NATO expands but original anti-Russia mission is static 73 years on

The organization is the heir to the throne that was vacated after Nazi Germany's defeat.

The foreign ministers of the NATO military alliance met this week for a summit in the Romanian capital Bucharest for what was a celebration of the bloc's expansion. The anti-Russia rhetoric and hostility were also effervescent. "Russia does not have a veto," crowed the delegates who swore to "not back down" in supplying even more deadly weaponry to Ukraine in order to strike Russia's heartlands.

It's astounding how such ghoulish warmongering can be projected as upholding international law, democracy and human rights.

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization was formed in 1949 and arguably marked the initiation of the Cold War when the world was demarcated into a U.S.-led camp and the Soviet Union. Remarkably, only four years prior, those nations were declared allies in the defeat of Nazi Germany.

Thus, within a metaphorical blink of an eye, the Soviet Union would be designated as the "new enemy". And that was even while the Soviet people were still grieving up to 30 million killed during the war against the Nazi Third Reich. The bloodlust is shocking but revealing.


Fact check: IRS watchdog destroys media claim that Trump ordered audits of James Comey and Andrew McCabe

Liberal media outlets like the New York Times and MSNBC claimed former President Donald Trump ordered audits of former FBI chiefs James Comey and Andrew McCabe for political payback. According to the Internal Revenue Service's internal watchdog, that's not true.

The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration determined that the IRS randomly selected Comey and McCabe for audits of their tax returns from 2017 and 2019 as part of a program the IRS uses to refine its technology, according to a report released Thursday. The watchdog found no evidence of malfeasance on the part of Trump or any Trump-appointed officials.

It's the latest media-propelled narrative disproved by federal watchdogs. The Department of Homeland Security's inspector general exonerated border patrol agents who were accused in the liberal media of whipping Haitian migrants as they crossed into the United States from Mexico. The Justice Department's inspector general debunked the infamous Steele dossier, which the media cited as evidence that the Trump campaign conspired with Russia to influence the 2016 election.


Analysis: Joe Biden's 'wide open' border expected to bring 2.6M illegal aliens to US next year

US President Joe Biden
For 2021, Steven Kopits with Princeton Policy Advisors accurately projected that about two million border crossers and illegal aliens would be apprehended. By this year's end, Kopits projects about 2.3 million will have been apprehended. These estimates do not include the hundreds of thousands, potentially millions, who will successfully cross the southern border.

Now, Kopits projects that Biden's policies will see 2.6 million border crossers and illegal aliens apprehended along the border in 2023 — another record-shattering annual level of illegal immigration.

If the projections pan out, some 6.9 million border crossers and illegal aliens will have been apprehended at the border since 2021 to 2023 under Biden. This is a foreign population just two million short of New York City's resident population.

Exclusive: Biden DHS has no plan after Title 42 ends, says source

Tent city at the border
A senior source within Customs and Border Protection tells Breitbart Texas that the Department of Homeland Security is not engaged in any substantive planning to confront the expected surge in migration once Title 42 is lifted per court order. Meanwhile, the source says Mexican immigration authorities are already at work to dismantle migrant camps set up along the border.

The source adds that Border Patrol sector leaders have been instructed to prepare for a surge in migrant crossings by exploring additional detention facilities and working with non-government agencies to increase shelter space. The source says most of those resources along the border are already exhausted and warns the time given during a temporary stay in the court order was squandered.

On November 15, District Judge Emmet Sullivan ordered DHS to discontinue using the COVID-19 Title 42 authority to expel migrants with immediate effect. The judge subsequently granted a stay of his own order until December 21, with "great reluctance" at the request of the Biden Administration.

Although the source says no real plan to deal with the expected influx has been put forth by DHS, in Mexico, authorities are dismantling rudimentary encampments to move mostly Venezuelan migrants away from the immediate border area. One camp housing hundreds of migrants in Juarez — opposite El Paso — was razed earlier this week.

Comment: The plan: Intentional 'human disruption and replacement'. Objective: Global turnover. Europe has the same issues.


International blood bank for the unvaccinated has been formed with members from at least 16 countries - demand for "pure blood" skyrockets

Unvaccinated patients who require transfusions can now access "pure blood" thanks to a new service called "SafeBlood Donation," which was launched by a Swiss naturopath named George Della Pietra.

SafeBlood Donation, which currently has members in at least 16 countries, has the long-term goal of opening blood banks that provide its members with unvaccinated plasma, VICE reported. According to George Della Pietra, the demand for "pure blood" has skyrocketed globally.

The Gateway Pundit previously reported that a peer-reviewed study in Italy found that 94% of people who experienced side effects after receiving mRNA vaccines had abnormal blood and contained foreign matter one month after vaccination.

The surgeons believed that the vaccine makers should provide an explanation as to what is within the shots and why those components are present. They said:
"In our experience as clinicians, these mRNA injections are very unlike traditional 'vaccines' and their manufacturers need, in our opinions, to come clean about what is in the injections and why it is there."
For this exact reason, a lot of people refuse blood transfusion if the donor had received a Covid vaccination.

Comment: To become a victim of the exponentially expanding global annihilation system, vaccination is not required.


Judicial Watch: Secret Service finds Hunter Biden gun probe documents it denied having

The Secret Service has found hundreds of documents it previously denied having in relation to the probe into Hunter Biden's alleged gun violations, conservative watchdog Judicial Watch revealed Thursday.

