"Americans have the will to resist because they have weapons. If you don't have a gun, freedom of speech has no power." -- Yoshimi Ishikawa, Japanese author, in the LA Times 15 Oct 1992

The Foundation to Battle Injustice collected unique evidence of the involvement of the Ukrainian government and a shadowy U.S. arms dealer in organizing and directing criminal schemes to resell Western weapons on the black market. According to former Ukrainian Defense Ministry informants, the Foundation to Battle Injustice identified which NATO weapons are being resold by the Ukrainian government and revealed the scale and routes of the “bloody business.”

The Ukrainian Armed Forces and Defense Ministry have begun to use and dispose of hundreds of thousands of weapons and military equipment worth tens of billions of dollars. Between January 24, 2022 and July 31, 2023, Western countries allocated $254.36 billion to Ukraine, of which $98.74 for military needs.

One of Ukrainian servicemen is drugged, given a walkie-talkie loaded with a beacon. His comrades point him a direction to go. They send him to the Russian positions, telling that they are Ukrainian ones. Such operations are launched at night, when the kamikaze has a chance not to come under fire and reach the destination

The drugged servicemen approaches Russian positions and flashes his torch, signaling, as he thinks, to his Ukrainian comrades about his arrival. Immediately after he is captured by the Russians, Ukrainian artillery is shelling the are, using the signal from the beacon of the kamikaze.

This is the way the Ukrainian military attempts to discover the well-camouflaged Russian positions. The lives of Ukrainian servicemen are not a high price to pay for the Kiev regime.

At the center of the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) lies 3 major problems that disregard foreign policy and international law, an opinion piece in Common Dreams by Jeffrey Sachs revealed. 

According to Sachs, the CIA's aims and tactics, along with its covert methods and deceptive strategies, ensure a lack of accountability.

He calls Congress a "doormat" and notes that the agency's objectives are whatever the CIA and president determine at the time, irrespective of international and domestic law.

Sachs recalls Mike Pompeo's comments when he admitted, as CIA director, that the agency "lied, cheated, and stole."

According to a commentary from The Intercept by John Schwarz, former Navy Seal and founder of mercenary firm Blackwater Erik Prince has called on the United States to "put the imperial hat back on" and control massive parts of the globe again.

Erik Prince is a former US Navy SEAL who was behind the revival of the private security industry. 

He also calls himself "Kingfish".

Notoriously known for Blackwater and his involvement in the Iraq War, he established another private military company called Reflex Responses – or R2 – after he sold Blackwater to investors as an escape from controversy. The UAE secretly hired both companies, Blackwater and R2, to go to Yemen. 

Blackwater, which has massacred scores of Iraqis and is despised in Iraq more than the US soldiers themselves, has taken pride in employing Colombians and other Latin American military personnel, from soldiers to commanders.

It is no surprise the city of Mariupol became the destination of choice for Big Pharma's tests on psychiatric ward patients as such testing is forbidden in Western countries, experts told Sputnik.

Major Western pharmaceutical companies tested rheumatological drugs on patients, including infants, in a psychiatric ward of a hospital in the city of Mariupol alongside Ukrainian officials for several years, according to documents obtained by Sputnik.

The tests were carried out when Mariupol was under Kiev’s jurisdiction - until May 2022, when Russia seized control of the city.

A Ukrainian proposal to remove the remains of Tsarist-era Russian Prime Minister Pyotr Stolypin from its burial place in the heart of Kiev and exchange it with Moscow for prisoners of war is sacrilegious, Russian State Duma Chairman Vyacheslav Volodin has said.

In an emotional post on social media on Tuesday, the senior Russian lawmaker condemned the idea, which was floated in a TV interview last week by the recently appointed director of the Kiev-Pechersk Lavra, a state-owned monastery that is considered one of the holiest Orthodox Christian sites in Ukraine.

Last year Maksym Ostapenko became the chief custodian of the Lavra, which was split into a secular museum and a religious section, after the government in Kiev pressured the traditional Ukrainian Orthodox Church to vacate the premises.

On February 1, a Dutch law allowing the euthanasia of terminally ill children went into effect. The law legalizes the killing of children ages one through 12 who are deemed to be “suffering hopelessly and unbearably.”

Previously, the country allowed euthanasia of children older than 12, along with infants under age one who could be killed if their parents and doctors agreed and they faced an illness labeled as terminal or faced serious suffering. In 2023, lawmakers passed a controversial expansion of the eligibility guidelines to include children of all ages.

The first U.K. patients have been injected with an experimental mRNA cancer “therapy” at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust as part of a Moderna clinical safety trial, raising concerns that the mRNA could cause bodily harm similar to that of the mRNA COVID jabs.

The mRNA-4359 “therapeutic,” described by the Telegraph as a “vaccine,” is said to aim to “stimulat[e] effector T-cells that target and kill suppressive immune and tumor cells that express target antigens,” according to Moderna. 

