    • MARCH 10 2023 – Orbán’s chilling message: “We are closer than ever to world war”

      The world is closer than ever to a local conflict becoming world war, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán told public radio on Friday.

      “Leaders of the western world are gripped by war fever, holding speeches calling for winning the war and making further sacrifices, and sending increasingly dangerous weapons to Ukraine,” Orbán said in an interview. Rather than promoting peace unanimously, the world is divided, Orbán said: Turkic and Arab states, China and African countries want a ceasefire and peace talks, he said.

      Hungary must have a strong military and promote peace at the same time, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán told public radio on Friday. A country can defend itself if its citizens love their homeland and are ready to defend it in trouble rather than fleeing from it, Orbán said in an interview. Hungary needs an effective Armed Forces, and the government is working to increase the number of troops, their commitment to their homeland and vocation, their level of training, and their public standing, Orbán said. They must also be equipped with modern weapons, he said.

      “Being pro-peace doesn’t mean we have to be defenceless,” he said. Leftist parties “are pro-war, and “as long as they are being financed from abroad”, they are expected to stay that way, he said. However, the parliamentary majority ensures a bigger weight to the “party of peace”, Orbán said.

      West Close To Discussing Possibility Of Sending Allied Troops To Ukraine – Orban

      Western countries are very close to seriously discussing the prospect of sending allied troops to Ukraine, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said

      BUDAPEST (UrduPoint News / Sputnik – 10th March, 2023) Western countries are very close to seriously discussing the prospect of sending allied troops to Ukraine, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said.

      According to Orban, the leaders of the Western world are suffering from “war fever” and “sending more and more dangerous weapons to Ukraine,” as the sending of fighter jets to Kiev, which used to be “considered taboo,” is already on the agenda.

      “I think we are very close to suggesting, in all seriousness, that the soldiers of Ukraine’s allied countries cross the border and enter the territory of Ukraine,” Orban said on Kossuth radio. “The world has never been so close to so that from a local war after all, it was about Luhansk and Donetsk a world war would turn out. The likelihood of this is growing from day to day.”

      Orban said earlier that European countries were “like sleepwalkers on a roof” constantly teetering on the brink of war with Russia.

      In fact, an indirect war, he said, is already underway, as the West is supplying ever more lethal weapons to Kiev and may even go as far as sending “peacekeeping troops.” According to the speaker of the Hungarian Parliament, Laszlo Kover, a number of EU and NATO countries sent Ukraine $60 billion worth of lethal weapons, which made them parties to the conflict.

      Since the beginning of the conflict, Hungary has consistently opposed sanctions on Russian energy resources and sending weapons to Ukraine. In early March last year, the Hungarian parliament issued a decree prohibiting the supply of weapons to Ukraine from the country’s territory. The country’s foreign minister, Peter Szijjarto, explained that Budapest sought to secure the territory of Transcarpathia, where ethnic Hungarians live, since the supply of weapons through its territory would make it a legitimate military target.

    • WaPo – In the middle of war, Ukraine is building a wind farm

      The turbines are going up despite Russia’s bombing of the nation’s power infrastructure

      Towering wind turbines don’t immediately stand out as unusual on a continent where such machines are becoming part of the landscape. But these were built on sites peppered with bomb shelters, and under the wail of air raid sirens.

      The Ukrainian energy company DTEK on Friday hit a milestone in the war-torn nation’s audacious bid to remake its energy economy and become a clean power hub for Europe. It announced a dozen turbines had been built and brought online under some of the most challenging conditions anywhere in the world, just 60 miles from the front lines of the war with Russia.

      The project in the Mykolaiv region is now helping generate electricity for the area’s beleaguered residents and the broader power grid. The plan is for it to ultimately grow to several dozen turbines, creating enough energy to power as many as a half-million homes.

      “When the war started and the focus was on how are we going to survive, we did not know what we would do with this huge construction project,” said Oleksandr Selyshchev, CEO of DTEK Renewables. “Then the early wins of our army made it clear that victory was not in doubt, it was just a matter of time. So we made the decision to continue building.”

      The project comes online as Ukraine tries to show its commitment to aligning with the European Union’s plan for greening the power grid. The company behind the Tiligul wind farm, located in the southern part of Ukraine, east of Odessa, was built largely on coal. It is owned by Ukraine oligarch Rinat Akhemtov, who expanded his business empire acquiring Soviet-era fossil fuel assets.

      Now, DTEK’s executives are aggressively promoting a fledgling plan for Ukraine to build 30 gigawatts of clean power by 2030, half of which they say could be exported to other countries in the form of electricity or green hydrogen. The transition toward cleaner power was already underway before Russia invaded, with Ukraine’s aging coal infrastructure and depleted mines becoming obsolete and an impractical investment.

      But pursuing the transition while the country and its power grid are under constant attack is a colossal challenge. Compounding the difficulty, many of Ukraine’s country’s best sites for producing renewable energy are in or near Russian occupied territory.

      “When we first started discussing what to do and how to proceed, it was tough,” Selyshchev said of the Tiligul wind project. “It was a disaster. It was war.” Foreign contractors involved in the project were unable to send their workers into the war zone, meaning Ukraine needed to work with the companies to train local teams to do much of the work.

      “We had to create an entirely new approach to construction,” Selyshchev said. “It was winter time. We had air raid alarms going off. It is not like we could work on a normal schedule.”

      In the years leading up to the war, Ukraine, long a laggard in greening its power grid, had begun making progress. In 2009, only three percent of the country’s energy mix came from renewable sources such as solar, wind and geothermal power, according to the Center for Strategic and International Studies. By the end of 2020, it had jumped to more than 12%. Ukraine’s goal is to double that by 2035.

      “In the long term, Ukraine wants to link its energy future with Europe and not Russia,” said Ben Cahill, a senior fellow in energy security and climate change at CSIS. “That means trying to move toward a role where Ukraine could provide more zero-carbon electricity and potentially export it to Europe.”

      Cahill said Ukraine has to compete against other countries that offer investors a less risky place to park their money than a nation under attack.

      “Every project they are able to build in Ukraine tells investors, ‘this is possible. Don’t write us off,’” Cahill said.

      Wind turbines and solar panels also have unique benefits for Ukraine right now, as Russia relentlessly targets the country’s electricity infrastructure. These types of clean power sources can be more resilient than fossil fuel plants, which are more compact, vulnerable targets and tougher to rebuild.

