Former President Donald Trump might not understand what is going on in Ukraine, according to the country’s President Volodymyr Zelensky, however he said Friday he is happy to bring the Republican nominee up to speed if he returns to the White House in 2024.

Zelensky made his claim about Trump’s ignorance in an exclusive interview with the BBC in London, adding he was willing to work with anyone who was in power in Washington.

“Maybe he really doesn’t understand what goes on in Ukraine, so we have to work with the United States,” Zelensky told the BBC, repeating his previous claim Trump would somehow be out of his depth in dealing with events in Eastern Europe.

Claire's Observations;  Mr. Zelinsky, FORMER President of Ukraine (who suspended the last elections, because he knew the Ukrainian people have had enough of him), a word, please.

Trump is critically aware of what has been going on with "Ukraine's war on Russia", and THAT is your worst nightmare. 

He will immediately stop this insanity, by stopping all shipments of weapons to Ukraine, to force you to the negotiation table with Russia, which is what should have happened from the beginning of these hostilities, which By-di-Bye's minions refused to allow to happen.

There have already been too many dead and maimed for life, and this madness has to stop.  To publicly disrespect Trump's capabilities for logic and understanding of precisely what has been going on here, is a very huge tactical mistake.  And trust me, he and his advisors will not forget this.

Do you still doubt that chaos is about to erupt in every corner of the United States in the coming months? The latest events are proof that social tensions are escalating alarmingly fast all over the country. Our population is becoming increasingly more divided – something that will likely get worse when people start heading to the ballots in November.

The US Air Force has been sending unmarked planes from Britain’s base on Cyprus to Israel since it began bombing Gaza, it can be revealed.

The planes are all C-295 and CN-235 aircraft, which are believed to be used by American special forces. 

Declassified has found 18 of these aircraft which have gone from the sprawling British air base on Cyprus, RAF Akrotiri, to Israel’s coastal city Tel Aviv since October 7.

Akrotiri is the key node in the international effort to arm and provide logistical support for Israel’s assault on Gaza.

But the UK government has always refused to divulge any information about US activities at Akrotiri, which is known to include transporting weapons to Israel.

Asked in May how many US Air Force (USAF) flights had taken off from the base since October 7, defence minister Leo Docherty said:

“The Ministry of Defence does not comment on the operations of our Allies.”

But Declassified discovered the unmarked planes that flew from Akrotiri to Israel from November to June have a serial number showing they are operated by the USAF. Most of these journeys had the flight number GONZO62.

Six more unmarked C-130 planes have gone from Akrotiri to Tel Aviv since the bombing of Gaza began, which are believed to be USAF, but it was not possible for Declassified to locate their operator.

The C-130 can carry 128 combat troops and almost 20 tonnes of cargo

MOSCOW (Reuters) - The Kremlin said on Thursday that Russia would consider any plans to establish a permanent presence of NATO warships in the Black Sea as a threat, given the alliance's involvement in the Ukraine conflict.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov made the remark when asked by reporters on a conference call about Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy's new maritime security strategy. Zelenskiy has spoken about the need to ensure that the Russian Navy does not dominate the Black Sea.

In the early days, the vision was clear. California was poised to revolutionize transportation with a high-speed rail system, echoing the success of France's TGV. SNCF, the French national railroad company, was eager to lend its expertise. Yet, what began as a promising collaboration quickly unraveled into a tale of frustration and disillusionment.

As early as January 2022, National Institutes of Health (NIH) researchers were aware of at least 850 peer-reviewed case reports and/or research articles about COVID-19 vaccine reactions, according to emails obtained by Children’s Health Defense (CHD).

In one email (name and agency redacted), NIH researchers were told the federal government was “saddled” with the “mess” of dealing with those injured by the COVID-19 vaccines, due to the liability shield enjoyed by vaccine manufacturers.

CHD requested the documents via a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the NIH in November 2022. When the NIH hadn’t responded by April 2023, CHD sued the agency.

In an October 2023 settlement, the NIH agreed to produce up to 7,500 pages of documents at a rate of 300 pages per month.

The batch of documents released in June — which include emails to Peter Marks, M.D., Ph.D., director of the FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research — revealed that by fall 2021, key NIH researchers were aware of scientific studies on serious adverse events, including persistent neurological symptoms, following COVID-19 vaccines.

On Jan. 10, 2022, NIH researcher Dr. Avindra Nath was forwarded an email from someone whose name is redacted, with the subject line: “Followup [sic] Jan 4th Meeting” (pages 281-289).

The original email, dated Jan. 9, 2022, was sent to FDA officials including Marks and Dr. Janet Woodcock, principal deputy commissioner of food and drugs, who apparently participated in a meeting on this topic on Jan. 4, 2022.

