Thought for the day

"The first panacea of a mismanaged nation is inflation of the currency; the second is war. Both bring a temporary prosperity; both bring a permeant ruin. But both are the refuge of political and economic opportunists." -- Ernest Hemingway

The left-wing radical behind the heavily criticized 1619 Project took to Twitter to mock an Asian activist who raised concerns about subway safety in New York City — and as you might guess, lapdog leftists who follow Nikole Hannah-Jones on the social media platform were only too eager to pile on after her.

Prior to the epic collapse of his crypto exchange company, FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried made a name for himself as a Democrat megadonor, second only to leftist billionaire George Soros in the last election cycle. Democrat lawmakers are now facing pressure to return millions of dollars in political donations, particularly as FTX faces scrutiny for the possible misuse of funds and defrauding customers.

A man pictured with a Nazi flag at the Freedom Convoy may have been planted by a Liberal-friendly PR firm, according to a lawyer representing Freedom Convoy organizers.

Brendan Miller, the lawyer representing Freedom Corp., has claimed that an employee of Liberal-connected PR firm Enterprise Canada, Brian Fox, was seen with a Nazi flag during the protests earlier this year.

This shocking announcement seems to have confirmed the suspicions of many; that the participants seen carrying Nazi flags were actually part of a false flag operation concocted by the Liberal government to smear peaceful protesters.

Miller told the Public Order Emergency Commission (POEC) on Monday that the person holding a Nazi flag on the first weekend of the Freedom Convoy was Brian Fox of the crisis communications firm Enterprise Canada.

Well, if there was any doubt former Twitter heads were lovers of all things woke…

New Twitter CEO Elon Musk shared a video on Tuesday showing a closet filled with #StayWoke t-shirts that he discovered at Twitter HQ —hundreds of shirts with the slogan available in multiple colors.

Musk seemingly finds the whole thing hilarious.

According to Not The Bee, “The phrase ‘Stay Woke’ was mainstreamed after the Ferguson riots in 2014, when the media ran with the lie that black teen Michael Brown said ‘Hands up, don’t shoot’ before he was brutally murdered by a white cop.”

“The truth, of course, is that Brown was attacking the officer and never said those words, but the word ‘woke’ was used as a badge of honor for the new cult that wanted to use Brown’s death as a flashpoint to give America a communist makeover.”

Ukraine's energy operator Energoatom has announced Wednesday emergency power shutdowns in effect across all regions of the country amid a new large wave of Russian airstrikes. Sirens have been sounding throughout the day across the country. 

President Volodymyr Zelensky in follow-up estimated that 10 million Ukrainians now lack access to electricity due to the attacks. "There are emergency shutdowns in addition to planned, stabilization ones," he explained. "The elimination of the consequences of another missile attack against Ukraine continues all day."

Casualties have been reported in the eastern cities of Dnipro and Zaporizhzhia, and at least one person has been reported killed in Kiev. Speaking of the renewed attacks on the capital, Mykhailo Podolyak, head of the Office of the Ukrainian President’s office said, "A new massive attack on infrastructure facilities is underway."

He described, citing recent anti-air defense systems acquired from Western countries, "While someone is waiting for World Cup results and the number of goals scored, Ukrainians are waiting for another score – number of intercepted Russian missiles. A new massive attack on infrastructure facilities is underway. In NASAMS, IRIS-T and Air Defense Forces we trust."

Kiev's mayor, Vitali Klitschko, issued an emergency message on social media warning that ongoing Russian strikes are "Hitting one of the capital’s infrastructure facilities. Stay in shelters! The air alert continues." Also alarming is that the mayor in a follow-up message said that water services have been suspended in Kiev after the major strikes.

In his March 21 press briefing, State Department spokesman Ned Price told the gathered reporters that “President Zelenskyy has also made it very clear that he is open to a diplomatic solution that does not compromise the core principles at the heart of the Kremlin’s war against Ukraine.” A reporter asked Price, “What are you saying about your support for a negotiated settlement à la Zelenskyy, but on whose principles?” In what still may be the most remarkable statement of the war, Price responded, “this is a war that is in many ways bigger than Russia, it’s bigger than Ukraine.”

