Israeli Violence Against Palestinian Protesters in Occupied Jerusalem

 April 25, 2021

Time and again, when Palestinians protest legitimately against Jewish state viciousness, Israeli soldiers and other security forces attack them with live fire, rubber-coated steel bullets, toxic tear gas, and other repressive tactics.

For 11 straight nights, Palestinian residents of Israeli Occupied Jerusalem rallied against assaults and other provocations by police, extremist settlers, and likeminded far-right Jewish hooligans.

According to the Palestine News & Information Agency (WAFA) on Saturday:

“The Jerusalem uprising… expanded to reach the West Bank and Gaza.”

Over 100 Palestinians were injured, nearly two dozen hospitalized, the Palestinian Red Crescent reported. 

WAFA said Saturday night clashes were “in support of the Jerusalem uprising and against Israeli treatment of Palestinians in the holy city.”

What’s going on began on the first day of Ramadan after “Israeli police cut off wires to loudspeakers at Al-Aqsa Mosque minarets in Jerusalem to prevent the call for prayer that alert people to the start and end of the fast as well as the time for prayers,” adding:

For the past 11 nights, “police harassed Jerusalem residents leaving Al-Aqsa Mosque” — Islam’s third holiest site after Mecca’s Sacred Mosque and the Mosque of the Prophet in Madina.

Two nights ago, extremist “Israeli members of the Lahava terror group that advocates killing Palestinians in Jerusalem and taking over their homes joined the police in attacking the city’s Palestinian residents.”

During the weekend, Arab-hating settlers “attacked Palestinian homes and property in Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, throwing rocks and Molotov cocktails at homes and cars.”

Israeli police and other security forces do nothing to deter them when these incidents happen.

Since the Jerusalem uprising began, “Israeli police (permitted) intrusions” by extremist Jews into the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound.

They’re “allow(ed) to hold rituals in violation of the status quo and the sanctity of the holy site as a Muslim-only worship area, provoking strong reaction from people and countries, such as Jordan, the official custodian over the Muslim and Christian holy places in occupied East Jerusalem,” WAFA explained.

Extremist Jews marched from Jerusalem’s Zion Square to the Old City, chanting: “Death to Arabs.”

In parts of the city, police set up checkpoints, closing off areas to prevent Palestinians from observing traditional Ramadan activities, including prayer at the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Over the weekend, Israeli warplanes and ground forces terror-bombed and shelled Gaza in response to Strip support for abused Palestinians in Jerusalem.

The city is the epicenter of longstanding struggle. 

Israeli Jews consider it their capital, a national and religious center. 

For Christians, it’s where Jesus lived and died, and for Muslims, it’s home to the sacred Al-Aqsa Mosque.

In June 1967, Israel illegally occupied the city. 

On July 30, 1980, the Knesset introduced the Jerusalem Law, officially annexing it as Israel’s unified capital.

On March 1, 1980, Security Council Resolution 465 declared that “all measures taken by Israel to change the physical character, demographic composition, institutional structure or status of the Palestinian and other Arab territories occupied since 1967, including Jerusalem, or any part thereof, have no legal validity and that Israel’s policy and practices of settling parts of its population and new immigrants in those territories constitute a flagrant (Fourth Geneva) violation.”

These actions also “constitute a serious obstruction to achieving a comprehensive, just and lasting peace in the Middle East.”

On July 4, 2004, the International Court of Justice (ICC) ruled that “Israeli settlements in the Occupied Territory, including East Jerusalem, are illegal and an obstacle to peace and to economic and social development (and) have been established in breach of international law.”

Nothing changed. Like the US and other Western countries, Israel operates exclusively by its own rules.

Illegal settlements continue expanding exponentially on stolen Palestinian land.

Israel wants territory from Jordan’s border to the Mediterranean Sea developed for exclusive Jewish use.

Note: Separately on Saturday, scores of Israeli Peace Now activists rallied against police violence and rights of Arab Jerusalem residents, the group’s head Shaqued Morag, saying:

“We want to send a message both to the (Netanyahu regime) and to our Palestinian neighbors that we won’t stay silent in front of the violence and the incitement and the racism.” 

“We will defend the right of everybody to live in Jerusalem peacefully.”

For his part, Netanyahu warned that his regime is “prepared for all scenarios” —suggesting that if protests continue, so will police state violence.

Bashing Russia for US-Orchestrated Ukraine Aggression

April 18, 2021

By Stephen Lendman

All the news that’s fit to print is banned in NYT editions — state-approved reinvented reality featured instead.

Since the Obama/Biden regime installed Nazism in Ukraine over seven years ago, US-orchestrated intermittent war raged against Donbass by puppet regime conscripts.

Since February, things dangerously escalated.

On Friday, Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) Militia Deputy Chief of Staff Eduard Basurin said the following:

Ukrainian fighters violated the Additional Measures to Strengthen the Ceasefire 36 times over the past week.” 

They used US/Western-supplied mortars, IFVs, anti-aircraft guns, and grenade launchers to target 16 DPR townships.

Last July, Additional Measures to Strengthen the Ceasefire were signed at a Contact Group meeting — to reinforce and control the indefinite ceasefire in effect since July 21, 2019.

Attempts to resolve years of conflict since 2014 by Russia, the DPR and  LPR (Lugansk) People’s Republic failed because US-controlled Ukraine wants endless war, not restoration of peace and stability.

Since US-orchestrated aggression by Kiev forces on Donbass began escalating in February, the NYT and other establishment media falsely blamed Russian forces for crimes of war, against humanity, and related rule of law breaches by Ukrainian conscripts.

On Friday, the Times turned truth on its head by falsely claiming that Russian forces in their own territory threaten Ukraine.

So-called Donbass (DPR and LPR) separatists refuse to live under the scourge of US-installed fascist tyranny — nor should any one.

On all things Russia — and other nations free from US control — the Times and other establishment media invent their own falsified reality, based on state-supplied talking points.

No Russian buildup in its own territory threatens cross-border attacks.

No Russian US election meddling or cyberattacks occurred — what Washington and its imperial allies repeatedly inflict on targeted nations, along with endless wars by hot and/or other means, the highest of high crimes on nonbelligerent states threatening no one.

No annexation of Crimea occurred, no Russian disinformation — a longstanding Times speciality.

A litany of bald-faced Big Lies defines all its reports on Russia and other independent nations, hard truths suppressed.

No Russian show of force cross-border threat exists.

The US is frustrated because for over a century, Russia remains proudly independent of US imperial control.

Except for the aberrational 1990s, Russia hasn’t and isn’t about to roll over for any foreign power, clearly not imperial USA — at war on humanity at home and abroad.

Moscow aims to restore peace and stability to Europe’s heartland — polar opposite US rage for endless wars worldwide.

Russia isn’t pressuring Ukraine or any other countries.

In stark contrast, the US pressures, bullies, bribes and smashes other nations into compliance with its hegemonic will.

What works at times against some easy-to-roll-over weak nations fails against Russia, China, Iran and other sovereign states that won’t sell their soul to a higher power anywhere outside their borders.

The Times and other establishment media long ago abandoned journalism as it should be — operating instead as a collective mouthpiece for wealth, power and privilege.

Lies, Big Lies, mass deception, and state-approved propaganda is what they do, truth and full disclosure banished on issues mattering most.

Large-Scale Covid Outbreaks in Michigan: The NYT Suppresses. Why?

About me - Stephen Lendman

By Stephen Lendman

According to the Times, (seasonal flu-renamed covid) outbreaks rose sharply in Michigan in greater numbers than elsewhere nationwide.

Instead of earlier lockdowns that caused infinitely greater harm than any combination of serious diseases, Governor Gretchen Whitmer chose not to once again mandate draconian measures ordered earlier, saying:

“Policy change alone won’t change the tide,” adding:

“We need everyone to step up and to take personal responsibility here.”

Instead of truth and full disclosure, the Times falsely said there’s “no single reason Michigan has been hit so hard in recent weeks (sic),” adding:

“Recent infections suggest that (removing restrictions to) social gatherings (are) driving case increases (sic).

“Children are also accounting for a higher percentage of cases, with spring break trips and youth sporting events emerging as points of concern.”

The main, perhaps only, reason for increased outbreaks in the state has nothing to do with the above claims.

Independent medical professionals and scientists unconnected to government and/or Pharma know that vaxxing and covid jabs increase numbers of diseases they’re supposed to protect against but don’t.

Outbreaks of seasonal flu now called covid are greatly increasing in Michigan because the state leads the nation in complying with mass-jabbing with experimental covid drugs that don’t protect and risk possible irreversible harm to health when taken as directed.

Defying reality Michigan Health and Human Services Department spokeswoman Lynn Sutfin falsely claimed that many new covid outbreaks may be from viral infections before individuals were jabbed, adding:

“These cases are undergoing further review to determine if they meet other CDC criteria for determination of potential breakthrough, including the absence of a positive antigen or (meaningless) PCR test less than 45 days prior to the post-vaccination positive test (sic).” 

“(T)hese persons have been more likely to be asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic compared with vaccinated persons (sic).”

The above is pseudo-science analysis, not the real thing.

Increasing numbers of covid outbreaks in Michigan are directly related to large-scale mass-jabbing.

They don’t protect, risk serious harm to health, and increase the chance of contracting seasonal flu now called covid.

Everything recommended or mandated in the US and West is harmful to health, not the other way around.

It’s no surprise that Michigan leads the nation in covid mass-jabbing compliance and percent of its population contracting the viral disease.

The way to reduce outbreaks and help state residents overall is by halting covid jabs entirely and restoring normality as existed pre-2020.

Instead, Whitmer called for voluntary compliance with greatly restricted public activities, continued mask-wearing, social distancing, and use of PCR tests not designed to diagnose viral infections so don’t work as falsely claimed.

She also wants greater mass-jabbing with harmful drugs, calling on the Biden regime to supply what’ll increase outbreaks, not reduce them.

She claimed that Washington has a covid strategy and it’s “working (sic).”

She’s right. The strategy is all about harming public health and sustaining protracted Main Street Depression so privileged interests can benefit from what’s harming most people.

The newest toxic drug to join the mass-covid jabbing sweepstakes for maximum profits at the expense of human health is causing large numbers of adverse events, including deaths.

According to Health Impact News, Colorado and North Carolina suspended mass-jabbing with J & J’s experimental covid vaccine because of disturbing numbers of blood clots and other adverse events.

On Friday, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) said it’s investigating numbers of blood clots following jabs with J & J’s high-risk experimental covid vaccine.

Through April 1, reported numbers of US adverse events from covid jabs totalled nearly 57,000, along with almost 2,800 deaths.