The Jan. 9, 2022 email included a list of “persistent symptoms following the Covid vaccines” and the names of researchers who were studying these conditions, which included dysautonomia, neuropathy, tinnitus, multisystem inflammatory syndrome (MIS), myocarditis, blood clots and parasthesias.

The email was accompanied by a spreadsheet listing approximately 850 “peer-reviewed case reports/research articles about Covid vaccine reactions.”

Claire's Observations:  The establishment scientific community knew, early on, about the damage these jabs could cause, yet continued to promote them as "safe" and "necessary".  

Victims of these intense side-effects had no real place to go, for treatment, or understanding of the issues with which they were dealing.  They were, in some cases, labeled "delusional", and sent home perhaps with some psychotropic prescription to "calm them."

Now that the reality of how bad these shots were, for so many people, has been made public, there is outrage that the medical community allowed this to happen to them.  

And what has happened to the trust Americans used to have in their doctors, and the  entire medical/industrial complex?!? It's gone, baby, gone!!!! 

Even the old, and relatively safe, inoculations against preventable diseases, has plummeted because of this insanity, and THAT is a bad and scary thing.

A widespread IT outage linked to a software update from cybersecurity company CrowdStrike has caused significant disruptions to businesses and services worldwide using Microsoft software, affecting banks, airports, TV stations, hotels, and many other industries.

Wired reports that in the early hours of Friday, companies running Microsoft’s Windows operating system began experiencing widespread technical issues, with devices displaying Blue Screens of Death (BSODs). The problem quickly spread globally, impacting organizations in Australia, the UK, India, Germany, the Netherlands, and the United States.

The outage has had far-reaching consequences across various sectors. In the aviation industry, major U.S. airlines including United, Delta, and American Airlines issued a “global ground stop” on all flights. Media outlets were also affected, with Sky News going offline. The healthcare sector saw disruptions as well, with NHS England confirming that GP appointment and patient record systems were impacted.

Cybersecurity officials have stated that the issues are not believed to be the result of a malicious cyberattack. Instead, the problems stem from a misconfigured or corrupted update pushed out by cybersecurity giant CrowdStrike to its customers. The incident appears to only be affecting devices running the Windows operating system.

In recent years, the restaurant industry has faced challenges that have caused significant turmoil. 2020 hit the restaurant industry like a wrecking ball, closing doors and dimming neon signs worldwide. However, amidst this upheaval, the industry has shown remarkable resilience. When the world came to a halt, so did the heartbeat of countless eateries, leaving restaurants struggling with empty tables and silent kitchens. Rising prices are just the beginning. Supply chain disruptions made it difficult to source ingredients, causing prices to rise. Buying meat, vegetables, and even basic cooking oil became a daily battle against inflated costs and scarce availability.

The Democratic National Committee plans to move forward with its virtual roll call to nominate Joe Biden — but will delay setting the date and rules for the vote until next week.

In a letter signed by the Democratic National Convention Rules Committee co-chairs Leah Daughtry and Tim Walz, the Minnesota governor, the committee says it will “propose a framework for how best to proceed” at a meeting on Friday, but members will not be adopting any rules until next week.

The letter, obtained first by POLITICO, was sent to other members of the rules committee on Wednesday morning. It also says that any voting on the nomination wouldn’t begin until at least Aug. 1, a few days later than published reports had suggested voting could begin.

With more than a thousand flights cancelled globally, passengers were seen sleeping in passageways at Los Angeles International Airport, huge queues formed at terminals across Spain, and in Delhi staff set up a makeshift whiteboard to record departures.

Shops in Australia shut down or went cashless after digital checkouts stopped working, while in the US emergency services lines went down in Alaska, Arizona, Indiana, Minnesota, New Hampshire and Ohio.

Cyber security company CrowdStrike has admitted to being responsible for the error that hit Microsoft 365 apps and operating systems and said a ‘fix has been deployed’. The American firm said it was caused by a ‘defect found in a single content update’ and insisted the issue ‘was not a security incident or cyberattack’.

The United States Secret Service said Trump rally shooter, Thomas Matthew Crooks, hid the weapon in advance. Agents say by the time they spotted him on the roof, 20-year-old Crooks was already holding the weapon. A Secret Service source told Fox News, "We went from golf range finder to AR-15, and now we have to fill in the gap."

Authorities says when they observed Crooks carrying a golf range finder he was marked as a 'person of interest' but not a 'threat.' Crooks struck at least four people with AR-15 fire from the rooftop, which led to the death of a 50-year-old father of two named Corey Comperatore. The shooting seriously wounded David Dutch and James Copenhaver.

