This is the eve after a broken election, as broken machines count broken vote tallies, and as broken media “calls” outcomes. Everyone in legacy media is waiting “for AP to call the outcome,” which is sadly hilarious, given that AP has a Memorandum of Understanding that it won’t disclose fully to our Congress, with the news agency Xinhua, the CCP’s chief propaganda arm.

Treasonous media call a treasonous election process. [https://blog.ap.org/announcements/ap-response-to-questions-about-recent-xinhua-meeting]

In one state, the outcome is being overseen by one of the two main contestants — which is itself a true banana-republic level situation. [https://azsos.gov/about-office/secretaries-since-statehood/katie-hobbs].

In my own state, New York, the opposition candidate conceded, to my disgust, when there were still 1.4 million uncounted votes. [https://nypost.com/2022/11/09/lee-zeldin-to-concede-to-kathy-hochul-in-2022-ny-gov-race-campaign/] Why? Well, “NBC called” it – the day before.

A deadly missile explosion in Przewodow, Poland, has recently raised fears about the possibility of NATO’s direct military involvement in the conflict. As the alliance’s norms provide that an attack on any of its members must be collectively responded to, debates began to arise around the possibility of calling NATO to respond militarily to the bombing on the border. Hours after the investigation began, the Polish and American governments concluded that the missile that hit Przewodow was of Ukrainian origin.

In theory, this conclusion should be enough to discourage any form of NATO hostility to Russia. Either the alliance should unite against Ukraine itself, since it is the perpetrator of the attack, or it should simply refrain from military responses, in case it was proven that the bombing was unintentional. However, the attitude so far has been different: NATO continues to blame Russia, despite the Ukrainian origin of the equipment.

Some analysts believe that NATO’s credibility is being severely affected by this case. The Organization increasingly seems to want to escalate the war at any cost, which is why it would be seeking to attribute responsibility to Russia for something that it evidently cannot be blamed for. This bellicose and extremely irrational anti-Russian position is stronger in the eastern European countries that are part of the alliance, such as Poland itself and the Baltics. These states have embraced the anti-Russian paranoia more fervently than the US itself, which is why they have incessantly clamored for NATO intervention.

This is the opinion, for example, of military expert and former US Marine Corps intelligence officer Scott Ritter, who spoke in an interview about the unjustifiable attempts by these countries to involve NATO in a direct war against Russia:

  • From new potentially deadly synthetic pathogens to blocking the sun, our aspiring masters are attacking life from multiple angles
  • A recent preprint reports on a new engineered variant that showed an 80% disease mortality rate in humanized mice
  • While that particular result was based on humanized mice, so was the approval of the new bivalent boosters
  • In practical terms, debates about the crazies’ motives matter less than protecting ourselves from their assaults, whether they think of themselves as saviors or just like killing people
  • The paradox of this moment is that under pressure, we have a chance to remember why we are here and to celebrate and honor our life’s purpose

The UN’s high commissioner for human rights, Volker Türk, has sent an open letter to Twitter’s new owner Elon Musk, asking him to ensure that Twitter respects human rights and monitors hate speech and misinformation.

We obtained a copy of the letter for you here.

In the letter, Türk said he was writing with “concern and apprehension about our digital public square and Twitter’s role in it.”

Türk also said that there is a need to monitor hate speech and disinformation, noting that free speech should not be a “free pass.”

“Like all companies, Twitter needs to understand the harms associated with its platform and take steps to address them,” Türk wrote.

“Respect for our shared human rights should set the guardrails for the platform’s use and evolution. In short, I urge you to ensure human rights are central to the management of Twitter under your leadership.”

While everyone is fixated on the disgraced founder of FTX, Sam Bankman-Fried, and his collapsed cryptocurrency exchange, another Silicon Valley fraudster, Theranos CEO Elizabeth Holmes, will be sentenced in a federal courthouse Friday, putting an end to the years-long saga of her phony blood-testing startup. 

