Europe Commits Suicide by Importing Barbarians - Russia Watches With Great Sadness

Around the world, very few people are capable of wrapping their heads around the European reaction to the migrant crisis. On the side of the migrants, we have avid displays of barbarism, fanaticism and aggression; on the side of the Europeans, we have abject fear of appearing… intolerant.

In an out-of-control situation where we would expect people to organize, protest, put up road blocks and vote en masse for nationalist parties, we are instead subjected to the ridiculous spectacle of meek, effeminate Europeans dressed up in unisex outfits chalking “No to terrorism!” on sidewalks.

Most people around the world see in this an orchidaceous display of anthropological nullity. “Is Europe dead?” they wonder aloud.

Cleaner ‘Bridge’ Fuels Are Killing Up To 46,000 Americans Per Year, Study Shows

Replacing coal with fuels like natural gas and wood may offer some climate benefits, but the harm to public health remains.

Burning natural gas and wood instead of coal was supposed to be a bridge to a safer future, where heat and electricity came from sources that didn’t generate as much pollution.

But new research suggests the alternative fuels are less of a bridge and more of a staircase.

A new Harvard University study found that, in at least 19 states plus Washington, D.C., burning gas now kills more people than coal because of exposure to a deadly type of fine particulate matter known as PM2.5 that lingers in the air and lodges in lung tissue.

From Mind Control To Viruses: How The Government Keeps Experimenting On Its Citizens

The U.S. government, in its pursuit of so-called monsters, has itself become a monster.

This is not a new development, nor is it a revelation.

This is a government that has in recent decades unleashed untold horrors upon the world—including its own citizenry—in the name of global conquest, the acquisition of greater wealth, scientific experimentation, and technological advances, all packaged in the guise of the greater good.

Mind you, there is no greater good when the government is involved. There is only greater greed for money and power.

Fact-Checkers Missed Stealth Edits To Abrams' Op-Ed

In the internet age, articles can be revised after publication almost without a trace. “Stealth editing,” the practice of revising a published piece without disclosing that is has been edited, poses an interesting challenge to fact-checking outlets and the integrity of their investigations. Last month, fact-checkers relied on an op-ed in USA Today written by Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams to evaluate critics’ claims about Abrams’ position on recent Georgia boycotts. However, they didn’t know the piece had been stealth-edited after a key development in the story.

Panic Hoarding Guns Now Enters 16th Month As Biden Seeks Ban 

Americans continued to panic hoard guns for the 16th straight month in April, according to the FBI's National Instant Criminal Background Check System's (NICS) statistics report. The data provides insight into the trends behind Americans purchasing firearms.

The FBI's NICS logged 3.514 million background checks in April 2021, which is more than any other April on record. Background checks have been elevated since the virus pandemic began and recently supercharged under an anti-gun Biden administration.

Dangers Of Programmable Money Explained

Dominic Frisby with Money, Markets & Other Matters talks about the war on cash and central bank digital currency, known as CBDC. He questions if CBDCs are "the final step into the brave new world - Orwellian great reset dystopia - we seem to be heading towards" or are they "the onramp to the Bitcoin motorway." He said the answer is "both."

Frisby points out the biggest issue with CBDCs is that digital money is "programmable," which means the issuer, such as the Federal Reserve or the Bank of England, can build specific rules into it. He said cash grants users freedom and power.

Thailand, Laos Report Surging COVID Cases As India's Outbreaks Spreads Across Asia

Just as the WHO feared, India's brutal second wave has spilled over its borders, sending COVID-19 cases rising across the region, as cases climb in neighboring Bhutan and Nepal and as far away as Laos and Thailand.

According to Bloomberg, the acceleration in the region is mainly due to more contagious mutant strains, like the B.1617 variant first identified in India, which has been now been traced beyond its borders. The WHO has released a list of 10 mutant strains that it is keeping a close eye on.

New strains are identified every day as the virus continues to evolve, but only a handful make the WHO’s official watchlist as a "variant of interest" or the more serious designation "variant of concern," which is generally defined as a mutated strain that’s more contagious, more deadly and more resistant to current vaccines and treatments.

White South African Farmer Previously Paralyzed in Violent Attack is Tied Up and Murdered in His Wheelchair

A paralyzed South African farmer was tied up and brutally murdered in his wheelchair by attackers who had been hiding near the property waiting for the perfect time to strike.

46-year-old Neil McKay was paralyzed 20 years ago in a violent robbery when he was shot in the spine.

McKay’s mother found him murdered in his bedroom when she went to his farm to check on him.