      “These installations are harder to destroy with missiles,” said Tatyana Deryugina, an associate professor of finance at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and expert in Ukraine energy. “They are more spread out. It is harder to knock them offline. Even if you knock a wind turbine or some solar panels out, there are others still standing.”

      A modest DTEK solar farm in the Kherson region which was partially destroyed by shelling and looting from the Russian military was able to get repaired and back online quickly after the Ukraine military retook control of the area in October. The solar panels, in the village of Tryfonivka, are powering a makeshift transmission line while engineers work to rebuild the local power station, which was completely destroyed.

      The solar panels are bringing electricity to a community near the front lines that might still be in the dark had it been reliant on a gas or coal plant.

      European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen announced last month in Kyiv that the E.U. hopes to provide an infusion of rooftop solar panels for hospitals, schools, fire departments and other public buildings in Ukraine. Clean energy advocates in Ukraine are hoping the projects can replace emergency generators running on diesel.

      “If we want to move forward with these decarbonization efforts, we have to start with smaller scale projects and show they can power a hospital, and that these technologies can provide the basic energy supply for critical infrastructure,” said Anna Ackerman, a policy analyst at the International Institute for Sustainable Development.

      She cautioned that the path to meeting Ukraine’s lofty goals for renewable power is still unclear. The types and scale of clean energy resources it develops, she said, will hinge on the direction of the nation’s postwar economy. As war rages, decisions have yet to be made about what industries will be emphasized in peacetime, and where and how they will be built.

      “The only clear thing everyone understands is there is no future for coal,” she said. “Otherwise, the picture has not yet come together. It is very difficult in wartime to plan for how the future energy mix might look. But having these discussions is important.”

      Allies of Ukraine are eager to engage. At the United Nations Climate Summit late last year in Egypt, U.S. Climate Envoy John F. Kerry joined the Ukraine energy minister to announce their intention to turn the war-torn nation into a staging ground for new clean fuels.

      Their plan would make the country a host to advanced nuclear technology American firms are developing, which would be put to use to produce emissions-free hydrogen fuel. “Putin’s unprovoked and brutal invasion of Ukraine will require rebuilding even stronger,” Kerry said at the time.

      At the moment, though, Ukraine is just trying to move forward one wind turbine and solar panel at a time.

      “Even in wartime, we will continue with this transition,” Selyshchev said.


    • business insider – Nord Stream mystery: the tanker Minerva Julie spent 7 days idling near the attack site

      The question of who blew up the Nord Stream pipelines is likely to remain an unsolved mystery for some time.

      Even as new details surface from European investigators, one of the most intriguing clues to recently emerge comes not from official probes but via a 29-year-old open-source analyst based in Denmark. Oliver Alexander spent months analyzing data from the maritime Automatic Identification System, or AIS, from vessels that passed near the site of three out of the four pipeline ruptures shortly before the damage. He discovered that the Minerva Julie, a 600-foot Greek-flagged tanker, was headed east from Rotterdam when, on September 6, it came to an abrupt stop in the middle of the Baltic Sea.

      The Minerva Julie stayed there, alternately idling and crossing a roughly 200-square-nautical-mile area above the two natural-gas pipelines, for seven days, from September 6 until September 12. From there, the Julie traveled on to Tallinn, Estonia before anchoring at Saint Petersburg, Russia on September 18. Then, on September 26, the two pipelines burst.

      The coincidence discovered by Alexander has sparked a wave of speculation online among a committed group of amateur sleuths and maritime experts. At the same time, it’s difficult to imagine that the official investigators tasked with getting to the truth of the Nord Stream sabotage wouldn’t want to know more about the Minerva Julie since the vessel spent a week circling above what was about to become a massive geopolitical crime scene. The data uncovered by Alexander does not indicate that the vessel was in any way involved with the destruction of the pipelines. It does, however, raise the question of what the crew might have witnessed.

      In an emailed statement to Insider, a spokesperson for Minerva Marine confirmed the Julie’s location over the 7-day period, and said that the vessel had stopped “while awaiting her next voyage instructions,” in accordance with “standard shipping practice.” The statement did not say whether Minerva had been contacted by investigators. It said the company “always been and remains at the disposal of all competent public authorities in respect to any inquiry, acting always in a legitimate and transparent manner.”

      Investigators say the Nord Stream breakage was an act of sabotage, caused by what they’ve estimated to be hundreds of pounds of military-grade explosives attached to the pipelines at around 80 meters in depth, or roughly 260 feet. The undersea pipelines were financed by a consortium of companies from Russia, Germany, France, and the Netherlands. The pipelines bypassed Ukraine to deliver Russian natural gas directly to Germany.

      Alexander found that the three explosions, marked below by black darts, occurred almost exactly where the Julie had taken its long pause a few days before. To date, there is no indication that either the Minerva Julie’s owners or its crew are the subject of the investigations, which reports suggest are focusing on a rented yacht.

      Insider verified Alexander’s findings regarding the Julie’s location using MarineTraffic, which compiles global AIS data from the location transponders used by commercial shipping vessels. Not all vessels show up on AIS databases, and the data can be vulnerable to manipulation.

      European investigators have reportedly linked the pipeline attacks to a rented boat. The yacht, believed to be a 50-foot sailboat equipped with a 75-horsepower engine, is said to have embarked on September 6, the same day the Minerva Julie stopped at the future site of the explosions. Authorities reportedly searched the yacht where they found traces of explosives. On Thursday, Der Spiegel identified that yacht as the Andromeda. Several photos of the Andromeda were posted to Twitter on Thursday by Aric Toler, a researcher at Bellingcat.

      Among the questions raised by Alexander’s discovery of the Minerva Julie’s AIS locational data is whether the tanker came into contact with the smaller Andromeda. While floating near the attack site, to northeast of the island of Bornholm, the Julie’s pilothouse would likely have had a visibility of roughly 10 to 15 miles. It’s unclear whether investigators have obtained the Julie’s logbook, navigational charts or radar history, which could have records of activity around the attack sites during that seven-day period.

      For the Julie to suddenly pause for seven days in the midst of a voyage, immediately above the future attack site, is a striking coincidence, perhaps the most serious case of a vessel being at the wrong place and time since the container ship Ever Given ran aground in the middle of the Suez Canal, blocking traffic for six days in 2021.

      But an innocuous explanation for the Julie’s whereabouts is far from impossible, shipping experts told Insider.

