VP Kamala Harris • Kid actors
A 13-year-old actor from California explained how he got the gig to local reporters. After sending in a monologue talking about topics he's passionate about, along with three questions he'd ask "a world leader" (Vice President Kamala Harris), child actor Trevor Bernardino got the part.

"Then after that, like a week later my agent called me and was like 'Hey Trevor you booked it,'" Trevor told a local media outlet. He didn't really realize he was going to get to sit down with the vice president ahead of time.

Harris used child actors in this collaborative special put together by YouTube, including Bernardino and four other kids from other parts of the USA. The premise is highlighting NASA to get kids more interested in learning about space.

Comment: The country is going down the sh*t hole while the VP is making staged kid movies and playing bingo.

Twitter has censored a thread in which Michael Robison explained that he regretted trading "my solid health, for a temporary freedom to travel and freedom from being criticized."

Robison — an investor, entrepreneur and the founder of SPARTN Monkey Rescue — had posted his personal story about his health declining after taking the COVID vaccine and warned people to "THINK, STUDY & BE AWARE" before getting it themselves.

"I am not anti-vaccine... but I will caution.... Proceed with care!!! Police cars revolving light I am now fighting a T-Cell Lymphoma as a result of the degraded MRNA Protein Spike via dendritic reaction, called by Pfizer a waning immunity! It is not truly a safe precaution for #COVID19," Robison wrote.

Pompus Maximus pays his dues: Proclaims 'Israel is not an apartheid state' while standing in an illegal West Bank settlement

Mike Pompeo speaks at the Psagot Winery
Former US secretary of state Mike Pompeo called Israel 'a democracy where faiths can be practiced' during a visit to the Psagot winery.

Israel is not an apartheid state and it does not "occupy" the biblical heartland of Judea and Samaria, former US secretary of state Mike Pompeo said on Sunday during a special visit to the Psagot winery in the West Bank.

"This is the rightful homeland for the people of Israel here in Judea and Samaria," Pompeo said.

"We recognized that this is not an occupied nation, this is not an apartheid country. It is a democracy where faiths can be practiced from all of the Abrahamic traditions," Pompeo said.

Comment: Psagot Winery has been at the heart of several BDS battles over boycotts of Israeli products produced in the Occupied West Bank. The winery was established on stolen Palestinian private property.
Before 1967, Jabel Tawil was known to locals as "Kuwaiti hill" because of numerous visitors from the Persian Gulf who hiked in the area.[6][4] In 1964, some of the land was purchased by the Jerusalem municipality for a future tourist resort.[6] In the Six-Day War, it came under Israeli occupation. From September 1976, Arabs were prohibited from building in the area.[7]

According to ARIJ, Israel confiscated 780 dunams of land from the nearby Palestinian town of Al-Bireh in order to construct Psagot.[8] There is also an archaeological site near some of the Caravillas on the hill of Psagot.

In 1981, Ariel Sharon, then Israeli Minister of Defense, told Pinchas Wallerstein, head of the Mateh Binyamin Regional Council, that he would support initiatives to settle the area.[4] In July 1981, Wallerstein moved the council headquarters to the hill, then occupied by a military intelligence base. Five families from the Jerusalem neighborhood of Beit VeGan took up residence there. A year later, they were joined by a group from the Kerem B'Yavneh yeshiva who came to create a kollel.[6][4]

According to B'Tselem, Psagot prevents the expansion of Ramallah and cuts it off from the surrounding villages.[9] During the course of the Second Intifada, snipers shot at Psagot from buildings in Ramallah, leading to the construction of a concrete wall to protect the inhabitants. In 2001, the Israeli army stationed nearby fired two missiles into Ramallah targeting Marwan Barghouti.[10]

Writing in November 2019, Gideon Levy and Alex Levac noted:
"The land is owned by Palestinians, with documents to prove it - but is now the site of a Jewish winery."[..] "This is the estate of Yaakov Berg, CEO of the Psagot winery, in the central West Bank. Berg's house stands on section 233 of bloc No. 17. This property belongs to two sisters, Amal and Keinat Quran and their cousin, Karima - but they don't have any access to it. The grapes are planted on sections 219-220, which is owned by Huria Quran, another relative.

