Syria demands U.S. pay for air strike victims

Syria demands U.S. pay for air strike victims --Damascus rejects Pentagon findings, demands troop withdrawal | 21 May 2022 | The Syrian permanent mission to the UN stated on Friday that the U.S. must withdraw its troops from the country at once and pay reparations for the deaths of dozens of civilians in a 2019 airstrike in the town of Baghuz. Damascus categorically rejected a Pentagon report claiming it was not at fault for the attack, declaring its conclusions represent "an admission of negligence that calls for accountability." The Pentagon had released a report on Tuesday claiming the March 18, 2019, airstrike targeting an Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL [but still I-CIA-SIS]) encampment in Syria's Baghuz, initially believed to have killed some 70 people, did not violate the rules of engagement or laws of war.

3 Air Force cadets who refused vaccine won't be commissioned

3 Air Force cadets who refused vaccine won't be commissioned | 22 May 2022 | Three cadets at the U.S. Air Force Academy who have refused the COVID-19 vaccine will not be commissioned as military officers but will graduate with bachelor's degrees, the academy said Saturday. Academy spokesman Dean Miller said that a fourth cadet who had refused the vaccine until about a week ago, decided to be vaccinated and will graduate and become an Air Force officer. In a statement, Miller said that while the three will get a degree "they will not be commissioned into the United States Air Force as long as they remain unvaccinated." He added that a decision on whether to require the three to reimburse the United States for education costs in lieu of service will be made by the secretary of the Air Force. As of Saturday, the Air Force is the only military academy, so far, where cadets are not being commissioned due to vaccine refusal.

Butcher Treats Every Stray Dog and Cat to Tasty Meat Scraps at His Store | 21 May 2022 | A butcher in Turkey with an indiscriminate love for dogs and cats has a policy at his store: he offers meat scraps to every stray animal that comes to his doorstep, and he has gained a loyal following for his kindness. Ikram Korkmazer, 51, grew up in the Turgutlu district of Turkey's Manisa province and started working at a butcher’s shop in 1981. He now has 41 years of experience in the business. Ikram's store, Yeşim Meat Gallery, is named after the first stray animal he ever fed from his counter, a street cat he named Yeşim. (Video)

Judge Blocks Biden Administration From Lifting Title 42

Judge Blocks Biden Administration From Lifting Title 42 | 21 May 2022 | A federal judge has blocked the Biden administration from ending Title 42, a border policy that has enabled border authorities to quickly expel illegal immigrants at the southern U.S. border back to Mexico on public health grounds amid the COVID-19 pandemic. In a 47-page ruling on Friday, Judge Robert Summerhays in Louisiana granted a nationwide injunction to block the termination of Title 42, saying the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) move to terminate the policy didn't comply with the Administrative Procedure Act that requires public notice and time to gather public comment on the plan.

There is also a probable case in Sydney, New South Wales, involving a man in his 40s who recently traveled to Europe. Testing is being carried out to confirm the case.

Plans revealed for U.S. to keep troops in Europe

Plans revealed for U.S. to keep troops in Europe --New bases and additional numbers are also possible in a show of force against Russia, CNN reports | 21 May 2022 | The U.S. plans to keep 100,000 troops in Eastern Europe for the foreseeable future, potentially even increasing the number if it perceives a threat from Russia to NATO or its two new prospective members, Sweden and Finland, several officials told CNN on Friday. If NATO carries out more military exercises in the area or the "security environment" changes, the U.S. could bring in more troops or even build more military bases in the region, the officials said. The plans are reportedly under consideration following a Thursday meeting of NATO military heads in Brussels, and they will be presented to a meeting of the alliance's defense ministers next month.

