    Since the Great Financial Crisis (2008/9) Canadians have incurred much more debt, exposing many to possible insolvency. The Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corp. ensures the main charter banks will enjoy socialized (bail-outs & bail-ins) should there be a wave of defaults.

  4. What To Do When the Director of National Intelligence Is Not So Intelligent?

    am not suggesting that Avril Haines, Joe Biden’s Director of National Intelligence, is stupid. But I do believe, based on her performance at the Reagan National Defense Forum at the Reagan Library, that she is not the brightest bulb in the tanning bed. If she is telling Biden the nonsense that she was dishing to Andrea Mitchell, and Biden is believing it, then the Biden Administration and the American people are in for a rude awakening in the coming weeks.

    Here is the video of some of her remarks:

    What a maroon! Let’s start with this headline from the NY Post based on Avril’s delusional comments — Ukraine may have brighter future as Russia struggles to resupply fighting forces. What?!! Apparently Ms. Haines is so busy reading “intelligence” reports that she is unaware that it is Ukraine, not Russia, begging for more weapons and ammunition and most NATO countries are pleading poverty, with no more to send:

    France has unofficially admitted that it is unable to provide Ukraine with more weapons due to dwindling stocks, but promised to continue helping Kiev in other ways, Politico has reported, citing an anonymous source.

    After two power substations in North Carolina came under gunfire on Saturday, tens of thousands of customers are without power. Outages are expected to last until Thursday, according to Duke Energy.

    The twin attacks took place shortly after 7pm Saturday in Moore County, a rural area about 90 miles east of Charlotte. The area is popular among retirees and is home to the golf mecca of Pinehurst.

    As temperatures were expected to dip to 30 degrees, more than 35,000 customers were still without power late Sunday night, according to poweroutage.us. That’s 56% of the county’s customers. Meanwhile, a Southern Pines town manager told the News & Observer that the outage has already caused several accidents, including a four-vehicle collision that sent four to a hospital with minor injuries.

    • When the HPV vaccines first came out, I sounded the alarm bell on the coming wave of cervical cancer the HPV vaccine is meant to combat.

      Basic science: the HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) is cleared from the system relatively easily and quickly, but some women have a harder time clearing it and it stays in their system for months. Because the HPV was not cleared easily by the ‘generalist’ immune cells that clear viruses quickly, their bodies had to develop specialized antibodies to clear the virus – the kind becomes specialized in that virus and retains ‘memory’ of it so that it can reproduce rapidly should that virus attack again.

      Cervical cancer does not occur for years, perhaps decades…long after the virus had been cleared and eradicated. But it occurs in women who had a hard time clearing the virus and therefore developed these specialized antibodies against it – which then hangs out in their system for decades, perhaps a lifetime.

      So, if the virus is long gone, decades post infection, what is still present in these women’s systems when they develop cervical cancer? The specialized anti-HPV antibodies.

      Solution: let’s vaccinate every female (and some males, so they do not infect future partners) and get them to develop this very same specialized HPV antibody. No problem down the road…plus pharma makes money vaccinating every female!

      I would not be surprised if the HPV vaccine rollout was not a dry run to see how easily we could be tricked into the Vaxx

    The potential of a recession is not the problem, a deep inflationary depression should be a far greater concern. Higher interest rates combined with a tightening money supply, rising energy prices, the threat of war, and de-globalization create a toxic brew. Many of us argue we are already in a strong downturn and the statistics and data simply haven’t caught up to where there reflect this.

    An important story developed this weekend, unspooling in real time on Twitter over a Friday evening. Basically, billionaire Elon Musk gave a good friend of mine — the journalist Matt Taibbi — extensive access to Twitter’s internal e-mails and communications, and told Taibbi he could start sharing.

    What ensued was an epic takedown of Twitter, delivered on Twitter, in what was ultimately a 41-Tweet thread. It was parceled out as fast as Taibbi could post, side by side with readers commenting in real time — offering responses ranging from “wow!” to “this is garbage”, claims that history was being made before our eyes countered by

    • DAILY MAIL – REVEALED: FBI warned Twitter about a ‘hack-and-leak’ operation targeting Hunter Biden in weekly 2020 meetings before the laptop story was censored

      Twitter’s ex-head of trust and safety confirmed in a newly-resurfaced December 2020 statement that they believed there would be a leak involving Hunter Biden

      The Republican AGs of Louisiana and Missouri are investigating the federal government for alleged ‘collusion’ with social media companies

      They reportedly heard from FBI agent Elvis Chan that bureau officials had increasingly frequent meetings with Big Tech about ‘misinformation’

      Mark Zuckerberg’s admission that Facebook censored a story about Hunter Biden’s laptop in an effort to heed warnings from the FBI helped spur the probe

      Elon Musk promised a bombshell exposé he dubbed the ‘Twitter files’ that was aimed at shedding light on its suppression on Twitter

      —————————————————-
      A former Twitter executive said the company was warned about foreign attempts to meddle in the 2020 election using a so-called ‘hack-and-leak’ strategy, it was reported on Sunday night.

      The revelation was made by Twitter’s former Global Head of Trust and Safety, Yoel Roth, weeks after the 2020 election – and roughly two months after the site limited the reach of a New York Post story about Hunter Biden’s laptop.

      ‘I was told in these meetings that the intelligence community expected that individuals associated with political campaigns would be subject to hacking attacks and that material obtained through those hacking attacks would likely be disseminated over social media platforms, including Twitter,’ Roth said according to the Post.

      Roth reportedly handed the statement on December 21, 2020 to the Federal Election Commission.

      ‘I also learned in these meetings that there were rumors that a hack-and-leak operation would involve Hunter Biden,’ it read.

      It comes amid fallout from the Elon Musk-promoted Twitter ‘exposé’ that was apparently meant to show proof that the platform (—) worked in tandem with Democrats to tip the scales in the 2020 election.

      It was centered around correspondences mainly between top employees at Twitter about the site’s suppression of the infamous Post story published in October 2020.

