Ukrainian soldiers target Russian positions from a US-supplied M777 howitzer in Kharkov Region, July 14, 2022.
US Secretary of State Blinken says Washington won't recognize "annexed" regions as Russian.

Washington has no objections to Kiev using Western-supplied weapons to target territories that may decide to join Russia, as the US considers the votes to do so illegitimate, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said on Tuesday.

The US and its allies have supplied Ukraine with a variety of weapons, including tube and rocket artillery. At a joint press conference with his Indian counterpart Dr. Subrahmanyam Jaishankar in Washington, Blinken was asked if the US had any objections to Ukraine using those weapons to attack targets in Donetsk, Lugansk, Zaporozhye and Kherson, which just wrapped up a vote on joining Russia.

President Biden made the embarrassing error while thanking bipartisan members of Congress at a nutrition event near the White House.
President Biden asked for the late Rep. Jackie Walorski to identify herself at a Washington event Wednesday, forgetting that the Indiana Republican died in a car crash last month.

Biden made the embarrassing error while thanking bipartisan members of Congress at a nutrition event near the White House.

"I want to thank all of you here, including bipartisan elected officials like Representative [Jim] McGovern, Senator [Mike] Braun, Senator [Cory] Booker, Representative Jackie — are you here? Where's Jackie? — I think she was going to be here," the president said.

Is Italy's new Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni just another globalist trojan horse?

Giorgia Meloni
In a recent substack article Italy's new Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni was presented as an anti-globalist crusader that vehemently supports family values and national sovereignty.

But what if Meloni is simply yet another WEF puppet "penetrator" using reverse psychology to win the hearts and minds of her nation, when in reality she has been installed into power to surreptitiously advance the Great Reset agenda?

What if Meloni is just another Rockefeller asset, and member of their Aspen Institute?

It is worth nothing that the Aspen Institute has been awarded contracts by George Soros's Open Societies Foundation and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

What if was since her teenage years Meloni was a bonafide socialist?


CIA warned Germany of pipeline attack - Der Spiegel

Germany was forewarned ahead of this weeks attack on gas pipelines in the Baltic Sea, Der Spiegel claimed on Tuesday.

The CIA told Berlin "weeks ago" that the Russian Nord Stream infrastructure was vulnerable, according to the magazine.

Officials are now investigating after a massive gas leak appeared off the Danish island of Bornholm and seismologists confirmed detecting explosions on the sea floor.

A tip from the US spy agency was "received in Berlin during the summer," the outlet said, citing "several people familiar with the matter." Officially, however, the federal government declined to comment on intelligence-related matters.

Comment: The data is rather scant: Who did the CIA claim was going to attack? How did they know?

A Syrian boy on his bicycle looks at a convoy of US armored vehicles patrolling fields near the northeastern town of Qahtaniyah at the border with Turkey.
US occupation troops brought in weapons, munitions, and logistics equipment from their bases in Iraq to Syria's Hasakah governorate earlier this week, according to local sources.

The military convoy reportedly entered Syria through the Al-Waleed border crossing late on 26 September. It included 33 vehicles loaded with military equipment and headed for US occupation bases in the town of Rmelan.

A US military cargo plane was also spotted landing at the occupation base at Kharab al-Jeer Airport in the countryside of Hasakah.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova has asked who the EU intends to punish with the "strongest possible response" for damage to the Nord Stream gas pipelines.

The diplomat said Poland's former foreign minister has already identified the US as the party behind the apparent sabotage. Radoslaw Sikorski is well connected to Washington elites through his employment at various think tanks.

The two Nord Stream pipelines were seriously damaged this week in what is suspected to have been a deliberate attack.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen on Tuesday called the incident "sabotage action" and warned that "any deliberate disruption of active European energy infrastructure is unacceptable and will lead to the strongest possible response."


Putin slams West's 'predatory' food 'swindle'

Russian President Vladimir Putin
"Predatory" monetary and trade policies pursued by the US-led West are the primary cause of the global food crisis, Russian President Vladimir Putin has said.