That petite, elderly woman is also unable to get to her property."


With its plan to unite Eurasia from sea to sea, Russia is betting the days of total US economic supremacy are now coming to an end

Inaugurated in July 2012, the Russky Bridge in Vladivostok is 1,885 meters long, with its central section suspended by cables is 1,104 meters
The centre of the world is moving. While once it sat somewhere within the Atlantic, balanced between Europe and the US, it is now moving east. With Asia on the rise, Russia is now planning its role at the heart of two continents.

The annual Eastern Economic Forum, held in Vladivostok, has just come to an end. Focusing on the development of Russia's Far East and enhancing interconnectivity between Russia and Asia, it has become a key arena for the promotion of Russia's Greater Eurasian Partnership.

The Partnership is a relatively new initiative. Ever since former Soviet premier Mikhail Gorbachev's concept of a Common European Home, Russia has pursued the objective of creating an inclusive Europe without dividing lines. The aspirations for Greater Europe unofficially ended in 2014 with the Western-backed 'Maidan', which overthrew a democratically elected government in Ukraine, and confirmed that Moscow would have no place in the new Europe. Instead, it would be organised solely around the EU and NATO. Russia has since abandoned the Western-centric foreign policies it had pursued for the past 300 years, since Peter the Great first attempted to "return" Russia to Europe.

Comment: The world is fed up with the Empire's bullying. Overtly or covertly, countries are building new ties to free themselves from it. One the other hand:

Will Vaccine-Linked Deaths Rise Sharply This Winter?

grim reaper
"I am concerned about the possibility that the new vaccines aimed at creating immunity against the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein have the potential to cause microvascular injury to the brain, heart, liver and kidneys in a way that does not appear to be assessed in the safety trials." Dr J. Patrick Whelan
"We are dealing with evil. In case you hadn't noticed." Robert W Malone, MD, Twitter

Why does everyone have to be vaccinated?

Answer- In order to save lives. Vaccines provide immunity which helps in the fight against disease.

Question- So the vaccines prevent infection?

Answer- Not exactly, but the vaccines do provide temporary immunity that typically lasts about 6 months.

Question- Then what?

Answer- Well, then the public health experts recommend that eligible people - particularly old and immune-compromised people- get a "booster".

Question- So, another injection?

Answer- Yes.

Question- Has the booster been adapted to the new "Delta" variant that's spread across the US and the world?

Answer- No, it hasn't. It's the same vaccine as before.


America's debt crisis could well shake the world. Cut off by sanctions & suspicion, Russia should ironically find itself insulated

collapse rome us empire
The long-awaited American financial crisis appears to be on its way. Inflation is increasing, energy prices are out of control, and debt levels are already unsustainable. Washington has few tools left, and an awful lot to lose.

An American financial and currency crisis seems to be building, ready to flood the world and result in dramatic shifts in the international distribution of power. However, Russia has been preparing for the coming tumult, with a strategy that can be summarized as simply getting out of the splash zone. Besides ensuring fiscal discipline, the strategic partnership with China has focused on decoupling from the US-led international financial system.

Kicking the can down the road

The benefits that come with being able to print the world's reserve currency are, sadly, also a curse. The US has been able to run massive deficits for years to have a living standard and an empire that was beyond its means, while politicians have been able to claim the imbalances were a sign of a healthy economy, evidenced by the willingness of the world to lend the US such vast amounts of money. The plague of printing the world's trade and reserve currency is that it erodes the need for fiscal discipline as problems can be kicked down the road.

Comment: Incredibly, 40% of all US dollars currently in global circulation were 'printed' - digitally-issued for the most part - in just the last 12 months. This kind of fiscal irresponsibility is proof positive that the US is no longer 'fit to rule'.


