Britain’s Greatest Works of Fiction, Including Those by Shakespeare, Flagged as Potential Signs of Far-Right Extremism by Counter-Terror Programme –It said the works of fiction were ‘key texts’ for ‘white nationalists/supremacists’ –The taxpayer-funded document included references to The Lord of the Rings | 17 Feb 2023 | Some of Britain’s most popular sitcoms and greatest works of literature were flagged as potential signs of far-Right extremism by a counter-terror programme. The flagship Prevent scheme, recently the subject of a scathing audit, singled out comedies Yes Minister and The Thick of It, the 1955 epic war film The Dam Busters, and even The Complete Works of William Shakespeare as possible red flags of extremism. It said the works of fiction were “key texts” for “white nationalists/supremacists.” A report by Prevent’s Research Information and Communications Unit (RICU) described how far-Right extremists promoted “reading lists” on online bulletin boards. The taxpayer-funded document included references to The Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien, Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World, Joseph Conrad’s The Secret Agent, 1984by George Orwell and the poems of GK Chesterton. It also referenced films including The Bridge on the River Kwai, The Great Escape and Zulu. [I just put all these (and more) books away on Michael Rectenwald’s shelves! Ten years ago, they were going after Muslims. Now they’re going after Shakespeare.]

3 Separate Oil Facilities Explode in 24 Hours | 25 Feb 2023 | Three oil facilities in separate locations across Mexico and the United States have suffered huge fires after sudden explosions, according to reports. The explosions all occurred in the space of 24 hours. All three facilities, including one in Texas, are controlled by the state-owned Mexican oil company, Petroleos Mexicanos (PEMEX). On Thursday, three separate fires broke out at PEMEX facilities, resulting in the deaths of two workers, Bloomberg reported. At least eight people were also injured and several others are missing. [Here’s more evidence for the coincidence theorists. Surely, there’s no connection between these three explosions of oil facilities. –Michael Rectenwald, author of The Great Reset and the Struggle for Liberty.]

Mysterious White Dust Blankets Parts of West Virginia, Virginia, and Maryland | 24 Feb 2023 | Parts of West Virginia and Maryland were blanketed with a mysterious fine white dust late Thursday evening and into early Friday morning. The Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia appeared to be hit the hardest, but there were also photos and videos being posted from as far as Winchester, Virginia, and Hagerstown, Maryland. A Facebook page that tracks emergencies in the Panhandle, Eastern Panhandle Working Fires, was early to post about the dust. “Call 911!! Per The WV Dept of Environmental Protection, they have requested that anybody experiencing these issues call 911 immediately and have their local fire department respond. They also advise to shut doors and windows and avoid outdoors at this time as a common sense approach until it can be identified,” a post on the page read.

Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky Shut Down Water Intakes After Train Derailment –Butyl acrylate was believed to have seeped into the Ohio River. | 20 Feb 2023 | Utilities in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky shut Ohio River water intake valves early Sunday morning over concerns about contamination by hazardous materials from a train that derailed in East Palestine, Ohio. The two utilities, Greater Cincinnati Water Works (GCWW) and Northern Kentucky Water District (NKWD), said they are taking precautions as testing found at least low levels of chemicals from the toxic spill in some places at intakes along the waterway amid reports of fish dying en masse in local waterways and East Palestine residents reporting ailments such as headaches and rashes…NKWD said in a press release one of the chemicals, butyl acrylate, “was detected at low levels in the Ohio River far upstream of our water supply intakes.” GCWW said low [?] levels of butyl acrylate were believed to have “seeped” into the Ohio River through a creek about 300 miles north of Cincinnati.

President Trump Provides Timeline of Biden and Buttigieg Activities Past 20 Days While Ignoring East Palestine, Ohio | 23 Feb 2023 | One day after President Donald J. Trump visited East Palestine and delivered supplies to the forgotten community, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg was forced to finally step foot in the town and face the people he has long ignored. It has almost been a month since East Palestine suffered its worst tragedy in their history, yet Joe Biden and his administration have neglected to show up with immediate relief. When President Trump announced his trip to meet the people of the community and bring tractor-trailer loads full of essential supplies to help people still affected by the train derailment, the Biden administration curiously sprang into action and approved FEMA resources that were initially rejected. While President Trump forced the inept federal government and Biden to act, here is how Biden and Buttigieg spent the last 20 days ignoring the concerns of the citizens of East Palestine.
