  1. 3 Governors Order Their Troops Back From DC
    By Samuel Allegri
    January 22, 2021 Updated: January 22, 2021

    Three governors have ordered their local National Guard troops to return to their respective states following accounts of thousands of them having been “banished” to the parking garage of the Capitol.

    Texas Gov. Greg Abbott wrote this morning on Twitter he had “instructed General Norris to order the return of the Texas National Guard to our state.”

    (Richard: Texas, Florida and New Hampshire have ordered their Guard detachments home from DC. How many more will join in the exodus?


    The House of Representatives rushed through the impeachment on 14 January, voting without evidence, testimony, argument, or deliberation to impeach Trump on the single count of incitement to insurrection.
    Impeachment is a political act, however, rather than an act constrained by the tenets of law and evidence. The law may indicate that the miscreants who entered the U.S. Capitol were guilty of the crimes they’re actually being charged with by Justice Department prosecutors, mostly some version of violent or unlawful entry, disorderly conduct, and/or interfering with government business.

    Communist scum are always so predictable,
    Remember Stalin! “Remove the man and the problem goes away.”


    Joe Biden walks up to a doorway with Marines on each side, and if you listen to the video a couple of times, he clearly says, “Salute the Marines.” and then walks through. I told you AOC and all her girlfriends had hidden earpieces in at that press conference, where you could see them all listening, and then break out laughing together at the joke their big head told them. What they were saying was being put in their ear by some big head behind the curtain. I showed you this with that reporter in the van, who was stalking just some random black dude, and pointing his camera where the guy was about to walk, as he said, “You’ll see him now,” for the big head behind the curtain who was eagerly awaiting his latest live video feed of some poor guy trying to live his life in peace. Here we have Joe, again, being told exactly what to do by somebody who had eyes on him live while sitting in a control room somewhere, probably miles away. The only problem is, Joe’s mind is going and he is saying everything that comes into his ear, rather than doing it. I assume people around Joe are holding cell phones, and the video is going to a wall full of TVs being watched by whoever the big head behind the curtain for him is, so they can see exactly what is going on. Maybe Joe even wears live streaming hidden cameras. When Joe answers questions on TV, it is a script written by some shrink, and read into his ear by a guy who is using Joe as a big remote controlled fleshy robot. Joe may not even have any opinions on anything, beyond sniffing women’s hair and groping children. It sounds nuts, but how many cases of this have you seen with your own eyes now? Even young girls like AOC who you would think would be honest socialists and could answer a question extemporaneously, are just rebroadcasting the conspiracy’s narrative word for word, as it is put in their ear by specialists. I am not sure anybody you see in DC is free of the hidden earpiece, and actually speaking their mind when they do an interview. Even stranger, not only are those in the media not telling you about this revelation, I think many of them have their own hidden earpieces. How weird is this timeline?

    • I first contemplated this in 2016, during the Presidential debates, remember Hillary orating a script.
      Pretty sure, Biden is a puppet in more than one way.

      PS wonder what frequencies they use?

      • Same here. Jamming them should be worth watching for the chaos alone not to mention then the attempts to explain it.

    Ivermectin; A Doctor’s Opinion.
    by Hannes Wessels
    With WHO Director General Tedros Ghebreyesus in full flight attacking the ‘rich nations’ for ‘hoarding’ the Corona vaccine for selfish reasons I’m left suspecting this is an opening salvo aimed at the incoming Biden administration to browbeat them into bringing America back into the fold. It seems to have worked because President Biden has announced, as one of his first executive decisions, that the US is going back into the organisation so all those life-saving bureaucrats can give themselves a well earned salary increase. As usual, nothing nasty to be said about the Chinese who have much to answer for, but also not much about ‘Ivermectin’ which, by all accounts, brings hope to the world in a very affordable form but this may not suit certain individuals and corporates like the Gates Foundation who have a different agenda. The WHO lists Ivermectin as an ‘essential medicine’ but not for the treatment of viral diseases, so deemed unsuitable for dealing with Corona. We saw how Chloroquine was furiously denigrated and one wonders if this drug will suffer the same fate?