      The published emails show Twitter employees going back and forth trying to justify their censorship of the story under the site’s hacked materials rules. It appears that many top officials at the platform were hesitant about whether Hunter Biden’s laptop was accessed through unscrupulous means.

      Journalist Matt Taibbi, who published the report, also provides screenshots showing Twitter employees complying with requests from the Biden campaign to take down certain links – a practice followed by both campaigns at the time.

      At no point does it show the Democrat’s operatives asking for the Post story’s removal. Links sent by the Biden team allegedly included naked photos of Hunter Biden that would have been posted without his consent.

      While Musk floated suggestions that Democrats could have aided in violating the First Amendment, in his reporting Taibbi points out that the Trump administration – in power at the time – made the same asks of Twitter.

      Roth’s statement to the FEC was reportedly a response to right-wing group Tea Party Patriots, who complained that censorship of the laptop story equated to a campaign contribution to President Joe Biden.

      But the censorship allegations don’t end with Twitter. A lawsuit by two Republican attorneys general accuses the federal government of working together with Big Tech to limit unfavorable media coverage.

      In a deposition related to the case last week, FBI agent Elvis Chan reportedly admitted the bureau met with top social media companies on a weekly basis, according to Fox News.

      The GOP Attorneys General of Missouri and Louisiana are accusing White House officials of colluding with social media giants on removing unfavorable coverage ‘under the guise of combating misinformation.’

      Meanwhile as Donald Trump and many of his allies cried foul in response to the so-called ‘Twitter files,’ others in his camp surprisingly shrugged it off.

      ‘So far I’m deeply underwhelmed. We know the Dems in DC collude with the Dems in Palo Alto,’ former Trump administration official Sebastian Gorka wrote on Twitter.

      ‘Big Whop. Need a paper trail of felonies. Elon better have that.’

      It is no exaggeration to say that Elon Musk’s annexation of Twitter is the most terrifying development in recent history.

      Only a fascist would seek to impose free speech on humanity.

      This is why there has been such a chorus of execration from left-wing commentators, celebrities and influencers. On the day that Musk seized control of Twitter, Washington Post columnist Taylor Lorenz noted that it was “like the gates of hell opened on this site tonight”. Charlie Warzel in The Atlantic wrote that there was “an apocalyptic feel to the ordeal”.

    • BREITBART – New York Times Falsely Claims Hunter Biden Laptop ‘Stolen’

      The New York Times falsely claimed Sunday that Hunter Biden’s laptop was “stolen,” when in fact it was abandoned at the computer repair shop to which he had taken it and which had tried to contact him.

      As Breitbart News and others have reported for years, citing repair store owner John Paul Mac Isaac, “Hunter Biden dropped the computer off at his shop on April 12, 2019, to conduct a ‘data recovery.’ He says he called Biden the next day to inform him the recovery was completed, but Hunter never picked it up.”

      The laptop was never “stolen.” It was abandoned, and the store took legal possession of it, in accordance with documents that Hunter Biden signed himself when dropping off the laptop for repairs. He never reported it stolen or missing.

      However, the Times‘ Michael M. Grynbaum, reporting on last Friday’s report by Matt Taibbi about the internal deliberations at Twitter (now owned by Elon Musk) that led to news about the laptop being censored in October 2020, wrote:

      Mr. Musk and Mr. Taibbi framed the exchanges as evidence of rank censorship and pernicious influence by liberals. Many others — even some ardent Twitter critics — were less impressed, saying the exchanges merely showed a group of executives earnestly debating how to deal with an unconfirmed news report that was based on information from a stolen laptop.

      Readers picked up on the false claim:

      https://twitter.com/derekahunter/status/1599761358584950785

      The discussion at Twitter had nothing to do with the laptop being “stolen,” but rather the unfounded claim that the materials on the laptop had been “hacked,” which was used as a pretext for censoring the story.

      In 2018 and 2020, Breitbart senior contributor and Government Accountability Institute President Peter Schweizer published Secret Empires and Profiles in Corruption. Each book hit #1 on the New York Times bestseller list and exposed how Hunter Biden and Joe Biden flew aboard Air Force Two in 2013 to China before Hunter’s firm inked a $1.5 billion deal with a subsidiary of the Chinese government’s Bank of China just 10 days after the trip. Schweizer’s work also uncovered the Biden family’s other vast and lucrative foreign deals and cronyism.

      Breitbart political editor Emma-Jo Morris’s investigative work on the Hunter Biden “laptop from hell” also captured international headlines when she, along with Miranda Devine, revealed Joe Biden was intimately involved in Hunter’s businesses, appearing to even have a 10% stake in a company the scion formed with officials at the highest levels of the Chinese Communist Party.

    This is not 1990s Harvard, when the “student body was said to be nearly a quarter Jewish” and those students were warmly welcomed. A mere 5.3% of Harvard’s class of 2023 identifies as Jewish, along with 5.2% of the class of 2024 and 7.4% of the class of 2025.

  10. Brazil Military Kills “Red Command” Cartel Leaders, Prepares Take Over
    By Richard Abelson

    Gateway Pundit and Matt Tyrmand on War Room were the first worldwide to report that the Brazilian military is moblizing under its constitutional authority to protect democracy. Sources on the ground now confirm that the Army is mobilizing and has eliminated key leaders of the Communist-allied drug cartels in Rio.

    In an unusual step for the military, the Army has invaded favelas of Rio de Janeiro and killed top leaders of the Comando Vermelho (Red Command) drug cartel, which supports the Communist criminal Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva. Observers take this to indicate the beginning of a federal military intervention. The drug gangs were the only ones to celebrate the alleged election victory by criminal Lula Oct. 30, firing automatic weapons in the air in the favelas. President Bolsonaro cracked down hard on the Brazilian drug gangs.

