Haley is releasing the delegates she won during this year's Republican primary so that they're free to support Donald Trump at next week's convention. Haley on Tuesday, July 9, opted to release her 97 delegates won across a dozen primaries and caucuses earlier this year.
Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley on Tuesday released all of her 97 delegates to the Republican National Convention and encouraged them to nominate former President Donald Trump and the convention next week in Milwaukee.

"The nominating convention is a time for Republican unity. Joe Biden is not competent to serve a second term and Kamala Harris would be a disaster for America," Ms. Haley said in a statement.

"We need a president who will hold our enemies to account, secure our border, cut our debt, and get our economy back on track. I encourage my delegates to support Donald Trump next week in Milwaukee."

Comment: Besides conceding the inevitable, Haley is surely bucking for a position in the next Trump administration, should it come to pass. Considering her previous performance, one hopes Trump won't be swayed by his feelings of loyalty to those who support him. She was a disaster.

Karine Jean-Pierre admits giving false information about Biden neurology visit after outcry over health misdirection

President Biden was seen by neurologist Kevin Cannard, who specializes in Parkinson's disease, at the White House on Jan. 17, press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre admitted late Tuesday — hours after telling reporters the opposite at her regular briefing.

The clarification came just a day after Jean-Pierre scolded a journalist who pressed her for details on Cannard's visit and pointed out she gave misleading information about whether Biden, 81, was medically evaluated after his catastrophic June 27 debate performance.

"Because the date was not mentioned in the question, I want to be clear that the Jan. 17 meeting between [presidential physician] Dr. [Kevin] O'Connor and Dr. Cannard was for the president's physical," Jean-Pierre told the Associated Press, whose reporter had asked Jean-Pierre about Cannard's meeting with O'Connor, which was first reported by The Post this past Saturday.

"It was one of the three times the president has seen Dr. Cannard, each time for his physical. The findings from each exam have been released to the public," Jean-Pierre said amid Democratic calls for Biden to end his campaign for a second term.

How IMF bankers have Kenya held hostage

In Kenya, ongoing protests against tax hikes have put the spotlight on the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and its controversial role in the country's debt crisis. Demonstrators accuse the IMF of imposing harsh loan conditions that hurt the poor, while the government struggles with a massive debt inherited from previous administrations. As Kenya's President Ruto rolls back tax proposals amidst violent clashes, the IMF faces criticism for its influence on Kenya's economic policies, leaving many to question: is the IMF holding Kenya hostage?

Even though the protests have been ongoing for weeks, committed Kenyans continue to demonstrate against the administration.

However, when demonstrators first took to the streets in June to protest proposed tax hikes, President William Ruto and members of parliament were not the only ones targeted as reported by Al Jazeera.

Placards accusing the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank of causing the crisis were raised during the protests, which later turned fatal. "IMF, World Bank, End Modern-Day Slavery," one poster read.

Comment: It seems that Kenya needs to get with the times and join the rest of Africa in kicking out the West and its tools of subversion:

Rare China-Belarus military drills near borders of Poland, Ukraine, cite NATO build up and 'anti-terrorism'

China and Belarus kicked off ultra-rare joint military drills near the Polish border inside Belarusian territory on Monday. It is unprecedented given Chinese troops are now deployed so close to a raging war zone in Eastern Europe.

The Belarusian armed forces pointed specifically to "Ukrainian provocation" as a key reason to hold the drills. Vladimir Kupriyanyuk, the deputy head of the general staff of the military, said the exercises are a response to the "West's aggressive foreign policy towards Belarus" and to "Ukrainian provocation."

Alarmingly, the maneuvers dubbed 'Eagle Assault' are not just a single day or two-day drill, but are slated to last eleven days, until July 19. The drills are being staged near the city of Brest on the Belarus-Poland border, and which is some 40 miles from the Belarusian border with Ukraine to the south.