Half-Million Migrants Cross Border in 10 Weeks

Half-Million Migrants Cross Border in 10 Weeks | 21 May 2022 | More than a half-million migrants illegally crossed the southwest border with Mexico during a 10-week period ending on May 15. The record-setting mass migration crisis is overwhelming Border Patrol and NGO resources as they deal with the chaotic level of border crossings. Between April 1 and May 15 approximately 513,000 migrants illegally crossed the southwest border with Mexico. The number reflects apprehensions cited in the April Southwest Border Migration Report and unofficial numbers obtained from a law enforcement source within CBP. The source stated that agents apprehended approximately 47,000 migrants just in the past seven days.

The FBI Is Investigating American Parents as Domestic Terrorists

The FBI Is Investigating American Parents as Domestic Terrorists --FBI whistleblowers confirm that the agency is targeting anti-mask and anti-vaccine mandate parents | 21 May 2022 | Reps. Jim Jordan and Mike Johnson co-signed a letter to AG Merrick Garland informing him that whistleblowers had confirmed the FBI was actually investigating concerned parents as "domestic terrorists" using a so-called "threat tag" created by the FBI's Counterterrorism Division. This is exactly what AG Merrick Garland testified (under oath before Congress) was not happening at the FBI. Garland told the House Judiciary Committee last year that even suggesting that the FBI would bother will angry parents at school board meetings was absurd

Oz Keeps Lead as Vote Count Continues in Pennsylvania Senate Primary | 19 May 2022 | Literally and figuratively, every vote counts in the Pennsylvania Republican U.S. Senate race between Dr. Mehmet Oz and former hedge fund CEO David McCormick, which remains too close to call two days after the May 17 primary. As of 3 p.m. local time on May 19, Oz, the heart surgeon-turned-TV celebrity who was endorsed by former President Donald Trump leads with 417,250 votes (31.16 percent), compared to 415,971 (31.07 percent) for McCormick. In the 24 hours between the mornings of May 17 and May 18, more than 20,000 votes were added to the totals. Propelled by mail-in ballots, McCormick gained about 1,500 votes.

Biden Regime Hires Michael Chertoff to Lead Disinformation Board

Biden Regime Hires Michael Chertoff to Lead Disinformation Board | 19 May 2022 | The Biden regime announced on Wednesday they hired Michael Chertoff, another Hunter Biden laptop truther, to lead the government's Disinformation Board. Chertoff has worked as an attorney at Covington & Burling. He is the co-author of the Patriot Act that allowed the federal government to spy on its citizens. Michael Chertoff was a board member of a website Alliance for Securing Democracy that claimed it was tracking Russian disinformation during the Trump years. Its real purpose is to smear websites supportive of Donald Trump and his accomplishments as Russian propaganda. Chertoff will be joined by Jamie Gorelik to lead the Ministry of Truth following the resignation of crackpot lounge singer Nina Jankowicz.

Analysis of Hunter Biden's hard drive shows he, his firm took in about $11 million from 2013 to 2018, spent it fast

Analysis of Hunter Biden's hard drive shows he, his firm took in about $11 million from 2013 to 2018, spent it fast | 19 May 2022 | From 2013 through 2018 Hunter Biden and his company brought in about $11 million via his roles as an attorney and a board member with a Ukrainian firm accused of bribery and his work with a Chinese businessman now accused of fraud, according to an NBC News analysis of a copy of Biden's hard drive and iCloud account and documents released by Republicans on two Senate committees. The documents and the analysis, which don't show what he did to earn millions from his Chinese partners, raise questions about national security, business ethics and potential legal exposure. In December 2020, Biden acknowledged in a statement that he was the subject of a federal investigation into his taxes. NBC News was first to report that an ex-business partner had warned Biden he should amend his tax returns to disclose $400,000 in income from the Ukrainian firm, Burisma. GOP congressional sources also say that if Republicans take back the House this fall, they'll demand more documents and probe whether any of Biden's income went to his father, Joe Biden.

