"Your love of liberty, your respect for the laws, your habits of industry, and your practice of the moral and religious obligations, are the strongest claims to national and individual happiness." -- George Washington (1789)

After the second world war British planners were confronted by the outbreak of a Jewish uprising in Palestine, which the UK had run since securing a ‘mandate’ from the then League of Nations in 1922. 

This uprising led to a series of momentous events that shape the present-day Middle East: the British decision in February 1947 to withdraw from Palestine, the UN’s decree in November 1947 to partition the territory, the Jewish declaration of the state of Israel in May 1948 and the first Arab–Israeli war, in which Israeli forces annexed much of Palestine by December of that year.

British nationals are serving in some of Israel’s “craziest” combat units in Gaza where they view Palestinian fighters as “rats” and “animals”.

The soldiers have pledged to “kill these sons of whores” and “start pummelling them again.”

Declassified has gathered names and photographs of 15 Britons who have recently fought for Israel, and has partially identified another 10.

They are among at least 80 U.K. nationals who the Foreign Office knows to have enlisted in the IDF but is doing nothing to stop.

One of the soldiers, master sergeant Sam Sank, filmed himself fighting in Gaza between December 2023 and January 2024.

Declassified showed the footage to open source intelligence analyst Alysia Alexandra who located the neighbourhood where it was taken.

Former US President Donald Trump has vowed to settle the military conflict between Russia and Ukraine even before his inauguration in case he wins the 2024 presidential race.

"Before I even arrive at the Oval Office, shortly after we win the presidency… I will have the horrible war between Russia and Ukraine settled," Trump said on Saturday during a rally in Philadelphia.

During his speech, Trump also vowed to prevent World War III.

The US presidential election will be held on November 5. The main rivals in the race are US President Joe Biden, a Democrat, and his Republican predecessor, Donald Trump.

A senior US envoy has traveled to Vietnam for diplomatic talks just days after Russian President Vladimir Putin made a state visit to the Southeast Asian country.

Daniel Kritenbrink, the assistant US secretary of state for East Asia and Pacific affairs, insisted on Saturday that his trip was not related to the Russian delegation’s visit on Thursday. In fact, he told reporters in Hanoi that trust between the US and Vietnam is at an “all-time high.”

Kritenbrink’s comments came less than one week after the US Embassy in Hanoi rebuked the Vietnamese government for daring to host talks with Putin at a time when the Russia-Ukraine conflict is raging. “No country should give Putin a platform to promote his war of aggression and otherwise allow him to normalize his atrocities,” an embassy spokesperson told Reuters on Monday.

Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council has put an equal mark between the US authorities, the bandera regime and "insane fanatics."

"What happened is not military actions but a sneaky and vile terrorist attack against our people; moreover, it occurred on an Orthodox holiday, just like the massacre that extremists had carried out in Dagestan. Which is why now we do not differentiate between any of them, whether it is the American authorities, bandera regime or insane fanatics," he wrote on his Telegram channel, commenting on Ukraine’s missile strike on Sevastopol and militants’ attack on Derbent.

"The US bastards are supplying banderovtsy with cluster munitions and help them to take aim at targets. The Kiev bastards are choosing a beach filled with civilians as their target and press the button. Both will burn in hell; hopefully, not just in the sacral flames, but even before that, in the earthly fire," he wrote.

Former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has joined fighters from Ukraine’s notorious neo-Nazi Azov unit to pose for a photo while holding a banner bearing a symbol associated with the Third Reich’s SS.

The controversy erupted on Wednesday when several members of the Azov brigade, widely known for its neo-Nazi ideology and outlawed in Russia, were greeted by British MPs as part of a roundtable discussion on the return of the unit’s prisoners of war in the UK Parliament.

Founded as a neo-Nazi militia in 2014, Azov was a key participant in the fighting in Donbass prior to the outbreak of full-blown hostilities in 2022. During this time it was accused by the UN and several human rights organizations of engaging in torture, rape, and looting. It was eventually integrated into Ukraine’s National Guard, and in 2023 was expanded to a brigade.

A Stanford University research group has removed the Azov Brigade – an avowedly neo-Nazi Ukrainian military unit – from its list of “extremist organizations.” Officials in Kiev reportedly pressured the university to have the battalion, long-accused of war crimes and other atrocities, removed from the database.

Funded by the Pentagon and the US Department of Homeland Security, Stanford’s Mapping Militants Project (MMP) tracks the membership, activity, and relationships of more than 100 so-called extremist organizations, from the Irish Republican Army (IRA) and the Taliban to the Oath Keepers militia and Qanon movement in the US.