The EMA reported nearly 239,000 injuries and almost 5,400 deaths.

The above figures are a minute snapshot of far greater numbers of harmed individuals in the West from toxic covid drugs no one should touch — covering nearly a four-month period since December.

Yet Western governments and their media press agents continue urging everyone to be jabbed with what won’t protect and may irreversibly harm health.

Step one to protect what’s too precious to lose is halting covid jabbing altogether.

Step two is removing all covid related mandates, fully restoring free and open access to public places.

As long as mass-jabbing continues and restrictions prevent restoration of normality, conditions will worsen, not improve.

That’s what diabolical dark forces in Washington and elsewhere in the West intend — while pretending otherwise.

Going along with them risks far greater harm to public health and well-being than already — including exponentially greater numbers of adverse events and deaths.

US Phony War on ISIS and Other Jihadist Groups it Created and Supports

April 4, 2021

By Stephen Lendman

ISIS, al-Qaeda, its al-Nusra spinoffs, and likeminded jihadist groups are US created and supported monsters.

They’re used by the Pentagon and CIA as proxy foot soldiers to advance diabolical US imperial interests.

Recruited, armed, funded, trained and directed, they’re deployed by US dark forces to Syria, Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, Yemen and elsewhere to commit atrocities that include CW attacks on defenseless civilians —wrongfully blamed on governments Washington wants replaced by pro-Western puppet regimes it controls.

The US replenishes the ranks of these groups with new recruits.

There’s no shortage of them around in the Middle East, Central Asia, North Africa, as well as in the Indo/Pacific and elsewhere.

Time and again, US officials perpetuate the myth of wanting these elements eliminated — while seeking new recruits to replace ones killed in battle by Russian airpower and militaries of targeted nations.

Serial liar Trump defied reality, falsely claiming his regime eliminated “100% of the caliphate…in Iraq and Syria (sic).”

In January 2020, Iranian Quds Force commander General Qassem Soleimani and Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) deputy head Hashed Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis were martyred by Pentagon assassins for successfully combatting the scourge of US supported ISIS. 

According to Pentagon connected Military.com and Navy Times propaganda on Friday, the USS USS Dwight D. Eisenhower carrier strike group began so-called Operation Inherent Resolve flight operations against ISIS in Syria and Iraq (sic).

Throughout US post-9/11 Middle East, Central Asia, and North Africa wars of aggression against invented enemies, US air, ground and naval operations supported and continue supporting ISIS and likeminded jihadist groups.

It’s what the Eisenhower strike group and US 6th fleet are engaged in now.

Their operations have nothing to do with “provid(ing) a wide range of options to our nation and allies in deterring adversarial aggression and disruption of maritime security and regional stability” — as a navy press release falsely claimed.

Ongoing operations are all about advancing US imperial interests by waging endless preemptive wars on invented enemies.

In Syria, Russian and Assad government aerial operations alone are combatting the scourge of US supported ISIS and other jihadist groups.

Days earlier, Russia’s Sergey Lavrov said US ruling regimes use ISIS and likeminded jihadists to prevent conflict resolution in Syria.

Days earlier, the Pentagon and CIA reportedly transported dozens of ISIS fighters to locations in Syria where they want them used to attack government forces and civilians.

While government troops — greatly aided by Russian airpower — liberated most Syrian territory, US and Turkish forces illegally occupy northern parts of the country.

The Pentagon and CIA infest parts of its south, and pockets of ISIS jihadists show up wherever their US handlers deploy them.

US supported Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, an al-Qaeda offshoot, operates in Syria’s Idlib province.

Southfront called HTS “a brutal, radical terrorist group,” adding:

A leaked video showed the group “training children for combat in Greater Idlib.”

Aiding its ruthlessness, US Public Broadcasting (PBS), one of its many propaganda arms, interviewed HTS leader Abu Mohamad al-Julani.

Giving him air time on US national television showed virtual PBS support for the jihadist group in cahoots with the Biden regime.

US hot wars rage endlessly in multiple theaters, using ISIS and other jihadist proxies.

Phony US claims about military operations against ISIS and other jihadists divert attention from its support for these cutthroat killers.

China Slaps Biden Regime with Taste of its Own Medicine

By Stephen Lendman

Handing imperial USA a taste of its own toxic medicine is long overdue.

China partly delivered with hopefully much more of the same to come.

On Saturday, Beijing sanctioned a short list of US and Canadian officials in response to unacceptable “moves (by their ruling regimes) of imposing unilateral, disinformation-based sanctions on relevant individuals and entity in China’s Xinjiang,” Xinhua reported.

Beijing’s announcement said targeted US and Canadian officials “are prohibited from entering the mainland, Hong Kong and Macao…and Chinese citizens and institutions are prohibited from doing business with the relevant individuals and having exchanges with the relevant entity,” adding:

US and Canadian ruling regimes “must stop political manipulation on Xinjiang-related issues, stop interfering in China’s internal affairs in any form, and refrain from going further down the wrong path.” 

“Otherwise, they will get their fingers burnt.”

Separately in China’s report on US human rights abuses — released last week —  the State Council Information Office of China slammed US covid related assaults on ordinary Americans, its fantasy democracy, social unrest, widening divide between rich and most others, and its trampling on the rule of law.

Under both right wings of its war party, the US is a world leader in smashing other countries to advance its imperial interests.

It serves privileged interests exclusively at home at the expense of most others.

It’s an unparalleled global menace.

Under selected, not elected, figurehead president Biden, hardliners around him handle affairs of state because he’s too cognitively and physically deteriorated to handle them on his own.

The self-styled “beacon of democracy” model for other nations to emulate is a laughing stock on the world stage.

It’s “exceptional” only in waging war on humanity worldwide.

In short order, the Biden regime showed it’s vying to exceed the worst horrors of its predecessors at home and abroad.

Its hostility toward China, Russia, Iran and other nations free from US control risks igniting global war 3.0.

China’s official People’s Daily broadsheet slammed the US and other Western regimes for “fabricating lies and spreading rumors about Xinjiang affairs…”

What’s going on is all about wanting China’s development contained and undermined.

“Xinjiang-related issues are not human rights issues at all.” 

They’re all “about countering violent terrorism, radicalization and separatism.” 

“There have never been such things as ‘genocide, forced labor or religious oppression’ in the autonomous region.”

Phony claims otherwise by the US and West are bald-faced Big Lies.

Over the past 40 years, Xinjiang’s population more than doubled from 5.5 to 12 million.

In the last 60 years, the region’s GDP surged more than 200-fold.

Over the same timeframe, life expectancy rose from “30 to 72 years.”

“The region is experiencing its most auspicious period of development ever in history, with sustained social stability, people living in peace and contentment, as well as unity among all ethnic groups.” 

“Basic rights of the residents, including the rights to life, health and development are guaranteed. These are undeniable facts.”

“In recent years, a total of more than 1,200 diplomats, officials of international organizations, journalists and religious personnel from over 100 countries have visited Xinjiang and seen the region with their eyes.”

“What they witnessed was entirely different from” Western misinformation, disinformation and fake news. 

Vicious US-led Western Big Lies are used as a phony pretext to sanction China.

On Saturday, Beijing retaliated. The previous day, it slammed Britain for sanctioning its officials — based on phony accusations of human rights abuses.

China’s Foreign Ministry slammed the Boris Johnson regime for sanctioning Chinese officials and entities based on Big “(L)ies and false information.”

China’s charge d’affaires in London Yang Xiaoguang warned of further retaliation if Britain continues “going down the wrong path,” adding:

“The Chinese side never stirs up trouble, but we are not afraid of trouble.” 

“We hope that the UK side will immediately take effective measures to correct its wrongs and take concrete steps to foster favorable conditions for the healthy development of China-UK relations.”

It’s not coming from Britain, the US or other Western countries.

Beijing knows what it’s up against and is ready to respond as needed.

The (London) Sunday Times reported that the Biden and Johnson regimes aim to cobble together an anti-China coalition to counter Beijing’s Belt and Road initiative.

According to Johnson’s reinvention of reality, China is “buying up great parts of the developing world” in Africa and elsewhere (sic), adding:

“We need to come up with an alternative so that countries have a choice. The West needs to do this.”

In sharp contrast to US-led Western exploitation of other nations and their people, China fosters cooperative relations.

Days earlier, the Johnson regime said Britain considers Russia a “hostile state (sic).”

It calls China a commercial “competitor.”

In response to its retaliatory sanctions on the US, interventionist Blinken said the following on Saturday:

The Biden regime “condemns…baseless (PRC) sanctions (sic).”

At the same time, Blinken repeated US-spread Big Lies about “human rights abuses in Xinjiang” that don’t exist.

The above remarks show that the US reserves the right to attack other countries by hot and/or other means — while crying foul in response to justifiable retaliation.

The US is by far the leading human rights offender worldwide, including abuses against ordinary Americans.

Nations free from its imperial control operate by higher standards — including respect for international law the US and its imperial partners long ago abandoned. 

According deputy director of the National Human Rights Education and Training Base of Southwest University of Political Science and Law Zhu Ying:

Beijing is considering imposition of further sanctions on hostile to its interests Western nations and their officials.

On Saturday, China’s Foreign Ministry said its “government is firmly determined to safeguard its national sovereignty, security and development interests, and urges the relevant parties to clearly understand the situation and redress their mistakes.”

Dismal Sino/Western relations are likely to worsen ahead, not improve.

Authorities in Beijing are prepared to counter Western actions that are hostile to its interests.

Frosty Sino/US Talks: Day Two

By Stephen Lendman

Two days of Sino/US talks in Anchorage, Alaska were a waste of time for Beijing, accomplishing nothing positive as expected.

China and other nations know what they’re up against in dealing with hegemon USA, a wrecking ball on the world stage — including at home against ordinary Americans, exploited, not served.

It’s at a time of Main Street Depression with nearly 26% of working-age Americans unemployed.

No badly needed government jobs creation program exists at a time of widespread food insecurity, unaffordable healthcare for millions of households, and sharply rising inflation — especially for food, healthcare and energy.

Year-over-year, CPI inflation increased 9.4%, economist John Williams explained. Phony official numbers conceal reality.

Most US households are increasingly hard-pressed to make ends meet with prices rising much faster than income.

Geopolitically, US relations with China and other nations free from its control are confrontational.

Far removed from cooperative, dominant US hardliners abhor the notion with other nations, especially sovereign independent China, Russia, and Iran.

From Anchorage on Friday, interventionist Blinken said the following:

“(T)here are a number of areas where we are fundamentally at odds, including China’s actions in Xinjiang (sic), with regard to Hong Kong (sic), Tibet (sic), Taiwan (sic), as well as actions that it’s taken in cyberspace (sic).

