"Those who recognize the stupidity and fickleness of the masses will not be remotely surprised by anything they do." -- Nicolas Poussin
"The church must be reminded that it is not the master or the servant of the state, but rather the conscience of the state. It must be the guide and the critic of the state, and never its tool. If the church does not recapture its prophetic zeal, it will become an irrelevant social club without moral or spiritual authority." -- Martin Luther King Jr. (A Knock at Midnight, June 11, 1967)
Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky has issued a serious warning about the future of the Russian conflict after President Vladimir Putin’s missiles struck neighbouring Poland.
Two Polish residents were killed when suspected wayward missiles hit the village of Przewodow, with the strike marking the first time a nation outside of Ukraine has been directly affected by the war.
President Zelensky labelled the Russian strikes a “significant escalation” in President Putin’s illegal invasion and warned that if more countries did not join the fight against Russia, the desolation would spread.
Two Russian missiles hit the Polish town of Przewodów located near the border with Ukraine on Tuesday, killing two Poles according to reports. Poland is a NATO ally, and a staunch supporter of Ukraine as its neighbor defends itself from Russia’s invasion.
As the world edges closer to nuclear World War III over Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Joe Biden tersely refused a reporter’s question about the reported Russian missile strike on Poland Tuesday that killed two Poles in a farm town on the border with Ukraine.
After Dave Chappelle’s appearance on Saturday Night Live over the weekend, wherein he said Ye is right about the Jewish domination of the entertainment industry, Jonathan Greenblatt, head of the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith, called for Chappelle to be shut down.
The aggressive Jew Greenblatt claimed that Chappelle had hurt Jewish feelings by talking about Jewish political and cultural power, saying that hearing that Jews control Hollywood “traumatizes” Jewish people. Greenblatt demanded that more people care about the hurt feelings of the Jews.
More than 150 Chinese-born scientists who did U.S. taxpayer-funded military research at the fabled Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico are now back home working in China, in some cases, helping develop weapons.
A Black artist posted flyers that said “white only” and depicted a noose, saying they were part of a political act and marketing campaign for her new exhibition.
Images of the flyers, which have popped up in Boystown and Hyde Park in recent days, went viral online, with some speculating a hate group was to blame and others saying the image angered and upset them. Hyero, the artist behind the flyers, said she makes no apologies for her provocative marketing methods.
Hyero, 23, of the western suburbs, said the flyers are part of marketing for “YTs Only,” an art show at OMWP Studios, 2113 W. Armitage Ave. The show opens 7 p.m. Friday and runs throughout the weekend.
We are living in the era of the collapse of Western civilization. In a few years there will be nothing left of Western civilization in England and Europe. The English already have a Hindu Indian as prime minister and a Pakistani as mayor of their capital city, London. Only mosque, not Christian churches, are being built in Europe.
During his previous terms in office, Benjamin Netanyahu oversaw some of the most brutal attacks on Gaza, attacks that caused thousands of civilian casualties. He was also indicted on corruption charges, and yet enough Israelis found him suitable to return to the post of Prime Minister, and he was elected with a comfortable majority.
In the United States, Netanyahu is respected in spite of his 2002 appearance in the U.S. House of Representatives saying that, “If you take out Saddam’s regime, I guarantee you that it will have enormous positive reverberations on the region.” The Iraq War cost countless lives and billions of dollars and caused disastrous reverberations in the region.
KAHANE DISCIPLES IN POWER
What is most disturbing is that Netanyahu owes his return to power to the students of the racist, Arab-hating thug Meir Kahane. Kahane founded the Jewish Defense League, which the FBI designated a terrorist organization. Kahane preached for the forced transfer of most of the Arabs from Palestine and the creation of Jewish only beaches, schools and towns. Much of what he preached is already reality in the state of Israel, but the brashness of his discourse was too much, even for Israelis.