      “Ships don’t always go full speed from point A to point B,” said Steve Richter, a marine consultant and veteran docking pilot. “For example, if a ship is bound for a refinery in Philadelphia, they might not have a berth available for them. So they might drift slowly to kill time off the coast of Delaware on their way up the coast. At the same time, it is uncommon for a tank ship to stop enroute and sail in a circle, unless they have a change in orders or perhaps a mechanical issue onboard.”

      A second shipping expert told Insider that the Julie could have been awaiting orders about where to go next. “From where I sit, it’s likely that there was only one vessel involved in the attack, and hundreds of others in the area,” they said. “In other words, there is a large volume of hay. Is this the needle? Could be, but it isn’t likely.”

      The Julie would be an unlikely choice for saboteurs, as the tanker self-reported its position throughout. And to be sure, the Julie has not been named by any details yet public from the ongoing probes.

      For Alexander, the close proximity of the Julie to the explosion in both space and time warrants further scrutiny. He he told Insider: “To me, it’s too much of a coincidence.”

      Various reports have tried to attribute the attacks to Americans, Russians, Ukrainians, and pro-Ukrainian irregulars. All three countries have denied involvement. After a meeting early last year with the German chancellor, President Joe Biden promised to “bring an end” to the Nord Stream 2, should Russia move ahead with what was then an apparent plan to cross the border into Ukraine, which it did in late February 2022. For now, the best evidence of who was behind the attacks is in the hands of authorities from Sweden, Germany, and Denmark, which all have ongoing investigations into the sabotage.

      • This makes more sense then the Hersh report, if you are planning a covert actions against an enemy in semi peacetime you don’t use your military assets in an open manner. You would give your assets fake identities, rent or buy cheap but reliable transportation and tell them not to draw any attention to themselves.

        This sabatoge could have been carried out by a small group of scuba divers with knowledge of navigation and explosives.

        I’m not saying Obiden didn’t order the operation. I’m saying that the US wouldn’t use a naval warfare exercise as a cover. Using the exercise as a cover would have been hiring a brass band to draw attention. The ships involved have large crews, the crews would have talked to each other and the cover would have been blown several times before the explosives were detonated.

        I wish left wing alpha Hotels would learn something about the subjects they are talking about. I also wish the supposed military experts that are backing Hersh’s report would stop letting their hatred for Obiden and crew get in the way of their brains saying something is wrong with the story.

  1. January 6 “Insurrection” versus Georgia’s Recent Political Upheaval
    By Larry Johnson Mar. 10, 2023 7:00 am

    The Georgia in my title is the nation of Georgia, which is located on the border of Russia. Got it? No need to post Ray Charles singing, “Georgia.”

    This has been a fascinating week in Washington for mega-hypocrisy. I have written previously about the Biden team lecturing and warning China against arming Russia while the United States is sending weapons to Ukraine and Taiwan. Granted. That is the mother of all hypocrisy.

    But second place goes to the Biden Administration’s feverish support of foreign intervention in the affairs of Georgia, all in the name of “democracy”, and endorsing attacks by mobs paid for by foreign intelligence organizations on Georgian police while calling for Tucker Carlson to be censored because he exposed the lies about the so-called insurrection of January 6.

    Tucker single-handedly had the Democrat/Republican establishment flailing for the fainting couch because he obliterated the January 6 “insurrection” meme by posting previously hidden video footage. Instead of Trump crazed fiends rampaging through the Capitol wantonly killing every Capitol Hill cop they could find, the newly released video shows tranquil, patriotic folks walking within the ropes and not attack police. Oh the horror!

    Well, kudos to “SteveVoiceOver” who has produced devastating satire that exposes the Democrat and establishment Republican cliques efforts to tarnish Trump supporters as violent extremists. Enjoy.

    So what the hell does this have to do with Georgia, Russia’s neighbor? The legislature of Georgia recently approved legislation requiring organizations in Georgia receiving at least 20% of their funding from foreign sources to register with the Georgian Government. The Foreign Agent Registration Act in the United States is more stringent that the new law proposed in Georgia.

    Guess what happened? Protests in Georgia, funded by foreign organizations (which likely include the CIA and British MI6) exploded in the streets of Tblisi, and the U.S. State Department spokesman, Ned Price, insisted the Capitol Hill Police, oops, I mean the Georgian Police were over reacting to peaceful protests. Judge for yourself:

    Here is the video and transcript from Ned Price’s daily brief on 7 March (the discussion of Georgia starts around the 3 minute mark):

    QUESTION — About Georgia have you been following the situation in Felicia Georgia since morning there were clashes between the protesters and the police and they were clearly an excessive use of military I’m sorry the um law enforcement power?

    NED PRICE — um and this is over the you know Kremlin inspired legislation that we do and talked extensively in the last few weeks so what what are you learning about that we’ve been closely following developments in Georgia.

    In recent hours we’ve seen the reports that are emanating from to be Tibilisi we’ve seen reports that protesters have been met with tear gas with other efforts to repress and suppress the protest against this draft so-called foreign agents legislation.

    Our message to the people of Georgia to the government of Georgia to people and governments around the world is that the United States stands with all of those who are peacefully exercising what is a unit Universal right it is a universal right to people around the world to assemble to have their voices heard to speak freely to hold their own governments accountable.

    We are going to continue to monitor the situation on the grounds in Georgia but our message is that peaceful protesters should be allowed to exercise that right peacefully that is a right that is available to people in Georgia.

    It is a right that is available to people in every country around the world and very lastly today’s latest statement by the embassy of the U.S and Georgia starts with the sentence today is a dark day for Jewell Justice democracy and the entire text is the harshest that I’ve ever seen you know throughout the 30 plus years of diplomatic relations.

    So just give me a general sense of the what is the feeling at the state department between diplomats when they are looking at those you know human rights records rule of law the freedom of speech and detrimental effect it has towards euro-atlantic integration. How much will the U.S foreign policy and the you know foreign aid and all of that will change if that trajectory will be continued by the Georgian government and which is moving the country towards Russia?

    You asked about the feeling here the feeling here is one of deep concern you have heard us express that sentiment consistently in recent days. It is a feeling of deep concern because of the potential implications of this draft law this draft law would strike at some of the very rights that are Central to the aspirations of the people of Georgia for a Consolidated democracy, for euro-atlantic integration and for a brighter future.

    It would stigmatize and silence independent voices and citizens citizens of Georgia who wish to do nothing more more than work together to build a brighter future a future that is integrated with Europe. A future that is democratic and free where Georgia is an independent and sovereign country.