Trump orders Big Macs for East Palestine first responders after delivering 13 pallets of food and Trump Water to families ‘betrayed’ by Biden after toxic train disaster –Trump praised the courage of local workers and law enforcement –He brought truckloads of water for the residents reeling from the derailment | 22 Feb 2023 | Donald Trump told residents of East Palestine they are victims of “betrayal” by Joe Biden and the federal government, and said his visit finally sparked them to act during a tour of the toxic train derailment site on Wednesday. The former president greeted crowds furious at the lack of action from the White House, 19 days after the disaster in Ohio, and brought in thousands of bottles of his own water, cleaning supplies and canned food. He then stopped at a local McDonald’s where he ordered Big Macs for first responders and members of his team, and handed out signed MAGA hats to the customers.
Wagner Fighters Took Control of Berkhovka, Near Bakhmut | 24 Feb 2023 | Wagner fighters took control of the village of Barkhovka located on the north-western outskirts of Bakhmut. Before the outbreak of hostilities, about a hundred people lived in Berkhovka. The village is located north of Artemovsk (also known as Bakhmut) and is adjacent to the previously liberated Paraskovievka. The control of the village was claimed by the head if Wagner Yevgeny Prigozhin on February 24. “Berkhovka is completely under our control. The units of the Wagner PMCs fully control Berkhovka.”
Insane in the membrane: Biden Admin Proposes to Block Half of Current Gas Range Models | 25 Feb 2023 | A new regulation proposed by the Department of Energy (DOE) would block half of current gas stove models from the market, an analysis by the federal agency shows. In a proposed regulation published at the beginning of February, DOE set a maximum annual gas consumption of 1,204 thousand British thermal units (kBtu), also known as the EL 2 standard, for all gas cooking tops. If the new regulation is finalized, only half of gas cooking tops will be able to meet the new standard, i.e., half of the products currently on the market will be blocked. “DOE estimates that nearly half of the total gas cooking top market currently achieves EL 2 and therefore would not be impacted by the proposed standard, if finalized,” DOE said in an updated analysis. DOE issued the updated analysis mainly because it excluded certain types of gas cooking tops in the previous analysis that was published on Feb. 1
U.S. Legislators Propose Ban on Central Bank Digital Currency | 24 Feb 2023 | Minnesota Congressman Tom Emmer recently introduced a bill that would ban the Federal Reserve from issuing a central bank digital currency (CBDC) directly to anyone, per a report by Bitcoin Magazine. The bill is titled the “CBDC Anti-Surveillance State Act” and outlines the following: “Except as specifically authorized under this Act, a Federal Reserve bank may not offer products or services directly to an individual, or maintain an account on behalf of an individual, or issue a central bank digital currency directly to an individual.” The bill adds: “The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and the Federal Open Market Committee may not use any central bank digital currency to implement monetary policy.” In a tweet he posted on February 22, Emmer stated: “Any digital version of the dollar must uphold our American values of privacy, individual sovereignty, and free market competitiveness. Anything less opens the door to the development of a dangerous surveillance tool.”
Tillis, Colleagues Introduce Legislation to Protect American Sovereignty Against World Health Organization (Sen. Thom Tillis Press Release) | 23 Feb 2023 | U.S. Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) and his colleagues introduced the No WHO Pandemic Preparedness Treaty Without Senate Approval Act. This legislation would require any convention or agreement resulting from the work of the World Health Organization’s (WHO) intergovernmental negotiating body be deemed a treaty, requiring the advice and consent of a supermajority of the Senate. The legislation comes as the WHO continues to move the pandemic treaty process forward and is expected to formally present a draft to member states later this month. After the Biden Administration’s failed COVID-19 response and the WHO’s mismanagement of the pandemic, Americans remain skeptical of continuing infringements on personal liberties and freedoms…”The World Health Organization should never have a say in how America handles a response to any crisis, health or otherwise,” said Senator Tillis. “This legislation makes that clear to the Biden Administration and WHO bureaucrats who have continuously refused to hold Communist China accountable for its role in covering up and exacerbating the COVID-19 pandemic.” The full text of the bill is here.