    The heads of drug trafficking of Morro do Juramento and Juramentinho, identified as Rodrigo Barbosa Marinho, known as Rolinha or Titio Rolinha, and Hevelton Nascimento Júnior, the “Bad Boy”, respectively, were killed during a Military Police operation in Vicente de Carvalho on Thursday (1st). Three other suspects died in the action and one, who was also injured, is imprisoned in custody in the hospital” O Dia reports.

    The drug cartels are the armed wing of the Communists. Comando Vermelho controls parts of Rio de Janeiro and was formed 1979 as an alliance between cartels and Communists. If they are eliminated, the risk 0f a civil war will be significantly reduced.

    Hundreds of thousands of Brazilians were protesting again on the weekend, standing outside army bases and pleading for the miltary to save their country from the Communists and cartels.

    The corrupt Superior Electoral Court moved up the date to certifiy the stolen elections from Dec. 19 to 2 p.m. on Monday, December 12. Observers believe the pro-Communist Court wants to move quickly to install their candidate Lula da Silva, possibly even moving up the certification of the steal to this week. The inauguration is scheduled for January 1, 2023.

    This put pressure on the Military High command to act before it’s too late. Speaking to Steve Bannon, Brazil observer Matt Tyrmand pointed out the pro-Bolsonaro Military would be in danger of being purged if the corrupt criminal Lula takes power. “It’s off to the Gulags then”, Tyrmand noted.

    The Military Deputy Prosecutor General, Carlos Frederico de Oliveira Pereira, sent a letter to the Military Prosecutor General, Antonio Pereira Duarte Nov. 25, noting the “failure to comply with the steps requested by the Ministry of Defense when inspecting the electronic voting system.” The letter also complained of “possible interference of foreign companies in the electoral process, which could not be verified since the military of the aforementioned team does not have broad access to information related to the electoral process, unlike these Big Tech companies, which maintain a partnership with the Electoral Court. There should be an investigation into a possible crime against the country’s external security regarding a possible cyber attack”, the letter states.

    The official declaration of Article 142, which allows the military to intervene in the case of a conflict between the branches of government, is expected this week. Soldiers were seen joining the protestors and instructing them to remain calm when action comes. Drivers cheered military convoys deploying to strategic locations throughout the country.

    Troops have been deployed to the Venezuelan border to guard against Communist invasion:

    Speaking before the Brazilian Senate, retired Regional Election Magistrate Sebastião Coelho again called for the arrest of corrupt Chief Justice Alexandre de Moraes, who has been carrying water for the Communist takeover:

    Coelho stated that he had retired from his bench Aug. 19 in protest against Moraes, who is “waging war against his country. But I believe the Brazilian people will win.” Moraes is “committing crimes”, Coelho said. “Every illegal decision he makes is a crime.” Moraes had given Coelho 3 days to retract his call to arrest the Chief Justice, he said, “but I am reaffirming that call!” Coelho said to standing ovations.

    The Brazilian people are the victims of a coup by the Supreme Court”, Coelho said. “Therefore, the President must invoke Article 142 of the Constitution to enable the Armed Forces to act. This will be portrayed as a coup, but it is actually a counter-coup.”

    Brazilian Indios are also protesting the fraud, since there were allegedly zero votes from the indigenous territories for Bolsonaro. “Everybody already knows the elections were stolen”, said Chief Roni before the Senate on 11/30. “What are we waiting for?” Brazilian Indios support Bolsonaro because racist, neo-colonial Western “Climate Activists” are trying to take away their livelihoods and make them live in poverty again.

    • Keep COVID military vaccine mandate, defense chief says

      ABOARD A U.S. MILITARY AIRCRAFT (AP) — Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said he wants to keep the military’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate in place to protect the health of the troops, as Republican governors and lawmakers press to rescind it.

      This past week more than 20 Republican governors sent a letter to President Joe Biden asking that the administration remove the mandate, saying it has hurt the U.S. National Guard’s ability to recruit troops. Those troops are activated by governors to respond to natural disasters or unrest.

      Congress may consider legislation this coming week to end the mandate as a requirement to gather enough support to pass this years’ defense budget, which is already two months late.

      Austin said he would not comment on pressure from the Hill.

      “We lost a million people to this virus,” Austin told reporters traveling with him Saturday. “A million people died in the United States of America. We lost hundreds in DOD. So this mandate has kept people healthy.”

      “I’m the guy” who ordered the military to require the vaccine, Austin added. “I support continuation of vaccinating the troops.”

      Last year Austin directed that all troops get the vaccine or face potential expulsion from the military; thousands of active duty forces have been discharged since then for their refusal to get the shots.

    The corrupt actors leading today’s far-left Democrat party are at it again. The Gateway Pundit uncovered their playbook on how they are going to target and destroy the GOP Congress starting in 2023.

    The Democrat party has been taken over by corrupt individuals who use criminal techniques to target and destroy their competition on the right. It’s been easy for them since the leaders of the GOP either don’t seem to care or don’t fully grasp the destruction of America caused by these far-left fascist communist groups and their weak opposition.

    2017 after President Trump ran away with the 2016 Election the far-left was outraged and ready to do anything to stop Trump. The Gateway Pundit reported on their leaked report where they planned out how they were going to destroy the most effective conservative-leaning websites on social media.

    A year or so later we revisited their efforts and were amazed at how successful they were in shutting down or severely censoring their conservative opposition on the social media platforms.

  15. WATCH LIVE: Lawless Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs To Certify Her Own Election Fraud At 10 AM

    Corrupt Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs is slated to certify her own corruption this morning when she signs off on the rigged 2022 midterm election that she supervised as Secretary of State.

    Katie Hobbs refused to debate, did not campaign, and had almost no following. No reasonable person would believe that she actually won this race. She ran against Kari Lake, one of the most popular Republican candidates in a generation.

    The election was an uncertifiable disaster on Election Day in Maricopa County when voting machines and printers suddenly stopped working at over 30% of voting centers the moment the polls opened. Republican voters were forced to wait in extremely long lines, turned away from the polls, or told to deposit their ballots in the questionable “box 3” for misread ballots.

    Maricopa County holds roughly 60% of Arizona’s voters, leaving other counties disenfranchised by a single county.

