Okay, so who has "bubonic plague" on their 2024 disaster bingo card?

plague mask
This has been quite a decade for global pestilences. The first one to hit was COVID, and that created a wave of panic that literally paralyzed the entire globe. The next one to hit was the bird flu. More than 100 million birds are dead, and now mammals all over the planet are getting infected. There is a lot of concern that humans could be next, and we will be watching future developments very closely. Two years ago, Mpox exploded on to the scene, and it rapidly circulated around the world. Now a much deadlier new version has emerged in Africa, and global health authorities are quite alarmed about this. On top of everything else, this year we are dealing with the worst outbreak of dengue fever that we have ever witnessed. Millions have already been infected, and there have even been hundreds of cases here in the United States.


Farage afraid of being 'branded an antisemite' over Israel, claims candidate

© politician Nigel Farage/Gaza
On Wednesday 26 June, Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC) published the first set of responses from political candidates to its "Vote Palestine 2024" initiative for the UK general election. So far, the results have thrown up some interesting results - including, apparently, Nigel Farage being afraid of being "branded an antisemite" if he condemns Israel.

PSC: 'Vote Palestine' on 4 July

PSC drafted six questions for all parliamentary candidates that constituents can send electronically to their local prospective candidates, as a set of concrete actions to commit to if elected.

They cover an immediate ceasefire, restoration of funding to UNRWA, an arms embargo, support for the ICJ and ICC to uphold international humanitarian law, suspending trade agreements with Israel, and protecting the right to protest, boycott, and divest from companies that are complicit in violations of international law.

Thousands of people have written to their local candidates to demand responses to these points and hundreds of them have responded. Their answers are published on the PSC website and are searchable by postcode. You can search here.

Comment: One peoples' tragedy is another's election platform.


Dangerous skin diseases spreading among children in Gaza

Wafaa Elwan's five-year-old son cannot sleep in the Gaza tent city where she and her seven children shelter, but it is not the guns of war that cause his nightmares. "My son can't sleep through the night because he can't stop scratching his body," the anxious mother said.

The boy has white and red blotches over his feet and legs, and more under his shirt. He is one of many in Gaza suffering from skin infections, ranging from scabies to chicken pox, lice, impetigo and other debilitating rashes.

More than 150,000 people in the Palestinian territory have contracted skin diseases in the squalid conditions into which displaced people in the enclave have been forced since the start of Israel's war on Gaza, according to the World Health Organization.

Elwan's family is one of thousands living on a sandy patch near the sea close to the central Gaza city of Deir el-Balah. Elwan believes infections are inevitable:
"We sleep on the ground, on sand where worms come out underneath us. We cannot bathe our children as before. There are no hygiene and sanitary products for us to wash and clean the place. There's nothing. The sea is all sewage. They even throw garbage and baby napkins into the sea."
Parents used to tell their children to wash in the Mediterranean. But pollution that has built up as war has devastated basic facilities has accentuated the risk of disease.

The WHO has reported 96,417 cases of scabies and lice since the start of the war, 9,274 cases of chickenpox, 60,130 cases of skin rashes and 10,038 impetigo cases.

Comment: Suffering in Gaza has worsened in ways unimaginable, especially for children.


Spire of famous Rouen cathedral in France catches fire, cause as yet unknown

Rouen Cathedral

The spire of France's famous Rouen Cathedral in Normandy is on fire.

Images posted on social media showed flames spewing from a scaffolding canopy near the top of the building - which is renowned due to its three towers spanning hundreds of years of architecture.

The gothic cathedral is widely known as it was painted multiple times by French impressionist painter Claude Monet in the 19th century.

"A fire has started on the spire of Rouen Cathedral. Origin unknown at this stage. All public resources are mobilised," wrote the city's mayor Nicolas Mayer-Rossignol on X.

Comment: There's a rather suspect pattern that has emerged from a number of these fires at historic, and religious, landmarks. And it leads one to suspect that at least some of these aren't merely incompetence, or accident.

The following article, reporting on the fire at Copenhagen's historic stock exchange in April 2024, seems to highlight the similarities:
The old stock exchange was being renovated and had been shrouded in scaffolding and protective plastic covering. It currently houses the Danish chamber of commerce, which described the scenes on Tuesday morning as a terrible sight.

Local craftsman Henrik Grage told Danish TV that it was a tragic day. "This is our Notre-Dame," he said, comparing it with the fire that engulfed the roof and spire of the cathedral in the centre of Paris almost exactly five years ago.

The Paris fire broke out under the eaves of Notre-Dame on 15 April 2019 when it was also shrouded in scaffolding as part of extensive renovations. Investigators have blamed either a short circuit in the electrics or a worker's cigarette butt that was not properly put out.
It may be that these renovations provide some plausible deniability as to the real cause of some of these fires.

