Thought for the day

"When people fear the government, there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is more tyranny. Apologies to Thomas Jefferson!" -- Michael Rivero
"A rocket will never be able to leave Earth's atmosphere." -- New York Times, 1936


The writer and historian Victor Davis Hanson is one of the most serious thinkers of our time. When he says something, people should listen.

Following the raid on Trump’s Florida home, Hanson is saying that the FBI is beyond redemption. That it cannot and should not be saved in its current form.

To hear Hanson saying this should alarm people. He is not the type of man who engages in outrageous talk. He means this, for real.

 Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger warned on Friday that the United States could be 'on the edge of war' with Russia and China, as the Biden administration grapples with its historically low relations with the two autocratic regimes.

The United Nations’ worst-case scenario calculation is that global food prices will rise by an additional 8.5% by 2027.

More expensive fertilizers are contributed to those higher costs, with some fertilizers spiking 300% since September 2020, according to the American Farm Bureau.

“Last year [fertilizer] was around $270 per ton and now it’s over $1,400 per ton,” Meagan Kaiser, of Kaiser Family Farms and farmer-director of the United Soybean Board, told NBC’s “Nightly News with Lester Holt.”

“It’s scary. It turns my stomach a little bit to think about the amount of risk that our family farm is taking right now.”

Farmers are finding themselves forced to pass some of those costs along to customers, resulting in higher grocery prices.

“We have asked to ascertain how mRNA vaccines work since we are dealing exclusively with mRNA vaccines here and investigating whether the enzymes in mRNA vaccines can harm our health.” – Lawyer Nicoletta Morante

For the first time in Italy, a court in Pesaro ruled that the contents of mRNA vaccines must be investigated. The decision comes after a 50-year-old man who has already contracted Covid and does not want to undergo the vaccine to work. However, despite already having Covid, the man was suspended due to his ‘non-compliance’ after refusing to take the jab.

The Pesaro court accepted the request of the man’s lawyer, Nicoletta Morante, who had asked the judge for a lab analysis of Pfizer and Moderna’s Covid “vaccine” contents and its effects on a patient who has recovered from the infection and whether it is harmful in general to people’s health. Furthermore, the lawyer is questioning how the state can apply “informed consent to a case of mandatory vaccination”:

Often it almost seems as if the Western MSM is in the pay of Western intelligence. The run-up to the 2003 Iraq invasion comes to mind when the media subjected us to a steady stream of reports about Saddam Hussein’s Weapons of Mass Destruction.

As it turned out those reports were all entirely baseless, Saddam never had any WMD. But those stories were used to justify an invasion in the face of widespread public opposition. Prompting one to wonder if media bosses and owners were acting on the instructions of Western intelligence?

Something along the lines of – follow such and such reporting policy on Iraq and we’ll give you selected insider info and tip-offs in return.

That’s certainly the impression one gets from the Guardian’s coverage of events in Ukraine right now. For example the Russians took the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in early March but now, the Guardian reports, the Russians are using it as a shield. From which to launch rocket attacks on Ukrainian civilians in nearby Nikopol, safe in the knowledge the Ukrainians will be reluctant to retaliate for fear of damaging the nuclear facility.

Or so the Guardian would have us believe.

Ukrainian soldiers that were captured as prisoners of war by Russia have decided to remain in the territory controlled by Moscow and allied forces, expressing reluctance to continue fighting, Russia’s Ministry of Defense claimed on Saturday.

Ukrainian prisoners of war belonging to the units of the Naval infantry, National Guard, air assault and ground forces chose to stay in the territory controlled by Russia because of their reluctance to fight and fear of being sent to the frontlines again,” the ministry wrote on its Telegram channel.

The Defense Ministry said the Ukrainian POWs do not want to be used as “cannon fodder” and die on the battlefield while “carrying out criminal orders” issued by Kiev.

The Russian military also posted a video of what appears to be an interview with a Ukrainian POW who said he laid down his arms voluntarily and turned himself in to the allied forces.

Zio-Nazi atrocities in Novorossia are the ethnical cleansing / mass genocide of the indigenous people — Russians — on the ancestral Russian land, absolutely identical to the Zio-Nazi atrocities in Palestine which are the ethnical cleansing / mass genocide of the indigenous people — Palestinians — on their ancestral land.

Ashkenazi Khazars (93% of the world “Jewry”) are fake “Jews.” They are the Turks from the Russian great mother, according to their own genetic research. They are not even Semites (half-black-half-white). Khazar-Ashkenazi-pseudo-Jews have nothing to do neither racially nor historically with the authentic, Negroid Jews of the Tanakh / Old Testament of the Tribe of Seth [Set] / Tribe of Judah from the Land of Seth [Set] (Upper Egypt). Their homeland is Turkestan. The land of Palestine and the land of Rus’ (Russia) never belonged to them rightfully. Both in Palestine, and in Russia, they were invaders and slave owners.

