Voting With Your Feet

Authored by Walter Block via InternationalMan.com,

Voting with your feet is a crucially important indicator of what is really going on, regarding the political economy. No, this does not refer to taking off your shoes and socks, entering the polling booth, pressing a button with your big toe instead of your thumb or index finger.

Rather, it denotes migration patterns as the best way to determine human welfare.

The island government 90 miles off the Florida shore can brag all it wants about its health care and educational systems that have “made Cuba great.” But massive numbers of people have rejected that sorry system as demonstrated by their migration away from it, often at great bodily risk, to enter our country. Yes, there might have been a Bernie fan or two who moved in the opposite direction (Senator Sanders spent his honeymoon not in Russia, but in the USSR), but these are the exceptions that prove the rule.

Why Masks Are Still Mandatory

Authored by Alex Hamilton via AmericanThinker.com,

Joe Biden is in a pickle.

He wants to continue to convince Americans they should get the experimental biological agent (AKA "the vaccine"), but, as Tucker Carlson pointed out last week, the administration and the CDC have offered no explanation as to why you need to continue to wear a mask after you have taken "the vaccine."

Why would they want us to doubt the efficacy of the vaccine? Why would any sane person who is not in a high-risk group contemplate becoming a lab experiment subject if you are not allowed (yes, our rights are now derived from government and will be doled out based on compliance) to burn your mask and return to a pre-pandemic way of life?

That's just bad salesmanship...until you think about the alternative.

Think about what would happen if they allowed (there's that word again) people not to wear masks after being vaccinated.

China Pollutes More Than US And All Developed Countries Combined: Report

China's 2019 greenhouse gas emissions exceeded those of the United States and the rest of the developed world combined, according to CNBC, citing a Thursday report by the Rhodium Group - a New York-based advisory group founded in 2003 by China expert Daniel H. Rosen.

According to the study co-authored by a former Obama admin climate policy official, energy modelers and emissions experts (just go with it), China is now responsible for 27% of total global emissions - more than the combined total produced by the United States (11%), India (6.6%) and the 27 EU member nations together (6.4%).

Atlas Is Shrugging: Forget 'The Great Reset', Here Comes 'The Great Reject'

Never mind The Great Reset. Here comes The Great Reject.
It occurred to me that I never did finish the final instalment of last summer’s Jackpot Chronicles, wherein I posited four possible post-Covid scenarios.

For a quick refresher, The Jackpot is concept I cribbed from William Gibson. It’s a term he uses across a few of his near-future cyberpunk novels that describes a series of rolling global catastrophes that set in sometime around 2016 (his stories span multiverses, and timelines, but the common theme is that somewhere around 2016, some kind of irrevocable glitch in the matrix occurred that put a permanent end to normalcy as it has been understood up until that point).

CNN Host Says People Who Don't Take The Vaccine Should Be Socially Ostracized By Friends & Family

Authored by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit News,

CNN’s Michael Smerconish says that people who don’t take the vaccine should be socially ostracized and shunned by their friends and family.

During a segment on his show, Smerconish discussed a suggestion made by prosecutor Michael Stern in a USA Today opinion piece about vaccination uptake.

“We’ve gotta shun folks, we’ve gotta shun people into getting vaccinated,” said Smerconish, agreeing that businesses should make getting the vaccine mandatory as a condition of employment.

However, he also asserted that family members and friends should socially ostracize those who choose not to take the vaccine.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Seriously, Shmerc?!?

Would someone please sit down with this guy, and gently remind him that "shunning" went out with the dribble glass and the whoopie cushion?

And, oh, BTW; what would a forensic audit of his accounts show he has invested in alleged "vaccine making companies"?!?

My 91 year old mom lives in an assisted living community, and I knew it was a matter of time before management there invoked a "your papers, please!!" about Mike and I having been vaccinated. So we got the J&J jab before we realized that it was giving some people massive blood clots. We were just doggone lucky that we didn't have that response.

The problem, for us, is that the "emergency authorization" under which these medications were licenced were absolutely NOT as "vaccines" but as "experimental MRNA therapy." Forgive me, but in plain English, what does that even mean?!?
It appears that not only will this medication not insure you won't get Covid, or transmit it, but that it might ameliorate the symptoms.