What national security advisor Sullivan separately called “advancing the interests and values of America” are all about bludgeoning, bullying, threatening, bribing, and smashing other nations to control them.

Commenting on bilateral talks on Thursday and Friday, China’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said the following:

“The US side…provoked disagreements (with) fiery and theatrical (remarks), which is not what China wishe(d) to see,” adding:

“The Chinese delegation (came) to Anchorage with full sincerity and a constructive attitude.”

On arrival, “their hearts were chilled by the biting cold as well as the (cold) reception by their American host.”

Time and again, the US illegally interferes in the internal affairs of other countries.

A flagrant UN Charter breach, China justifiably rejects hostile US actions.

Calling the US side “confrontational” in Anchorage, Zhao slammed its “wanton attacks” and unacceptable “diplomatic etiquette.”

According to China’s Central Committee official/Foreign Affairs Director Yang Jiechi:

“The US has no competence whatsoever to take a patronizing tone with China.”

“It won’t work on us. We need to communicate based on mutual respect. If the US tries to grab us by the throat, it will harm its own interests.”

According to China Central Television (CCTV) on Saturday, citing Beijing’s delegation in Anchorage, both countries will continue high-level “dialogue and contacts” ahead.

The Chinese delegation called on the Biden regime to cease interfering in its internal affairs and lift illegally imposed sanctions on the nation and its officials.

“If the US continues its (hostile) policy, China will make a decisive response.”

In response to wrecking ball Trump regime policies, “China was forced to take relevant and necessary measures to protect its sovereignty, security, and development interests.”

It will react in similar fashion if hardliners in charge of Biden’s foreign policy continue their predecessors’ war on China by other means.

Western media reports on two days of bilateral talks said the following:

The NYT: Sino/US talks showed “a widening gulf of distrust and disagreements on a range of issues” and no breakthroughs.

WaPo: Biden regime hardliners have an “appetite for high-profile fights with China and Russia.”

WSJ: “Bitter Alaska Meeting (further) complicates already shaky US/China ties.”

Financial Times: The US and China “ended their first high-level meeting on Friday after two days of talks in Alaska that produced an extraordinary public spat and no sign of improved relations.”

Bloomberg News: Both countries “end(ed) contentious Alaska meeting with little to show” from two days of talks.

Politico called their talks an “undiplomatic war of words.”

AP News said both countries “spar(red) in their first face-to-face meeting” since Biden replaced Trump.

According to Reuters, “(t)ough (Sino/US) talks signal rocky start to (bilateral) relations” — likely to worsen ahead, not improve.

Singapore-based Channel News Asia reported the following:

“Top US and Chinese officials wrapped up two days of contentious talks in Alaska on Friday after trading sharp and unusually public barbs over vastly different views of each other and the world in their first face-to-face meeting since” Biden took office.

The South China Morning Post (SCMP) asked:

“Is US-China friction at Alaska meetings a sign of worse to come or start of something better?”

There’s been nothing “better” since Trump’s trade war began.

Biden regime Chinaphobes may harden US war on the country other means instead going the other way.

China’s Global Times said Beijing’s delegation in Alaska showed “strength, indicating to the US that China’s development and growth cannot be stopped.” 

“China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity are main issues of principle.”

China’s official People’s Daily broadsheet said the US side “had better quit political threatening.”

It slammed US “hegemony and interventionism…(its) vicious intention…to disrupt Hong Kong and hinder China’s stability and development.”

“Wielding the big stick of sanctions” accomplishes nothing with China. 

Calling them “nothing but a piece of useless paper,” they’re hostile breaches of international law when imposed, adding:

“(A)arbitrary sanctions…by the US on other sovereignty countries have already triggered unanimous opposition and condemnation from the international society.”

“Being ignorant to justice and wielding the big stick of sanctions, the US will only once again expose its hypocrisy and hegemony.”

“China is firm in its determination to” defend its sovereignty and territorial integrity against hostile actions by hegemon USA.

Hell on Earth Exists

By Stephen Lendman

Made in the USA, assisted by its imperial partners, hell exists in raped and destroyed nations by US-led aggression.

It’s worst of all in ravaged Yemen since October 2001, a nation under attack by the US and complicit aggressors for nearly two decades without let-up.

According to World Food Program executive director David Beasley in remarks to Security Council members last week:

“Just two days ago, I was in Yemen, where over 16 million people now face crisis levels of hunger or worse.” 

“These aren’t just numbers. These are real people.” 

“And we are headed straight toward the biggest famine in modern history.” 

“It is hell on earth in many places in Yemen right now.”

“Around 400,000 children may die in Yemen this year without urgent intervention.” 

“That is roughly one child every 75 seconds.” 

“So, while we’re sitting here, every minute and a quarter, a child is dying.”

“Are we really going to turn our backs on them and look the other way?”

“To add to all their misery, the innocent people of Yemen have to deal with a fuel blockade.”

“(M)ost hospitals (still operating) only have electricity in their intensive care units because fuel reserves are so low.” 

“I know this first-hand because I’ve walked in the hospital.” 

“And the lights were off. The electricity was off.” 

“The people of Yemen deserve our help. That blockade must be lifted, as a humanitarian act.” 

“Otherwise, millions more will spiral into crisis.”

“Man made conflict is driving instability and powering a destructive new wave of famine that threatens to sweep across the world.” 

“The toll being paid in human misery is unimaginable.” 

“These looming famines have two things in common: they are primarily driven by conflict, and they are entirely preventable.”

“The cycle of violence, hunger and despair pulls in more and more individuals and families as the weeks and months pass.” 

“But the potential consequences are truly global: economic deterioration, destabilization, mass migration and starvation.”

“Beyond the immediate crisis, we also need to invest in peace, so that in the future, desperate families are not forced to the brink of survival by the bullet and the bomb.” 

“The costs of this violence are immense: just in 2019 $14.5 trillion dollars a year – 15 percent of global GDP.” 

“It would take a fraction of this money to fund the development programs that could transform the lives of people in fragile, conflict-scarred nations – and help lay new pathways to peace.”

Beasley added that he earlier warned that famines “of biblical proportions” are happpening in over three dozen countries.

He estimates around 270 million people worldwide today on the brink of starvation — what’s entirely avoidable but it’s happening because of endless wars and indifference to the health, welfare and rights of world’s most vulnerable people.

Millions reside in Yemen, victimized by US aggression because of its strategic location.

It’s near the Horn of Africa on Saudi Arabia’s southern border, the Red Sea, its Bab el-Mandeb strait — a key chokepoint separating Yemen from Eritrea through which millions barrels of oil pass daily — and the Gulf of Aden connection to the Indian Ocean.

It’s why war to gain and maintain control of the country rages endlessly.

Yemeni Houthi freedom fighters want their country back.   

They want US-led aggression ended, US/Saudi forces out of the country once and for all.

Millions of Yemenis on the brink of starvation want to live, not die.

The Saudis are waging US proxy war on the country, massacring thousands, destroying vital infrastructure —  schools, food storage facilities, residential areas, and hospitals, wrecking Yemen’s healthcare system.

Millions of Yemenis face endless violence, lack of treatment for illnesses and injuries, starvation, and for many in the country widespread famine.

The entire population is at risk.

Beasley warned that things are “sliding toward the brink of the abyss” today.

Millions of desperate people in Yemen, Afghanistan, Syria, Sudan, South Sudan, the Sahel and elsewhere — dozens of countries where millions of people go hungry because of US aggression and/or support for endless wars.

Beasley visited Sana’a, Yemen’s Al Sabeen children’s hospital.

He was overwhelmed by horror stories and what he saw firsthand.

He witnessed pain, incredible hardships, sick children whose bodies were skin and bones, and countless numbers on the brink of death from preventable or treatable illnesses and hunger.

“If I showed you some of the pictures, you would not believe it, and no one with a heart at all could sit idly by and let this continue. No one,” he stressed!  

Ending war in Yemen and other countries, along with lots of money for food and healthcare are desperately needed to save lives. end pain and indescribable suffering.

Beasley estimates around 250,000 deaths in Yemen from war, untreated diseases and starvation.

A more accurate toll since Bush/Cheney launched aggression in the country almost two decades ago is likely at least ten-fold higher than Beasley’s estimate.

What’s going on won’t likely end unless world community members no longer tolerate US-led wars on humanity.

They continue in multiple theaters by hot and/or other means, the human toll mounting exponentially each day.

Millions Harmed by the Mother of All Con Games

By Stephen Lendman

Since last year, countless millions in the US and elsewhere were conned to believe what shows up every year with no fear-mongering created mass hysteria became harmful to health and well-being like never before and required draconian policies to address.

According to Swedish health experts Professors Anna-Mia Ekstrom and Stefan Swartling Peterson, countless human suffering and deaths occurred unnecessarily because of  restrictions imposed on people in the West and elsewhere — unjustifiably justified by a high-intensity campaign of Big Lies and mass deception.

The imposed cure has been infinitely more harmful than the disease it pretends to address.

Ekstrom and Peterson aren’t alone in their analysis. Countless other medical and scientific experts agree with their conclusions.

What’s gone on since last year is madness.

Ekstrom and Peterson said evidence from their analysis shows that many, likely most, claimed deaths from covid were from something else – making official numbers meaningless.

One example is what Illinois Department of Public Health director Ngozi Exike said about alleged covid deaths from covid:

“If you were in hospice and had already been given a few weeks to live and then you were also found to have covid — even if fully recovered — that would be counted as a covid death, despite if you died of a clear alternative cause it’s still listed as a COVID death.” 

“So everyone who is listed as a covid death that doesn’t mean that was the cause of the death, but” it’s counted this way.

It’s well known that countless numbers of reported deaths from causes unrelated to covid were falsely attributed to it — to artificially inflate numbers in the West.

It’s also known that the survival rate for seasonal flu-renamed covid for individuals under age-70 is 99.95% — 95% for people over age-70.

Lockdowns where imposed were most harmful of all.

According to Jay Bhattacharya, MD, PhD:

“Internationally, the lockdowns have placed 130 million people on the brink of starvation, 80 million children at risk for diphtheria, measles and polio, and 1.8 million patients at risk of death from tuberculosis.”

“The lockdowns in developed countries have devastated the poor in poor countries.” 

“The World Economic Forum estimates that the lockdowns will cause an additional 150 million people to fall into extreme poverty, 125 times as many people as have died from COVID.”

The above excludes immeasurable psychological pain, suffering, and economic loss for what dark forces in the US and West ordered.

Things mandated last year, along with remains in place, continue to cause infinitely more harm to countless millions of people than any number of the most serious diseases combined.

Worst of all, what’s devastated most people in the West elsewhere most likely is prelude for much worse ahead.