Russians of Jewish and Orthodox Christian faith are united in mourning for the people killed on Sunday in the southern republic of Dagestan, Patriarch Kirill, the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, has said. The militants who targeted the places of worship obviously meant to incite sectarian hatred and had “diabolic” intent, he added.

“Everything possible must be done to prevent even the possibility of radicalization of religious life, to exclude any forms of extremism and ethnic enmity,” the Patriarch said.

The spree of violence took place in the regional capital, Makhachkala, and the city of Derbent, 120km to the south on the Caspian Sea. In each city, a synagogue and an Orthodox church were targeted, presumably in coordinated strikes. In another assault, a police station came under gunfire.

Below is a typical example of how on Sunday June 23rd, the Rothschild owned Associated Press generates war propaganda by twisting everything upside-down:

The Russian leader [Vladimir Putin] is willing to challenge Western interests like never before. The pact that he signed with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un envisions mutual military assistance between Moscow and Pyongyang if either is attacked. Putin also announced for the first time that Russia could provide weapons to the isolated country, a move that could destabilize the Korean Peninsula and reverberate far beyond.

After the Western puppets are stupid enough to deliberately provoke World War III for years now as a direct existential threat to the Russian homeland, trespassing one Moscow red line after another, now when Putin is at the limit putting up with the West’s nonstop policy of provocation for decades, he has finally realized he must retaliate directly against the West. While Western MSM liars accuse him of “challenging Western interests like never before,” all Putin is doing is implementing the same things that US/West has been forever doing. For years, the Russian leader has shown remarkable restraint while over the last quarter century the West has not only falsely demonized him, but taken gross advantage of his cooler head prevailing by misjudging it as weakness.

Paul Whelan, an American arrested on espionage charges in Moscow nearly six years ago, has called for the US government to take whatever steps are necessary – such as incarcerating Russian citizens at Guantanamo Bay – to secure his release from prison.

Speaking on Friday in a telephone interview with CNN, Whelan suggested that the administration of US President Joe Biden hasn’t worked aggressively enough to free both him and Wall Street Journal correspondent Evan Gershkovich, who has been brought to trial on similar charges. Whelan was convicted of espionage and sentenced in 2020 to 16 years in prison.

Israeli tanks at edge of Rafah's al-Mawasi refuge zone, residents say

On Saturday, Palestinian health officials said at least 40 Palestinians had been killed in separate Israeli strikes in some northern Gaza districts.

Residents reported seeing Israeli tanks near al-Mawasi, where thousands are sheltering on Gaza's coastline [GETTY]

Israeli tanks advanced to the edge of al-Mawasi displaced persons' camp in the northwest of the southern Gaza city of Rafah on Sunday in fierce fighting with Hamas-led fighters, residents said.

Images of two Israeli tanks stationed on a hilltop overlooking the coastal area went viral on social media, but Reuters could not independently verify them.

"The fighting with the resistance has been intense. The occupation forces are overlooking the Mawasi area now, which forced families there to head for Khan Younis," said one resident, who asked not to be named, on a chat app.

More than eight months into Israel's war in the Hamas-administered Palestinian enclave, its advance is focused on the two areas its forces have yet to seize: Rafah on Gaza's southern tip and the area surrounding Deir al-Balah in the centre.

Tel Aviv carried out several attacks across the Gaza Strip this weekend. On Saturday, Gaza’s Health Ministry said more than 100 Palestinians were killed, along with 169 others wounded, in 24 hours amid various strikes. This was the deadliest day in the Strip since the June 8 massacre on the Nuseirat refugee camp, which slaughtered at least 274 Palestinians and wounded hundreds more. A UN facility was hit on Sunday, killing at least four people.

On Friday, the IDF bombarded areas in southern Gaza near the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) base at the al-Mawasi camp, a location Tel Aviv claimed was a safe zone for displaced Palestinians following its invasion of Rafah. Palestinian officials say two Israeli strikes killed a minimum of 25 people and wounded 50 others, the Associated Press reported. The victims were among hundreds of Palestinians sheltering in tents outside the ICRC office.

Is it legal for a U.S. president to order American troops to take action that enables a genocide? I should think not. The president takes essentially the same oath of office as military members do. Its essential thrust is supporting and defending the U.S. Constitution. 

