Readers will recall that last week’s edition of this column ended on something of an intellectual puzzler. To wit: If the Tiananmen Square Massacre narrative that is routinely used to demonize the Chinese government on the world stage is demonstrably wrong (even by the admission of US diplomats and BBC reporters), then why doesn’t the Chinese government say something?
As I concluded in “The Truth About Tiananmen“:
“This type of silence in the face of attack is unfathomable to the Western mind. When someone is spreading rumors and easily debunkable lies about you, you speak up. You set the record straight. You fight back. You do something . . . don’t you?”
Well, perhaps one key to unlocking this mystery is in the stipulation: The Western mind. We all understand that silence is consent and that anyone who remains silent in the face of accusations is thereby tacitly admitting to their guilt, right? But who is “we”? Does our shared understanding of the meaning of silence come from a specific cultural heritage? And if so, what is the shared understanding of the meaning of silence for the Chinese?

Many Americans seem to think the alerting the public to the problems in the economy is “doom and gloom” and meant as “fear porn.” But regardless of your beliefs on the matter, the numbers show that a crash is coming, and that’s the reality, although a very grim one says Jeremiah Babe.
In a recent video, titled “THE CRASH IS COMING PREPARE – HOMELESSNESS CRISIS – LABOR FORCE WARNING – STOCK MARKET SURGES,” Jeremiah Babetalks about this very lackadaisical mentality much of the U.S. public is experiencing. Whether the public is unconcerned because of the mainstream media’s propaganda or political party blindness, it doesn’t much matter.

A college student-turned pedophile hunter, went undercover to catch child predators online and low and behold—he caught a cop.
San Francisco, CA — A 20-year-old college student named Ethan is making headlines this week after he used a Snapchat filter to go undercover and ensnare pedophiles trying to lure children. He was successful and his catch was a San Mateo cop.
Ethan — who is not using his last name out of fear that police may retaliate — told authorities he had a female friend who had been molested as a child. This was the apparent impetus behind his undercover scheme to go online and catch the predators.

US military intelligence agency the DIA has issued a new statement directly accusing the Russian government of conducting low-yield nuclear tests in the course of developing more advanced nuclear arms.
This is the second time the DIA has suggested Russia was conducting nuclear tests in the past month. The statement today, as with the previous one, came with no evidence that any such testing ever took place.

Our free speech is NOT hate speech and the FIRST Amendment must be defended. And because the mainstream “news” media has done such a deplorable job, we are ALL the Fourth Estate now.

The NXIVM trial will proceed to closing arguments Monday, with both sides resting their cases Friday after weeks of emotional testimony including from the upstate New York cult’s imprisoned sex slaves.
An FBI agent showed jurors Thursday a series of photos of an underage teen sex slave named Camila, alleging that cult leader Keith Raniere — who stands accused of sex trafficking — made pornographic photos of her. Camila was an illegal immigrant trafficked into the cult from Mexico.

5G (5th Generation) is now being actively rolled out in many cities around the world.
Simultaneously, as awareness over its horrific health and privacy impacts is rising, many places are issuing moratoriums on it or banning it, such as the entire nation of Belgium, the city of Vaud (Switzerland) and San Francisco (USA).

I really cannot begin to fathom how stupid you would have to be to believe that Iran would attack a Japanese oil tanker at the very moment that the Japanese Prime Minister was sitting down to friendly, US-disapproved talks in Tehran on economic cooperation that can help Iran survive the effects of US economic sanctions.
The Japanese-owned Kokuka Courageous was holed above the water line. That rules out a torpedo attack, which is the explanation being touted by the neo-cons.
The second vessel, the Front Altair, is Norwegian owned and 50% Russian crewed (the others being Filipinos). It is owned by Frontline, a massive tanker leasing company that also has a specific record of being helpful to Iran in continuing to ship oil despite sanctions.
