Russians understand the very real threat of food shortages, and that risk is now global

It has been decades since the food shortages that followed the fall of the Soviet Union, and Russians are used to shop shelves fully stocked with a previously unimaginable array of products, many of them made within the country.

However, rising prices and increasingly insecure supply chains are posing a risk to people in Russia and around the world. In a recent interview, Svein Tore Holsether, the chief executive of one of the largest global fertilizer producers, Yara International, warned that rising gas prices could create a worldwide food crisis. Production of fertilizers, which farmers use to boost yields of their crops, requires large volumes of hydrocarbons as a raw material. Shortages could lead to slimmer harvests and costs could be passed on to consumers.

"It's impacting food prices all over the world and it hits the wallets of many people," Holsether warned. "But for some people, especially in the developing world, this is not only a question about the wallet, but it's a question of life or death."

3 children DEAD & 120 hospitalized in just 1 week due to Pfizer jab, Vietnam province suspends batch but 'may use it later on adults'

A student receives a Covid-19 vaccine shot in Thanh Hoa, December 1, 2021.
Thanh Hoa has suspended the use of a Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine batch after over 120 students were hospitalized following their inoculation.

Since November 30, the central province has been vaccinating children aged 15-17 with the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine. However, over 120 of the children were admitted to hospitals after exhibiting symptoms like nausea, high fever or breathing difficulties, the provincial Center for Disease Control (CDC) said Thursday.

Comment: This article was published on the 2nd of December, and in just 3 days since they started jabbing children, on the 30th November, they've documented over 120 children suffering adverse reactions. And it's likely many more have gone unreported.

Of these, 17 had severe reactions, but their health has stabilized and they continue to be monitored at the hospital, the center said. The cause of their symptoms has yet to be confirmed by Thanh Hoa authorities.

Comment: What's being reported in this Vietnam province reflects what's happening everywhere these experimental injections are being rolled out, however the only difference is that in this article they haven't tried that hard to disguise the fall out. Meanwhile Western mainstream news outlets report these predictable and preventable tragedies as 'rare' and 'mysterious' events with no mention of the many other injuries and deaths caused by the jabs and it's rare if they even mention the jabs at all: And check out SOTT radio's: NewsReal: The Red Line?

Michigan school shooting: Tipster led Detroit police to parents of suspect with $10K reward on offer

A tipster led Detroit police to the location of the parents of Michigan school shooting suspect Ethan Crumbley early Saturday.

James and Jennifer Crumbley were taken into custody following an extensive manhunt for the couple, who had failed to appear for their arraignment on Friday.

The pair - who were unarmed - "appeared to be hiding" in the basement of a commercial building at 1111 Bellevue Street and gave themselves up to police, according to Fox 2 Detroit.

Acting on a tip, officers activated their Special Response Team, set up a perimeter and did surveillance. The Crumbleys' car was left in the building's parking lot.

Comment: Associated Press further reports:
A judge imposed a combined $1 million bond Saturday for the parents of the Michigan teen charged with killing four students at Oxford High School, hours after police said they were caught hiding in a Detroit commercial building.

James and Jennifer Crumbley entered not guilty pleas to each of the four involuntary manslaughter counts against them during a hearing held on Zoom. Jennifer Crumbley sobbed and struggled to respond to the judge's questions at times and James Crumbley shook his head when a prosecutor said their son had full access to the gun used in the killings.

This image from 52-1 District Court shows a Zoom arraignment for Jennifer and James Crumbley in Oakland Co., Mich., on Saturday, Dec. 4, 2021. The parents of Ethan Crumbley, a teen accused of killing four students in a shooting at Oxford High School, plead not guilty to involuntary manslaughter charges.
Judge Julie Nicholson assigned bond of $500,000 apiece to each of the parents and required GPS monitoring if they pay to be released, agreeing with prosecutors that they posed a flight risk.

Defense attorneys for the Crumbleys still argued Saturday that they never intended to flee and had made plans to meet their lawyers early that morning. Attorney Shannon Smith accused prosecutors of "cherry picking" facts to release publicly, including that accusation that their teenage son had unrestricted access to the handgun prosecutors say his father purchased for him days before the shooting.

"Our clients are just as devastated as everyone else," Smith said, adding that the gun "was locked." She didn't provide more detail during Saturday's hearing.

Oakland County Prosecutor Karen McDonald's office filed involuntary manslaughter charges against the Crumbleys on Friday, accusing them of failing to intervene on the day of the tragedy despite being confronted with a drawing and chilling message — "blood everywhere" — that was found at the boy's desk. They could each face up to 15 years in prison, according to a spokeswoman for McDonald's office.

The Crumbleys committed "egregious" acts, from buying a gun on Black Friday and making it available to Ethan Crumbley to resisting his removal from school when they were summoned a few hours before the shooting, McDonald said Friday.

Authorities had been looking for the couple since Friday afternoon. Late Friday, U.S. Marshals announced a reward of up to $10,000 each for information leading to their arrests.

Smith, the Crumbleys' attorney, had said Friday that the pair left town earlier in the week "for their own safety" and would be returning to Oxford to face charges.


