The Army will no longer rotate tank brigades to South Korea beginning this fall, the service acknowledged in a press release Thursday afternoon.

Instead, the Army will now rotate a Stryker brigade combat team to Korea every nine months. It will also maintain the existing armored brigade combat team’s worth of tanks and equipment on the peninsula in a similar manner to the pre-positioned tank stocks in Europe that allowed a tank brigade to rapidly deploy out of Fort Stewart, Georgia, in response to Russia’s renewed invasion of Ukraine.

A German journalist living in eastern Ukraine’s Donbas region has been criminally charged by the German government for interviewing Ukrainian citizens and reporting her findings.

Independent reporter, 28-year-old Alina Lipp, moved to the Donbas area six months ago, where she transmits first-hand information to her audience in German, Russian, and English from her telegram channel.

Lipp claims she is only doing what any journalist would do — interviewing citizens and documenting what is happening around her.

The journalist explained she is “doing interviews with people in Donetsk and merely translating them into German.”

“I am simply filming everything I see around,” Lipp added.

She inquired rhetorically “what is it that’s illegal in that, or dangerous?”

The United States Space Force has activated a new unit that is tasked with providing "critical intelligence on threat systems, foreign intentions and activities in the space domain." 

Pentagon leaders have said that the creation of this new unit is critical for shaping the future of the Space Force's innovation and technology acquisition.

The new unit, known as Space Delta 18, will be tasked with identifying threats to the United States' space assets, both kinetic and non-kinetic. "Kinetic" in this sense refers to threats that can physically damage or degrade U.S. satellites and other assets, while "non-kinetic" generally refers to anti-satellite weapons that use directed energy, signal jamming or other means to disrupt a satellite's operations.

If the Regime’s broader purpose in hyping the so-called January 6 “insurrection” is to cast all Trump supporters as de facto domestic terrorists, its more urgent and immediate purpose is to kneecap the political prospects of Trump and his allies as the 2024 elections approach.

That the overhyped January 6 Committee hearings turned out to be a major ratings flop may not therefore ultimately matter, depending on the Committee’s success in pressuring its audience of one, Attorney General Merrick Garland, to pursue criminal charges against the former President. Garland himself took the ominous step of noting that he is watching the hearings and he can “assure us that all of the January 6 prosecutors are watching all the hearings as well.”

Voter fraud is real,”a new ad by Fix California says. “Too many on the left won’t investigate the cases.”

In August, Torrance, CA police were called about a man passed out in his car in a 7-Eleven parking lot. Police found a gun, drugs and stolen mail, including 300 unopened vote-by-mail ballots for the upcoming recall election. ABC 7 reported, “The man was taken into custody, but has since been released on his own recognizance. Police still don’t know how he obtained the ballots and what his intent was.”

The Globe contacted a Los Angeles County Assistant District Attorney and asked whatever happened to the guy arrested for being passed out in his car with the 300 ballots? Do we even know who he is? Was the ballot issue ever addressed?

The answer: “No idea.”

New York has adopted a sweeping gun control law aiming to ban firearms from a number of “sensitive areas,” including Times Square, also requiring social media checks for gun permit applicants to ensure their “character and conduct.”

The Democrat-sponsored bill advanced through the New York legislature during a special session on Friday, with Governor Kathy Hochul signing it soon after.

“This to me is the embodiment of what it means to be an American,” Hochul said of the law soon after it passed the state Senate, adding she would sign it “in honor of our Fourth of July weekend.”

The law bans guns from a long list of “sensitive areas” around the Empire State, such as popular tourist sites in New York City, as well as schools, libraries, universities, government buildings, playgrounds and parks, public transit and stadiums. Residents will also no longer be allowed to carry firearms into private businesses unless the owners post clear signage stating it is permitted.

A more controversial measure in the bill requires those looking to obtain a gun permit to send the government “a list of former and current social media accounts… from the past three years” in order to confirm the “applicant’s character and conduct.” Additionally, they will be made to submit at least four “character references” who can “attest to the applicant’s good moral character.”

The bill was passed during a special legislative session called after the US Supreme Court shot down a century-old gun control law in New York last week. While the provision forced permit-seekers to demonstrate that they required a gun for self-defense, the court concluded that it violated the 14th Amendment “by preventing law-abiding citizens with ordinary self-defense needs from exercising their right to keep and bear arms in public.”

