Russian military officials have claimed that the Pentagon has been transferring U.S. bioweapons projects out of Ukraine to Asia and other European countries.
Russia’s Radiological, Chemical and Biological Defense (RCB) Chief Igor Kirillov claims the Russian military has accumulated a collection of over 20,000 documents related to the U.S. military’s alleged biological program in Ukraine.
RCB Troops first accused the Pentagon of running a U.S. bioweapons program in Ukraine last spring.
Washington initially dismissed the allegations.
Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Victoria Nuland later confirmed that the U.S. government is “aware” of biolabs in Ukraine.
However, Nuland did not admit that the labs are American, as Russia claims.
“There are biological research laboratories in Ukraine,” Nuland said.
“We are currently concerned that the Russian militants may take control of them.
Following an attack carried out by Antifa members on businesses in Hollywood, one member of the group, 22-year-old Ezequiel "Zeke" Jorge Riesgo, was arrested. It has been revealed that Riesgo was previously featured on the popular Twitter account Libs of TikTok for talking about Riesgo's "gender-neutral baby."
According to a press release from the Los Angeles Police Department, a group began to gather in the 1500 block of Vine Street at around 7:30 pm. The attack was one of many carried out across the country following the release of bodycam footage related to the death of Tyre Nichols.
"The group started to march through the surrounding area, walking in the roadway," the press release read. "Around 8:15 pm, a man dressed in all black clothing with a gray backpack, later identified as 22-year-old Ezequiel Riesgo, used a tool in his hand to shatter the window of a business in the 1500 block of Cahuenga Boulevard."
Project Veritas claims to have obtained internal documents from an employee at Google showing the company’s scramble to do public relations fallout for Pfizer, Inc.
The internal documentation was shared on Twitter on Monday:
The document reads “URGENT GUIDANCE: Project Veritas video on the Pfizer vaccine, 27 Jan 2023.” It states:
WHAT: A clip unloaded by Project Veritas featuring a Pfizer official is rapidly spreading on the platform. The video, when uploaded in its entiretly contains a timestamp that violates the COVID-19 Vaccine Misinformation policy for making a categorical claim that COVID-19 vaccines are ineffective, and should therefore be removed unless it contains sufficient EDSA/CRC.
The document than proceeds to direct employees to “check the 4 corners and metadata for EDSA that clearly contradicts, refutes or countervails the violative timestamp without additional promotion (generalization, aggregation, repetition, affirmation).”
It then states to “Action the content” with a “STRIKE” if “no sufficient CRC is present in the 4 corners, title or description.”
“It is important that we remove violative reuploads of this content as it spreads harmful misinformation about approved vaccines against COVID-19,” the directive adds.
The Memphis Fire Department on Monday fired three emergency responders who responded to the scene after 5 Memphis police officers beat motorist Tyre Nichols.
A transgender fashion model from Brooklyn fatally stabbed her dad and critically wounded her kid sister during a rampage over a laptop, authorities said Monday.
The revelation came as suspect Nikki Secondino, 22, was arraigned on a murder indictment and shipped back to Rikers Island, where she has been held without bail since the Dec. 29 attack in the family’s Bensonhurst home.
Secondino was also charged with assault and weapons possession in the six-count indictment unsealed in court.
“This defendant is charged with brutally killing her own father and then stabbing her younger sister, allegedly following an argument over a laptop,” Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez said in a statement.
“My office will vigorously prosecutor this horrific case and seek justice for the victims.”
Board-certified internist and cardiologist Dr. Thomas Levy told Steve Kirsch in an interview on Jan. 17 that over seven million Americans may be suffering from some degree of heart damage because of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines.
Levy came up with these startling figures based on the assumption that at least 2.8 percent of people who get the COVID-19 vaccines eventually developed some form of heart injury detectable with a troponin test. (Related: EVERYONE who gets mRNA jabbed for covid suffers some degree of heart injury, study finds.)
Official data released on August 21, 2022, showed a total of 263 million Americans, or 79 percent of the U.S. population, have received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine. Given those figures, the projected number of Americans with vaccine-induced heart damage would be around 7.4 million.
Esther Crawford, a fast-rising lieutenant to Musk inside Twitter, has started to map out the architecture needed to facilitate payments on the platform with a small team, according to two people familiar with the company’s plans.
