Secretary of State Antony Blinken
Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX), the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, was finally able to see a long sought-after 2021 cable from diplomats warning the Biden administration about the situation of Afghanistan that was ignored, according to Just the News. The chairman and the committee's highest-ranking Democrat Representative Greg Meeks (D-NY) managed to obtain a reading of the cable after much evasion by the Department of State. The Texan chairman had to warn the Secretary of State Anthony Blinken that he risked being found in contempt of Congress after ignoring a subpoena for the document.

Representative McCaul proclaimed:
"The dissenters [in the cable] were absolutely right about everything they said...And it was a warning to the administration about what was going to happen and what they needed to do. [The dissenters] deserve a medal...Unfortunately, the administration didn't heed all their warnings and we got what we got."

Feds hid JFK film that could prove 'Grassy Knoll' conspiracy: Lawsuit

Home movie screen shot of JFK murder
A 60-year-old home movie could finally reveal whether multiple shooters, and not a lone gunman, assassinated President John F. Kennedy - but the federal government has been hiding it for decades, according to an explosive new lawsuit.

The heirs of Orville Nix, a Dallas maintenance man who recorded the moment of Kennedy's death with his home-movie camera, have tried for years to get his original film back from the government's clutches.

"It would be very significant if the original Nix film surfaced today," said Jefferson Morley, author of The Ghost and other books about the CIA.

With recent advances in digital image processing, the original film "would essentially be a new piece of evidence," Morley explained. "There's a significant loss in quality between the first and second generation" of an analog film like Nix's.

Nix's clip, unlike the better known film shot by Abraham Zapruder, was taken from the center of Dealey Plaza as the presidential limousine drove into an ambush on Elm Street in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963.

Comment: Commenters on this clip claim it has been edited...still worth the watch from a different focal view.


Ex-Trump lawyer files $67 million lawsuit against former Jan. 6 House Select Committee

Former Vice Chair of House January 6Th Committee, Liz Cheney
Stefan Passantino, a lawyer from Washington, D.C., who provided representation for ex-White House staffer Cassidy Hutchinson during her testimony before the Jan. 6 House Select Committee, has filed a lawsuit against the committee, accusing it of damaging his professional reputation and causing harm to his career.

Passantino submitted a Federal Tort Claims Act Complaint amounting to $67 million against the congressional panel, alleging that the committee deliberately created and propagated a false narrative about him, intentionally interfered with his attorney-client relationship, and neglected his civil rights to advance a political agenda targeting former President Donald Trump.

Passantino's attorney, Jesse Binnall, said in a statement:
"Liz Cheney and her collaborators on the January 6th Committee decided to peddle a false tale about Mr. Passantino and his relationship with his client without any regard for the truth or whether they were destroying the reputation of a good man; a reputation built over decades."
Per the complaint, the committee is accused of engaging in unauthorized communications with Hutchinson, without the knowledge or consent of Passantino, thus violating the sanctity of the attorney-client relationship. The complaint further alleges that these communications contributed to the creation of a "false narrative" that was then propagated to news outlets by a lawmaker or congressional staff member acting "outside of the scope of their legislative function."


Iran exchanges heavy gunfire with Taliban on Afghan border, escalating tensions over water rights

Border war between Iran and Afghanistan
The Taliban and Iran exchanged heavy gunfire Saturday on the Islamic Republic's border with Afghanistan, killing and wounding troops while sharply escalating rising tensions between the two countries amid a dispute over water rights.

Iran's state-run IRNA news agency quoted the country's deputy police chief, Gen. Qassem Rezaei, accusing the Taliban of opening fire first Saturday morning on the border of Iran's Sistan and Baluchestan province and the Afghan province of Nimroz. IRNA said Iran inflicted "heavy casualties and serious damage."

From the Taliban's view: Afghan Interior Ministry spokesman Abdul Nafi Takor accused Iran of shooting first. Takor said the firefight killed two people, one from each country, and wounded others. He described the situation as now being under control.

IRNA, quoting Iranian police, said two border guards had been killed. However, that number may be higher. The semiofficial, English-language newspaper Tehran Times said the fighting killed three Iranian border guards. IRNA said the Milak border crossing with Afghanistan, a major trade route, was closed until further notice over the gunfight.

Afghan Defense Ministry spokesman Enayatullah Khawarazmi said in a statement:
"The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan considers dialogue to be a reasonable way for any problem. Making excuses for war and negative actions is not in the interest of any of the parties."

The first thing every revolutionary regime does when it comes to power: Posobiec docs prove the government is using Antifa to purge the military

A recent revelation has exposed a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) anti-terrorism program that has been misused to target conservatives. Through 80 grants and $39.6 million of taxpayers' money, the Biden administration, along with Secretary Mayorkas, is delegating their efforts to wrongly associate conservatives with terrorists.