    We’re so deeply concerned and troubled of course for what this could mean for the people of Georgia but also because the United States has been a partner to Georgia over the course of recent decades ever since Georgia declared its independence. The United States has been right there with it supporting the aspirations of the Georgian people and at the earliest days of Georgia’s Independence those aspirations were Nations they were nothing more than an idea.

    In some cases over the course of in swimming decades the people of Georgia have worked to realize those aspirations they have made tremendous progress in becoming the Democracy that they sought from those earliest days in integrating Georgia uh into the euro-atlantic community and ensuring that Georgia stays on that path.

    Now however we see a draft piece of legislation that would be a tremendous setback, this would be a setback to the aspirations of the people of Georgia, it would be a setback to the ability of the United States to continue to be a partner for the people of Georgia.

    I made this point yesterday I think it was but anyone who is voting for this draft legislation would be responsible in part for jeopardizing those very euro-atlantic aspirations of the Georgian people. We don’t wish to see that happen beyond the United States it is the EU the U.N of course most importantly the George people Georgian Civil Society groups all of them have issued strong statements of concern about this draft legislation.

    What a load of crap!! Price regularly soils himself over claims that Russia is illegally “interfering” in the internal affairs of the United States, but insists that foreign countries have a fundamental right to poke their imperialist noses into Georgia’s internal affairs. The Russians and Chinese are not stupid. They see this rank hypocrisy by Biden’s America and realize the United States is untrustworthy and a malevolent threat. The United States will continue to play this dangerous game of trying to create foreign slave states until it is forced to stop meddling.

    (Richard: I don’t agree with his conclusion stated in this article. Granted the Obiden administration is doing all it can to destroy what is left of Western Civilization we must remember that this doesn’t make Putin the good guy. Johnson’s knee jerk reflex that all trouble in Eastern Europe is caused by American action is as dangerous as thinking Xi is trying to help the Chinese people achieve freedom. Putin is a product of the Internal KGB, he spent his early adult years hunting for people who wanted freedom and either killing them or sending them to the gulang. In other words he is as evil and nasty as Obiden and probably worse. His dream is to recreate the Russian Empire.

    If you think this sounds like the domino theory about the war in Nam remember after Nam fell the communists took Cambodia and Thailand started having a lot of internal problems caused by communist agitators.)

  2. 1:23 on how a bank run works:

    Most people are unaware that the 2008 financial crisis may have quietly deleted the “fractional” part of the fractional reserve banking system, meaning cash on hand was no longer required, at all, to operate. This meant that from that point on the bankers knew it was only a matter of time until the ponzi fell. If this is true it is supported, dramatically, by this:

    Note that is from 2013. And Harper can’t really be blamed, in a sense, because the U.S. was ground zero for the ’08 crisis, and everyone else had to follow suit. It was ordained in order to maintain the system at the time.

    By Jim Hoft Mar. 10, 2023 8:00 am26 Comments

    Tucker Carlson released explosive video on Monday from his investigative reporting on the more than 40,000 hours of government video from January 6, 2021 at the US Capitol.

    Since Monday he has released NO NEW VIDEO. This comes after numerous threats from Democrats, the government and Uniparty members who wish to keep the truth of January 6 hidden from the American public.

    For over two years the American public has been lied to by their government, the government-media alliance, and DC politicians.

    Here are FIVE excruciatingly vicious videos from January 6 that the government does not want you to see.

    1.) Trump supporter Victoria White being beaten over 40 times in the face by Capitol Police with their fists and batons after she was pushed into the US Capitol tunnel.

    By Joe Hoft Mar. 10, 2023 8:30 am

    The Democrats are livid that Elon Musk allowed journalists to come into Twitter after he purchased the company and release damning information that the government, corrupt politicians (like Adam Schiff), corrupt NGOs, Big Media and Big Tech colluded to censor, shadow-ban, and purge conservative content.

    On Thursday, before the House Judiciary subcommittee, the Democrats expressed their disgust with Elon Musk and two journalists who are uncovering the actions at Twitter that prevented average Americans from partaking in free speech.

    The Democrats were raging at Elon Musk for revealing that the Democrats and their corrupt allies committed multiple crimes to censor the free speech in America.

    One tweet that was released by Taibbi before his House interview related to a Big Media outlet demanding Twitter remove some COVID-19 vax offenders.

  5. Where is the big Russian offensive? This is, at the moment, the million dollar question that inevitably intrudes on any discussion of the war’s current course. It is probably not surprising (to those of us that are familiar with human nature, at least) that this question becomes a Rorschach test in which everybody sees their own prior assumptions about the Russian military.

    The answers to this question do indeed vary widely. On one extreme, there are those who believe that hundreds of thousands of Russian troops are prepared to launch an enormous “big arrow” offensive at any moment. We see this both from commentators like retired US Colonel Douglas MacGregor and from some Ukrainian sources who are likely trying to foment a sense of urgency to extract more aid from the west. On the other extreme, we have those who claim that the Russian military is so depleted that there will be no offensive at any point whatsoever. There are also some in the Reich Ministry of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda western intelligentsia, like the Nuland Institute for the Study of War or Michael Koffman, who argue that the offensive has already begun but is so lame and weak that nobody noticed.

    Okay. So either a giant offensive will happen any minute now (it might have just started while I was typing that), or it will never happen at all, or it already happened, or perhaps it’s in a state of quantum superposition in which it has both succeeded and failed, at least until we open the box.

    A thorny issue indeed. There is, at the moment, a great deal of important and intense combat occurring in many different sectors of front – but what relation do these operations have to any big arrow action by the Russians? Is this an underwhelming entrée or an appetizer?

    I would like to suggest an alternative to all these theories, because what the world needs most right now is more opinions.

    At the moment, Russia has the initiative across the front. Ukraine’s reserves are in a tenuous state right now (especially given their politically imposed mandate to try and accumulate a force for an offensive against the land bridge to Crimea), and Russia is driving high intensity combat in important sectors right now.

  6. NYT – Saudi Arabia and Iran Agree to Re-establish Ties in Talks Hosted by China

    The agreement between the regional rivals was facilitated by China, underlining the country’s growing economic and political importance in the Middle East.

    RIYADH, Saudi Arabia — Saudi Arabia and Iran have reached an agreement that paves the way for the re-establishment of diplomatic ties after a seven-year split, in what would be a major realignment between regional rivals that was facilitated by China, the countries said on Friday in a joint statement.

