  1. Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter for $40B+ is often cited as evidence that he is not part of the globalist agenda. But if we can consider money in a different light we may find a different meaning for Musk’s action. If we compare money to life as life was perceived by Stalin (or any other collectivist monster) we gain a different perspective. If the loss of one life is tragic, but the loss of 10 or 20 million a statistic, we come to understand how murder becomes a very useful tool for those without conscience. And once we understand that psychopaths exist as a human statistical fact among our political and business leaders we quickly become less naive. Maiming or killing millions of people with an experimental flu injection is only the current example of the psychopathic disregard for life perpetuated via our pandemic of the propagandized.

    In money terms what is a billion dollars? What is $40B? What is a trillion? One trillion dollars, if converted to seconds, is 31,709.8 years. The meaning of money for those who are wealthy beyond our imaginations is different. Our loss of a million dollars, if we were so skilled and lucky to amass as much, would likely be a tragic personal event. For those in the globalist league money departs its harbour representing mere safety and sustenance, to embark upon the high seas of globalist adventure if its holder has the superiority complex that compels it to change the world. Money becomes sprayable from a hose, watering the interests of power, revolution and control. In fact, it is easy to fathom the super rich convincing themselves of their obligation to follow Agenda 2030 for the collective good of humanity (so long as they’ve still got theirs, so to speak.)

    Elon Musk need not have the psycopathy of a Stalin to subscribe to the world view that change is an inevitable consequence of accelerating technological advancement. He may also hold the view that the loss of a loaf of bread is a tragedy for a starving man, while the expense of $40b is only a statistical forfeiture needed to advance world media toward a new-world position. And I doubt he acts alone, like some renegade genius cowboy, because this would represent hope on my part and I don’t believe hope is a viable tool of understanding.

    The meaning of money, like the meaning of life, gets lost in numbers.

    • Musk is sending mixed signals on what he is doing and why he is doing it. What is probably the best guess is, he understands that he will make more money and gain more power in a free society then in a closed, controlled society.

      I may be wrong but Occam’s Razor is the best tool we have to find the answer to what is his motive.

    • DEUTSCHE PRAVDA – How mRNA could help fight deadly cancer

      The Covid-19 pandemic traumatized people and societies, but it also spurred medical advances in a very big way.

      Perhaps nowhere as much as in the field of vaccines, where a groundbreaking new platform based on molecules called messenger RNA saved millions of lives.

      Now the technology is coming into its own in other areas, like as a possible treatment for another killer: pancreatic cancer.

      We talk about this with Derrick Williams from DW science and ask him: How likely is it that mRNA will lead to a successful cancer treatment? And what obstacles are still left to overcome?

      • Israel has been working on RNA treatment for cancer for over two decades. Deadly cancers for which there are no effective treatments.

        Which is why I was initially less worried about a vaxx being delivered on this platform…

        …After maybe 25 years of tinkering and clinical testing; ONLY for untreatable, deadly infectious diseases.

    • 7000 people join WHO’s fourth Walk the Talk Geneva event

      WHO staged its fourth Walk the Talk: Health for All Challenge event in Geneva on 21 May 2023. The free, public event promoted the importance of physical activity, healthy lifestyles and collaboration for health.

      It was held on the eve of the 76th World Health Assembly and in conjunction with WHO’s 75th anniversary.

      Dancers Sherrie Silver, The Quick Style and Lukresia Robai performed for the crowd, the Global Scrubs Choir of healthworkers from around the world sang, and warm-ups, yoga and other activities were provided by the University Hospital of Geneva, the Mexican Mission in Geneva, and a many other partners.

      Olympians Derartu Tulu, Paul Tergat and Danielle Alakija staged a master running class.
      Speeches were delivered by Dr Tedros, WHO Director-General, former Prime Minister of New Zealand, Jacinda Ardern, the President of Geneva Canton Mauro Poggia, and Didier Fischer, President of the Group Grenat Foundation.

      Canada’s COVID-19 vaccination programs took a unique approach in several ways.

      During the pandemic, we saw shifts in federal rather than provincial purchasing, speed of authorization and implementation, expanding and changing vaccine recommendations over relatively short time frames, and extremely diverse programs throughout the country despite centralized recommendations from a well-established advisory committee, the National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI).

  2. Here We Go: Police Find Nazi Flag in U-Haul Truck that Crashed into Barrier Near the White House (Video)
    By Kristinn Taylor May. 23, 2023 12:19 am650 Comments

    Police investigators pulled an apparent Nazi flag from a U-Haul truck crashed into a barrier near the White House Monday night. Eyewitnesses say the truck was driven twice into a barrier before stopping. The incident took place at the north side of Lafayette Park at 16th and H St, NW. Police laid out the flag on the sidewalk near the truck, apparently for the media to film, before folding it up and taking it away.

    The driver was detained by Secret Service officers. There were no reported injuries. Several nearby buildings, including two hotels–the Hay Adams and Sofitel–were evacuated as a precaution. A robot was sent to inspect the truck for explosives.