The mRNA jab works by “presenting common markers of tumours to the patient’s immune system” to train the immune system to “recognise and fight cancer cells expressing these markers,” Imperial College London explained.

Dr. Michael Yeadon, former vice president and chief scientist of Pfizer’s allergy and respiratory division, told LifeSiteNews that despite the “possibility” that the mRNA jab “might have conceptual merit,” it presents “insurmountable safety problems.”

The leaders of Germany and Denmark joined in a ground-breaking ceremony for a new ammunition factory on Monday, underlining Europe’s efforts to ramp up its weapons production as Russia’s war in Ukraine grinds on.

The plant being built by defense company Rheinmetall at its existing site in Unterluess in northern Germany is expected eventually to produce around 200,000 artillery shells per year along with explosives and possibly other components, including warheads. Rheinmetall is shouldering the cost of about 300 million euros ($324 million).

Rheinmetall said that production at the site will primarily meet the needs of Germany’s military, the Bundeswehr. The company said the priority is to start production as soon as possible and it expects construction to take about a year.

It is likely the liberal media, as well as Democrat politicians, wanted to use this incident to push gun control. A shooter attacking a well-known, Christian church? The Twitter posts would write themselves.

But the fact she legally obtained the gun hurts the gun control narrative. Even with strict measures in place, she was able to get a gun. The fact she might have been a transgender further hurts the left’s narrative.

In recent years, trans-identifying people have been responsible for shootings, especially targeting Christian groups. The narrative emerging from this shooting suggests mental health played a huge role in the woman’s decision to target Lakewood.

Yet Democrats routinely ignore mental health as a part of the gun violence problem. Calls by Republicans to increase focus on mental health—as well as defending sensitive locations—have been rejected by liberals.

Not that long ago, President Biden hosted a disastrous press conference. The Democrat was trying to dispel concerns over his mental health. Instead, the event was, as the New York Times put it, a “political disaster.”

Calls have been renewed to test Joe Biden’s cognitive health. Even liberals are starting to fear Biden is not fit for leadership.

Well, as it happens, the president is up for his yearly physical. This is a prime moment for the White House to quell any concerns that Biden is suffering from mental decline. But, in what will come as a shock to many, the physical will leave out this.

From The Post Millennial:
During Monday’s White House press conference, press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said that Biden will not be taking a cognitive test as part of his upcoming physical exam, coming as questions are raised on Biden’s mental fitness.

A new report is coming out about how Biden is reacting to a certain situation. Things are getting so bad, that staffers can’t even bring this issue up for discussion. If the report is proven to be true, Biden’s problems are much worse than we thought.

From Daily Wire:
A new lengthy report into President Joe Biden’s failure to secure the U.S. southern border revealed that the crisis that Biden created has caused internal strife inside the White House which has further exacerbated the issue.

The report from Axios painted Biden as prone to chaotic emotional outbursts over the issue, saying that he has exploded at staffers and cabinet secretaries and that he has become increasingly unpleasant to be around when the issue comes up. The report said that Biden’s angry outbursts have contributed to inaction and indecisiveness on how to deal with the issue.

Webmaster addition: Sudden outbursts of anger are a symptom of Dementia.

You don’t have to do much to convince most Americans that the economy is doing poorly. For over three years, American families have been hit with painful inflation. Yet, the media won’t call it a recession, because the White House convinced them to redefine the term.

Yet, inflation continues to raise the prices of everything. And businesses have the pain of consumers closing their purse strings.

Despite this, the Biden administration keeps claiming the economy is good. Why? Because of jobs reports that make it seem like companies keep adding workers. But there is a dirty secret Biden hasn’t admitted—that will change your view on these reports.

From Breitbart:
President Joe Biden’s jobs record is built on the record hiring of 2.9 million job-seeking migrants — and a persistent 183,000 deficit in the number of Americans with jobs compared to 2019, according to a report by the Center for Immigration Studies.

Biden’s “Immigrant employment … has exploded,” said a statement by Steven Camarota, who wrote the report, titled “All Employment Growth Has Gone to Immigrants, Compared to 2019.”

According to a new report, 2.9 million jobs have gone to migrants. The number of Americans working has not returned to 2019, pre-COVID numbers. And that is largely thanks to Biden’s border crisis.

The real objective of the Gaza military campaign would be to provoke a second Nakba in which 1.5 million Palestinians would be forced to leave a Gaza turned into a mass of rubble and human remains that would make it impossible to return the displaced Gazan population and confine Palestinians in an open-air concentration camp of 1,7 Km2 located in Rafah, situation described by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Volker Türk, as “apocalyptic”, while warning “of the growing risk of genocide”.