    Saudi and Iranian officials announced the agreement after talks this week in China, which maintains close ties with both countries, according to the statement, which was published by the official Saudi Press Agency. Iran’s state news media also announced an agreement.

    The two countries agreed to reactivate a lapsed security cooperation pact — a shift that comes after years of Iranian proxies targeting Saudi Arabia with missile and drone attacks — as well as older trade, investment and cultural accords.

    Saudi Arabia and Iran will reopen embassies in each other’s countries within two months, and both states confirmed “their respect for the sovereignty of nations and noninterference in their internal affairs,” the statement said.

    China’s role in hosting the talks that led to a breakthrough in a longstanding regional rivalry highlights the country’s growing economic and political importance in the Middle East, a region that was long shaped by the military and diplomatic involvement of the United States. Saudi and Iranian officials had engaged in several rounds of talks over the past two years, including in Iraq and Oman, without significant steps forward.

    China’s top leader, Xi Jinping, visited Riyadh in December, a state visit that was celebrated by Saudi officials, who often complain that their American allies are pulling away from the region.

    “That is a reflection of China’s growing strategic clout in the region — the fact that it has a lot of leverage over the Iranians, the fact it has very deep and important economic relations with the Saudis,” said Mohammed Alyahya, a Saudi fellow at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard. “There is a strategic void in the region, and the Chinese seem to have figured out how to capitalize on that.”

    China’s most senior foreign policy official, Wang Yi, indicated in a statement on the Chinese foreign ministry website that Beijing had played an instrumental role in the agreement.

    “This is a victory for the dialogue, a victory for peace, and is major positive news for the world which is currently so turbulent and restive, and it sends a clear signal,” he said. “The world is not just the Ukraine issue, and there are many issues bearing on peace and people’s well-being that demand the attention of the international community and must be properly addressed by the parties concerned in a timely way.”

    After years of tensions, Saudi Arabia cut ties with Iran completely in 2016, when protesters stormed the kingdom’s embassy in Tehran after Saudi Arabia’s execution of a prominent Saudi Shiite cleric.

    The rivalry between the two Islamic nations, which are less than 150 miles away from each other across the Persian Gulf, has long shaped politics and trade in the Middle East. It has a sectarian dimension — a majority of Saudi Arabia’s population is Sunni, while Iran’s is overwhelmingly Shiite — but has predominantly played out via proxy conflicts in neighboring Yemen, Iraq and Lebanon, where Iran has supported militias that Saudi officials say have destabilized the region.

    Tensions hit a peak in 2019, when a missile and drone assault on a key Saudi oil installation briefly disrupted half of the kingdom’s crude production; U.S. officials said that Iran had directly overseen the attack.

    The two countries have also faced off in Yemen, where a Saudi-led coalition is fighting Houthi rebels whom Iran has supported.

    Saudi officials have also repeatedly expressed fear over Iran’s nuclear program, saying that they would be the foremost target for the Islamic Republic. But over the past few years, they have engaged in a series of talks with Iranian delegations, with both sides hoping to ease tensions.

    China also wants stability in the region, with more than 40 percent of its energy coming from the Gulf, said Jonathan Fulton, a nonresident senior fellow for Middle East programs at the Atlantic Council.

    “Beijing has adopted a smart approach using its strategic partnership diplomacy, building diplomatic capital on both sides of the Gulf,” he said. “Unlike the United States, which balances one side against the other, and is therefore limited in its diplomatic capacity.

    Ali Shamkhani, the head of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, told Iran’s NourNews Agency that President Ebrahim Raisi’s visit to China in February had helped create the opportunity for the negotiations to move forward.

    Mr. Shamkhani described the talks as “unequivocal, transparent, comprehensive and constructive.” He said he was looking forward to relations between Iran and Saudi Arabia that foster “the security and stability of the region.”

    For Iran, mending ties with a regional enemy would be a welcome relief after months of internal turmoil marked by antigovernment protests that Iranian officials have blamed in part on Saudi Arabia. The Iranian government spokesman, Ali Bahadori Jahromi, tweeted that “the historic agreement of Saudi-Iran negotiated in China and led entirely by Asian countries will change the dynamics of the region.”

    The Israeli foreign ministry declined to immediately comment. But the news complicates the Israeli assumption that shared fears of a nuclear Iran would help Israel forge a formal relationship with Saudi Arabia.

    Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, has repeatedly stated in recent months that he hoped to seal diplomatic ties between Israel and Saudi Arabia for the first time.

    The agreement comes as China has been trying to play a more active role in global governance by releasing a political settlement plan for the war in Ukraine and updating what it calls the Global Security Initiative, a bid to supplant Washington’s dominant role in addressing the world’s conflicts and crises.

    Mark Dubowitz, the chief executive of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, a Washington-based research institute, described the renewed Iran-Saudi ties resulting from Chinese mediation as “a lose, lose, lose for American interests.”

    He added: “It demonstrates that the Saudis don’t trust Washington to have their back, that Iran sees an opportunity to peel away American allies to end its international isolation and that China is becoming the major-domo of Middle Eastern power politics.”

    Yet Trita Parsi, an executive vice president of the Quincy Institute, a Washington research group that advocates U.S. restraint overseas, called the agreement “good news for the Middle East, since Saudi-Iranian tensions have been a driver of instability in the region.”

    the guardian – Iran and Saudi Arabia agree to restore ties after China-brokered talks

    Embassies to reopen in move that could have wide implications for Iran nuclear deal and Yemen war

    Iran and Saudi Arabia, the two great oil-producing rivals of the Middle East, have agreed to restore ties and reopen embassies seven years after relations were severed.

    The agreement came after Chinese-brokered talks held in Beijing. “As a result of the talks, Iran and Saudi Arabia agreed to resume diplomatic relations and reopen embassies … within two months,” Iran’s state news agency IRNA reported, citing a joint statement.

    Riyadh cut ties with Tehran after Iranian protesters attacked Saudi diplomatic missions in Iran in 2016 following the Saudi execution of the revered Shia cleric Nimr al-Nimr. The rivalry between predominantly Shia Iran and Sunni Saudi Arabia has dominated Middle East politics in recent years, spreading into Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and Yemen.

    Nour News, which is linked to Iran’s supreme national security council, posted footage of Ali Shamkhani, the council’s secretary, with a Saudi official and China’s most senior diplomat, Wang Yi.

    “After implementing the decision, the foreign ministers of both nations will meet to prepare for exchange of ambassadors,” Iranian state television said.