    I reached out to an old friend and a doctor for whom I have the highest regard for his opinion:

    The worth of this drug cannot be underestimated. I am literally in awe of this stuff. Dr Pierre Kory (watch the video of his heartfelt appeal on the net) has called it a ‘miracle drug’. In my opinion, it is even better than that! As Dr Kory says, if you use Ivermectin early, you will never get severe or fatal Coronavirus disease. SERIOUSLY, HE CAN SAY THAT??? It turns out that he is spot on.

    That it is not already in wide use, the first line go-to treatment for Coronavirus infection, completely confuses, saddens and angers me. In this matter, the medical profession has failed us all miserably. One could only guess at the lives that could have been and could still be saved by using Vitamin C and Ivermectin.

    Ivermectin is cheap as chips, it is 100% effective if given early enough (both as a prophylactic, and a treatment of all phases of Covid-19 disease), and it has very few mild side effects. So there really can be no cogent reason why it is not made immediately available to everyone.

    Safe in humans? I believe so, because since 1975 when it was first discovered by the two Nobel Laureates that were honoured finally in 2015 for developing it, 3.7 billion doses have been given safely and very effectively to mankind! Yes, I wrote 3.7 BILLION. SAFELY. EFFECTIVELY. Its main use in this time has been in the treatment of Filiariasis and River Blindness, and so far its beneficial effect in improving the medical lot of mankind is incalculable. It should have been given ten Nobel prizes for physiology and medicine, in my humble opinion.

    About ten years ago the users of this very effective killer of roundworms and blood sucking insects first noticed its profound worth as a broad-spectrum antiviral, and the work required to repurpose this phenomenal drug, and prove its efficacy, started. The effectiveness of Ivermectin against all RNA viruses is now proven by dozens of trials. As I write, there are many (over 60) ongoing trials measuring Ivermectin’s efficacy against SARS, CoV 2 and preliminary data shows, overwhelmingly, how amazingly effective it is. In ALL of the trials!!! The writer fully intends to use Ivermectin from now on as his first line treatment of viral infections against ALL OF the viruses it has been shown to kill. HIV, Zika, Ebola, Dengue, West Nile, Avian Influenza, Chikungunya, Yellow Fever, Equine and Bovine Herpes, Newcastle, Hendra, Semliki, Sindbis, Venezuelan equine Encepahalitis, Pseudorabies, and the list goes on, and on. Mind blowing stuff.

    Ivermectin does TWO things; both actions are as important as the other. Firstly, it stops the virus from replicating. Viruses are simple structures that must commandeer our cells to multiply. They need to dock onto / attach to a receptor site (in the case of CV19, the ACE-2 receptor) and then they must inject their nuclear material (DNA or in the case of CV19, RNA) into the cell. Then this nucleotide chain literally hijacks the working engine of our cells and repurposes it to produce zillions of killer babies. The cell then breaks, releasing a vast number of new viruses and the exponential explosion cycle of viral rplication continues. Ivermectin stops CV19’s entry into the cell.

    Secondly, and perhaps even more importantly, is Ivermectin’s anti-inflammatory action. Most people do not get it that it is not the virus that kills you, it is your IMMUNE REACTION to the virus that actually pulls that fatal trigger. The much touted ‘cytokine storm’. This immune hyperactivity leads to the clotting, the inflammation, and the organ failure that is finally incompatible with continued life. So Ivermectin’s other genius strategy is to mitigate this inevitable reaction (thought to be made worse by previous vaccinations by the way), and it is these two COMBINED actions that means that it deals with this infection in ways unparalleled by other interventions, and all other drugs. Incidentally, the jury is out on pretty much all of the other drugs we have been reading about – their actions, if any, are minimal, and probably ineffective in any real sense.

