Updating Americans

 Staying Current,

  Thanks Eleni.  ‘Transported in Cages’ – Shocking Details of How Israel Treats Female Gaza Prisoners
​  “This detail particularly hurt me: these women have been transported in animal trucks. They have been tied, blindfolded and stripped of their head covering, as a way to humiliate them,” al-Abadi said...
..The lawyer also said that when the female detainees arrived at the prison, their clothes were stained with blood. Most of them were also bleeding from their hands, as the plastic chains had been tightly tied around their wrists for days...
​..Al-Abadi shared that one of the women had to leave her four children in Gaza. The eldest was only eight years old, the youngest an infant.
According to the testimony from other prisoners, the woman was walking on Salah Al-Din Street, fleeing from the north of the Gaza Strip, when the Israeli soldiers arrested her.​  “When she learned that she would be under arrest, she immediately handed her children to a boy who was walking in the street and told him to take care of them,” al-Abadi said.
“I learned from the other prisoners that she asked about her children every day, crying inconsolably, but nobody was updating her on their fate.”
​  A few days ago, however, al-Abadi was able to deliver a verbal message to this woman, that her children had eventually reached their father. “This time, she cried out of joy,” he said.

​  Tehran refutes accusations it supplies weapons to Houthis — envoy to UN
Amir Saeid Iravani also said that his country was ready to call on the Houthis to cease fire, if Israel withdraws its troops from the Gaza Strip and lifts restrictions on sending humanitarian aid to the residents of the enclave

​  Only 3 in 10 Americans Were Aware of US Troops in Syria Prior to Deadly Attack
​  Defense Priorities commissioned YouGov to poll Americans from January 8-15 about the deployment of 900 US troops in Syria. Three in ten Americans responded that they were aware US troops were deployed to Syria. The three US soldiers killed at Tower 22 in Jordan were supporting the US base in southern Syria.
​  US troops in Iraq and Syria have come under attack over 160 times from Shia militias that operate in the region. The YouGov poll found only a quarter of Americans were aware of the attacks that left scores of US soldiers injured.
​  The Shia militias say they are targeting American soldiers occupying Iraq and Syria with drones, rockets, and missiles because of US support for the ongoing genocide Israel is conducting in Gaza. The poll found that a majority of Americans are concerned about a larger war breaking out in the region because of the US troops’ presence.

​  The Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies interviewed 8,000 people between December 12, 2023 and January 5, 2024 in 16 Arab countries (Mauritania, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Sudan, Yemen, Oman, Qatar, Kuwait , Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, as well as the West Bank) and revealed in early January that 89% consider the October 7 attacks legitimate and only 5% consider them illegitimate.
​  Furthermore, 69% express support for Hamas94% consider the U.S. position on the conflict to be negative and 79%, 78% and 75% consider the positions of France, the United Kingdom and Germany to be negative, respectively. Additionally, 76% said their opinion of the U.S. after the genocide in Gaza has become more negative and 81% do not think the U.S. truly supports the establishment of a Palestinian state;
​  51% think the U.S. is the main threat to their security, while 26% think it is Israel;
​  92% think that the Palestinian issue is a problem for all Arabs, not just the Palestinians. This is the highest rate since opinion polls began in 2011. At the end of 2022, the percentage was 76%In Morocco, the index increased from 59% in 2022 to 95% now, in Egypt from 75% to 94%, in Sudan from 68% to 91% and in Saudi Arabia from 69% to 95%;
​  89% of Arabs reject the recognition of Israel as a State, while in 2022 there were 84%, and only 4% support this recognition. In Saudi Arabia, this index increased from 38% in 2022 to 68% now, in Morocco from 67% to 78% and in Sudan from 72% to 81%.​...
​..1)There is immense support among Arabs for the armed struggle against Israel; 2) they consider imperialist powers as enemies and 3) they believe in a unified struggle against imperialism and Zionism.