If dark forces achieve their aims, world community nations will be transformed into ruler/serf societies.

Remaining freedoms will be lost. Life as existed pre-2020 will be gone forever — replaced by dystopian harshness.

Nonbelievers will be eliminated to silence dissent.

What new world order harshness dark forces in the US and West have in mind may make today’s unacceptable conditions seem like paradise by comparison.

Biden Continues US War on Venezuelan Social Democracy

Let’s not mince words.

Biden and hardliners around him are like their predecessors.

They’re hostile toward virtually everything just societies hold dear — notably democracy the way it should be.

The US and West have fantasy versions, the real thing virtually banned.

Established by Hugo Chavez in 1999, continued by Nicolas Maduro, Venezuelans have governance of, by, and for everyone equitably — social democracy.

US policymakers consider it a threat of a good example — why they’ve gone all out to replace it with fascist tyranny short of hot war that remains an ominous possibility.

Since establishment of Venezuelan social democracy, US regimes from the Clinton co-presidency to Obama/Biden, then Trump, and now Biden/Harris aim to return the country to client state status.

They seek control over its vast oil resources, the world’s largest.

In 2013, Obama/Biden killed Chavez. Poisoned or infected with cancer causing substances, four major surgeries in 18 months couldn’t save him.

At the time, William Blum explained that the CIA worked diligently to develop substances that could kill without leaving a trace.”

“I Personally believe that Hugo Chavez was murdered by the United States,” he said.

Coup plots against him and Maduro failed. Other dirty tricks worked no better, including intermittent, US orchestrated, street violence.

Virtually everything US regimes threw at Venezuela to eliminate its model social democracy failed.

Further attempts are virtually certain. The US is hellbent to transform all sovereign independent nations into subservient client states.

It’s likely just a matter of time before another attempted regime change plot surfaces.

At the same time, endless US war by other means continues.

In 2015, Obama/Biden declared Bolivarian social democracy an “unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States (sic).”

On Wednesday, Biden/Harris reaffirmed the above, saying the following:

“(C)ircumstances described in Executive Order 13692 (2015), and subsequent executive orders issued with respect to Venezuela, have not improved (sic), and they continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States (sic).”

“Therefore in accordance with section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 USC 1622(d), I am continuing for 1 year the national emergency declared in Executive Order 13692 (sic).”

Bolivarian Venezuela prioritizes peace, stability, and cooperative relations with other countries — threatening no one, surely not the USA, armed and dangerous with nuclear and other super-weapons.

Biden’s new executive order maintains a US state of war by other means on the Bolivarian Republic.

No US national emergency exists with Venezuela or any other countries. No US enemies exist.

So time and again they’re invented by US policymakers to justify what’s unjustifiable under international and US constitutional law.

On March 2, Tony Blinken’s spokesman Ned Price said the following:

His boss spoke with widely despised, usurper-in-waiting, self-declared Venezuelan president with no legitimacy Guaido.

“Blinken stressed the importance of a return to democracy in Venezuela through free and fair elections (sic).”

After Maduro’s PSUV party won an overwhelming legislative majority last December with over two-thirds public support — a landslide triumph — the EU withdrew support for Guaido as (self-declared) interim president (with no legitimacy).

Jimmy Carter called Venezuela’s electoral process “the best in the world” for good reason. Elections when held are scrupulously open, free and fair.

When Maduro was reelected in May 2018, over 150 members of the International Electoral Accompaniment Mission said the following:

“The technical and professional trustworthiness and independence of the National Electoral Council of Venezuela are uncontestable.”

The Council of Electoral Experts of Latin America, one of the observer groups, said “results communicated by the National Electoral Council reflect the will of the voters who decided to participate in the electoral process.”

Similar assessments follow all Bolivarian elections.

They shame US fantasy democracy — a totalitarian police state, masquerading as democratic.

According to Price, Blinken is “increas(ing) multilateral pressure… for a peaceful, democratic transition (sic).”

Longstanding US policy calls for eliminating Bolivarian social democracy, wanting Venezuela transformed into a vassal state under US-installed puppet rule.

The above is how the scourge of US imperialism operates worldwide.

All nations free from its control are targeted for regime change — wars by hot and/or other means its favored strategies.

Illegal sanctions are weapons of war by other means.

Blinken said they’ll remain in place to continue US maximum pressure on the country.

Venezuelan social democracy conflicts with US imperial aims to dominate planet earth, control its resources, and exploit its people everywhere.

As long as Bolivarianism exists, both right wings of the US war party won’t likely cease trying to eliminate it.

Damascus and Moscow Slam Escalated US Aggression in Syria

See the source image

By Stephen Lendman

On Thursday, Biden regime terror-bombing strikes in Syria showed his contempt for the rule of law and unbending hostility toward Damascus and Tehran.

It also showed the illusion of his diplomatic outreach to Iran, an act of rhetorical head-fake deception with no policy action follow-through.

On Thursday, Blinken’s spokesman Price pretended otherwise, saying:

“(O)ur approach recognizes that maximum pressure accompanied by the lack of diplomatic engagement got us to where we are.” 

“That is why we are embarking on a different path, one that prioritizes real, principled, clear-eyed diplomacy (sic).”

Actions are polar opposite, indicating more of the same ahead.

Falsely blaming Iran for strikes on US bases and Baghdad’s Green Zone it had nothing to do with, followed by sending a message to Tehran by terror-bombing Syria, shows no change in maximum failure policy toward the Islamic Republic.

So does refusal to return to JCPOA compliance and lift illegally imposed sanctions.

Endless US war on Iran by other means continues under Biden.

Ignore rhetoric by regime officials. Follow their actions.

They show continuation of Trump’s anti-Iran agenda instead of going another way.

Biden officials also relentlessly push the phony threat of Iran advancing toward developing and producing nukes — knowing reality is polar opposite.

Where the Islamic Republic hasn’t gone for over 42 years, it shows no intention of moving toward now.

Yet the Big Lie otherwise persists in Washington, other Western capitals and Tel Aviv.

It refuses to die because Big Lies keep it alive.

In response to Biden’s escalated aggression, Syria’s Foreign Ministry said the following:

“In a flagrant violation of the rules of international law and Charter of the United Nations, the US warplanes on Thursday, February 25, 2021, launched a cowardly aggression by bombing some areas in Deir Ezzor province near the Syrian-Iraqi borders,” adding:

It sent a message to Damascus and Tehran that Biden intends continuation of endless aggression in Syria that aims to gain another US client state along with seeking to isolate Iran regionally.

It shows no change in US hostility toward the Islamic Republic, no intention to engage with its officials diplomatically according to the rule of law, no change in longstanding US regional imperial aims.

They’re all about dominating the Middle East, partitioning targeted countries for easier control, plundering their resources, and exploiting their people.

US ruling authorities aim to achieve their objectives through endless wars by hot and other means — even though they haven’t succeeded and won’t likely ahead.

It’s futile for Iran to believe that Biden will diverge from Trump’s hardline agenda.

Since taking office, he’s followed Trump’s toughness and escalated aggression, showing more of the same is highly likely.

Syria’s Foreign Ministry also slammed endless Israeli aggression, its undeclared war on the country with no end of it in prospect, so-called “international forces” in the country pursuing the same agenda, and high crimes by ISIS and other terrorists the West and Jewish state support.

The Syrian Arab Republic affirms its determination to defeat illegal occupation, eliminate the scourge of terrorism, and liberate “every inch” of its territory.

Moscow criticized Biden’s aggression, a Foreign Ministry statement saying:

“We strongly condemn such actions and call for Syria’s sovereignty and territorial integrity to be unconditionally respected.”

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said “(w)e are closely monitoring the situation on the ground.”

“We are in permanent contact with Syrian colleagues.”

Russia’s presidential envoy to Syria said the Biden regime has yet to cooperate with Russia on issues relating to Syria or Iran.

Sergey Lavrov said Russia was only notified of US airstrikes four to five minutes in advance, a useless, offensive heads-up, adding the following:

“We have recently heard different information from different sources.” 

“While we cannot confirm this, we want to ask the Americans directly.” 

“Reportedly, they could be making a decision to never leave Syria at all, eventually leading to the destruction of the country as a whole.”

There’s no ambiguity about US aims. Wars by hot and other means continue endlessly, no resolution in prospect anywhere.

Permanent occupation of Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, and numerous other countries is planned.

Regime change targets all nations free from US control, wanting pro-Western puppet rule replacing their sovereign independence.

US rage for unchallenged dominance over planet earth, its resources and populations makes unthinkable global war possible.

Going another way with Iran and other independent nations was never Washington’s intention and surely isn’t now.

Biden Deploying More US Troops to Middle East

Throughout his time in Washington from the early 1970s, Biden supported all US wars of aggression against invented enemies.

Will he escalate inherited conflicts in multiple countries, perhaps launch one or more new ones?

Like his predecessors, peace and stability are off the table.

A permanent state of forever war is highly likely to continue on his watch.

It’s been hard-wired US policy throughout most of the post-WW II period.

When Biden took office, Syria’s UN envoy Bashar al Jaafari called on his regime to end a near-decade of US war in his country, saying the following:

“The American occupation forces continue to plunder Syria’s wealth of oil, gas and agricultural crops, burning and destroying what it cannot steal,” adding:

“The new (US regime) must stop acts of aggression and occupation, plundering the wealth of my country, (and) withdraw its occupying forces.”

It must “stop supporting (jihadists), illegal entities, and attempts to threaten Syria’s sovereignty, unity and territorial integrity.”

Obama/Biden launched aggression against Syria in early 2011, a failed attempt to transform the country into a pro-Western vassal state and isolate Iran.

Biden/Harris have no intention of ending US forever war on Syria and its people — despite failure to achieve the aims of its predecessors.

The US is building one or more new bases in the country, suggesting no end to permanent occupation and war.

More Pentagon troops are being deployed to Syria and Iraq — on the phony pretext of combatting an ISIS resurgence the US supports, a statement by Pentagon spokeswoman Jessica McNulty saying the following:

“The US is participating in the force generation process for NATO Mission Iraq and will contribute its fair share to this important expanded mission (sic),” adding: 

“The US and its partners in the global coalition to defeat ISIS (sic) remain committed to ensuring the enduring defeat of ISIS (sic), and the department looks forward to continued consultations with Iraq, NATO, and the global coalition going forward (sic).”

According to US installed NATO secretary general Stoltenberg, thousands more alliance troops are being sent to Iraq — on the phony pretext of combatting ISIS.

Defying reality, he added that US-controlled NATO occupation of Iraq will “expand (to) fight terrorism” the alliance supports.