    These issues were present ALL DAY at some locations.

    It is unclear if the “errors” on election day were truly by accident or if the machines were hacked or programmed to do this. What a coincidence, though!

    The Gateway Pundit reported that Despite Only 17% Democrat Turnout on Election Day, Katie Hobbs and the Democrats outperformed Republican candidates in Maricopa and other counties, which is unlikely and impossible!

    Republicans also outnumbered the Democrats in voter registration numbers by OVER 166,000 registrants.

    Trump-Endorsed Kari Lake recently vowed that she “will not quit” and stated that she is “working with a team of patriotic, talented lawyers on a legal case to challenge the botched elections.”

    Because of this, a corrupt Obama-appointed District Court Judge recently sanctioned Kari Lake, citing a recent lawsuit to ban machines and prevent the exact same issues that occurred on election day. The judge even admitted that these sanctions were simply meant to “send a message,” ostensibly to prevent election lawsuits from exposing the massive amounts of fraud. “this reads like an angry Obama appointee who wants to send a message,” said Kari Lake.

    Katie Hobbs recently sued Cochise County for declining to certify the fraud in this election. Cochise later voted to certify under threat of criminal action.

    Additionally, It was revealed last Monday by a Yavapai County Supervisor that Arizona county officials were threatened with Class 6 FELONY CHARGES if they refused to certify the fraudulent election. “I found out today that I have no choice but to vote “Aye” or I will be arrested and charged with a felony,” Supervisor Ron Gould said during the Board of Supervisors Special Meeting on Monday.

    It is rumored that the Cochise County Board of Supervisors, who certified under duress, will rescind their votes to approve this corrupt election. The Gateway Pundit will provide updates on this possible action.

    From the Arizona Secretary of State’s website:

    Statewide Canvass
    The Statewide Canvass of the General Election will be on Monday, December 5, 2022 at 10:00am via Livestream.

    Join via Zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89705786466

    View on Facebook Live: https://www.facebook.com/SecretaryHobbs

    The signed documents will be posted here within the next few days after the Canvass is complete.

    The Hill reported,
    Under state law, election officials conduct recounts of races in which the vote difference between candidates is less than 0.5 percent following the state canvass.

    Sophia Solis, a spokeswoman for Hobbs’s office, said that means Monday’s meeting will spark recounts for the contests for attorney general, state superintendent and a state legislative seat near Phoenix.

    In the attorney general’s race, Hamadeh, the Republican candidate, trails Democrat Kris Mayes by just 510 votes out of more than 2.5 million ballots cast — a margin of just 0.02 percent.

    That razor-thin margin would have gone to an automatic recount in years past as well, but a new law passed by the state legislature earlier this year increased the threshold from 0.1 percent to 0.5 percent

    That will cause Republican Tom Horne and Democrat Kathy Hoffman’s race for state superintendent to also go to a recount. Horne currently leads Hoffman by 0.36 percentage points, or about 9,000 raw votes.

    Kari Lake, Abe Hamadeh, and other Republican candidates in Arizona are expected to file election lawsuits this week following the official certification by crooked Katie Hobbs.

    Join the statewide canvass via zoom here.

  16. FBI Covertly Surveiled Rudy Giuliani for Years While Ignoring Hunter’s Laptop – Now Ignores $24 Million in Donations to Sen. Warnock in GA from Unemployed “Campaign Finance Mules”

    We can’t ask “Where is the FBI?” because we know the answer. The FBI simply does not give a damn about crimes being perpetrated by their political colleagues in the Democrat Party.

    The US has been taken over by a communist gang of zealots who will commit any crimes to obtain and keep power. We call them Democrats but they are nothing like a political party. The Democrats are now more like the fascists taking over a country than politicians trying to win over the people.

    The Democrats and their RINO friends know they can’t win over the American people with their anti-American BS so they have resorted to theft.

    They steal Americans’ votes. They steal Americans’ income with massive inflation-bearing policies and high taxes. They steal babies’ lives. They do anything they can for power.

    We reported today on how the Democrat-controlled FBI spied on President Trump’s attorney and American hero Rudy Giuliani after one month of him representing the President (an obvious crime). But at the same time, this gang ignored Hunter Biden’s laptop with buckets of crimes and evidence of blackmail dripping from its files, videos, and pictures.

  17. How Corrupt is a Corrupt Media?
    The media has ceased to exist, and the public plods on by assuming as true whatever the media suppresses and as false whatever the media covers.

    The current “media”—loosely defined as the old major newspapers like the New York Times and Washington Post, the network news channels, MSNBC and CNN, PBS and NPR, the online news aggregators like Google, Apple, and Yahoo, and the social media giants like the old Twitter and Facebook—are corrupt.

    They have adopted in their news coverage a utilitarian view that noble progressive ends justify almost any unethical means to obtain them. The media is unapologetically fused with the Democratic Party, the bicoastal liberal elite, and the progressive agenda.

    The result is that the public cannot trust that the news it hears or reads is either accurate or true. The news as presented by these outlets has been carefully filtered to suppress narratives deemed inconvenient or antithetical to the political objectives of these entities, while inflating themes deemed useful.

    This bias now accompanies increasing (and increasingly obvious) journalistic incompetence. Lax standards reflect weaponized journalism schools and woke ideology that short prior basic requisites of writing and ethical protocols of quoting and sourcing. In sum, a corrupt media that is ignorant, arrogant, and ideological explains why few now trust

  18. Not Funny”, “Dangerous”: Former Twitter Censor Justifies Banning Babylon Bee

    Authored by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit News,

    Former Twitter censor Yoel Roth justified the site in its pre-Elon Musk incarnation banning satirical website The Babylon Bee, asserting that its content was “not funny” and “dangerous.”

    Twitter’s former head of trust and safety made the remarks during an appearance on a Knight Foundation panel.

    The Babylon Bee was suspended, or more accurately locked out of their account, for “misgendering” Assistant Secretary of Health Rachel Levine, a biological male who now identifies as a woman.

