IN SHOCKING MOVE, THE VACCINATED IN ISRAEL WILL BECOME UNVACCINATED AND LOSE THEIR GREEN PASS IF THEY REFUSE TO BEGIN RECEIVING COVID BOOSTER SHOTS

by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:

The booster will become a requirement for a Green Pass when the shot is available to everyone aged 12 and older. “The Green Pass testifies that a person is safe in a certain way,” he added. “So the moment we know that the vaccine loses its effectiveness after a certain period, there’s no justification for giving a green pass to someone who hasn’t gotten another dose.” Nevertheless, he said, the booster will become a requirement for a Green Pass only when the shot is available to everyone aged 12 and older. Currently, only people aged 30 and up qualify for the third dose.
In Israel, people who do not receive COVID-19 booster shots will eventually be denied a Green Pass, which allows entry into various venues, Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz said on Tuesday.

Afghanistan: A Tragically Stupid War Comes to a Tragic End

by Ron Paul, Ron Paul Institute:

Sunday’s news reports that the Biden Administration mistakenly killed nine members of one Afghan family, including six children, in “retaliation” for last week’s suicide attack which killed 13 US servicemembers, is a sad and sick epitaph on the 20 year Afghanistan war.

Promising to “get tough” on ISIS, which suddenly re-emerged to take responsibility for the suicide attack, the most expensive military and intelligence apparatus on earth appears to have gotten it wrong. Again.

Interventionists love to pretend they care about girls and women in Afghanistan, but it is in reality a desperate attempt to continue the 20-year US occupation. If we leave, they say, girls and women will be discriminated against by the Taliban.

Russia, Saudi Arabia Sign Military Pact amid Biden Chaos in Afghanistan

by Ben Whedon, Breitbart:

Saudi and Russian officials Tuesday announced the signing of military cooperation pact between the two countries.

Saudi Defense Minister Khalid bin Salman announced the agreement via Twitter, stating it would aid in “developing joint military cooperation between the two countries.” In a second tweet, he elaborated on his meeting with his Russian counterpart, Sergey Shoygu, in which the pair explored ways to “strengthen the military and defense cooperation between our two countries.”

‘Humanitarian Disaster’: U.S. Shelters For Afghan Evacuees Rat-Infested, ‘Awash With Loose Feces,’ Report Says

by Tim Pearce, The Daily Caller:

The Biden administration is struggling to house and process thousands of refugees coming out of Afghanistan following the Taliban’s conquest of the country.

Afghan evacuees’ living conditions at Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar are “awash with loose feces and urine and a rat infestation,” according to U.S. Central Command emails obtained by Axios.

Israel’s Secret Arsenal: It’s Not So Secret Anymore

by Philip Giraldi, Strategic Culture:

Israel has been allowed to get away with massive espionage directed against the U.S. and the theft of material and technology, Phil Giraldi writes.

Few Americans are aware of the fact that no U.S. government official, to include congressmen, can in any way mention or discuss Israel’s nuclear arsenal, which is estimated by some observers to consist of as many as 200 tactical nuclear weapons which can be delivered on target by air, land or sea. The prohibition is spelled out in a Department of Energy “classification bulletin” graded Secret, which was issued on September 6, 2012 and bears the file number WPN-136. The subject line reads “Guidance on Release of information Relating to the Potential for an Israeli Nuclear Capability.” It would be interesting to learn exactly how the text of the memo reads, but in spite of repeated attempts to obtain a copy under the Freedom of Information Act, the entire body of the document is completely blacked out.

Even the New York Times Is Blaming Biden for Afghanistan

by Matt Margolis, PJ Media:

Well, now I’ve seen it all. The reliably left-wing rag known as the New York Times isn’t trying to sugarcoat the situation in Afghanistan and is blaming Joe Biden for what’s happening.

“The rapid reconquest of the capital, Kabul, by the Taliban after two decades of a staggeringly expensive, bloody effort to establish a secular government with functioning security forces in Afghanistan is, above all, unutterably tragic,” the editorial board wrote Sunday.

The U.S. Government Lied For Two Decades About Afghanistan

by Glenn Greenwald, Greenwald Substack:

“The Taliban regime is coming to an end,” announced President George W. Bush at the National Museum of Women in the Arts on December 12, 2001 — almost twenty years ago today. Five months later, Bush vowed: “In the United States of America, the terrorists have chosen a foe unlike they have faced before. . . . We will stay until the mission is done.” Four years after that, in August of 2006, Bush announced: “Al Qaeda and the Taliban lost a coveted base in Afghanistan and they know they will never reclaim it when democracy succeeds.  . . . The days of the Taliban are over. The future of Afghanistan belongs to the people of Afghanistan.”

Chinese Troops Increasing Daily Across West Coast, Reservation Land Usage w/ Kevin Annett

Is the US-China rivalry doomed to fall into the Thucydides Trap, meaning that war between them is inevitable?

from RT:

In ancient Greece, a general surmised that war between Athens and Sparta was inescapable because of Spartan fears about the growth of Athenian power. Is what’s happening with Washington and Beijing the 21st century equivalent?

Last week, I covered the development as to why China initially shunned a proposed visit by US Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman to the country. The visit was delayed, but the main points as to why that happened remain and carried over into the subsequent meeting in Tianjin, which mirrored the fiery confrontation that happened in Alaska in March.

In this exchange, China’s deputy foreign minister Xie Feng sternly threw down the law to the US, and his message was clear: China is aggravated by what it perceives as a blatant disrespect for its own interests by a United States who is hell bent on pursuing hegemony and competition against it at all costs.