    While Ivermectin is an excellent start, there are other cunning plans that can be invoked to seriously diminish the deadly effects of CV19…

    High-dose Vitamin C’s worth as an antiviral is astonishing. The ‘discoverer’ of high dose C in the 1940’s, an intrepid and totally ignored genius called Dr Fred Klenner, cured SIXTY CONSECUTIVE CASES OF POLIO. His work has been totally ignored by all but a few people. Another massive medical tragedy. Think of all of the polio injured people you have met in your life…all would have been treated successfully, and their terrible disability avoided by using high dose Vitamin C. That the use of vitamin C continues to be ignored by the medical profession is, in my view, reprehensible.

    In my experience, if C does not work (and I mean as a standalone management of ANY viral infection here) then this is because the dosage taken is too low, not taken frequently enough and for too short a time. I recommend taking Ascorbic Acid (and the liposomal variety is five times more potent than the common or garden variety) in a dose of 2-4 GRAMS an hour, and I believe this will successfully demolish any viraemia. This dose (which can be up to 200,000 mg daily) should be coninued at least 2 days after complete recovery, as a common mistake is to cease therapy too soon, which leads to the inevitable recurrence of symptoms. My favourite way of using C is to take as much as you must to produce diarrhoea (Vitamin C’s only real side effect, apart from indigestion) – this is called a ‘C flush’, or ‘taking vitamin C to bowel tolerance’ – then continue at a lesser dose that will not have you sitting perpetually upon the throne. Vitamin C will also diminish the few side effects that Ivermectin may cause, usually a headache, tummy gripes or a rash.

    My last little gem for you to use in the management of your CV19 disease, is to inhale nebulized hydrogen peroxide. The other name for singlet oxygen therapy (using H2O2 or O3 / ozone) is BIO-OXIDATION therapy. Take 3% food-grade Hydrogen Peroxide, available at any chemist, and dilute it 1:1 with water and nebulise yourself by inhaling the fine spray for 10 minutes every hour. Also cheap as the proverbial… On Monday night I saved two people from certain death using these three treatments.

    So there you have it. A combination therapy that works every time against the terrifying Coronavirus (and all of the others mentioned above). Fear no more. You are safe, and you will be saved by Ivermectin. Cheap as chips. Minimal side effects. 100% effective when used early in the infection course, or when given as a prevention.

    So WHY THEN would any conscientious and well meaning health authority actively prevent the use of something so affordable, so safe and so effective?

    Currently, the preferred strategy by authorities around the world, for managing this deadly pandemic is to mandate the use of a dodgy, expensive and very contentious vaccine, that has yet to be properly trialled and shown not to be harmful. Actually, recent figures already show TWENTY ONE PER CENT of recipients are reacting badly to it. And that is the short term figure. Because of its unusual and hitherto unique make up, its very nature, most experts fear it will seriously affect our immune systems in the medium and long term.

    Ivermectin’s miraculous actions effectively negate the need for ANY vaccine. Can anyone reading this get their head around the practical impact of this NOW PROVEN assertion? And I’m left asking, what was all the fuss about?

    Not everyone agrees however. Tanya Farber, Senior Science Reporter for TimesLive recently published an article critical of the media hype regarding Ivermectin labelling it ‘irresponsible’ while claiming, “Effective doses of the drug would have to be 100 times those in the studies and would be highly toxic for Covid-19 patients.” She goes on to report that experts at a recently held seminar (details unknown) had given an assurance that the drug would not be authorised in the country until proven to be safe. They warned of side-effects including blindness.

    Addendum: We have been Pauling advocates for years and consume larger than usual doses of Vit C regularly BUT realize that it is pointless to so so unless you consume it with fresh sources of citric acid (fresh orange juice NOT the rubbish sold in shops as such as then the Citric acid is gone and sugar is used to hide the bitterness). Citric acid enhances its absorption (10%to>90% IIRC)which is why citrus fruits are excellent scurvy treatment.

  5. Saudi-Led Coalition Repels Attack Launched by Houthis, Reports Say (sputniknews, Jan 23, 2021)

    “The attack comes just a day after the Saudi-led forces destroyed an explosive-laden boat and a drone launched by Houthis. This comes after former US secretary of state Mike Pompeo, who left the post on 20 January 2021, announced that the State Department would add Yemen’s Houthi movement to its list of terrorist organisations.