As the civilian commander-in-chief, the President issues orders to the military that are of course authoritative, that must be obeyed, except when those orders are illegal. So, for example, U.S. presidents shouldn’t be able to order torture, nor should they be able to issue orders that contribute to genocide, and, if they do, service members are within their rights to refuse to obey such orders.

Experts have warned Hezbollah could overwhelm Israel's Iron Dome air defence system all-out war breaks out with Lebanon - with the Iran-backed terror group threatening 10 times the firepower of Hamas.

There are mounting fears of a full-scale conflict erupting as Hezbollah stepped up drone and missile strikes, forcing more than 60,000 people from their homes in northern Israel close to the border with Lebanon.

Officials and analysts say thousands of fighters from Iran-backed groups in the Middle East are ready to come to Lebanon to join Hezbollah in its battle with Israel.

There have been almost almost daily exchanges of fire in the north since fighters from the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip carried out last October 7's attacks on southern Israel that set off a war in Gaza.

The @gatesfoundation money was also used in a project headed by both Yoshihiro Kawaoka and Ron Fouchier (he previously modified H5N1 to become airborne transmissible in ferrets at the Erasmus Medical Center), where they provided the two additional mutations that would be needed in Egyptian H5N1 viruses to create variants with the mammalian “transmissibility features” identified in the Kawaoka study. This indicates that the @gatesfoundation funded bioterrorist-like activities involving H5N1, providing blueprints for other bad actors who may want to create a bioweapon.

U.S. prosecutors are recommending to senior Justice Department officials that criminal charges be brought against Boeing after finding the planemaker violated a settlement related to two fatal crashes, two people familiar with the matter told Reuters.

The DOJ must decide by July 7 whether to prosecute Boeing. The recommendation of prosecutors handling the case has not been previously reported. In May, officials determined the company breached a 2021 agreement that had shielded Boeing from a criminal charge of conspiracy to commit fraud arising from two fatal crashes in 2018 and 2019 involving the 737 MAX jet.

Under the 2021 deal, the DOJ agreed not to prosecute Boeing over allegations it defrauded the Federal Aviation Administration so long as the company overhauled its compliance practices and submitted regular reports. Boeing also agreed to pay $2.5 billion to settle the investigation.

Lebanon has roundly dismissed as “ridiculous” a report by the British daily The Telegraph alleging that Hezbollah is storing weapons at Beirut’s Rafic Hariri International Airport, vowing to take legal actions against the newspaper.

The Telegraph article “seeks to tarnish the airport reputation,” caretaker Minister of Public Works and Transport Ali Hamieh told a press conference on Sunday.

He sharply criticized the British newspaper for failing to use reliable sources in its article about the airport.

Lebanon “will file a lawsuit against The Telegraph because its article aims to damage the reputation of the airport,” the minister said.

NATURE’S RESOURCES AS AN ASSET CLASS

The financialisation of nature's resources as an asset class in South East Asia has several manifestations, including carbon credits, green bonds, and other initiatives that promote so called “sustainable development and environmental conservation.” Within the altruistic trappings of tapping into humanity’s desire to “save the planet” and for the perpetual quest to attain “the greater good” mythos, this dystopian road paved with green gold, is nothing short of a giant Ponzi scheme. It is a system of tyrannical control over (complicit) corporations and (unwilling?) citizens, whom shall be herded into a system of carbon tax, carbon credits, lifestyle choice curtailment, and ultimately, deprivation and despair

Anthony Fauci’s new book has granted the public more detail concerning the truly impeccable timing of Pfizer’s mRNA Covid-19 vaccine trial data rollout.

We already know that Pfizer decided to inexplicably delay publishing the results of their mRNA trial from October 2020 to right after the election, following public and private efforts to prevent President Trump from being granted an “October surprise” that would’ve been helpful to his campaign.

The plan is supposedly aimed at tackling so-called “climate change” by cooling the Earth.

However, experts have been raising the alarm that such practices could have a devastating impact on the Earth’s natural climate.

Last month, Bill Gates-funded University of Washington researchers sprayed reflective aerosols into clouds over the ocean near San Francisco Bay.

The practice, called “marine cloud brightening,” allegedly aims to cool down the surface below and “reverse global warming.”

However, a peer-reviewed study published in the prestigious Nature Climate Change journal raises major concerns about the practice.

The researchers found that the experimental geoengineering methods may reduce heat exposure in the region significantly.

Alarmingly, though, they warn that the “same interventions under mid-century warming minimally reduce or even increase heat stress in the Western United States and across the world.”