Holmes' sentencing will take place in a San Jose, California, courtroom where she was convicted earlier this year of three felony counts of wire fraud and one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud for scamming investors. 

Federal prosecutors wrote in court papers ahead of the sentencing hearing that Holmes' crimes are "among the most substantial white-collar offenses Silicon Valley, or any other district, has seen" (wait until SBF's court case...).

We never seem to learn from our mistakes.  Just before the financial markets crashed and the economy plunged into a horrifying recession in 2008, U.S. consumers went on a debt binge of epic proportions.  Mortgage debt, auto loan debt and credit card debt all skyrocketed, and so when the economy finally crashed all of a sudden there were millions of Americans drowning in bills that they were unable to pay.  Well, now it is happening again.  According to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, during the third quarter of 2022 household debt increased at the fastest pace that we have seen since the first quarter of 2008

Households added $351 billion in overall debt last quarter, taking the total to $16.5 trillion, according to data released by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York on Tuesday. That’s an increase of 8.3% from a year earlier, the most since a 9.1% jump in the first quarter of 2008. The debt figures aren’t adjusted for inflation.

There are strong indications that an undersea volcano in the Northern Marianas could be in eruption.

For several weeks, scientists of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) have been detecting acoustic underwater signals that bear signatures of underwater explosions and were now able to pinpoint their source to the Ahyi seamount, located in the Pacific about 6,100 km (3,800 miles) west of Honolulu.

This insane video shows a “wall of water” bringing devastation to New South Wales towns, with more than 220 people rescued from flooding in the past 24 hours.

It comes as Wyangala Dam spilled record amounts of water, after 100mm rain fell in just a few hours in parts of the NSW Central West. Helicopters and boats were used to carry out over 150 rescues in the inundated town of Eugowra, where people were forced to make for their roofs as floodwaters rose.

The US Department of Treasury has added the names of 13 companies to its Iran sanctions list, accusing them of commercial liaison with the Islamic Republic's energy sector.

The sanctions were announced by the department's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) on Thursday.

The companies in question, the OFAC announced in a statement on its website, were slapped with the coercive measures for "facilitating the sale of hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of Iranian petrochemicals and petroleum products to buyers in East Asia."

The targeted entities would function as front companies "on behalf of sanctioned Iranian petrochemical brokers Persian Gulf Petrochemical Industry Commercial Co. (PGPICC) and Triliance Petrochemical Co. Ltd. (Triliance), as well as the National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC) and its marketing arm, Naftiran Intertrade Company Ltd. (NICO)," it added.

The OFAC said the sanctions marked the fifth round of designations targeting Iran’s petroleum and petrochemical trade since June 2022.

The special military operation in Ukraine does not depend on weather conditions, it is continuing and its goals will be achieved, Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told the media on Thursday.

"The special military operation is continuing, it does not depend on climatic or weather conditions," Peskov said. He added that "its goals must be achieved."

While answering a question about millions of Ukrainian citizens who remained without electric and thermal power supply on November 15 due to combat operations at a time when weather forecasts predicted lower air temperatures, Peskov said that this was a result of strikes on military infrastructure due to Kiev’s reluctance to conduct negotiations with Russia.

 The Board of Governors of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) adopted a resolution that calls on Russia to withdraw its military personnel from the Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) and to "cease all actions" at nuclear facilities in Ukraine, the Russian permanent mission to international organizations in Vienna said, adding that Russia and China voted against the resolution.

"At the meeting of the IAEA Board of Governors on November 17, 2022 an unprofessionally drafted resolution that goes beyond the agency's mandate and contains factual errors on nuclear safety, nuclear security and safeguards in Ukraine was adopted. This is a further step towards politicizing the work of the IAEA," the Russian mission said on Telegram.

The document was supported by 24 out of 35 countries. Russia and China voted against it. Vietnam, India, Kenya, Namibia, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and South Africa abstained. The delegations of Burundi and Libya did not vote.

According to the text of the resolution, the IAEA Board of Governors calls on Russia to "cease all actions" at nuclear facilities in Ukraine.