    The Saudi-led coalition has intercepted an attack by the Houthi movement that targeted the Saudi capital Riyadh, Al-Hadath TV reported Saturday.

    Social media users have shared videos of fumes of smoke in the sky from an apparent explosion of what local media believe was either a drone or a missile.

    Yemen has been engulfed in a prolonged armed conflict between the government forces, led by President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi, and the Houthi rebels.

    Since March 2015, the Saudi-led Arab alliance, backing Hadi’s forces, has been conducting air, land, and sea operations against the rebels, who control the capital of Sanaa and large areas in northern and western Yemen. The Houthis often use drones with explosives to attack Saudi border area.

    Last week, the US State Department added the Houthi movement to its list of terrorist organisations.”

    “A roadside bomb blast targeting a car belonging to Muhudin Hassan Afrah, a former Somalian lawmaker, killed at least four soldiers in Mogadishu on Saturday, media reported.

    According to Somalian news outlet Garowe Online, Afrah himself was injured in the explosion in the Shibis district of Mogadishu.

    Law enforcement officers arrived at the scene and launched an investigation into the incident.

    No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack but some reports suggest that the explosion was plotted by Al-Shabaab militants.

    Four bodyguards were killed following an IED explosion on a vehicle carrying two former MPs and a traditional elder in Shibis district of central Mogadishu, reports. One of the MPs escaped a similar attack just last month. Al-Shabaab claimed responsibility for the attack…”

  7. Huge fire breaks out at Islamic girls’ school in Bradford sending thick plume of smoke over city (dailymail, Jan 23, 2021)

    “Firefighters descended upon an Islamic girls school in Bradford today after a huge fire sent thick plumes of smoke over the city.

    Six crews from the West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service were dispatched to the school in the Clayton area at 8.16am.

    There were no staff or students inside the building at the time of the fire, according to a local imam.

    The fire is believed to have started at the Jaamiatul Imaam Muhammad Zakaria school, Yorkshire Live reports.

    Yorkshire Ambulance Service’s Hazardous Area Response Team are also in attendance.

    Today dramatic images showed bright orange flames erupting from the roof of the building as fire crews tried to tackle the fire.

    In a statement the West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service said: ‘Crews from Fairweather Green, Odsal, Bradford, Leeds, Stanningley, Illingworth, Shipley & Halifax currently dealing with a building fire at a school on Thornton View Road, Bradford. ‘

    Imam Abu Sulaym tweeted: ‘Jaamia Girls Darul Uloom, Bradford has caught fire. Alahmdulillah, no staff or students inside besides security.

    ‘Pray 2 rakats, make du’a and offer some sadaqah for relief from this museebat.’

    Meanwhile Bradford Council tweeted: ‘@WYFRS are dealing with a fire within one of the buildings at a school on Thornton View Road BD14.

    ‘Take care if you are in the area and allow space for the crews to access the area.’

    A resident told Yorkshire Live: ‘The main part of the school the newer buildings look ok it looks like the main old building which I believe used to be a hospital which was on fire.’

    West Yorkshire Police said: ‘Police were called at 8.43am today (Saturday) to a report of a fire at a school building in Thornton View Road, Clayton.

    ‘Enquiries are ongoing with the fire service into the cause of the blaze.'”

  8. Sweden: Child Rapes Drove Overall Rape Increase in 2020 (breitbart, Jan 23, 2021)

    “Total reported rapes in Sweden increased last year, and the change was driven by a surge in the number of sex attacks against children, according to National Council for Crime Prevention (Brå) statistics.

    According to Brå, the number of reported rapes in which women were victims remained largely the same as in 2019, but the number of child rapes in which the victim was under 18 increased by 16 per cent.

    A total of 3,950 rapes against children were reported in 2020, with investigator Linn Brandelius telling Swedish broadcaster SVT: “When rape against children increases, there are usually large cases that are behind the change, where it may be the same victim and the same perpetrator, but crime has been going on for a long time.”

    However, Brandelius admitted that “this year we have not uncovered a big case, so we do not know what the increase is due to.”

