'America is back with Biden' gushes President Macron

biden macron
The United States is back as a cooperative leader of the free world under President Joe Biden, France's Emmanuel Macron said on Saturday, illustrating the relief felt by many key U.S. allies that the tumult of Donald Trump's presidency is over.

Macron's remark echoes that of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson who hailed Biden on Thursday as "a big breath of fresh air".


Comment: Meanwhile the man on the street as well as 120+ retired US generals are questioning Biden's mental health: 120+ retired US generals sign letter questioning Biden's mental health, 2020 election result, warn of 'tyrannical govt'


Neither Macron nor Johnson drew an explicit parallel between Biden and Trump, though both praised Biden's distinctly cooperative tone and officials said there was relief after Trump at times shocked and bewildered many European allies.


Comment: Considering the current line up of leaders in Europe and the disasters they're wreaking in their respective countries, that's not necessarily a bad thing.

U.S. President Joe Biden brought a sharply different tone to the Group of Seven summit from his predecessor Donald Trump by allowing frank and collaborative discussion of global issues without sowing disruptive chaos, a source with knowledge of the discussions told Reuters:
"It used to be complete chaos. Before, we were on edge the entire, the whole time just trying to keep the G7 intact - and you don't have to worry about that now. You can have a frank discussion without having to start it off by saying: 'No. Russia is not going to come back into the G7,'"
The United States is back as a cooperative leader of the free world under Biden, France's Emmanuel Macron said earlier on Saturday, illustrating the relief felt by many key U.S. allies that the tumult of Trump's presidency is over.

US President Joe Biden at Cornwall Airport, Britain
June 13, 2021
US President Joe Biden was seen wandering around a cafe in Cornwall, England, before his wife stepped in and led him away. Conservatives, who have long questioned Biden's mental acuity, called the video "painful to watch."

Video footage posted online on Friday, but largely ignored by the mainstream media, shows Biden wandering slowly onto a cafe terrace. Someone on the terrace, most likely an ITV journalist, asks "How are your meetings going in Cornwall?" Biden then freezes, flashes a thumbs-up, and replies "Very good."

First Lady Jill Biden then steps in and beckons her husband toward her, before leading him away by the hand as diners laugh out loud.

Biden's demeanor and apparent confusion raised eyebrows online, particularly among American conservatives, who have claimed since last year's campaign that Biden was showing signs of cognitive decline. Video footage of Biden's verbal gaffes and blunders since becoming president - like forgetting the names of his own officials and losing his train of thought at his single solo press conference - have only lent weight to their claims.


"This is really painful to watch," conservative journalist Kyle Becker tweeted.

Biden's supposed "senior moment" wasn't the aging Democrat's only blunder at the weekend-long G7 summit in Cornwall. News footage on Saturday showed British Prime Minister Boris Johnson correcting Biden, after Biden introduced the president of South Africa after Johnson had already done so. The video then shows Johnson apparently attempting to stop Biden talking to the group of world leaders at a meeting.

UK MP warns 'if vaccines don't deliver us freedom, nothing will', as gov't threatens to delay lifting lockdown

Commuters wearing face coverings due to Covid-19, enter Oxford Circus London Underground station in central London on June 7, 2021.
Covid Recovery Group chairman and MP Mark Harper opposes delays in the lifting of Covid-19 restrictions, arguing Brits will "have to learn to live with" the virus now that the vulnerable are jabbed, or suffer constant lockdown.

Harper took to Twitter after an article on Sunday in the Telegraph citing an unnamed minister claimed the planned lockdown-easing date of June 21 could be delayed until as late as next spring due to the government's concern about the spread of Covid-19 variants.

The Forest of Dean MP warned in response that it "would be devastating for business confidence, people's livelihoods and wellbeing" if the reopening were delayed, and would send "a clear message to employers and workers that, when Covid cases increase this (and every) autumn and winter, they cannot rely on Govt to keep our society open."