He falsely claimed that the expanded mission comes “at the request of the Iraqi government (sic).”

“It is carried out with full respect for Iraq’s sovereignty and territorial integrity (sic).”

The vast majority of Iraqis and members of parliament want their country back. They want unacceptable US occupation ended.

US hardliners intend permanent occupation of Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Yemen, and other countries, along with a permanent state of war on these nations and their long-suffering people.

Trump wanted US troops withdrawn from the region but failed to achieve this objective.

Biden wants more Pentagon occupying forces sent to Middle East countries, more likely to Afghanistan.

US war secretary Austin “welcomed” greater numbers of US and NATO forces in the Middle East and elsewhere, saying:

“From Afghanistan and the Middle East, across Europe, Africa and our own hemisphere, to the wide expanse of the Western Pacific, the United States stands shoulder-to-shoulder with allies old and new, partners big and small (sic),” adding: 

“Each of them brings to the mission unique skills, knowledge and capabilities.” 

“And each of them represents a relationship worth tending, preserving and respecting. We will do so.”

Before Trump left office, acting war secretary Miller said the following:

“The drawdown of US force levels in Iraq is reflective of the increased capabilities of the Iraqi security forces.” 

“Our ability to reduce force levels is evidence of real progress.”

Biden reversed dubious “progress” in Iraq, Syria and elsewhere.

A state of greater US war in multiple countries exists than when he took war.

Is much more of the same coming, perhaps facilitated by one or more US false flags?

According to a White House statement,” the Biden regime claims the “right (to strike its enemies) at a time and place of (its) choosing.”

Is escalated US aggression in Syria and Iraq coming?

Will Iran be falsely blamed for things it had nothing to do with as before?

Resurgence of US supported ISIS appears part of a Biden regime plan for greater belligerence instead of turning a page for peace and stability in the Middle East and Central Asia.

Epidemic of Harm from Covid Vaccines

The expression fools rush in where angels fear to tread applies to everyone going along with experimental, high-risk, hazardous covid jabs that aren’t vaccines and don’t protect.

The public has been conned to believe otherwise, Big Media complicit with the diabolical mass deception scam.

Widespread mass-jabbing for seasonal flu-renamed covid risks mass casualties in the US and abroad.

Virtually everyone jabbed with Moderna’s DNA altering toxins suffered adverse events to some degree.

Around 5% of individuals receiving low doses and 21% of high-dose recipients suffered serious harm requiring hospitalization.

The above translates to potentially millions of casualties in the US and abroad.

According to data from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) from December 14 to February 4, 12,697 adverse events and 653 deaths were reported from covid jabs.

VAERS is hugely inaccurate. According to an earlier HHS study, it captures “fewer than 1% of injuries.”

The actual injury rate, including deaths is over 100-fold greater than what’s publicly reported. 

Do the math. Multiply the above VAERS numbers x 100 for an accurate count of casualties and deaths from Moderna and Pfizer jabs. 

After around two months of mass-jabbing, the numbers already are at catastrophic levels.

As long as the process continues unchecked, they’ll rise more exponentially than already.

If Moderna and Pfizer mRNA/DNA altering toxins continue to be mass-jabbed throughout 2021 into the following year, millions of Americans may be seriously harmed.

Hundreds of thousands may die, the elderly with weakened immune systems most vulnerable.

What’s already known is alarming. What’s yet to be learned may reveal catastrophically large numbers of people harmed from mass-jabbing for seasonal flu-renamed covid.

Through February 10, nearly 45 million Americans received one or two jabs.

Nearly 800 cases of potentially lethal anaphylaxis were reported, the true number surely much higher.

One dose can cause serious harm. Two or more doses increase the chance exponentially, including the risk of death.

No just cause exists for jabbing anyone when safe and effective treatments exist when used as directed.

Instead of promoting the latter over the former, Big Media are complicit with Pharma and US dark forces in pushing what risks serious harm at the expense of preserving and protecting health and well-being.

What’s been going on in the US and West since early last year is the most diabolical plot against public health and ordinary people overall in modern memory.

Mass covid-jabbing provides no immunity, no protection from illness, just potential serious harm to health and well-being.

To preserve what’s too precious to lose, choose safe and effective meds to treat seasonal flu-renamed covid as needed, ones I’ve written about many times.

Shun harmful to health mass-jabbing for covid that risks serious adverse events and no protection.

Russia Needs To Realize That EU Diplomacy Is Based On Deception

Russia Needs To Realize That EU Diplomacy Is Based On Deception

Russia was left embarrassed after EU foreign policy chief Borrell suddenly flipped the script on his views about bilateral relations upon returning back to the bloc after what Foreign Minister Lavrov had previously thought was his constructive visit to Moscow just days earlier, though this incident might hopefully provide the long-overdue impetus for Russia to finally realize that EU diplomacy is based on deception and that no remarks from any of its representatives should ever be accepted at face value even if they were considered to be “candid” ones made behind closed doors.

Russia’s learning a much-needed and long-overdue lesson after being embarrassed by EU foreign policy chief Borrell following the surprise comments that he made after his visit to Moscow that Foreign Minister Lavrov had previously considered to have been a constructive exchange of ideas. Borrell flipped the script on what he had earlier implied during the press conference with his Russian counterpart just days prior by writing on his blog that he now believed that Moscow has no desire to improve relations with Brussels. The Russian Foreign Ministry responded by noting that he “had all opportunities to immediately deliver (his) personal evaluation” during the press conference, “No one restricted him either in time or in format”, but that “Perhaps, the EU foreign policy chief received explanations upon his arrival to Brussels on how to lay emphases, but in this case, it only proves who and how is shaping up the EU policies in reality.”

In other words, Russia feels deceived since it sincerely thought that its diplomatic counterparts’ views were sincere, especially those comparatively “candid” ones that were shared behind closed doors as is the norm in this profession. Nothing that Borrell said in public or private made Lavrov or his deputies think that he was giving them the runaround. After all, his public playing down of sanctions over Navalny and praise of Sputnik V were impressive goodwill gestures that they assumed he wouldn’t have done if he wasn’t sincere in his desire to improve bilateral relations. It therefore naturally follows that his remarks behind closed doors were probably very similar in spirit to the ones that he shared in public since it wouldn’t make sense for him to give them a tongue-lashing in private only to flip the script in public for the global audience’s sake. Russia’s diplomats are world-class and this is how they expect their counterparts to conduct their honorable profession.

Be that as it may, Russian diplomats were played for fools by Borrell, though they didn’t realize it until he returned back to the bloc and started blogging. There’s no doubt that the visit went smoothly, both in public and in private as was explained, so they had no reason to suspect any foul play until he surprised them with his online remarks. It might comfort Russia and/or help it “save face” to think that someone in Brussels or perhaps even further abroad pulled Borrell’s strings, but the argument being made in this analysis is that he was the one trying to pull theirs. To be absolutely clear, Russia did everything by the book during his visit and there wasn’t anything else that they should have done at the time considering all the positive signals that they received from him in public and in private, but at the end of the day, he seems to have just been faking them out. An analysis of his provocative blog post hints at what he might have been thinking at the time.

Borrell claims that his interactions with Lavrov were sometimes very intense even though he didn’t show it during their press conference. About that, he described it as “aggressively staged” and condemned the expulsion of some EU diplomats who violated their professional code of conduct by joining in unauthorized pro-Navalny rallies, though if that’s truly how he felt, then he did an excellent job disguising it. In hindsight, he should have made his feelings known right then and there in order to clear up any ambiguity created by his positive press conference with Lavrov. For some reason, despite Russia repeatedly — and in the eyes of some of its most passionate supporters abroad, almost embarrassingly — reminding its European counterparts of its deep-seated desire to enter into a rapprochement and reset their relations back to their pre-2014 halcyon days, Borrell wrote how convinced he now is that “Russia is progressively disconnecting itself from Europe”.

Truth be told, many Non-Russian Pro-Russians (NRPR) have publicly pleaded on the internet for years that this is exactly the course of action that Russia should have commenced seven years ago, with many expressing their frustration every time that Moscow obsequiously talks about what it still continues to this day to describe as its so-called “Western partners”. Instead, the learning experience of the past week taught by none other than Borrell himself should imbue Russian strategists with a fresh impetus to accelerate the “recalibration” of their Great Power’s “balancing” act towards China after its recent high-profile diplomatic disagreements with India, double down on its “Ummah Pivot” to Muslim-majority countries, and comprehensively expand relations with Africa. That doesn’t mean that they should abandon the Western vector of their diplomatic outreaches, but just that it mustn’t continue to take precedence over all others like it hitherto has.

As interesting of an observation as it may be, non-Western diplomats still tend to practice diplomacy in the classical way that it’s intended unlike their Western counterparts. The former are more sincere behind closed doors than the latter are, as proven by the embarrassing Borrell episode. The EU is trying to humiliate Russia by manipulating its diplomats’ professional expectations in order to turn them into fools on the world stage, something that Russia’s non-Western partners aren’t interested in doing. The bloc is doing this because of the power trip that it’s been on with American backing over the past seven years, believing (whether accurately or not) that Russia needs them more than the reverse since it’s always Moscow that’s requesting (or as critics claim, begging for) a rapprochement and never Brussels. Moscow was just practicing diplomacy in its classical way, but Brussels misinterpreted it as political desperation that it subsequently sought to exploit at every turn.

There’s truth to the Russian perception that the EU is mostly controlled by the US, but the former’s diplomats mustn’t rely any longer on that train of thought as an excuse for dismissing every blatantly disrespectful action that the latter’s commit. It’s time for Russia to recognize that the EU must take responsibility its actions, including its willingness to continue remaining mostly controlled by the US. Blaming America might score some rhetorical points with at home and among Western dissidents, but clinging to that belief and actually acting upon it by looking the other way whenever the EU diplomatically slaps Russia around risks leading to a loss of respect for this proud Great Power. Thankfully, Moscow’s recent expulsion of EU diplomats hints that it’s regaining its self-respect and belatedly recognizing that the bloc isn’t its friend. It can only be hoped that this is followed up by Russia confirming Borrell’s worst nightmare and finally distancing itself from the West.

US Hostility Toward Russia Unchanged Under Biden

US war by hot and/or other means rages against all nations free from its control — notably against China, Russia and Iran.

During his Thursday address, Biden signaled continued US dirty business as usual against invented enemies — not a new course toward cooperative relations with other countries.

He falsely accused China and Russia of “advancing authoritarianism…to damage and disrupt our ‘democracy (sic),’ ” adding:

“(T)he days of the United States rolling over in the face of Russian aggressive actions (sic), interfering with our elections (sic), cyberattacks (sic), poisoning its citizens (sic) are over.”