    A photo of the flag was posted by WUSA-TV reporter Troy Pope.

  3. PURE EVIL. Leaked Memo Shows Biden Regime is Ending DNA Testing of Children at The Border to Stop Child Trafficking
    By Jordan Conradson May. 23, 2023 7:30 am45 Comments

    The Biden Regime will end DNA testing at the Southern Border to ensure vulnerable children are not being trafficked by Mexican cartels, according to a newly leaked US Customs and Border Protection memo.

    This Trump-era policy was enacted to prevent child exploitation and trafficking by illegal aliens.

    According to a new report, “as many as 1 in 10 of children tested turned out not to be related to the illegal aliens who were crossing with them.”

    Kari Lake tweeted,

    30% of children brought across the border are trafficked by people with zero relation to them. Many are raped, sold and even killed.

    The only way to ensure these kids are actually with family members is DNA testing. President Trump enacted testing to SAVE LIVES and keep children from living a nightmare.

    The Biden Regime just announced that they will end this policy, effectively handing children over to human/sex traffickers and dooming them to a lifetime of the most unimaginable things you can imagine.

    Joe Biden is a cruel, cruel man.
    And the people that empower him are just as evil

    The Dodgers previously removed the vulgar, anti-Christian, Marxist group from their honoree list.

    After backlash from the group, the Dodgers decided to re-invite them back on the field June 16 for pride night.

    “After much thoughtful feedback from our diverse communities, honest conversations within the Los Angeles Dodgers organization and generous discussions with the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, the Los Angeles Dodgers would like to offer our sincerest apologies to the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, members of the LGBTQ+ community and their friends and families,” the Dodgers said Monday night.

  5. Disney Begins Third Round of Layoffs – 2,500 Jobs Cut and More Coming This Summer
    By Mike LaChance May. 22, 2023 9:40 pm227 Comments

    Disney has just launched its third round of layoffs, with 2,500 job cuts.

    Despite objections from the public about pushing woke politics, the company has remained defiant, even doubling down on LGBT and social justice issues.

    The people who run Disney seem to want to die on this hill and the company just might do that.

    REPORT: Disney expected to sack over 2,500 in third round of layoffs

    A third wave of layoffs is taking place at Disney, expected to end with more than 2,500 staff being fired, according to CNN.

    The layoffs come after the company announced last week that it was canceling its $1 billion Lake Nona project and closing its Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser resort hotel.

    It also follows the first round of layoffs in March and a second wave in April.

    While it’s not yet known which divisions will be impacted by the latest round of layoffs, CNN reported that the total number of jobs cut would is predicted to be over 6,500, nearly reaching the 7,000 goal set by Disney CEO Robert Iger.

  7. Jim Jordan Vows Scrutiny of Durham Report Findings – Threatens to Cut FBI Funding and Reopen Hillary Clinton Investigation (VIDEO)
    By Jim Hoft May. 22, 2023 9:00 pm371 Comments

    Jim Jordan/Fox News
    House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) announced on Sunday that the committee would closely examine individuals mentioned in the recently released Durham report.

    Jordan emphasized that “nothing is off the table” when it comes to potential investigations, even going as far as threatening to cut FBI funding and reopen investigations related to Hillary Clinton and others.

    “The Durham Report comes out and tells us that the FBI had no probable cause, no predicate, no evidence whatsoever, and yet they launch into an investigation of President Trump and his campaign,” Jordan told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo.

    “I think the Durham Report’s best line was, “failed in their fundamental mission of fidelity to the law.” They didn’t follow the law.”

    “What we’re going to have to do is say, hey, FBI, you can’t use federal tax dollars. You can’t use the American tax dollars for this kind of activity. We got to limit how they spend the money, maybe even limit them,” said Jordan when asked how to fix the FBI’s abuse of authority.

    Regarding claims that Hillary Clinton was taking money from foreigners for her Clinton Global Initiative, Jordan said, “We’re going to talk with our lawyers. We’re going to talk with Speaker McCarthy on where we proceed from here.”

    Adding”In fact, are there people that were highlighted in the Durham investigation and the Durham Report that we need to talk to on the Judiciary Committee? We’re going to give that a good, hard look, but nothing is off the table.”


    Special Counsel John Durham released his final report concluding the FBI had no verified intel when it opened the Crossfire Hurricane investigation into Trump in 2016.

    “Neither U.S. law enforcement nor the Intelligence Community appears to have possessed any actual evidence of collusion in their holdings at the commencement of the Crossfire Hurricane investigation,” Durham wrote in a 300-plus page report sent to Congress.

    According to John Durham’s report, Hillary Clinton’s plan to link Trump’s campaign to Russia was briefed by former CIA Director John Brennan to Barack Obama and Joe Biden in August 2016.

    The FBI suddenly dropped FOUR investigations into Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation ahead of the 2016 election.