More than one quarter of US residents feel so estranged from their government that they feel it might “soon be necessary to take up arms” against it, a poll released on Thursday claimed.

This survey of 1,000 registered US voters, published by the University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics (IOP), also revealed that most Americans agree the government is “corrupt and rigged against everyday people like me”.

The data suggests that extreme polarization in US politics – and its impact on Americans’ relationships with each other – remain strong. These statistics come as a congressional committee is holding public hearings on the January 6 insurrection.

The West supplies arms to world's largest illegal market

On Thursday, Ukrainian media reported that a member of the Kharkiv Territorial Defence battalion posted an ad on the Internet selling weapons and grenades. He found a buyer in Odessa. However, the police appeared during the meeting, which caused the seller to throw a grenade at the officers.

According to the Global Organized Crime Index, Ukraine is one of the largest illegal arms markets with "few barriers" and "millions of small arms and light weapons". Its role has only strengthened with the outbreak of the conflict in eastern Ukraine, experts warn.

Washington alone has already supplied or promised military equipment to Ukraine, including:

  • 7,000 FGM-148 Javelin third-generation anti-tank systems;
  • at least 200 Stinger man-portable air defense systems;
  • hundreds of Switchblade kamikaze drones,
  • 7,000 assault rifles with 50 million rounds,
  • laser-guided missiles and radar systems for detecting drones and adjusting artillery fire,
  • HIMARS high precision missile systems.
  • The full list of all weapons that the West supplies to Ukraine is enormous.

These weapons will soon appear in Europe and other continents.

Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin and the state’s GOP-controlled General Assembly will take $10 million in college money away from illegal aliens and give it to blacks who attend historically black colleges and universities. The money was intended for illegals with DACA status; i.e., Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which President Obama set up for illegal-alien kids [Virginia budget to move funding from DACA students to state’s HBCUs, by Danielle Douglas-Gabriel, Washington Post, June 21, 2022].

George Washington University officials announced the school will retire the “Colonials” name used by its athletic teams, citing “division among the community about the moniker.”

The name will remain in use until the university introduces a new one, planned for the 2023-24 academic year.

A George Washington University special committee found that “the university community is sharply divided” over the nickname, “with an almost 50/50 overall split. Alumni were “somewhat more in favor” of keeping the name “Colonials” than current students.

“For supporters, the term refers to those who lived in the colonies, especially
those who fought for independence against England and, with bravery, courage, and
against all odds, secured democracy for the United States. It embodies the spirit of George Washington,” the committee’s report said. “For opponents, ‘Colonials’ means colonizers (both here and abroad) and refers to those who stole land from indigenous groups, plundered their resources, murdered and exiled Native peoples, and introduced slavery into the colonies.”

In Austria the massive harm done to human life and health done by the Covid “vaccines” has resulted in the Austrian Minister of Health shifting responsibility to doctors who betrayed their medical responsibility to inform patients of the risks of the vaccine.

Of course, had doctors done so, they would have been punished for “spreading misinformation.” It was the Austrian government that tried to mandate coercive vaccination of every Austrian.

In truth, the “Covid pandemic” was an exercise in massive disinformation by “health authorities,” aka marketing agents for Big Pharma, incompetent, mindless politicians, and a whore media that lied through its teeth and continues to do so.

Now that the Austrian Health Minister has shifted responsibility to medical doctors, how much longer can the utterly corrupt US “public health system” deny that there are massive “vaccine” injuries?

When the Supreme Court Struck Down The Restrictive New York Gun Licensing Law, it was an important reiteration of 2nd Amendment protections. But the battles will continue at the state level and the lower federal courts, because the opponents of the 2nd Amendment are hard at work, including in Rhode Island, to deprive citizens of their constitutional rights. DOJ already has signaled that it will do whatever it can to limit the impact of the SCOTUS ruling.

One aspect of the SCOTUS ruling that is underreported is that in orders entered by the Court in other cases, it vacated anti-2nd Amendment lower court decisions and remanded for further proceedings. Some of those cases involved the types of limitations, e.g. on magazine capacity and age, that are at the core of efforts to undermine the SCOTUS decision in blue states.