Comment: Considering the West's escalation of both its over and covert attacks against Russia and the multipolar allies, and with its defeat in Ukraine, and more generally on the geopolitical stage, all but inevitable, it seems reasonable to expect that it will feel compelled to launch even more egregious attacks in the very near future:

Israel to begin drafting ultra-Orthodox Jews

Orthodox Jews
Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant has approved a plan to begin drafting ultra-Orthodox Jews into the armed forces starting next month, the Defense Ministry has said, as cited by local media. Until now, members of the religious community have been exempted from IDF service.

The announcement comes two weeks after a landmark decision by the country's top court on June 25 that there is no legal basis for not conscripting ultra-Orthodox Jews, who have largely not been drafted since the foundation of Israel in 1948.

The authorization reportedly followed an assessment meeting on Tuesday with the military's chief of staff, Herzi Halevi, and other officials. Following discussions, Gallant approved the process of issuing draft notices to ultra-Orthodox Jews over the coming month, reports say.

The step is being implemented "in accordance with the [IDF's] absorption and screening capabilities, and after a significant process of refining the existing data regarding potential recruits," according to the statement, as quoted by the media.

Comment: The genocide has so far claimed close to 200.000 palestinians according to a recent report by Lancet. The Lancet study estimates death toll in Gaza 186,000 or even more

The US-led bloc will provide four new Patriot systems and "dozens" of other interceptors

NATO countries have promised to provide Ukraine with five additional strategic air defense systems, in response to Kiev's pleas to help fend off Russian airstrikes. US President Joe Biden announced the "historic donation" during a summit in Washington, where NATO leaders gathered on Tuesday to mark the 75th anniversary of the bloc.

The US, Germany, and Romania will donate a new Patriot battery each, while the Netherlands "and other partners" will supply components to "enable the operation of an additional Patriot battery," according to a statement signed by several NATO members and Ukraine. Italy has pledged to deliver a new SAMP-T system.

Comment:
"Today NATO is stronger than it's ever been in its history," - Biden
Compared to non-NATO countries, many NATO countries are weaker and in its eagerness to expand it has managed to destabilize Europe to an unprecedented degree since WWII. If one takes another perspective, then NATO and the US has European countries and the EU under the foot. At the same time, there is the conflict in Gaza and just as the downing of MH17 over Eastern Ukraine on 17 July 2014 at the time served as a distraction from the mayhem Israel was working there, the conflict in Ukraine probably has to be kept going for the very same purpose, without negating that NATO and the forces behind it have interests in dismembering and subjugating Russia to exploit its resources, both human and material, and prevent the rise of a multipolar world.

Kremlin reveals position on NATO summit
The US-led bloc is hostile to Russia and is fueling the Ukraine conflict, so its decisions matter, Dmitry Peskov has said

The Russian government will pay "maximum attention" to whatever decisions are announced at a NATO summit hosted by the US this week, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov has said.

Leaders of the military bloc are convening on Tuesday in Washington for three days of meetings. The organization's 32 member states are reportedly expected to endorse a Germany-based long-term mission for supplying weapons to Ukraine.

Peskov reminded journalists on Tuesday that NATO "considers Russia an enemy, a rival" and "has repeatedly openly declared an intention to inflict strategic defeat on Russia on the battlefield." It "is directly involved in the Ukrainian conflict on the side of Ukraine," he added.

"So we certainly will pay close attention to the rhetoric that will be coming out, the talks and the decisions that will be put on paper," the Russian official added.

The US and its allies have accused Russia of launching an "unprovoked" attack on Ukraine in February 2022 and have vowed to stand with Kiev for "as long as it takes" to prevail. Moscow considers the conflict to be part of a wider US-led proxy war against Russia.

Ukraine wants to be a NATO member and maintains that its fight with Russia gives it the right to be fast-tracked to accession. But member states and NATO's leadership have said the country will not join the organization while hostilities continue.

Jens Stoltenberg, the outgoing NATO secretary-general, said last week that Ukraine may not be ready to join even in 2034. Nevertheless, continuing to support Kiev with weapons is "a precondition for any future membership" he told CBS News.

According to media previews of the Washington summit, Ukraine will be offered a vaguely-defined "bridge" to membership, but no definite timetable for crossing it.