Iraq captures ISIS finance chief and former deputy leader Sami Jasim al-Jaburi

Sami Jasim Muhammad al-Jaburi, the ISIS 'banker' who controlled the terror group's £1.5billion stolen fortune, was captured by Iraqi security forces
Iraqi security forces escort captured ISIS finance chief and former deputy leader Sami Jasim al-Jaburi, after his arrest in an unidentified third country.

Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi announced on Monday the capture of one of the top leaders of ISIS. Al-Kadhimi said in a Twitter post that Sami Jasim al-Jaburi, the former deputy of the terror group and its head of finance, was detained in a third country, which he declined to name, by Iraqi intelligence forces in a "complex external operation."

Al-Jaburi, born in Iraq in 1973, was a deputy to slain ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and is believe to have remained close to the group's current commander Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurashi.

Al-Jaburi was designated as a terrorist by the U.S. government and there was a $5 million reward on offer from the State Department for information leading to his arrest.

Hair sample test reveals Navalny's benzo and lithium addictions his German doctors are covering up - plus hiding tropicamide poisoning

German clinical evidence of Alexei Navalny's chronic use of lithium and benzodiazepine drugs before his sensational collapse last year is being withheld and covered up by the Berlin doctors who obtained the evidence from testing a sample of Navalny's hair.

The significance of the hair testing was identified this month by an expert toxicologist employed by the British government. "[It] would be interesting," he said, requesting his name not be released, "to see the hair test as this will reflect only the drugs given up to six days and more earlier in Russia."

Dr Kai-Uwe Eckardt, the head of the team of German doctors treating Navalny in Berlin's Charité University Hospital, reported publicly last December that "a hair sample obtained on day 4 confirmed the presence of several of the compounds detected in blood and urine." Day-4 in Berlin meant August 24, four days after Navalny alleges he was poisoned in Tomsk by Novichok on orders of the Kremlin. Navalny's allegation was endorsed by the German, British and US governments on the evidence, they said at the time, of Navalny's tests in Germany.



Hundreds of thousands of US troops have not yet complied with vaccine mandate as deadlines near

Hundreds of thousands of U.S. service members remain unvaccinated or only partially vaccinated against the coronavirus as the Pentagon's first compliance deadlines near, with lopsided rates across the individual services and a spike in deaths among military reservists illustrating how political division over the shots has seeped into a nonpartisan force with unambiguous orders.

Overall, the military's vaccination rate has climbed since August, when Defense Department leaders, acting on a directive from President Joe Biden, informed the nation's 2.1 million troops that immunization would become mandatory, exemptions would be rare and those who refuse would be punished. Yet troops' response has been scattershot, according to data assessed by The Washington Post.

For instance, 90 percent of the active-duty Navy is fully vaccinated, whereas just 72 percent of the Marine Corps is, the data show, even though both services share a Nov. 28 deadline. In the Air Force, more than 60,000 personnel have just three weeks to meet the Defense Department's most ambitious deadline.

Deaths attributed to covid-19 have soared in parts of the force as some services struggle to inoculate their troops. In September, more military personnel died of coronavirus infections than in all of 2020. None of those who died were fully vaccinated, Pentagon spokesman Maj. Charlie Dietz said.

Comment: This is a threat, not a number. Even if it was 'a number', would it be true and accurate?

Comment: Given: An exercise in the use of 'No' within the context of 'a mandatory refusal of choice'.


Biden's DHS cancels remaining border wall contracts in Texas, asks Congress to fund 'Smarter' security measures

Border wall between USA and Mexico
The Biden administration's Department of Homeland Security recently cancelled US border wall contracts, with the reason being the available funds needed to be "consistent with their appropriated purpose" under the current law.

In terms of official numbers, when Pew Research last checked in, migrant encounters at the United States-Mexico border were at a 21-year high. Internationally, people as far away as Uzbekistan recognize that America's southern border is an open door they can walk in.

Comment: Biden's plan without a plan seems to be the standard for the whole administration.