The study team’s lead researcher, UC San Diego oceanographer Jessica Wan, told The Guardian:

“It shows that marine cloud brightening can be very effective for the US West Coast if done now, but it may be ineffective there in the future and could cause heatwaves in Europe.”

Interestingly, the geoengineering experiment was later shut down by San Francisco’s far-left officials.

One of the more common lies peddled by top Democrats, including of course President Joe Biden, is that former President Donald Trump called neo-Nazis 'very fine people' during his press conference following the Charlottesville "Unite the Right" rally in 2017.

Except, anyone who watched the full clip knows it's bullshit, which is why anyone peddling the hoax has been operating in bad faith.

Biden Admin Asked Amazon To Hide Vaccine-Critical Books During Pandemic

Authored by Steve Watson via modernity.news,

The Biden Administration pressured Amazon to hide books for sale on its platform that were critical of vaccines during the pandemic, it has been revealed.

The findings were presented by the House Judiciary Committee and Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government in documents that show Amazon reduced the visibility of titles that the government deemed overly critical of big pharma shots.

The documents show that some books were simply generally critical of vaccines, with several written by medical professionals. Some were even just reviews of scientific studies.

The Federal government compiled a “Do Not Promote” list, to which more than 40 titles were added

Toxic chemicals released during fires following the Norfolk Southern train derailment in Ohio last year spread to 16 states and likely Canada, according to a study released Wednesday.

The pollution, some of which came from the burning of vinyl chloride, a carcinogen, spread over 540,000 square miles, showing clearly that "the impacts of the fire were larger in scale and scope than the initial predictions," the authors of the study, published in Environmental Research Letters, found.

NTSB/Handout via Xinhua

Lead author David Gay, coordinator of the National Atmospheric Deposition Program, said that he was very surprised by the way the chemicals had spread. "I didn't expect to see an impact this far out," he told The Washington Post.

Gay said the results did not mean "death and destruction," as concentrations were low on an absolute scale—"not melting steel or eating paint off buildings"—but that they were still "very extreme" compared to normal, with measurements higher than recorded in the previous ten years.

Via Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com,

Financial writer and precious metals broker Bill Holter has been documenting all the unpayable debt that has been building up in the financial system like cancer. 

The latest black hole of default is coming from a big bank in Japan.  Norinchukin Bank is selling $63 billion in Treasuries and other sovereign bonds to stay afloat.  Then there is recent news announced by the FDIC that 63 US banks (the names are being kept secret) have more than $500 billion in losses, and let’s not forget about the trillions in losses sitting on the books of European banks ready to suck the world into a black debt hole.  This is just a few of many on a long list of destabilizing problems that can tank the entire over-indebted financial system. 

Holter warns, “The list is so long..."

"it could be a banking problem.  It could be a derivatives problem.  It could be a derivatives problem in the stock market, the bond market and you could see a failure to deliver in silver.  Some type of warfare could crash the system.  You could see warfare in Ukraine, Israel or Taiwan. 

The system is so unstable, at this point, it could be anything that could bring it down

The EU has launched an Excessive Debt Proceeding against France. It won’t stop there.

Debt Proceedings

Please note the EU Rebukes France, Italy and Others Over Excessive Debt.

The assessments of the 27 EU states’ budgets and economies will be published by the European Commission on Wednesday, with France, Italy and Belgium among the member states to be reprimanded over their accumulated excessive new debt.

The Commission said it was satisfied that “the opening of a deficit-based excessive deficit procedure is warranted” in the case of seven countries. The group also included Hungary, Malta, Poland and Slovakia.

According to the latest report published by the non-partisan California Legislative Analyst's Office (LAO) which is an agency of the California government, is overseen by the Joint Legislative Budget Committee of the California State Legislature, and performs and publishes extensive analyses of the state's budget in addition to providing fiscal and policy advice to the California Legislature, contrary to prior reports of over substantial job gains in the deep blue state in 2023, the reality was far uglier.

In a report titled "Newest Early Jobs Revision Shows No Net Job Growth During 2023" we learn just that: the Early Revisions to state-level data flagged here previously, suggests that California actually lost jobs during the fourth quarter of last year. As the report details, "based on the most recent release of the early benchmarks, payroll jobs declined by 32,000 from September 2023 through December 2023. On the contrary, the preliminary monthly reports showed a solid increase in job growth (+117,000 jobs) at the time."

This, according to the LAO, means that "with the fourth quarter revision, calendar year 2023 saw essentially no net job growth (+9,000 jobs overall)."