    In total, the statistics show a one per cent rise in total criminality in Sweden in 2020, despite the restrictions put in place to stop the spread of the Chinese coronavirus pandemic. Drug offences saw an increase of ten per cent last year, and vandalism attacks increased by 14 per cent.

    The release of the figures comes just days after several Afghan migrants were accused of filming sex acts with underage girls, some as young at 13, and using the videos to blackmail their victims.

    According to investigators, the Afghans were also sharing the pornographic videos on social media.

    Last year saw several cases of child rape attacks with migrants as the suspected perpetrators in the Scandinavian country, including a case in the municipality of Österåker in which a migrant lured a 12-year-old to an asylum home and raped her.”

  10. China law empowers coast guard to use force amid disputes (abcnews, Jan 23, 2021)

    “China has authorized its coast guard to fire on foreign vessels and destroy structures on features it claims, potentially raising the possibility of clashes with regional maritime rivals.

    The Coast Guard Law passed on Friday empowers the force to “take all necessary measures, including the use of weapons, when national sovereignty, sovereign rights, and jurisdiction are being illegally infringed upon by foreign organizations or individuals at sea.”

    The law also authorizes the coast guard to demolish other countries’ structures built on reefs and islands claimed by China and to seize or order foreign vessels illegally entering China’s territorial waters to leave.

    China’s coast guard is the most powerful force of its kind in the region and is already active in the vicinity of uninhabited East China Sea islands controlled by Japan but claimed by Beijing, as well as in the South China Sea, which China claims virtually in its entirety. Those activities have brought the coast guard into frequent contact with air and sea forces from Japan, its chief ally the U.S., and other claimants to territory in the South China Sea, including Vietnam, Malaysia and the Philippines.

    Both water bodies are considered potential flashpoints and the law’s passage may be a signal that China is preparing to up the stakes over what it considers its key national interests.

    Controlling them is a strategic imperative if China wishes to displace the U.S. as the dominant military power in East Asia, while the resources they contain, including fish stocks and undersea deposits of oil and natural gas, may be key to maintaining China’s continued economic development.”

    All were found guilty for slighting Allah. Nasrin was sentenced to 38 years in prison and 148 lashes. Six of the other women were sent to prison and one woman’s husband said she should be punished with acid, that would be her punishment.

This cannot be brought about by agreeing with the Jahiliyyah and going along a few steps with it from the very beginning, as some of us think we ought to do, for this will simply mean from the very beginning we have accepted defeat.”

    “ No political system or material power should put hindrances in the way of preaching Islam. It should leave every individual free to accept or reject it, and if someone wants to accept it, it should not prevent him or fight against him. if someone does this, then it is the duty of Islam to fight him until either he is killed or until he declares his submission.”

  13. One constitutional stumbling block to Impeachment 2.0
    By LU Staff January 23, 2021

    As J.E. Dyer notes, Democrats have now set a date for the second impeachment trial of Donald Trump. There are countless reasons why they should abandon this ill-advised plan. One is the wedge such a shenanigan is sure to drive into an already bitterly polarized country. Trump supporters’ passions are already inflamed by the belief that the election was stolen and the constant persecution that the former president was forced to endure during his presidency.

    If the election outcome was not determined at least in part by chicanery, then the Left owes the 75,000,000 Americans who voted for Trump a patient point-by-point explanation, if such an endeavor can hold up to scrutiny. Up till now, their reaction to claims of voter fraud has been dismissive, if not downright hostile.

    Another reason is heretofore unconsidered evidence that plans for the attack on the Capitol were in the works days before Trump gave his supposedly inciteful speech. As the Washington Post reported on Jan. 12:

    Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) announced on Friday that the Senate impeachment trial of former President Trump will commence on 8 February.

    The House of Representatives rushed through the impeachment on 14 January, voting without evidence, testimony, argument, or deliberation to impeach Trump on the single count of incitement to insurrection.

    As quoted by CBS News, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said at the time, without evidence: “We know that the president of the United State incited this insurrection, this armed rebellion, against our common country.” No evidence has since been introduced of insurrection or rebellion, armed or otherwise.