    The FBI was investigating claims the Clinton Foundation was a hub of “criminal activity,” according to a review by The New York Post.

    It turns out the FBI investigations into the Clintons were all for show.

    TGP reported earlier Biden’s corrupt Justice Department shut down their ‘investigation’ into the Clinton Foundation in August 2021, according to FOIA documents obtained by the New York Times.

    The FBI then ‘returned’ or destroyed all of the evidence.

    • The Clinton Foundation got $120 million from the taxpayers of Norway via its communist PM, the current Sec-Gen of NATO, Jens Stoltenberg.

      The same guy who got his far-left govt to award the Kenyan Potus a Nobel Prize.

      Layers and layers of corruption. I have a file on this Stoltenberg. Exceptionally dirty. Funny, some of the most interesting bits from over a decade ago have vanished.

      But here’s one by J.E. Dyer on {NATO + Patriot missiles + Turkey} from 2015. Events in Ukraine over the last couple weeks give it unusual resonance.

  9. New York Democrats Vote to GIVE THE STATE FREE REIN OVER MINOR CHILDREN = NYS Assembly So-Called “Health Committee” Votes YES to Allow Minors to TAKE DRUGS with NO PARENTAL CONSENT! MUST-SEE VIDEO of Furious Parents Telling off POLITICAL HACKS at Hearing!
    By Cara Castronuova May. 23, 2023 8:45 am1 Comment

    The Democrats in the New York State Assembly are bent set on giving the Government free rein to inject your child with whatever Big Brother deems necessary. Why would these Democrats, many of them parents themselves, give the government the power to inject even their own children behind their backs? Please read the article below by guest writers Michael Kane of “Teachers for Choice” and John Gilmore of “Autism Action Network”. Remember, this can happen outside of New York and California if YOU do not get involved in local government and stay on top of the laws that these compromised politicians are sneaking in.

    For the first time, New York parents will be completely cut out of knowing what vaccines are injected into their kids, if Assembly Bill A276B becomes law.

    On May 16, Assembly Bill A276B was passed out of the Health Committee in Albany, NY. The bill allows minors to consent to any vaccine or drug-related to STD prevention without parental knowledge or consent. This includes the controversial HPV vaccine Gardasil which is not required to attend any school in New York. This bill has been around for nearly 14 years carried by Assemblywoman Amy Paulin the entire time, yet has never been able to pass a committee vote.

    The office of the secretary of state in Colorado has ‘mistakenly’ sent a postcard to 30,000 illegal immigrants encouraging them to register to vote.

    This must have been a completely innocent mistake, right?

      No. It’s the consensus of alt-right, pro-Russian media. As if singing from the same hymnal. Preening themselves as independent journalists.

      They argue that Eurotrash leaders are helpless slaves to the USA, a bully running NATO over their limp bodies. It’s ‘Merica calling the shots – literally.

      No. This the agenda of Globalist, Inc., NOT the dictates of villainous Uncle Sam. Nothing helpless AT ALL about Stoltenberg or Von der Leyen. Same ilk as BoJo, Freeland, Trudeau, Arden, and – of course – their counterparts here in the USA. (They’re all seasoned Color Revolution-meisters. All conspired to take down PTrump.)

      This is a set up: Cut the USA out of the Mackinder Heartland, Eurasia inherits the Mandate of Heaven.

      This set of talking points provides Europe with a bridge out of disaster. They can cry – We were abused! Then Russia and China can welcome them with open arms, shelter them at the new cool kids’ lunch table.

  14. A SECOND Hunter Biden IRS Whistleblower Emerges After Being Fired – Biden Regime Threatens to Criminally Prosecute Whistleblower
    By Cullen Linebarger May. 23, 2023 9:45 am131 Comments

    The Gateway Pundit previously reported that an IRS whistleblower came forward to allege the Biden regime was mishandling the criminal investigation into Hunter Biden and giving him special treatment.

    In 2020 Hunter Biden revealed that he was under investigation by the feds over his taxes.

    The Regime responded to the IRS whistleblower’s bravery by having him and his entire team removed the investigation last Monday.

    The Washington Examiner has revealed that a second whistleblower has now emerged confirming the allegations of special treatment by the Biden “Justice” Department and IRS corruption. Biden’s IRS responded by threatening to prosecute him according to a letter obtained the Examiner written by the whistleblower’s lawyers.

    The Examiner reported,“Our client learned that one of the agents he supervises — the case agent on the case our client is blowing the whistle on — sent you an email” on Thursday in which the IRS case agent raised concerns about the Hunter Biden investigation, the lawyers wrote in a letter obtained by the Washington Examiner from congressional sources. But IRS leadership quickly responded “with accusations of criminal conduct and warnings to other agents in an apparent attempt to intimidate into silence anyone who might raise similar concerns.”

    The whistleblower was then removed from the Hunter Biden case. The sole reason for the removal was for “doing the right thing” and properly investigating Hunter.