Putin says Russia would accept conditional handover of cyber criminals to US

President Vladimir Putin has said Russia would be ready to hand over cyber criminals to the United States if Washington did the same for Moscow and the two powers reached an agreement to that effect. Putin made the comments in an interview aired in excerpts on state television on Sunday ahead of a June 16 summit with U.S. President Joe Biden in Geneva. Ties between the powers are badly strained over an array of issues.

The Russian leader said he expected the Geneva meeting to help establish bilateral dialogue and revive personal contacts, adding that important issues for the two men included strategic stability, Libya and Syria, and the environment. Putin also praised Biden for having shown "professionalism" when the United States and Russia agreed this year to extend the New START nuclear arms control treaty.

The White House has said Biden will bring up ransomware attacks emanating from Russia at the meeting. That issue is in the spotlight after a cyber attack disrupted the North American and Australian operations of meatpacker JBS USA.

How Washington is positioning Syrian Al-Qaeda's founder as its 'asset'

A PBS Frontline special is the latest vehicle in a PR campaign to legitimize rebranded Syrian al-Qaeda, HTS, and market its leader Mohammad Jolani as a competent American "asset."

March 2021 marked the 10th anniversary of the Western regime-change war on Syria. And after a decade of grueling conflict, Washington is still maneuvering to extend its longstanding relationship with the Salafi-jihadist militants fighting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

With the northwestern province of Idlib under the control of a self-proclaimed "Syrian Salvation Government" led by the rebranded version of Syria's al-Qaeda franchise, and protected under the military aegis of NATO member state Turkey, powerful elements from Brussels to Washington have been working to legitimize its leader.

This June, PBS Frontline aired a special, "The Jihadist," featuring a sit-down interview with Abu Mohammad al-Jolani, de facto president of the "Syrian Salvation Government" and founder of the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda originally called Jabhat al-Nusra, today re-branded as Hay-at Tahrir al-Sham, or HTS.

Having traded in his battlefield garb for a freshly pressed suit, Jolani was presented with the once unthinkable opportunity to market himself to a Western audience and pledge that his forces pose no threat to the US homeland because they were merely focused on waging war against Syria's "loyalist" population.

Child sacrifice and deception in the time of the Covidians

Montezuma's message to children
'If the Aztecs seem unrecognisably alien to the modern mind, it may be that the modern mind does not recognise itself in the Aztecs. We cannot understand the Aztecs because we do not want to understand ourselves' - John Gray, The Soul of the Marionette

In his magnificent book Conquistador: Hernan Cortes, King Montezuma and the Last Stand of the Aztecs, historian Buddy Levy describes the reaction of Montezuma to the arrival of the Spanish:
'After his priests sacrificed a dozen children, believing that the survival of the universe depended on them, Montezuma would kneel before flickering firelight and pray for vision, for truth.'
When Montezuma allowed Cortes into the shrine to witness scenes no European had ever seen, Cortes was disgusted. He declared the Aztec idols 'not gods, but evil things . . . devils'. Montezuma was defiant:
'We hold them to be very good. They give us health and rain and crops and weather, fertility and all the victories we desire. So we are bound to worship them and sacrifice to them . . . Say nothing more against them.'
On June 3 the MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency) approved the use of the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid-19 'vaccine' in children aged 12-15. According to the BMJ, only eight children are recorded in the official Covid fatalities data, all with known serious pre-existing conditions.

Comment: As the 'excitement' for vaccination wanes, the number of persons vaccinated must keep rising to encourage others to follow. Therefore, including a lower age bracket is being made to suffice this ploy. It's about the numbers and the cash cow, not the health of the public.

A day of reckoning in Syria's Idlib

“Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham” fully controls Idlib, Syria
It has been a long time coming, and it seems that an escalation in Greater Idlib might be on the way. After frequent ceasefire violations by Hay'at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and other terrorist groups of the so-called "moderate opposition", the cup seems to be spilling over.

On June 10th, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Russian support began a heavy shelling operation on various HTS positions throughout Greater Idlib. Significantly, a pinpoint strike claimed the lives of HTS' military spokesman, Abu Khalid al-Shami, media coordinator, Abu Musab al-Homsi, and Mu'ataz al-Nasir, commander of the group's internal security forces. Four other, unnamed militants were also killed.