U.S. Buys Millions of Monkeypox Vaccines, Which Were Already Made and Invoiced, After Massachusetts Man Is Infected

U.S. Buys Millions of Monkeypox Vaccines, Which Were Already Made and Invoiced, After Massachusetts Man Is Infected | 19 May 2022 | The U.S. government has ordered millions of doses of a vaccine that protects against monkeypox. The news follows the first confirmed case in the states -- a man in Massachusetts -- following an outbreak in the U.K. The order amounts to a $119 million order for Jynneos vaccines, which are used for the prevention of both smallpox and monkeypox. It was announced by biotechnology company Bavarian Nordic, which makes the vaccine, on Wednesday. The order will convert bulk vaccines, which have already been made and invoiced under previous contracts with the U.S. government, into freeze-dried versions which have an improved shelf-life. [Gee, already made and invoiced, just as there's an outbreak. Holy coincidence, Batman!]

The patient is being cared for with all isolation protocols in place at NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue. Epidemiologists are expected to follow up with any individual that may have been in contact with the patient while infectious, the health department said.

Louisiana Governor Reverses 'Insane Mandate' Requiring COVID Vaccines for Students

Louisiana Governor Reverses 'Insane Mandate' Requiring COVID Vaccines for Students | 19 May 2022 | Children and students attending daycare, K-12 programs and college in Louisiana, at least for now, will not be required to get the COVID-19 vaccine, Gov. John Bel Edwards announced Wednesday. The announcement reversed an earlier decision by the governor’s administration and the Louisiana Health Department (LHD) requiring students to be fully vaccinated beginning in the 2022-23 school year. Edwards said he based the decision on the fact that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not fully approved the vaccines for people under age 16.

Gas stations in Washington state resetting price boards to accommodate $10 per gallon --Several gas stations in the Evergreen State ran out of fuel. | 19 May 2022 | Gas stations in Washington state are resetting their price boards to accommodate double digits in preparation for fuel prices potentially reaching $10 per gallon. The move comes as several gas stations in the Evergreen State ran out of fuel. At the 76 gas station in Auburn, about 30 miles south of Seattle, gas pumps were reprogrammed so the display could indicate a price of at least $10 a gallon... Washingtonians are also having to contend with gas stations that are running out of fuel. Motorists who drive up to gas pumps in Kennewick, Pasco and West Richland are met with notes indicating that the station does not have any fuel to sell -- except diesel.

U.S. Plan to Amend International Health Regulations Could Hand Over More Power to WHO, Experts Warn

U.S. Plan to Amend International Health Regulations Could Hand Over More Power to WHO, Experts Warn | 19 May 2022 | The upcoming 75th World Health Assembly (WHA) to be held in Geneva from May 22 – 28 could adopt far-reaching amendments to the 2005 International Health Regulations (IHR). The IHR is the most important multilateral treaty regulating the global architecture for health emergency, preparedness, response and resilience (HEPR architecture). The extensive amendments to the IHR were initiated by the U.S., listed as agenda item WHA75/18 for the 75th WHA. The amendments are already backed by 19 co-sponsor states and the European Union (EU)... The proposed U.S. amendments to Article 12 IHR will both considerably extend the executive powers of the WHO Director-General to declare global emergency-like situations and centralize this power further by removing the need to consult and find agreement with the respective state party.

Senate Passes $40 Billion in Aid to Ukraine During 40-Year-High Inflation | 19 May 2022 | The Senate on Thursday passed legislation to give $40 billion to Ukraine in economic and military aid, while Americans suffer from food shortages and inflation. The Senate voted on H.R. 7691, the Ukraine Supplemental Aid Package, which passed 86-11. The vote featured strong Republican and Democrat support for the bill; however, some populist Senate Republicans opposed the legislation, believing that America should focus its efforts on domestic crises such as 40-year-high inflation and baby formula shortages. Sens. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), John Boozman (R-AR), Mike Crapo (R-ID), Bill Hagerty (R-TN), Josh Hawley (R-MO), Mike Lee (R-UT), Roger Marshall (R-KS), Cynthia Lummis (R-WY), Rand Paul (R-KY), Mike Braun (R-IN), and Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) voted against the bill.