The program is structured like a pyramid and aims to trace the path of a "right-winger" turning into a self-proclaimed radicalized domestic terrorist. It begins with influences like Fox News and the Christian Broadcasting Network.

The University of Dayton — one of the most radicalized groups around — has received a substantial grant of $352k to hunt down Fox News and CBN viewers. They were awarded this taxpayer-funded grant from Biden's DHS even after submitting that absurd and fraudulent pyramid scheme graphic that attacks half of America for no reason whatsoever.



Memorial Service

"Liberalism was never about freedom, but nurtured a profound desire to change humanity above all other aspects. This rendered it a willing ally of tyrants promising to do the dirty work of such a project." — John Waters on Substack
Ruled by Psychos

An anxious silence falls over the land this Memorial Day as we discern increasingly that those we put in charge of this shape-shifting thing called the public interest are running out of trips to lay on the people. Something grotesque is revealing itself: a bankruptcy not just of money but of national purpose, meaning, and legitimacy. You realize this day, with a breaking heart, that your country has been stolen by psychopaths.

Brace for impact. We're already off the road and now it's only a matter of how this vehicle comes to a stop in the ditch. Then, it's a question of how each of us emerges from the smoldering wreckage. The main thing, though, is clear to everyone: What we were riding in is no more. We're out there stumbling around in the dark, in shock, trying desperately to assess our whereabouts and what has happened to us.

Now, the trouble with being ruled by psychopaths is that they don't care about other people. They are actually incapable of imagining the lives of others, especially the fact that these others care about each other, and what happens to them. You may have noticed, for instance, that the psychopath Senator Lindsay Graham (R-SC) went to Ukraine last week and declared, "Russians are dying. We have never spent money so well." Only a couple of months ago, he called for the assassination of Vladimir Putin. He stopped short of dissing Mr. Putin's mother.

Lindsey Graham in Kiev: 'Killing Russians is the best money we've ever spent'

lindsey graham kyiv
Lindsey Graham speaks during a press conference at an open air exhibition of destroyed Russian military vehicles in Kyiv, on May 26, 2023. The senator described U.S. military aid to Ukraine as the "best money we've ever spent" during a meeting with Zelensky.
Footage has emerged of Lindsey Graham describing U.S. military support to Ukraine as the "best money we've ever spent," after noting that "Russians are dying" during a meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The comments were made on Friday during a visit to Kyiv by the South Carolina senator to express solidarity with Ukraine amidst the ongoing Russian invasion.

The two quotes appear in the video to follow one another. Newsweek has contacted Graham by telephone and voicemail message, asking if anything was cut between the two clips, and whether he stands by the remarks. The Russian Foreign Ministry has also been approached by email.

Comment: On the basis of these comments, the Russian government has issued an international arrest warrant for Graham. His office is working overtime today to 'clarify' his comments, essentially throwing the Kiev regime under the bus by claiming that his words were edited 'out of context'. The effeminate warhawk US senator then took to Twitter to throw 'big words' at the Russian government, but he's clearly been spooked. Was that the last time he ever goes near Russia's borders?!


China enters waters off of Vietnam near Russian gas block in 'worrying escalation'

A ship from the Vietnam Marine Guard, right, is seen near a ship from the Chinese Coast Guard in the South China Sea about 210 km (130 miles) offshore of Vietnam May 14, 2014.
China claims it has not violated any exclusive economic zone and operated in its 'jurisdiction'.

China on Friday once again disregarded Vietnam's exclusive economic zone (EEZ) and deployed a research ship along with five escort vessels to an area where a Russian state firm jointly operates a gas block with Hanoi in the energy rich South China Sea.

The move is Beijing's latest escalatory step in the region after it first sent in the research vessel earlier this month along with at least one Chinese coast guard ship and nearly a dozen other vessels, Reuters reported.

NewsReal: Ukraine Warlord Lindsey Graham: 'Best Money US Ever Spent'

With British and American cruise missiles, shells, and drones currently hitting Russian residential areas on a daily basis, US Senator Lindsey Graham visited Kiev to reassure Zelensky that "the Ukraine war was the best money the US ever spent because we get to kill Russians!" Is this the 'Ukrainian counter-offensive' they're all talking about: outright terrorism against the civilian Russian population?

Completely ignoring last week's victory of Russian forces over NATO in Bakhmut, Western media is instead showcasing British 'counter-insurgency specialists' training die-hard Ukrainians in the fine art of blowing people up, and sending armored columns of Humvees into Russian villages to 'liberate' them using 'separatists' with known links to neo-Nazi organizations.

The 'Great Game' of Washington-London unipolarity vs Moscow-Beijing multipolarity just gets nastier and nastier...
