Will Congressional Repubs Fund Biden’s Wars?

by Harley Schlanger, LaRouche Organization:

If Donald Trump is an opponent of the endless war policies of the Military-Industrial Complex, he has to move against those in his party — such as Speaker Johnson — who are demanding another $100 billion to fight unnecessary and futile foreign wars, while American taxpayers are watching their cities, infrastructure and physical economy degenerate at an accelerating rate.

WaPo Drops Bombshell On The Nord Stream Pipeline Sabotage Narrative: A Ukrainian Colonel, Covert Ops, & The CIA’s Shadow


from ZeroHedge:

Consider the source (and the timing)…

No lesser deep-state mouthpiece than The Washington Post just dropped a bombshell with the revelation that Ukrainian Colonel Roman Chervinsky “was integral to the brazen sabotage operation” on the Nord Stream pipeline, “according to officials in Ukraine and elsewhere in Europe, as well as other people knowledgeable about the details of the covert operation.”

Biden Moving To Send Long-Range Ballistic Missiles To Ukraine

by Paul Craig Roberts, Paul Craig Roberts:

In one sense the Ukraine conflict is over.  In another sense it is dangerously expanding.

Biden and Putin are taking the path to nuclear war.  Biden by providing long range missiles to Ukraine, and Putin by refusing to use sufficient force to bring the conflict to an end before it spins out of control.  

To again repeat my warning, by allowing the war to drag on, Putin is inviting more provocations and more dangerous provocations.  Putin’s way of fighting the conflict has cost far more lives than a quick and total military victory which would have been over before Western involvement could be organized.

Israel Reopens the Gaza Slaughterhouse

by Chris Edges, The Unz Review:

Phase One of Israel’s genocidal campaign on Gaza has ended. Phase Two has begun. It will result in even higher levels of death and destruction.

The skies over Gaza are filled — after a seven-day truce — with projectiles of death. Warplanes. Attack helicopters. Drones. Artillery shells. Tank shells. Mortars. Bombs. Missiles. Gaza is a cacophony of explosions and forlorn screams and cries for help beneath collapsed buildings. Fear, once again, is coiling itself around every heart in the Gazan concentration camp.

US troops told to prepare for war in Gaza – media


from RT:

Washington maintains that there are no plans to put American boots on the ground

US Air Force personnel in Iraq have been ordered to remain on standby in case of “on ground US involvement in the Israel Hamas war,” The Intercept reported on Tuesday, citing a Pentagon memo.

Circulated earlier this month, the memo instructs an unknown number of troops to be placed “on standby to forward deploy to support troops in the case of on ground US involvement in the Israel Hamas war,” the news site reported. The standby order applies to troops stationed in Iraq since last year, according to a separate Pentagon document seen by The Intercept.

Russia Launches Large Baltic Sea Naval Drills As EU Officials Push “NATO’s Lake” Rhetoric

from ZeroHedge:

Russia has kicked off a major planned naval drill in the Black Sea, dubbed the Ocean Shield-2023 naval exercises, coming after a series of close encounters with NATO in the form of recent aerial intercepts over both the Baltic and Black Seas.

Russia’s somewhat regular drills in these waters are often in response to NATO exercises in the region, in tit-for-tat muscle flexing. Some EU policy wonks have of late begun to call the Baltic “NATO’s lake” in a direct challenge to Moscow.

What You Didn’t Know About Hamas’s October 7th Attack

by Eric Zuesse, The Duran:

I didn’t know much of this, and most of it is entirely new to me, but I believe it from Scott Ritter and from Larry Johnson, both of whom have lived most of their lives in the U.S. military and are extraordinarily knowledgeable about military matters. I believe it coming from them, because I haven’t yet run into even a single statement from either of them that I found to be false when I researched on my own to find out whether it was true or not.

Suspected Chinese Hackers Exploited Microsoft Vulnerabilities to Breach Government Email Systems

by Lucas Nolan, Breitbart:

Hackers believed to be linked to China have exploited vulnerabilities in Microsoft software to breach the email systems at over two dozen organizations, including some U.S. government agencies, as part of a suspected cyber-espionage campaign.

The Wall Street Journal reports that the hackers, identified as “Storm-0558,” exploited a security weakness in Microsoft’s cloud-computing environment to gain access to sensitive computer networks. This development is especially concerning for officials and security researchers, as it is seen as part of a larger espionage campaign that could have compromised valuable U.S. government information.