People can have legitimate concerns, for which these Big Pharma companies need to be accountable. Let's place the responsibility where it really needs to fall, and not on those people who have these concerns, for some very intense, and real reasons.

Slap On The Wrist: Honeywell Fined For Sharing F-35, Other Secrets To China

Via South Front,

On May 5th, the US State Department announced that it had reached a $13 million settlement with defense contractor Honeywell.

The settlement is over allegations it exported technical drawings of parts for the F-35 fighters and other weapons platforms to China, Taiwan, Canada and Ireland, according to the Bureau of Political-Military Affairs’ charging document.

“Honeywell voluntarily disclosed to the Department the alleged violations that are resolved under this settlement. Honeywell also acknowledged the serious nature of the alleged violations, cooperated with the Department’s review, and instituted a number of compliance program improvements during the course of the Department’s review. For these reasons, the Department has determined that it is not appropriate to administratively debar Honeywell at this time.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but given the magnitude of this breach, why is no one going to jail over this?!?

Is it because of the "contributions" , overt and covert, that Honywell has made, over the years, to both sides of the aisle?!?

This is absolutely mind-blowing, that no one of their executive staff, has been made to take responsibility for this!!

NATO's Southeastern Spearhead: Turkey's Military Aggression In Iraq, Syria, Yemen, & Caucasus Signals Proxy Conflict With Iran

Authored by Rick Rozoff via Anti-Bellum,

The past week has witnessed reports of increased Turkish military activity in Iraq and Syria as well as its intruding itself deeper into the war in Yemen. In all three cases Ankara has pitted itself against forces that are or can be seen to be pro-Iranian: Shiite parties in northern Iraq, the government of Syria and the Houthi-led government in Yemen.

Direct tensions between Turkey and Iran have been increasing since last year over the above three nations as well as the Turkish-directed attack on Nagorno-Karabakh by Azerbaijan (Turkey and Azerbaijan identify themselves as “one nation, two states’) and its aftermath.

Social Unrest Fears Mount As World Food Prices Soar In April

Global inflation is headed into overdrive as the leading food price indicator that is the United Nations' Food and Agriculture Organization's food price index increased for an 11th consecutive month in April, hitting levels not seen since May 2014, with sugar prices leading the rise in the main index.

The Rome-based FAO released data Thursday showing the food price index, which measures monthly changes for a basket of cereals, oilseeds, dairy products, meat, and sugar, surged 2 points from 118.9 points in March to 120.9 in April.

White House Says "We Support" Ukraine's Ambitions To Join NATO

While traveling aboard Air Force One for President Joe Biden's visit to Louisiana on Thursday, White House deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre bluntly stated that "we support" Ukraine's ambition to join NATO.

When she was asked by a press pool reporter if the White House "supports Ukraine joining NATO" - the deputy press secretary responded with "We supported it... yeah" - but then quickly sought to clarify that certain "commitments" have to be met. She explained, "The Biden administration remains committed to ensuring that NATO's door remains open to aspirants when they are ready and able to meet the commitments."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

War... with Russia?!?

IS this administration so collectively and completely insane as to consider this a viable possibility?!?

Folks, the reality here is, we don't have the troop strength; we don't have the weaponry; we don't have the manufacturing, and we flat-out, with this tax-and-spend frenzy on the part of the Leftocrats, don't have the money.

Children Are Far More Likely To Die From Diarrhea Than COVID-19

By the early 20th century, children were starting to be viewed as more than just cheap, easily exploitable workers. Instead, western nations began to prioritize children’s well-being.

It’s been that way for generations.

Then along came COVID-1984… and all the dictatorial public health measures that have accompanied it.

Entire economies were locked down, borders closed, business shuttered, and basic human interactions forbidden.

These restrictions have been especially damaging for children.

Even to this day, more than a YEAR later, schools are still closed in many parts of the world.

Millions of children simply stopped learning at the age when their minds develop more rapidly than at any other time in life.