Judicial Watch has been investigating if the Secret Service protected Hunter from scrutiny after the president's son revealed in a 2019 text message the FBI got involved in the case of a missing firearm tossed in a Delaware dumpster by Hunter's former sister-in-law-turned-lover. Nobody was charged with wrongdoing, according to reports.

Text messages purportedly from Hunter reveal what appears to be a contradiction in an official Secret Service statement, which claims the agency had "no involvement" in an alleged case involving Hallie Biden finding a gun "inside of Hunter Biden's pickup" and tossing "it in a trash can behind a grocery store where they frequently shopped." Yet Hunter's text messages say "the police the FBI the Secret Service came on the scene."

The gun store owner who sold the weapon to Hunter reportedly refused to supply the paperwork to the Secret Service when they allegedly sought to retrieve it at the time of the incident, suspecting the agency's officers would keep the documents away from scrutiny.

Hunter has also allegedly made false statements on a gun purchase background check ATF form 4473. Conveying false inflation to ATF on form 4473 carries a fine of up to $250,000 and up to ten years in prison.

Judicial Watch has sued the Secret Service for all documents related to the firearm owned by Hunter.


Putin to Scholz: More Ukraine energy strikes 'inevitable' due to West pumping in weapons

Ukraine is bracing for further stepped-up Russian airstrikes targeting its energy infrastructure, with President Vladimir Putin on Friday confirming the next wave is imminent, telling his German counterpart Olaf Scholz that new attacks are "inevitable" due to the West's "destructive" policies.

"It was noted that the Russian Armed Forces had long refrained from precision missile strikes against certain targets on the territory of Ukraine," a Kremlin readout of the telephone call begins. "But now such measures have become a forced and inevitable response to Kyiv's provocative attacks on Russia's civilian infrastructure."

The statement emphasizes NATO's weapons pipeline into Kiev: "Attention was drawn to the destructive line of Western states, including Germany, that are pumping the Kyiv regime with weapons, and are training the Ukrainian military."

Comment: No different than NATO's tactics in Serbia or the U.S. in Libya and Iraq.

Europe begins to realize that US is leading them to the slaughter - What will they do?

America. Winter. From the Four Seasons series.
Adoption by the NATO Assembly of a resolution recognizing Russia as a "sponsor of terrorism" would allow the US to throw some of its NATO obligations onto the shoulders of Europeans.

While everybody laughed at the marasmus of sleepy Grandpa Biden, America under his "restless leadership" was able to take advantage of the Ukrainian crisis and achieved stunning results in nine months of the SMO. The Biden administration managed to accomplish what Donald Trump had previously unsuccessfully pursued. Namely:
  • Increasing European NATO allies' defense spending up to 2 percent, as required by the alliance's charter;
  • Strengthening the national economy, including through the repatriation of industrial production;
  • Revitalizing the US oil and gas industry.
It is unfair, Trump cried out loudly, that the US bears the lion's share of the security costs within NATO, while the Europeans cut costs to protect themselves by spending on other urgent needs. For example, supporting a faltering economy amid anti-covid measures.

Raise defense spending by at least 0.5%, the US leader said, addressing Germany in the first place. But the practical Germans and the stingy French did not agree to spend money on anything, making promises that meant nothing. Moreover, there was no good reason to increase expenditures. It is worth recalling that military spending is not only the budget expenditures, but also the profits of the military-industrial sector. Obviously, by demanding that his allies increase military spending, Trump hoped to channel these funds into the US military-industrial complex, which, like the oil industry, is controlled by the Republicans. So the benefit to the US and Trump personally was twofold: political and economical.

And then came Russia's special operation in Ukraine. In nine months, the Russian army, according to reports from the Russian Defense Ministry, had grinded a huge amount of Soviet-era military equipment used by the Ukrainian army. From tanks and aircraft to hand grenade launchers and anti-tank missiles. The United States quickly realized that it could make a good and fast profit on this. They began sending to the Ukrainian army all the Soviet weapons available in the countries of the former Warsaw Pact.

Days of future past? Potential line of armistice in a Ukraine settlement
For the buffer zone to achieve the demilitarization of the Ukraine, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov warned in July that military factors, not politics, will decide. "I see no reason to question what President Vladimir Putin announced on February 24, 2022, and reaffirmed a few days ago," Lavrov said. "Our goals remain the same. And they will be met. There is a solution to this problem. The military know this."

In case the distinction Lavrov was making between political negotiations and military operations, between soldiers and civilians, wasn't clear enough, Maria Zakharova, the Foreign Ministry spokesman, made it the target of her irony last Thursday. In her regular briefing for reporters, Zakharova was asked to comment on US weapons supplies to the Ukraine. "Something is wrong with this world if two women are discussing Stingers, MANPADS, SAMS, and HARM anti-radar missiles," she answered the journalist.
"As a reminder, scaling up its military supplies to Kiev and directly controlling Ukrainian forces, including the provision of real-time recon data, Washington has, in fact, become a party to the conflict in Ukraine...As far as their internal dealings regarding how much money they give to whom, what particular supplies are underway, or what items they are running out of or have more of, this is not our concern. Let them decide what kind of games they want to play among themselves."