Price, who a month earlier had discouraged talks between Russia and Ukraine, rejected Kiev negotiating an end to the war with Ukraine’s interests addressed because US core interests had not been addressed. The war was not about Ukraine’s interests: it was bigger than Ukraine.

A month later, in April, when a settlement seemed to be within reach at the Istanbul talks, the US and UK again pressured Ukraine not to pursue their own goals and sign an agreement that could have ended the war. They again pressured Ukraine to continue to fight in pursuit of the larger goals of the US and its allies. Then British prime minister Boris Johnson scolded Zelensky that Putin "should be pressured, not negotiated with." He added that, even if Ukraine was ready to sign some agreements with Russia, the West was not.”

From the onset of the Ukraine war, the corporate media, politicians, and all the controlled NGOs throughout America and Western Europe were lockstep in their claim that the Russian military action in eastern Ukraine was unprovoked and unjustified—an act of aggression that could not be allowed to stand. 

There was one problem with this propaganda blitz: it was totally untrue. The Deep State—the  government elites, intelligence community, and the military establishment—has spent decades threatening and provoking Russia by pushing NATO up against their border.

You do not have to like Russia to see this, and you can detest Vladimir Putin until the cows come home. The fundamental issue remains the same: the Russians view NATO on their border as an act of aggression and a threat to their national security, and we have known this for decades.

The record is clear and unassailable.

From November 15 to 16, the G20 Summit took place in Indonesia, and contrary to Western attempts, Russia was an active and welcomed participant. On the eve of the Summit, the US called for Russia to be isolated, however, what transpired in Bali instead did not live up to Washington’s expectations – the Russian delegation, led by Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, was not abandoned despite all efforts and attempts.

Rather, the experienced Russian Foreign Minister was received at the Indonesian holiday island with red carpets and an Honour Guard on the runway. Even a traditional dance was performed for him. In this way, even Lavrov’s reception made it clear that the Russian delegation was a welcomed party to the G20. It is noted that not even US President Joe Biden was welcomed in the same way as Lavrov.

None-the-less, there were still attempts to tarnish Lavrov’s mission in Bali, with the AP news agency falsely claiming that Russia’s top diplomat was hospitalised. This news was then disseminated all over Western media, proving that Western media only wants to take advantage of any situation to spread false information against Russia.

The White House said Tuesday that Turkey has the “right to defend themselves” from Kurdish militant groups in northern Syria and Iraq following massive Turkish airstrikes in the region.

“Turkey does continue to suffer a legitimate terrorist threat, particularly to their south. They certainly have every right to defend themselves and their citizens,” National Security Council spokesman John Kirby told reporters.

Turkey launched the strikes in response to a bombing in Istanbul that killed six people, which it blamed on the Kurdistan Worker’s Party (PKK) and its Syrian affiliates, including the US-backed SDF. The operations killed members of the SDF, and they reportedly responded by firing rockets into a Turkish district near the Syrian border.

Ukrainian authorities have begun evacuating civilians from recently liberated sections of the Kherson and Mykolaiv regions, fearing that a lack of heat, power and water due to Russian shelling will make conditions too unlivable this winter.

Authorities urged residents of the two southern regions, which Russian forces have been shelling for months, to move to safer areas in the central and western parts of the country.

Top defense officials in Europe say arms shortages among Ukraine’s Western allies are forcing difficult conversations about how to balance support for Ukraine with concerns Russia may target them next.

NATO members that have sent billions of dollars worth of weapons and equipment are discussing what stockpile levels they need to meet their obligations under the mutual defense treaty. Decisions facing them now could have consequences for their their own security and for Ukraine, in its fight to repel Russia’s nine-month-old invasion.

“When you are continuing to give away ammunition to Ukraine and you have to evaluate and assess the risk you take for your own readiness, you will have to take into account the threat,” the chairman of NATO’s military committee, Adm. Rob Bauer, said at the Halifax International Security Forum this weekend.

The strain on stockpiles is “across the board,” and particularly sharp for ammunition, he said. In the years before some countries donated to Ukraine, they maintained stockpiles at half capacity or less because they saw little risk or couldn’t afford more, and took a “just-in-time, just-enough,” approach to the defense industry.