A family friend said the attackers targeted McKay so they could steal money out of his safe.

According to Bennett, at a ‘Media Only Night’ about a week prior, Ryan Macias showed up and reportedly told people he was media but when Macias was asked for credentials he didn’t have any. Unfortunately, some of the staff thought he presented himself as part of the media and they didn’t like it.

The Feminization of Western Men

In a remarkable interview published on Russia Insider in March 2019, RT’s Anissa Naouai interviewed Danish journalist Iben Thranholm about the disappearance of Western manhood: Dear European Men: You Are Pathetic Pussies. This is a Danish woman’s conclusion.

Thranholm says that Western men have been feminized and Western women defeminized. She says feminists have destroyed men, who are now raised to be women. Consequently, there is no one to protect white women from the sexually aggressive immigrant-invaders brought into all European countries by the anti-white European Union, an enemy of national sovereignty that wants the destruction of European ethnic nationalities. The EU is heavily supported by Washington and American money.

The War on Whites

The War on Whites is moving to a higher level — fast. Signs are everywhere; they are undeniable. First and foremost, understand and accept that this is happening. For many, there will be no escape. If you are White and don’t yet grasp what is happening, quickly find out from someone who does. Lives will depend on it.

In my previous TOO article, I reviewed “collapse” novels by Matthew Bracken as a means to put average Whites in the frame of mind needed to accept that “our” government is now fully ready to attack us. All institutions are now arrayed against the White Christian founding stock of the United States of America: from the government, to the media, to education, to corporations, to the military, to the churches — all of it. And I know many of you readers see this. Some, however, don’t.

The emergence of the internet was met with hope and enthusiasm by people who understood that the plutocrat-controlled mainstream media were manipulating public opinion to manufacture consent for the status quo. The democratization of information-sharing was going to give rise to a public consciousness that is emancipated from the domination of plutocratic narrative control, thereby opening up the possibility of revolutionary change to our society’s corrupt systems.

But it never happened. Internet use has become commonplace around the world and humanity is able to network and share information like never before, yet we remain firmly under the thumb of the same power structures we’ve been ruled by for generations, both politically and psychologically. Even the dominant media institutions are somehow still the same.

Chauvin Attorney Files Request For New Trial After BLM Activist Caught Deceiving Court to Get On Jury

"The State committed pervasive, prejudicial prosecutorial misconduct, which deprived Mr. Chauvin of his constitutional rights to due process and a fair trial, including but not limited to: disparaging the Defense; improper vouching; and failing to adequately prepare its witnesses," the motion reads.

- The filing cites factors such as "the interests of justice; abuse of discretion that deprived the Defendant of a fair trial; prosecutorial and jury misconduct; errors of law at trial; and a verdict that is contrary to law."

- Chauvin's attorney Eric Nelson, who filed the motion, did not name any jurors or explain what specific misconduct he was referring to.

- "The publicity here was so pervasive and so prejudicial before and during this trial that it amounted to a structural defect in the proceedings," the motion read.

President Reuven Rivlin is consulting with party leaders to decide which candidate to task with forming a government after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's mandate expired on Tuesday at midnight with no breakthrough in coalition talks, prolonging Israel's unprecedented political stalemate that has seen voters return to the polls four times in less than two years.

Billionaire Is Perplexed That Underpaid Oil Workers Are Striking

Since mid-April, the United Metro Energy facility in Brooklyn has had a squadron of oil workers stationed outside—alternating shifts so that men are there 24 hours, seven days a week—striking for better pay and benefits from the company’s owner: grocery store billionaire, twice-failed mayoral candidate, and right-wing shock jock John Catsimatidis.

The workers, a coalition of mechanics, terminal operators, and service technicians, elected to go on strike on April 19, following years of delayed negotiations on a union contract, which they voted to form back in 2018. “We are out there every single day, around the clock,” said Assaf John, who has been working as a service technician at the company for 12 years. “I’m here until 3 o’clock, then we have guys coming in at 3 p.m., and some who are there overnight until the morning.”

The Criminalization of Dissent

One of the hallmarks of totalitarian systems is the criminalization of dissent. Not just the stigmatization of dissent or the demonization of dissent, but the formal criminalization of dissent, and any other type of opposition to the official ideology of the totalitarian system. Global capitalism has been inching its way toward this step for quite some time, and now, apparently, it is ready to take it.