  14. Texas Sues Biden Administration Over Deportation Freeze Order
    By Ivan Pentchoukov
    January 22, 2021 Updated: January 23, 2021

    The state of Texas on Friday sued the Biden administration over a memorandum suspending the deportations of illegal aliens.

    “On its first day in office, the Biden Administration cast aside congressionally enacted immigration laws and suspended the removal of illegal aliens whose removal is compelled by those very laws. In doing so, it ignored basic constitutional principles and violated its written pledge to work cooperatively with the State of Texas to address shared immigration enforcement concerns,” the lawsuit (pdf), filed in a federal district court in Texas, states. “This unlawful reversal will cause Texas immediate and irreparable harm if it is not enjoined.”

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) did not respond to a request for comment.

    President Joe Biden’s Acting DHS Secretary David Pekoske issued a memo (pdf) on Jan. 20 “directing an immediate pause on removals of any noncitizen with a final order of removal (except as noted below) for 100 days.” The exceptions to the order include illegal aliens who have either engaged in or are suspected of terrorism or espionage.”

    Attorney Sidney Powell, who filed third-party election lawsuits on behalf of former President Donald Trump, has launched a Super PAC dedicated to a range of aims, including freedom of speech, Constitutional rights, and “the sacred right of free and fair elections.”

    In a statement on Saturday, Powell announced the launch of the Restore the Republic Super PAC, which is an independent expenditure-only political action committee that may receive unlimited contributions and may engage in unlimited political spending on initiatives, provided it does not coordinate directly with campaigns or candidates.

    A Jan. 22 filing with the Federal Elections Commission shows Powell as the entity’s Custodian of Records, while former Trump campaign attorney Jesse Binnall serves as the Super PAC’s Treasurer.

    Powell said what prompted the move is that Americans are “starved for truth, restoration of the Rule of Law, and even-handed accountability,” and are fed up with government corruption and an “elitist political class that views them with condescension and contempt.”

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said during an interview on Thursday night that part of the reason that she did not attend President Joe Biden’s inauguration was because she does not feel safe around Republicans.

    “You knew that people would ask why you weren’t there,” CNN host Chris Cuomo said. “This was a good cause, from your perspective, of dealing with your constituency. But this was supposed to be a show of force, and unity, and you weren’t there. Explain it.”

    “Yeah, you know, I think we also had very real security concerns as well, as you mentioned earlier,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “We still don’t yet feel safe around other Members of Congress and—”

    “How many are ‘We?’” Cuomo pressed.

    • Note how she is demonizing the Republicans so the various thugs will have an easier time attacking them. Dehumanize your opponent to make it easier to hurt them.

  17. ICE Agents Ordered to Free All Illegal Aliens in Custody: ‘Release Them All’ (breitbart, Jan 23, 2021)

    “Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents, tasked with enforcing federal immigration law, are being instructed to free all detainees in their custody, as President Joe Biden’s administration halts deportations.

    An internal January 21 ICE memo, independently reviewed by Breitbart News and first reported by Fox News’s Tucker Carlson, orders agents to “stop all removals,” including land and air deportations.

    In addition, the memo tells agents that “all cases” of detainees in ICE custody are now to be considered “no significant likelihood of removal in foreseeable future” — suggesting all detainees will need to be released.

    “Release them all, immediately,” the ICE official wrote to staff in the memo. Typically, if detainees do not have sponsors in the United States, agents can hold an individual in their custody. The memo, though, states that is no longer the case and that even detainees without sponsors must be released.

    It is unclear if ICE is currently carrying out the mass release of all 14,195 detainees in its custody, 71.45 percent of whom are convicted criminals or have pending criminal charges. These detainees are currently held in approximately 138 facilities across the United States.

    ICE has halted all deportations, regardless of the criminal convictions of an illegal alien, as a result of Biden’s executive order stopping removals for at least 100 days. The initiative is a long-term goal of the open borders lobby, which has sought a permanent end to deportations.

    ICE officials have not responded to a request for comment in time for this publication.”

