Deep State, Deep Trouble

Revelations from a new book, Peril, by Bob Woodward and Rob Costa, reveal just how deep the spiritual rot in the military goes. In the days after the January 6 protest, General Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, promised, in the event of a war, to give aid and comfort to China. According to the Washington Post, after the Capitol protest, Milley sent secret communiques to the head of the People’s Liberation Army, promising that “If we’re going to attack, I’m going to call you ahead of time. It’s not going to be a surprise.”

In a decent country such a brazen act of collusion with a foreign power by one of the most prominent leaders of the armed forces would be met with immediate and unrelenting backlash. Instead, this betrayer of the Constitution and the principle of civilian leadership of the military is a liberal darling. At the inauguration, Joe Biden thanked Milley for undermining President Trump in the final weeks of his presidency.

San Diego City Council Bans Ghost Guns

San Diego City Council passed an ordinance on Tuesday that bans the sale and possession of “ghost guns” in an attempt to combat the rising gun crime in San Diego.

Ghost guns are privately made firearms that lack serial numbers, making them hard to be traced by law enforcement agencies. Under federal law, it is legal for private individuals to make their own firearms, but a license is required for the manufacture of firearms that are for sale or distribution.

The Eliminate Non-Serialized Untraceable Firearm (ENUF) ordinance was introduced by Councilwoman Marni von Wilpert after a deadly shooting in April in downtown San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter in which a ghost gun was used. San Diego Police Chief David Nisleit told FOX 5 reporters after the shooting that there has been a 169 percent increase in ghost guns from 2020.

The first reading of the ENUF ordinance passed 8-1 in August. At the city council meeting on Tuesday, citizens voiced their opinions regarding the ordinance.

Victor Davis Hanson: The Death Of Science

The scientific method used to govern much of popular American thinking.

In empirical fashion, scientists advised us to examine evidence and data, and then by induction come to rational hypotheses. The enemies of "science" were politics, superstition, bias and deduction.

Yet we are now returning to our version of medieval alchemy and astrology in rejecting a millennium of the scientific method.

Take the superstitions that now surround COVID-19.

We now know from data that a prior case of COVID-19 offers immunity as robust as vaccination. Why, then, are Joe Biden's proposed vaccination mandates ignoring that scientific fact? Dr. Anthony Fauci, when asked, seemed at a loss for words.

Is this yet another of the scientific community's Platonic "noble lies," as when Fauci assured the public last year that there was no need for masks?

He later claimed he had lied so that medical professionals would not run out of needed supplies.

More US Troops & Aircraft Will Deploy To Australia After New 'Counter China' Pact Unveiled

A day after the US, UK, and Australia announced a new military pact to counter China, Australia’s defense minister said more US military aircraft and troops will deploy to the country.

Australian Defence Minister Peter Dutton said Canberra made the comments in Washington after a meeting with Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin. Dutton said the US and Australia agreed to enhance "our force posture cooperation."

"This will include greater air cooperation through rotational deployments of all types of US military aircraft to Australia," he said.

When asked about more US troops deploying to Australia, Dutton said, "So I do have an aspiration to make sure that we can increase the numbers of troops through the rotations."

Here Are The States Receiving Bulk Of Afghan Refugees (With D.C. So Far Taking In Zero)

"I strongly oppose the resettlement of these Afghan nationals in Montana," Republican representative Matt Rosendale said in a Thursday statement after it was revealed Montana is due to resettle 75 Afghan refugees who fled on US evacuation flights in August.

According to recent New York Times estimates, a minimum of 50,000 Afghans are expected to be resettled in the United States over the course of the next month, while some 31,000 have already arrived, many still undergoing DHS processing. Over the next year it's expected this number will reach nearly 100,000 - based on White House estimates of how many the administration hopes to admit to the country.

This would end up being more than all Afghan refugees resettled in the US since the war began in 2001, according to prior State Dept. data.

Our Crisis Of Faith On Constitution Day

Today is Constitution Day.

We’re supposed to be celebrating the day the Constitution was signed and presented to the states for ratification. But, as Jonathan Turley details below, it’s pretty hard to celebrate when the Constitution is under such unprecedented attack...

Not long after the ratification of our Constitution, the great Justice Joseph Story marveled “How easily men satisfy themselves that the Constitution is exactly what they wish it to be.”

The Constitution is designed to be a type of waltz with a three rather than six-step pattern in our tripartite system of government. Many today however treat it more like an interpretative dance, an invitation for expressive individual moves. Indeed, in the last few months, President Joe Biden often seems to be dancing alone. The improvisational element to constitutional interpretation reflects more than mere political opportunism. It reflects a crisis of faith on the Constitution Day.

"This Is Illegal" - Republican Senator Blasts FAA Decision To Ground Drones Filming Texas Bridge Border Chaos

Update (1100ET): Republican South Carolina Sen. John Kennedy said Friday that the FAA's grounding of all drones near that Texas bridge is fulfilling the Biden administration’s goal to hide the “lunacy” of its “open border” policy.

