Lead: West Using Nalvany Death To Push Regime Change

Photo credit: x

The European Union says that it will support regime change in Russia by supporting the widow of Alexei Navalny, Yulia Navalnaya.

Navalnaya says that she is going to pick up the opposition to the Putin administration now that her husband has died in prison. She claims that he was poisoned by Novichok, the same substance that his supporters say he was exposed to in 2020. Watch our video here to learn the truth about Novichok and how little proof there was that this happened then. But much of the world bought the Novichok story so, why not play it on repeat?

Russia does not make Novichok. Ukraine has some though. That’s weird, right?

The Kremlin says that it is not involved in the investigation of Navalny’s death.

Imagine for a moment that Russia were saying that it would support an opposition to the U.S. president. Yet that is what the EU and the US are now saying with Navalnaya.

Whoops! Pentagon Lost A Year’s Worth of Documents

The Lever published a shocking report showing that the Pentagon has “lost” an entire year’s worth of records about allegations of military misconduct in the Middle East. This is shocking and worth your time to read but allow us to re-publish a summary:

“Government investigators found evidence of at least 47 allegations of U.S. military war crimes between 2012 and 2022 as the United States waged an air and ground war against the Islamic State in the Middle East and Africa. But a significant portion of information about alleged war crimes during that time was missing.

Military personnel were not able to provide records of potential war-crime allegations from the sub-command center overseeing operations in Iraq and Syria for all of 2015, when President Barack Obama oversaw thousands of airstrikes in the countries. And records that would have detailed allegations in 2017 were missing from the military’s Middle East command center.”

These allegations come from an investigation from the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office (GAO).

In 2021, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin promised that the military would be more transparent about war crimes. Right.

Some Victims Matter to Congress, and Some Don’t

Last week the House of Representatives voted to condemn sexual violence by Hamas since the October7 attack on Tel Aviv. The resolution said nothing of the sexual violence committed by Israel against Palestinians.

The United Nations is concerned about this however. 

The Office of the High Commissioner of Human Rights published a statement to express alarm over the treatment of Palestinian women and girls while detained by Israeli forces. The UN says that these girls have been “arbitrarily executed… denied menstruation pads, food and medicine, and severely beaten.” They also say that they have been “subjected to multiple forms of sexual assault, such as being stripped naked and searched by male Israeli army officers. At least two female Palestinian detainees were reportedly raped while others were reportedly threatened with rape and sexual violence.”

When the House voted to condemn the violence perpetuated by Hamas, they said nothing of these allegations. Perhaps because this is not new. The IDF has been capturing Palestinians, holding them without trial and sexually abusing them for decades.

Second Gentleman Doug Emhof said that he was given a “graphic private briefing” by Israeli law enforcement proving that Hamas was guilty of “torture, genital mutilation, butchery, leaving women to die after they’ve been raped and tortured, to die in a ditch.”

Relevant question: why do only some victims matter?

EU: More War and More Defense Spending

Ursula von der Leyen will run for a second term as the president of the European Commission. This would give her another five years in office.

She seems to have support from European leaders, despite the fact that under her term she has tanked Europe’s economy to support war in Ukraine and the scandals that have followed her around dodgy negotiations with Pfizer for the Covid vaccine and an investigation into how she awarded defense contracts while she was the defense minister in Germany. In that investigation, she was found to have deleted messages from a second phone.

Politico says that she will run on “a platform of increased defence spending.” That means she wants to continue to use EU money on war, plain and simple, despite the fact that her positions on war are tanking the Euro and costing lives in Ukraine.

Will anyone oppose this? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller? 

Another leader whose track record is dodgy but never-you-mind is Mark Rutte, former Prime Minister in the Netherlands. Despite resigning last year over failed policy which was about to cost him his job, he may soon be hired to run NATO. When he resigned last year, he said he would be leaving politics. Instead, he will be leading the Western war coalition that is NATO.

It would be naive to think that either of these people will lead to a more peaceful geopolitical landscape.

News By The Numbers

£70,000. That is how much money JK Rowling has reportedly donated to a feminist group that is challenging the Scottish Supreme Court on Scotland’s law allowing men to legally change their gender to women.

Four. That is how many people were struck by lightning in Sydney during a massive lighting storm on Sunday.

One year. That is how long former President Jimmy Carter has been in hospice and people are surprised because they didn’t think he’d last that long sadly.

What’s Trending?