    The agreement has potentially wide implications for the Iran nuclear deal and the civil war in Yemen, where the two sides are locked in a proxy war, and shows the new determination of Saudi Arabia to conduct a foreign policy independent of the west.

    The Saudi Press Agency confirmed the agreement, which said the two countries had agreed to respect state sovereignty and not interfere in each other’s internal affairs.

    The statement also said Riyadh and Tehran had agreed to activate a security cooperation agreement signed in 2001.

    Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, Iran’s foreign minister, said: “The return of normal relations between Iran and Saudi Arabia provides great capacities to the two countries, the region and the Islamic world. The neighbourhood policy, as the key axis of the government’s foreign policy, is strongly moving in the right direction, and the diplomatic apparatus is actively behind the preparation of more regional steps.”

    Talks between Saudi Arabia and Iran on a potential reconciliation have been continuing for years mainly in Iraq, so it is a surprise for the deal to be sealed in China.

    Speaking in London earlier this week, the Saudi foreign minister, Prince Faisal bin Farhan al-Saud, defended Saudi Arabia’s links with China, saying: “China is our largest trading partner. It is also the largest trading partner of most countries. And that is a reality that we will have to deal with. China, for us, is an important and valued partner in many areas. We have excellent working relationships across many sectors. But we have said and repeat this, always, we will look towards our own interests. And we will look for them in the west and in the east.”

    He also stressed he believed the Iran nuclear talks in their current form were moribund, and it would be better to change the format so that other currently excluded regional powers most affected by Iran’s nuclear programme were included.

    Prince Saud added he did not think the Saudis would have any additional demands about Iran’s civil nuclear programme than those currently posed by the west, but said: “I believe we can when we are at the table make it quite clear to the Iranians that this is not just a concern of distant countries, but it’s also a concern of its neighbours. Those neighbours would move into seeking better normal relations. So if we make clear that this is part of reassuring us, I think that may help them find it more acceptable to engage in such a process.”

    In Yemen the Saudis have been backing the internationally recognised government in an eight-year civil war against Iranian-backed Houthi rebels based in the north, but have been looking for a way to end the war by conducting private talks in Oman with the Houthis.

    The pact does not necessarily mean any change in the Saudi approach to the Palestinian conflict. Saudi Arabia has refused to join the Abraham accords that normalised relations between Israel and some Arab states.


    Saudi Press Agency agreement

  7. “Nobody said you wouldn’t get COVID if you’re vaccinated “

    Associated Press – Pandemic 3 years later: Has the COVID-19 virus won?

    On the third anniversary of the COVID-19 pandemic, the virus is still spreading and the death toll is nearing 7 million worldwide. Yet most people have resumed their normal lives, thanks to a wall of immunity built from infections and vaccines.

    The virus appears here to stay, along with the threat of a more dangerous version sweeping the planet.

    “New variants emerging anywhere threaten us everywhere,” said virus researcher Thomas Friedrich of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. “Maybe that will help people to understand how connected we are.”

    With information sources drying up, it has become harder to keep tabs on the pandemic. Johns Hopkins University on Friday shut down its trusted tracker, which it started soon after the virus emerged in China and spread worldwide.

    Saturday marks three years since the World Health Organization first called the outbreak a pandemic on March 11, 2020, and the United Nation’s health organization says it’s not yet ready to say the emergency has ended.

    A look at where we stand:


    With the pandemic still killing 900 to 1,000 people a day worldwide, the stealthy virus behind COVID-19 hasn’t lost its punch. It spreads easily from person to person, riding respiratory droplets in the air, killing some victims but leaving most to bounce back without much harm.

    “Whatever the virus is doing today, it’s still working on finding another winning path,” said Dr. Eric Topol, head of Scripps Research Translational Institute in California.

    We’ve become numb to the daily death toll, Topol says, but we should view it as too high. Consider that in the United States, daily hospitalizations and deaths, while lower than at the worst peaks, have not yet dropped to the low levels reached during summer 2021 before the delta variant wave.

    At any moment, the virus could change to become more transmissible, more able to sidestep the immune system or more deadly. Topol said we’re not ready for that. Trust has eroded in public health agencies, furthering an exodus of public health workers. Resistance to stay-at-home orders and vaccine mandates may be the pandemic’s legacy.

    “I wish we united against the enemy — the virus — instead of against each other,” Topol said.


    There’s another way to look at it. Humans unlocked the virus’ genetic code and rapidly developed vaccines that work remarkably well. We built mathematical models to get ready for worst-case scenarios. We continue to monitor how the virus is changing by looking for it in wastewater.

    “The pandemic really catalyzed some amazing science,” said Friedrich.

    The achievements add up to a new normal where COVID-19 “doesn’t need to be at the forefront of people’s minds,” said Natalie Dean, an assistant professor of biostatistics at Emory University. “That, at least, is a victory.”

    Dr. Stuart Campbell Ray, an infectious disease expert at Johns Hopkins, said the current omicron variants have about 100 genetic differences from the original coronavirus strain. That means about 1% of the virus’ genome is different from its starting point. Many of those changes have made it more contagious, but the worst is likely over because of population immunity.

    Matthew Binnicker, an expert in viral infections at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, said the world is in “a very different situation today than we were three years ago — where there was, in essence, zero existing immunity to the original virus.”

    That extreme vulnerability forced measures aimed at “flattening the curve.” Businesses and schools closed, weddings and funerals were postponed. Masks and “social distancing” later gave way to showing proof of vaccination. Now, such precautions are rare.

    “We’re not likely to go back to where we were because there’s so much of the virus that our immune systems can recognize,” Ray said. Our immunity should protect us “from the worst of what we saw before.”


    On Friday, Johns Hopkins did its final update to its free coronavirus dashboard and hot-spot map with the death count standing at more than 6.8 million worldwide. Its government sources for real-time tallies had drastically declined. In the U.S., only New York, Arkansas and Puerto Rico still publish case and death counts daily.

    “We rely so heavily on public data and it’s just not there,” said Beth Blauer, data lead for the project.

    The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention still collects a variety of information from states, hospitals and testing labs, including cases, hospitalizations, deaths and what strains of the coronavirus are being detected. But for many counts, there’s less data available now and it’s been less timely.

    “People have expected to receive data from us that we will no longer be able to produce,” said the CDC’s director, Dr. Rochelle Walensky.

    Internationally, the WHO’s tracking of COVID-19 relies on individual countries reporting. Global health officials have been voicing concern that their numbers severely underestimate what’s actually happening and they do not have a true picture of the outbreak.