Germany has been leading the way. For over a year, anyone questioning or protesting the “Covid emergency measures” or the official Covid-19 narrative has been demonized by the government and the media, and, sadly, but not completely unexpectedly, the majority of the German public. And now such dissent is officially “extremism.”

Rockets Rain Over US Bases In Iraq

Military bases of the United States in Iraq are suffering from poor weather conditions, as it would seem it’s raining rockets in the first days of May and late April.

Late on May 2nd, the US Camp Victory in Iraq came under rocket fire. Two rockets hit the site near the Baghdad airport. The third shell was reportedly intercepted by the C-RAM anti-aircraft system.

It was the second attack on Camp Victory in the last 10 days.

Not too long after, on May 3d, the Balad Air Base in the Salah al-Din province that houses Iraqi forces and US contractors was targeted by another rocket attack. The commander of the base, Div. Gen. Sahi Abdul Ameri, said that a total of 9-10 explosions were heard, but only three self-made rockets exploded on the territory of the base.

Biden Admin Drops Dozens Of Charges Against Violent Protesters In Portland

We recently discussed how the plea agreement with a BLM protester (who tried to cut the brake lines on a police vehicle) may indicate a significant shift from the Trump Administration in prosecuting violent protesters. New figures out of Portland would indicate that there is such a major shift occurring. The Justice Department are dropping 58 of the 97 criminal charges brought after the Portland riots, including assaults on officers.

I previously criticized the federalization of these protest cases. Local police were clearly relying on the federal government - as opposed to their own local prosecutors - to address violent protesters. Yet I was also critical of the role of local officials in dismissing and even in some cases fueling such violence with their rhetoric or inaction.

There is clearly a reluctance by many local officials to prosecute violent protesters. Indeed, cities like Atlanta have dropped charges against protesters.

“Lions do not bow to hyenas”: Artur Pawlowski continues to hold services despite secret warrant

Street Church Ministries Pastor Artur Pawlowski is no stranger to controversy. He has been known to Calgary police for years, and was our very first www.FightTheFines.com cases.

Artur says that he was the first Canadian to be arrested for publicly reading the Bible, but that was only the start of his run-ins with Calgary and provincial authorities.

The tension between Artur and the authorities has rapidly come to a boil with added restrictions that are being implemented due to lockdown measures.

Pastor Art previously received a $1,200 ticket for feeding the homeless, which authorities called an illegal gathering.

We hired an amazing lawyer for Art named Sarah Miller, and thanks to her work, those fines were dropped. Also dropped were the mask violation tickets both Art and his brother received, which was fitting since the tickets were issued while Street Church members fed the homeless outside.

A Vaxxing Question

In 1956 German pharmaceutical company Chemie Grünenthal GmbH, licensed a new experimental drug designed to treat colds, flu, nausea and morning sickness. Known as Distaval in the UK, Distillers Biochemicals Ltd declared the drug could ‘be given with complete safety to pregnant women and nursing mothers without adverse effect on mother or child’ – a basic pre-requisite for licensing a drug.

While forty-nine countries licensed the drug under multiple different names, the then head of the FDA Dr. Frances Kelsey, a physician-pharmacologist with a profound interest in fetal development, refused authorization for use in the US market due to her concerns about the lack of evidence regarding the drug’s safety.

The drug was also known as Thalidomide.

When did May Day Turn Into an Immigrants’ Rights Day?

On May 1st, International Workers Day, immigrants and their supporters will hold marches all over the country. Some of the events’ organizers are based in Latino immigrant communities; labor unions, civil rights organizations, and other kinds of progressive actors will also be involved.

May Day as an occasion for grassroots protests is an artifact of the late nineteenth century. At that time, the mobilizations were led by radical unions, which included large immigrant memberships. But in the following decades, the labor movement became dominated by more moderate unions, often with virulent anti-immigrant views.

By 2006, as Victor Narro, Kent Wong, and Janna Shadduck-Hernández write, U.S. unions were only beginning to reincorporate the needs of immigrant workers into their programs. In 2000, at the urging of immigrant union members, the AFL-CIO reversed longstanding policy by calling for unconditional amnesty and protections for undocumented immigrants.

Child Rape Gang Victim: UK Police Did Nothing as I Was Abused by ‘Hundreds’ of Pakistani Men

A grooming gang survivor has revealed that she was abused by hundreds of Pakistani heritage men for years, but despite reporting her abusers to the police, none have ever been arrested.

Sarah — a fake name given to protect her identity — said that she was systematically raped and abused as a child in the early 2000s after running away from care homes in Derby.