  18. When Politicians Were Threatened, They Acted. When You Were Threatened, They Turned Away. Why?

    Think back to the spring and summer of 2020. In the aftermath of George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis, Black Lives Matter protests broke out across the country. These morphed into violent riots in multiple cities, which continued for months on end. At every opportunity, the legacy media presented “examples” of police brutality which were often false or misleading, including mischaracterizing the seemingly justified use of force against Rayshard Brooks and Jacob Blake. The result? Further protests, further riots.

    As the violence continued, many Democrats attempted to distance themselves from the events. Others joined the legacy media and subtly or overtly justified the violence. However, there was one common theme visible across the entire Left — it was simply unthinkable that the violence be suppressed.

    BEIJING (Reuters) – China passed a law on Friday that for the first time explicitly allows its coast guard to fire on foreign vessels, a move that could make the contested waters around China more choppy.

    China has maritime sovereignty disputes with Japan in the East China Sea and with several Southeast Asian countries in the South China Sea. It has sent its coast guard to chase away fishing vessels from other countries, sometimes resulting in the sinking of these vessels.

    China’s top legislative body, the National People’s Congress standing committee, passed the Coast Guard Law on Friday, according to state media reports.

  21. Germany Investigates Spy Activity in Europe Linked to Former Iranian Diplomat

    “Germany is conducting extensive investigations to track down Iranian intelligence activity on its soil, revealed documents retrieved from ongoing probes.

    Spy activity connected to Tehran is being traced through ledgers collected from a former Iranian diplomat’s car.

    Asadollah Asadi had worked as a diplomat at the Iranian embassy in Vienna until he was arrested in Bavaria in 2018 for involvement in plotting the attempted bombing of an assembly organized by the National Council of Resistance in Iran (NCRI) outside Paris.

    German authorities had handed him over to Belgium, where his trial is currently taking place in the port city of Antwerp alongside the trial of a Belgian-Iranian couple who were arrested for attempting to stage the attack.

    When Asadi was arrested on July 1, 2018, the German police discovered many documents, including a black ledger in his car, with coded dots, which seem to be instructions on making bombs, a report by German TV’s Channel One said.

    Instructions found in the black ledger are believed to have been intended for the arrested couple, whose verdict is expected to be announced this February.

    The Channel One report said that the couple received hundreds of thousands of euros in the past several years for their cooperation with the Iranian secret service.

    Among other documents discovered in Asadi’s belongings is a green checkered ledger with 200 pages, with receipts that show the diplomat has distributed cash among some individuals in different European countries.

    The green ledger has 289 Latin and Persian notes, which mention tourist attractions, stores, hotels, and restaurants, with times and dates. These spots are believed to have been visited by Asadi.

    German agents have figured out that this information involves around 11 countries including France, Austria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Belgium, Netherlands, and Italy, but there are also 144 notes about locations in Germany.

    One note points to the entrance of the Hamburg Islamic Center, which is under German internal security surveillance. According to German intelligence, the center is used by the Iranian regime to “export revolution” and is known for supporting Lebanese militias.

    When interrogated by German authorities, Asadi defended himself by saying that he was merely a tourist and that the sites found in the green ledger are for touristic spots he used to visit accompanied by his children.

    Asadi, however, had been carrying several receipts that indicate suspicious cash payments. The recipients who have signed the receipts all have very common Iranian names and their identities are still unknown.

    Some have received payments between 2,500-5,000 euros. Another individual has confirmed receiving a laptop. German police speculate that the payments are for espionage.

    Sources at the NCRI have confirmed reported findings to Asharq Al-Awsat.

    “The Iranian Ministry of Intelligence has a network of agents in Europe that are managed with the help of Iranian embassies, and the misuse of diplomatic capabilities,”Javad Dabiran, a spokesman for the Iranian opposition group, told Asharq Al-Awsat

    “Asadi is the head of Iranian intelligence in Europe and used to run a network of spies,” Dabiran confirmed, adding that three agents linked to the ex-diplomat now face trial in Belgium.

