NEWS ( VIRUS EDITION )
Biden’s Other Unwinnable War – “We might as well replace crush the virus with drive the Taliban out of public life in Afghanistan. Some things government can do; others it cannot do. It is long past time to hear an American president recognize that. Now that recognition needs a domestic application as well. ” – Jeffrey A. Tucker
First Afghanistan, then COVID – “So what does the botched Afghan bug-out have to do with COVID? Plenty. Tucker Carlson said that we as a country are led by “buffoons.” That’s obvious. And it should also be obvious by now that the people running the national health establishment are cut from the same cloth as those buffoons running the foreign affairs establishment. Anthony Fauci is their frontman. That’s all he is. Fauci is a cutout figurehead, the same as the installed president, Joe Biden. On COVID, one day the message is this, and the next day, it’s that.” – Peter Skurkiss
Biden Regime Advancing Tyranny Unannounced – “Fantasy democracy USA was never beautiful, never the indispensable state, never the land of the free and home of the brave. Mind-manipulating, media-promoted official narrative propaganda created a nation of over-entertained, uninformed know-nothings about what most affects public health, well-being and fundamental freedoms. Unannounced and unnoticed by most Americans, the Biden regime has been advancing tyranny in the country since usurping power by brazen fraud. According to AP News, the Biden regime is “weighing options to be more assertive at the state and local level” on all things flu/covid — notably for mandating health-destroying jabs and wearing masks that don’t protect. White House mass-jabbing proponent Ben Wakana was quoted, saying the above is “the right lever (sic) at the right time (sic).”” – Stephen Lendman
U.S. to Recommend Booster Shots for Most Americans 8 Months After Second Dose – “The Biden administration plans to offer Americans a third COVID booster dose by mid-September assuming Pfizer receives full FDA approval by then, despite health officials last month saying there wasn’t enough data to recommend a third dose.” – Megan Redshaw
Leaky Vaccines, Super-spreads, and Variant Acceleration – “Imperfect vaccines can make a virus more prevalent and more deadly. some questions on covid vaccines and their policy implications.” – El Gato Malo

The Right to Bodily Integrity: Nobody Wins and We All Lose in the COVID-19 Showdown – “Yet be warned: we will all lose if this pandemic becomes a showdown between COVID-19 vaccine mandates and the right to bodily integrity. It doesn’t matter what your trigger issue is—whether it’s vaccines, abortion, crime, religion, immigration, terrorism or some other overtly politicized touchstone used by politicians as a rallying cry for votes—we should all be concerned when governments and businesses (i.e., the Corporate State) join forces to compel individuals to sacrifice their right to bodily integrity (which goes hand in hand with the right to conscience and religious freedom) on the altar of so-called safety and national security. That’s exactly what’s unfolding right now, with public and private employers using the threat of termination to force employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19.” – John W. Whitehead & Nisha Whitehead
Serious News For Serious People: Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix – “The fact that the mass media continually seek out expert foreign policy analysis from warmongers who’ve been consistently wrong about everything for decades is by itself enough reason to fully dismiss them.” – Caitlin Johnstone – MORE GOOD OBSERVATIONS FROM CAITLIN!!!!
Biden Team Admits There Are No Plans to Rescue Americans Trapped Outside of Kabul – “The Biden team also told Americans who are in Kabul now that they have to figure out their own way to get to the airport and through the Taliban.” – Nick Arama – MORE INCOMPETENCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Kamala Harris tries to flee Joe Biden’s sinking ship – “Is Kamala Harris jumping ship? Sure looks like it, now that Congress is talking up the 25th Amendment to remove doddering Joe Biden from office for incapacitation amid the biggest foreign policy catastrophe since the Saigon embassy rooftop evacuation of 1975. Suddenly, Kamala doesn’t seem to want to be anywhere near old Joe. With a tin ear of her own, Harris has refused to cancel her long-planned trip to Vietnam, home of the actual Saigon, and certainly a place where the topic of Afghanistan is going to be brought up.” – Monica Showalter – SERIOUSLY, SHOULDN’T SHE BE MORE CONCERNED WITH HELPING GETTING PEOPLE OUT OF THE COUNTRY. THE TOTAL DISCONNECT OF THIS ADMINISTRATION IS UNBELIEVABLE!!!!