Sheepish bureaucrats hid behind Zoom classes as an adequate substitute for real learning and human interaction, though hardly a thought was given to the cost versus benefit.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Informed decisions" are the rarity rather the rule, in the wake of alleged "Covid-Wokeness".

Maricopa County Defies Subpoena, Won't Release Hardware For Election Audit Over 'Security Risk'

Update (1400ET): Something must be really worrying Democrats. There appears to be a full court press effort to delay and defer any and every effort to audit Maricopa County's election results. The Biden justice department added to pressure from Arizona's chief elections officer (a Democrat) and the Arizona Democratic Party, and now, Daniel Payne at JustTheNews.com reports that officials in Arizona's Maricopa County are withholding materials subpoenaed by the state legislature as part of its audit of the county's 2020 election, claiming that surrendering them would constitute a security risk for both law enforcement and federal agencies.

Gundlach Warns America's "Unfunded Liabilities" Are $163 Trillion, More Than 5x National Debt

The other day, DoubleLine released a recording of another talk given by Gundlach where he elaborated on the inflation theme, while also discussing other issues like the outlook for the US dollar in the face of President Biden's tax-and-spend agenda.

During the course of an hour-plus conversation, much of it accompanied by a slide deck with some of Gundlach's favorite charts, Gundlach tackled a few key topics that he feels could threaten the Fed's ability to backstop financial markets.

He started by slamming Biden's plan to hike capital gains taxes on taxpayers with more than $1 million in earnings, arguing that fears of higher capital gains taxes is already weighing in the market.

Gundlach argued that high-beta stocks and other speculative investments like bitcoin have the most to lose due to a hike in capital gains. After all, who is going to want to take a risk on a long shot if they need to give half of their winnings to the government?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a move on behalf of the Biden government which cannot, possibly, end well.

Vaccinated people now being tested at 28 PCR cycles, which almost guarantees a “negative” covid result

New evidence has emerged to suggest that people who get injected for the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) are being administered a different PCR test than people who are not injected, making it appear as though the “vaccine” was “effective.”

Remember when we warned you that PCR tests here in the United States were intentionally “tuned” too high, producing many false positives? Well, they are now being “tuned” too low for the vaccinated in order to produce almost exclusively “negative” test results.

In other words, if you receive an injection and are later tested with one of these lower cycle count PCR tests, you will more than likely test “negative.” If you have not been injected, then your PCR test will use a higher cycle count, more than likely resulting in a “positive” result.

China's Xi Jinping Says Soon No Enemy Will Be Able to Defeat the Country

hina can be undefeatable in a world mired in political turmoil, as long as it is self-reliant and balances its relationship with the outside world, Xi Jinping told Communist Party cadres in January.

His 10,000-word speech, given just five days after the Capitol Riots in the U.S., were published by the party's bimonthly theoretical journal Qiushi last Friday.

In his remarks titled "Seizing a New Development Stage, Implementing a New Development Philosophy and Constructing a New Development paradigm," the Chinese leader said the world was experiencing "profound change not seen for a century."

China, Xi alluded, has the right leadership and government to capitalize on the "enormous and unprecedented" opportunities and challenges facing the country's development. There would be more opportunities than challenges, he predicted.

China wants the world to know that resistance to its rise is futile

Leaders of china and America share an obsession: the notion that a large enough coalition of Western democracies might have the heft to confront a rising China about its authoritarian, state-capitalist ways, and demand that it follow a new trajectory, one that does less damage to norms and universal values that have governed the rich world since 1945.

India Getting P-8s In New Deal That Includes Local Investment

WASHINGTON: A new State Department-approved deal to sell six more P-8 submarine-hunting aircraft to India comes with the provision that 30% of the acquisition cost be spent in the Indian aerospace sector, an offset in keeping with the government’s push to bolster industrial capacity at home.

The “Make in India” program, promoted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has pulled in production on F-16s, P-8s, helicopters and missiles in recent years, as US companiescompete hard to win billions in new contracts with a nation seen by Washington as a critical ally in containing China.

Prior to the new deal for six P-8s, Boeing had sold 12 of the aircraft to New Delhi over the past decade, all of which carried the same 30% provision.

