The political left has proven beyond a doubt that they are authoritarians

communist hive
Nearly 20 years ago when I started my work in the independent media the common mantra among my peers was noting the existence of the "false left/right paradigm" - The idea that Democrats and Republicans were essentially the same and were working towards the same exact authoritarian goals. This was before the Ron Paul movement and the libertarian/patriot shift within conservative circles when Neocons (fake conservatives) dominated all Republican discourse.

In the 16 years since there has been some interesting developments at the state level, with a return to true conservative and constitutional principles. Conservative ideals were on the verge of death in the early 2000s, but thanks to Ron Paul and others there has been a resurgence. The false left/right paradigm still applies in many ways and we have to remain vigilant, but the most blatant RINO frauds are quickly losing favor.

Supreme Court declines to halt police officer's lawsuit against black lives matter protest organizer

The Supreme Court declined Monday to stop a police officer's lawsuit against a Black Lives Matter activist who led the 2016 protest where he was injured by another individual.

Black Lives Matter activist DeRay Mckesson had asked the justices to decide whether the First Amendment prevents a protest leader from being held personally liable for violence perpetrated by another individual when the organizer "neither authorized, directed, nor ratified" the act. A Baton Rouge officer sued Mckesson after he was hit in the head with a rock during a 2016 protest, alleging he "incited the violence" and "did nothing to calm the crowd," according to the complaint.

The justices decision not to take up the case left in place a lower court's ruling allowing the lawsuit to proceed.

Comment: Even though the BLM riots were completely unacceptable, this doesn't bode well for other protest leaders, or a certain former president.


Retired Army General's testimony links private contractor to Abu Ghraib abuses

An Army general who investigated the abuse of prisoners 20 years ago at Iraq's infamous Abu Ghraib prison testified Tuesday that a civilian contractor instructed prison guards to "soften up" detainees for interrogations.

The retired general, Antonio Taguba, told jurors that the contractor, Steven Stefanowicz, even tried to intimidate the general as he investigated the Abu Ghraib abuses.

"He would lean on the table staring me down. He did not answer questions directly," Taguba said. "He was trying to intimidate me."

Taguba's testimony was the strongest evidence yet that civilian employees of the Virginia-based military contractor CACI played a role in the abuse of Abu Ghraib inmates.

Three former inmates at the prison are suing CACI in federal court in Alexandria, alleging that the company contributed to the tortuous treatment they suffered. The trial, delayed by more than 15 years of legal wrangling, is the first time that Abu Ghraib inmates have been able to bring a civil case in front of a U.S. jury.

The lawsuit alleges that CACI is liable for the three plaintiffs' mistreatment because the company provided civilian interrogators to the Army who were assigned to Abu Ghraib and conspired with the military police who were serving as prison guards to torture the inmates.


Victims sue Japan govt. over Covid vaccine injuries and failure to disclose risks, nation's public broadcaster reports

japan covid vaccine
A group of people in Japan is seeking compensation from the central government, claiming it had spread damage from coronavirus vaccines by not publicizing their side effects.

They filed their claim with the Tokyo District Court on Wednesday. The 13 plaintiffs are family members of 8 people who died after being vaccinated and 5 people claiming to have suffered health damage from the vaccines.

The plaintiffs claim that they could not know about the risks of the coronavirus vaccines as the government promoted inoculation through various media but did not publicize the side effects reported by medical institutions.

The plaintiffs also claim that the government failed to take sufficient measures for people suffering health damage from the vaccines.

Comment: Notably, in the latter stage of the contrived coronavirus crisis, Japan's Health Ministry was one of the few to officially warn against mandating the experimental jabs, it also highlighted some of the serious side effects, and required that they be recorded: Japan's health ministry issues warning over serious side effects caused by Covid vaccines, requires hospitals to document victim's symptoms

And, in just the last few months, a number of its universities came together to sound the alarm over other deadly risks associated with the jabs: Risks associated with blood transfusions from Covid mRNA vaccinated individuals exposed in new study from Japan

Footage of the press conference for the lawsuit mentioned in the article:

"People are dying & the reality of what's happening is being hidden" "Me & my spouse stupidly believed that just getting this vaccine would definitely save us - two days later he passed away" "The vaccine damages are not shared with the public" "They make the damage from the vaccine seem smaller or ignore it altogether" Whilst this is Japan - they speak for the ENTIRE Western World & the same is true for all Countries who pushed this ineffective dangerous experimental injection.


Climate change court cases are on the rise. Here's why.

climate change protestors
Yesterday, a group of senior women from Switzerland won what is being called a "landmark" human rights case concerning "Climate Change".

At a hearing in Strasbourg, the European Court of Human Rights found the government of Switzerland had violated the women's human rights by "failing to do enough" to combat the alleged effect of 'man-made climate change'.

Calling it a "decision that will set a precedent for future climate lawsuits", Reuters reports:
The European Court of Human Rights' ruling, in favour of the more than 2,000 Swiss women who brought the case, is expected to resonate in court decisions across Europe and beyond [...] The Swiss women, known as KlimaSeniorinnen and aged over 64, said their government's climate inaction put them at risk of dying during heatwaves. They argued their age and gender made them particularly vulnerable to such climate change impacts.


US ends annual training exercise with 'largest mass fly-off' of B-2A stealth bombers in years

The U.S. Air Force just released photos of a pretty impressive display of airpower from Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri, where 12 B-2A Spirit stealth bombers executed a mass fly-off as part of exercise Spirit Vigilance on April 15, 2024. Spirit Vigilance is an annual exercise that allows Airmen to exercise their abilities to be always ready to execute global strike operations anytime, anywhere.