She was eventually awarded compensation by the local government after authorities acknowledged the abuse and the repeated failures of social services to protect her from being raped. But she says despite the recognition of the acts perpetrated against her as a child and the confirmation that social services had failed to protect her, the police have yet to act on the information she gave them.

Disney Forced By 'Wokeism' To Cancel Another Princess

'It's hard to understand why Disneyland of 2021 would choose to add a scene with such old fashioned ideas of what a man is allowed to do to a woman, especially given the company's current emphasis on removing problematic scenes from rides like Jungle Cruise and Splash Mountain,' the review stressed.

'Why not re-imagine an ending in keeping with the spirit of the movie and Snow White's place in the Disney canon, but that avoids this problem?'

Jungle Cruise, which launched in 1955 and remains closed for updates, is being revamped to remove 'negative depictions' of native peoples that depict them as savages or subservient, Disney announced earlier this year.

Disney revealed last June that its Splash Mountain ride was also being overhauled to remove its associations with black stereotypes in the 1946 film 'Song of the South,' on which it was based.

Saudi Arabia Poised To Mend Relations With Assad In Major First Since War Began

Multiple international reports on Tuesday revealed that Saudi Arabia's powerful intelligence chief traveled to Damascus Monday to meet with his Syrian counterpart in what's being seen as a major step toward detente. The two broke off relations since near the start of the war in 2011, especially as it became clear the Saudis were a key part of the Western allied push for regime change, through covert support to anti-Assad insurgents and jihadists which included regular weapons shipments.

Gen Khalid Humaidan, the head of Saudi Arabia's General Intelligence Directorate, led a delegation where they were received by Syrian government officials in Damascus. According to The Guardian, Riyadh is currently preparing for a "normalization of relations" - expected to come immediately after the Muslim holiday of Ramadan next week.

$17.5 Million In Revenue And $5.4 Billion In Losses: Archegos Was A 300x-Levered Time Bomb For Credit Suisse

A bank's prime brokerage unit is supposed to be a safe, reliable and predictable generator of revenue, resulting from modest-margin transactions with a bank's hedge fund client base. It's safe because the bank's risk managers scour the bank's exposure to various hedge funds, and immediately flag any clients that become too big and a potential source of loss (it's also "safe" because the bank's prime brokerage management tends to make far less than the frontline Sales and Trading staff).

That is, at least, the theory. The practice, as the recent Archegos fiasco demonstrated, is anything but.

Jordan Peterson to Tucker Carlson: Do you want the truth on your side, or do you want to hide behind falsehood

Canadian clinical psychologist Jordan Peterson examines the deeper meaning of life and how to live it in a new episode of Fox Nation’s "Tucker Carlson Today."

In his new book "Beyond Order: 12 More Rules for Life," Peterson breaks down some of these rules for living to the fullest and pressed that making the decision to be honest is an essential practice.

"Whatever happens as a consequence of telling the truth is the best thing that can happen," he said. "It doesn’t really matter how it looks to you at the moment, or maybe even across the years. It’s an article of faith, in some sense."

Peterson posed the question: Is reality better constituted as a consequence of truth or falsity? If it is a consequence of truth, he explained, then being honest really is the best decision.

"This is what happened because I said what I had to say as clearly as I could say it," he said. "And that’s as good as it could be… It’s good compared to all possible, realistic alternatives."

U.S. Vows to Work With Partners to Keep Pressure on Venezuela's Maduro

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken vowed on Tuesday that Washington would work with partners in the region to maintain pressure on the government of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro for a peaceful return to democracy.

In pre-recorded remarks to a conference on Latin America, Blinken also said the Biden administration would continue criticism of the "repression of human rights" in Cuba.

Blinken's stern words came just a day after a senior White House official made clear in an interview with Reuters that the administration was in no rush to ease sanctions on Maduro's Socialist government or make major gestures toward Communist-ruled Havana.

The five heads of state signed a joint declaration pledging multifaceted cooperation, including on security concerns.

Ukraine’s four partners in the meeting are to the north of it, are on the Baltic Sea and border Russia, its external territory of Kaliningrad and Belarus, Russia’s Union State partner. In fact two of them surround Kaliningrad on the land side, two border Russia proper and three border Belarus. All four nations host NATO Battlegroups and U.S. armed forces assigned to the Pentagon’s Operation Atlantic Resolve.

UK health secretary and chief lockdown promoter begins push to legalize assisted suicide

British health secretary Matt Hancock, who has presided over the country’s harsh lockdown regime, has taken initial steps to legalize assisted suicide in the UK.