The terms of the agreement state that some P-8I parts and components will be made in locally, but Boeing can also get offset credit for components for other Boeing platforms sold to in India.

Biden DOJ Attempting To Shut Down Arizona Election Audit, Claiming It Will ‘Intimidate Black Voters’

It’s becoming abundantly clear that the democrats are getting scared over the auditing of the 2020 election taking place in Maricopa County Arizona.

The Biden Department of Justice is looking to not just oversee the auditing process, they are blatantly attempting to obstruct the entire operation.

Now, the Biden Department of Justice has sent a letter to Arizona Senate President Karen Fann taking issue with Maricopa County’s forensic audit of the 2020 election.

The letter on Department of Justice letterhead from Pamela Karlan, the principal deputy assistant attorney general of the Civil Rights Division, raised issues with two aspects of the forensic audit. The first issue, which raises concerns about the safeguarding of ballots and election systems by contractors at an insecure facility, seems fair enough. However, Karlan follows that concern with the ridiculous claim that this audit will somehow “intimidate” minority voters and “deter them from seeking to vote in the future.”

Aldous Huxley Foresaw Our Despots - Fauci, Gates, & The Vaccine Crusaders

In 1949, sometime after the publication of George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four, Aldous Huxley, the author of Brave New World (1931), who was then living in California, wrote to Orwell. Huxley had briefly taught French to Orwell as a student in high school at Eton.

Huxley generally praises Orwell's novel, which to many seemed very similar to Brave New World in its dystopian view of a possible future. Huxley politely voices his opinion that his own version of what might come to pass would be truer than Orwell's. Huxley observed that the philosophy of the ruling minority in Nineteen Eighty-Four is sadism, whereas his own version is more likely, that controlling an ignorant and unsuspecting public would be less arduous, less wasteful by other means. Huxley's masses are seduced by a mind-numbing drug, Orwell's with sadism and fear.

The most powerful quote In Huxley's letter to Orwell is this:

RSA Is Dead — We Just Haven’t Accepted It Yet

One of the biggest features of the internet is that it’s constantly evolving at an unbelievable pace. You can’t keep track of time in decades, or even years sometimes, when it comes to the web. The friendly AOL voice that used to greet us with, “You’ve got mail,” now feels like an ancient relic. Nobody has seen Jeeves in years.

So why is the internet still overleveraging a cryptosystem that is coming up on 45 years old?

In the mid-1970s, as computer scientists and mathematicians rushed to find a viable public key cryptosystem, two emerged: Diffie-Hellman and RSA. The internet equivalents of the Beatles and the Stones. While Diffie-Hellman bowed out like the Beatles and has now found new life in a new generation of elliptic curve approaches that were inspired by it, RSA is like the Stones, still touring well past its prime and begging the question, “Should we still let them be going out there?”

(Note to the reader: This article discusses a philosophical inquiry that many people find deeply, emotionally disturbing. Truly, and in all sincerity: If you're susceptible to existential dread, stop reading.)

Much has been said in recent years of the purported dangers and lethalities of artificial intelligence (AI). Technologists such as Elon Musk have said that AI is "far more dangerous than nukes," as CNBC says, and that a lack of regulations mediating the relationship between man and machine is "insane." The difference, he cites, is between case-specific AI — algorithms that control, say, what ads are pushed your way on Facebook — and AI with an open-ended utility function, which basically teach and write themselves. Era-defining physicist Stephen Hawking said the same before he passed away, as Vox recounts, as have AI researchers at Berkeley and Oxford.

Increasing Number of Illegal Aliens Evading Border Patrol; 42,000 in April

With Border Patrol agents overwhelmed by family groups and unaccompanied minors, more illegal aliens are escaping into the interior of the United States and fewer drugs are being seized.

During April, more than 177,000 illegal immigrants were apprehended by Border Patrol, according to preliminary Customs and Border Protection (CBP) numbers, as provided to Jaeson Jones, former captain in the Texas Department of Public Safety.

A further 42,620 illegal aliens escaped arrest by Border Patrol, which are known as “gotaways.”

During February and March, the gotaway number was around 30,000 per month, or 1,000 per day. That’s now up to almost 1,400 per day.