Royal College of Midwives apologises after referring to 'postnatal people' in newborn sleeping advice, excluded terms 'women' and mother'

postnatal people

The organisation made a public apology after facing a backlash over social media for excluding women and mothers in favour of 'postnatal people'
The Royal College of Midwives has apologised after excluding the words 'women' and 'mother' in favour of 'postnatal people' in its latest guidance for handling sleeping babies.

The guidance, which has since been taken down from the RCM's website, gave instructions for health professionals on how babies should be put to sleep.

'Parents' are mentioned several times over the 16 bullet points on one page, but a paragraph referring to postnatal mothers stood out.

It stated: 'Postnatal people in hospital should have easy access to the call bell system, be shown how to use it and ensure it's working - they should be provided with a bed-side cot for the baby to use while in hospital.'

Comment: The fruits of Woke ideology show it clearly serves as a vehicle and cover for a much more sinister agenda: Also check out SOTT radio's:


Tucker Carlson: Omicron is Democrat power grab and US will end up with Australia-type lockdowns

Fox News' Tucker Carlson on Wednesday accused Democrats of using the Omicron variant of COVID-19 as a pretext to trample Americans' civil liberties
Fox News host Tucker Carlson argued that Democrats are using COVID-19 and the unknown risks of the new Omicron variant as an excuse to seize more power and trample on Americans' civil liberties, raising the specter of a strict lockdown like the one in Australia.

The anchor opened his top-rated cable show, Tucker Carlson Tonight, on Wednesday by mocking the Biden Administration for imposing a travel ban on the citizens of Mozambique, where no Omicron cases have been identified so far, as part of a possible mix-up with the African country of Botswana, where two people may have contracted the new COVID variant.

'Either way, Mozambique and Botswana don't even share a border, so people in Mozambique were highly confused and probably a little hurt,' Carlson remarked.


Kyle Rittenhouse's vindication proves just how important local elections are

The victory of Kyle Rittenhouse shows that, even in blue-leaning cities in blue-leaning states, there are still enough heroic ordinary Americans whose minds are not corrupted by left-wing poison, capable of delivering a just verdict in an unjust case.

But the Rittenhouse trial also shows the importance of something else.

While power in America is more federally concentrated than ever, local politics remains crucial for preserving the dwindling rights and freedoms of ordinary Americans.

The Tucson Police Department released video from a Walmart parking lot showing an officer with a suspect in a motorized wheelchair. Moments later, the suspect was shot and killed.
A police officer is facing termination after fatally shooting a man in a wheelchair nine times in the back on Tucson's southwest side Monday night.

On Tuesday during a press conference, Tucson Police Chief Chris Magnus identified the officer involved as Ryan Remington, who has been on the force for four years.

The victim has been identified as Richard Lee Richards.

"To be very clear, I am deeply disturbed and troubled by Officer Remington's actions. His use of deadly force in this incident is a clear violation of department policy and directly contradicts multiple aspects of our use of force and training," said Magnus.


UK's minimum gap for Covid booster jabs to be halved to three months

Health Secretary Sajid Javid
The UK's minimum gap for Covid booster jabs will be halved from six months to three, after the government accepted advice from its vaccines watchdog to speed up the programme to limit the spread of the Omicron variant.

The health secretary, Sajid Javid, confirmed that all adults would be offered the jab, after the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) announced that the waiting time was being cut for all adults, with priority for booking to be decided by the NHS.

The watchdog said adults aged 18 to 39 should be offered booster jabs and recommended cutting the gap between second and third doses from at least six months to at least three months. Speaking in the Commons soon afterwards, Javid said the rollout would be staggered by age group, with older people invited for boosters first.

The JCVI advised that severely immunocompromised people should be eligible for boosters three months after their primary course of three vaccinations. The committee also said 12- to 15-year-olds should be able to get their second Covid jabs for the first time.

"I have accepted this advice in full," Javid told MPs, also outlining previously announced measures to try to curb the spread of Omicron, including travel restrictions, mandatory self-isolation for close contacts of people who test positive for the variant, and mandatory masks on public transport and in shops in England.

The number of confirmed cases of the Omicron variant in the UK had reached 11, he said, with two more detected in England.

Comment: Preliminary findings: Omicron variant is proving to be a non-starter.

Big Tech and America's woke military care deeply for the feelings of America's child molesters.

At least this is what my recent suspension from Twitter would suggest. Last Thursday, Jack Dorsey and company suspended me for seven days for suggesting that if pedophiles received the death penalty, there would be fewer incidents of child abuse.

Comment: Isn't censorship a passive form of attack?


Los Angeles looters freed after arrest due to city's 'zero-bail' policy

Los Angeles: Smash and Grab
Last week a string of "smash and grab" robberies were staged in several locations in California over the Thanksgiving holiday. In Los Angeles, those that were arrested were freed without bail as part of the city's "zero-bail" policy under District Attorney George Gascon.

The situation with organized theft in the state has been described as an ongoing spree that had shoppers changing their in-person shopping plans. High-end department stores, jewelry shops, and other retail establishments were targeted by groups of people who smashed windows and stole at will.
The Los Angeles Police Department arrested 14 alleged robbers connected to 11 store lootings in which "nearly $340,000" worth of goods were stolen, according to the Daily Mail. These suspects are back out on the streets again thanks to the city's "zero bail" policy.