The Gun Rights Foundation has a good summary:

The Supreme Court just struck down four anti-gun lower court rulings:

As the United States fractures internally (Roe v Wade overturned, economy, military spending, etc.), president Joe Biden and his NATO cronies continue to pursue a sanctions regime-and NATO expansion-against Russia that is having the ironic effect of damaging the economies of Europe and the United States, and the ability of the US to wage war. That reality seems to have reached everyone in the world except the dolts who lead the Western nations.

It truly is astonishing to watch the G-7 and NATO summits which are theaters of the absurd; meetings of rouge bandits laughing away while their policies lead to death and destruction on a global scale. Highway robbery does not describe adequately what the US-Europe have done with Russian foreign assets or those of other nations (Iran, Venezuela, Afghanistan) at the receiving end of the US sanctions regime. Further, as the United States and its NATO puppets continue to punish Russia for its military activities in Ukraine, the end result of the deadly gambit is to send to the slaughter more Ukrainians as Russia methodically moves to liberate Luhansk and Donetsk, and fortify its gains in the south of Ukraine.

The US biolaboratories, created outside the national territory, have actually become NATO’s military facilities, the State Duma' deputy speaker, Irina Yarovaya, told the lower house of parliament on Thursday. Yarovaya, a co-chair of the parliamentary commission investigating US biological laboratories in Ukraine, warned that those labs might be used for unpredictable bacteriological attacks.

"In the light of the latest statements made yesterday by [NATO Secretary-General Jens] Stoltenberg, as well as by NATO officials who list Russia among their enemies, we can say with certainty that their statements about the creation of additional NATO military infrastructure starting from 2014 were a reference to the facilities that have emerged in Ukraine. The US military biological laboratories are actually NATO’s military facilities," Yarovaya stressed.

She warned that they posed a special danger to Russia and its allies, because "they operate under the veil of tight secrecy and, undoubtedly, can be used at any moment as a testing ground for unpredictable and unforeseen bacteriological attacks."

"The United States has displayed particular interest in pathogens that are exotic and uncommon in Ukraine, such as the Ebola virus, Zika virus and smallpox. Undoubtedly, such interest is explained by the wish to conduct analysis, to probe into the possibility of assessing risks during real US military operations on the territory of Ukraine," Yarovaya said.

Permanent US presence in Poland

On Wednesday, US President Joe Biden announced that Washington would create a permanent headquarters for its Army V Corps in Poland in response to threats coming from Moscow after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Referring to the decision, Poland’s top diplomat said: “It’s the beginning of the creation of permanent bases in our part of Europe.”

Covid-19 did not come out of some natural reservoir but rather “out of US lab biotechnology” in an accident, world-renowned economist and author Jeffrey Sachs has claimed, speaking at a conference hosted by the GATE Center think tank in Spain in mid-June.

While introducing this “provocative statement,” Sachs suggested that he was in the loop, as he chairs the Covid-19 commission at prestigious medical journal The Lancet.

So it’s a blunder, in my view, of biotech, not an accident of a natural spillover,” he reiterated.

The United States Supreme Court will be hearing a major case on election integrity that promises to strip away the ability of states to rig elections via the courts or executive decrees.

The case, known as Moore v. Harper, is docketed to be heard in the nation’s highest court next session. It concerns the “independent state legislature” theory, which holds that the Constitution only gives the power to the state legislative branches to change election laws — an obvious point of concern with 2020 election integrity in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin, among other states.

The court is poised to determine the question: “Whether a State’s judicial branch may nullify the regulations governing the ‘Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives . . . prescribed . . . by the Legislature thereof,” U.S. CONST. art. I, § 4, cl. 1, and replace them with regulations of the state courts’ own devising, based on vague state constitutional provisions purportedly vesting the state judiciary with power to prescribe whatever rules it deems appropriate to ensure a ‘fair’ or ‘free’ election.”

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was so distraught over the Supreme Court finally taking up the case that she lashed out by calling it a ‘judicial coup.’ Former President Bill Clinton said people should be ‘panic-stricken.’ However, the case points towards the opposite conclusion: It would restore power to the people in the elected state legislatures to prevent rogue judges and authoritarian executives to undermine the will of the people.