The nascent moves to allow payments through the site are a critical part of Musk’s plan to open up fresh revenue streams. Twitter’s $5bn-a-year advertising business has cratered since he bought the platform for $44bn in October, with marketers citing concerns over its management and moderation.
Musk has previously said he wants Twitter to offer fintech services such as peer-to-peer transactions, savings accounts and debit cards, as part of a masterplan to launch an “everything app” that incorporates messaging, payments and commerce. In 1999, Musk co-founded X.com, one of the first online banks, which later became part of payments giant PayPal.
A galaxy whose light has traveled nearly 13.5 billion years to reach us has just been confirmed as the earliest galaxy found to date.
By studying the oxygen content of the galaxy with the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), astronomers have precisely dated it to just 367 million years after the Big Bang, a time when the first lights in the Universe were still switching on and starting to propagate freely through space.
The result confirms observations made by JWST, and offers new information about the early Universe that tells us about the origins of the elements.
"The first images of the James Webb Space Telescope revealed so many early galaxies that we felt we had to test its results using the best observatory on Earth," says astronomer Tom Bakx of Nagoya University in Japan.
Utility companies in the U.S. have disconnected customers an estimated 5.7 million times since 2020, according to a new report.
The disconnections have come even as those companies have paid billions to shareholders and executives, according to a report published on Monday by the Center for Biological Diversity, BailoutWatch and the Energy and Policy Institute.
“No one should ever have to choose between having food on the table and keeping the heat on,” Selah Goodson Bell, a campaigner with the Center for Biological Diversity’s energy justice program, said in a statement.
“It’s inexcusable for utility executives and shareholders to profit while Americans suffer climate extremes and get punished for being poor,” he added.
Fossil fuel market upheaval and extreme weather drove electric and gas disconnections to new heights in 2022, the advocacy groups found.
They estimated that the first 10 months of 2022 saw 29 percent more power disconnections and 76 percent more gas disconnections than in the same period of 2021.
Just 12 companies were responsible for 86 percent of these shutoffs from 2020 to October 2022.
NASA’s Lucy spacecraft will add another asteroid encounter to its 4-billion-mile journey. On November 1, 2023, Lucy will get a close-up view of a small main-belt asteroid to conduct an engineering test of the spacecraft’s innovative asteroid-tracking navigation system.
The Lucy mission is already breaking records by planning to visit nine asteroids during its 12-year tour of the Jupiter Trojan asteroids, which orbit the Sun at the same distance as Jupiter. Originally, Lucy was not scheduled to get a close-up view of any asteroids until 2025, when it will fly by the main belt asteroid (52246) Donaldjohanson. However, the Lucy team identified a small, as-yet unnamed asteroid in the inner main belt, designated (152830) 1999 VD57, as a potential new and useful target for the Lucy spacecraft.
“There are millions of asteroids in the main asteroid belt,” said Raphael Marschall, Lucy collaborator at the Nice Observatory in France, who identified asteroid 1999 VD57 as an object of special interest for Lucy. “I selected 500,000 asteroids with well-defined orbits to see if Lucy might be traveling close enough to get a good look at any of them, even from a distance. This asteroid really stood out. Lucy’s trajectory as originally designed will take it within 40,000 miles of the asteroid, at least three times closer than the next closest asteroid.”
RUSSIA is mustering at least 200,000 troops for a massive new attack on Ukraine, NATO’s top official has warned.
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said grimly that there were “no signs” that Vladimir Putin was “preparing for peace”.
Kari Lake just held her Save Arizona rally and revealed some shocking evidence along with some powerful words for Katie Hobbs.
When Elon Musk announced his offer to buy Twitter for more than $40 billion, he told the public his vision for the social media site was to make sure it’s “an inclusive arena for free speech.”
Musk’s actions since closing the deal last year have illuminated how he sees the balance internet platforms must strike in protecting free expression versus user safety. While he’s lifted restrictions on many previously-suspended accounts including former President Donald Trump’s, he’s also placed new limitations on journalists’ and others’ accounts for posting publicly available flight information he’s equated to doxxing.
The saga of Musk’s Twitter takeover has underscored the complexity of determining what speech is truly protected. That question is particularly difficult when it comes to online platforms, which create policies that impact wide swaths of users from different cultures and legal systems across the world.