“What gotaway numbers really signify is the level of infiltration coming into the country that’s getting past CBP at the border,” Jones told The Epoch Times.

A Monday letter sent from the Maricopa County Attorney's Office to Ken Bennett, the former Arizona secretary of state and the liaison between the state Senate and the auditors, said the county had elected not to turn over "several routers" requested by the legislature due to an alleged "significant security risk to law enforcement data utilized by the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office as well as numerous federal agencies."

This is how Intel can define a 10nm node with approximately the same transistor density as TSMC’s 7nm.

Indiana man generated virtually no trash over past 5 years

ELWOOD, Ind. (AP) — Dressed in one of his usual tie-dye T-shirts, Tom Barmes stands on his porch and waves as a sanitation crew picks up trash from his neighbors.

Much like nearly every Friday for the past five years, the crew bypasses Barmes’ house. That’s because the 66-year-old Elwood native runs a zero-waste home where everything gets recycled, reduced or reused.

“I recycle or reuse everything possible I can,” he said.

According to Elwood Street Commission Dave Jones, who oversees the city’s trash pickup program, between 13 and 15 tons of trash is collected daily from homes and businesses.

Recycling since the 1970s, Barmes, who didn’t own a motorized vehicle until he was well into his 20s, has served on the Madison County Recycling Task Force.

“It kind of came gradually because it started out with pop cans and stuff like that,” he said.

Data leak implicates over 200,000 people in Amazon fake product review scam

An open database has revealed the identities of over 200,000 individuals who appear to be involved in Amazon fake product review schemes.

There is an ongoing battle between the e-commerce giant and dubious sellers, worldwide, who wish to hamstring competitors and gain an edge by generating fake reviews for their products.

This can include paying individuals to leave a glowing review or by offering free items in return for positive, public feedback.

How they operate and stay under Amazon's radar varies, but an open ElasticSearch server has exposed some of the inner workings of these schemes.

On Thursday, Safety Detectives researchers revealed that the server, public and online, contained 7GB of data and over 13 million records appearing to be linked to a widespread fake review scam.

It is not known who owns the server but there are indicators that the organization may originate from China due to messages written in Chinese, leaked during the incident.

'The Who' legend Roger Daltrey says the ‘woke’ generation is creating a miserable world that serves to stifle the kind of creative freedom he enjoyed in the 60s.

“I don’t know, we might get somewhere because it’s becoming so absurd now with AI, all the tricks it can do, and the woke generation,” said Daltrey.

“It’s terrifying, the miserable world they’re going to create for themselves. I mean, anyone who’s lived a life and you see what they’re doing, you just know that it’s a route to nowhere,” he added.

The singer noted how he was lucky to have lived through an era where freedom of speech was encouraged, not silenced.

Space Force Chief Scientist Says Developing Super-Soldiers Is ‘Imperative’

Dr. Joel Mozer said the technology could be used to create a 'superhuman workforce' for the military.

The top scientist in the US Space Force said last week that human augmentation should be embraced and that it is “imperative” for the US military to start working on such technology that could create a type of super-soldier.

“In our business of national defense, it’s imperative that we embrace this new age, lest we fall behind our strategic competitors,” Dr. Joel Mozer said at an event at the Air Force Research Laboratory.

Mozer said augmentation technology could produce a “superhuman workforce” that uses technologies like “augmented reality, virtual reality, and nerve stimulation.”

“You could put [an] individual into a state of flow, where learning is optimized, and retention is maximized,” he said. “This individual could be shaped into somebody with very high-performing potential.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This all sounds reasonable on the face of it; however, I have a question for the good Doctor; what happens when an individual who has had this done to them, returns to civilian life?!?

How will they resond to their own crying, teething baby?!? How will they resond to a spouse who may not quite react to something as they expected, no, demanded that they react?!?

The unasked question here, is how do these people get "deconditioned" from what they have gone through in order to return to ordinary civilial life?!?

Call me silly, but I worry about this.

Le Pen Cleared Of Breaking Hate Speech Laws For Posting Images of ISIS Atrocities

Populist leader Marine Le Pen has been cleared of violating hate speech laws after she was ludicrously charged for posting images of ISIS atrocities in an effort to illustrate the barbarity of ISIS.