Hancock wrote to Office of National Statistics (ONS) head Sir Ian Diamond, asking for data “to inform the debate” about doctor-assisted suicide two weeks ago, The Telegraph reported. The secretary also met with MPs to discuss the issue, the outlet said.

Hancock reportedly told the All Party Parliamentary Group for Choice at the End of Life that he was interested in data about Britons who leave the country to kill themselves in foreign doctor-assisted suicide clinics. Hancock, who previously opposed legalization efforts, claimed to have switched his stance, saying that “views of this do change.”

The parliamentary group supporting assisted suicide, led by Cabinet minister Andrew Mitchell, is calling for a referendum on the matter as soon as 2024.

Judge orders release of Trump obstruction memo, accuses Barr of deception

A federal judge has ordered the Department of Justice (DOJ) to release a March 2019 legal memo clearing former President Trump of potential obstruction of justice charges following the Mueller investigation, with the judge accusing former Attorney General William Barr and agency lawyers of deceiving the public.

District Judge Amy Berman Jackson on Monday ordered the DOJ to release the legal memo within two weeks in response to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by the liberal watchdog group Citizens for Ethics and Responsibility in Washington (CREW).

The DOJ had argued in court that the full memo - portions of which have already been released - should be withheld because it falls under exceptions to the public records law for attorney-client privilege and deliberative government decisionmaking.

Tell the truth, America… the G7 meeting is all about trying to contain the rise of China

The supposed theme of this week’s G7 summit in London is a focus on establishing a rules-based international order, says Antony Blinken. What that means is the US trying to persuade other countries to get tough on China.

The meeting of the ministers of the G7 group of advanced economies – or self-styled “leading democracies” – promises to be a fascinating affair. In attendance are the United Kingdom, which is chairing the meeting, as well as the United States, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Japan, alongside honorary invitees South Korea, India and Australia.

High on the agenda are Russia, China and the situation in Myanmar, with British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab giving an idea of the general theme by referring to those in attendance as “like-minded countries agile enough to work together.”

Iran London Embassy siege still shrouded in mystery and unanswered questions after 41 years

Tomorrow marks the 41st anniversary of the culmination of the siege at the Iranian Embassy in London, an event with multiple hidden dimensions, and one which the UK is deeply reluctant to illuminate.

While the six-day siege - April 30 to May 05 1980 - was a tragedy for Iran – as demonstrated by the cold blooded killing of two embassy workers – by contrast the incident proved to be a bonanza for the UK’s Special Air Service (SAS), which subsequently cashed in on the incident by exporting its services and expertise to special forces around the world.

The terrorist takeover of the Iranian embassy, its bloody conclusion and aftermath continues to cast a shadow on increasingly fraught Anglo-Iranian relations.

Economist: American Cannot Handle Biden Spending Spree, 'No Logic' To Plans

Biden’s address to a Joint Session of Congress last week was "pretty boring," he noted, "but he did lay out a very aggressive left-wing tax-and-spend agenda — massive spending for everything from babysitting services to free healthcare, everything is going to be free.”

“Everyone knows that everything cannot be free,” he went on to say.

Moore continued, “we used to talk about the V-shaped recovery, so that's what we're seeing right now, and I'm here to tell you, I don't think we need a blizzard of additional spending. Just let the economy heal on its own; we don’t need this avalanche of programs that Joe Biden is talking about. After all, somebody is going to have to pay the tab for all this spending. I think the American people are starting to turn against it."

Just 8 percent believe that social distancing measures will never stop, while 79.1 percent think mask wearing will remain in place the longest. COVID measures have been in place in some capacity since March, when the pandemic hit the U.S. hard.

World’s Most Vaccinated Nation Activates Curbs as Cases Rise

Seychelles, which has fully vaccinated more of its population against Covid-19 than any other country, has closed schools and canceled sporting activities for two weeks as infections surge.

The measures, which include bans on the intermingling of households and the early closure of bars, come even as the country has fully vaccinated more than 60% of its adult population with two doses of coronavirus vaccines. The curbs are similar to those last imposed at the end of 2020.

“Despite of all the exceptional efforts we are making, the Covid-19 situation in our country is critical right now with many daily cases reported last week,” Peggy Vidot, the nation’s health minister, said at a press conference Tuesday.

Hundreds of protesters had gathered in the southwestern Colombian city of Cali late Monday, pushing for economic justice on the sixth day of anti-government demonstrations. Then, Ana Maria Burgos said, police suddenly opened fire, moving in on the crowd with riot shields and batons.

