TAIBBI: WITH HUNTER BIDEN EXPOSE, SUPPRESSION IS A BIGGER SCANDAL THAN THE ACTUAL STORY

The incredible decision by Twitter and Facebook to block access to a New York Post story about a cache of emails reportedly belonging to Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s son Hunter, with Twitter going so far as to lock the 200 year-old newspaper out of its own account for over a week, continues to be a major underreported scandal.

The hypocrisy is mind-boggling. Imagine the reaction if that same set of facts involved the New York Times and any of its multitudinous unverifiable “exposes” from the last half-decade: from the similarly-leaked “black ledger” story implicating Paul Manafort, to its later-debunked “repeated contacts with Russian intelligence” story, to its mountain of articles about the far more dubious Steele dossier. Internet platforms for years have balked at intervening at many other sensational “unverified” stories, including ones called into question in very short order:

SOUTH KOREA: 48 DEAD AFTER FLU VACCINATION

The number of South Koreans who have died after getting flu shots has risen to 48, the Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency (KDCA) said on Saturday, adding that the vaccines would continue to reduce the chance of having simultaneous epidemics.

The health authorities said they found no direct link between the deaths and the shots. They plan to carry on with the state-run vaccination programme to try to avoid having to fight both the flu and the coronavirus over the coming winter.

“After reviewing death cases so far, it is not the time to suspend a flu vaccination programme since vaccination is very crucial this year, considering … the COVID-19 outbreaks,” KDCA Director Jeong Eun-kyung told a briefing.

Joe (and Hunter) Biden for Dummies

Joe Biden and his first wife, Neilia, had three children: Hunter, Beau and Naomi.

In 1972, Neilia and Naomi, died in a car accident. Joe eventually married a woman named Jill (his current wife).

He already knew her because she had been Hunter's babysitter at the time of the car accident. (Yeah, THAT seems normal- marry the babysitter). They had a daughter named Ashley. Ashley lives 'a quiet life' and is frequently in and out of rehab for various substance abuse issues.

Now sadly, the sanest, most normal one of the 3 surviving kids, Beau, dies in 2015 from a brain tumor. He had been married to Hailie and they had 2 children, a boy and a girl named Natalie, who was 11 yrs old when her dad died.

Enter Hunter Biden, in 2015, to "comfort" his brother's widow. Mind you, Hunter is married at the time, to Kathleen Biden, since 1993. He starts screwing around with his dead brother's wife in 2015...his wife Kathleen finds out about it and they separate.

COVID-19 as a Weapon. The Crushing of the Disposable Working Class – by Design

The arrogance and brutality of the ruling class – is nothing less than breathtaking.

Let’s begin.

April 9 2020, Business Insider: “Many Americans will not have jobs to return to after the coronavirus pandemic ends, according to former US presidential candidate Andrew Yang”:

“Many Americans will not have jobs to return to after the coronavirus pandemic ends…”

“We’re going to see something like 10 years of change in 10 weeks…”

“The fact is right now this virus is the perfect environment for companies to get rid of people, bring in robots and machines, and figure out how they can operate more efficiently.”

“Universal basic income is going to become the topic, not just here in the United States, but Spain’s adopting a version of a minimum income. Legislatures around Europe are all very, very much focused on this.”

‘Vanity Fair’ Warns ACB Will ‘Execute’ Women for Getting Abortions

Women could be sentenced to death for abortion if Amy Coney Barrett is confirmed, according to one Vanity Fair writer.

The Senate plans to vote to confirm Judge Barrett to the Supreme Court on October 26. In anticipation, Vanity Fair condemned President Trump’s nominee for seeing “a scenario in which abortion should be punishable by death.” In a recent piece riddled with errors, politics correspondent Bess Levin went so far as to argue that Barrett’s confirmation means that women will be “executed” for “choosing what to do with their own bodies.”

“The defining feature of Amy Coney Barrett’s Supreme Court confirmation hearing was her refusal to answer a single question that might actually reveal her opinion,” Levin began on October 23.

The 2020 Election: Nothing Will Change

With the first of three scheduled presidential debates (aka brawl) between President Donald Trump and his opponent, former vice-president Joe Biden, now history, the pundits will fall all over themselves to determine what it all means. Who won? Did either candidate deliver a fatal blow to the election chances of the other? Did Biden disprove the Trump-encouraged rumors about his senility? Did Trump manage to sway any undecided voters?

We will not dwell here on the fact that many other, highly-qualified candidates are running for president (this writer, a U.S. citizen who moved to Canada fifteen years ago, will vote for Gloria La Riva of the Party for Socialism and Liberation for president).

No, with all the discussion about Trump and Biden, it is beneficial, this writer thinks, to consider what continues to happen in the world, that has lost the attention of the press, and therefore, the public. We will present a short, albeit incomplete, list.

Kanye West: Planned Parenthood Founded ‘to Kill the Black Race and to Create Population Control’

Gospel rapper and billionaire fashion designer Kanye West highlighted the racial eugenicist ideology of Margaret Sanger, the founder of the organization that became abortion giant Planned Parenthood, in a recent interview with Joe Rogan.

West, a presidential candidate, said, “Plan B and Planned Parenthood were planned by eugenicists that set out and said out loud, ‘I’m doing this to kill the black race and to create population control.'”

The Grammy-winner contrasted deaths linked to COVID-19 by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) with what he said was an average of 1,000 unborn black children aborted every day.

“Let me talk about Planned Parenthood, okay? The last figure I saw is there were 210,000 deaths due to COVID in America, and everywhere you go, you see someone with a mask on. … With abortion culture, there are 1,000 black children aborted a day, daily. We are in genocide,” Kanye West said.