Le Pen originally posted the images in 2015 as a rebuttal to comparisons that were being made between her National Front party and Islamic jihadists.

“This is what Daesh is,” she wrote under the photos, which showed ISIS militants executing people.

Despite posting the photos in an effort to denounce ISIS, Le Pen was accused of “disseminating violent messages that could seriously harm human dignity,” a charge that was never applied to media outlets or journalists who shared similar photos.

While anything other than an acquittal would have been incomprehensible, the fact that it took over 5 years to happen is absurd and undoubtedly related to Le Pen’s hostility to the French establishment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What this woman did... was to demonstrate the truth of the situation.

One knows that a society is on the brink of no return, when telling the truth gets criminalized.

IF these images were "fake news", that would have been horrendous; but in light of the fact that these images were of events which actually happened, these charges should never have been brought about by French authorities in the first place.

Religious/political assassinations are just plain morally wrong, period, end of discussion.

The F-35’s Carrier Variant Is Finally Going to Sea

  • The aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson will embark on a new deployment sometime this year.
  • The carrier’s air wing will include the F-35C, the carrier variant of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, for its first-ever cruise.
  • The deployment will also include the Navy’s new CMV-22 Osprey in the transport role.

Sometime later this year, the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson will leave its homeport of San Diego and head for the Western Pacific. The carrier will bring along two new additions for the cruise: the F-35C Joint Strike Fighter and the CMV-22 Osprey tiltrotor.

? You love badass planes. So do we. Let’s nerd out over them together.
The deployment will mark the first time in more than two decades a new carrier strike fighter has gone to sea. The Carl Vinson, a Nimitz-class nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, will go to sea with Carrier Air Wing 2, whose four strike squadrons mostly include F/A-18E/F Super Hornets.

Elon Musk Facing FBI Investigation For Dogecoin Ponzi Scheme

Elon Musk is rumored to be facing scrutiny by the FBI for allegedly pumping Dogecoin and dumping it on investors who aren’t quite sure what the currency is, or does. While the FBI did not confirm this investigation they released a statement saying. “It is important for people to know what they’re getting into. Just because someone is wealthy and seen as smart, that doesn’t mean you should take financial advice from them. We intend to prosecute anyone who partakes in ponzi schemes, pump and dump like schemes.”

Elon Musk: Dogecoin Will Live Forever
Musk responded to the rumored headlines in a tweet stating “Good luck catching my rocket. Doge will live forever. #dogefather.” Musk fans appeared to be happy with their technoking crapping on the federal government, many of whom begged Elon to start his own nation free from communist Joe Biden’s grimey hands. Musk is set to host Saturday Night Live in the coming weeks though it is unclear if he will be in the country by the time it airs

China "Indefinitely" Suspends Economic Dialogue With Australia As Relations Continue To Deteriorate

More recently, China accused Australia of giving a "free pass" to terror-sympathizers over accusations that Aussie politicians are backing Uighur activists and providing external support to Muslim fundamentalists in Xinjiang - which came just weeks after a senior Australian official warned that the "drums of war" are "beating" as relations continue to sour.

"In a world of perpetual tension and dread, the drums of war beat — sometimes faintly and distantly, and at other times more loudly and ever closer," said Australia’s Department of Home Affairs Secretary Mike Pezzullo in comments that were made public late last month.

Bulletin Of Atomic Scientists Opens The Wuhan Virus Pandora's Box

Why would anyone want to create a novel virus capable of causing a pandemic? Ever since virologists gained the tools for manipulating a virus’s genes, they have argued they could get ahead of a potential pandemic by exploring how close a given animal virus might be to making the jump to humans. And that justified lab experiments in enhancing the ability of dangerous animal viruses to infect people, virologists asserted.

With this rationale, they have recreated the 1918 flu virus, shown how the almost extinct polio virus can be synthesized from its published DNA sequence, and introduced a smallpox gene into a related virus.