The proposed German military assistance mission is supposed to "institutionalize" long-term weapons supplies to Ukraine, reports say. Putting NATO in charge would put it out of the hands of former US President Donald Trump, should he win the presidential election in November. The presumed Republican nominee has stated on the campaign trail that his country is spending too much money on Kiev, compared to European NATO members.

Earlier this year, the GOP held up in Congress for months a request by President Joe Biden to allocate an additional $60 billion in Ukraine spending. Republican lawmakers claimed that domestic policy priorities, such as security at the southern border, needed to be addressed first.

In the UK, pandemic response was biodefense, NOT public health.

Lockdown-until-vaccine is not a public health response, it is a response to a bioterror attack, benefiting the biodefense-industrial-complex.

In previous articles, I analyzed government documents showing that the Covid pandemic response in the U.S. was not designed or led by the public health agencies. Rather, it was a biodefense response, led by the National Security Counciland FEMA/Department of Homeland Security.

In addition to military/intelligence agencies, the biodefense cartel that ran the Covid response encompassed global pharmaceutical companies enmeshed in public-private partnerships with governments to create and disseminate "countermeasures," and global NGOs - most notably, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Wellcome Trust - who invest in and benefit from all the activities related to pandemic preparedness, first and foremost: vaccines.

The same thing happened in many countries:
  • Between January and mid-March 2020, the public health agencies were handling the coronavirus outbreak as they would any other. They monitored for local outbreaks where people were getting sick with symptoms, told people not to panic, and gave scientifically and epidemiologically sound advice: no masks necessary; wash your hands and stay home if you're sick.
  • In mid-March there was a complete reversal on everything: suddenly both the political and the public health officials were saying millions would die if we did not shut everything down and wait for vaccines.
In this article I will discuss how this pattern was repeated in the British Covid pandemic response: the national public health agency was replaced at the helm of the response by military/intelligence entities, and the response switched from public health to lockdown-until vaccine - specifically, as a top UK minister testified - the mRNA vaccine.

PM Modi received the award for "his distinguished contribution to the development of a privileged strategic partnership between Russia and India and friendly ties between the two countries".

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday (Jul 9) was presented with the 'Order of St Andrew the Apostle' by Russian leader Vladimir Putin. The highest order of chivalry in Russia was bestowed on him in the year 2019 at St Catherine's Hall of the Moscow Kremlin.


Comment: Notably this occurs after the bombing in Ukraine, in which the West and the Kiev-junta accuse Russia of targeting a children's hospital, that just so happened to occur prior to a NATO meeting; evidently PM Modi saw no reason to defer the ceremony.

New right-wing group in European Parliament to be third largest - Politico

An alliance of conservative anti-immigration parties in the European parliament, launched last month by Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, is set to become the third largest in the chamber, according to Politico.

The Patriots for Europe will be officially established on Monday, and is expected to confirm that 30 MEPs from the French right-wing party National Rally (RN) will be in the group, the outlet said in the morning, citing insider sources.

In the previous EU legislature, the RN - which was previously led by Marine Le Pen - belonged to the Identity and Democracy (ID) group. A source told Politico that she insisted on postponing the announcement until after the second round of the parliamentary election in France.

The ballot took place on Sunday and ended in disappointment for RN. Centrist and left-wing politicians coordinated to deny the right a majority, pushing it into third place.

The New York Times has revealed multiple atrocities allegedly committed by international fighters against Russian POWs.

Russia's Investigative Committee has said it will probe war crimes allegedly committed by a mercenary unit fighting for Ukraine. The statement comes after the New York Times (NYT) claimed the so-called Chosen Company, led by a former US Army National Guard soldier, has committed multiple war crimes and executed Russian prisoners of war.

In one reported incident described by the NYT on Saturday, members of the so-called Chosen Company murdered a seriously injured Russian serviceman who was allegedly surrendering and pleading for help.

The agency stated on their Telegram channel:
"Investigators of the Russian Investigative Committee will look into more crimes by Ukraine's armed formations. Information is being circulated in the media about a crime committed against a wounded Russian prisoner of war who was killed with a shot to the head."