This is one of the largest, if not the largest, mass departures of B-2s in recent years, with 60% of the stealth bomber fleet involved. Until now, the largest was the mass fly-off of Spirit Vigilance 2022 with eight bombers. The video published together with the photos shows crews scrambling to their aircraft, before lining on the taxiway on their way to takeoff.

Comment: As has been become glaringly apparent in recent months, training and real world are two very different scenarios:

The revelation debunks Kiev's "myths," a Russian official accused of mass abductions has said.

Over 160 Ukrainian children allegedly "kidnapped by Russia" have been discovered living in Germany, the country's Federal Criminal Police (BKA) has confirmed.

The head of Ukrainian national police, Ivan Vygovsky, on Wednesday hailed the discovery, telling national media that he had discussed the issue with Holger Munch, president of the BKA, during a meeting earlier in this week.

Comment: Ukraine's accusations of 'kidnapping' have always been spurious, but who's really harming children in this conflict?

Ukraine's goal of eradicating bilingual media content has almost been achieved, the government has claimed

Ukraine's ban on using the Russian language in the media will take full effect three months from now, Kiev's state language protection commissioner, Taras Kremin, has said.

Since gaining independence, Ukraine has been a bilingual nation, with most citizens able to speak or understand both Russian and Ukrainian. After the US-backed coup in Kiev in 2014, the new nationalist authorities adopted policies aimed at suppressing the Russian language, on the grounds of national unity and security.

Comment: The current policies of the Ukrainian government is what the collective west with few exceptions support. If voters in Western countries have difficulties finding out what their governments are about, keep the example of Ukraine in mind. if their government supports them, they might themselves not be far behind in how far they would be willing to go given the chance.

'There are no Russian-speaking Ukrainians' - Kiev
There is no such thing as a Russian-speaking Ukrainian citizen, Kiev's state language protection commissioner, Taras Kremin, has declared. In recent years, the country has introduced a frenzy of measures to sever historical and cultural ties with Russia, as it scrambles to strengthen the status of its own language despite accusations of prejudice against national minorities.

In an interview aired by the Ukrainian branch of the US state-run Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL), Kremin rejected the suggestion that some Ukrainians could be called "Russophones," describing the term as "a marker introduced by the Russian ideology."

"We are all Ukrainian citizens... Ukrainian is the dominant language in all spheres of public life. Regardless of whether it is national communities or foreigners, everyone in the country must have a command of the Ukrainian language," the ombudsman insisted.

Earlier this year, Kremin stated that Ukrainians who speak Russian should not be referred to as "Russian-speaking," claiming that the term had been used for decades by "Russian propaganda" to promote internal divisions in Ukraine. Citing a 2021 Constitutional Court ruling, he also insisted there were only Ukrainian citizens who had been "Russianized."

According to a March 2022 poll by the Sociological Group Rating, about 20% of Ukrainians considered Russian to be their native language. A Social Monitoring survey in 2021 suggested that more than 50% of Ukrainians were willing to read books and watch movies in Russian.

Ukrainian authorities embarked on a campaign to push Russian out of all areas of life immediately after the 2014 Western-backed Maidan coup. The measures sparked widespread public outrage and were among the key reasons behind the hostilities in Donbass.

In 2018, the Ukrainian Constitutional Court overturned a 2012 law granting regional status to the Russian language, while at the same time Kiev adopted initiatives seeking to curb its use in education, mass media, business, and culture.

Russia has repeatedly denounced Ukraine's language policies. President Vladimir Putin said that Moscow's military operation against its neighbor was partly to protect people who consider themselves part of Russian culture.

On Monday, the speaker of the Ukrainian parliament, Ruslan Stefanchuk, went as far as to deny the existence of Russian ethnic minorities, arguing that they had no special rights. The statement sparked outrage in Moscow, with Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova saying the remarks came from "the Nazis of the 21st century."

Zelensky's comedy partner slams campaign against Russian language
Boris Shefir co-founded the Kvartal 95 (District 95) comedy studio in 2003 with Zelensky and a group of their school friends. Most of these comedians and producers - including Shefir's brother, Sergey - followed Zelensky into politics, taking prime positions in his administration after he was elected president of Ukraine in 2019.

Shefir was not among them. Speaking to the Ukrainian branch of the US government-funded Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL) outlet on Thursday, he said that he has had "no relationship" with Zelensky since the conflict with Russia began in 2022.

"For two years, I have not called or talked to him," Shefir said. "He is working with other people now. He does not communicate with me, does not call me. My calls remain unanswered."

"Well, you see, I speak Russian," he explained. "I love the Russian language, Russian culture...I can't watch Pushkin's monuments being destroyed in my country."


Australia bins 35% of multi-billion dollar Covid vaccine supply

As part of its pandemic response, the Australian government purchased 267.3 million doses of Covid vaccines, enough to vaccinate Australia's population of approximately 26 million people ten times over.

But figures released to me by the Department of Health (DOH) this week confirm that, three years into the vaccine program, only 70 million doses, or 26% of the 267.3 million doses purchased, have been administered, while 35% of vaccines doses have been wasted since the start of the vaccine rollout.

Last week, the Australian reported that more than 35% of Covid vaccines were being tossed out as of January due to oversupply. The revelation came from the DOH's public submission to the federal Covid inquiry.