A mere 12 days after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's Taiwan trip enraged China and triggered a week of threatening military drills, a new delegation of American lawmakers has touched down on the self-ruled island. 

"The five-member delegation, led by Democratic Sen. Ed Markey of Massachusetts, will meet senior leaders to discuss U.S.-Taiwan relations, regional security, trade, investment and other issues, the American Institute in Taiwan said," The Associated Press reports.

The group's US Air Force plane landed on Sunday evening at Songshan Airport in Taipei for the unannounced trip. The delegation is expected to stay through Monday. It's unclear if this latest Congressional visit was backed by the White House - an important question given the prior Biden administration internal controversy and disagreement over Pelosi's visit. Previously the White House said that Congress members are free to "make their own decisions" regarding Taiwan visits.

The other members of the delegation in addition to Markey include Republican Rep. Aumua Amata Coleman Radewagen, a delegate from American Samoa, and Democratic House members John Garamendi and Alan Lowenthal - both of California, as well as Rep. Don Beyer of Virginia.

Despite last week the Chinese PLA's Eastern Theater Command announcing that it had ended the live fire drills that were a response to Pelosi's visit, Beijing vowed stepped up patrols - and has effectively erased the median line of the Taiwan Strait with frequent ship and aerial breaches. According to Taiwan's defense ministry on Sunday, at least 10 Chinese planes crossed the median line on Sunday, with a dozen more aircraft and ships being spotted in the area.

The Nazi serving as US Attorney General says he is going to get the warrant unsealed that he used as the justification for the aggressive invasion of President Trump’s home by a weaponized and politicized FBI, essentially frame up artists for the corrupt Democrat party.

The question the Nazi attorney general doesn’t answer, and the question the presstitutes studiously avoid asking, is why was the warrant containing the probable cause for the unprecedented invasion of an American president’s home sealed in the first place?

Little doubt the official explanation will be a lie, one that the presstitutes will repeat endlessly in their attempt to turn the lie into truth via repetition, just as they did with “Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction,” “Assad’s use of chemical weapons,” ad infinitum.   

My take on the situation is that there is no probable cause.  Here is a scenario that can unfold. The FBI has carried off some boxes of documents to which they had prior access but no interest.  Once they decide on the nature of Trump’s frame up, they will insert the document that they will use to incriminate Trump into one of the boxes.  Then they will insert into the warrant the “probable cause” that justifies the home invasion.

The COVID-19 pandemic is one of the most manipulated infectious disease events in history, characterized by official lies in an unending stream lead by government bureaucracies, medical associations, medical boards, the media, and international agencies.[3,6,57] We have witnessed a long list of unprecedented intrusions into medical practice, including attacks on medical experts, destruction of medical careers among doctors refusing to participate in killing their patients and a massive regimentation of health care, led by non-qualified individuals with enormous wealth, power and influence.

For the first time in American history a president, governors, mayors, hospital administrators and federal bureaucrats are determining medical treatments based not on accurate scientifically based or even experience based information, but rather to force the acceptance of special forms of care and “prevention”—including remdesivir, use of respirators and ultimately a series of essentially untested messenger RNA vaccines. For the first time in history medical treatment, protocols are not being formulated based on the experience of the physicians treating the largest number of patients successfully, but rather individuals and bureaucracies that have never treated a single patient—including Anthony Fauci, Bill Gates, EcoHealth Alliance, the CDC, WHO, state public health officers and hospital administrators.[23,38]

We like to think that we make progress from a less fair, less just society to one that is more fair and more just. Indeed, our loudest and most powerful political faction flatters itself with the adjective “Progressive.”

But on the evidence of last week’s news we are not progressing but regressing, to something coarser, stupider, and more primitive. The phrase “banana republic” has been given a good airing this week. Yes, that’s where we’re headed. In fact, on this week’s evidence, we’re pretty much there.

The week’s greatest outrage—even more than Merrick Garland’s raid on Mar-A-Lago, because Trump can defend himself—was of course the sentencing on Monday at a federal court in Georgia of the Brunswick Three: Gregory McMichael and his son Travis, and their neighbor William Bryan. The two McMichaels were given life sentences; Bryan, who is 52 years old, was given 35 years.

What federal crimes did they commit? The Brunswick Three, who are all white, allegedly interfered with the civil rights of a black man, Ahmaud Arbery. So judged the court. They were also judged to have attempted to kidnap Arbery; and in the cases of the two McMichaels, to have carried guns during a crime of violence.

Could anyone possibly believe anything they say after they refused to allow Trump’s lawyers to watch the search?

It’s just absurd on that level, without getting into how unprecedented and maniacal it is to raid the family home of the opposition leader over a technicality.

Former US President Donald Trump dismissed on Friday a report that the FBI raided his Mar-a-Lago residence in order to search for classified nuclear weapons documents.

"Nuclear weapons issue is a Hoax, just like Russia, Russia, Russia was a Hoax, two Impeachments were a Hoax, the Muller investigation was a Hoax and much more. Same sleazy people," Trump wrote. He also questioned why the FBI would not allow his lawyers to be present during the agency’s inspection, suggesting that they "planted" evidence.