    Their crime was to bestow upon Levine a “man of the year” award.

  19. FBI Warned Twitter Of ‘Hack-And-Leak’ Operation Before Hunter Biden Story Censored
    Tyler Durden’s Photo

    MONDAY, DEC 05, 2022 – 09:34 AM
    Facebook wasn’t the only company that received a tap on the shoulder from the FBI shortly before the New York Post’s Hunter Biden laptop bombshell.

    According to a declaration filed with the Federal Elections Commission (FEC) in December 2020, the FBI and several other agencies warned Twitter’s former head of Site Integrity, Yoel Roth, that “state actors” may attempt to leak hacked materials shortly before the 2020 election in an effort to influence the results.

    According to Roth, the conversation happened during weekly meetings with the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI.

    “These expectations of hack-and-leak operations were discussed throughout 2020. I also learned in these meetings that there were rumors that a hack-and-leak operation would involve Hunter Biden,” Roth claimed in the declaration.

    As the Daily Caller notes, it’s unclear when the discussion between Roth and the intelligence agencies occurred – but on Oct. 14, 2020 Twitter prohibited the story from being shared under the platform’s former “hacked materials” policy.

    As we knew from the beginning based on the Post’s original reporting, the answer is much less nefarious; Hunter Biden, a crackhead, abandoned his laptop at a Wilmington, Delaware repair shop on April 12, 2019. The owner, John Paul Mac Isaac, walked into the Albuquerque FBI office, where he explained what he had, but was rebuffed by agents. He was told basically, get lost. This was mid-September 2019.

  20. Airbases Deep Inside Russia Rocked By Explosions; New Wave Of Airstrikes Pummel Ukraine

    BY TYLER DURDEN
    MONDAY, DEC 05, 2022 – 08:45 AM
    Monday saw another major escalation in the Ukraine war as Russian media reported that explosions rocked two air bases in Russia, suggesting Ukrainian forces could be seeking to launch missiles deep into Russian territory, though the exact cause or type of weapon behind the explosions are unknown. It could also possibly be another “sabotage attack” such that was previously seen in the Crimea.

    One of the Russian bases struck reportedly hosts nuclear-capable strategic bombers being utilized in airstrikes on Ukrainian energy infrastructure. The Associated Press details in the aftermath of the blasts, “Russian state RIA Novosti news agency said three servicemen were killed and six others injured, and a plane was damaged, early Monday when a fuel truck exploded at an air base in Ryazan, in western Russia.” 600 kilometers east of Ukraine

    The report underscored that “The base houses long-range flight tankers that serve to refuel bombers in the air.” The other base that was hit is being identified as in the Saratov region. The Saratov base lies some 600 kilometers east of Ukraine, so both the bases are relatively deep inside Russian territory.

    Moscow meanwhile has taken quick, decisive action – once again launching a barrage of major airstrikes on Ukrainian cities, targeting particularly energy infrastructure as part of the stated purpose of degrading Ukraine’s power supply going into winter. For days Ukrainian officials have been warning the population to brace for new major attacks.

    Air raid alert sirens sounded Monday across the country. “The enemy is again attacking the territory of Ukraine with missiles!” Kyrylo Tymoshenko, an official with the Ukrainian president’s office, wrote on Telegram.

    According to more from the AP:

    Media reports referred to explosions in several parts of the country, including the cities of Odesa, Cherkasy and Kryvyi Rih. In Odesa, the local water supply company said a missile strike cut power to pumping stations, leaving the entire city without water.

    Civilians are sheltering in underground places like metro stations, especially in the populous Ukrainian capital…

    Ukraine has so far counted a handful of deaths from Monday’s fresh round of Russian strikes. It’s expected that power and water access in many parts will be impacted more severely given most estimates have already put the national energy grid at 40% disabled.

    Zelenskyy’s office said three rocket strikes hit the president’s hometown of Kryvyi Rih in south-central Ukraine, killing a factory worker and injuring three others,” the AP continues. “In the northeastern region of Kharkiv, a person was killed in strikes by S-300 missiles on civilian infrastructure in the town of Kupyansk, it said.”

    The two Russian airbases rocked by explosions on Monday were deep inside the country, suggesting the possibility of either a long-range Ukrainian strikes or also a sabotage operation on the ground…

    And further there are emerging reports that a downed rocket has been found just long the border with Moldova, suggesting like the last wave of attacks Russia is targeting ever further West in Ukraine. Likely as a result Ukraine forces will try to continue hitting targets inside Russia, also as their capability grows given they have been supplied with ever-longer range rockets from the US and NATO countries.

    • Explosion at Nuclear Airbase Just 150 Miles From Moscow Opens Stunning New Phase of War
      December 5, 2022

      Two explosions at major Russian military bases, including the Dyagilevo base near Ryazan just 150 miles from Moscow, mean the war in Ukraine has come right to Vladimir Putin’s doorstep.

      The explosions—which may have been missile or drone strikes but that has yet to be confirmed—suggest that whoever is behind them wanted to strike fear right in the heart of Russia.

      The second explosion struck the Engels-2 base, from which Tu-95 bombers have been pummeling Ukraine’s infrastructure over the last month.

      A fuel truck explosion at the base near Ryazan killed at least three and wounded half a dozen and reportedly damaged Tu-95 bombers and Tu-22M long-range missile bombers, which have nuclear capability.

      Video posted on social media suggests that the telltale whistle of a fighter jet or missile can be heard just before the Saratov base explosion, according to the Guardian.

      Monday afternoon, several people in Crimea reported hearing explosions there, suggesting a coordinated effort.

      Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov confirmed that Putin had been advised of the “situation” but did not speculate on who might be behind it, saying quite unbelievably that he had only “read about it” in the media, according to reporters at a briefing Monday.

    • WASHINGTON—The U.S. secretly modified the advanced Himars rocket launchers it gave Ukraine so they can’t be used to fire long-range missiles into Russia, U.S. officials said, a precaution the Biden administration says is necessary to reduce the risk of a wider war with Moscow.