Crimes of Covid Vaccine Maker Pfizer Documented

Pfizer, a drug company which appears to have won the lottery to produce the first Covid-19 vaccine, is currently battling hundreds of lawsuits over Zantac, a popular heartburn medication. Zantac lawsuits claim the popular drug can be contaminated with a cancer-causing substance called N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA). The Zantac suits are open-ended and ongoing, as the drug maker is fighting them; but Pfizer has, we know, committed several crimes or transgressions for which it has been punished in recent years. The company’s failings are well documented and worth reviewing at this critical time in human history as we all search for answers.

Russian Troops Mass Near Ukraine, So The U.S. Military Lands An Army Brigade In Albania

This spring Russia massed 80,000 troops and thousands of vehicles near Ukraine.

Now NATO is mobilizing 28,000 of its own troops for a sprawling, months-long series of war games with its locus—you guessed it—near Ukraine.

While the alliance’s Defender Europe 21 exercise is just the latest iteration of an annual training event and long has been in the works, its geography is no accident.

NATO—and the United States in particular—is determined to match Russian deployments where Russia is most aggressive.

“The Defender Europe exercise is going to conclude in June,” Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said, “but not before demonstrating joint-force readiness, lethality and interoperability, reinforcing the U.S. commitment to our allies and partners and providing an outstanding opportunity to highlight the superb job our men and women are doing every day and in the region—the Balkan and Black Sea regions in particular, and throughout Europe and the Africa area of operations.”

US Embassy message sparks online anger in China

BEIJING (AP) — An online message from the U.S. Embassy in Beijing has prompted anger online in China.

The message sent out on Chinese social media said applications were being accepted for study at American universities and those wishing to go should “jump at the chance like little puppies.”

That description triggered hundreds of thousands of comments calling the post, along with a video of puppy striving to cross a fence, racist.

The controversy comes amid heightened tensions between Beijing and Washington over disputes involving intellectual property, trade and human rights in Xinjiang and Tibet, among others. China has taken a hard line under President Joe Biden's administration as it increases its military spending and diplomatic strength.

Frustrated Israelis Says Russian Navy Protecting Iranian Tankers to Syria

Amid confused reports of a drone attack on an Iranian ship in the Mediterranean on its way to Syria, Iran appears to have moved its weapons shipments to Syria and Lebanon from the land — where Israel has regularly tracked and destroyed them — to ships that may be receiving protection from Russian vessels in the Mediterranean.

At the same time, defense sources here say Israel has intensified its aerial attacks on targets in Syria once the weapons are delivered by sea. The last such attack was on April 22.

Israeli defense sources here say the Iranian ships sail from the Red Sea, transit the Suez Canal and arrive in the Mediterranean. The defense sources say the ships documents claim they carry only oil, but there are indications that “oil is not the only cargo.” [Israel would of course say that.]

Israel finds itself in a situation where little can be done to stop this new route from Iran to Syria.

US Establishment Recycling “WMD” Iraq War Propaganda For Iran

By Robert Inlakesh

As the United States seems to be nearing re-entry into the Iran Nuclear Deal, the corporate media are whipping out every piece of war propaganda in order to drive a wedge between the Biden Administration and the Iranian government.

This Monday, in a piece so outrageous that it verges on the comical, Fox News published a piece which directly claim’s Iran has been seeking technology to develop “Weapons of Mass Destruction” as of last year.

The article, written by Benjamin Weinthal, using widely over-inflating reports which carry no evidence to back them up, added the finishing touch to the current mainstream media vernacular about Iran, bringing us from 2021 back to 2003...

6000% Increase in Reported Vaccine Deaths 1st Quarter 2021 Compared to 1st Quarter 2020

As can be expected when new experimental “vaccines” that are not approved by the FDA are given emergency use authorization to fight a “pandemic” that is now over a year old, reported deaths following the injections of these shots have now skyrocketed in the U.S. population by over 6000% here at the end of the first quarter of 2021, as compared to recorded deaths following FDA-approved vaccines at the end of the first quarter of 2020.

These new products, which many doctors and scientists claim do not even meet the legal definition of a “vaccine,” are described by the manufacturers themselves as “operating systems” called the “software of life,” and prior to COVID they have never been approved to be used on human populations.