Islamism Converges With Cancel Culture

Samuel Paty wanted to teach his students a lesson about free speech. He ended up paying with his life. Paty, 47, a middle-school teacher in a Paris suburb, announced to his civics class in early October that he would show some of the caricatures of the prophet Muhammad that the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo published in 2015 and that students were free to opt out of viewing the images.

The teacher was immediately denounced on social media. In a viral video, the Muslim father of one of Paty’s students related a series of fabrications. He falsely claimed that his daughter attended the class on free speech, that the teacher banned all Muslim students from the room and later showed the class a “photograph of a naked man” as if it were a portrait of “the Prophet of Islam,” and that his daughter had been excluded from the school in retaliation for her objections.

Trump mocks 'Sleepy' Joe Biden, 77, for forgetting who is President and saying we 'need to stop four more years of George' - then accuses the 'Fake News Cartel' of trying to cover the story up

Donald Trump has mocked 'Sleepy' Joe Biden for forgetting who was president after the Democrat candidate said 'we need to stop four more years of George.'

Biden was last night addressing a virtual concert when he said: 'Four more years of George, er, George, er, he - we're going to find ourselves in a position where, if Trump gets elected, we're going to be in a different world.'

The 77-year-old appeared to receive a prompt from his wife Jill who was sitting beside him, muttering 'Trump' under her breath.

How the president could invoke martial law

Throughout 2020, America has faced a global pandemic, civil unrest after the death of George Floyd and a contentious election. As a result, an influx of fear about the possibility of the invocation of martial law or unchecked military intervention is circulating around the internet among scholars and civilians alike.

“The fear is certainly understandable, because as I’m sure you know, martial law isn’t described or confined or limited, proscribed in any way by the Constitution or laws,” Bill Banks, a Syracuse professor with an expertise in constitutional and national security law, told Military Times. “If someone has declared martial law, they’re essentially saying that they are the law.”

Putin Says US Withdrawal From INF 'Grave Mistake', Creates Risk of Nuclear Arms Race

In August 2019 the United States withdrew from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, citing Russia's alleged violation of the agreement's terms.

Russian President Vladimir Putin Says US exit from Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty was a "grave mistake" which creates the risk of a renewal of the nuclear arms race.

"We consider the US withdrawal from the INF Treaty, as a result of which it has ceased to operate, a serious mistake that increases the risks of unleashing a missile arms race, increasing confrontational potential and sliding into uncontrolled escalation," reads the statement cited by the Kremlin press service.

'Four More Years of George': Netizens in Stitches as Biden Appears to Confuse Trump With Bush

Some social media users wondered aloud whether Biden was referring to George W. Bush or perhaps to King George III.

US Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has invited mockery once again among social media users by making an apparent election-related verbal gaffe during a fundraising event.

According to the New York Post, he was speaking at the "I Will Vote" concert on 25 October when he "appeared to confuse" the current US President Donald Trump with a certain previous POTUS while attempting to "make a case for his election".

Having touted the upcoming presidential election as "the most consequential election in a long, long, long time", Biden insisted that, in his view, the very "character" of the United States is "literally on the ballot".

Live Updates: Turkish F-16 Jets Will Be Used in Case of Aggression Against Azerbaijan, Aliev Says

The US State Department announced on Sunday that a new humanitarian ceasefire in Nagorno-Karabakh was going to enter into force at 8:00 a. m. local time (4:00 GMT) on 26 October.

Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan says his country is ready to adhere to the new humanitarian ceasefire that came into force early on Monday.

The president of the self-proclaimed republic of Artsakh (Republic of Nagorno-Karabakh), Arayik Harutyunyan, said Stepanakert was ready to adhere to the new ceasefire deal, reached with the mediation of the United States and with the participation of the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs, which reaffirms the parties' commitments to implement the truce agreed upon on 10 and 17 October at the initiative of Russian President Vladimir Putin and his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The cease fire has already collapsed.

Putin says Hunter Biden ‘made very good money’ in Ukraine, but Moscow isn’t aware of ‘anything criminal’ in his dealings with Kiev

Business that Joe Biden’s son Hunter “had or might have” in Ukraine has nothing to do with Moscow, President Vladimir Putin said, on Sunday, adding that Biden made “good money” there and Russia sees “nothing criminal” in it.

“It doesn't concern us. It concerns the Americans and the Ukrainians,” the Russian president said when asked about Hunter’s business dealings in Ukraine during an interview with Rossiya-1.

Putin revealed that he is aware of “at least one company” Joe Biden’s son “de-facto headed,” adding that Hunter “apparently made very good money” from this endeavor. Still, Putin said he does not “see anything criminal about it.”

Maduro says Venezuelan scientists developed medicine that ‘cancels 100% of Covid-19’ with no side-effects

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro says his country has designed “a highly effective antiviral” that decimates coronavirus without any side effects. The drug will be presented to the WHO for certification, he added.

"I want to say that Venezuela has developed a medicine that annihilates 100 percent of the coronavirus," Maduro said on Sunday, describing it as a “highly effective antiviral.”

It was designed by the Venezuelan Institute for Scientific Research (IVIC), which has been working on a cure for the virus for the past six months, he noted.

The medicine is based on a molecule called TR-10, which was isolated and, when pitted against the virus, proved its absolute effectiveness, he claimed.