EXCLUSIVE: FBI Knew Of Hunter Biden’s Missing Laptop As Early As December 2019 – “The FBI had knowledge that a second laptop had been stolen from Hunter Biden and that laptop contained material making the Biden family a national security risk, subject to Russian influence.” – Margot Cleveland
Is The Nation Prepared For Terror Crossing The Southern Border? – “A former Border Patrol chief has an urgent warning about the migrant crisis. While the administration did not give a reason for ousting Scott, its lax approach to border security is clearly at odds with a Border Patrol leader who takes a more hawkish approach to the matter. Either way, if the White House does not take the action necessary to prevent terrorists from crossing the southern border, it might have yet another crisis on its hands.” – Jeff Charles
6 Questions we NEED to ask about Afghanistan – “So, what’s REALLY going on? Is the apparent Taliban “victory” masking the true narrative? WHAT ABOUT THE HEROIN? But the idea that heroin benefits the Taliban, and the US wants to put an end to it is a myth. Afghan heroin is, and always has been, a US/Deep State/corporate enterprise to the bone.” – Kit Knightly
Like It or Not, Taliban Is Afghanistan’s True Independence Movement – “After 20 years of B-52 carpet bombing of Afghanistan, murderous drone strikes, 350,000 puppet soldiers, 20,000 mercenaries, nearly two trillion dollars in US spending, destruction of countless Afghan villages, the killing up to one million Afghans, spreading the opium trade around southeast Asia and Europe, abetting wide scale torture…. after all this the US-run Afghan’s puppet `president’ and his drug-dealing cronies have fled embattled Kabul like thieves in the night. Taliban – more accurately the Islamic Movement of Afghanistan – has been slandered by almost every western news outlet and wrongly called a terrorist movement linked to the late Osama bin Laden” – Eric Margolis
How Russia-China are stage-managing the Taliban – “Sharp US observers are remarking, half in jest, that the Taliban in only one sitting answered more real questions from US media than POTUS since January. What this first press conference reveals is how the Taliban are fast absorbing essential P.R. and media lessons from Moscow and Beijing, emphasizing ethnic harmony, the role of women, the role of diplomacy, and deftly defusing in a single move all the hysteria raging across NATOstan” – Pepe Escobar
An Elite Con Job – “But today, we wonder: What else are they lying about? COVID-19 vaccines? Inflation? The economy? The green agenda? Yes, Dear Reader, it’s amazing what you can’t see when you’re paid to be blind. And for a long time – 20 years, in the case of Afghanistan – you can keep the fantasy intact. Then, in just a few days, it collapses like a punctured balloon. Anyone could have foreseen the whole 20-year fiasco… all they had to do was read about Afghanistan on Wikipedia. The country was invented by Europeans. But it is inhabited by dozens of different tribes – Pashtun, Tajik, Hazara, Uzbek, Aimaq, Turkmen, Baloch, Pashai, Nuristani, Gujjar, Arab, Brahui, Qizilbash, Pamiri, Kyrgyz, Sadat – each with its own language, religion, culture… and deep grudges against the others. Building a U.S.-style democracy was preposterous from the get-go. But who wanted to see that… when there was $2 trillion to be made by pretending not to see it?” – Bill Bonner
The Pentagon and the Generals Wanted This Disastrous War – “So now we reach the stage of figuring out who is to blame for this total strategic failure in Afghanistan. Yes, much of the blame should go to the civilian bureaucrats, because they share an immense amount of the blame in bringing about this strategic blunder. George W. Bush, Donald Rumsfeld, Condoleezza Rice, Paul Wolfowitz, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Madeleine Albright are just a few of the politicos who encouraged the continuation of this lost war. But the fact is the civilian war architects were encouraged and enabled every step of the way by Pentagon bureaucrats (i.e., the generals)” – Ryan McMaken
Afghan Lesson For Uncle Sam’s Running Dogs – “Afghanistan is the most glaring proof of the American treachery. It’s a cautionary tale for others who incredibly still seem trusting in hitching their wagon to a U.S. alliance.” – Finian Cunningham
Training the Afghans (VIDEO) – demillertime – SHORT, LESS THAN A MINUTE. THIS IS WHY THE TALIBAN WON. THANKS TO SIMON BLACK AT SOVEREIGN MAN FOR LINKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Ugly Truth About Gun Control: Why Your Life Isn’t Worth Saving – “But Anti-Gun Lives Matter, Apparently … Unfortunately for those impacted by Bush’s and other anti-gun politicians’ gun-ban schemes and defunding of the police plans, they might not “get to be here” to do their work. You see, most of us don’t have the money to hire an armed, private security team. And, faced with an increasingly dangerous world, we must rely on ourselves, our firearms and the police to keep us safe. Without them, we are in more danger.” – Mark Chesnut
Is Inflation Cooling and Putting in a Top? Could it be that I was wrong? – “To keep it simple: Nope! Not this time anyway. That is, however, what you hear from the wistful market makers who want to see last week’s CPI release as proof inflation was “transitory.” Let me disabuse you of that fantasy entirely.” – David Haggith
A System of Confidence – “Never forget that the current monetary system—the one that has been in place now for 50 years—exists solely upon CONFIDENCE. Remove confidence and you’re left with nothing. So, as just one small recent example, what about the events in Afghanistan inspire confidence in American leadership in the world?” – Craig Hemke
Food Stamp Increase Means Higher Food Prices For All – “Unfortunately, whenever the government increases its role in any sector of the economy history shows it generally has a profound effect on the prices charged to consumers. For proof, we only need to look at healthcare costs and college tuition. In this case, we should expect the same thing to occur to food prices” – Bruce Wilds
‘Deadly Serious Season’ Unleashing “Trumpian Earthquakes” Around The World – “August really is not playing fair. This is supposed to be ‘silly season’ for news – but we have nothing but the deadly serious so far, even if it also approaching the farcical at times too. Supply chains are still disrupted this summer, with key Chinese ports and airports being impacted again, longer queues at LA port too, and benchmark shipping prices surging to yet new record highs. This backdrop is not going away any time soon. The US is slowing too, as yesterday’s retail sales showed, on top of the NAHB housing index and the Michigan consumer sentiment survey. Fiscal stimulus is still stuck in the mud, it appears. And the Fed’s twin Town Halls yesterday did not touch on the economy or monetary policy at all other than Kashkari slagging off crypto once again.” – Michael Every