'The Typhoid Mary of Disinformation': Nicolle Wallace. Nobody Spreads it More Relentlessly

'The Typhoid Mary of Disinformation': Nicolle Wallace. Nobody Spreads it More Relentlessly --From her days as Bush/Cheney propagandist, to her stint on The View, to her role as beloved-by-Democrats MSNBC host, Wallace has perfected the art of sociopathic lying. By Glenn Greenwald | 19 May 2022 | (Opinion) The most blatant and shameless liars from the first term of the Bush/Cheney administration have, revealingly, enjoyed great success in media and journalism... When the CIA wants the American public contaminated with its lies and disinformation, Nicolle Wallace's lips begin moving. She delivers the anonymous disinformation campaigns of the U.S. security state with a tone of empathy, compassion, and liberal elegance, all in the language and with the affectations which affluent liberals most admire. She has an unsurpassed ability to broadcast to audiences outright lies whispered to her by Deep State operatives -- one after the next -- without flinching or betraying the slightest sense of a conscience or moral compass. She lies like only a sociopath can: exuding charm and warmth yet utterly vacant on the inside, except for a soul festering in rot.

Russia moves to withdraw from WTO, WHO

Russia moves to withdraw from WTO, WHO --Proposals for ending membership in the international organizations have been sent to the parliament | 17 May 2022 | Russia's lower house of parliament, the State Duma, is planning to discuss the potential withdrawal of the country from the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the World Health Organization (WHO), according to Pyotr Tolstoy, the vice speaker of the parliament. "The Ministry of Foreign Affairs sent a list of such agreements to the State Duma, and together with the Federation Council [upper house of parliament] we are planning to evaluate them and then propose to withdraw from them," Tolstoy said on Tuesday. The vice speaker said that Russia had already canceled its membership in the Council of Europe, and that leaving the WTO and WHO is next. [The WHO and WTO are tyrannical cesspools of the globalists. Putin is smart to withdraw.]

DARPA for 'health': $500M-per-year disease research agency advances in House

DARPA for 'health': $500M-per-year disease research agency advances in House | 18 May 2022 | The House Energy and Commerce Committee overwhelmingly approved a bill to establish an independent high-risk, high-reward biomedical research division, the Advanced Research Projects Agency for Health, to pursue medical breakthroughs launch the next pandemic. In a rare show of bipartisanship, the committee voted 53-3 to advance the ARPA-H Act to the full House floor for a vote. The agency is a biomedical research version of the military's Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA, famed for its role in developing the internet and GPS. The "no" votes came from three Republican members: Billy Long of Missouri, Debbie Lesko of Arizona, and John Curtis of Utah. The bill, first introduced in October 2021 by Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-CA), would establish the standalone ARPA-H within the Department of Health and Human Services as outlined in Joe Biden's 2022 budget proposal.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Wasted $17M on Empty Hotel Rooms

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Wasted $17M on Empty Hotel Rooms | 18 May 2022 | Immigration and Customs Enforcement wasted $17 million on 1,200 largely unused hotel rooms to house migrant families, and hired a contractor that did not follow Covid-19 testing protocols, according to a new report from the Department of Homeland Security Inspector General. The report found "ICE did not adequately justify the need for the sole source contract to house migrant families" which resulted in "approximately $17 million for hotel spaces and services at six hotels that went largely unused" between April and June of 2021. Additionally, instead of soliciting bids to drive the price down, they simply signed an $87 million "sole source contract" with the contractor. The report also found that the contractor, Endeavors, didn't follow the department's Covid-19 testing protocols.