The 43-year-old teacher said she saw blood pouring from the heads of protesters.

“The gunfire was indiscriminate,” said Burgos, who had volunteered as a human rights observer during the protests. “They beat us and threw people to the ground. I heard bullets being fired wherever I went.”

Chinese TV maker: Yes, our Android TVs spied on customers [updated]

Skyworth blames collection of sensitive data on third-party app
Updated with comment from Skyworth USA.

A top Chinese TV maker that's made inroads into the North American market admits that its TVs have been spying on users, or at least users in China.

Skyworth, which made a big splash at CES 2020 in Las Vegas and sells at least six TV models in the U.S., said in a statement posted online last week that a third-party application called Gozen Service on its Android TVs had been collecting more data than it was supposed to.

According to an unnamed Skyworth TV owner who posted about it on a Chinese software-development forum, the Gozen Service app is developed by a company called Gozen Data. The app collects data about all of the internet-connected gadgets on the home wireless network, as well as the names of nearby Wi-Fi networks, and sends to a Gozen-run web server.

  • Police called to centre in city's south after receiving tip-off about alleged theft
  • Workers had allegedly found the cash haul in the form of $50 and $100 notes
  • Three workers at the facility have been charged with possessing stolen cash

Recycling staff who found almost $40,000 in cash on their facility's conveyer belt allegedly helped themselves to some of the money and told their colleagues to 'keep it quiet'.

Police were called to the recycling centre in Perth's south on April 12 after receiving a tip-off that the workers had found the money in the form of $50 and $100 notes.

The person who reported the alleged theft claimed the staff had been told to keep quiet about the discovery.

Continued US refusal to terminate Iran sanctions will definitely bring talks to halt: Source tells Press TV

An informed source tells Press TV that the United States’ continued refusal to terminate all the sanctions it has imposed on Iran will definitely bring the Vienna negotiations on the revival of the 2015 nuclear deal to a halt.

Speaking to Press TV on the condition of anonymity, the source said Iran is still emphasizing the full implementation of the deal’s Article 29 and the termination of all the sanctions related to the nuclear deal and those re-imposed or relabeled during the term of ex-US President Donald Trump.

“America’s insistence on not terminating these sanctions will lead to a definitive halt in the negotiations” under way in Vienna, Austria, on revitalizing the nuclear deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the source said.

‘My job is to uphold the four walls around the country:’ Soleimani said rejecting call to run for president

An Iranian lawmaker says Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani brushed aside his offer for the legendary commander to take part in the upcoming 2021 presidential election just months before his assassination by the United States by stressing that he had a responsibility to protect the country militarily.

Speaking to Tasnim on Monday, Lawmaker Mohammad-Mahdi Zahedi said General Soleimani never eyed the country’s top political offices, despite the fact that he enjoyed enormous popularity among Iranians.

The lawmaker said that around two months prior to General Soleimani’s assassination in January 2020, “I told him ‘Let us start working now for your candidacy in the [Persian calendar year] 1400 (2021); and enter the field as the candidate of the revolutionary current and run for president.”

Russia says ready to leave SWIFT, plans to join Iran’s Sepam

Russia says it is preparing to leave US-dominated international payment system SWIFT and pairing with alternative systems, including Iran’s electronic financial messaging platform Sepam.

The decision announced by Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova comes in the wake of a resolution passed recently by the European Parliament calling for Russia's expulsion from the SWIFT financial network.

In an interview with RT television network, Zakharova said while Russian authorities still assess the likelihood of being cut from the Western payment system, they are already working to reduce risks and possible damage.

“So, as an alternative to SWIFT, the system of transferring financial communications of the Bank of Russia is considered,” she said.

“We study the options for pairing with foreign systems, such as European SEPA, Iranian Sepam, Chinese Cup and CIPS,” Zakharova added.

RAF’s ‘Dambusters’ squadron set to begin Iraq and Syria bombing mission

The Royal Air Force (RAF) is set to deploy its 617 squadron – known as the “Dambusters” – allegedly against Daesh targets in Iraq and Syria.

The Ministry of Defense says F35B stealth fighter jets will join so-called Operation Shader from the Carrier Strike Group centered on the HMS Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier.

Eight RAF and 10 US Marine Corps F35Bs are based on HMS Queen Elizabeth, and these assets are joined by an additional six Royal Navy ships, a submarine, 14 naval helicopters and a company of Royal Marines.