    For more than year, CDC has been moving away from case counts and testing results, partly because of the rise in home tests that aren’t reported. The agency focuses on hospitalizations, which are still reported daily, although that may change. Death reporting continues, though it has become less reliant on daily reports and more on death certificates — which can take days or weeks to come in.

    U.S. officials say they are adjusting to the circumstances, and trying to move to a tracking system somewhat akin to how CDC monitors the flu.


    “I wish we could go back to before COVID,” said Kelly Forrester, 52, of Shakopee, Minnesota, who lost her father to the disease in May 2020, survived her own bout in December and blames misinformation for ruining a longtime friendship. “I hate it. I actually hate it.”

    The disease feels random to her. “You don’t know who will survive, who will have long COVID or a mild cold. And then other people, they’ll end up in the hospital dying.”

    Forrester’s father, 80-year-old Virgil Michlitsch, a retired meat packer, deliveryman and elementary school custodian, died in a nursing home with his wife, daughters and granddaughters keeping vigil outside the building in lawn chairs.

    Not being at his bedside “was the hardest thing,” Forrester said.

    Inspired by the pandemic’s toll, her 24-year-old daughter is now getting a master’s in public health.

    “My dad would have been really proud of her,” Forrester said. “I’m so glad that she believed in it, that she wanted to do that and make things better for people.”

    Destigmatizing and Mobilizing COVID-19 Vaccines in Pakistan

    Women health workers in Pakistan are increasing access to life-saving care, especially in remote areas, by meeting other women where they are with COVID-19 vaccination services and information.

    Riffat Hafeez is a social mobilizer in District Charsadda, where she organizes house visits and awareness sessions for women in her community to combat misinformation about and deliver vaccines.

    Training for these social mobilizers is just one of the many services that the USAID Integrated Health Systems Strengthening and Service Delivery (IHSS-SD) Activity in collaboration with the Government of Pakistan provides to strengthen the health system at the community level and deliver more equitable health services.

    Women health workers like Riffat are critical to the Activity’s support for a healthier and more secure Pakistan.

  10. Jane Fonda Says Pro-Lifers Need to Be Murdered for Their Beliefs on Abortion (VIDEO)
    By Cristina Laila Mar. 10, 2023 12:32 pm837 Comments

    Hanoi” Jane Fonda on Friday said pro-life activists and politicians should be murdered for their beliefs on abortion during an appearance on ABC’s “The View.”

    “Besides marching and protesting, what else do you suggest?” Joy Behar queried.

    “MURDER.” – Jane Fonda said.

    “What did you say?” Tomlin asked.

    In 1972 “Hanoi” Jane Fonda applauded an NVA anti-aircraft gun crew during her trip to North Vietnam. These guns were used to shoot down American planes and contributed to the deaths of American Airmen.

    Jane Fonda once said, “If you understood what communism was, you would hope, you would pray on your knees that we would some day become communist.”

    (Richard: Hanoi Jane, a name that should be remembered for treason and other crimes, is now advocating murder of the people who believe in the sanctity of human life. Her actions during and after Nam show that she is a far left nut that hates the US. Her current actions prove that she hasn’t changed since she worked to betray the people in South Vietnam into slavery. Never forget that she and the other war protesters have the blood of the one million plus people that the communists murdered after they seized control on her hands. She also has the blood of the one million plus people who drowned trying to reach the islands if the first and second island chains on her hands. Some of the war protesters apologized for their actions but she doesn’t think her support of murderous tyrants is wrong. She thinks she is superior to the rest of us and is incapable of making mistakes. This belief has morphed into the belief that anyone who doesn’t think like her is so evil they don’t deserve to live.

    This attitude is common among the leftist Leaders of both of our countries. This is why they will never peacefully accept a political loss that removes them from power. We are not near the end of this war of survival but we are approaching the end of the beginning phase of the war.)

  11. Proud Boy Dominic Pezzola Calls Gateway Pundit with Explosive Developments from Proud Boys Trial – FBI Lied and Guess Who Ignited the Violence on J6? (AUDIO)
    By Jim Hoft Mar. 10, 2023 3:14 pm55 Comments

    The government’s fabricated case against the Proud Boys was suspended until next week after the defense attorneys were accidentally given information from DOJ lawyers that shows the US government was deleting evidence, hiding documents and spying on the prisoners while they were speaking with their attorneys.

    Of course, all of those actions are illegal.

    On Friday morning J6 political prisoner Dominic Pezzola called The Gateway Pundit to give us an update on the case. The case was postponed until next week so that the government can plot how to handle the fact that they were caught spying and deleting evidence.

    Dominic was arrested on January 15, 2021, and appeared in court that same day. He pleaded not guilty to 1-11 counts against him on February 9th and then again on May 29th. Dominic Pezzola remains detained in the DC Gulag, a political prisoner of the left. He has not been given his Constitutional right of a speedy trial. The DOJ does not believe in the US Constitution.

    Proud Boys member Dominic Pezzola has been held in solitary confinement for 90% of his time in prison after he broke a window at the US Capitol. Dominic has been held at in prison for 27 months now. He was not given his discovery for days after the trial started.

    Pezzola faces possibly 20 years in prison for breking a window and several manufactured charges by Merrick Garland’s DOJ.

    Dominic told The Gateway Pundit on Friday exactly what was found in the secret documents the government leaked to the Proud Boys attorneys.

    Dominic: We came across messages of this agent, her boss, telling her to delete 360 or 380 different lines of evidence that were supposed to go to us. So we caught them hiding evidence, destroying evidence. We also caught them. There was another message saying, take my name off the CHS documents. So now they’re altering evidence…

    …We actually came across the message that said, we want you to destroy 300 and something lines of evidence. That was a message we read with our own eyes.

  12. Democrat Boston Mayor Michelle Wu Accused of Discrimination Against White People
    By Margaret Flavin Mar. 10, 2023 2:00 pm217 Comments

    Democrat Boston Mayor Michelle Wu is facing another racial controversy.

    At an event in 2022 Wu said, “This past winter was pretty intense, trial by snow, trial by firefighters union. I’m getting used to dealing with problems that are expensive, disruptive, and white – I’m talking about snowflakes, snowstorms, snowflakes!”

    In a virtual signaling move in early February, Wu announced the creation of a ‘Reparations Task Force’ which will look into the issue of reparations for black residents.

    Wu is so disliked, The Gateway Pundit reported on her push for a law to stop protests outside her home during off hours.