WHO’s Pandemic Accord Will Give It Control Over U.S. Livestock and Food Supply By Klark Barnes | 23 Feb 2023 | …[N]obody is talking about how the accord will give the WHO complete control over agriculture–wild and domesticated animals–and our food supply. The WHO’s incoming chief scientist said on Monday governments should invest in vaccines for all strains of influenza that exist in the animal kingdom in case there’s an outbreak among humans. Jeremy Farhar, who is leaving Wellcome to join the WHO later this year, said during a media briefing in terms of a potential pandemic event, H5N1 is a “big worry.” Farrar warned the H5N1 (avian) influenza viruses are being allowed to circulate among poultry, wild birds, and mammals—and is the perfect way to “create something nasty.” If you read through the 32-page draft of the accord, you’ll see how this document gives the WHO the authority to take control over U.S. agriculture and our food supply: By signing onto the accord, a country acknowledges that “most emerging infectious diseases originate in animals, including wildlife and domesticated animals, then spill over to people.” (See p. 6.) From the outset, they’re laying the foundation that “most infectious diseases” begin in animals; thus, their ability to regulate animals is within their purview.
Some lab-grown meat pushed by WEF and Bill Gates as a remedy for climate change is made of ‘immortalized’ cancer cells – report | 24 Feb 2023 | …While there is a significant push under way for people to surrender steaks, burgers, and hot dogs and instead eat bugs and algae, climate alarmists and elites alike are also hyping so-called synthetic “meat.” This alternative may prove too much to swallow for many consumers in light of the present lack of health data about what such laboratory productions might do to consumers, as well as Bloomberg’s recent report underscoring how synthetic meat is, in many cases, cancer. …In his discussion of cancerous lab meats, Igor Chudov noted on his Substack that the World Economic Forum has also championed the replacement of real meat. The WEF ran an article in 2019 — the same year Israeli start-up Aleph Farms claimed to be the first company to produce a steak in a lab — entitled, “You will be eating replacement meats within 20 years. Here’s why,” which claimed lab meats could be created more efficiently and had “fewer product risks than conventional meat.”
German health minister says ‘new pandemics are certain’ after meeting with Bill Gates, WHO director | 21 Feb 2023 | The German health minister said “new pandemics are certain” and “the only question is: when and are we better prepared then.” Health minister Karl Lauterbach met with billionaire Bill Gates and the director-general of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, during the Munich Security Conference this past weekend. Lauterbach posted a photo of the three of them on Twitter with the following message: With @BillGates and WHO Director General @DrTedros at the Munich Security Conference. New pandemics are certain. The only question is: when and are we better prepared then. That’s what we’ve been working on. [Of course they know new pandemics are certain — they’re creating them.]
CDC confirms 100% of reported Covid-19 vaccine deaths were caused by just 5% of batches produced – the majority were sent to Republican ‘red’ states across the U.S. | 19 Feb 2023 | On October 31, we exclusively revealed how an investigation of the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) found extremely high numbers of adverse reactions and deaths have been reported against specific lot numbers of the Covid-19 vaccines numerous times, meaning deadly batches of the experimental injections have now been identified. That investigation also led to the discovery that 130 different lot numbers of Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine distributed to more than 13 states, harmed on average 639 times more people, hospitalised on average 109 times more people, and killed on average 22 times more people than the 4,289 different lot number of Pfizer vaccine distributed to 12 states or less. However, the most shocking finding of the investigation was that 100% of Covid-19 vaccine deaths reported to VAERS with identified lot numbers had been caused by just 5% of the batches produced. But…we’ve also discovered that the majority of the deadliest batches were clearly sent to Republican-controlled “red” states across the U.S.