Pfizer Document Dump Shows Doctor With Ties to Gates Foundation Deleted Trial Participant's Vaccine Injury

Pfizer Document Dump Shows Doctor With Ties to Gates Foundation Deleted Trial Participant's Vaccine Injury | 18 May 2022 | An 80,000-page cache of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine documents released by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) sheds light on Pfizer's extensive vaccine trials in Argentina, including the unusually large size of the trials and the story of a trial participant whose vaccine reaction was "disappeared." The case of Augusto Roux in Argentina suggests that in at least one instance, a trial participant whose symptoms were determined to be connected to the COVID-19 vaccine was later listed, in official records, as having experienced adverse events that were not related to the vaccination. Vaccine trials in Argentina also appear to have glossed over adverse events suffered by other trial participants, and the potential connection between the adverse events and the vaccine.

NATO member blocks accession talks for Sweden and Finland – media

NATO member blocks accession talks for Sweden and Finland - media --Turkey has opposed the Nordic states' accession to the bloc, accusing the countries of supporting terrorist groups | 18 May 2022 | Turkey has blocked NATO accession talks with Finland and Sweden, several media outlets reported on Wednesday. Representatives of the military bloc's member states gathered seeking to open the negotiations just hours after both nations officially submitted their applications. However, Ankara has reportedly stopped the vote at the start of the talks. Earlier, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg had said that the first stage of negotiations on the two nations' applications could be concluded within one or two weeks. However, Turkey's resistance casts doubt on whether that was still possible.

Another NATO state wants to block Sweden and Finland from joining

Another NATO state wants to block Sweden and Finland from joining | 18 May 2022 | Croatian President Zoran Milanovic plans to instruct Ambassador Mario Nobilo, the country's permanent representative to NATO, to block the accession of Finland and Sweden to the decades-old military alliance, he said Wednesday. Refusing consent would turn the international community's attention to problems facing ethnic Croats in neighboring Bosnia and Herzegovina, Milanovic told reporters. Under the current election laws, Croat representatives tend to get elected with the votes of Bosnian Muslims, also known as Bosniaks. Zagreb is pushing to revise this. Stockholm and Helsinki formally broke with their history of neutrality on May 15 and applied for NATO membership. However, the acceptance of new countries to the bloc requires the unanimous consent of all members.

Just three states - Georgia, Kansas, and Oklahoma - hadn't crossed $4 a gallon on Monday, but they all saw jumps on Tuesday to hit that threshold. Kansas still has the cheapest gas in the nation at $4.006 a gallon, while California has the priciest at $6.021 a gallon.

An estimated $163 billion from pandemic unemployment benefits were misspent or stolen - report

An estimated $163 billion from pandemic unemployment benefits were misspent or stolen - report | 15 May 2022 | A sprawling community of victims have been caught up in a massive series of attacks targeting the nation's generous coronavirus aid programs. The more than $5 trillion approved since the start of the pandemic has become a wellspring for criminal activity, allowing fraudsters to siphon money away from hard-hit American workers and businesses who needed the help most. The exact scope of the fraud targeting federal aid initiatives is unknown, even two years later. With unemployment benefits, however, the theft could be significant. Testifying at a little-noticed congressional hearing this spring, a top watchdog for the Labor Department estimated there could have been "at least" $163 billion in unemployment-related "overpayments," a projection that includes wrongly paid sums as well as "significant" benefits obtained by malicious actors.

Turkey opposes Finland and Sweden's NATO bids - Erdogan

Turkey opposes Finland and Sweden's NATO bids - Erdogan | 16 May 2022 | Turkey will not say "yes" to Finland and Sweden's NATO membership bids, the country's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Monday, adding that any attempts to persuade Ankara to change its position would be fruitless. Both governments officially announced their intention to join the US-led military bloc this weekend. Turkey had previously warned that it might oppose the move, with Erdogan calling the two Nordic countries "guesthouses for terrorist organizations." He was referring to the separatist Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) and the Revolutionary People's Liberation Front (DHKP/C), which have been outlawed by Ankara.