Kahane was elected to the Knesset in 1984, but he was completely shunned, and even though there was a right wing government in place at the time, he had no chance whatsoever of getting a seat at the table. A government post for him could not have even been considered. Fast-forward to 2022 and the very disciples of Kahane – not only ideologically but actual disciples – are not running the tables. Itamar Ben-Gvir who studied at Kahane’s yeshiva in Jerusalem (yes, Kahane had a yeshiva in Jerusalem where he taught hate and violence to young Israeli Jews) is a racist thug who enjoys tremendous popularity among the country’s youth, is going to be a major part of the next Israeli government.
Starvation works. At the end of the day, famine decided the outcome of the Ethiopian civil war. Two years after the outbreak of hostilities, Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed and Eritrean President Isaias Afewerki forced the Tigrayan leadership to forsake their political claims and instead negotiate to save their people from famine.
Two agreements were signed, one in Pretoria, South Africa, on November 2 and the second in Nairobi, Kenya on November 12. They are poorly drafted and riddled with ambiguity, reflecting the rush. But the bottom line is that the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) has accepted to dismantle the regional Government of Tigray, which it headed, and to disarm the Tigray Defense Force (TDF), in return for ending the fighting, receiving humanitarian aid and the removal of “foreign forces” — understood to mean the Eritreans.
Stories about outrageously woke things going on at colleges and universities have become a distressingly common feature of the news.
Fox News reports on one of the most recent stories coming out of Gettysburg College, a liberal arts institution next to the famous battlefield.
“Gettysburg College has postponed a painting and writing event hosted by its Gender Sexuality and Resource Center for people who are “Tired of White cis men.”
“The private Pennsylvania college offered the event as part of a peace and justice, or ‘P&J,’ senior project, but has since postponed it after it was shared online.
“The event, originally scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 12, told people to ‘come paint and write about how they are tired of straight, White men. “The pieces from the event would then be displayed in the school’s dining hall for the campus to view.”
The condition — known outside of high-level politics as “severe mental decline” — was first spotted on the presidential campaign trail in 2019, when Joe Biden, then best known for being a former vice president and serial fabulist, routinely gaffed in ways no man who wanted to occupy the Oval Office had ever gaffed before.
This didn’t dissuade the Democrats from handing him the baton, even when stuff like this would routinely drop out of his wrinkled maw:
Now that Biden is president, things are getting worse — and not just for him, but his entire party.
In Pennsylvania, Democrats still got behind now-Sen.-elect John Fetterman, a man who was propped up by his campaign staff despite the fact a stroke he suffered just before the party primary left him unable to convey a single thought on the campaign trail without substantial difficulty. That didn’t bother leftists any, so long as they got the seat.
An eco-terrorist cult that calls itself Letzte Generation Österreich (Last Generation Austria) filmed an attack by cult members on a painting in the Leopold Museum in Vienna on Tuesday in protest of life-saving fossil fuels.
On November 15, at about 3 pm local time, an air alert sounded throughout Ukraine. The explosions were reported in almost all regions and cities of the country. Immediately after the attacks, power outages and interruptions of public transport began.
Emergency power outages continue in all regions of the country. Zelensky claimed that Russia fired 90 missiles at the territory of Ukraine, as a result of which the country’s energy system was hit. According to the deputy head of the office, Kirill Tymoshenko, more than 90 missiles were fired at Ukraine, while Ukrainian air defense allegedly shot down 70 of them. In total, 15 energy infrastructure facilities were damaged.
More than 7 million consumers were left without electricity, this is about 20 million people, said Deputy head of the presidential office Kirill Tymoshenko said.
On 14 November 2022, the Cooperative Security Division of the International Military Staff (IMS) welcomed a group of Ukrainian cadets to NATO Headquarters for briefings on NATO-Ukrainian military cooperation. The cadets were officially welcomed by the Chair of the NATO Military Committee, Admiral Rob Bauer.
Welcoming the cadets, Admiral Bauer voiced his admiration for the Ukrainian Armed Forces….