  ​As pointed out yesterday, the Iraqi militias are Iraqi-government-funded militias, not "Iran backed rebels".
Biden Pulls A Trump: Targeted Drone Assassination Kills Iran-Backed Militia Leaders In Baghdad
​  The high-ranking militia member is being initially identified as Wissam Mohammed Al Saiedi according to early reports. A Kataib Hezbollah associated Telegram channel has since mourned "the engineer of the missiles of the Iraqi resistance." An initial statement from the Baghdad police indicated "A car was on fire in Baghdad's eastern neighborhood of Al Mashtal." Additionally the statement said "it was probably hit by a missile fired from a drone. We are investigating.”

  ​The rumors have been consistent that Zaluzhny always despised Zelensky, and has had his own eye on the presidency of Ukraine. Zelensky wanted Zaluzhny to ask the Parliament to mobilize 500,000 more Ukrainians and also to take the blame for the (iminent) fall of Avdeevka before stepping down. Zaluzhni refused. The military backed Zaluzhny. Nuland brought "cookies". Now this unfriendly divorce. 
​  Zelensky Fires Top General, Appoints New Commander, In Major Shake-Up
  Zelensky said Thursday he met with his army chief and that while it's time for significant "changes" - Zaluzhny should remain "on his team". Though the decision had been rumored and reported for over a week, presumably the stall was to negotiate and ensure peaceful transition of the top defense post. There were also widespread reports that Zaluzhny had refused to step down.
  "We discussed what renewal the Armed Forces of Ukraine need. We also discussed who could be in the renewed leadership of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The time for this renewal is now," Zelensky announced in an English statement on X and Telegram.
  Zaluzhny had just before the announcement confirmed he had an "important and serious conversation" with Zelensky which focused on changing battlefield tactics and strategyThe now former top commander has huge popularity among military ranks and especially far-right, ultranationalist and neo-Nazi elements. Will his firing result in mutiny or rebellion among some units?
  Very quickly on the heels of news of Zaluzhny's dismissal, Ukraine announced the appointment of Oleksandr Syrskyi as the new commander-in-chief the armed forces. Until now, Gen. Syrskyi was Ukraine's ground forces commander.  (Last week Syrskyi reportedly refused to replace Zaluzhny.)

  Moon of Alabama, Finally A Wonder-Weapon That Does What It Promised To Do ; The battle of Avdeevka is about to be finished.
​  The city of Avdeevka, (not to be confused with the small town of Andreevka near Bakhmut), is situated immediately north-west of Donetsk city. It has been used for years as a Ukrainian fortress well positioned for artillery attacks on DonetskThe whole city, and especially the coke and chemical plant in its northern sector, was well prepared to defend against Russian attacks.​ But despite all attempts to hold on to it the Ukrainian garrison (10,000 ​men) within the city is about to be encircled and fall​.....The JDAM kit, of which more than 500,000 were produced, allowed for the use of large piles of cold-war era bombs with previously unknown precision.
​  After the 2022 start of the war in Ukraine Russia engaged in a program to develop an equivalent to the JDAM kit. The program was finished by the end of 2023. The Russian version can be strapped onto a 500kg or a 1,500 kilogram dumb bomb extending their range by attaching wings, guidance kit and control surfaces to already existing dumb bombs. After being programmed with target coordinates the bomb gets dropped, turns 180 degree around its length axis and unfolds its wings. The wings enable the bomb to fly some 50 miles before hitting the ground. This allows the planes dropping these bombs to stay outside of the enemy's air defense envelope.
​  The guidance kits are cheap and can easily be mass produced.​ Yesterday some 65 
(fuel air bomb) FAB500 and FAB1500 were used against targets in Avdeevka.​ 
​  The use of these bombs, which carry 300 kilogram and more of explosives, near one's own troops requires careful planing and observation. Observers on the ground have to make sure that their own troops are outside of the deadly circle of these bombs and that the coordinates of targets are submitted in a disciplined but secure and timely manner. Pilots have to make sure that the received coordinates are programmed into the bombs and that their release is done at the right attitude and positions.
​  This kill chain requires intensive training and disciplined soldiers. Yesterday's attacks demonstrate that the Russian army and air-forces have mastered this discipline.​ Any detected resistance or position of Ukrainian troops was visited by a precise FAB attack within just a few minutes.
​  There is no defense against these weapons.​   
[The Israelis have used over 10,000 JDAM-bombs on ​Palestinian families in Gaza.]​ ...
​..The Ukrainian army has nothing comparable in its arsenals.
​  The introduction of mass FAB500 strikes onto the Ukrainian battle field have given the Russian forces a new qualitative advantage that will change the course of the war (though not its outcome). The U.S. political and military specialists who still believe that attrition is a viable strategy for the Ukrainian army are clearly way off the path of reality.

