Post-Soviet state's president 'controlled from abroad' - opposition leader

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken speaks with Moldovan President Maia Sandu at the USAID "Democracy Delivers" on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York.
Moldova's opposition leader has accused the head of state, Maia Sandu, of being directed by outside powers seeking to bring the country into NATO.

Igor Dodon, a former president, warned in a live stream on social media on Friday that President Sandu and the ruling Action and Solidarity party "will do everything in the near future - in a year and a half - for Moldova to change the Constitution and abandon its neutral status."

"Sandu has a task from those who control her from abroad, to make Moldova a part of NATO," he claimed.

Taking Moldova, a post-Soviet republic and neighbor of Ukraine, into the US-led military bloc would be equal to "involving the country in the conflict," the opposition leader warned. "Give up on tying us with NATO," he urged, addressing Sandu.

Since Sandu replaced Dodon as president in 2020, Moldova has taken an increasingly pro-Western course. Chisinau has fully backed Kiev in the conflict with Moscow. Last year, the nation of 2.6 million was granted the status of an EU candidate, together with Ukraine.

Comment: Russia is smart to not remove the peacekeepers. Without them there's nothing stopping NATO from using regime change in the country to get their way.

Woman terrified as giant block of ice falls from plane and crashes through roof

A block of ice decimated a woman's roof after "falling from a landing plane", leaving her horrified after it caused £12,000 in damage.

A massive bang alerted Dr Carla George, 45, to the incredible incident, right as she was in the middle of a work call at her home in Banbury in Oxfordshire on Tuesday last week (September 12).

When she went to investigate, she was gobsmacked to find herself seeing the sky through her roof - and a huge block of ice on the floor.

She thought there had been "some sort of explosion", and quickly called the fire brigade, reports Manchester Evening News.

Volodymyr Zelensky has asked Marina Abramović, the performance artist, to be an ambassador for Ukraine.

Ms Abramović, a fierce critic of Vladimir Putin's illegal invasion, said the Ukrainian president had asked for her help in rebuilding schools.

The 76-year-old Serbian is holding her first solo exhibition in the UK and is the first female artist to have a major show in the Main Galleries of the Royal Academy of Arts in London.

Comment: To learn more about the established connections between Abramovic and child trafficking among the higher echelons of society, the second volume of Mouthy Buddha's "Elite Human Trafficking" series comes highly recommended:

The know nothing President

Know Nothing President

Joe Biden has said repeatedly that he has never talked to his son, Hunter, about his business dealings. The obvious question is, why not? If his son is making millions of dollars legitimately in international business, wouldn't it only make sense for his father to ask him about his business? Wouldn't every father be interested in his son's extremely successful career? It is not like Joe Biden and Hunter are estranged. They're seen together all the time. There are pictures all over the internet of Joe and Hunter boarding Air Force One and Air Force Two together. They are seen yucking it up a basketball games with President Obama, out to dinner together, attending events together, staying in the same house, yet Joe Biden claims that he never spoke to Hunter about his business. Never. Not even once? Not one word? Why not?

Joe has said Hunter is "the smartest guy I know", and he supposedly is a highly successful international businessman making millions of dollars, but Joe never asked him about his business. Every other father in the world would talk to their son about their business, but we're supposed to believe that for some reason Joe was not interested at all, not curious, doesn't care about what Hunter does for a living. That preposterous claim is an admission that Joe knew that Hunter was committing crimes in his business. When someone goes to great lengths to give himself plausible deniability of crimes, it means he knows something illegal is occurring. He does not want to know about it, so he doesn't have to lie. It's like Sargeant Schultz in the old TV show, Hogan's Heroes. "I see nothing. I know nothing." So, Joe's statement claiming to have never spoken to Hunter about his business dealings means that Joe knew that Hunter's business dealings were illegal. And if Joe tried to talk to Hunter about his business and Hunter refused to tell Joe anything to protect him, then that should have been further evidence to Joe that Hunter was acting criminally.

But now, we have found out that Joe's claim of never speaking to Hunter about his business was a lie. Joe did speak to Hunter a lot about his business dealings. There are records, eyewitness accounts, photographs, White House visitor logs which show the Joe Biden spoke on the phone and met with several of Hunter's business associates on many occasions. So, the next question is, why did Joe feel the need to lie about not discussing Hunter's business with him? Why was it so important for Joe to separate himself from Hunter's international business dealings? The answer is simple, Joe knew that Hunter was corrupt. There is no other way around it. If Joe actually believed that Hunter's business dealings were on the up and up, then he would have openly admitted to the public that he did have discussions with Hunter about his business and would have no problem admitting to having met Hunter's business partners.

UK and Israel: Has the fightback against weaponised antisemitism begun?

Jewish groups and academics are finally exposing the UK establishment's smear campaign to silence criticism of Israel and destroy the left.

There has been a wave of highly damaging but unsubstantiated allegations of antisemitism against students and academics, according to a new survey of British universities.

In 38 of 40 cases brought against lecturers, students, student unions and societies in the five years to 2022, no evidence was found to support the accusations of antisemitism. Hearings in the other two cases have yet to conclude.

Hidden in the raw figures is the enormous toll such false allegations take on the accused: personal suffering and reputational and career damage, as well as the additional chilling effect on academic freedom in the wider university community.

That is unlikely to be an unfortunate side product of these allegations. It seems to be precisely their point.

Brismes, a group representing British academics studying the Middle East, published the survey findings in a report this month that suggests wrongful or malicious claims of antisemitism are likely to increase in number.

The spate of allegations was unleashed after universities began adopting a revised, and highly controversial, definition of antisemitism issued by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) in 2016.

Three-quarters of universities have now rubber-stamped the definition after Gavin Williamson, as education secretary, threatened in 2020 to cut the funding of any that refused to do so.