It has also been the case with a significant number of the terror attacks, as well as the seemingly random attacks, that appear to have surged across Europe in recent years, that the perpetrators were 'known to the authorities':

UK: Will Labour shield gender-confused kids from the trans ideologues? The signs aren't looking good

When the final report of the Cass Review was published on April 10th 2024, many of us hoped this would be a turning point. After the scandal that led to the closure of the Tavistock GIDS clinic, at last it seemed that children and young people with gender-related distress would finally receive the high quality, evidence-based care they need and deserve.

At the time her report was published, Dr. Hilary Cass noted that "some professional organisations have ducked their responsibility in ensuring that everyone working in this field treated these young people as they would any other". She called on these organisations to "come together to provide leadership and guidance" to ensure that the report's recommendations could be implemented.

It is three months on from the review's publication. How have the professional therapeutic organisations responded? Are they providing the required leadership and guidance?

An Italian court of appeal has upheld the murder convictions of two American men over the death of an Italian plainclothes police officer during a botched sting operation but reduced their sentences. The new trial was ordered after Italy's highest court threw out their original convictions.

The court convicted Finnegan Lee Elder and sentenced him to 15 years and two months in prison and gave a sentence of 11 years to Gabriele Natale-Hjorth.

They were found guilty over the death of the carabinieri vice-brigadier Mario Cerciello Rega in July 2019. Prosecutors had asked that Finnegan be sentenced to 23 years and nine months and 23 years for Natale-Hjorth.

The former school friends from the San Francisco Bay area, who were teenagers at the time of the killing, had met in Rome to spend a few days on holiday together.

Big Lots to close up to 40 stores, and its survival is in doubt

Big Lots plans to shutter three times more stores than it will open in 2024, with the discount retailer pointing to a retreat in spending by its bargain-hunting base.

"We currently expect to open three stores and close 35 to 40," the Columbus, Ohio-based retailer stated in a regulatory filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The company also said it expects further operating losses and cited "substantial doubt" about its ability to continue as a going concern.

The retailer's distress call came amid other indications that inflation-weary Americans are tightening their belts and spending less, with U.S. economic growth slowing in the first three months of 2024.


Texans outraged after Whataburger availability app works better than Centerpoint Energy's to pinpoint power outages

whattaburger app power outtages map
With over 900 restaurants across the country, 769 of them in Texas, a viral tweet revealed they could use the app to track the hurricane’s damage.
Texans took to social media to express their anger at CenterPoint Energy after resorting to Whataburger's app to locations on Tuesday after CenterPoint Energy's power outage map remained offline.

As of Tuesday afternoon, 2.2 million Texans were without power following Hurricane Beryl's destructive path through the Lonestar State after the Category 1 storm made landfall on Monday morning. Of those without power, 1.7 million were CenterPoint Energy customers. With so many people affected, residents are bound to be curious about where in the state power is out and when it is expected to come back on, but CenterPoint Energy's online power outage tracker is offline. Instead, Texans are using the Whataburger app to track power outages.

Social media user @BBQBryan pointed out the tactic on X, formerly Twitter, late Monday night. The post has been viewed more than 3 million times since it was made.


French 'Excalibur' sword vanishes after 1,300 years as the sword in the stone — literally

An ancient sword known as the French version of King Arthur's legendary "Excalibur" has mysteriously vanished from the town where, according to local lore, it had remained lodged in a rock for 1,300 years.

The Durandal sword appears to have been taken by a thief from its stone in the tiny medieval town of Rocamadour, where it was one of the town's main attractions, The Telegraph reported.

For centuries it's been believed the sword once belonged to Roland, a semi-legendary knight who bravely fought for Charlemagne in the eighth century.

Officials in Rocamadour have launched an investigation into the disappearance of the sword, which was yanked from its spot in a cliff wall some 100 feet off the ground.


How to protect your food and medical freedoms

father and son
In my previous articles, we looked at the global war on farmers, the organizations pushing for the Great Food Reset, the tactics used to foist these changes on the public, the projects underway to remove your access to healthy, farm-fresh foods, the mRNA, RNA, and DNA gene therapies entering our food supply, and how the One Health agenda threatens to destroy both food freedom and medical freedom.

So what can we do about it?

The good news is that there are many things we can do. Some of these solutions may sound extreme or inconvenient. But I am guessing many of you chose wildly inconvenient and deeply courageous paths to protect yourselves, your families, and your patients during the Covid psyop, and to avoid being injected with mRNA shots. The substances you take in through your digestive tract can be just as harmful as those that come through a needle.

Do not give in. Do not comply. Do not take the convenient route. It leads to serfdom.