The United States Has Zero National Security
​  In his newly published book, Nuclear High-Attitude Electromagnetic PulseSteven Starr shows that all it takes is one nuclear explosion to shut down  the United States and throw the population back into the Dark Ages.  The electric power grid would be destroyed along with the communications system, the cooling systems at nuclear power plants and all electronic devices.  The reason is that civilian infrastructure is not protected from ElectroMagneticPulse (EMP). The military has taken steps to shield its weapon and communication systems, but nothing has been done to protect civilian infrastructure.  Bills mandating EMP protection have been defeated in Congress.  
​  Starr reports that only 4% of the US military budget is required to shield the power grid and civilian infrastructure...
​..Effects of a single high-altitude nuclear detonation over the Eastern U.S.​  [Another over Texas and another over California ​could take out all the lower 48 grids.]
​  “105 miles above Ohio, a single nuclear warhead explodes. Because it is far above the atmosphere, there will be no blast or fire effects felt on Earth, however, this high-altitude nuclear detonation will create a gigantic electromagnetic pulse or EMP.
​  “In one billionth of a second, the initial EMP E1 wave will cause massive voltages and currents to form within power lines, telecommunication lines, cables, wires, antennas, and any other electrically conductive material found beneath the nuclear detonation in a circular area covering hundreds of thousands of square miles.​..

America: Land of the Free, Home of the Brave
​  I say without any hesitation that the United States is the freest country in the Collective West for those who hold nonconformist ideas to express them without fear of persecution and even to assemble vast audiences of followers.
​  Of course, free speech comes and goes in the United States.  The country coined the term McCarthyism during the witch hunts for Communists early in the Cold War. But at present, thanks to the disrupter in chief Donald Trump, anything goes.

​  Edward Slavsquat on Russian censorship laws. Thanks Oxy-in-Oz: Moscow expands war against info-terrorism 
Spreading fakes is now punishable with fines, prison time & property confiscation  ("Sentenced to 6 months of compulsory medical treatment.")
​  Russia’s upper house of parliament on Wednesday unanimously approved a law that allows for confiscation of property and deprivation of military ranks and honorary titles for activities directed against the state, as well as for discrediting the country’s armed forces. Since the start of its special military operation in Ukraine in February 2022, the Russian government has granted itself a range of new powers to combat information deemed nonfactual and damaging to national security.

  More sideways Slavsquat perspective on Russia and Putin being ordinary and dingy, neither demonic nor angelic. Thanks Oxy.
Putin: An alternative perspective​ , A conversation with Iurie Roșca
​  True patriots and anti-System militants around the world must understand that Russia can and must represent an alternative to the collective West dominated by the Satanists who are imposing a tyrannical regime of dystopian technocracy.
​  But today’s rulers of this country are only a simulacrum, an imitation, a Potemkin village, who put on the mask of patriots so that they can continue to plunder Russia’s natural resources.
​  Meanwhile, Russians are being replaced with Muslims from Central Asia. Few people in the West know that not only the US, Canada and Europe are subject to a premeditated invasion of extra-European and non-Christian populations, but also Russia.
​  My criticism is directed against an occupation administration, subordinated to the UN, WHO, WTO, IMF, BIS. The same is true of the administration of my own country, the US, the EU, China and all BRICS members.

​  This honest man, Julian Assange, a servant of truth, has lived in relentless isolated torture for our benefit.
​  The United Nations’ special rapporteur on torture has called upon authorities in the UK to block Julian Assange’s possible extradition to the United States to face espionage charges. Britain could be violating human rights laws by turning the WikiLeaks founder over to the US, due to his fragile mental state, UN expert Alice Jill Edwards warned on Tuesday.