A majority of the IHRA's 11 illustrative examples - some of which, as the report notes, contradict the main definition - shift the focus away from the traditional meaning of Jew-hatred to emphasise criticism of Israel.

As many warned, that has handed Israel's most staunch supporters a dragnet they can use to smear anyone expressing solidarity with Palestinians against Israeli oppression, while intimidating onlookers into a complicit silence.

In truth, that was always the aim. The IHRA definition grew out of covert efforts by the Israeli government to blur traditional distinctions between antisemitism and anti-Zionism to shield itself from critics, including human rights groups, who were highlighting Israel's apartheid rule over Palestinians.

DHS to offer work permits, deportation protection to over 470,000 Venezuelans amid new border surge

© Fox News
Migrants mostly from Venezuela move into Eagle Pass, Texas • Sept. 20, 2023
New York City politicians have been calling for the move announced by DHS...

The Biden administration on Wednesday announced that it will be offering hundreds of thousands of Venezuelan migrants already in the U.S. - including those in the country illegally - work permits and protections from deportations, just as numbers are skyrocketing at the southern border.

Officials announced a move to redesignate Venezuela for Temporary Protected Status, which allows migrants to apply for deportation protections and work permits if they have arrived for a certain date.

The latest extension will see TPS extended for 18 months and applies to nationals who were in the country on or before July 31. Venezuela was last extended, but not re-designated, for TPS in 2022, meaning it was not open to new applicants. This redesignation will open it up to new applicants, and officials told reporters they estimate it will protect around 472,000 foreign nationals.

The designation is typically based on conditions in the designated country and is based on three grounds: armed ongoing conflict, environmental disasters or "extraordinary and temporary conditions." Officials on Wednesday cited the latter.

What does "far-right" even mean anymore?

far left
"Far right" is basically anything that contests the Establishment narrative.

Anybody taking the legacy, corporate media at face value these days is likely under the impression that the entire world is being overrun with "far-right" extremists, after all, anything orthogonal to the current WEF-inspired world order seems to be, by definition, far right.

If it wasn't apparent already, it became obvious during the pandemic how establishment narratives are promulgated by corporate media cartels to enshrine elite-approved canon. For that to work, it was key to neutralize non-conforming impulses, and the way to do that, it seemed, was to label it all as "far right".

The term has now been so misplaced and over-used that it becomes impossible to differentiate between fast rising maverick politicians from skinheads with swastika tattoos. Make no mistake, this is deliberate.

far right2
The standard playbook is to cast anything gaining momentum as "populist" - which is always implicated as being wrong-headed and retrograde, even though a literal definition of the word simply connotes that large swaths of the population are feeling strongly about something (usually some manner of getting screwed by the elites).


Eagle Pass issues disaster declaration as more than 4,000 migrants cross over two days

Migrants at the border crossing • Eagle Pass, Texas
The mayor of Eagle Pass, Texas, signed an emergency declaration after thousands of migrants crossed into the border town.

Eagle Pass is accustomed to regular migration since the city of under 30,000 became one of the most heavily-crossed areas along the U.S.-Mexico border in recent years.

However, the number of people crossing over the last couple of days — which the Texas Department of Public Safety places at more than 4,000 — has overwhelmed the city's local police and fire departments, according to Mayor Rolando Salinas Jr.

"The emergency declaration grants us the ability to request financial resources to provide additional services caused by the influx of undocumented immigrants," Salinas wrote in Wednesday's emergency declaration.

In a rare move, U.S. Customs and Border Protection redirected its agents from processing vehicles and the railway along the busy trade port between Piedras Negras, Mexico, and Eagle Pass in order to assist Border Patrol with taking migrants into custody.

On Wednesday evening, hundreds of migrants — many from Venezuela — could be seen under the Eagle Pass-Piedras Negras International Bridge waiting to be processed.

Illegal migrant surge forces Biden administration to SUSPEND entries as shelters reach capacity with border

The El Paso port of entry with Mexico is shut down while personnel at that crossing point are diverted to assist with processing the massive surge of illegal migrants who arrived between entry ports in Texas.

In a Friday statement, Custom and Border Protection (CBP) announced 'temporary suspension' at the busy Bridge of the Americas (BOTA) port shared between El Paso and Ciudad Juárez. There was no specification in the statement on when the port will return to normal operation, just a note that CBP would do so 'as quickly as feasible.'

'The temporary suspension at BOTA will allow CBP's Office of Field Operations officers to assist the U.S. Border Patrol in processing noncitizens who have arrived between the ports of entry including vulnerable populations like families and unaccompanied children,' CBP said in the Friday statement.

Totalitarian staple adopted by WEF client state. Will lawyers be next?

Today I returned from lecturing on Fifth Generation Warfare in Toronto, Canada. This was my second invited lecture to a group of Toronto "resistance" members, the first being almost exactly one year ago. Excellent talks were provided by Drs. Jill Glasspool-Malone, Mark Trozzi, and Byram Bridle. At the theater I had the opportunity to meet with many old friends and newly found ones, including both Tammy Peterson (Mrs. Jordan Peterson) and various anonymous physicians who I have been in contact with since the very beginning of my journey objecting to the mismanagement and rampant ethical breaches associated with the COVIDcrisis.

Frankly, I was shocked by what I learned from talking with these colleagues.

Many are already aware that the World Economic Forum client state formerly known as "Canada" (managed on behalf of the WEF and it's corporate members by their "young leader" program graduates Justin Trudeau and Christina Freeland, who were placed by the WEF into this position to do its bidding), and specifically the Provence now generally known as the Peoples Republic of Ontario, is now requiring that Dr. Jordon Peterson atone for his thoughtcrimes by participating in a mandated and court-ordered reeducation program.