Ultimatum day in Belarus: Tikhanovskaya announces strike after Lukashenko refuses to resign, Minsk denies work has stopped

Former Belarusian presidential candidate Svetlana Tikhanovskaya, now exiled in the EU, called a nationwide strike Monday after long-time leader Alexander Lukashenko refused to step down following an ultimatum from the opposition.

The measure finally brings things to a head after months of protest and will be seen as a litmus test for the anti-Lukashenko coalition's attempt to force a transfer of power. Should the strike action fail to take hold, it will be seen as a victory for the incumbent, but if it gains momentum, then all bets are off.

On Monday morning, opposition-leaning media reported that multiple large businesses throughout the country had ceased working. This was denied by the government, which claimed that key enterprises are “operating normally” and “production has not been stopped.”

Another Nagorno-Karabakh ceasefire fails: Warring parties trade bitter accusations over who violated latest US-brokered truce

Armenia and Azerbaijan have accused each other of violating a Monday truce in Nagorno-Karabakh, with heavy artillery fire. Reports of renewed hostilities came after a fresh attempt to reach a ceasefire was announced in Washington.

The Defense Ministry in Baku said that Yerevan's forces had “violated the new humanitarian ceasefire” on Monday by shelling its positions in several locations.

Putin risks row with Trump by saying there is 'nothing criminal' with Hunter Biden's foreign business deals with Russia and Ukraine

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Sunday that he saw nothing criminal in Hunter Biden's past business ties with Ukraine or Russia, marking out his disagreement with one of Donald Trump's attack lines in the U.S. presidential election.

Putin was responding to comments made by Trump during televised debates with Democratic challenger Joe Biden ahead of the Nov. 3 election.

Trump, who is trailing in opinion polls, has used the debates to make accusations that Biden and his son Hunter engaged in unethical practices in Ukraine.

Gulf Coast braces for ANOTHER hurricane: Tropical storm Zeta gathers strength as it heads to America - while central US faces a blast of snow and ice in the run-up to the election

A strengthening Tropical Storm Zeta is expected to become a hurricane Monday as it heads toward the eastern end of Mexico's resort-dotted Yucatan Peninsula and is set to smash into the Gulf Coast later this week.

It comes as a major storm traveling across the country will bring snow and ice across the central U.S..

In Colorado, it is hoped that snowfall will put a damper on raging wildfires, while high winds and dry conditions in parts of California have raised fire concerns.

Hillary Clinton says the thought of Trump winning re-election makes her 'physically sick' and claims 'most Republicans want to see him gone but can't say it publicly '

Hillary Clinton has said she will be 'sick to my stomach' if President Trump secures re-election in next month's election.

'It makes me literally sick to my stomach to think that we'd have four more years of this abuse and destruction of our institutions. And damaging of our norms and our values. And lessening of our leadership. And the list goes on,' she said in a new podcast, to be aired on Monday.

She said she 'can't entertain the idea of [Trump] winning' the election, which is just over a week away.

After the Vietnam War, pretty much the entire US populace was sick of war and militarism.

The idea that we would ever again get involved in aggressive overseas “adventures” was unthinkable.

Of course, now we’re everywhere and now openly antagonizing Russia and China.

How did this happen?

One word: Grenada.

First Fire, Now Punishing Winds, Someone Is Trying To Give Progressive State A Hint

California, which has seen its worst wildfire season in history, is bracing for the most dangerous winds of the year. This follows a series of faulty electric wiring being hit by lightning during the summer months.

The forecast forced the largest utility to announce plans to cut power on Sunday to nearly 1 million people to guard against its equipment sparking new blazes.

Pacific Gas & Electric Co. said the outages would start in far Northern California and ultimately could affect 386,000 customers in 38 counties, with many of the blackouts concentrated in the San Francisco Bay Area.

At a Saturday night briefing, utility officials said high winds were expected to arrive midday Sunday and reach 40 to 60 mph with higher gusts in the mountains. Winds that strong can topple trees and send branches into power lines.

Dr. Fauci and Biden advocate a federal mask mandate, as daily COVID-19 infections hit 83,000 for 2nd consecutive day

Dr. Anthony Fauci wants all Americans to wear a mask and — contrary to previous statements he’s made on the issue — he now favors a mask mandate in order to make that happen.

Fauci, a physician and immunologist, and director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases for the last three decades, told Erin Burnett on CNN’s OutFront Friday evening: “If people are not wearing masks, then maybe we should be mandating."

“There’s going to be a difficulty enforcing it, but if everyone agrees that this is something that’s important, and they mandate it and everybody pulls together and says, you know, we’re going to mandate it but let’s just do it, I think that would be a great idea,” he said.

Holdouts, All Night Sessions And Vote Turning Complete, Senate To Vote On Barrett [Today]

Sen. Lisa Murkowski announced Saturday she will in fact be voting to confirm Amy Coney Barrett, giving crucial support to President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee.

The Alaska Republican had been a rare holdout on Barrett, decrying that her nomination had proceeded extremely close to a presidential election. Even though Barrett seems to have support for confirmation from Senate Republicans who hold the majority in the chamber, Murkowksi's vote now gives Trump's nominee additional backing.

Big-Tech Overreach: Facebook Tells University What To Put In Their School Paper

The Wall Street Journal reports that Facebook's latest squabble is with the NYU Ad Observatory, a project started last month to collect information on the types of political ads Americans see on the site.

The project reportedly has more than 6,500 volunteers who use a uniquely designed browser extension to monitor the political ads that are being shown.

'Scraping tools, no matter how well-intentioned, are not a permissible means of collecting information from us,' read the letter from Allison Hendrix, Facebook's privacy policy official.