The Washington Post had reported Thursday that the intention of the raid at Trump’s Florida resort was to recover nuclear weapons documents that the former president illegally removed from the White House.

The Justice Department also requested the same day for a judge to unseal the FBI search warrant in order to refute Republican claims of a political attack. Attorney General Merrick Garland also revealed that he had personally approved the search.

The FBI is dissolving before our eyes into a rogue security service akin to those in Eastern Europe during the Cold War.

Take the FBI’s deliberately asymmetrical application of the law. This week the bureau surprise-raided the home of former President Donald Trump—an historical first.

A massive phalanx of FBI agents swooped into the Trump residence while he was not home, to confiscate his personal property, safe, and records. All of this was over an archival dispute of presidential papers common to many former presidents. Agents swarmed the entire house, including the wardrobe closet of the former first lady.

Note we are less than 90 days out from a midterm election, and this was not just a raid, but a political act.

The Democratic Party is anticipated to suffer historical losses. Trump was on the verge of announcing his 2024 presidential candidacy. In many polls, he remains the Republican front-runner for the nomination—and well ahead of incumbent President Joe Biden in a putative 2024 rematch.

The House of Representatives on Friday voted to pass the $700 billion “Inflation Reduction” Act, which would not reduce inflation, and 158 of the lawmakers voted by proxy.

The 158 lawmakers decided to vote by proxy at a time when there has been controversy surrounding the capability, as the Senate still required its members to vote in person.

House members have been allowed to vote by proxy, which means that one member of the House can cast a vote on behalf of an absent member. This type of voting started in 2020 as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

But, instead of the proxy voting capability in the House ending as the coronavirus pandemic has improved around the country, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has extended it multiple times, citing the “public health emergency.”

A Texas Child Protective Services employee lost her job after allegedly telling a 14-year-old girl to become a prostitute.

Keisha Bazley, a Texas mother of nine who turned to CPS to help with her 14-year-old daughter, told FOX 26 Houston that her child was running away and causing trouble at school, prompting her to call in family services. 

"My daughter told me that the worker had been telling her she should do these things, so she said she decided to video her," Bazley said.


CPS is housing the girl at a hotel, just like dozens of other foster kids in Harris County. 


FOX 26 Houston reporter Randy Wallace spoke with a mother of a child who recorded a CPS employee telling her to become a prostitute.

An unidentified man reportedly set his car on fire by driving into a U.S. Capitol barricade early Sunday morning. He then exited his vehicle and began firing a weapon indiscriminately before shooting himself, police say.

 U.S. Capitol police say officers immediately responded when they heard the sound of gunfire at roughly 4 a.m. There were no reported injuries aside from the driver. 

The man's motive in the incident is unknown. The incident reportedly lasted only a matter of moments, and officers did not have time to return fire before the man turned his weapon on himself.

According to an FBI analysis, Alec Baldwin pulled the trigger of the gun that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and wounded director Joel Souza on the New Mexico set of the movie Rust on October 21, 2021.

ABC news reports that the weapon Baldwin said he thought was a "cold gun," a .45 Colt (.45 Long Colt) caliber F.lli Pietta single-action revolver, "could not have been fired without pulling the trigger, according to an FBI forensic report."

Well, if you call 911 they will tell you to stay on the line. I won't. I have a written plan to follow and I will follow it.

As to 911, “I need police and ambulance at {address}, I am a victim of a crime, I have shot the intruder in self defence. I am {description of me and my clothing}, my gun is secured, the front door is unlocked, I am going to hang up to go provide first aid.”

In crisis after crisis, Western narrative control kicks into overdrive to shift blame, whitewash culprits, or make sure inconvenient lines of questioning are never pursued

Soon after US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s recent descent on Taiwan, the Russian Foreign Ministry’s spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova, called out Nicholas Burns, America’s ambassador to China, for “keeping an embarrassed silence” regarding the “insolent stunt.”

The silence was quite a change from how vocal Burns had been a mere month prior at the World Peace Forum in Beijing, where he demanded that China stop relaying “Russian propaganda” by “accusing NATO of starting” the conflict in Ukraine. He used the opportunity to accuse the Chinese Foreign Ministry’s spokesperson of “telling lies about American bioweapons labs, which do not exist in Ukraine.”

But that was then and this is now in the West’s ‘rules-based order’, where each occasion requires a new set of rules. Thus, it goes without saying that, for the time being, Burns will also keep an ‘embarrassed silence’ about another potentially tectonic event – the latest, even more damning statement regarding alleged US-run biolabs in Ukraine made by the Russian Defense Ministry on August 4. Lieutenant-General Igor Kirillov, the head of the Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Protection Troops of the Russian Armed Forces, said Moscow was assessing the possibility of US involvement in the Covid-19 pandemic, as well as investigating US-funded research of various other pathogens.