Webmaster addition: More CYA propaganda to explain why nobody saw the shooter carrying a gun until he was on the roof. But what about that ladder? Crooks only bought the ladder the morning of the shooting?

US Secret Service whistleblowers have approached the House Judiciary Committee, claiming that there were limited resources to cover former President Donald Trump last weekend due to the North Atlantic Treato Organization (NATO) summit in Washington DC, as well as first lady Jill Biden's campaign rally in Pittsburgh, PA.

Webmaster addition: Trying to explain away the assassination attempt as incompetence. But remember that massive short sell of Trump stocks just the day before? That too is being dismissed as a "clerical error". But the list of excuses you have to believe to accept the crazed lone nut theory is getting pretty long!

Much has been written about the political earthquakes in Britain and France, the first resulting in the crushing defeat of the Conservative Party and the latter in the overpowering of the far right, by a largely leftist coalition.

The Israeli war of ‘extermination’ in Gaza, per the words of International Criminal Court Prosecutor Karim Khan, has made the cause of Palestinian freedom a global one. No amount of media disinformation, or lobby money can help Israel redeem its tarnished image. Many Israelis, too, have reached that realization.

The horrific war, the steadfastness of the Palestinian people and the global solidarity efforts have all served as a boost for many governments around the world to adopt stronger stances in support of Palestine. The recent volley of recognitions of a Palestinian state attests to this claim.

Though the war played a big part in this, the shift is expected to grow in the coming years because European voters are clearly fed up with their governments’ blind support of Israel.

They are using their democratic systems to effect real changes in government, thus policies with the aim of ending the Israeli occupation of Palestine.

Responsible governments, like Spain, Norway and Ireland, are responding to the wishes of their people accordingly. Others, including the US, should follow suit.

One of the tactics of the open-borders advocates is to have an endless series of appeals for illegal aliens, even after they are deported, in the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR), the administrative immigration-appeals system, and in the Article III Federal court system.

Michelle Malkin said it plainly decades ago: “It Ain't Over ‘Til the Alien Wins” [June 12, 2007] and that is part of the perfidious plan by the Treason Bar and kritarchs in Federal courts. Just keep cases open until the government surrenders and gives an illegal alien a green card.

It never ends, in fact it expands. Senator Christopher Murphy has proposed legislation to further clog the Federal courts by ending the most sensible restriction on one avenue of appeals, false claims of ineffectiveness of counsel. The fun fact is that attorneys who are unlicensed by the State Bar organizations are allowed to practice before the EOIR and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Consequently there are many incompetent lawyers practicing immigration law, but that should not give illegal aliens the right to endless appeals.

The BDS movement, which is a non-violent Palestinian-led campaign that promotes boycotts, divestments, and sanctions against Israel to pressure the nation to meet its obligations under international law, is having an undeniable effect nine months into the catastrophe in Gaza. The effect is significant enough to compel propagandists on the Israeli English network ILTV to characterize the BDS movement as a definite “Trend,” as even state media is struggling to obscure the bleak and deteriorating economic reality of Israel’s wartime economy.

Amir Yaron, chief of the Bank of Israel, said in May that the wars in the north and south would cost $67 billion from 2023 to 2025. That in itself is not a damning figure, but taken in conjunction with other economic realities, such as the closure of over 40,000 small businesses in Israel, the decline in tourism, and the lack of young tech workers, a complete recovery looks implausible.

Hence, the mainstream media’s two news cycles this week focused on Google’s potential acquisition of Wiz, an Israeli cyber tech company. The move has been lauded as a vote of confidence in the strength and resilience of the Israeli tech economy. It is not. It is simply a matter of having the right product at the right time and a once-in-a-lifetime $23 billion acquisition that will not even close this year and will not lessen the geopolitical backlash from the Gaza War.

There have been many revolutions in the technology and the geography of global cargo transportation. The Portuguese design of caravels to cross the Atlantic and Indian Oceans from the 15th century; the replacement of wind with coal-fired steam in the shipping of the British empire which followed; and the invention of the petroleum engine for automobiles and aircraft to replace horse and bullock-drawn road carts – these are well known.

The time taken for each revolution from invention to full-capacity operation was not less than one generation.

The geographic switch of Russia’s export and import trade from west to east, and also from north to south – this too is a revolution in cargo logistics; its scale, speed, and money cost have not been rivaled before. In Russian terms, it is faster than Joseph Stalin’s Five-Year schemes of industrialization from 1928 to 1942, and has not required force for implementation nor inflicted Stalin’s human casualties. For speed over time, the current Russian logistics revolution will take five years.
