“The great rule of conduct for us, in regard to foreign nations, is in extending our commercial relations, to have with them as little political connection as possible.  … it is our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world.” -- George Washington Farewell Address

Israel is starving Gaza.

Children “are going without food for days, as aid convoys are increasingly denied permits to enter,” reported the BBC on 10 February.

The United Nations estimates that nearly one in every 10 Palestinian children in Gaza under 5 years old is now acutely malnourished.

Stéphane Dujarric, spokesperson for the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, told reporters on 2 February that the agency’s partners have indicated a “sharp rise in acute malnutrition” across the population in Gaza, “with a 12-fold increase compared to the rate recorded before the hostilities.”

There are only 70-100 trucks entering Gaza per day “in the best case scenario,” with only “two of those trucks going to the northern governorates,” according to estimates by the Geneva-based Euro-Med Human Rights Monitor.

Before Israel’s attacks began in October, approximately 500 trucks entered Gaza each day.

Day 130 of the ongoing genocide: Total killed 28340 (+some 7,000 under the rubble to be added) and injured 67984. 72% are women and children. This also does not count the thousands dead from lack of food, clean water, medicine and from infectious diseases and cold exposure. Desperate situation for over 2 million people in Gaza strip. Meanwhile as you expect, the news is mixed. Some groups speaking out and acting to end the genocide while others work to accelerate it. For example while UNRWA (https://www.unrwa.org/) tries to do its mandate of humanitarian aid, Israeli authorities with support of the complicit puppet western governments are shutting its operations and hobbling it. And yes the Palestinian authority is permeated with corruption like the Israeli authorities. Both are like this by design with no democracy or rule of independent judiciary that serves everyone. In the case of Tel Aviv, the judiciary serves Zionist elites and in the case of Ramallah it serves the Fatah elites. In both cases common people suffer and the genocide in the Gaza strip is left to go on. And we continue to see heartbreaking stories like the two sisters who were so happy one moment and the next were hugging each other as shattered bodies hanging on a wall in their house.

Recently, many users have reported receiving intrusive pop-up notifications on their computers and mobile devices, prompting them to “allow” notifications or enable push notifications from a website called Nogroxtryous.com.

This website appears harmless at first glance, typically displaying a video player and a message asking the user to allow notifications to watch the video. However, allowing notifications from this site will bombard the user with a relentless stream of adult content, fake antivirus alerts, gambling ads, and other malicious pop-ups – even when the browser is closed.

Nogroxtryous.com is believed to be linked to various adware campaigns and scam networks aiming to expose users to unwanted content and steal their personal information. This article will provide an in-depth look at how the Nogroxtryous.com scam works, how to remove it from infected devices, and how to avoid falling victim in the first place.

A New York appeals court upheld a prior ruling that struck down a New York City law giving local voting rights to nearly a million foreign nationals.

As Breitbart News chronicled, Democrats on the 51-member New York City Council approved a plan in January 2022 that gave more than 800,000 foreign nationals with green cards, visas, and work permits the opportunity to vote in citywide elections so long as they have resided in the city for at least 30 consecutive days.

Black New Yorkers, along with naturalized American citizens, the New York State Republican Party, the Republican National Committee (RNC), and Democrat officials like Councilman Robert Holden subsequently sued Mayor Eric Adams (D) and the city’s Board of Elections.

In June 2022, the New York Supreme Court ruled that giving local voting rights to foreign nationals violated the state’s constitution, which explicitly reserves voting for American “citizens.”

On Wednesday, the New York Appellate Division upheld that decision:

Over recent months, the former Pink Floyd member has been in the news for his comments on the conflict in Palestine and accusations of anti-Semitism and rightly repeatedly denied all accusations of anti-Semitism and explained that his disdain is towards Israel, not Judaism. He also accused Israel of “abusing the term anti-Semitism to intimidate people like me into silence”.

“My mother told me, when faced with difficult problems, the first thing to do is to read—read, read, read. Then, the next part is easy: do the right thing,” he told the outlet, referring to his own family background that saw his father killed in the Second World War.

“Anybody who knows Bono should go and pick him up by his ankles and shake him… until he stops being an enormous shit.” 

“We have to start saying to these people, your opinion is so disgusting and so degrading… sticking up for the Zionist entity,” he added. “What he did a couple of weeks ago in the Sphere in Las Vegas, singing about the Stars of David, was one of the most disgusting things I’ve ever seen in my life.”