    The New York Post has more

    The second whistleblower, who worked on the probe since 2018, wrote in an email Thursday to seven senior IRS officials, including Commissioner Daniel Werfel, that he believes he was removed for doing the “right thing,” including raising internal alarms about the Justice Department “acting inappropriately.”

    “As I’m sure you were aware, I was removed this week from a highly sensitive case … after nearly 5 years of work. I was not afforded the opportunity of a phone call directly from my [Special Agent in Charge] or [Assistant Special Agent in Charge], even though this had been my investigation since the start,” the new whistleblower wrote.

    “There is a human impact to the decisions being made that no one in the government seems to care about or understand,” the 13-year veteran of the agency added.

    “I … have spent thousands of hours on the case, worked to complete 95% of the investigation, have sacrificed sleep/vacations/gray hairs etc., my husband and I (identifying me as the case agent) were publicly outed and ridiculed on social media due to our sexual orientation, and to ultimately be removed for always trying to do the right thing, is unacceptable in my opinion,” he wrote.

    Polarizing NASCAR star Bubba Wallace has found himself at the center of yet another controversy — and it’s one that is eerily reminiscent of his most infamous incident.

    Allegations, seemingly confirmed by Wallace’s team, have surfaced that someone hijacked the team radio during Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series All-Star Race at North Wilkesboro Speedway in North Carolina.

    The radio interloper allegedly made a disparaging comment about Wallace — the only full-time driver in the Cup Series who is black — not belonging in NASCAR.

    Wallace hadn’t commented publicly on the alleged incident as of Monday afternoon, but his team, 23XI Racing, confirmed with that someone had keyed into the team radio channel.

    An aggressive pro-abortion professor at Hunter College in New York City was caught on video vandalizing a pro-life table, cursing at students, and accusing them of “violence.”
    Adjunct professor Shellyne Rodriguez is seen in the video published on Monday by Students for Life America, accusing the two students of being “triggering” and exhibiting “violent” behavior.

    Ironically, the students were simply handing out literature, while she ultimately vandalized their materials.

    • Russian Defence Ministry: more than 70 saboteurs who infiltrated Belgorod region eliminated

      The Russian Defence Ministry for the first time has issued a comment on the 22 May attack carried out by a “sabotage and reconnaissance group” on Russia’s Belgorod region.

      In its latest bulletin, the ministry said that “nationalist units were blocked and defeated. The rest of the sabotage party was pushed back into Ukraine “where they were targeted by firearms until full elimination”. In total, “more than 70 Ukrainian terrorists, four combat armoured vehicles, and five pickup trucks” were neutralised, the ministry noted.

      The news emerged this morning that a woman born in 1941 died during the evacuation mission from the Grayvoron district in the Belgorod region, Governor Vyacheslav Gladkov reported. According to Gladkov, there are reports about two locals injured in the settlements where a “Ukrainian army sabotage and reconnaissance group” made an incursion but they can’t be reached yet. “The mopping-up of the territory by the Defence Ministry and law enforcement agencies continues,” the official added.

      Gladkov noted that 12 civilians were injured in the attacks on settlements in the region located on the Ukrainian border in the past 24 hours.


      AP – WaPo – Russia claims it repelled one of war’s most serious cross-border attacks

      KYIV, Ukraine — Russia’s military said Tuesday it quashed what appeared to be one of the most serious cross-border attacks from Ukraine since the war began, claiming to have killed more than 70 attackers in a battle that lasted around 24 hours.

      Moscow blamed the raid that began Monday on Ukrainian military saboteurs. Kyiv portrayed it as an uprising against the Kremlin by Russian partisans. It was impossible to reconcile the two versions, to say with certainty who was behind the attack or to ascertain its aims.

      The battle — which took place in southwest Russia’s Belgorod region, about 80 kilometers (45 miles) north of the city of Kharkiv, in eastern Ukraine — was a fresh reminder of how Russia itself remains vulnerable to attack, along with Russian-occupied regions of Ukraine.

      The region is a Russian military hub holding fuel and ammunition depots and was included in Russian President Vladimir Putin’s order last year to increase the state of readiness for attacks and improve defenses.

      Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov refused to say how many attackers were involved in the assault or comment on why efforts to put down the attackers took so long.

      Such cross-border attacks embarrass the Kremlin and highlight the struggles it faces in its bogged-down invasion of Ukraine.

      The Belgorod region, like the neighboring Bryansk region and other border areas, has witnessed sporadic spillover from the war, which Russia started by invading Ukraine in February 2022.

      Far from the 1,500-kilometer (932-mile) front line in southern and eastern Ukraine, Russian border towns and villages regularly come under shelling and drone attacks, but this week’s attack is the second in recent months that also appears to have involved an incursion by ground forces. Another difference from earlier cross-border attacks is that Russia’s effort to repel it continued into a second day for the first time.

      Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov claimed local troops, air strikes and artillery routed the attackers.