Freedom of Choice: the European Court of Justice Wants to Keep Cash

Whether it be because the EU is staying true to its pledge to protect the freedom and well-being of its citizens, or because it wishes to increase its relevance and importance in the mind of Europeans, the matter is of no small importance. The Court of Justice of the European Union, through its Advocate General, Giovanni Pitruzzella, could put an end to a creeping campaign led by private organizations to discontinue physical currency. The motion aims to protect vulnerable citizens and fundamental liberties.

Polls Show Trump Will Lose to Biden as Bad as He Lost to Hillary

Presidential polls are showing that President Trump will lose to Joe Biden as bad as he lost to Hillary Clinton in 2016.

“It’s not looking good at all for Trump,” Pew Pew pollster Jack Ace said. “He’s down nearly 10 points. If he keeps this up, he’s going to lose to Biden just as bad as he lost to Hillary.”

Every poll in the universe had Trump losing badly to Hillary in 2016 and polls this time around are predicting a repeat of the 2016 loss.

In the race for president, Biden is currently leading Trump by about 10 percentage points in an average of national polls from FiveThirtyEight. Decision Desk HQ, an election forecasting company, predicts that Biden has an 86.7% chance of winning the election, which seems to indicate that Biden will win in roughly the same fashion that Hillary did in 2016.

As U.S. Tensions Soar With China, Taiwan Fears Cannon Fodder Risk

After 40 years of “strategic ambiguity” in its partnership with the United States, Taiwan has taken the unprecedented move of calling Washington for “clarity” on whether it would be defended in the event of armed conflict with China.

The Washington Post reported last week a senior Taiwanese representative to the U.S. as saying: “We need some degree of clarity.” The post headlined with the question: “Would the U.S. protect Taiwan from China?”

The growing nervousness on the island territory off China’s southern coast comes amid heightened tensions between Washington and Beijing. Those tensions have been fueled by the Trump administration’s sharp divergence from respecting Washington’s erstwhile One China policy.

The New Tyranny Few Even Recognize

It's pretty much universally recognized that authorities use crises to impose "emergency powers" that become permanent. This erosion of civil and economic liberties is always sold as "necessary for your own good." Of course the accretion of ever greater power in the hands of the few is for our own good. How could it be otherwise? (Irony off)

In this environment of "emergency powers", it's almost refreshing to find a power grab so blatant that its sheer boldness boggles the mind. I'm talking about the Federal Reserve's FedNow, a proposed system of instant payments and digital dollars.

In Arab first, Bahraini institution joins with US to combat anti-Zionism

A Bahraini institute has signed an agreement with the US State Department to combat anti-Semitism, anti-Zionism and delegitimization of Israel.

The memorandum of understanding, signed Thursday in Washington, DC, marks the first time an Arab country has embraced a key Trump administration agenda item, to get countries to include anti-Zionism and some forms of harsh criticism of Israel in their definitions of anti-Semitism. It comes as the Trump administration has in recent weeks brokered a series of normalization agreements between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Sudan.

Entire Nigerian police force mobilized after days of violent protests that have killed at least 69

Nigeria’s inspector general of police on Saturday ordered the mobilization of all officers to “reclaim the public space from criminal elements masquerading as protesters” after days of peaceful demonstrations against police brutality erupted into violence.

According to The Associated Press, M.A. Adamu in a statement ordered colleagues to “dominate the public space” and also called for an end to the unrest that has left at least 69 people dead.

The police inspector general also encouraged “law-abiding citizens not to panic but rather join forces with police ... to protect their communities from the criminal elements.”

Azeris Using Banned Cluster Munitions in Nagorno-Karabakh

The 2008 Convention on Cluster Munitions (CCM) bans production use, transfer, and stockpiling of these terror weapons that scatter submunition bomblets over a wide area.

Nobel Peace Prize laureate Jody Williams called CCM “the most important disarmament and humanitarian convention in over a decade.”

Brightly colored, children mistake cluster bomblets for toys. Picking them up risks serious injury or death.

The US and Israel notoriously use these and other banned weapons in their preemptive wars.

Both countries failed to join over 100 others that are parties to the CCM.

Indigenous Colombians, Facing New Wave of Brutality, Demand Government Action

Protesters descended by the thousands on Colombia’s capital, Bogotá, this week, horrified by a brutal wave of violence sweeping the country, one so intense that mass killings have taken place every other day on average.

Most traveled hundreds of miles, from the rural Indigenous communities that have been particularly ravaged by the violence, which they trace to government failures to protect them under the country’s halting peace process.

They call their movement the “minga Indígena.”

Minga is an Indigenous word, one used long before the Spanish arrived in South America, to refer to an act of communal work, an agreement between neighbors to build something together: a bridge, a road, a government.

605 Years Ago: Medieval Inspiration to Fight The Corona World Order Today.

“The truth is, the technocrats have no intention of ever letting us go back to normal,” writes Dr. Joseph Mercola in Fear Secures Obedience in COVID-19 War. “The plan is to alter society permanently. Part of that alteration is the removal of civil liberties and human rights, and it is now happening at breakneck speed.”

It may seem like we are outnumbered in an impossible battle against the Corona World Order. The majority of the population have already succumbed to the mass brainwashing operation underway.

Yet, 605 years ago, King Henry V found his army outnumbered by six-to-one on the fields of Agincourt in Northern France.

Death, Money, and the Dueling Frauds: Trump and Biden

When The New York Times and CNN recently referred to the staged town hall spectacles of Biden and Trump as dueling events, they inadvertently revealed the truth that U.S. presidential elections are America’s favorite movie and that the corporate media is in the entertainment business.

