🚨 Oxfam and Amnesty International have brought a case against the Netherlands accusing the government of war crimes in Gaza for sending weapons to Israel. The trial begins this week.
🚢 The Pentagon says that three commercial ships in the Red Sea were struck by ballistic missiles fired from Yemen. It also says that a U.S. warship shot down three drones in self-defense during the hourslong assault.
🇪🇺 The EU has not been able to agree on an aid package for Ukraine and may fail to do so at a summit in Brussels next week.
💸 The U.S. will “quadruple” weapons manufacturing, according to Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin.
🇸🇻 El Salvador is accusing the Miss Universe pageant of rigging the beauty contest because the winner, Sheyniss Palacios is an anti-government activist.
🤦🏻♂️ NATO says that they are “prepared for bad news” about the war in Ukraine. What more bad news do they need?
The ceasefire in Gaza is over and Israel stepped up its attacks by land and air this weekend in its aim to eliminate Hamas. Israel has ordered civilians to evacuate because, as they warned last week, they used the ceasefire time to double their efforts.
According to CBS News, “the United Nations estimates that 1.8 million Palestinians in Gaza have been displaced. Nearly 958,000 of them are in 99 U.N. facilities in the south, said Juliette Toma, director of communications at the U.N. agency for Palestinian refugees.”
Well the south is not a safe haven has Israel has begun to concentrate its attacks on the southern city of Khan Younis. Israel has apparently begun dropping leaflets warning civilians of impending attacks.
Many of those attacks come from U.S.-provided bombs. The Wall Street Journal reports that the “U.S. has provided Israel with large bunker buster bombs” and "roughly 15,000 bombs and 57,000 artillery shells.” The government has been secretive about this weapons transfer, unlike the open disclosure of all the weapons sent to Ukraine.
The precision paradox is hard at play here.
The precision paradox is the false claim that any military attack can only target certain bad people. Of course that’s not possible. Israel admits that is the case. According to the Journal: “Israel’s military says it already takes precautions to protect civilians, though in the initial days of the war its air force also said its strikes were causing 'maximum damage.’ Israeli officials have also said they have a limited capacity for precision strikes because its forces are stretched thin.”
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is suing Pfizer for lying about the Covid vaccine and engaging in “false, deceptive, and misleading acts and practices.”
The lawsuit claims that Pfizer made unsupported claims about the effectiveness of the vaccine when it claimed it was 95% effective at stopping Covid transmission. This is true, they did that using the “relative risk reduction” model and the FDA knew it and allowed it.
The lawsuit also claims that more vaccinated people died from Covid than unvaccinated people after the vaccine roll out. This is also true and CDC data shows it unequivocally.
But Pfizer had impressive immunity from the government around the Covid vaccine. How can they be sued? Fraud is how. The Prep Act, which gave pharmaceutical companies immunity, can be pierced if plaintiffs can prove fraud. Texas AG Paxton led a six-month investigation of Pfizer’s Covid vaccine and apparently believes that he can prove fraud in a court of law.
Incidentally, Paxton faced an unprecedented impeachment trial and was acquitted of all charges. He was not allowed to even enter his office during this trial so this Pfizer lawsuit may have come sooner had this not happened. The executive committee of the Republican Party of Texas voted to censure outgoing Rep. Andrew Murr who led the House committee that brought the impeachment charges.

New Zealand's Dirty Covid Secret Exposed by Whistleblower
new zealand media call covid whistleblower Barry Young a conspiracy theorist credit: newshub
Police in New Zealand arrested a whistleblower who was trying to warn about excess deaths in connection with the Covid vaccine. They claim his actions were "a mass privacy breach of Covid-19 vaccination data.”
A man named Barry Young sent the data to researchers last week showing at least 10,000 excess deaths per year since the Covid vaccine. Rather than refute the data, the government arrested the source. Young was denied bail because the government deemed him to be a flight risk. At his arraignment on Monday, the court was packed with supporters of Young who cheered when he appeared. The judge had to tell them to stop, saying "any more disruption and I'll ask you to leave".
Young has been charged with “accessing a computer system for dishonest purposes.”
The media is calling Young’s data “conspiracy” and repeating the “safe and effective” line. There is no research that shows the combination of vaccines currently used on humans is safe in the combination that we currently use them. As for the effectivity line, see the preceding story about the lawsuit by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton.
A reporter who has followed the story, Liz Gunn, says that the whistleblower did take this data to the government and was ignored. New Zealand does have whistleblower protection laws under the Protected Disclosures Act. Will it apply to this man?
Macaulay Culkin is trending because he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this weekend and people think he is sweet with his wife and kids. Good thing he didn't leave them home alone.
Fortnite was trending this weekend because of Eminem’s “Big Bang” live event that my son tried to attend and was unable. Over 100 million players were doing the same thing.
News By The Numbers
7.6. That is the magnitude of an earthquake that hit the Philippines on Saturday, triggering tsunami warnings. There were no reports of major injuries or deaths.
$58. That is the cost of a new “textbook” just released by the American Psychiatric Association (APA) called "Gender-Affirming Psychiatric Care.” Psychiatrists are expressing concern about it because It was written by trans activists.
$1 billion. That is how much Alaska Air will pay to acquire Hawaiian Airlines. There's a global warming joke in here somewhere.
Alcohol is stronger than it used to be and takes longer than you think to get out of your system. So you might want to think that “I can have two drinks and still drive” idea. Where did that ever come from anyway?
The Guardian published research showing that the average glass of wine is 577% larger than a glass of wine was in the 1700s. That’s a generous pour! Popular wines now have higher ABV percentages too. That is alcohol by volume. In the 1960s, most adult beverages had approximately 9% ABVs. Compare that with today’s drinks that have at least 12% or more.
So if you do have those two glasses of wine, it will stay in your system for SEVEN hours. Are you going to stay at a party for 7 hours AFTER two glasses of wine? If not, you should not be the driver.
Sorry if that’s a bah humbug but drinking and driving is just not safe at any level.