Western nations are using their wealth and ability to print money to vacuum up food products from the global market, the Russian leader insisted during a government meeting on Tuesday. The unfolding crisis has been in the making for several years, he added.

"Some leading nations have financial and food policies that led to the result we are observing now," Putin said, adding that the behavior could be described as "predatory, without any exaggeration."

He noted that the US was a net exporter of food products last year, but now it is a net importer.

The Russian leader also reiterated his criticism of the Ukraine grain deal, which allowed Kiev to export food via the Black Sea. The arrangement was mediated by the UN and Türkiye, but Russia believes it is not working as intended, arguing that the shipments do little to alleviate food shortages in needy nations.

Putin cited last week's maritime traffic statistics in relation to the scheme, pointing out that most of the ships carrying Ukrainian grain that didn't report Türkiye as their destination went to one of the EU nations.
"Are they the poorest nations or what? The situation remains the same. Embarrassing as it sounds, but this is plain swindle, and nothing else."

Comment: The confluence of schemes are locking into place, marking the West's point of no return.


Constitution must be rewritten to stop Donald Trump, Politico's founding editor writes

Politico founding editor John F. Harris declared "The Best Way To Save The Constitution From Donald Trump Is To Rewrite It" in a Thursday column.

Harris claimed that the former president, though "a constitutional menace," exploited the Constitution's "defects" in order to hold his position. For the sake of holding back a second Trump term as well as promote several progressive causes, he wrote that working around the Constitution might become a necessity.
"Correcting or circumventing what progressives reasonably perceive as the infirmities of the Constitution, in fact, seems likely to be the preeminent liberal objective of the next generation. Progress on issues ranging from climate change to ensuring that technology giants act in the public interest will hinge on creating a new constitutional consensus. Trying to place more sympathetic justices on the Supreme Court is not likely to be a fully adequate remedy.

"There are more fundamental challenges embedded in the document itself — in particular the outsized power it gives to states, at a time when the most urgent problems and most credible remedies are national in character."

Comment: For the Constitution, there are no substitutes. Harris offers a civil war.

Escobar: Germany and EU have been handed over a declaration of war

War on pipelines
© Press TV
The sabotage of the Nord Stream (NS) and Nord Stream 2 (NS2) pipelines in the Baltic Sea has ominously propelled 'Disaster Capitalism' to a whole new, toxic level.

This episode of Hybrid Industrial/Commercial War, in the form of a terror attack against energy infrastructure in international waters signals the absolute collapse of international law, drowned by a "our way or the highway", "rules-based", order.

The attack on both pipelines consisted of multiple explosive charges detonated in separate branches close to the Danish island of Bornholm, but in international waters.

That was a sophisticated operation, carried out in stealth in the shallow depth of the Danish straits. That would in principle rule out submarines (ships entering the Baltic are limited to a draught of 15 meters). As for prospective "invisible" vessels, these could only loiter around with permission from Copenhagen - as the waters around Borholm are crammed with sensors, reflecting fear of incursion by Russian submarines.

Swedish seismologists registered two underwater explosions on Monday - one of them estimated at 100 kg of TNT. Yet as much as 700 kg may have been used to blow up three separate pipeline nodes. Such amount could not have possibly been delivered in just one trip by underwater drones currently available in neighboring nations.

The pressure on the pipelines dropped exponentially. The pipes are now filled with seawater.

FDA is using the COVID-19 vaccines as a "Platform Technology" for mRNA vaccine trials.

FDA vaccine
There was a World Health Organization (WHO) consultation in April, 2021 (online publication ahead of Dec, 2022 print) whereby US government officials laid out strategies for the process of future mRNA vaccine approvals by the FDA. A summary of this meeting has just been published online, ahead of print. So, we no longer have to speculate about what the FDA has decided about considering future mRNA vaccines and using the past pre-clinical data package as the foundation for these vaccines as being a "platform" technology.

The 2021 WHO informal consultation on regulatory considerations discussed these issues. Dr Keith Peden (Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER), Food and Drug Administration presented the FDA's experience and position on licensure of new mRNA vaccine products.