      The U.S. since June has supplied Ukrainian forces with 20 High Mobility Artillery Rocket System launchers, or Himars, and a large inventory of satellite-guided rockets with a range of almost 50 miles. Those rockets, known as the Guided Multiple Launch Rocket System, or GMLRS, have been used to strike Russian ammunition depots, logistics supplies and command centers on Ukrainian territory.

    Military Horses Are Mysteriously Dying

    A total of four US military horses in the Army’s Old Guard, have mysteriously died since February of this year.

    The string of deaths of horses belonging to the Army’s 3rd regiment, commonly known as the Army’s Old Guard, has now garnered an internal investigation regarding the horses’ death.

    Per the Military, the first deaths came in February when two horses died within 96 hours of each other.

    The latest deaths occurred in October and then again the day after Thanksgiving.

    Eugene Burks Jr., who served as the Old Guard’s horses facilities and equipment manager for over two decades, said the deaths are extremely alarming.

    Two of the horses that died were a result of a gut issue.

  22. TASS -Russian envoy to Canada announces summoning to Global Affairs Canada

    Oleg Stepanov was also summoned to the Global Affairs Canada last week after the State Duma passed the bill on prohibition of propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations, pedophilia and information that motivates towards gender change

    OTTAWA, December 5. /TASS/. Russian Ambassador to Canada Oleg Stepanov was summoned to the Global Affairs Canada.

    “I’m being summoned to the Foreign Ministry again today, at 16:00 (00:30 Moscow time December 6),” Stepanov told TASS Monday, without disclosing the reason.

    Stepanov was also summoned to the Global Affairs Canada last week after the State Duma passed the bill on prohibition of propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations, pedophilia and information that motivates towards gender change; the summoning was justified by the fact that the Russian embassy in Canada posted “statements in defense of traditional values” on its social media. On Monday, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed the law.

    Anti-gay tweets from Russian embassy show Canada must step up on global LGBTQ rights

    This incident, which included an embassy tweet of a crossed-out Pride flag, reminds us the wave of anti-LGBTQ sentiment around the world is growing.

    In late November, Russia’s embassy in Ottawa launched a diplomatic firestorm after getting into a Twitter battle with three gay federal cabinet members: Tourism Minister Randy Boissonnault, Sport Minister Pascale St-Onge and Labour Minister Seamus O’Regan.

    The embassy, responding to global criticism of a new Russian anti-LGBTQ law, decided to come out swinging with a tweet of a crossed-out rainbow Pride flag that stated a family is only “a man and a woman and children.” After the ministers responded, the Russian embassy continued, with messages targeting St-Onge in particular.

    In reply, Foreign Affairs Minister Mélanie Joly summoned Russian ambassador to Canada Oleg Stepanov, the diplomatic equivalent of a finger-wagging.

    This incident reminds us that the wave of anti-LGBTQ sentiment around the world is growing, and Canada should step up and show leadership on the international stage. Whether the attacks originate from governments or from vigilantes engaging in acts of violence, the rights and safety of LGBTQ people are being threatened all over the world. Canada can do much more than respond via a few tweets and a diplomatic slap on the wrist.

    Of course, there is no place in the world with complete equality for LGBTQ people — including Canada, where work remains to protect our community’s human rights. But 67 countries still criminalize same-sex relations, including 11 that impose the death penalty. Countries like Russia, which at one time were moving forward on LGBTQ human rights, are now rolling backwards with severe crackdowns, exacerbating the existing LGBTQ refugee crisis. Authoritarian regimes are assaulting LGBTQ human rights in many countries, and online hatred is spreading across borders.

    Russia just passed new legislation which expands upon previous anti-LGBTQ laws, with fines for talking about LGBTQ people in books or films. In Qatar, the FIFA World Cup has raised awareness of that country’s anti-LGBTQ laws, which stipulate up to three years in prison for homosexuality.

    Last month, five people were murdered in a gay club in Colorado, a hate crime that may be connected to growing and unchecked online hatred against LGBTQ communities. In Ghana and Uganda, anti-homosexuality bills are back on the agenda, with proposed legislation that would further criminalize LGBTQ people with harsh new punishments and imprisonment.

    In a digitized, globalized world, the rise of anti-LGBTQ hatred and misinformation is interconnected — and Canada must play a greater role in the world to combat this.

    Over objections from House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy, the likely next speaker of the House come January 3 of next year, other congressional leaders acquiesced to lobbyist pressure and agreed to include the JCPA in the base text of the NDAA. McCarthy was the only member of congressional leadership to fight back against the inclusion, but was overruled three to one after McConnell caved.

    Arizona on Monday officially certified the rigged 2022 election.

    Democrat Katie Hobbs, who oversaw her own election as Secretary of State, was declared the winner.

    Arizona had a successful election,” Hobbs said. “But too often throughout the process, powerful voices proliferated misinformation that threatened to disenfranchise voters. Democracy prevailed, but it’s not out of the woods. 2024 will bring a host of challenges from the election denial community that we must prepare for.”

    The Hill reported:

Democracy prevailed, but it’s not out of the woods. 2024 will bring a host of challenges from the election denial community that we must prepare for.”

    The Hill reported:

    Hobbs’s team will now go before a state judge, who is poised to officially order the three recounts.

    But Monday’s meeting is also likely to spark multiple GOP-led lawsuits, as gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake (R), who lost to Hobbs, and attorney general candidate Abe Hamadeh (R), who trails his Democratic rival by the slimmest of margins ahead of the automatic recount, promise to take legal action.

    Under state law, they have five days to formally contest the results in court.

    Republicans are expected to fight the results in court after Election Day tabulators across Maricopa County were not working.

    • DEUTSCHE PRAVDA – Germany: 14-year-old girl dies after knife attack near Ulm

      The girl was assaulted by a knife-wielding man on the way to school. Local police have launched an investigation into the incident.