Boom: Biden Appoints Member of the Trilateral Commission to Head The World Bank | 24 Feb 2023 | President [sic] Biden is stacking his Administration with current or former members of the Trilateral Commission. Antony Blinken, Secretary of State; Susan Rice, Domestic Policy Advisor; Eric Schmidt, Office of Science and Technology Policy; John Podesta, Green New Deal spending tsar; Ajay Banga, President of the World Bank. When the Trilateral Commission was formed in 1973 by David Rockefeller and Zbigniew Brzezinski, they successfully engineered the takeover of the Carter Administration in order to control the economic engine of the world: The United States. Antony Sutton and I [Patrick Wood] thoroughly documented this in 1978-1981 with our books, Trilaterals Over Washington, Volumes I and II.
Bombshell: Former FBI Agent Pleads Guilty to Destroying Evidence in Case Related to a Republican Lawmaker, Avoids Jail Time | 24 Feb 2023 | A former FBI agent, Robert Cessario, has pleaded guilty to purposely destroying crucial evidence in order to frame a pro-Trump lawmaker from Arkansas. The former agent’s guilty plea was linked to a deal between him and the prosecutors. Cessario was charged with “corrupt destruction of record in an official proceeding” linked with the corruption lawsuit of previous Arkansas Sen. Jon Woods. A federal judge ruled that Cessario would face 36 months of probation for purposely destroying the evidence. The Arkansas Democrat Gazette noted: “Cessario must spend the first six months of probation in home detention, although no electronic monitoring will be required, according to U.S. District Judge P.K. Holmes. Holmes also ordered Cessario to pay a 25,000 fine. Cessario’s presentencing report says federal guidelines would require at least five months in prison…The crime Cessario admitted to…carries a minimum recommended sentence of 10 months in prison. The sentence can be mitigated by cooperation, according to federal guidelines…”
McCarthy gives Tucker Carlson access to trove of Jan. 6 riot tape | 20 Feb 2023 | House Speaker Kevin McCarthy has given Fox News’ Tucker Carlson exclusive access to 41,000 hours of Capitol surveillance footage from the Jan. 6 riot, McCarthy sources tell me. Carlson TV producers were on Capitol Hill last week to begin digging through the trove, which includes multiple camera angles from all over Capitol grounds. Excerpts will begin airing in the coming weeks. McCarthy told reporters in Statuary Hall last month that he thinks “the American public should actually see all [that] happened instead of a report that’s written [on] a political basis.” Pushing for the release of the footage, Carlson argued on his show last month that Washington has “a regime of secrecy and deceit.”
Zuckerberg-funded group violated Georgia law with $2M for elections board – watchdog –Two Georgia officials told Fox News Digital that investigation has been opened | 24 Feb 2023 | A Georgia elections board may have violated state law when it accepted 2 million from a Mark Zuckerberg-linked group, a watchdog group claimed in a letter obtained by Fox News Digital. The Honest Elections Project is calling for an investigation into the DeKalb County Board of Registration and Elections for a “flagrant and egregious” violation of a state ban on private funding that was put in place after accusations that donors used m-ney to push left-wing influence ahead of the 2020 elections. The funding in question originated from the U.S. Alliance for Election Excellence, the project said in a letter last week calling for a probe by the state attorney general, secretary of state and state elections board.
Oklahoma Senate Moves to Ensure Only U.S. Citizens Are Voting in State Elections | 23 Feb 2023 | The Oklahoma Senate scored a major win for election integrity on Wednesday after the upper chamber passed legislation making it more difficult for illegal aliens to vote in state elections. Under SB 377, county court clerks would be permitted to compile a monthly list of individuals “excused from jury duty for not being a citizen of the United States and provide the list to the secretary of the county election board.” Once acquired, the local election board secretary is then mandated to “cancel the registration of each registered voter included on the list” and “report the person or persons to the district attorney and the United States attorney for the county.”