“We will not hesitate to raise the cost on Russia and defend our vital interests and our people, and we will be more effective in dealing with Russia when we work in coalition and coordination with other like minded partners.”

Aggression and other dirty tricks reflect how US ruling regimes operate.

Under Vladimir Putin, Russia is governed by higher standards, ones the US and its imperial partners long ago abandoned.

The same goes for China, Iran, and other nations the US seeks to transform into pro-Western vassal states.

The more forcefully it tries, the more greatly its decline is hastened, the sooner it arrives in history’s dustbin where it belongs.

It’s long past time for the Kremlin to abandon diplomatic outreach to hegemonic USA that’s hellbent for eliminating its sovereign independence.

Toughness is the only language the US understands. 

Giving it a taste of its own medicine is the only way to counter its hegemonic rage for dominating other nations.

On Friday, Moscow acted properly by declaring German, Polish and Swedish “diplomats” persona non grata for support of and participation in violent po-Navalny/anti-Russia rallies on January 23, a Foreign Ministry statement saying:

“In compliance with the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations of April 18, 1961, ‘diplomats’ who took part in unauthorized rallies have been declared persona non grata.” 

They’re hostile toward Moscow and “must leave Russia as soon as possible.”

Revoking their credentials requires their swift departure.

“The Russian side expects that” these nations and officials respect Russia’s sovereign rights and the rule of law.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova called on these and other nations to cease “meddl(ing) in the internal affairs of a sovereign state.”

Sweden’s Foreign Ministry’s said it “considers this entirely unjustified (sic), which we have also conveyed to the Russian side.” 

“The ministry regrets Russia’s actions and reserves the right to take appropriate measures in response.”

Poland’s Foreign Ministry said it “reserves the right to take adequate steps,” in response — vowing to expel a Russian diplomat.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel falsely called Russia’s action “a step away from the rule of law,” suggesting a retaliatory action to follow.

Russia’s Foreign Ministry slammed what it called a “coordinated global campaign to contain Russia and interfere in its internal affairs.”

Suggesting US dirty hands behind it, Zakharova said Moscow intends having “a serious talk” with Biden regime officials on the issue.

Separately, Sergey Lavrov slammed fake news claims about Navalny’s alleged poisoning by novichok, a bald-faced Big Lie, stressing:

“Today we simply bogged down in a topic that for some reason the West is now trying to sideline, focusing all of its attention on protests and demonstrations in the Russia.” 

“I am referring to the topic of finding the truth about what happened to Navalny and when and where it happened.”

Despite “numerous requests” by Russia to Germany, France, Sweden and the OPCW for information they have on Navalny’s illness, “(t)hey just won’t give us any answers,” said Lavrov — calling their behavior “categorically unacceptable.”

In response to Biden’s hostile rhetoric toward Russia, Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the following:

“This is very aggressive and unconstructive rhetoric, to our regret.”

“We have already said that we will not heed such statements, which are some kind of mentoring lectures.”

US hostility toward Russia and other nations free from its control is unbending, diplomatic outreach by their ruling authorities to their US counterparts a waste of time.

Throughout the post-WW II period, the US waged endless wars by hot and/or other means on nations unwilling to subordinate their sovereign rights to its interests.

Looking ahead under Biden/Harris and whatever US regimes succeed them, no evidence remotely suggests a new leaf turned for cooperative relations with these countries over endless confrontation.

Hazardous Vaccines v. Safe and Effective Treatment for Covids

Image result for Stephen Lendman

Since last year’s seasonal flu-renamed covid season — what shows up annually — we’ve been lied to by Big Government in cahoots with Big Pharma and Big Media.

What’s going on is a diabolical plot against public health, the rule of law, and nations safe and fit to live in.

All of the above are under assault by US-led Western dark forces, monied interests, and their media press agents.

Since mass-vaxxing in the West began for so-called covid last December, thousands of adverse events, including hundreds of deaths, were officially reported by the CDC’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).

Through January 29, it reported 11,249 adverse events — including over 500 deaths, scores of permanently disabled individuals, and hundreds more whose lives are  endangered.

Through late January, about 35 million people in the US were vaxxed against covid once or twice with Pfizer’s or Moderna’s hazardous, unapproved, experimental vaccines.

According to an earlier HHS report, VAERS is deeply flawed and worthless.

It captures fewer than 1% of injuries (and deaths) from vaxxing.

Actual numbers near-and-longer-term from vaxxing are more than 100x greater than what VAERS reports.

Do the math: Multiply official CDC reported numbers of adverse events (including deaths) x 100.

It reveals the catastrophic scale of harm so far from covid vaxxing in the US alone.

If it continues unchecked, millions of Americans and countless others abroad may become seriously harmed or die from hazardous to health/unneeded covid vaccines.

What’s going on is the greatest high crime against humanity in modern memory

The ugly reality is officially concealed — establishment media complicit with the diabolical plot against human health.

For months, they’ve been heavily pushing what no one wanting their health protected and preserved should touch.

There’s nothing remotely safe or beneficial about hazardous to health covid vaccines, just the opposite.

Staying well, avoiding injury or death — near-or-longer-term — demands not permitting its toxins to be jabbed into our bodies.

The alternative risks serious irreversible harm or worse.

Joseph Mercola reported about Dr. Vladimir Zelenko “near-100% success rate in treating (seasonal flu-renamed) covid patients” since last March.

He used safe, effective, low-cost hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), azithromycin and zinc sulfate for five days.

After treating about 3,000 patients with this protocol, three high-risk ones alone died, the others cured, their health restored.

As Mercola and other experts stressed, we’ve been consistently lied to about HCQ since early last year — a campaign to push hazardous to health covid vaccines to avoid, not use.

Most often for younger people with normal immune systems, no treatment is needed.

When I was around aged-50, I had seasonal flu.

It knocked me out for a few days, drained my energy, killed my appetite, and prevented me from pursing daily activities.

Symptoms lasted around 72 hours. I took no meds or sought medical treatment, just hunkered down at home and rested.

I fully recovered with no adverse after-effects to this day.

Aware of the symptoms from personal experience and considerable writing about them, if affected again the same or in a similar way, I’ll have one of my doctors prescribe the above protocol straightaway.

Under no circumstances will I permit toxins from covid vaccines to be jabbed into my body.

Nor should anyone else!

At my age, the same as baseball great Hank Aaron’s when he likely died from covid vaxxing, I’d greatly risk a similar fate if vaxxed.

Like hundreds, maybe thousands, of other doctors worldwide, Zelenko had “remarkable results” with the above protocol treatment for seasonal flu-renamed covid, stressing:

It “prevents progression of disease and patients get better.”

It works this way nearly always for people of all ages.

For his candor, social media censored him. 

Twitter banned him as part of an ongoing state-sponsored war on truth-telling in the US and West.

Effectiveness of the above protocol has been known for years, Zelenko explained.

Before scamster Fauci sold his soul to Big Government and Big Pharma for self-serving interests, he called HCQ a miracle drug, a dream treatment, Zelenko explained, adding:

Epidemiologists George Fareed and Harvey Risch “show(ed) that it’s absolutely statistically proven that HCQ used in the prehospital setting is absolutely effective.” 

“It’s impossible for it to be a mistake.”

Ivermectin for treating seasonal flu-renamed covid is also safe and effective.

Pre-2020, the notion of treating seasonal flu/influenza by vaxxing wasn’t mentioned by Big Governments or their Big Media press agents in the West — because the illness is effectively treated other ways.

Heavily promoting covid vaccines today is part of a mass deception campaign against human health.

According to noted Dr. Lee Merritt, covid vaccines are “weaponized medicine.”

They’re experimental/hazardous “biologically manipulated bioweapon(s).”

The “chance of survival” and recovery from “viral flu” exceeds 99.9%.”

Nothing remotely justifies using what Merritt called injections that cause irreversible damage by altering the human genetic code.

Mass-vaxxing for covid is biological warfare against everyone falling for the scam.

Thousands of doctors and scientists worldwide share Merritt’s view.

Avoid them to protect and preserve health.

Ignore state-approved propaganda that falsely claims otherwise.

Censorship’s Ugly Face in the US

State-sponsored/Big Media supported war on truth-telling threatens fundamental First Amendment rights — without which all others may be lost.

Increasing totalitarian rule in the US is all about eliminating a free and open society — police state enforced tyranny replacing it.

The constitutional right to express views freely — no matter how unacceptable to others — is on the chopping block for elimination.

The official, state-approved, falsified narrative, alone is considered acceptable in public discourse.

For exercising her First Amendment rights, undemocratic Dems and 11 complicit GOP House members stripped Rep. Marjorie Greene of her committee posts — a shameful breach of her constitutional rights.

She and all others in the US are constitutionally permitted to express views freely on all issues unobstructed. 

House Dems and complicit Republicans are guilty of a major constitutional breach that at minimum demands censure.

Frankly my dear I don’t give a damn what Greene said earlier.

Even if I profoundly disagree with her, I wholeheartedly support her right to publicly express views on any topics — on the House floor, on television when interviewed, on rooftops shouting them if she wishes.

She walked back from earlier comments, saying they reflect her past, not current values.

It was an inappropriate remark. The views of most people evolve over time.

My own changed a number of times through the years based on new or updated information.

In the US, diverging from the official narrative increasingly is at risk of being labeled domestic terrorism.

Greene reportedly tweeted: “Republican voters support (Trump) still. The party is his. It doesn’t belong to anybody else.”

She made other public remarks that diverged from the official narrative.

Action against her by Pelosi-led undemocratic Dems threatens the right of everyone to say anything they wish on all issues.

That fundamental right is fast eroding en route to disappearing altogether.

Fox News cancelled Lou Dobbs Tonight for the same reason Greene was targeted — for freely expressing his views that dissented from the official narrative.

According to the WSJ, he was taken off air following a “defamation lawsuit…by voting-machine company Smartmatic USA” that named him, two other Fox anchors and the network, the Journal adding:

His program was “one of the consistently highest-rated shows” — now replaced by Fox Business Tonight.

A staunch Trump supporter, Dobbs backed his claim of brazen Election 2020 fraud.

So do I!

In support of Dobbs, Trump noted his “large and loyal following that will be watching closely for his next move, and that following includes me.” 

A dubious Fox News statement said it “regularly considers programming changes, and plans have been in place to launch new formats as appropriate post-election, including on Fox Business.”

Networks don’t replace their top-rated shows with new ones.

Dobbs was taken off air for his views.

I know little about Greene, was never a Dobbs supporter, nor have ever watched his program.

Yet I condemn actions against them in flagrant breach of their constitutional rights to say whatever they wish about anything.