Footage was released from a Russian drone which was tracking the three commanders. They were reportedly located with advanced electronic intelligence systems and likely targeted with a Russian 2K25 Krasnopol laser-guided artillery shell, with their vehicle being laser painted with an UAV prior to that.

US sanctions block Venezuela paying for coronavirus vaccines

Venezuela's Vice President Delcy Rodriguez gestures as she speaks during a news conference in Caracas, Venezuela, April 7, 2021.
Venezuelan officials said on Thursday the country's government has been unable to complete a payment required to receive coronavirus vaccines because transfers to the global COVAX vaccine program had been blocked.

The government of President Nicolas Maduro for months said it was unable to pay for the COVAX program because of U.S. sanctions, and then in March announced that it had made almost all the required $120 million payment.

Vice President Delcy Rodriguez in a televised broadcast on Thursday said the government had been unable to pay down the remaining $10 million because four operations had been blocked.

Comment: The international community, particularly those in the West, have spent the last year fearmongering that there's a pandemic raging across the planet and the only way to stop it is through vaccination of the entire population, including babies, and yet at the same time they're silent on US sanctions that are stopping Venezuela from helping to do just that.

Clearly this isn't a deadly pandemic and one doesn't need these experimental, scandal-ridden vaccines to stop the relatively harmless coronavirus:

Imagine if you spent months planning an elaborate 50th birthday party for yourself — hiring performers, decorating your place and inviting everyone you know — and when the big day finally arrived . . . no one bothered to show up. Embarrassing, right?

Well, that's essentially what happened to the European Union in 2007 when they threw themselves a 50th Anniversary Extravaganza. Reports at the time talked of EU-sponsored "citizen parties," street festivals and public celebrations that were largely ignored by the public. About the only thing that Europeans can ever agree on is their differences, and even after 50 years of conditioning it seemed few outside of Brussels were stirred by the EU flag or the thought of half a century of political union.

Perhaps that's because 2007 did not really mark the 50th anniversary of the EU or 50 years of political union at all. No, 2007 was the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Rome, a 1957 compact to form a common market and customs union between six European nations. It is doubtful that many people beyond the handful of Bilderbergers and globalists who signed the treaty could have imagined that it would result in a grandiose anniversary celebration for the European Union 50 years hence.

(FUN FACT: The "Treaty of Rome" that was signed on March 25, 1957 was literally a blank document because "[t]he Italian state printer had not met the deadline.")

It makes you wonder: Is there any seemingly innocuous event taking place in the world today that, 50 years from now, may be commemorated as the moment that some monstrous globalist institution was born?

As it turns out, there is just such an event that took place this month that may lead to a "50 Years of Global Government" celebration in June 2071. Do you know what it is?

Democrats disrespect Pulse nightclub massacre anniversary by touting false narrative re anti-LGBT motive of terrorist

A makeshift memorial marked the one-year anniversary of the 2016 Pulse nightclub massacre in Orlando.
Democratic senators are marking the five-year anniversary of the Pulse nightclub massacre by speaking out against anti-LGBT hatred, even though media outlets admitted years ago that the motive was unrelated to sexual orientation.

Senators Cory Booker (New Jersey), Ed Markey (Massachusetts), Tammy Duckworth (Illinois) and Dick Durbin (Illinois) were among those who issued statements on Saturday reminding followers of the shooting, and decrying anti-LGBT hate crimes. Duckworth was especially explicit and outraged, asserting that 49 people were killed at the Orlando club in a "hate-filled shooting" in which "the LGBTQ+ community was targeted and killed, all because they dared to live their lives."

Comment: As with some other mass shootings, early eye-witness testimony doesn't square with the official tale. We again find statements about multiple shooters, which the MSM magically transform into the usual 'lone shooter' narrative. From a certain point of view, it looks as if the true facts are being papered over with the hot-button issue of LGBT rights.