      Police in southern Germany have confirmed that a 14-year-old girl was killed and a 13-year-old suffered serious injuries Monday morning after being attacked on the street on their way to school in the village of Illerkirchberg.

      What do we know so far?

      The two girls were attacked around 7:30 a.m. local time by a man reportedly wielding a knife.

      Investigators confirmed that early indications are that they were stabbed.

      Police said, “The 14-year-old had to be reanimated at the scene before she could be taken to the hospital, where, despite all efforts to save her life, she died.” Her 13-year-old companion remains hospitalized in critical condition.

      Police have now also released some details about the attacker, as well. Police and prosecutors late Monday said the main suspect was a 27-year-old Eritrean asylum seeker.

      Authorities say the man, who is currently hospitalized and under police custody, fled into an asylum shelter after the attack, “When police and SWAT teams searched the premises they encountered three residents, all Eritrean asylum seekers.”

      Police said the man had been in the home before the attack and that he had a knife — believed to be the murder weapon — on him when he was arrested.

      The other two men in the shelter were taken in for questioning

      Earlier in the day, police told reporters they intended to conduct “a thorough background investigation.”

      No motive has yet been announced.

      Illerkirchberg mayor decries ‘horrible’ incident

      Local police say the operation, which was carried out with the assistace of a SWAT team, has now ended and there is no longer a threat to the public.

      Mayor Markus Häussler, who was at the crime scene all morning, called the situation “horrible” when speaking with the regional Südwest Presse newspaper.

      Häussler said Illerkirchberg — a picturesque baroque village of 5,000 situated south of Ulm at the Baden-Wuerttemberg/Bavaria border halfway between Stuttgart and Munich — is “in a state of shock.”

    The theft of state unemployment funds is the first pandemic fraud tied to foreign, state-sponsored cybercriminals that the U.S. government has acknowledged publicly.

    Hackers linked to the Chinese government stole at least $20 million in U.S. Covid relief benefits, including Small Business Administration loans and unemployment insurance funds in over a dozen states, according to the Secret Service.

    The theft of taxpayer funds by the Chengdu-based hacking group known as APT41 is the first instance of pandemic fraud tied to foreign, state-sponsored cybercriminals that the U.S. government has acknowledged publicly, but may just be the tip of the iceberg, according to U.S. law enforcement officials and cybersecurity experts.

  31. Is ‘Hell No’ An Option” – Kari Lake DESTROYS Leftist Twitter Poll Asking “Should Kari Lake Concede?”

    The 2022 Midterm in Arizona was stolen from Kari Lake by corrupt Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, who challenged Lake for Governor, and Kari Lake is not giving up.

    The election was an uncertifiable disaster on Election Day in Maricopa County when voting machines and printers suddenly stopped working at over 30% of voting centers the moment the polls opened. Republican voters were forced to wait in extremely long lines, turned away from the polls, or told to deposit their ballots in the questionable “box 3” for misread ballots.

    The Gateway Pundit reported yesterday that Katie Hobbs needed to ask Twitter to silence her critics on top of running her own election and threatening to jail County Supervisors if they did not certify her corrupt election win. She is desperate to certify this election and take the Governor’s office without facing questions or challenges.

    Katie Hobbs is now slated to certify her own corruption this morning when she signs off on the rigged 2022 midterm election that she supervised as Secretary of State.

  34. ORGANIZED FAMINE: Germany Orders Farmers to Slash Fertilizer After Dutch Government Shuts Down 3,000 Farms to Comply with Global Warming Goals

    The globalist left is engineering the next global famine. They’ll blame it on global warming when the truth is it’s their own policies that are creating the food shortage across the globe.

    Last week the Dutch government shut down 3,000 farms to comply with their global warming goals.

    This week Germany ordered farmers to slash fertilizer use in their fields to serve their green agenda.

    Meanwhile, the cost of food in the European Union increased 17.26 percent in October of 2022 over the same month in the previous year.
    via Trading Economics.

    Their leaders are as bright as Joe Biden.

    Over the last year, the green tyranny bureaucracy of the EU has managed to nearly destroy Western Europe’s energy relationship with Russia, leaving the continent desperate for energy inputs to keep its power grid functioning. Now, the food supply of Europe is under direct assault via multiple schemes that seem designed to end affordable food at the same time electricity is becoming unaffordable for businesses and residential households alike.

    “Germany bans farmers from properly fertilizing land to serve EU green agenda,” declares Breitbart.com. “As of Thursday, the use of nitrate fertilisers has been greatly restricted for large swathes of farmland in North Rhine-Westphalia,” the site reports, referring to one of the most abundant food production areas in Germany.

    The ban originates with EU bureaucrats waging war on nitrogen, the essential element that makes up nearly 80% of Earth’s atmosphere and is critical for crop production. After having declared war on carbon — the building block of biological life — globalists are now targeting nitrogen as a means to deliberately engineer widespread famine and mass death (depopulation).

  35. EXCLUSIVE: Maricopa County Poll Worker’s Affidavit Reveals How Democrats With Out-of-State Driver’s Licenses And No Voter Registration Were Allowed To Vote

    Another Maricopa County election judge has come forward with more evidence of illegality in Arizona’s 2022 Midterm Election.

    The Gateway Pundit reported that voting machine failures and tabulation issues led to massive and unprecedented voter disenfranchisement at the polls.

    A corrupt Obama Judge recently sanctioned Kari Lake in order to “send a message” and prevent election lawsuits from exposing the massive amounts of fraud. Lake was sanctioned for a lawsuit to ban the machines, citing vulnerabilities and potential for failure. Can you believe it?!

    Voting machines and printers suddenly stopped working at over 30% of voting centers the moment the polls opened on election day. Republican voters were forced to wait in extremely long lines, turned away from the polls, or told to deposit their ballots in the questionable “box 3” for misread ballots.

    These issues were present ALL DAY at some locations.

    Because of this, despite having had only 17% of the turnout on election day, Democrats outperformed Republicans in multiple counties, which is unlikely, if not impossible.