      “The remnants of the nationalists were driven back to the territory of Ukraine, where they continued to be hit by fire until they were completely eliminated,” Konashenkov said, without providing evidence. He did not mention any Russian casualties.

      Russian forces destroyed four armored combat vehicles and five pickup trucks the attackers used, he said. Local officials alleged the invaders also used drones and artillery.

      The governor of the Belgorod region, Vyacheslav Gladkov, said the raid targeted the rural area around Graivoron, a town about 5 kilometers (3 miles) from the border. Twelve civilians were wounded in the attack, he said, and an older woman died during an evacuation.

      The Russian news portal RBK, quoting unidentified sources in the regional interior ministry and territorial police, said Graivoron came under heavy shelling that lasted about five hours early Monday. After that, tanks fired at the Graivoron border checkpoint while the adjacent village of Kozinka came under mortar and rocket fire, RBK said, citing the same sources. Gladkov later reported that a Koznika villager had been killed.

      The attacking force was made up of 10 armored vehicles and an unspecified number of troops, RBK said.

      Earlier Tuesday, the regional governor urged residents who had evacuated not to return home until they received official instructions to do so. He said a “counterterrorism operation” was completed by early Tuesday evening.

      Gladkov also said fire from the Ukrainian side of the border on Tuesday hit the Borisovka area, about 20 kilometers (20 miles) northeast of Graivoron. No casualties were reported, he said without elaborating on the incident.

      The regional governor complained in a video late Tuesday that federal authorities’ claims for the past year that “everything is under control” do not ring true in light of this attack and prior assaults. He appealed again to the Kremlin to strengthen defenses.

      Since the war began, drones, explosions and missiles have hit fuel and ammunition depots, railroad equipment, bridges and air bases on Russian territory and Russia-occupied areas of Ukraine. Assassinations of Russian-appointed government officials and other public figures have also taken place in those areas.

      Ukraine said Russian citizens belonging to murky groups called the Russian Volunteer Corps and the Freedom of Russia Legion were behind the assault.

      Ukrainian Deputy Defense Minister Hanna Maliar said the attackers were Russian dissidents unhappy about Putin’s policies.

      “These are Russian patriots, as we understand it. People who actually rebelled against the Putin regime,” she said.

      The Freedom of Russia Legion said on Telegram the goal was to “liberate” the region.

      The Russian Volunteer Corps implied on Telegram that the attack was over, adding: “One day, we’ll come to stay.” The post went up at around the same time as the Russian Defense Ministry claimed to have quashed the assault.

      The U.K. Defense Ministry said it was “highly likely” that Russian security forces were fighting partisans in at least three locations in Belgorod.

      “Russia is facing an increasingly serious multi-domain security threat in its border regions, with losses of combat aircraft, improvised explosive device attacks on rail lines and now direct partisan action,” it said Tuesday.

      Russia’s Investigative Committee, its top law enforcement agency, announced an investigation into alleged terrorism and attempted murder in connection with the raid.

      Belgorod officials earlier this year said they had spent nearly 10 billion rubles ($125 million; 116 million euros) on fortifications to protect the region.

      Peskov, the Kremlin spokesman, said the raid “elicits deep concerns” and that a “bigger effort” was required to prevent future attacks.

      The Russian Volunteer Corps claimed to have breached the border in early March. The shadowy group describes itself as “a volunteer formation fighting on Ukraine’s side.” It’s not clear if it — or the Freedom of Russia Legion — has any ties with the Ukrainian military.

      Elsewhere, Ukrainian forces made minor progress against Russian forces on the edge of Bakhmut, the eastern Ukrainian city that Moscow claims to have captured, according to Maliar, the Ukrainian deputy defense minister.

      She said Tuesday that Ukrainian troops still controlled the southwestern outskirts of the city and that fighting was continuing in the suburbs, on Russia’s flanks.

      Ukrainian military leaders say the fight in Bakhmut isn’t over.

  20. BREITBART Exclusive: Gaetz Asks Austin and Milley Why Drag Queen Shows are Still Happening on Military Bases

    Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) is demanding to know from Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Army Gen. Mark Milley why drag queen shows and story hours are still happening on military bases — something they both testified they do not support.

    Gaetz wrote in a letter to Austin and Milley regarding an upcoming “family friendly” drag queen event at Nellis Air Force Base scheduled for June 1, “In this latest outright attack on children, this event is being advertised as having no minimum age requirement.”

    He added: “You both testified before the House Armed Service Committee stating: ‘drag shows and drag events are not something the DoD supports or fund’ and ‘I’d like to take a look at that material … I don’t agree with that, these things shouldn’t be happening.’ Given those statements, has this drag event scheduled for June 1, 2023, on Nellis Air Force Base been reviewed and approved by either of you?” he asked.

    […]In his letter, Gaetz listed five specific drag queen events on military bases, along with questions about each event.