For the last 25 years, NATO has been committed to its partnership with Ukraine, providing training…and encouraging interoperability. Since the start of the Ukrainian war, NATO Allies and Partners have stepped up their practical support….“Today, 50 Nations are supporting Ukraine with lethal, non-lethal and financial aid. NATO Allies are supplying advanced systems, including artillery, air defence, and armoured vehicles; mobile satellite communications systems….Our support shall remain unwavering and will last as long as it is needed”, underlined Admiral Bauer.
Exercise Falcon Strike 2022 – an Italian Air Force training exercise which focuses on fifth and fourth-generation integration between NATO Allies operating the advanced F-35A Lightning II stealth fighter – kicked off today, continuing through Nov. 28, at Italy’s Amendola Air Base.
U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa has routinely supported the annual exercise, which, for the first time, will incorporate the 48th Fighter Wing’s F-35 aircraft from the 495th “Valkyries” Fighter Squadron, the first organically available fifth-generation assets within U.S. European Command’s area of responsibility. RAF Lakenheath continually supports training and operations across the theater since their F-35s initial arrival in December 2021.
Aviano Air Base’s 31st Fighter Wing will also support the exercise from the 555th “Triple Nickel” Fighter Squadron flying the F-16 Fighting Falcon, which will support fourth-generation fighter air warfare training.
Prior to the pandemic, only to two or three percent of all Americans were preppers. Now, that number has soared to about 10 percent. While the fear brought about by the pandemic has passed, most people’s eyes were opened to the importance of preparedness when SHTF.
Prepper John Ramey, who runs a website for preppers called The Prepared, believes that around 15 million Americans are actively preparing for the worst. “Broadly speaking, more and more people [are] realizing that they are their own first responder,” he said. (Related: Thanks to covid, prepping has gone mainstream.)
Question: How can you tell who is a prepper?
Answer: They are the ones NOT eating out of trash dumpsters after a disaster!
Southeast Asia is right at the center of international relations for a whole week viz a viz three consecutive summits: Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) summit in Phnom Penh, the Group of Twenty (G20) summit in Bali, and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Bangkok.
Eighteen nations accounting for roughly half of the global economy represented at the first in-person ASEAN summit since the Covid-19 pandemic in Cambodia: the ASEAN 10, Japan, South Korea, China, India, US, Russia, Australia, and New Zealand.
With characteristic Asian politeness, the summit chair, Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen (or “Colombian”, according to the so-called “leader of the free world”), said the plenary meeting was somewhat heated, but the atmosphere was not tense: “Leaders talked in a mature way, no one left.”
It was up to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov to express what was really significant at the end of the summit.
While praising the “inclusive, open, equal structure of security and cooperation at ASEAN”, Lavrov stressed how Europe and NATO “want to militarize the region in order to contain Russia and China’s interests in the Indo-Pacific.”
Political commentators are crying fraud after vote tallies show more people voted for the Republican candidate in Arizona’s Treasurer race than voted for the GOP candidate in the state governor’s race.
The bizarre discrepancy can be observed in official vote tallies from the New York Times, which receives its election results from the Associated Press.
Evidently, according to vote totals, Republican incumbent Kimberly Yee received 1.37 million votes, securing her the state Treasurer’s seat against Democrat opponent Martin Quezada by over 278,000 votes.
Bizarrely, however, the same enthusiasm for the GOP was not seen in the state’s hotly contested governor’s race, where Arizona’s top election official Katie Hobbs managed to squeak out a Democrat victory against GOP rival Kari Lake. Hobbs won by 19,273 votes against Lake.
Whereas Yee received 1.37 million votes in her race, Lake curiously only managed to receive around 1.25 million, a discrepancy of close to 120,000 votes.
The discrepancy in vote totals set off alarm bells for pundits on social media, who rightfully questioned why more voters would vote Republican in a lower-profile election like the treasurer’s race than the closely-watched governor’s race.