While it is ludicrous to imagine these tottering actors crossing swords in tights, their skirmishes in suits and ties are good for a few laughs, if you have the stomach to watch them. Only people who still believe in professional wrestling would think these clowns don’t work for the same bosses – the Umbrella People, aka the power elites, the national security state, etc., who own the country and choose their stooges to represent their interests in the White House.

I much prefer Mel Brooks, a genuinely funny guy.

US-China Confrontation: The Hijacking of the United Nations Security Council Continues

US Ambassador publishes article in New York Post, October 21, 2020 accusing China of precisely the tactics the US has been using at the UN since its inception.

China replies today:

“On 21 October the US Permanent Representative to the United Nations published an article, viciously attacking cooperation between China and the UN. The article disregards facts, and features lies, twisted logic, ideological bias and a cold war mentality. It is an embodiment of McCarthyism in the new era. We firmly reject it.”

The Security Council meeting on October 5th, 2020, during the Russian Presidency, is a dramatic demonstration of US and allied manipulations and falsifications, the very manipulations and falsifications they accuse China of.

Video shows SAS soldiers discussing a fellow operator apparently killing a 'compliant' prisoner in Afghanistan

Video footage obtained by ABC Investigations shows members of an SAS patrol in Afghanistan talking about the apparent execution of a "totally compliant" prisoner by one of their comrades.

The patrol commander describes the incident as "f***ing bullshit".

"I'm not happy with it," he says in the footage.

The metadata of the footage, taken from the helmet camera of one of the SAS soldiers, reveals the conversation took place a day after an operation in the village of Shina in Uruzgan Province in mid-May 2012.

During that raid, by members of 3 Squadron SAS, three Afghans were killed.

US, Global Corporate Giants Not Amused Mexico Finally Forces Them to Pay the Taxes They Owe

The American Bar Association (ABA) this week lambasted the Mexican government for using heavy handed tactics, including criminal probes into tax fraud, to motivate corporate tax dodgers to finally settle their tax bills. The complaint echoes a similar broadside from the International Bar Association last month and reflects growing frustration among companies about the government’s use of more stringent audits, tighter surveillance methods, and the threat of tough legal action to crack down on corporate tax dodgers and tax frauds.

The Government says it has launched criminal proceedings against 43 companies that owe 55 billion pesos ($2.6 billion) to the treasury in unpaid taxes dating back to 2010. Most other companies that have been subject to audit in recent months have agreed to settle their tax debts.

Will the Next Head of the WTO Impose a Gates-Davos “Great Reset” Agenda?

It is all but certain that the next head of the influential World Trade Organization (WTO) will be an African by birth and a woman. But neither is what makes the all-but certain naming of Nigerian-born Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala cause for alarm. Rather it is who she is and who she presently is tied to that insure she will implement the unfolding agenda of the Great Reset transformation of the world economy, using the coronavirus pandemic as a prime lever. She presently heads an organization created by the seeming omnipresent (not omniscient) Bill Gates together with the Davos World Economic Forum—both involved in implementing the Great Reset–and she is deeply tied to the prime institutions of globalization and international finance. Some background we should know about.

WHO Crusader to Counter “Conspiracy Dissident Groups” and Sway Covid “Vaccine Acceptance”

An outspoken proponent of government-led tactics to influence public opinion on policy and to undermine the credibility of “conspiracy theorists” will lead the World Health Organization’s (WHO) efforts to encourage public acceptance of a COVID-19 vaccine, Children’s Health Defense has learned.

Last week, WHO’s general director, Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus, tweeted that he was glad to speak with the organization’s Technical Advisory Group (TAG) on Behavioural Insights and Sciences for Health to “discuss vaccine acceptance and uptake in the context of COVID-19.”

In his next tweet Ghebreyesus announced that Cass Sunstein, founder and director of the Program on Behavioral Economics and Public Policy at Harvard Law School, will chair the advisory group, which was created in July.

The Covid-19 Numbers Game: The “Second Wave” is Based on Fake Statistics

Red zones”, travel bans, quarantines, “red lists”. A “Second Wave” has been announced.

The fear campaign has gone into overdrive. Millions of people are lining up for Covid-19 testing.

Drastic state measures are contemplated, including restrictions on social gatherings, marriages, funerals, the closing down of restaurants and bars, the outright paralysis of civil society.

Coming to the rescue of our citizens. What is the justification?

Pakistan PM Imran Khan Orders France’s Macron to Stop ‘Hurting’ Muslim Feelings

Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan added his voice Sunday to the growing Muslim chorus condemning France’s President Emmanuel Macron for criticizing Islam and “hurting the feelings” of its “peaceful followers.”

“Hallmark of a leader is he unites human beings, as Mandela did, rather than dividing them. This is a time when President Macron could have put healing touch and denied space to extremists rather than creating further polarisation and marginalisation that inevitably leads to radicalization,” he said, as reported by the Islamic Republic News Agency.

Khan claimed it is unfortunate Macron “encouraged Islamophobia” by attacking Islam for the actions of a few from the religion of peace and co-prosperity.

“Sadly, President Macron has chosen to deliberately provoke Muslims, including his own citizens through encouraging the display of blasphemous cartoons targeting Islam and our Prophet PBUH,” said PM Imran.

Pope Francis Compares Today’s European Nationalism with Pre-Nazi Germany

Pope Francis suggested Saturday that Europe is repeating the errors of pre-Nazi Germany by allowing new anti-immigration nationalisms to take hold.

In an address to socialist Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez, Pope Francis recommended a book by “an Italian intellectual from the Communist Party” with the “very evocative title: Syndrome 1933.”