Trying to justify the latest deployment, the Chief of the Air Staff, Air Chief Marshal Sir Mike Wigston, claimed that he was in no doubt that “violent extremism and the toxic ideology underpinning it is still rooted” in the West Asia region.

Births in U.S. Drop to Levels Not Seen Since 1979

The number of babies born in America last year was the lowest in more than four decades, according to federal figures released Wednesday that show a continuing U.S. fertility slump.

U.S. women had about 3.61 million babies in 2020, down 4% from the prior year, provisional data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics shows. The total fertility rate—a snapshot of the average number of babies a woman would have over her lifetime—fell to 1.64. That was the lowest rate on record since the government began tracking it in the 1930s, and likely before that when families were larger, said report co-author Brady Hamilton. Total births were the lowest since 1979.

COMEX Gold Delivery Update

As we've been reporting for over a year, something radically snapped and changed at the COMEX in March of 2020. To that end, it's time for another update.

If you've followed the precious metals for any length of time, then you likely know that "delivery" on COMEX has always been a charade designed to impart legitimacy to the price discovered there through the trading of digital derivatives. For time immemorial, only a few contracts would ever "stand for delivery" on the bi-monthly schedule, and the participants in this warrant-shuffling game were almost entirely bullion banks. These banks would trade warehouse receipts back-and-forth in their shell game designed to create and maintain the illusion of physical delivery.

Trump launches new website where only he can tweet It's basically a blog.

(the site is DonaldJTrump.com)
Former President Donald Trump must really miss the megaphone he lost when he was banned from Twitter and Facebook following the Capitol riot.

Because on Tuesday, he launched a website. Where only he can write posts.

Trump’s new sounding board is “From The Desk Of Donald J. Trump,” a section of his website where—as of now—it’s just a long string of thoughts and posts from the former president.

On Tuesday, the site led with a video introducing the website, promising that it would be “a beacon of freedom” and a “place to speak freely and safely.” It has been backfilled with older posts of his as well.

While it promises a “place to speak freely and safely,” the site only has options for visitors to share the posts on Twitter and Facebook. It also has a heart icon, but it is unclear what exactly it does.

Ruling On Trump Ban Marks Defining Moment For Facebook Panel

Facebook's independent oversight board rules Wednesday on the platform's ban of former US president Donald Trump in a case that could set a precedent for how social media handles harmful content from world leaders.

The ruling, set for release at 1300 GMT Wednesday, is likely to be a defining moment for the leading social network's so-called "supreme court" envisioned by company founder Mark Zuckerberg to make thorny decisions on what to allow or remove from Facebook.

The oversight board, which makes decisions that are binding on Facebook and cannot be appealed, will rule on whether to leave the Trump ban in place or allow him back on the platform. It may also make related recommendations to the California-based social giant.

"This is a huge decision, it's getting a lot of attention and deservedly so," said Daniel Kreiss, University of North Carolina professor and researcher specializing in politics and social media.

Facebook rejects creepy ads that show how much data it collects about you

Signal wanted to run ads on Instagram putting it all in your face

It's no secret that Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp collect a fair bit user data. But how much exactly? A new blog post by the makers of Signal, the open-source secure messaging platform, shows that it's quite a lot.

"You got this ad because you're a newlywed Pilates instructor and you're cartoon crazy," reads one ad that Signal had planned to run on Instagram. "This ad used your location to see you're in La Jolla [a San Diego suburb]. You're into parenting blogs and thinking about LGBTQ adoption."

That's a shame, because as Harada explained in the blog post, "the way most of the internet works today would be considered intolerable if translated into comprehensible real-world analogs, but it endures because it is invisible."

"Facebook's own tools have the potential to divulge what is otherwise unseen," he added. "We wanted to use those same tools to directly highlight how most technology works."

Fauci Rejects Pandemic Being Close To Ending: ‘In The Bottom Of The 6th Inning’

“Well, you know, we’re at least halfway through,” Fauci replied. “I hope we’re seeing, and I do believe, Wolf, I’m not trying to be overly enthusiastic about what’s going on vis-à-vis the vaccine program, which is so successful. But we’ve really got to not declare victory prematurely. So we’re in the late innings, but it’s not over. That’s the thing we’ve really got to get people to appreciate. We’re going in the right direction; we’re seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, but now’s not the time to declare victory. It’s the time to get more and more people vaccinated, just the way the president said today. We want to get to that goal; it’s a doable goal, and I believe we’ll get there.”

