IS A LARGER MIDDLE EAST WAR IMMINENT?

Warning bells are going off in the international community about an imminent attack by Iran on Israel. If it comes, it won’t come be because Iran was unprovoked, as Israel has been provoking Iran into an attack for the last three years by its regular bombing of Iranian bases in Syria, which so far has not worked. Seemingly to increase the provocation, In the first week of April, Israel bombed Iran’s embassy in Damascus, which is a clear violation of diplomatic immunity and which no nation does including in wartime out of respect to other nation’s diplomatic missions. This bombing provocation went even further than violating embassy sovereignty by Israel killing several of Iran’s high ranking military officers which were meeting in an embassy annex at the time. Israel could not have known about this meeting without high level penetration of Iranian and Syrian governments by Israeli spies. So, just as the war on Hamas was started by inviting the attack by the IDF pulling out most of its soldiers from Southern Israel and leaving it wide open and vulnerable, Israel is apparently itching for a fight with Iran by provoking it. In short, if war comes, Israel will be just as responsible for it as Iran. To receive a free one-time copy of the brief along with options on how to subscribe, click on Request a Sample on the left.

Biden Tells Bibi: US Will Not Support A Counterattack Against Iran After Hundreds Of Drones, Missiles Sent

Zerohedge

...Live visuals have shown projectiles falling on Israel. Iran is now very publicly saying the matter has "concluded": IRAN’S UN MISSION: “Iran’s military action was in response to the Zionist regime’s aggression against our diplomatic premises in Damascus. The matter can be deemed concluded. However, should the Israeli regime make another mistake, Iran’s response will be considerably more severe. It is a conflict between Iran and the rogue Israeli regime, from which the U.S. MUST STAY AWAY!” From Israel's perspective, Iran has now crossed a red line, and Netanyahu is likely to now see himself as having carte blanche to take out Iran nuclear facilities.

CDC Study Doesn’t ‘Debunk’ Link Between COVID-19 Vaccines and Sudden Deaths

The authors failed to note that a much larger, peer-reviewed study from South Korea confirmed vaccine-induced myocarditis caused eight sudden cardiac deaths (SCDs), all among people younger than 45.

Scandal Rocks Biden's Labor Dept For Lying About Sharing Non-Public Inflation Data With Secret Group Of Wall Street "Super Users"

Congress Bribes Itself To Renew Dystopian FISA 'Sham Reforms' That Actually 'Codify Status Quo'

ZeroHedge

What's more, critics say the RISAA essentially codifies surveillance abuses into law. Under Section 702 of the FISA, the government is authorized to gather foreigners' communications if they have been flagged in connection with national security matters. The communications can be gathered even if the target was speaking about, or with, Americans. "Speaker of the House Mike Johnson claims that RISAA reflects a compromise," reads a joint statement from the Electronic Privacy Information Center, the Brennan Center for Justice and Freedomworks. "In reality, this bill is not a ‘compromise,’ and its 56 ‘reforms’ codify the unacceptable status quo."

Islands That Climate Alarmists Said Would Soon “Disappear” Due to Rising Sea Found to Have Grown in Size

The Daily Sceptic

An amount of land equivalent to the Isle of Wight has been added to the shorelines of 13,000 islands around the world in just the last 20 years. This fascinating fact of a 369.67 square kilometre increase has recently been discovered by a group of Chinese scientists analysing both surface and satellite records. Overall, land was lost during the 1990s, but the scientists found that in the study period of three decades to 2020 there was a net increase of 157.21 km2. The study observed considerable natural variation in both erosion and accretion. Of course, the findings blow holes in the poster scare run by alarmists suggesting that rising sea levels caused by humans using hydrocarbons will condemn many islands to disappear shortly beneath rising sea levels. By means of such flimsy scare tactics, as we have seen in many other cases, desperate attempts are made to terrify global populations to accept the insanity of the Net Zero collectivisation.

the danger of mRNA technology that is in the mRNA COVID vaccines; it is a bioweapon, it is deadly, it was made to kill

Dr. Paul Alexander

These extra proteins allow the cell to make more copies of the mRNA, resulting in more protein being expressed from a smaller dose” [4]. This bears repeating... these injections do not deliver natural mRNA but a modified version with extended stability which causes the cells of the body to produce unnatural proteins in addition to the spike protein but the true purpose of these proteins and what they are creating is unknown and on a practical level their presence is undisclosed.

RFK Jr Vows Special Counsel To Probe 'Harsh Treatment' Of Jan 6 Defendants

ZeroHedge

The comment capped a rollercoaster couple of days for Kennedy communications about Jan. 6 prosecutions. A campaign fundraising email sent Thursday said the defendants had been "stripped of their constitutional liberties." Four hours later, his campaign press secretary scrambled to say the characterization "[did] not reflect Mr. Kennedy's views," and said it was the work of a marketing firm that has now been fired by the campaign. On Friday, however, Kennedy issued a statement reaffirming his alarm about how the Department of Justice has proceeded against Jan 6 participants. “I am concerned about the possibility that political objectives motivated the vigor of the prosecution of the J6 defendants, their long sentences and their harsh treatment,” wrote Kennedy.