I’m no Trump supporter. I’ve been one of his sharpest critics throughout his time in office.

I strongly disagree with most of his views and actions.

On the topic of election-rigging for Biden, installing him in office by brazen fraud, I wholeheartedly share Trump’s view because he’s right.

He was reelected for a second term, getting more votes than any other presidential candidate in US history.

Biden lost. There’s no ambiguity about it. Indisputable evidence proved it.

Yet selected, unelected Biden is in the White House — publicly represented by a double for being too cognitively impaired to fulfill the duties of any office.

Trump returned to private life. Winning wasn’t enough for another term.

Election 2020 fraud was one of many examples of US fantasy democracy.

The real thing was banned from inception.

Totalitarian rule replaced it.

Today it’s on a fast track toward full-blown tyranny — wrapped in the American flag, part of ongoing mass deception about a nation unsafe and unfit to live in.

Years earlier, Political Science Professor Bertram Gross called governance in the US friendly fascism in his book using this title.

He described a slow, powerful “drift toward greater concentration of wealth and power in a repressive Big Business-Big Government,” Big Brother alliance, adding: 

What going on leads “toward a new and subtly manipulative form of corporatist serfdom.” 

Its friendly face turns dark as hardline policies emerge.

Gross passed away pre-9/11 in 1997. If alive today, he’d likely say I warned you about what’s coming. 

“Politicized Science”: Combatting Vaccine Tyranny

America’s Frontline Doctors (AFD) are in the vanguard of supporting medicine the way it should be practiced over politicized science.

At a time when Big Government in cahoots with Big Pharma and Big Media are hellbent for mass-vaxxing everyone everywhere with hazardous to health covid vaccines, AFD is actively involved in combatting their diabolical scheme with scientific truth-telling.

It provides “honest healthcare solutions” at a time of state-sponsored mass deception.

AFD: “The doctor-patient relationship is being threatened” today, notably in the West.

“(Q)uality patient care is under fire like never before.”

“Powerful interests are undermining the effective practice of medicine with politicized science and biased information.”

“Now more than ever, patients need access to independent, evidence-based information to make the best decisions for their healthcare.”

“Doctors must have the independence to care for their patients without interference from government, media and the medical establishment.”

AFD and likeminded medical professionals are on the frontlines of practicing medicine as it should be.

They reject politicized (voodoo) economic agendas “at the expense of science and quality healthcare solutions” — prioritizing the following:

Providing science-based facts about seasonal flu-renamed covid.

“Protecting physician independence from government overreach.”

Combatting “covid” with “science-based” practices that don’t compromise constitutional rights.

“Fighting medical cancel culture and media censorship.”

“Advancing healthcare policies that protect the physician-patient relationship.”

Treating “covid” with safe, effective, low-cost drugs known to work when used as directed.

Avoiding experimental, inadequately tested, hazardous to health “covid” vaccines that don’t protect and risk enormous harm.

Everyone is entitled to accurate information on how best to protect and preserve their health and well-being.

Government in cahoots with Pharma and establishment media long ago lost credibility.

Their enemies of ordinary people, exploiting them to benefit privileged interests at their expense.

AFD reject shutdowns, quarantines, and other practices not backed by scientific evidence.

They’re committed to maintain the sanctity of doctor-patient relationships — to benefit health by safe and effective practices that work and do no harm.

Emergency care physician Simone Gold MD founded AFD.

She was fired after appearing with other truth-telling physicians who explain what works in treating seasonal flu-renamed covid and what to avoid — namely toxic vaccines.

Last August, she tweeted the following:

“I was defamed by the media, censored by social media companies, terminated from employment, and viciously attacked, all for advocating for the right of physicians to prescribe what they believe is best for their patients.”

When used as directed, hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) combined with either azithromycin or doxycycline and zinc are highly effective in treating and curing “covid” — what government and Pharma in cahoots with establishment media want suppressed.

Doctors using this protocol — or ivermectin — understand their effectiveness and recommend them.

Dr. Stella Immanuel treated hundreds of “covid” infected patients with the above protocol, earlier saying:

“Any study that says hydroxychloroquine doesn’t work is fake science.”

“…I want them to show me how it doesn’t work.”

“How is it going to work for 350 patients for me, and they are all alive, and then somebody says it doesn’t work?”

“These so-called (establishment media promoted) studies (are) fake science.”

She, Gold, and AFD members debunked what they called a “massive disinformation campaign” against safe and effective HCQ in favor of hazardous to human health mass-vaxxing.

Immanuel had 100% success in treating 350 “covid” patients with the HCQ protocol.

She slammed politicians (and media) for trying to prevent doctors from being doctors, free to treat patients with medications known to work.

After going viral, truth-telling AFD video information was suppressed by You Tube, Facebook, Twitter and Google — to support hazardous to health mass-vaxxing.

AFD stressed the following:

People should never be pressured to comply with taking an experimental vaccine.

“This is becoming a very real danger.”

“The coercion can be implemented by government legislation or through policy directives by large private and public corporations, including airlines, employers, schools, and other institutions.”

“This type of assault on your medical privacy is invasive, aggressive, and unethical.”

The group supports a Vaccine Bill of Rights (VBOR), urging its adoption by all 50 US states.

It prohibits mandatory vaxxing for covid, vaccine passports, digital IDs, and other practices that compromise health, well-being, and fundamental rights of everyone.

Its principles state the following:

“No persons will be mandated, coerced, forced or pressured to take a COVID-19 vaccine.”

“No physician or nurse shall be asked by their employer to promote a COVID-19 vaccine.”

“All persons reserve the right, at all times, to determine what is in their own best medical interest without threat to their livelihood or freedom of movement.”

“All persons must be given access to independent information to help them determine what is in their own best medical interest, including the risk of death based upon age/condition from contracting COVID-19 naturally.”

“This information must include information from sources that are independent of a conflict of interest such as a government, political or commercial entity.”

“Such information can be included but cannot be the sole source of information.”

“The elderly are additionally entitled to a knowledgeable, independent advocate with medical training to help them determine their own medical interest.”

“Private businesses operating within the jurisdiction have no legal authority to require or mandate or coerce medication or experimental medication for any persons.”

The survival rate for seasonal flu-renamed covid is “99.7.”

The vast majority of individuals succumbing to the illness are elderly with weakened immune systems.

There’s no science-based justification for anyone anywhere to be vaxxed for “covid” when the HCQ protocol or ivermectin work safely and effectively in treating the illness.

Heavily promoted vaccines DO NOT protect and risk serious harm to health that for some is deadly.

Dozens of Deaths from Covid Vaxxing

Stephen Lendman. US Waging Wars on Multiple Fronts...Majority In Favor of  War

By Stephen Lendman

Virtually everything reported about covid, face masks, PCR tests, social distancing, and vaccines by Big Government, Pharma, and their Big Media press agents are bald-faced Big Lies or distortions.

An all-out mass deception campaign has been ongoing throughout most of 2020, continuing in the new year, to manipulate the public mind with rubbish that’s harmful to our health, well-being, safety and future.

Vaccines don’t protect. Too often, they cause diseases they’re promoted to protect against, along with risking illness from numerous others. 

High-risk, experimental Pfizer and Moderna DNA altering mRNA vaccines are especially dangerous.

The risk contraction of serious illnesses near-or-longer-term.

The especially risk death, notably to the elderly and infirm.

What government officials, Pharma, and Big Media suppress about the dangers of these vaccines is essential for everyone to know.

Around a month after mass-vaxxing for covid (aka seasonal flu/influenza) in the US began, at least 55 individuals died.

That’s what is known. Perhaps the true number is much higher to be learned later after widespread damage was done.

If dozens or more Americans died from vaxxing already, will thousand more suffer the same fate, notably among the elderly and infirm?

After all-out brainwashing to push mass-vaxxing, notably by Big Media, will what’s coming unleash a tsunami of serious illnesses and deaths ahead — including among normal adults who’d be alive and well if not vaxxed.

According to the US Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) — that greatly downplays numbers of adverse health events — 55 Americans already died from covid vaxxing.

VAERS is disturbingly inaccurate. According to Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s Children’s Health Defense:

“VAERS is an abysmal failure, (a) designed to fail” system.”

It lets “regulators and industry (maintain) their pretense that current vaccine risk profiles are acceptable.”

“A 2010 study funded by HHS concluded that VAERS captured ‘fewer than 1% of injuries.’ ” 

“In other words, the actual injury rates from mandated vaccines are more than 100x (greater than) what HHS has been telling the public!”

“The 2010 HHS study found that the true risk for serious adverse events was 26/1,000, or one in 37.”

The high risk applies to potential numbers ahead from covid vaxxing.

For Pfizer and Moderna experimental, inadequately tested, genetically modifying mRNA technology covid vaccines, the risk of serious illnesses and deaths may be much higher.

What’s already known is alarming. What’s yet to be known may reveal catastrophically large numbers of people harmed from mass-vaxxing for covid.

Even former FDA chief, incoming Biden/Harris regime chief science advisor Dr. David Kessler acknowledged that VAERS doesn’t work as claimed.

The VAERS website admits that reported adverse events “often lack details and sometimes can have information that contains errors.”

By letter to Kessler in December, Kennedy said the following:

“I am writing on behalf of Children’s Health Defense to request that you consider the long-overdue need for a comprehensive, high-integrity system to monitor adverse outcomes following” mass-vaxxing for covid.

“(A)s someone who has repeatedly called attention to the structural deficiencies of our nation’s (VAERS) drug adverse event (system), you are uniquely qualified to articulate (its) shortcomings and recommend badly needed improvements.”

VAERS “co-administered by FDA and CDC since 1990 is a well-documented public failure.”

“You have said yourself that the vaccine injury reports received by FDA ‘represent only a fraction of the serious adverse events’ that occur.” 

In your earlier “Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), “you noted that MEDWatch would not affect VAERS nor attempt to remedy underreporting of adverse events associated with vaccines.” 

“At the time, even vaccine manufacturers were estimating (confidentially) ‘a fifty-fold underreporting of (vaccine) adverse events.’ ”

Double this number is more accurate. Mass-vaxxing for covid poses an unacceptably high threat to public health and well-being.

ZeroHedge.com reported that large numbers of “calls (are urging) suspension of the use of mRNA-based COVID-19 vaccines” because of alarming numbers of reported deaths.

Norwegian health authorities said covid vaccines may be too high-risk for elderly individuals.

Pfizer’s mRNA vaccine is being used in the country.

A company statement downplayed numbers of deaths in Norway after vaxxing, saying:

“(T)he number of incidents so far is not alarming, and in line with expectations” — showing indifference toward public health and well-being, along with mass deception about the high risk its covid vaccine poses.

