In Iraq, birth defects are a visible embodiment of the enduring toxic legacy of war for future generations and the environment. The Falluja Hospital's birth defects Facebook page, where medical staff catalogue cases, reveals the striking diversity and quantity of congenital anomalies.[1] Babies in Falluja are born with hydrocephaly, cleft palates, tumors, elongated heads, overgrown limbs, short limbs and malformed ears, noses and spines.

The accompanying case reports are brief and often incorporate prognoses like "incompatible with life" or "stillborn." The reproductive history of the mother is sometimes included as well. While most of these children do not survive, some live for weeks, months or years, often in pain and with grave disabilities.

Samira Alaani, a pediatrician at the Falluja General Hospital, is among several doctors who started noticing a wide range of uncommon birth defects among the infants delivered after the start of the US occupation in 2003. Not only were birth defects high in number, they were also new and unusual in kind. Alaani and her colleagues were among the first to sound international alarm by publishing reports documenting the high rate of birth defects observed in hospitals in Falluja and Basra. In 2013, Alaani stated in an interview with the BBC:

Joe Rogan says Google is 'hiding information' about vaccine-related deaths

joe rogan
Mega-popular podcaster Joe Rogan said that Google is "hiding information" about vaccine-related deaths — and that he's ceased using Google as a search engine.

What are the details?

In an interview last week with former New York Times writer Alex Berenson — who's taken heat for raising red flags about COVID-19 vaccines and America's response to the pandemic — Rogan revisited the false narrative from the likes of CNN that he was taking "horse dewormer" to cure his COVID infection when a doctor legitimately prescribed him ivermectin, the Daily Wire said.

"What is the source of all this? What's the epicenter of bulls**t?" Rogan asked, according to the outlet, adding, "Specifically in my case, where they're saying, 'horse dewormer.' Like why? Who's doing that?"

Comment: Rogan is on fire! As more data comes out about vaccine side effects and lack of vaccine efficacy the technocrats are going into overdrive to hide the truth and quell dissenting voices. See also:

The murder of Southend West MP Sir David Amess in a stabbing attack on Friday has left residents of the Essex town and politicians in shock. Tributes have been paid to him by members of all major parties.

Details are emerging of the identity and past of the man who murdered a Conservative backbench MP in his Essex constituency.

The suspect in the killing of Sir David Amess was named on Saturday as Ali Harbi Ali, a 25-year-old Somali man who lived in London.

Comment: Sky News also reported that "Ali and his younger siblings were among the first Muslim pupils at the Parish Church Junior and Infant school". His former primary school teacher said he happily took part in morning assembly and sang Christian hymns. He also said:
"Ali wasn't a high-flyer, but was a hard-working child, especially good at maths. We had plenty of naughty boys, but he wasn't one of them. He was a good boy, polite and friendly and readily joined in with the other children. I think he was a chess player.

"I would never have said he was on course for anything other than a positive outcome. He wasn't an isolated child and engaged with his classmates."
Ali later attended Riddlesdown Collegiate School in Purley where he passed A-levels and went on to study at university in 2015.

Greenbaumed? Sounds likely.

More than a third of UK music industry workers lost jobs in 2020

Isle of Wight festival September 2021. The Covid pandemic forced the cancellation of festivals, venues and tours and despite reopening it has had a longer lasting impact on the industry.
More than a third of UK music industry workers lost their jobs last year - 69,000 in total - as venues closed, festivals were scrapped, tours ground to a halt and the pandemic wiped billions off the value of the sector.

UK Music, the umbrella organisation representing the commercial music industry from artists and record labels to the live music sector, said the value of the industry almost halved last year due to the financially crippling impact of the Covid crisis.

The music industry's contribution to the wider UK economy, ranging from music sales and licensing to stadium tours, gigs in grassroots venues and merchandise, plummeted from a record £5.8bn in 2019 to £3.1bn last year.

Comment: There are only so many jobs to go around and the music industry wasn't the only sector to suffer massive job losses, so where are all these people going to find employment? More so considering that the British government has extended its 'emergency' powers into next year, meaning that there are more surprises in store for the country, and instability like this isn't good for business: Also check out SOTT radio's: NewsReal: Zero Carbon - Zero Covid: The Reckless and Extremist Ideologies at the Heart of Government

An Illinois mother of three shot a man dead after he — and his girlfriend — refused to kiss her, authorities said.