There are literally thousands of doctors and scientists around the world who have spoken out against these experimental injections, some even calling them “biological weapons of mass destruction.”

White House Supports Social Media’s Ability To Silence ‘Misinformation’

According to the White House, social media companies have the responsibility of shutting down misinformation. During a press conference Wednesday, Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked about Facebook’s decision to uphold its ban of President Trump.

Specifically, she was asked if Big Tech oligarchs can muzzle a former president, what’s to stop them from silencing anyone? Psaki said she had no comment on Trump, but said Joe Biden’s view is that the major platforms have the job to stop amplifying “untrustworthy content.”

“His view is that there’s more that needs to be done to ensure that this type of misinformation, disinformation, damaging, sometimes life threatening information is not going out to the American public,” stated the press secretary.

Xi Jinping says China is ‘invincible’, regardless of challenges ahead

Chinese President Xi Jinping told Communist Party officials at the start of the year the world was in “turmoil” and would be for some time, but regardless of the challenges it faced, Beijing was “invincible”.

His comments came in a speech made during a study session at the Central Party School on January 11 – just five days after a mob stormed the US Capitol in Washington – and was published in full by party journal Qiushi on Friday.

“At present, the world is experiencing profound and unprecedented changes,” he said. “The most conspicuous feature of the world today can be summarised in one word – ‘turmoil’ – and it looks like this situation will continue for some time.”

Large parts of the speech, which ran to more than 12,000 words, concerned China’s recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic.

Jersey officials hold talks with French fishermen over rights dispute

Jersey officials are meeting French fishermen, who have been protesting over their post-Brexit rights, in an attempt to resolve the dispute.

Two Royal Navy ships and two French vessels are patrolling near Jersey while about 60 French and Jersey boats are at the island's St Helier port.

French fishermen say their rights are unfairly restricted by licences issued by the island under a new system.

No 10 said the PM has been in contact with Jersey officials over the row.

HMS Severn, which has previously been used to shadow Russian navy warships off the English coast, can be seen from the port, sitting off about a mile from the French boats. HMS Tamar is nearby and both ships are maintaining a presence and not making any effort to intervene.

IEA: U.S. Lacks Critical Minerals, Biden’s Policies Benefit China

The International Energy Agency (IEA) warned Joe Biden’s policies are bolstering Chinese control over the global supply of critical minerals.

In a new report, the IEA said the U.S. is lacking a stable supply of rare earth materials along with copper, cobalt and lithium. The agency pointed out that China controls between 60 and 90 percent of the supply of such minerals, which are mainly used in advanced electronics and clean energy production.

Back in 2019, President Trump took steps to boost America’s own supply, but the IEA said those efforts were not enough and the U.S. must diversify its sources of rare elements.

“As you can see on the screen for lithium, cobalt and rare earth elements, the world’s top three producing nations control well over three quarters of global output,” explained Tim Gould, the IEA’s head of division for energy supply outlooks and investment. “And in some cases ,a single country is responsible for around half of worldwide production.”

Four senators sold stocks before coronavirus threat crashed market

Four senators sold stocks shortly after a January briefing in the Senate on the novel coronavirus outbreak, unloading shares that plummeted in value a month later as the stock market crashed in the face of a global pandemic.

According to financial disclosure forms, Sens. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.), James Inhofe (R-Okla.), Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and Richard Burr (R-N.C.) each sold hundreds of thousands of dollars in stocks within days of the Senate holding a classified briefing on Jan. 24 with Trump administration officials on the threat of the coronavirus outbreak.

The sales raise questions about whether the senators violated the STOCK Act, a law that bans members of Congress from making financial trades based on nonpublic information.

This old programming language is suddenly hot again. But its future is still far from certain

Fortran is the oldest commercial programming language, designed at IBM in the 1950s. And even though, for years, programmers have been predicting its demise, 64 years later it's still kicking, with users including top scientists from NASA and the Department of Energy using it on the world's most powerful supercomputers.

It even recently – and very unexpectedly – popped up again in a ranking of the most popular programming languages, albeit in 20th place. This resurgence has been explained by the huge need for scientific number crunching; something that Fortran is very good at.
