An investigation is to be carried out into the number of newborn baby deaths in Scotland.

The Scottish government has ordered the review of neonatal death rates after two spikes over a six-month period. Both increases were larger than what would normally be expected.

At least 18 babies under four weeks old died in March. That came after at least 21 babies died in September last year.


Comment: Note that this follows the roll out of the experimental covid vaccines.


The review will be carried out by Healthcare Improvement Scotland.

It is expected to last six to nine months and cover all reported baby deaths between April 2021 and March 2022.

Comment: More data is needed but it's possible that these spikes are linked to the roll out of the experimental Covid jabs; more so now that a recent study proved that the breastmilk of those who took the jabs is contaminated with the mRNA concoction. And it wouldn't be the first spate of child deaths associated with the injections, both directly and indirectly:

Schools in Czech Republic ordered to turn down heating due to fuel shortages, footage shows students using blankets to stay warm

Czech Republic
The current energy crisis brought on by the war between Russia and Ukraine forced the Czech Ministry of Health to draft an amendment that calls for lower temperature as well as fewer ventilation requirements in gyms and classrooms.

The justification for the adjustment also drafts a decree on hygienic standards for school premises, according to Ceskenoviny news website.

The Ministry of Health proposes to reduce the temperature outside the classrooms in schools and to ventilate less, reducing minimum heating temperature in school premises outside classrooms. For example, it could be 17 degrees Celsius in the gymnasiums or in the corridors instead of the current 18 and in the showers 21 instead of 24. In the classrooms it should remain at 20 degrees Celsius.


Comment: It wasn't so long ago that manic ideologues were encouraging people to take cold showers so they could victoriously scream 'take that Putin' at the sky, however, now, even before winter has begun to bite, European countries are struggling to maintain a semblance of normalcy over even simple issues. In their attempts to destroy Russia, Europe and the US are ruining themselves.

Rescue
President Joe Biden on Friday personally called to thank a Coast Guard rescue swimmer — who is facing discharge over Biden's vaccine mandate — for saving people's lives during Hurricane Ian.

The White House publicized the call in a press release and Biden himself bragged about calling him. Biden said of his call to Aviation Survival Technician Second Class Zach Loesch:
"I told him how proud of him I was and thanked him for all the work he and his Coasties are doing to save lives."
The White House press release said:
"The president thanked Loesch and Lieutenant Commander Christopher Hooper for the heroic work that they and their Coast Guard colleagues have performed during search and rescue operations in response to Hurricane Ian.

"The President thanked them for saving lives and asked for a report on the work that continues to rescue Floridians. He also asked if they needed any additional support that he can provide to accelerate successful rescues; they indicated they have gotten what they need to execute their vital mission."
Despite Biden thanking Loesch for saving people's lives, Loesch is due to be kicked out from the Coast Guard in 30-60 days due to Biden's own mandate that all members of the United States Armed Forces be fully vaccinated, Loesch told Breitbart News on Saturday.

Comment: In other words, Biden's heap of praise was a media op.

California Governor Gavin Newsom • California farm workers
A bill to prohibit foreign governments from purchasing or leasing agricultural land in California was vetoed by Governor Gavin Newsom Tuesday.

Senate Bill 1084, authored by Senator Melissa Hurtado (D-Sanger), would have prohibited a foreign government from purchasing, acquiring, leasing, or holding an interest in agricultural land within California. The bill would also exempt land held by foreign governments before January 1, 2023, from that prohibition, and would have specified that it does not apply to federally recognized Indian tribes or their government units and enterprises. In addition, SB 1084 would have created yearly reports by the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) to list how much agricultural land is still owned by foreign governments and what recommendations are.

Senator Hurtado authored the bill, also known as the The Food and Farm Security Act, due to concerns over a growing food crisis, helping secure farm land for future food supplies for California and the US, ending drought profiteering, defending the food supply chain, and protecting limited water resources for agricultural use.

Comment: Newsom's allegiance lies elsewhere. Famine is on the agenda.

EXCLUSIVE: 'A Nexus To Terrorism': Illegals flagged as potential national security risks soared nearly 600% in last year

The Border 'Line'
A "special interest" migrant is someone who isn't a U.S. citizen who frequently travels in areas designated as national security concerns due to terrorist activity or other types of "nefarious activity," according to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Border Patrol agents encountered 25,627 "special interest" illegal migrants compared to the 3,675 encounters in fiscal year 2021, according to the data.

"Special interest aliens" can include individuals who "possibly have a nexus to terrorism," according to 2019 DHS fact sheet. The newly-obtained internal data refers to these individuals as "special interest migrants," however.

Most of the encounters were recorded at the southern border, with the highest in El Paso, Texas, according to the data. Former Border Patrol Chief Rodney Scott told the Daily Caller News Foundation:
"When you have an open border, you don't get to control who or what enters your home. There are significant real threats coming across the border. Unfortunately, all the current administration wants to focus on as an economic migrants and trying to say that they have a kinder, gentler migration policy, but they're putting the entire Nation at Risk, as well as the millions of migrants that are handed to the cartels to be trafficked across the border."
CBP officials encountered over 2,000,000 migrants at the southern border between October 2021 and August 2022, a record number. Of those, CBP encountered 78 individuals on the terror watchlist.

Comment: The worst of terrorists are found on Capitol Hill. Ongoing damage is immeasurable.

RT wins court case against Google, must restore YouTube channels blocked in Russia

Moscow's arbitration court has ordered the US tech giant to restore access to blocked YouTube channels

Google has been ordered by Moscow's arbitration court to restore RT's YouTube channels, which were blocked by the tech giant following the launch of Russia's military operation in Ukraine.

The decision was announced on Tuesday as the court found in favor of ANO TV-Novosti, RT's founding company, against Google LLC, Google Ireland Limited and the Russian Google division. They have been ordered to restore access to some 27 blocked channels.

If they fail to do so, a court penalty of 100,000 rubles per day ($1,694) will be imposed on Google until access to all of the channels is restored. Every week, the amount of the daily penalty will double.

Google now has 30 days to appeal the court's verdict.

No uncomfortable truths allowed: Bloomberg tries to drown out economist's Nord Stream theory

Bloomberg host Tom Keene cut off Columbia University professor Jeffrey Sachs when to talk turned to the Nord Stream 2 sabotage
Hosts scrambled to contradict Jeffrey Sachs as he laid blame for the pipeline explosions

Economist Jeffrey Sachs speculated on Monday that the sabotage of the Nord Stream pipelines was the work of the US and maybe Poland, to the chagrin of Bloomberg TV hosts who quickly tried to change the subject. Now a professor at Columbia University, Sachs became notorious in Russia for masterminding the "shock therapy" reforms in the 1990s - but has been sharply critical of the West's approach to the conflict in Ukraine in recent months.

Invited to Bloomberg's Surveillance show on Monday, Sachs was asked to comment on Russia he "knew so well" under President Boris Yeltsin. Instead, the hosts scrambled to cut him off after he said the conflict is "on the path of escalation to nuclear war" and did not start in February 2022.

POLLING: Americans give no-confidence vote to rigged two-party system

kress building
The 2022 Congressional midterms are around the corner. Based on historical precedent and the state of the union, they should be a slam-dunk for the GOP.

Runaway inflation, brazen warmongering, ongoing COVID hysteria, record-setting crime spikes, and unchecked illegal immigration of the past two years has all been overseen and endorsed by the Democrats who control Congress and the presidency. In a functional two-party system, this would and should guarantee a landslide loss come the 2022 midterms.

But we will likely see no such thing, on account of the undeniable reality that the GOP sucks almost as much as the Democrats because they largely serve the same donor class.