    The events included a May 27, 2022, drag queen story hour that was canceled after media attention, a June 17, 2022, drag queen show at Nellis Air Force Base, a June 30, 2022, drag queen story hour and “trivia” at the Malmstrom Air Force Base, a July 30, 2022, “Diversity, Equity, Inclusion Summer Festival” where Navy influencer “Harpy Daniels” performed, and the upcoming drag June 1, 2023, event at Nellis Air Force Base.

    Gaetz also demanded to know more about the Navy’s drag queen ambassador, Yeoman 2nd Class Joshua Kelley, who identifies as “Harpy Daniels” and whether any taxpayer funds went to supporting the Navy’s ambassadorship program.

    • l have the same questions he does. It could be any combination of answers, but in the end it doesn’t matter. Unless this stops fast, we’re looking at nukes for sure.

      I’d say WE are more likely to resort to first use than Russia. As things stand, Russia would beat us in a conventional war. NATO would lose. Westerners running the show sound casual about nuclear war.

      Putin will go to great lengths to spare the lives of ethnic Russians. He’s not going to let his people bleed out in a protracted conventional war. To avoid costly, drawn out battles, he might stage a false flag.

      If Putin were to fall, his replacement would be much more aggressive than he is. That’s not understood here because Putin’s the devil, the epitome of evil.
      Reductive thinking could kill us all.

        • Russia has nuclear primacy, with a wide range of options. We have gallons of spit.

          While we were making Color Revolutions, and Nato was doubling down…
          Pre-emptive nuclear strike a key option, Nato told

          The west must be ready to resort to a preemptive nuclear attack to try to halt the “imminent” spread of nuclear and other weapons of mass destruction, according to a radical manifesto for a new Nato by five of the west’s most senior military officers and strategists.

          Russia’s response has been to invest in asymmetric response capabilities. Hypersonic air-launched missiles, nuclear-powered cruise-missiles, hypersonic glide-craft, a new ACBM platform (now version S-550), and more.

          Rabid brethren across the pond continue to bark: !! Preemptive !!

          Saber-rattling at a country that’s been invaded from the West for hundreds of years is NOT a wise strategy. A country that stretches across 11 time zones.

    Kari Lake held a press conference on Tuesday following her three-day Maricopa County Superior Court trial fighting Maricopa County’s fraudulent mail-in ballot signature verification procedures.

    As revealed at trial by Lake’s attorneys and Maricopa County’s own data, Maricopa County did not accurately verify tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of mail-in signatures; they couldn’t possibly have.

    Judge Peter A. Thompson again ruled in favor of Defendants late last night, claiming that “level one and level two signature review did take place in some fashion.” This is a complete lie and he knows it. But it plays into the Democrat Party’s integrity-free election plans. Anything goes. Everything will be counted.

    A New York City professor who went viral for vandalizing a pro-life table at Hunter College and cursing out students, held a machete to a reporter’s neck.

    Adjunct professor Shellyne Rodriguez was seen in a video published on Monday by Students for Life America, accusing the two students of being “triggering” and exhibiting “violent” behavior.

    “You’re not educating shi-t, this is f-cking propaganda,” Rodriguez says in the video, “What are you going to do like anti-trans next?”

    Shellyne Rodriguez on Tuesday held a machete to a New York Post reporter’s neck and threatened to “chop” him up.

    A New York Post reporter knocked on the door to Shellyne Rodriguez’s NYC apartment on Tuesday.

    The aggressive pro-abortion professor flipped out and threatened the reporter.

    “Get the f*ck away from my door, or I’m gonna chop you up with this machete!” she shouted.

  26. Beef Company CEO: “I’ll Shut Down the Company Before We Ship a Single Bag With mRNA-Injected Meat”

    Quickly but quietly, Big Pharma and various state governments are working to inject beef and dairy cattle with mRNA “vaccines.” The practice has been happening with pork since 2018 and beef is next on the agenda.

    Jason Nelson, CEO of Whole Cows, has been watching the developments closely. His Texas company, which specializes in shelf-stable freeze-dried meat for long-term storage, has vowed to never allow gene therapied cattle to enter the food supply through their products (plus, Gateway Pundit benefits when you purchase from them through this link and the links below).

    “I’ll shut down the company before we ship a single bag of mRNA-injected meat,” he said. “That’s why we’re growing as quickly as possible so we can achieve the buying power to produce large amounts. We’re relatively small now but we want to have a surplus of tens of thousands of bags of beef by 2024.”

    • There seems to be a lot of scary stuff being published about food contaminated by the MRNA vaccines, but so far I have not seen anything that shows that the stuff isn’t destroyed by stomach acid. On the other hand, we do have oral polio vaccines. But it would be good to see some thought given to this, before all the panic mongering.

  28. Illinois Democrats Introduce Legislation to Limit Where Citizens Can File Lawsuits Challenging Constitutionality of State Laws
    By Margaret Flavin May. 23, 2023 11:25 am203 Comments

    Illinois Senate President Don Harmon, a Democrat, introduced legislation that would rewrite the rules on where Illinois residents can file lawsuits challenging the constitutionality of state laws.