    “At least 40% of Asadi’s meetings with his network of agents were held in Germany,” he noted.

    Dabiran warned that there are various Iranian terrorist sleeper cells and spy rings across Europe and that they are handled by Iranian embassies.”

    “At least 11 fighters from Iraq’s state-sponsored Hashd al-Shaabi force were killed in an ambush by the Islamic State (IS) group north of the capital on Saturday, Hashed security sources have said.

    The jihadists used light weapons and the cover of darkness to target the Hashd east of Tikrit, the capital of Iraq’s Salahaddin province, two days after a twin suicide attack claimed by the group had killed 32 people in Baghdad.

  23. Land mine in Somali capital kills at least 5

    “At least five people including soldiers were killed and four others wounded on Saturday when a bomb blast hit a vehicle carrying a former Somali lawmaker in the capital Mogadishu, an official said, Anadolu Agency reports.

    The roadside bomb explosion took place in the Shibis district, Abdifatah Hassan, a police captain in Mogadishu, told Anadolu Agency over the phone.

    He said that former parliamentarian Muhdin Hassan Afrah and several of his bodyguards were wounded in the explosion and were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

    Last month Afrah survived a bomb blast targeting his vehicle in the capital’s Kaaran district, according to local media.

    No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack, but the Somali-based Al-Qaeda-affiliated militant group has claimed responsibility for multiple bombings in the Horn of African country.”

  24. Turkey arrests 72 suspects over migrant smuggling

    “Turkish security forces on Saturday arrested at least 72 suspected human traffickers in operations based in the country’s commercial hub Istanbul, Anadolu Agency reports.

    Police arrested 72 suspects after prosecutors issued arrest warrants for 94 alleged members of a criminal organization which organises illegal border crossings, said the sources, who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media.

    Police carried out simultaneous operations across 12 provinces to capture suspects engaged in migrant smuggling.

    During the operations, at least 1,477 migrants from countries such as Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Iraq and Syria were also held after crossing into the country illegally.

    Security forces continue to search for the remaining 22 suspects.

    The sources added that out of 72 suspects, 13 were remanded in custody, and at least 8 dingy boats were seized as part of the operations.

    Turkey has been a key transit point for migrants aiming to cross into Europe to start new lives, especially those fleeing war and persecution.”

  25. Taliban Indoctrinating ‘Minors’ To Commit Violent Acts: Saleh

    “First Vice President Amrullah Saleh urges all Afghan families not to hand over their children to anyone or any group under the guise of religious education.

    He called on the public on a Facebook post, saying “I urge all families in the country not to give their children to anyone under the guise of religious education”.

    People who pick your children are later brainwashing and preparing them for committing crimes, such as suicide attacks, Saleh added.

    Saleh indicated, that in regions or areas controlled by the Taliban, there is no value to life in total, and the use of minors as suicide bombers are common.

    He claims that the Taliban does not care about the lives of the people and continues minor indoctrination to deadly activities, as they want to please their master (Pakistan).

    Taliban are doing everything to please and keep Pakistan happy.

    Amrullah Saleh, previously also had said that the Taliban gathers and uses young people and minors, who cannot distinguish between good and bad, to carry out major attacks and be involved in insurgency manoeuvres.”

    “A new phase of Turkey’s domestic counter-terrorism operation has been launched in the country’s east, expanding the country’s fight against terrorists, the Interior Ministry said on Saturday.

    Operation Eren-3 is moving forward in the Mt. Agri (English Mt. Ararat) region of the eastern Agri province with 59 operational teams, including over 1,000 personnel from the gendarmerie, police, and village guards.

    On Jan. 11, Turkey launched Operation Eren in the Tendurek region of the eastern Agri and Van provinces to target terrorists there.

    The operation was named after Eren Bulbul, a 15-year-old martyred by the terrorist PKK on Aug. 11, 2017.

    Turkey launched Operations Kapan and Yildirim in 2020 with the aim of eliminating the separatist terrorist PKK and clear the region of terrorists.

    In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK – listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US, and the EU – has been responsible for the deaths of 40,000 people, including women, children and infants.”