Claudia Resendiz-Florez, 28, had just moved in with James P. Jones, 29, and his girlfriend at the Preserve Woodfield apartment complex in Rolling Meadows when a love triangle fatally exploded, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

The three had been drinking together Thursday night when Resendiz-Florez asked Jones for a kiss, which he refused — instead kissing his girlfriend.

Mayor Lori Lightfoot and Chicago have an order in place to have city workers report their COVID-19 vaccination status.
Mayor Lori Lightfoot of Chicago claimed on Monday that those police officers who oppose the vaccine mandate in the Windy City are attempting to "induce an insurrection."

When asked about the police union's refusal to back the city's vaccine mandates, Lightfoot said, "What we've seen from the Fraternal Order of Police, in particularly leadership, is a lot of misinformation, a lot of half truths, and, frankly, flat out lies in order to induce an insurrection. And we're not having that."

"And so we want to make it very, very clear that the law is on our side, we feel very confident about it. And what we said even after, when I heard that he said, even after the lawsuit was filed, we notified them, is urging members of the department to ignore their chain of command," Lightfoot said.

Comment: The Chicago police are not alone:

CNN media clown Brian Stelter cuts off Bari Weiss, asks 'Who's stopping the conversation?'

Brian Stelter
As former New York Times editor Bari Weiss warned that narrow media coverage and rampant self-censorship have created a world gone mad, CNN's Brian Stelter interrupted her to ask, "Who's the people stopping the conversation?"

"You write there are tens of millions of Americans who aren't on the hard-Left or the hard-Right, who feel the world has gone mad. So, in what ways has the world gone mad?" Stelter asked, airing a part of a pre-recorded interview he conducted with Weiss for Sunday's episode of "Reliable Sources." Weiss replied by citing a litany of media bias, blackouts, and sins of omission:

Comment: Commendable as Weiss' resignation over the principle of freedom of speech may be, she is still afflicted with some big blind spots:

"Was it the vaccine, son?"
National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases head and chief White House medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday on ABC's This Week that fully vaccinated Americans could enjoy Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas gatherings with family.

Anchor Martha Raddatz said:
"Dr. Fauci, we know the best way to keep safe is to be vaccinated. But what are your guidelines for the upcoming holidays? Will you be giving out Halloween candy? What do we do with Thanksgiving and Christmas and other holidays?"
Fauci said:
"I believe strongly that particularly in the vaccinated people if you are vaccinated, and your family members are vaccinated, those who are eligible, that is obviously very young children and not yet eligible, that you can enjoy the holidays. You can enjoy Halloween, trick-or-treating, and certainly Thanksgiving with your family and Christmas with your family."
Segment begins at 6:40


Comment: On message, Fauci's 'inclusion coercion' dismisses all non-vaxxers for holidays eternal.

Why can't we Americans do what the Afghans did and take back control of our country?

The death of friends due to Covid lockdowns and political persecution won't discourage us - instead, they plant in us new seeds of resistance. Crappy movies and books can't distract us forever.

Since the Taliban's unexpected success in reclaiming their country, the one thing I've been losing sleep over is, well, why can't we have what they have? Are we Americans really so gaslit and demoralized by the self-anointed "adults in the room" that we dare not challenge their presence? Things are already bad and getting worse for too many of us. The ongoing improperly motivated Covid lockdowns and vaccine mandates are backing many of us into corners out of which we have no choice but to fight.

Just the other day, I was riding a public bus to purchase a vehicle in a distant town. The driver refused admittance to a scraggly man who had clearly been waiting for too long under the scorching sun. In all but America's greatest metropolises, to ride the bus is to be a member of the nation's underclass. It means you are carless, and might as well be shoeless.

On this particularly sweltering day, the scraggly man was told there was no room on the bus for him, and he would have to wait a half-hour more for the next bus. Our bus was almost completely empty, yet Covid restrictions were such that 75% of seats had to remain empty. Swerving, the driver barked into his mirror at another passenger to pull his mask up over his nose.