    The Cook County Record reports, “To this point, Illinoisans who believe Illinois lawmakers or other officials have passed laws or taken actions that violate the state constitution or their constitutional rights have been authorized to file such challenges in any court in any of the state’s 25 judicial circuits, covering the state’s 102 counties. Such courts are known as courts of general jurisdiction, meaning they are authorized to consider legal disputes involving any subjects not specifically reserved for the Illinois Supreme Court.”

    But House Bill 3062 would change that. Under the new Bill, 23 of the circuit courts currently being utilized would no longer be allowed. Lawsuits could only be brought in Cook County, where Chicago is, or Sangamon County, where the state capital of Springfield sits.

    The conservative media personality sent a cease-and-desist letter to the Draft Tucker PAC, a copy of which was obtained by Mediaite on Monday.

    Harmeet Dhillon, a lawyer representing Carlson, directed the PAC to cease any and all fundraising with the premise of his presidential campaign.

    “It has come to Mr. Carlson’s attention that you are soliciting contributions and donor contact information from the public by representing that the funds will be used to draft Mr. Tucker to run for President in 2024,” the letter said.

    Target Execs Hold EMERGENCY MEETING to Avoid a “Bud Light Situation” After Hiring Trans Satanist to Design Satanic Kids Clothing
    By Jim Hoft May. 23, 2023 5:20 pm50 Comments

    Erik, founder and designer for Abprallen UK and Target Pride collection
    Target is facing a backlash and calls for a boycott after it was revealed that a designer involved in creating their recent woke “Pride” clothing line has made disturbing statements, expressing support for Satanism.

    Abprallen, an LGBT+ company based in London that sells Satanist merchandise and woke statement t-shirts and pins has teamed up with retail giant, Target. Abprallen is owned by a self-proclaimed trans man named Erik.

    “This has been so hard to keep quiet but I can now proudly announce that you can buy Abprallen in US Targets! Part one of the range includes a messenger bag, a tote, and a sweatshirt!” Erik wrote on the brand’s Instagram.

    “These have already got the transphobes infuriated with me and I feel like quite the celebrity to think that they believe this is all some big conspiracy and I have any power to brainwash anyone when I’m just some guy drawing pictures!” the post added.

    Some of the items in the collection include a hoodie with the phrase “cure transphobia not trans people,” a tote bag with the phrase “too queer for here,” and a messenger bag with the phrase “we belong everywhere.”

    Target was shocked to discover that their customer base did not approve of the trans-Satanist children’s clothing line. They were caught off guard.

    Things are so bad that Target execs called an emergency meeting to avoid a “Bud Light Situation.”

    FOX News reported:

    Some southern Target stores were forced by the corporation to move LGBTQ Pride merchandise away from the front of their locations after customer “outrage” to avoid a “Bud Light situation.”

    Many Target locations across the country feature massive June Pride month displays on an annual basis, with items this year ranging from “tuck friendly” bathing suits for transgender people to mugs that say “gender fluid.” But the retail juggernaut has been criticized by some conservatives for the displays, with children’s items particularly irking many customers.

    A Target insider told Fox News Digital that many locations, mostly in rural areas of the South, have relocated Pride sections to avoid the kind of backlash Bud Light has received in recent weeks after using a transgender influencer in a promotional campaign.

    A Target insider said there were “emergency” calls on Friday and that some managers and district senior directors were told to tamp down the Pride sections immediately.

    “We were given 36 hours, told to take all of our Pride stuff, the entire section, and move it into a section that’s a third the size. From the front of the store to the back of the store, you can’t have anything on mannequins and no large signage,” the Target insider said.

    Hunter Biden Faces Call for Key Business Associates in the Arkansas Proceedings
    There is a new and interesting development in Arkansas where attorneys for Lunden Alexis Roberts have prepared a list of witnesses for the upcoming proceedings involving Hunter Biden’s daughter, Navy. As previously discussed, Hunter Biden is seeking to reduce child support payments and has balked at Navy being able to use the Biden name. If successful, this could get a lot worse for Hunter in his alleged efforts to conceal his past income. On the list are business partners at the center of the influence peddling scandal. (Thank you to the reader who sent this possibly prophetic intersection picture).

    On the list are business partners who are connected to millions of dollars acquired from foreign interests in China, Ukraine and other countries. Also on the list is New York City art gallery owner Georges Bergès who continues to sell his art. Bergès has reportedly pushed back on congressional efforts to reveal details on these proceeds and buyers even though former government ethicists have raised concerns over the sales.

    The costs of these proceedings and high-priced legal team would seem to undermine claims of financial distress by Biden. However, by putting his financial worth at issue, Hunter has opened up a new front in battling over the disclosure of his past dealings. Some of his past associates are reportedly cooperating with House investigators in tracking foreign payments.

