by Brad Polumbo, Activist Post:

Out of a population of 25.8 millionfewer than 1,000 Australians have died from COVID-19 to date. The latest uptick in cases, which has sent the country into a panic, is still only resulting in less than 5 deaths per day. Yet the Australian government has responded with a return to its past harsh pandemic restrictions—and is now even bringing in the military to police its citizens’ lockdown compliance.

Hillary Clinton-Linked Lawyer Indicted In Russiagate Probe

from ZeroHedge:

Update (1645ET): A grand jury has indicted Michael Sussmann, the lawyer accused of making false statements during the 2016 presidential campaign to slander then-candidate Donald Trump in the final months of the election.

Sussmann, the indictment charges, “lied about the capacity in which he was providing … allegations to the FBI” of potential cyber links between a Russian bank and a company owned by former president Donald Trump.

Durham is pursuing a prosecutorial theory that Sussmann was secretly representing Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, which was a client of Sussmann’s firm, these people said. –Washington Post

Notably, this is far from over as Special Counsel Durham;s office pointed out in the statement that the investigation is “ongoing.”

Media Implosion Occurring Now As Liberal Media Outlets Start Attacking Each Other – The Straw That Broke The Camel’s Back Was The Attack On The Covington Teens

by Susan Duclos, All News Pipeline:

Over the course of the past few years, as we have noted a constant litany of “bombshell” reports from the liberal media complex that have turned into duds as anonymous sources have been shown to have lied, media outlets have had to backtrack, change, delete and offer editor’s notes and corrections, we have seen conservatives, here in our comment section, on social media and forums, asking, when is enough, enough and when will these irresponsible fake news pushers be held accountable?

US Failure to Accept Reality an Existential Threat to Us All

by James ONeill, New Eastern Outlook:

Russia’s Prime Minister Dimitry Medvedev recently declared that the latest round of US sanctions to be imposed on Russia constituted “economic warfare” and that Russia would respond “economically, politically, or in any other way, if required.” One is tempted to ask: why has it taken so long?

Russia has been the subject of what Andrew Korybko calls “hybrid warfare” for decades. The only post World War 2 period when there was a lessening of the attacks was during the Yeltsin years in the 1990s. That period, when Russia’s economy was pillaged, was even more catastrophic for Russia than the sanctions and relentless negative propaganda that has ensued ever since.

The hybrid warfare, of which the sanctions are only a part, are a substitute for actual hot war which the neocon elements in successive American administrations have never taken off their agenda. That also is not a recent phenomenon.

Want To Survive The Coming Squeeze? With Food Shortages Ahead And Food Prices Set For Massive Escalation, This Is Why Preppers Are Much Better Geared For Survival

by Susan Duclos, All News Pipeline:

The damage from the massive flooding in the midwest isn’t only affecting farmers, many of which say they may not be able to overcome the severe losses, but trickles down to consumers as expected food shortages will cause an extreme increase in prices at the grocery store across the nation.

Agriculture Secretary Sunny Purdue estimates that up to a million calves have been lost to the flooding, from what Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts calls the “most widespread disaster we have had in our state’s history.”  While losses are still being tallied, initial estimates by Nebraska Department of Agriculture are expected to exceed $400 million in crops and more than $400 million in lost livestock. Those numbers are projected to rise.

Let Them Eat Cake: Maskless Pelosi, ‘Elite’ Lib Donors Served by POC Staff in Masks

by Brad Slager, Townhall:

It seems bad optics is a Democrat brand, as Queen Nancy displays the height of privilege.

The visuals alone would be impressively bad, based alone on the years of racial identity politics being played by Democrats. But once you layer in the politicization of the pandemic for over a year, and the way this past month you have heard from Democrats and media figures about how Republicans are actively trying to kill their own citizens, things appear even more outlandish.

BOUNTYGATE: Scapegoating Systemic Military Failure in Afghanistan

by Scott Ritter, Consortium News:

The story of the alleged “bounty scheme” grew up in the context of top U.S. brass blaming Russia for America’s defeat in Afghanistan, says Scott Ritter.

On the morning of Feb. 27, Beth Sanner, the deputy director of national intelligence for mission integration, arrived at the White House carrying a copy of the Presidential Daily Brief (PDB), a document which, in one form or another, has been made available to every president of the United States since Harry Truman first received what was then known as the “Daily Summary” in February 1946.

New York Times Publishes Photo of Girl Killed by Israelis Who Was Also Killed by Israelis in 2017

by Robert Spencer, PJ Media:

It was supposed to be heartbreaking: on Friday, the New York Times published a front-page series of photos with the headline “They Were Just Children,” little Palestinian Arab children who had supposedly been murdered by the evil Israeli war machine during the latest round of Hamas jihad attacks. The only problem was that one of the photos, prominently featured on the top row, was of a little girl whom Palestinian Arab propagandists, using the very same photo, had reported murdered by the Israelis in January 2017. It was just the latest example of the fact that Israel’s atrocities are so many and so brazen that Palestinians have to fabricate evidence of them – and the establishment media eagerly plays along.