In this context, we are witnessing the unfortunate death by the Tzahal of three of the Jewish hostages by confusing them with members of Hamas. As a result, the mobilizations of the relatives of the people kidnapped by Hamas at the residence of Netanyahu who are made “personally responsible for their return home alive” have increased. Thus, the disaffection of Israeli society towards Netanyahu due to his nefarious management of the crisis with Hamas, the null interest to rescue alive the Jewish hostages and the stubbornness of Netanyahu to undertake the capture of Rafah with the evident risk of Massacre of about 1.5 million Gazans who live there crowded, could provoke a blow of hand of the ex-member of the Israeli Emergency Government, Benny Gantz, who leads the Blue and White party.

Such a coup would have the blessings of the Biden Administration and AIPAC and after ending the invasion of Gaza and the exchange of hostages in the hands of Hamas, would lead to the early calling of new elections with the avowed goal of forming a Government of National Unity with Yair Lapid. The primary task of such a Government would be to reissue the Oslo Accords, which would enable the peaceful coexistence of two peoples in two States, and while Netanyahu, a nefarious politician who tried to strike an autocratic coup to later establish a presidential regime, could face a criminal trial in which he will be accused of negligence and crimes against human rights which could mean a criminal conviction and his definitive departure from the Israeli political scene

Claire's Observations:  Any animal is at its most dangerous when it is wounded; and right now, Netanyahu is a geopolitically wounded animal.  Underestimating that, either by IDF forces planning to take control of the government, or the US government, would be an horrific mistake.

A media report suggesting that Russian President Vladimir Putin reached out to the US with an offer to freeze the Ukraine conflict is false, Kremlin press secretary Dmitry Peskov has said.

On Tuesday, Reuters news agency claimed that Putin had contacted Washington through intermediaries to propose “a ceasefire in Ukraine to freeze the war.” However, according to three informed Russian sources who spoke to the agency, the US rejected the idea.

When asked by journalists on Wednesday about the report, Peskov responded: “No, this is not true.”

In his interview with American journalist Tucker Carlson last week, Putin said Russia maintains contacts with the US “through various agencies.”

A number of high-speed trains travelling between Frankfurt and Stuttgart were canceled on Monday after key infrastructure was vandalized by metal thieves.

According to Deutsche Bahn, the country’s rail operator, the heist of metal parts was discovered on Monday morning on the part of the track between Mannheim Central Station and the nearby town of Lampertheim.

The disruption reportedly affected Intercity Express (ICE) trains running on the Berlin-Frankfurt-Stuttgart route with all service between Frankfurt and Stuttgart cancelled. Some trains moving from the western state of North Rhine-Westphalia to Munich in the south via Frankfurt Airport and Stuttgart were canceled as well. The operator had to reroute other ICE trains travelling between Frankfurt and Mannheim.

A glaring example is the misuse of the city’s law, allowing a single property owner to exploit the system by obtaining 114 STR licenses in Ocean Beach. This exploitation not only deprives the community of crucial housing but also highlights a pressing issue: a few individuals enriching themselves at the expense of everyone else.

Last year, John Durham, a special prosecutor for the Department of Justice (DOJ), concluded that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) should never have opened its investigation of alleged collusion by then-presidential candidate Donald J. Trump and Russia in late July of 2016.

Now, multiple credible sources tell Public and Racket that the United States Intelligence Community (IC), including the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), illegally mobilized foreign intelligence agencies to target Trump advisors long before the summer of 2016.

The new information fills many gaps in our understanding of the Russia collusion hoax and is supported by testimony already in the public record.

Until now, the official story has been that the FBI’s investigation began after Australian intelligence officials told US officials that a Trump aide had boasted to an Australian diplomat that Russia had damning material about Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

In truth, the US IC asked the “Five Eyes” intelligence alliance to surveil Trump’s associates and share the intelligence they acquired with US agencies, say sources close to a House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HSPCI) investigation. The Five Eyes nations are the US, UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

The leader of Hezbollah, Hassan Nasrallah, said in a Tuesday speech that Israel is "unable to meet its goals" and that Lebanon is in a "position of strength" after 130 days of cross-border clashes between Hezbollah and Israel.

Fighting between Hezbollah and Israel started in the wake of Hamas's 7 October attack on the Gaza envelope and has steadily widened, with international powers warning of further escalation if clashes did not stop.

Despite recent assassinations of Hezbollah leaders in south Lebanon last week, Nasrallah said on Tuesday that fighting in southern Lebanon is "within limits and controls."

Fighting has killed at least 231 people in Lebanon, most of them Hezbollah fighters, according to an AFP tally. According to Israel, nine soldiers and six civilians have been killed – although Hezbollah counter-claims that the number of Israeli soldiers killed is much higher.

Nasrallah stressed that international efforts to try to de-escalate cross-border clashes between Israel and Hezbollah will not stop fighting between the two.