A potential war tactic has just been launched by Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) when it fired two "Fateh class" ballistic missiles from launchers that were disguised as regular shipping containers hosted aboard its sea base-like vessel. According to experts, this new "strategy" has not been seen to date but it greatly expands the reach with which those weapons could be used to strike potential targets by surprise because shipping containers can be embarked on any vessel that has the space to accommodate them.

Local and IRCG-linked news outlet Tasnim reported that the ballistic missiles that were recently launched were from Shahid Mahdavi. The Iranian Navy took delivery of the ship in March 2023 after it was converted from a state-owned and operated container ship known as the Sarvin. Video footage showing the firing of the missile seemed to be taken from cameras around the ship and a drone that captured the launch from above. It also showed the supposed resulting impact on a target of one of the missiles, causing a large explosion. At least one of the missiles went on to successfully hit its target in the central desert of Iran.

Trust the Evidence has started a list of people and institutions who pushed the harmful and destructive idea that you could “suppress” or “eradicate” SARS-CoV-2 using social measures, for example, “lockdowns.”

“Those listed below showed crass ignorance of respiratory viral epidemiology, and they are likely to approach other topics with the same facile attitude in the future,” Dr. Tom Jefferson and Professor Carl Heneghan said.

“Some of them have since apologised, but most of them are carrying on, pretending nothing happened.”

Google’s highly-touted AI chatbot Gemini is getting destroyed by social media users, including Elon Musk, after its image generator spat out a series of “diverse” yet inaccurate pictures of America’s Founding Fathers, popes, and more.

The New York Post reported the bizarre results came after simple prompts by users, including from the paper itself.

As NBC News notes, Google announced its “next-generation” AI model, Gemini 1.5, last week, claiming was its most capable yet. Unless they were talking about peak wokeness, this was a clear misjudgment.

In addition to the Founding Fathers, the images include female and black popes, black Vikings, Nazis of different races, and Asian female hockey players.

Again we are reminded that wealth comes before health, this time due to a pesticide called Chlormequat chloride, which is approved and being used in food crops in the UK, EU, and Canada and its use is now on the rise in the U.S. This is despite the findings in animal studies that the chemical lowers fertility and testosterone, disrupts the reproductive process and can even harm the developing fetus!

Former Air Force Major Thomas Haviland surveyed embalmers in 2022 about unusual clots being found in the bodies of vaccinated deceased.  Haviland did a second survey for 2023.

While reviewing and commenting on the latest survey results, A Midwestern Doctor gives possible mechanisms for how these clots are forming and discusses why corporate media and “the science” remain silent.

“Given how many people are seeing these clots and how much concern still exists about them, it is remarkable that our entire scientific apparatus has blacklisted any research being conducted on it,” A Midwestern Doctor writes.

And much like corporate media, “the scientific press … will never cover stories which threaten the pharmaceutical sponsors who fund the medical journals.”

Information about children referred to the UK’s Prevent counter-terrorism programme could be held on databases for decades and potentially for the rest of their lives, digital rights campaigners have warned.

In a report published on Thursday, Open Rights Group warned that thousands of children referred to Prevent over the past decade are at risk of being “marked for life” even in the vast majority of cases in which no action or intervention is deemed necessary.

Sophia Akram, programme manager at ORG, told Middle East Eye: “The prospect that people’s data could be held from when they were a child for the duration of their lifetime is disproportionate considering no offence would have been committed and the behaviour in question is often so negligible that it might not even warrant an intervention.

“The implication is that we could hold a generation of children in permanent suspicion with no means of redress. Worse than criminalisation, all of these children could be impacted through potentially various facets of their lives because of one ill-thought through Prevent referral."

The report highlighted concerns about opaque data management processes in which details about Prevent referrals were being recorded not only in a national Prevent database but also in other police databases and others managed by local authorities and public bodies.

Claire's Observations:  These intel reports on children are SO "Code Napoleon" (Suspect is guilty until proven  innocent), that I really have to wonder why UK law enforcement has "gone there".   I smell a lot of panic in the UK on this, but  panic will not help the situation, and leave a lot of very innocent kids marked for the rest of their lives with this "shadow" of unsubstantiated potential violence, hanging over their heads.

The moment part of a decommissioned power station building was demolished has been captured on camera.

A pre-planned demolition of Cottam power station's boiler house took place earlier, with people on social media saying they could feel and hear the demolition over a wide area.

Dee Dickens, who filmed it from near Rampton in Nottinghamshire, said: "As I have lived in Treswell all my life, it's been a large part of my life. My mam has seen it built and now demolished."

The EDF-owned coal-fired power station had been operating for more than 50 years before it was decommissioned in 2019.
