political capital that are then used to bribe the client classes of the Democrat Party. This progressive obsession with an artificial and hollow collectivism can easily drive the right to assume that radical individualism is the only answer, but that would be a mistake.

The lack of a true, organic, and meaningful identity lies at the heart of our nation’s ills, and to fight back, we must understand the role identity plays in creating a healthy and prosperous social order.