Claire's Observations:  I am waiting.... for someone approximating "an adult in the room," in Israel; Iran; and Lebanon, to have the courage to think, and say, that this carnage has gone on far too long. It is time for both a cease-fire, and the establishment of a viable, legitimate Palestinian state.

We come to U.S. media — mainstream media, corporate media, legacy media. However you wish to name them, they have gambled and lost, too. Their coverage of the Gaza crisis has been so egregiously and incautiously unbalanced in Israel’s behalf that we might count their derelictions as unprecedented. When the surveys are conducted and the returns are in, their unscrupulous distortions, their countless omissions, and—the worst offense, in my view—their dehumanization of the Palestinians of Gaza will have further damaged their already collapsing credibility.

We come, finally, to The New York Times. No medium in America has had further to fall in consequence of its reporting on Israel and Gaza since last October. And the once-but-no-longer newspaper of record, fairly suffocating amid its well-known hubris, falls as we speak. It has erupted, by numerous accounts including implicitly its own, in an internal uproar over reportage from Israel and Gaza so shabby—so transparently negligent—that it, like Israel, may never fully restore its reputation.

Before Bill Clinton’s presidency (1993-2000) came Reagan’s Central America wars and his game of nuclear chicken with the Soviets, followed by G.H.W. Bush’s brutal Gulf War I. After Clinton left office, Cheney and Bush Jr. presided over 9/11 and the wars it was designed to trigger.

So were the Clinton years a golden age of relative peace and prosperity? That’s how some remember them. But Richard Cook, author of Our Country Then and Now, takes a different view. In his new review of Jeremy Kuzmarov’s Warmonger, Cook endorses Kuzmarov’s thesis that Clinton was not just a crooked Deep State asset, but the central figure in the USA’s turn from its criminally unnecessary Cold War (1948-1989) to its current and even more criminal war for perpetual unipolar global domination.

NEW DELHI (AP) — Indian police on Tuesday used tear gas and detained some farmers who clashed with them and tried to break barricades blocking their way to New Delhi to demand guaranteed crop prices in a repeat of 2021 protests, when they camped on the capital’s outskirts for more than a year.

Police dropped tear gas canisters on the protesting farmers from a drone at one of the border points in northern Haryana state that leads to New Delhi, where tens of thousands of farmers are headed on tractors and trucks.

Police have sealed multiple entry points into the capital with barriers of giant metal containers, barbed wire, spikes and cement blocks. The government has banned large gatherings in the capital and suspended internet service in some districts of neighboring Haryana state to prevent communication among the protesters.

The demonstration comes more than two years after Prime Minister Narendra Modi withdrew controversial agriculture laws that had triggered the earlier protests, in which tens of thousands of farmers camped outside the capital through a harsh winter and a devastating COVID-19 surge.

Claire's Observations:  Well, that 's certainly going to improve morale in the  Indian Farming Community!!  And Prime Minister Modi, a word, please:  no farmers = no food.

Newly uncovered documents show that while it was still under Ukrainian control – Russia is now in charge – the city of Mariupol, population 540,000, served as a testbed for various large-scale medical experiments on local civilians.

A psychiatric ward in the city where many of these experiments took place is now undergoing a rapid reconstruction after being incorporated into Russia following a referendum held in late 2022, reports explain.

A major goal of Russia’s special military operation in Ukraine, by the way, was to identify and eliminate such facilities from existence so the Ukrainian deep state is no longer able to use innocent people as human guinea pigs.

In the last Ukraine situation report I discussed the choice of General Oleksandr Syrski as the new Commander-in-Chief of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. He is likely to support the more aggressive choices the Ukrainian president Zelenski will make.

For mostly public relation reasons Zelenski demands constant attacks on Russian forces and no retreat of Ukrainian forces until absolutely necessary. Syrski is willing to deliver on that even as history says that he is unlikely to be successful:

Syrski, who was born as a Russian, had lost the cauldron battles of Debaltsevo (2015), Soledar (2023) and Bakhmut (2023). Currently Avdeevka is in a cauldron and likely to fall.

Rumors say that Syrski has already ordered reserves to reinforce the troops in Avdeevka.

The latest news says that some reinforcements have indeed arrived:

Some units of the 110th Separate Mechanized Brigade in Avdiivka have been replaced by other units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Source: Ivan Sekach, Chief of Public Relations of the 110th Separate Mechanised Brigade named after Marko Bezruchko, in an interview with Radio Liberty on 13 February

Quote: "We lack sufficient capabilities to maintain control of the city, but reinforcements are arriving, and we rely on friendly units. For the first time in almost two years of the 110th Separate Mechanised Brigade's operation, some of our units have been fully withdrawn from combat for rest and rotation. Indeed, reinforcements have come. I won't specify [which] unit, but it provides substantial support. We feel a bit more at ease since its arrival."