    Now, owners of five restaurants in Boston allege they have been discriminated against by Wu because of their White, Italian heritage.

    Newsweek reports:

    The legal dispute stems from the levying of a fee on restaurants in the North End area—which is known for its Italian heritage—for placing tables outside for outdoor dining. Court documents cited a joke she made in a St Patrick’s Day speech on March 17, 2022, in which she said: “I’m getting used to dealing with problems that are expensive, disruptive and white.”

    The complaint perpetuates a broader debate about what should be considered discrimination amid a shifting sense of power felt among different communities. A May 2022 poll found that 40 percent of Americans felt there was more discrimination against white people than there was five years ago.

    The legal challenge was refiled this year after an initial one was dismissed by a judge in October following a motion to dismiss the case by the city government.

    In 2022, Wu ordered that restaurants in the area that wanted to have outdoor dining for that summer would have to apply for a license to do so, which would cost $7,500, and the use of parking spaces would cost an additional $480 per space used.

    Court documents state that the order didn’t apply to other restaurants elsewhere in Boston, noting that there were at least 114 restaurants in the nearby vicinity with outdoor dining, a majority of which were not charged for a license. Some 15 percent of all city licenses were given to restaurants in the North End.

  13. Russia: US Biolabs Still Working on Dangerous Pathogens in Ukraine
    By Richard Abelson Mar. 10, 2023 1:37 pm258 Comments

    US-funded biological research laboratories continue to operate in Ukraine in spite of official statements indicating that they had been deactivated, the Russian Ministry Defense said on Friday.

    According to the commander of Russia’s Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Defense Forces, Lieutenant General Igor Kirillov, Moscow has obtained documents that suggest Kiev has continued to coordinate with the Pentagon in the military biological field, including the transfer of pathogenic biomaterials. Kirillov pointed to an official appeal from Pentagon contractor ch2m-hill to Ukrainian companies participating in a “program to counter particularly dangerous pathogens in Ukraine.”

    “The document reports on the Defense Threat Reduction Agency’s (DTRA) biological program in Ukraine and outlines future tasks, such as consolidating collections of dangerous pathogens and deploying systems for managing bio risks and monitoring the epidemiological situation”, accoring to Russia Today.

    Kirillov claimed that, in January 2023, the government of Ukraine published new requirements for “accounting, storage, transportation and destruction” of pathogens, which included instructions for the

    I can’t believe I’m saying this, but for the first time in history, US Senator Lindsey Graham is right. Lindsey is a warmonger. He’s never met a war he didn‘t support. He loves the war in Ukraine. Lindsey would love us fighting endless wars across the globe forever.

    And then (of course) Lindsey’s friends in the defense industry would get filthy rich forever. You know- like Pfizer, Moderna and all the vaccine makers. It pays to have good friends in the DC Swamp.

    This is what politicians do. They fight for endless wars and endless vaccines and endless green energy boondoggles- so that the companies who give them legal bribes (donations) and illegal bribes (in offshore accounts) make out like bandits…with your taxpayer money.

  16. UC Davis Professor Who Called for Cops to be Killed Wants TPUSA Event to Be Cancelled-Suggests it is Time to “Teach Charlie Kirk a Lesson”
    By Margaret Flavin Mar. 10, 2023 4:45 pm121 Comments

    A professor at University of California-Davis, Josh Clover, is calling for an upcoming Turning Point USA event to be cancelled and makes the troubling suggestion that it is time to “teach Charlie Kirk a lesson.”

    This from a professor on a campus that saw violent thugs shut down a Milo Yiannopoulos’ speech on campus in 2017.

    Clover penned an opinion piece for The California Aggie.

    In the self-indulgent screed, Clover writes, “The Great Replacement Bro is coming here to recruit on March 14, on behalf of an organization openly hostile to education as it exists, and hostile to UC Davis education in specific. There is no moral defense for this. And the hand-wringing legalistic requirement… doesn’t exist. It is worth recalling that confronting Yiannopoulos and Spencer would, it was widely said at the time, play right into their hands, granting them free publicity, free clicks. We know now that the ethical and uncompromising decision to chase them off campus was instead part of a sequence that effectively ended the political careers of both. History is educational that way. And this is a university after all. Perhaps it is time to teach Charlie Kirk a lesson.”

    And while he wrings his hands and falsely labels Kirk, Professor Watch List reports on Clover’s very troubling public comments.

    Joshua Clover is a professor of English at the University of California, Davis, and specializes in “critical theory, Marxism, political theory, political economy, poetry, and poetics.”

    A signatory to the US Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel, Clover has compared Israel to Nazi Germany and described it as an “eliminationist ethnostate.” A self-described communist, Clover has cited his world view as justification for the destruction of Israel as a state.

    I hope it will be uncontroversial if I say that Israel should be ended.

    The climate activists of Extinction Rebellion are planning to again block the A12 motorway from midday, while farmers who oppose the government’s plans to limit nitrogen-based pollution are gathering at the Zuiderpark, outside the city centre.

    Extinction Rebellion expects some 2,000 people to take part in its protest and said it is pressing ahead with the plan to close the road, even though the council has said it will not accept the action.

    The council has also told the Farmers Defence Force that it may only bring two tractors to the Zuiderpark demonstration several kilometres away. It had been planning to come with hundreds as has happened in previous years.

    The Zuiderpark has been earmarked for the demo because the Malieveld, close to the parliamentary complex, is being prepared for Sunday’s City Pier City run. The FDF has said it ‘will probably’ keep to the council’s rules, news website reported.


    Nevertheless, the army is on standby to block roads if more tractors attempt to enter the city.

    ‘If that happens, it will be up to the police to intervene,’ a council spokesman said. City officials are advising people who want to visit The Hague on Saturday to come by public transport.

    REBEL NEWS – Organizer says Dutch govt is ‘blocking’ farmers’ major protest

    ‘More and more they take our civil rights, like today, they are blocking our protest in all kinds of ways with bureaucracy,’ says Mark van den Oever, the organizer behind a farmers protest set for this Saturday in the Netherlands.

    The Dutch government is pushing ahead with its radical nitrogen emissions policies, which Dutch farmers say will damage their industry.

    Despite widespread protest last year, which we here at Rebel News brought you through, and several months of back and forth negotiations between the farmers and Dutch government, a mutual agreement on tackling nitrogen emissions hasn’t been found.

    Prime Minister Mark Rutte’s government has refused to backdown on nitrogen emissions targets, and this has prompted the farmers to come on protesting again.