A Case of Graphical Correlations: Making Sense of India’s COVID-19 Surge

By Mathew Maavak

India is currently witnessing a COVID-19 surge of unprecedented proportions, with an allegedly triple-mutant strain stretching the nation’s healthcare infrastructure to the limits. The uncertainty hanging over the nation is compounded by viral despatches of dead bodies piling up in morgues; of people dropping dead in the streets; of despondent souls jumping off their balconies; and of funeral pyres all over the country. There will be no public service-minded Big Tech censorship in this instance...

India was rather late in joining the mass vaccination bandwagon. Throughout 2020, its COVID-19 mortality figures were moderate by global standards due to the efficacy of low-cost treatment protocols. Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) was sanctioned for early stage treatment from March 2020 onwards; while a few months later, India’s most populous state of Uttar Pradesh (population 231 million) replaced HCQ with ivermectin (an anti-parasitic drug)...

[Video] Senior NHS Board Member Warns: Stop The Genocide Or Our Children Are Next

If you had a magic wand, what would you like to see happen at the moment to help resolve what’s going on?

Whistleblower: If I had a magic wand, it would just stop. It would stop now, before we hurt anybody else. That would be amazing. That would be the best day ever, because every day I wake up, I think about how I can find that golden nugget to try and wake up the people around me to the damage we are causing. We are causing — I mean, we heard the word ‘genocide’ from the lady on Wednesday. I don’t disagree with that statement. And it’s terrifying, and it saddens me, and the reason I’m staying where I am for now is to try and make a difference in whatever way I can, but — like she said, and I would absolutely agree with this — I want to see that judgment day. I will give evidence.

Clotting and Covid Vaccine "Science"

Simply put, there is overwhelming evidence that the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein (that is also synthetically produced by the Covid vaccines) is a central part of the mechanisms of morbidity and mortality of SARS-CoV-2, and therefore is also a risk of the vaccine. In regard to clotting, that risk is greater if you receive a vaccine.

The data clearly demonstrate that the last thing you would ever want to do is make a vaccine that produces a spike protein. As the literature clearly showed, it would cause significant damage, including brain clots and death. And that literature, for the most part, was available before the release of Covid vaccines to the public.

US economy is growing quickly but flashing an inflation warning sign: Prices of goods we use every day are rising at their fastest pace in three years, with coffee up 8%, bread up 11% and gasoline up 22%

The US economy is roaring back to life after stalling out during the pandemic, but there are warning signs flashing that could hit consumers right in the pocketbook.

Measures of inflation - or the prices of goods and services that we all pay - are rising much more quickly than experts like to see. If those price increases get out of control, then the economic boom is likely to come to a screeching halt.

And many signs of inflation are already here - with the prices of groceries, household items, gas and electricity, for example, all surging over the last year.

Vaccine info site: CENSORED

The highly-regarded National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) says it has been de-platformed by Facebook and Instagram, as those working in the interest of the pharmaceutical industry further clamp down on open online access to important medical information.

Rational thinking and freedom of speech about vaccination and public health laws is no longer tolerated online.

Barbara Loe Fisher, National Vaccine Information Center
Though NVIC is neither "pro-" nor "anti-" vaccine, the group is a target because it provides reputable scientific information to parents and medical professionals about vaccine safety concerns, from individual "lots" of vaccines that are recalled by the manufacturer or prove problematic; to peer-reviewed, published studies related to vaccine safety issues.

BORDER CHAOS: Five Charged After Agents Find 97 Migrants Inside a Small Texas ‘Stash House’

At least five people were arrested this week after authorities discovered nearly 100 illegal migrants crammed inside a tiny Houston home.

“The investigation was started after a woman contacted authorities on Friday saying her brother had been kidnapped, the Chronicle reports. The caller reportedly told authorities she had paid smugglers $11,000 in February to bring her brother into the U.S. from Honduras. She was then instructed by the smugglers to bring an additional $6,300 to Houston in exchange for her brother’s release or he would be killed,” reports The Hill.

Judicial Watch: Documents show Iowa officials worked with Big Tech to censor 2020 election posts

Judicial Watch says the conservative watchdog group has hundreds of pages of documents that show Iowa state officials pressured Big Tech companies to remove Judicial Watch's social media posts.

The group said Monday that it had received 624 pages of records from the office of the Secretary of State of Iowa showing that on multiple occasions the Iowa Secretary of State officials contacted Facebook and Twitter to remove Judicial Watch posts.

On February 3, 2020, Kevin Hall, the communications director for the department, wrote to a Facebook official asking the person to help remove a Judicial Watch story, according to a June 2020 open records lawsuit the group filed against Iowa State.