“I believe that the reason that they’re limiting drone usage is because they don’t want the American public to know, and I think this is illegal,” Kennedy told “Fox & Friends.”

“I’m sure that some are people who want to come to America for a better life. That’s fine. I’m proud of that, but that’s why we have a legal immigration system,” Kennedy continued, claiming that many of the migrants trying to enter the U.S. are criminals, child predators, drug dealers and terrorists.

“The idea of saying that anybody who wants to come in can come in is lunacy and the American people don’t support it, which is why I think the Biden administration is preventing the usage of the drones.”

The corporate media narrative that unvaccinated people are filling up the hospitals and dying from COVID is quickly falling apart, perhaps faster than they even expected.

WXYZ TV Channel 7 in Detroit asked their viewers on their Facebook Page last Friday to direct message them if they lost a loved one due to COVID-19 if they refused to get one of the COVID-19 vaccines.

This is a clear indication that they are getting desperate to find these stories, and are having a difficult time finding them.

I don’t know if they got any such stories through direct messaging, but the post on their Facebook Page, as of the time of publication today, had received over 182,000 comments, and they seem to be all comments of those who have lost loved ones after receiving a COVID shot, and comments asking them why they are not covering that story.

I paged through many dozens of the comments, and did not see a single one stating that they lost someone to COVID after refusing a COVID-19 shot.

President Biden and the leaders of Australia and the UK announced a new military agreement on Wednesday aimed at countering China. The pact, known as AUKUS, will focus on the sharing of sensitive military technologies, and the first initiative will focus on getting Australia nuclear-powered submarines.

US officials speaking to CNN described the effort to share nuclear propulsion with another country as an “exceedingly rare step” due to the sensitivity of the technology. “This technology is extremely sensitive. This is, frankly, an exception to our policy in many respects,” one unnamed official said.

From the ‘Iron Wall’ to the ‘Villa in the Jungle’: Palestinians Demolish Israel’s Security Myths

25 years before Israel was established on the ruins of historic Palestine, a Russian Jewish Zionist leader, Ze’ev Jabotinsky, argued that a Jewish state in Palestine could only survive if it exists "behind an iron wall" of defense.

Jabotinsky was speaking figuratively. However, future Zionist leaders, who embraced Jabotinsky’s teachings, eventually turned the principle of the iron wall into a tangible reality. Consequently, Israel and Palestine are now disfigured with endless barricades of walls, made of concrete and iron, which zigzag in and around a land that was meant to represent inclusion, spiritual harmony and co-existence.

Israeli Forces Injure Dozens of Palestinians at Anti-Settlement Protest near Nablus

At least 46 Palestinian protesters sustained injuries today when Israeli occupation forces attacked two anti-settlement protests in the villages of Beita and Beit Dajan, in the occupied West Bank province of Nablus, according to medical sources.

A spokesperson for the Palestinian Red Crescent (PRC) in Nablus said five Palestinian protesters sustained injuries by Israeli rubber-coated rounds during the protest in Beita, while three others were injured due to falling on the ground while being chased by Israeli soldiers in the village. Dozens of protesters also suffered suffocation from tear gas inhalation.

Antiwar Voices Blast Biden Over “Absurd” $500 Million Saudi Military Contract

By Brett Wilkins

Peace and human rights advocates on Friday accused President Joe Biden of breaking his promise to end American support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen after the US State Department approved a potential agreement to provide half a billion dollars worth of support services to the Middle East monarchy known for its pervasive human rights abuses and military atrocities.

In a statement, the State Department said Thursday that the proposed $500 million maintenance support services contract – which will serve the Saudi military’s fleet of AH-64D/E, UH-60L, UH-60M, Schweizer 333, and Bell 406CS helicopters, as well as the new CH-47F Chinook copters it is slated to acquire – “will support US foreign policy and national security objectives by helping to improve the security of a friendly country that continues to be an important force for political stability and economic growth in the Middle East.”...

FDA Panel Overwhelmingly Rejects Biden Plan To Give Booster Shots To Most Who Got Pfizer Vaccine

Sep 18 07:13


Larry Nassar, a sports coach in the US, was raping kids under the guise of 'teaching them' gymnastics. The FBI helped to cover it up and even lie about the reports that the young girls made. The FBI stalled and delayed in doing anything about these crimes, despite knowing about them. The father of one of the young girls who was molested asked the judge for one minute in a cage with the demon that did this to his daughter. When the judged dismissed his request he attempted to restore justice in the court room himself.

Israel denies treatment to Palestinians with brain tumors

May was a horrific month in Gaza. Everyone was traumatized – and in many cases physically harmed – by a major Israeli attack which lasted 11 days.

Israel’s cruelty toward Palestinians continued after a ceasefire came into effect – as the case of Yahya al-Ijla illustrates.

Yahya, 24, was injured in the head and chest during the May offensive.

He had gone to a grocery store near his home in the Shujaiya area of Gaza City. The shop was destroyed in an Israeli airstrike; Yahya was outside it at the time.

Following the offensive, his family sought authorization for travel to a hospital in the occupied West Bank city of Hebron. Yahya needed treatment which was unavailable in Gaza.