In his 2019 book, Siegmund Ginzberg compared what was happening with the rise of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party in 1933 to 2019 Italy, where a new anti-immigrant nationalism and populism threaten to become the dominant political movement.

The book “refers to Germany, obviously,” the pope said Saturday. “With the fall of the Weimar Republic emerged a whole mix of possibilities to get out of the crisis. And there an ideology began to show that the path was National Socialism and it went on and on and arrived at what we know: the drama that was Europe with that homeland invented by an ideology.”

FLASHBACK - Executive Order on Preventing Online Censorship

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1. Policy. Free speech is the bedrock of American democracy. Our Founding Fathers protected this sacred right with the First Amendment to the Constitution. The freedom to express and debate ideas is the foundation for all of our rights as a free people.

In a country that has long cherished the freedom of expression, we cannot allow a limited number of online platforms to hand pick the speech that Americans may access and convey on the internet. This practice is fundamentally un-American and anti-democratic. When large, powerful social media companies censor opinions with which they disagree, they exercise a dangerous power. They cease functioning as passive bulletin boards, and ought to be viewed and treated as content creators.

Tropical Storm Zeta To Intensify Into Hurricane Leading To More Gulf Coast Chaos

Tropical Storm Zeta formed in the Caribbean Sunday morning, with the National Hurricane Center (NHC) forecasting the storm could strengthen into a hurricane Tuesday as a midweek landfall is expected on the US Gulf Coast. Zeta could strike the northern Gulf Coast on Wednesday. More specifically, hurricane models, as of Sunday afternoon, predict storm surge, rainfall, and hurricane wind impacts could be seen from Louisiana to the Florida Panhandle.

To remind readers, on June 1, day one of hurricane season, we said this season "could be above average, with 13 to 19 named storms." And to our surprise, Zeta is the 27th named storm, tying 2005 as the most active hurricane season on record.

In early August, one month before La Nina was declared, we said the hurricane season is about to go "from bad to worse with La Nina odds up." By Sept. 10, the Climate Prediction Center confirmed La Nina, a weather pattern in the Northern Hemisphere that fuels more tropical activity.

A Free Press Has A Responsibility To Be Fair

Surging Media Bias has blown away the notion the free press will be fair and this year it seems these players that shape our opinions are doubling down. This was demonstrated when allegations regarding Hunter Biden and a laptop with damning E-mails surfaced. Rather than letting people see and decide what to think about this information the response of Twitter and Facebook, was to shut it down and block it from getting out. This is where the power of tech companies flexing their muscles allows us to see they have become a major force in the media. Other news outlets also imposed a virtual blackout on the allegations. It didn’t matter that thousands of emails were available for review or that the Bidens did not directly address the material. It was all declared to be fake news.

Putin Defends Bidens, Becomes 'Visibly Irritated' When Asked About $3.5 Million Moscow Payment To Hunter

Russian President Vladimir Putin defended Hunter Biden on Sunday, saying the saw 'nothing criminal' regarding his past business ties with Ukraine or Russia, according to Reuters.

Putin's statement would seem to fly in the face of the MSM's latest conspiracy theory that he's somehow behind the release of Hunter Biden's alleged laptop contents, and you should believe that 'whether or not it's true.' It would also suggest that Putin never possessed, or hasn't read the New York Post's undisputed evidence that Hunter introduced a Burisma adviser to his father eight months before Joe Biden pressured Ukraine to fire their Prosecutor General, who was investigating Burisma at the time.

Putin appeared less friendly towards Trump in remarks broadcast by Russian state TV on Sunday. In what may be seen by some analysts as an attempt to try to curry favour with the Biden camp, he took the time to knock down what he made clear he regarded as false allegations from Trump about the Bidens.

Chinese Authorities Scramble To Suppress Biggest COVID-19 Outbreak In Months

Chinese authorities are scrambling to suppress yet another outbreak in far-flung Xinjiang after a 17-year-old garment factory worker tested positive.

Health authorities reported 137 new cases on Sunday, all of which were confirmed in Xinjiang Province, making this by far the largest new outbreak since the Spring. In keeping with Beijing's prescribed "wartime posture" approach, authorities last night launched a mass-testing campaign to try and test all 4.75 million residents in and around the city of Kashgar. A couple of weeks ago, authorities pulled off a similarly massive testing drive in Qingdao, a city in the eastern Shangdong Province.

The Elephant In The Room: Florida School Revokes Parking Privileges Of Student With Trump Display On Truck

We recently discussed the case of a Louisiana high school senior who had his parking space mural to President Donald Trump painted over by his school.

Now a Florida senior has an equally troubling free speech case involving the Volusia County School District. Tyler Maxwell is suing the District after it barred him from parking his pickup truck with a large elephant in the back featuring Trump’s name.

Vermont Goes "Tone Deaf" On Free Speech: Principal Fired Over "All Lives Matter" Statement

We previously discussed the disturbing case of Vermont Principal Tiffany Riley who was suspended after she wrote on Facebook that she does not agree with the Black Lives Matter movement. Shortly after that posting, Mount Ascutney School Board held an emergency meeting to declare that it is “uniformly appalled” and that Riley was “tone deaf” for making such a statement.

In what should now be a major free speech case, the Board unanimously voted to fire Riley, citing her “denigrating, derogatory, or contrary to the movement for social equity for African Americans, including the Black Lives Matter movement.”

Sudanese Parties Reject Transitional Govt’s Normalization With Israel

Friday’s joint statement normalizing Sudanese ties with Israel is not sitting well with many people and political blocs within Sudan, who see this transitional government as having gone behind their backs to make an unpopular deal.