​  (Russian propaganda) The Western propaganda machine is losing its potency as the United States’ anti-Russian proxy war in Ukraine fails.
​  Assange believes the United States seeks to sentence him to life in prison or even submit him to the death penalty.
Host Wilmer Leon noted that US ally Israel is also deliberately targeting and killing journalists in its assault on Gaza while the United States itself operates a “massive biosurveillance structure” more sophisticated than that run by any secret police in history.
​  “The United States government/the West realizes it is losing the narrative, it is losing the public opinion,” 
said Leon. “When you look at the polls, Americans want us out of Ukraine, Americans don't want their money to go there, Americans are opposed to the genocidal actions of the Zionist government in Israel. 
​  They're losing the narrative, they're losing in the court of public opinion.”
​  “And all Tucker Carlson is doing is now adding more information to that information war, and the United States is losing it.”

  ​(Laughing Russians note :-) Tucker Carlson Threatened With Death, Sanctions for Putin Interview: Netizens React
​  News spread Wednesday that US journalist Tucker Carlson has been added to a Ukrainian “kill list” as the reporter prepares to release an interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow.
The disturbing development was noted by users on social media, who shared screenshots of the entry for Carlson on the Mirotvorets webpage (actually, the prominent journalist was added to the notorious "kill list" back in 2023).​..
​..More recently, author Gonzalo Lira died in a Ukrainian prison where he was being held after engaging in prominent public criticism of the Kiev regime. The incident garnered minimal comment from the Biden administration, even though Lira was an American citizen.
Although the Zelensky regime enjoys American military and financial aid, that doesn't stop Ukraine from listing US citizens on the "kill list".​..
​..Former Belgian Prime Minister Guy Verhofstadt, now a member of the European Parliament, described Carlson as “a mouthpiece” for Putin and former US President Donald Trump.​ “As Putin is a war criminal and the EU sanctions all who assist him in that effort, it seems logical that the External Action Service examine his case as well,” said Verhofstadt.

  A Midwestern Doctor presents complimentary information about the machine which feeds upon us and slowly kills us.
Why The Bioweapons Research Industry Is A Danger to Society​ , and what the WHO is doing to protect this grift now that the public is wising up to it.
​  The upper class has gradually shifted to controlling the populace through economic enslavement, the fear of an ecological disaster, and the fear of a disastrous pandemic which must be stopped at any costs.
​  An immensely profitable industry has been built around these fears. Many notorious career scientists (e.g., Fauci and Hotez) depend upon this grift. Worse still, those fears have been used to create the justification we need to perform an endless amount of bioweapons research to “prevent” the next pandemic.
​  That research is extremely dangerous and regularly leads to disastrous lab leaks which sicken and sometimes kill those exposed to the pathogens.

​  (Recovering Russian) Sasha Latypova, Audio recording leaked from AstraZeneca: Covid was classified a national security threat by the US Government/DOD on February 4, 2020.  Recorded at an internal executive meeting at the end of 2020. This recording has not been published previously anywhere.
​  On Feb 4, 2020 - AstraZeneca and other pharma companies participating in the DOD Pandemic Preparedness consortium received a phone call from the DOD saying that “novel covid virus posed national security threat”. This explains why PREP Act declaration in the US was made retroactive to Feb 4. The US Government organized itself for war, but lied to the public that it was a zoonotic virus and a healthcare event. Anyone who suggested otherwise was heavily censored and surveilled online, including me. They continue to pretend it was/is a natural virus evolution to this day. It appears that the DOD initiated the covid plandemic and did not tell Trump until after.​..
..The audio confirms that the DOD pandemic pharma consortium was established in 2017 and the DOD, (not pharmas) was, and remains in charge of it. I knew this based on the covid contracts analysis, but it’s good to have a definitive confirmation. The AZ execs are musing that at the time they thought the DOD’s pandemic preparedness plan - from “discovering” new viruses to making new drugs for them in 60 days - sounded like science fiction...