    The tabulation issues were not present at the Chandler voting center, according to the election judge. Still, “the massive lines were real. We had close to 200 people in line at one point, and it was a two-hour wait. And we had people walking off of the line because they just couldn’t wait anymore.” This is because “the troubleshooter was calling other sites and telling them to send people to us because their machines were down.”

    Some voters were unsure if their vote would count at the second location if they had already checked in at another location. In a now-deleted tweet, Maricopa County officials told voters that they could it’s ok to leave their voting center and go to another voting center. However, they never mention that you must check out first. This directly contradicts a recent letter from the County to the Arizona Attorney General’s office stating that voters must check out before leaving the polls if they intend to vote at another location.

    Our source told us, “there was no checkout procedure that we were trained on it,” and because of this, many were forced to vote on a provisional ballot that may not have been counted.

    Our source told us, “there was no checkout procedure that we were trained on it,” and because of this, many were forced to vote on a provisional ballot that may not have been counted.

    In addition to the issues described above, the new testimony reveals that two Democratic voters were registered to vote just days before Election Day, using out-of-state driver’s licenses in at least one polling location in Chandler, Arizona. One voter was allowed to register after she “indicated she had only been in the valley for a few weeks.”

    The legal deadline to register was October 11. This also goes against poll worker instructions to give these voters provisional ballots to be further investigated before counting.

    The election judge told The Gateway Pundit, “the system on the site book will tell you when someone’s registered. And so I pulled her up [in the site book]. I said, ‘well, you know, you’re not registered. We can give you a conditional, provisional ballot, but you know, you’re not in the system.’ And the inspector [Ronda Owens] came over and said, ‘no, no, I’ll fix it,’ and I said, ‘well, what do you mean?’ And she called the hotline, and she spoke to someone at the hotline, and then suddenly, she was registered and able to vote a regular ballot.”

    was stunned. Like, how do you do that? And she said, ‘well, because she filled out the first part of the information beforehand, and it just didn’t go through.’ And I said, ‘that doesn’t make any sense. You have to be completely registered to vote,’” the judge continued.

    Another woman who was “clearly not registered” walked into the polling center with an Illinois driver’s license and listed a commercial building as her residence. “Now the thing is, when you fill out the registration paperwork, there are two sheets. There’s the one you submit, and then you have a receipt, and she had both,” said the election judge. “The paper was not signed. She had signed somewhere else on the document. There’s a signature block, and she signed outside of that.”

    They continued, “Again, Ronda called [the hotline] downtown, and they said, ‘well, the address is a commercial building.’ And then somehow they changed that, and then suddenly she was registered to vote.”

    The election judge told us that both of the women were Democrats.

    The judge said they told Ronda, “That’s not kosher. You can’t be registering people after the deadline.” According to them, “she said, ‘well, the person had intended to register. They had the paperwork, and it just wasn’t completed.’ I’m like, ‘yeah, but it has to be completed before that.’” Ronda then “stopped doing it after that.”

    The judge also told us that “they were accepting photographs of ID” instead of physical proof of identity. “You didn’t need an actual certified paper. You could use a photograph of it. So technically, I could take my auto registration and my auto insurance card and Photoshop, take pictures of them and walk in and vote as anyone I want,” they said. The Arizona Secretary of State’s webpage states that a valid Arizona Vehicle Registration and Arizona vehicle insurance card are acceptable forms of ID for voting. “The inspector said that pictures of it were ok,” the judge continued.

    After seeing the issues at this polling location and hearing about tabulator malfunctions across the valley, the judge concluded, “I have no confidence at all that this election was run fairly.”

    The election judge who submitted this affidavit asked The Gateway Pundit to redact his name; however, they are prepared to reveal their identity if asked to testify in court.

    For the election of Nov 8, 2022, I worked election day and the preceding days corresponding to a twelve day site. I worked as an election judge at Chandler Gilbert Community College located at 2626 Pecos Road, Gilbert Arizona. During the early voting period, we had two people come in that weren’t registered. The inspector called the hotline and they were then registered and permitted to vote.

    The first person was a tall Caucasian woman with blonde hair. She was approximately 5? 8?, medium build wearing athletic clothing. She had a California driver’s license and indicated she had only been in the valley for a few weeks.

    The second person was a woman with an Illinois driver’s license. She said she was only here for a two to three weeks. She was African American with dark hair. She was approximately 5? 4? heavy build wearing dark clothing. Her registration didn’t complete because the address that she provided was a commercial building. She became agitated when she found out she wasn’t registered because she was flying back to Chicago the next day.

    The registration deadline for this election was 10/11/2022. Two people whose registrations were not completed before then were permitted to vote.

    declare under penalty of perjury that the foregoing is true and correct. Signed on the 1 day of December 2022.”

    After threatening to jail County Supervisors if they did not certify her corrupt election win, corrupt Katie Hobbs will certify the statewide results of this rigged and stolen election today at 10 am.

    The US Supreme Court on Monday listened to arguments in a case about a Colorado web designer who doesn’t want to create wedding websites for same-sex couples.

    The conservative justices argued the web designer has freedom of speech to choose which websites she designs.

    “Justice Neil Gorsuch noted that a businessperson’s objection would not be based on the status of the same-sex couple, but instead, the message the businessperson did not want to send. The question isn’t the “who” Gorsuch said, but the “what.”” CNN reported.

  38. Kansas Law School Silent After Diversity Committee Demonizes Christian Law Firm, Spurring Top State Judge to Resign

    justice on the Kansas Supreme Court resigned from his teaching position at the University of Kansas School of Law after an administrator tried to convince students to cancel an event featuring a senior lawyer with Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) and a school diversity committee condemned that Christian legal organization as a purveyor of “hate speech.”

    Representatives of the University of Kansas Law School did not respond to multiple requests for comment about whether the school endorses the accusation, which appears to trace back to the discredited Southern Poverty Law Center’s accusation that Alliance Defending Freedom is a “hate group.”
