Thought for the day

"All vets are mentally ill in some way and government should prevent them from owning firearms." -- Diane Feinstein 

Eleven Moroccan children were rescued by Spanish authorities near the exclave of Ceuta this week after they attempted to cross the Strait of Gibraltar alone in a small boat.

The 11 children, said to be aged between six and 11 years old, were first seen by a lifeguard on a beach in Ceuta and were intercepted just over half a mile off the North African coast as their small boat was headed toward the Spanish mainland.

The Western globalists’ plans to crater their economies so they can finally exert full authoritarian control over their populations has been proceeding at a steady pace, but the African nation of Zimbabwe may have just provided some countries and even some U.S. states with an exit ramp.

According to reports, Zimbabwe began issuing one-ounce gold coins last month as a means of combatting rampant currency deflation, and it was so successful that the country is planning to begin issuing smaller denominations this fall.

Peacekeepers and other personnel employed by the United Nations (U.N.) in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) since 2018 have allegedly impregnated at least 60 different local girls and women during their times of service in the troubled country, with the youngest accuser alleging she was just ten years old when she was impregnated by a U.N.

In April, the UK clinched a deal with Rwanda that stipulates illegal migrants arriving in Britain via the English Channel will be sent to the East African nation, where their asylum claims will be processed.

An unnamed Foreign Office official has accused Rwanda’s government of resorting to “arbitrary detention, torture and even killings” as “accepted methods of enforcing control,” The Guardian reports referring to documents revealed during a High Court hearing on London’s plans to deport some asylum seekers to Rwanda.

An investigation into the actions of United Nations Peacekeepers in the Democratic Republic of the Congo shines a light on years of rampant misconduct that has left thousands of broken lives. Victims of Peacekeepers say they were impregnated as children, left without child support, trafficked and raped.

For years, France has been a holiday destination for Hajar, a 32-year-old Moroccan who works for an international consulting firm.

In April she submitted an application for a Schengen visa to TLS Contact in Casablanca, a subcontractor of the French consulate in Morocco, as she normally did in preparation for her trip to France.

To her surprise, her visa request was rejected, which had never happened before.

"Even though my file was complete, my application was refused," Hajar told Middle East Eye.

The US launched airstrikes in Somalia on Tuesday against al-Shabaab, US Africa Command (AFRICOM) said on Wednesday.

AFRICOM said in a press release that three airstrikes were launched in Beledweyne, Somalia, in support of the US-backed Somali government that’s based in Mogadishu. AFRICOM claimed that its “initial assessment” found four al-Shabaab fighters were killed and that no civilians were harmed.

The US ambassador to the UN, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, warned African countries last week not to purchase anything from Russia besides grain and fertilizer, or else they could face sanctions.

Thomas-Greenfield said during a visit to Uganda that countries could buy “Russian agricultural products, including fertilizer and wheat” but added that “if a country decides to engage with Russia, where there are sanctions, then they are breaking those sanctions.”

France began its military operations in the Sahel in 2013 to crush a rebellion in the North of Mali, a former French colony. The rebel and terrorist groups then reorganized to attack the center of the country which initiated a full blown rebellion. After nearly a decade, the rebels were still not contained and the numbers of terrorist attacks in the country rose steadily and the violence spread to neighboring countries.

The rising tensions eventually led to the complete deterioration of the relations between the two countries.