Along with increasing numbers of reported deaths from covid vaxxing, they’ve been thousands of reported adverse events, including life-threatening ones, in the US alone.

They’ve also been about two dozen reported cases of vaxxed individuals becoming permanently disabled, along with numerous emergency room visits and hospitalizations.

RT reported that over a dozen vaxxed Israelis experienced facial paralysis.

As of mid-January, over 10 million Americans were vaxxed for covid.

CDC National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases director Nancy Messonnier’s claim that Pfizer and Moderna covid vaccines “are safe and effective” is part of a state-sponsored, Big Media mass deception campaign.

It’s more evidence that we’re being lied to by indifferent to public health and well-being government officials and their media press agents.

If mass-vaxxing for continues unchecked in the US and elsewhere without interruption — what’s most likely — the toll on public health and welfare may increase exponentially.

Straight Talk by Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi

peacefromharmony.org/img.php?id=7606

By Stephen Lendman

Commenting at the onset of 2021 on China’s geopolitical agenda, Foreign Minister Wang Yi spoke candidly about major issues — his remarks worlds apart from how his US and other Western counterparts operate.

On relations with the US and West,  Wang said unilateralism, “protectionism and power politics are standing in the way of international cooperation,” risking unacceptable confrontation over good relations among world community nations.

While most countries choose to cooperate with others for their mutual benefit, hegemon USA and its imperial partners go another way for their own self-interest over world peace and stability.

In the past year and earlier, China “scored decisive successes in the three critical battles against poverty, pollution and potential risks,” said Wang, adding:

“The whole country is on course to fully build a moderately prosperous society.” 

“The recent Fifth Plenary Session of the 19th CPC Central Committee set a great vision for China’s development in the coming years and charted the course for national rejuvenation.”

“The unity and perseverance of the Chinese people have impressed the world.” 

“The resilience and dynamism of China’s development have won global recognition.”

Throughout 2020, China advanced its geopolitical interests cooperatively with other nations and “both (its) domestic needs and the international context,” along with confronting the US “political virus” in pursuing global stability.

“We have made more friends in the world. China has deepened friendship and cooperation with all countries, making active efforts to develop relations with major powers, achieving solid progress in building a community with a shared future with neighbors, protecting and advancing the shared interests of the developing world, and working for a new type of international relations,” said Wang.

“We have been firm in safeguarding our national interests.” 

“We have responded resolutely and rationally to unjustified moves by the United States.” 

“We have handled issues relating to Taiwan, Hong Kong, Xinjiang and Tibet with justified, strong and proportionate countermeasures and won one fierce battle after another in international organizations, vigorously safeguarding China’s sovereignty, dignity and development interests.”

At the same time, Beijing prioritizes “multilateral cooperation” — worlds apart from how imperial USA operates, for its own self-interest at the expense of other nations.

Summitry led by President Xi Jinping is “the highest form of diplomacy,” said Wang.

In 2020, Xi had “87 meetings and phone calls with foreign leaders and heads of international organizations and attend(ed) 22 important bilateral or multilateral events.”

Throughout the past year and earlier, Sino/Russian relations stood the test of time by bonding for the benefit of both nations.

“In developing China-Russia strategic cooperation, we see no limit, no forbidden zone and no ceiling to how far this cooperation can go.” 

“Focusing on the central task of implementing the common understandings of the two presidents, the two countries will use the opportunity of the 20th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Good-neighborliness and Friendly Cooperation to renew their shared commitment to ever-lasting peace and win-win cooperation.”

“Being each other’s strategic anchor, diplomatic priority, development opportunity and global partner, the two countries will expand and deepen cooperation from a higher starting point.” 

“Together, China and Russia will continue to be the example of good-neighborly and friendly relations between major countries, add impetus to global recovery, and underpin global strategic stability.”

In disturbingly stark contrast, US hostility toward China deepened at the expense of cooperative relations Washington spurns in pursuing its unilateral interests.

What’s going on shows its unacceptable “attempt to suppress China and start a new Cold War” that risks direct confrontation.

This unsupported policy by most world community nations is “doomed to fail,” Wang stressed.

“China’s policy toward the United States is consistent and stable.” 

“We are ready to develop with the United States a relationship based on coordination, cooperation and stability.” 

“China never meddles in the internal affairs of the United States and values peaceful co-existence and mutually beneficial cooperation with the United States.” 

“Likewise, the United States also needs to respect the social system and development path chosen by the Chinese people and respect their legitimate rights to pursue a better life.”

“We don’t need a world where China becomes another United States.” This is neither rational nor feasible. 

“Rather, the United States should try to make itself a better country” — what’s highly unlikely given its diabolical hegemonic aims that keep hardening, not easing.

The US seeks dominance over other nations, not mutual cooperation it spurns.

China’s relations with the EU are at times uneasy but less threatening than how the US operates.

In 2020, China “became the EU’s largest trading partner for the first time” that hopefully will develop further ahead to benefit both sides.

A new investment treaty was agreed on that shows mutual cooperation works when pursued.

“As a permanent member of the Security Council and a responsible major country, China has been exploring a distinctive Chinese way of resolving hotspot issues,” said Wang, adding: 

“We follow a vision of common, comprehensive, cooperative and sustainable security for the world.” 

“We maintain that regional disputes should be addressed through dialogue and consultation.” 

“We uphold non-interference in internal affairs (of other nations), which is a basic norm governing international relations.”

China pursues world peace and stability, an independent foreign policy, and cooperative relations with other nations according to the rule of law.

The US operates by a lower standard, spurning the above in pursuit of its hegemonic aims.

Russian Hacking Big Lie Never Dies

Stephen Lendman. US Waging Wars on Multiple Fronts...Majority In Favor of  War

Along with phony accusations of Russian US election meddling, allegations of Kremlin hacking are never supported by credible evidence because none exists.

In response to the latest Big Lie about Russian hacking, Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the following:

“I reject these statements, these (phony) accusations once again.”

Peskov added that if hacking occurred, Russia “ha(d) nothing to do with this.”

Nor has the US intelligence community, Congress, or any other source in the country ever presented evidence of illegal or improper Russian actions against the country — nor by any other nations.

When these accusations surface, they’re always from dark elements hostile to Russia and other nations free from US control.

So hostile to world peace and stability accusations are invented.

They’re spread by government and media sources to manipulate the public to believe Russia and other countries threaten the US and its people when no foreign threats exist.

What’s going on is all about unjustifiably justifying trillions of dollars spent for militarism and belligerence at the expense of a nation fit to live in.

Whenever these accusation surface, they’re fabricated every time, never legitimate, including the latest alleged cyber breach, falsely attributed to Russia.

Pompeo either initiated the latest anti-Russia Big Lie or repeated it, mass deception one of his many nefarious specialties.

On Friday, he recited the following Big Lies to be ignored, not swallowed, saying:

“You see the news of the day with respect to (Russian) efforts in the cyber space (sic).”  

“We’ve seen this for an awfully long time, using asymmetric capabilities to try and put themselves in a place where they can impose costs on the United States (sic).”

“Vladimir Putin remains a real risk to those of us who love freedom (sic), and we have to make sure that we prepare for each of them.”

“(T)here was a significant effort to use a piece of third-party software to essentially embed code inside of US government systems (sic), and it now appears systems of private companies and companies and governments across the world as well (sic).”  

“This was a very significant effort, and I think it’s the case that now we can say pretty clearly that it was the Russians that engaged in this activity (sic).”

Like always before, no evidence was presented to corroborate Pompeo’s accusations because there is none.

It’s unclear whether any hacking of government and/or private systems occurred anywhere.

No evidence suggests Russian responsibility for anything hostile to US interests domestically or abroad — not now or earlier.

True enough, Russia’s military has been involved in Syria since September 2015 — legitimately at the request of Damascus to combat US supported ISIS and likeminded terrorists.

It’s a noble mission in stark contrast to aggression against a sovereign state threatening no one by the US, NATO, Israel and their imperial partners.

Virtually nothing Pompeo claims is credible. Once a serial liar, always one.

During his annual marathon tour de force presser days earlier, Putin noted that virtually always before when US accusations were made against Russia, they proved groundless — the latest example no exception.

Not according to establishment media propaganda, NYT fake news leading the war of words on Russia, saying:

“(T)he Kremlin…used a variety of sophisticated tools to infiltrate dozens of government and private systems, including nuclear laboratories and the Pentagon, Treasury and Commerce Departments (sic).”

As always before in these type Times pieces, no evidence was cited. Without it, accusations are groundless.

Yet the Times claimed that “evidence…piled up this week (indicating that) an elite Russian intelligence agency” was behind reported hacking (sic) that perhaps didn’t occur, surely not by Russia.

Where’s the verified evidence? None was cited by Washington, the Times and other media.

Spreading lies, Big Lies, and damn lies is standard practice when these accusations are made — pointing always at US adversaries.

CIA-connected WaPo headlined:

“The massive cyber spy campaign against the U.S. government is grave and ongoing…and Russia…clearly behind it (sic).”

The WSJ headlined:

“Computer Hack Blamed on Russia Tests Limits of US Response,” adding:

Neocon US Senator “Dick Durbin called the (alleged hacking) a declaration of war (sic).”

Axios mimicked Durbin’s Big Lie, headlining: “Russian Hacks Acts of War (sic).”

WaPo pseudo-journalist Fareed Zakaria tweeted:

“Russia hasn’t just hacked our computer systems (sic). It’s hacked our minds (sic).”

The latest widely proliferated fake news about Russia surely won’t be the last time it’s smeared  by false accusations.

Whenever these claims surface about nations unwilling to sacrifice their sovereign rights to a higher power in Washington, ignore them.

They’re baseless mind-manipulating propaganda — fake news by US dark forces and their press agent media against all sovereign independent nations.

Real threats don’t exist so they have to be invented to throw trillions of dollars at the US military, industrial, security complex — along with Wall Street and other corporate favorites.

It comes at the expense of a nation that’s safe and fit to live in.

It’s long gone, perhaps never to return.

Dystopian totalitarian rule replaced it, enforced with police state harshness.

A Final Comment

After briefed on an alleged Russian cyberattack, Trump tweeted the following:

“The cyber hack is far greater in the fake news media than in actuality.” 

“I have been fully briefed and everything is well under control.” 

“Russia, Russia, Russia is the priority chant when anything happens because lamestream is, for mostly financial reasons, petrified of discussing the possibility that it may be China (it may!).” 

“There could also have been a hit on our ridiculous voting machines during the election, which is now obvious that I won big, making it an even more corrupted embarrassment for the USA.”

No evidence was presented to show any hacking occurred, nothing pointing fingers at Russia, China, or any other foreign countries.