Dozens of Sundanese protested against the move in the capital. The Popular Congress Party, an influential bloc member, said the public is being isolated and marginalized by the “secret deals” and that they are not bound by that.

Former PM Sadiq al-Mahdi condemned the deal, saying it contradicts national laws and is hurting the peace process. Concern about where this puts Sudan with the Palestinians seems to be a significant issue.

Protesters Return to Baghdad a Year Later, Say Demands Still Unmet

The one-year anniversary of some of the last major protests in Baghdad saw thousands take to the streets in Tahrir Square, insisting that their demands are still generally unmet after all this time, and that the promises which were supposed to placate them generally didn’t pan out.

As with the last protests, the government sought to handle this rally by sending police out en masse to fire tear gas and put up barricades. Past history suggests this will not work, and will just rile up more people.

The demands have been straightforward for the protesters, who want a break form historic corruption, and free elections in which the candidates are loyal to the Iraqi voters first and foremost, instead of being aligned to either the US or Iran.

Armenia and Azerbaijan say they will implement ceasefire agreement Monday

Officials from Armenia and Azerbaijan announced that their respective countries would implement a ceasefire agreement on Monday, a sign of growing stability following weeks of conflict over the contested Nagorno-Karabakh region.

In a statement released jointly by the governments of the U.S., Armenia and Azerbaijan, officials "reaffirmed their countries’ commitment to implement and abide by the humanitarian ceasefire agreed in Moscow on October 10."

That ceasefire, signed earlier this month, would bring to a halt a growing conflict between the two former Soviet republics that had so far claimed the lives of hundreds, perhaps thousands, of troops on both sides as well as dozens of civilians.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The cease fire has already collapsed.

Debate: If this is the future of foreign policy, we’re in trouble

Oh, the naiveté of the Quincy Institute, with their “Top 10 foreign policy questions.” Sure they predicted that their queries “probably” wouldn’t get asked back during the first presidential debate, but still, there was some hope that the event last night — which was billed with at least one national security segment — would throw us at least one bone.

But there was little bone, much less meat, to be had during the Nashville head-to-head. Foreign policy just wasn’t on the menu.

There were some small bite samplers, a moment here or there where the two men alighted on the topic, but frankly it left behind bad taste. What we heard clearly indicated that neither Donald Trump nor Joe Biden have a clear vision or desire for addressing our wars and military operations overseas without being forced to, or even an interest in defining what comes next in our tense relations with China, Russia, or Iran.

Is NATO ally Turkey forcing a dangerous US-Russia confrontation?

Armenia and Azerbaijan announced on October 20 that their foreign ministers would meet with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Washington this week in an effort to end the heaviest fighting between the two countries since the 1990s. It’s a worthy mission, but the Trump administration needs to exercise caution.

Turkish president dares U.S. to impose economic sanctions

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan challenged the United States to impose sanctions against his country while also launching a second personal attack Sunday on French President Emmanuel Macron.

Speaking a day after he suggested Macron needed mental health treatment because of his views on Islam and radical Muslims, Erdogan expanded his range to take aim at foreign critics.

“Whatever your sanctions are, don’t be late,” Erdogan said, referring to U.S. warnings for Turkey not to get directly involved in the conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh, where Ankara supports Azerbaijan against ethnic Armenian forces.

The Turkish leader also mentioned Washington’s threat of sanctions after Turkey tested the Russian-made S-400 air defense system. The purchase has already seen Turkey kicked off the F-35 stealth fighter program.

Joint List condemns normalization with Sudan

Former MK and chairman of the Balad party Jamal Zahalka calls for the Sudanese people to overthrow the government because of the normalization agreement.

The Joint List of Arab parties roundly condemned the normalization deal between Israel and Sudan, while a former chairman of the Balad Party, one of the constituents of the Joint List, called for the Sudanese people to overthrow the government because of the agreement.

Several Joint List MKs denounced the deal for ignoring the conflict with the Palestinians and said that only the establishment of a Palestinian state would lead to real peace in the region.

Turkish president threatens Syrian Kurds amid increasing clashes in northeast Syria

President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an delivered remarks at the 7th Ordinary Provincial Congress of the Justice and Development (AK) Party in Kayseri and the key handover ceremony of Kayseri Urban Transformation Project, the website of the Turkish presidency said.

“Recently, we have seen that the efforts for a new terrorist formation near the Iraqi border in Syria have been accelerated. Let me say this more clearly; there is an effort to establish a terror state there. I would like to say this without beating around the bush: Turkey will never allow the establishment of a terror state right beside its borders. We will do whatever is necessary and drain this swamp of terrorism.”

Hundreds gather to mark exhumation of Shingal mass grave

Several hundred people came together on Saturday on the southern side of mount Sinjar for a ceremony marking the start of the exhumation process of a mass grave of the Islamic State (ISIS) group victims in the village of Solagh.

“In Solagh subdistrict, ISIL [Islamic State, ISIS] militants committed mass killings of Yazidi women, and buried them in a mass grave. The remains of two such graves will be exhumed to then be matched, based on DNA sampling, with surviving family members who finally get the opportunity to lay their loved ones to rest, appropriately and according to traditions,” reads a press release.

The ceremony, which included Yezidi religious rites, was attended by roughly a hundred Yazidi men and women who lost someone to ISIS, when the group swept across northern Iraq in August 2014, committing genocide against the ethno-religious minority.