    Even the Washington Post has belatedly published an editorial admitting that this is all a serious concern over influence peddling. In an editorial titled “Millions flowed to Biden family members. Don’t pretend it doesn’t matter.”

    It was a bittersweet moment for many of us who have been writing about these dealings for years as newspapers like the Post downplayed the scandal or the authenticity of the laptop. Media outlets like National Public Radio (NPR) declared that it “not want to waste our time on stories that are not really stories, and we don’t want to waste the listeners’ and readers’ time on stories that are just pure distractions.” These disclosures have been forced into the public despite the best efforts of the Post and other media. Indeed, recently the Post’s Philip Bump derided the House investigation as a “fishing expedition . . . it’s nearly all innuendo, a big corkboard with lots of pictures but little interconnecting string.” His “witchhunt” attack was then repeated by others at the Post.

    Despite these efforts, Hunter Biden appears to be doing his level best to force the issue in Arkansas. It is not clear if the court will call any of these witnesses. However, since Hunter has put his finances at issue, some disclosures will need to be made.

    As for Navy, she is still uncertain if the court will allow her to use the Biden name despite her father’s efforts to the contrary. While it does not appear that Hunter (who lives in a California mansion and reportedly took a private jet to the last hearing) is financially broke, his actions (and those of the President and First Lady) toward this little girl show a moral deficit and delinquency that is abundantly obvious

  34. ‘These Numbers Are Staggering’: Chinese Migrants Continue To Surge Across Southern Border
    Jennie Taer
    on May 22, 2023
    Border Patrol agents are increasingly seeing Chinese migrants crossing the southern border, according to the latest federal data.
    Migrants from China pay smugglers sometimes tens of thousands of dollars to go to the U.S., according to Border Patrol sources who spoke with the Daily Caller News Foundation.
    “Right now in China there’s extreme pessimism, especially among people in their 20s about the future of their country, so it’s understandable that they’re leaving and they’re trying to get into the United States. And, you know, these are people who are relatively middle class, so it shows you the problems in Chinese society are severe,” China expert Gordon Chang told the DCNF.
    The influx of Chinese migrants crossing the southern border continued through April, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data.

    Border Patrol encountered 3,182 migrants from China at the U.S.-Mexico border in April alone, according to CBP data. Chinese migrants often pay hefty smuggling fees to reach the U.S., where they have been found with large sums of U.S. currency, according to Border Patrol agents who recently spoke with the Daily Caller News Foundation.

    In total, Border Patrol has encountered 9,711 Chinese migrants at the southern border between October 2022 and April, marking an already roughly 393% increase compared to all of fiscal year 2022.

    Migrants from Latin America pay an average of roughly $4,000 each to smugglers, according to a July report from The New York Times.

    Gordon Chang, author of The Coming Collapse of China, a Gatestone Institute distinguished senior fellow, and a member of its advisory board, believes many young Chinese migrants are fleeing China due to a lack of hope for their future in the country, he told the DCNF.

    “Right now in China there’s extreme pessimism, especially among people in their 20s about the future of their country, so it’s understandable that they’re leaving and they’re trying to get into the United States. And, you know, these are people who are relatively middle class, so it shows you the problems in Chinese society are severe. And that to me, suggests that this is going to get worse because these numbers are staggering.”

    Most of the Chinese migrants encountered by Border Patrol so far in fiscal year 2023 are single adults, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data. Legitimate asylum claims must be based on persecution due to religious affiliation, membership in a social group, race, nationality and political party affiliation.

    It’s also possible that some Chinese migrants are nefarious actors, Chang said.

    “When I first saw that the surge in Chinese migrants, that’s the thought that came to my mind that these are either Ministry of State Security agents or Chinese military, who are coming to this country to commit acts of sabotage against the US,” Chang said.

    CBP sent a memo to agency officials in March, warning of a surge in Chinese migrants, according to a copy of the document that the DCNF exclusively obtained.

    “Chinese national apprehensions will continue to rise across the SWB [Southwest border], primarily in Yuma and the Rio Grande Sector, as more Chinese nationals successfully reach the United States to request asylum and information about routes becomes more accessible,” the document stated.

    The document also detailed a smuggling route in which a group of Chinese migrants traveled to Istanbul, where they obtained Mexican visas, flew to Mexico City pretending to be couples and then split off to get to border towns. Migrants are fleeing China due to religious persecution against Christians, the document stated.

    “They don’t say much, just that they left China to escape communism,” a Border Patrol agent who has apprehended some of the Chinese migrants at the southern border told the DCNF.

    “They get interviewed by intel and released,” the agent said.

    Chinese migrants are known to pay smugglers between $15,000 and $30,000 to make the journey, a second Border Patrol agent stationed along the southern border, who requested anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly on the leaked document, previously told the DCNF.

    “[The] majority of them have thousands and thousands of U.S. dollars,” the agent said. “FBI has been called down several times now.”

    “The cartels know and are charging them out the ass what their normal rates are,” the agent added.