In Asia, Pompeo expected to bolster allies against China

U.S. Secretary of State of Mike Pompeo is flying to India next week to strengthen strategic ties with a nation that is locked in a military standoff with China, in Washington’s latest effort to bolster allies against Beijing.

As part of an intensifying pushback against China’s growing economic and military power in the region, Pompeo will also travel to Sri Lanka and the Maldives, two Indian Ocean countries struggling with a mountain of Chinese debt incurred to finance big infrastructure projects.

Pompeo will conclude his trip, which comes in the final week before the U.S. presidential election, in Indonesia, which is also locked in territorial disputes with China in the South China Sea.

Pakistan's PM takes aim at Macron; asks Facebook to ban Islamophobic content

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan called on Facebook to ban Islamophobic content on its platform, warning of a spike in radicalisation amongst Muslims, hours after he hit out at the French president for “attacking Islam”.

Pakistan summoned the French ambassador in Islamabad as anger spread on Monday over President Emmanuel Macron’s reaction to the murder last week of a French teacher by an Islamist.

Khan, in an open letter posted on Twitter on Sunday, said “growing Islamophobia” was encouraging extremism and violence worldwide, especially through social media platforms such as Facebook.

Israeli ‘Combatants for Peace’ Join Palestinians in Olive Harvest

Israeli and Palestinian Combatants for Peace activists, as part of the movement’s olive harvest campaign, joined Palestinian farmer Muhammad Adwan, from the village of Azzun in the northern West Bank, on Friday to help him pick his olive trees on his land in the Al-Salamah area adjacent to the Ma’ale Shimron settlement.

“With the beginning of each harvest season, Israeli settlers assault us and prevent us from harvesting,” Mohammad said. “A year ago, the settlers and the Israeli occupation soldiers shot at my son and held us for hours. I feel joy and relief that Combatants for Peace activists are with us here today to help us pick the olives. “

Police ordered to crack down on Thailand's landmark protests aren't sure what side they are on

The 21-year-old police officer arrived in Bangkok just after midnight on Oct. 15 with clear instructions: Disperse all protesters gathered in front of the prime minister's office, with force if necessary.

The young officer's commander ordered the operation to start at 4:20 a.m., shortly after the Thai government issued an emergency decree aimed at quashing the demonstrations that had rocked Bangkok over the summer, challenging the once-untouchable monarchy. Protected by their shields, the police bore down on the young protesters, some officers kicking and punching as they went, before arresting more than a dozen leaders of the youth movement.

"The commander in charge of our operation was quite aggressive and I was worried about that. I thought our actions were very unnecessary," said the officer, speaking on the condition of anonymity for fear of repercussions. "It made me feel ashamed of myself as a human being, and like I was a coward, betraying my principles."

Iran troops deployed on border near Nagorno-Karabakh conflict

Iran's Revolutionary Guards said Sunday they have deployed troops along the border with Azerbaijan and Armenia, following stray fire from the fighting over Nagorno-Karabakh.

Their mission was "to protect national interests and maintain peace and security".

Number of Armenian troops killed in Karabakh conflict rises by 36 to 963: Ifax

The defence ministry of Nagorno-Karabakh said on Saturday that the number of Armenian troops killed in the latest conflict in the region that began on Sept. 27 had risen by 36 to 963, the Interfax news agency reported.

The collapse of two Russia-brokered ceasefires has dimmed hopes for a quick end to fighting in Nagorno-Karabakh, a breakaway territory in Azerbaijan controlled by ethnic Armenians.

Belarus protests: nationwide strike looms after 'people’s ultimatum' rally

Belarusian riot police launched another violent crackdown in Minsk on Sunday evening, throwing stun grenades into crowds of peaceful protesters, chasing people through courtyards and making arrests as they attempted to curtail the 11th consecutive Sunday of protest in the country.

At least 100,000 people marched through the centre of the Belarusian capital earlier in the day to give what they called a “people’s ultimatum” to Alexander Lukashenko: step down, or face a nationwide strike on Monday that could cripple the economy.

Long columns of protesters, wrapped in the red-white traditional Belarusian flag that has become the symbol of the protests, streamed through the city centre, shouting “resign!” and “strike!”

Senior Labour frontbencher given 'dressing down' over criticism of Israel

UK Labour leader Keir Starmer has been embroiled in a new row over his party's position on Israel, after it emerged that one of his senior colleagues used a Commons debate on Palestine and the West Bank to accuse Israel of behaviour "tantamount to profiting from the proceeds of crime".

According to the UK's MailOnline newspaper, Stephen Kinnock, a member of Starmer's frontbench foreign affairs team, made remarks on Israel during the debate in September, which included calling on the UK to "ban all products that originate from Israeli settlements in the occupied territories".

Allies of Kinnock, former chairman of the British-Palestine all-party parliamentary group, stressed that the MP had made it very clear that his anger at the treatment of people in the Occupied Territories was not "about being pro-Israel or pro-Palestine - this is about striving for peace, justice and security for all".

Teacher: Sweden Must Be ‘Prepared’ for Attacks Like French Teacher Beheading

Swedish teachers said it was a question of “if, not when” an attack like the beheading of France’s Samuel Paty happened to a Swedish teacher.

Stockholm high school teacher Olof Linton commented on the murder of Mr Paty, who was beheaded in the street by a radical Islamic extremist teenager after showing pictures of the Mohammed cartoons to his class.

“Unfortunately, I think this is something that we have to see as an actual risk in Swedish schools, as well. The attacks might come from Islamist or right-wing extremists, but we have to be prepared for that to happen. It’s not a question of if, but when,” Linton told broadcaster SVT.
