Climate change predictions
"Nolte: Climate ‘Experts’ Are 0-41 with Their Doomsday Predictions"
Breitbart currently has climate change predictions as 0 and 43 for coming true. If everybody jumped in to help their research, they'd likely find a few hundred more climate change predictions that didn't come true.
The current craze is to blame California forest fires on climate change. Canada has similar forests, but they manage their forests. They don't have a big forest fire problem. I guess climate change problems stop at the border.

Facebook joins Chinese virus cover up
"Facebook Censors Tucker Carlson's Interview With "Rogue" Chinese Scientist"
A Chinese billion$+ contract to Biden's son's company. Who says that was wasted money? Heavily Democratic Facebook joins Twitter in trying to help cover up the origins of the Chinese virus. The Chinese have yet to scientifically counter the claim that it intentionally manufactured the virus. If it can't scientifically, it might as well put a "made in China" tag on it.

Twitter joins Chinese virus collusion
"Twitter suspends Chinese virologist who says COVID-19 was made in Wuhan lab"
A Chinese virologist says that the virus was man made in China. If this was bunk, China should have been able to quickly refute it. They haven't, and if they don't within a few days, it means they can't. Meanwhile, Twitter has joined the Chinese cover up by removing the scientist's Twitter account. What slime balls. I'll have to call them Shitter in the future. All they're good for is piles of crap.

Virus was man made biological weapon created by China
"'Rogue' Chinese Virologist Joins Twitter, Publishes "Smoking Gun" Evidence COVID-19 Created In Lab"
Zero Hedge isn't the most conventional news source. Much of what they publish I view to be opinion, rather than fact. I've seen hoaxes before (cold fusion, climate change), but this doesn't appear to be one of them.
The article documents why the current infamous virus must have been created by the Chinese as a biological weapon of mass destruction. There are probably only a few hundred people on the planet who could seriously critique this article, and they probably are doing that right now.
The science is too heavy duty for me, but if the Chinese fail to quickly, convincingly, scientifically refute this article, the world will have to accept that they can't. The virus as a biological warfare weapon let loose, accidentally or otherwise, onto this planet.
If anyone remembers the old Flash Gordon, Ming the Merciless continually searched for new death rays to unleash on mankind. And here we have reality imitating fiction. Can't we just agree to put the Chinese back into seclusion, so the rest of the world can live normally?

This is like an old Disney cartoon. Every year he screams "climate change". And every year he hasn't a clue what to do about forest fires, as California burns. Perhaps someone could introduce the topic of "forest management" to him. The debate is "over" as to whether or not he is an idiot.

Bahrain/Israel peace Deal
"Bahrain 'makes peace" with Israel, says Trump"
Much of the story isn't being told. The Palestinians are largely Sunni. Much of the violence has been pushed by Iran, largely Shia. Israel has been forced to militarily deal mostly with Shia Iran. In the practical world, Sunni countries are finding Israel as a common ally. The Palestinians are set aside, compliments of Iran.

More Cicilline PAC Money
Cicilline says he doesn't accept PAC money. Here's another $1,000.00 in from BHFS-E, PC PAC (BROWNSTEIN HYATT FARBER SCHRECK POLITICAL ACTION COMMITTEE), committee ID C00390583, on 6/30/2020.
It seems that the real dishonesty with PAC money is what Cicilline is telling the voters. I'm not even looking for these. When I've got time, I'll see how much money he's taking in from PACs.

Cicilline receiving PAC money
Cicilline said, perhaps a year ago, that he was refusing to accept PAC money. He has more money than he can spend. If people want to send you money, they will find ways to do it. The nice thing about PAC money is that it gets reported to the Federal Election Commission, and is easy to identify. I wasn't looking for Cicilline PAC money, but this passed in front of my face. On 6/17/2020 the Cargill, Incorporated Political Action Committee, committee ID # C00067884, gave the Cicilline Committee $1,000.00, as reported on Cargill's FEC filing:
I myself am happy to accept PAC money, just as long as the donors understand that there are no strings attached. I am actually actively looking for PAC money from those who have ideas similar to my own.
Cicilline thinks accepting PAC money is immoral. Well David, if I actually looked for it, how much more of it would I find?

3 Interconnected Russia Belarus Stories
1) "Alexei Navalny: Russian doctors agree to let Putin critic go to Germany"
Navalny, Putin's #1 political opponent, is still in a coma. Poisoning is the fate of many of Putin's opponents. Previously prevented from being transferred to a hospital in Germany, now Russia will let him travel on Saturday. Maybe the traces of the poison won't be as conspicuous by then.
2) "Report: Belarus Flies in Russian Crews to Take Over State Media"
Belarus TV news people walked out over fake elections. Russian news people were flown in to take their places. CNN, this is your golden opportunity! Belarus needs fake news too. Let's see if Russia flies in new military commanders. Hopefully the Voice of America will fill the gap for real news.
3) "Belarus protests: Tikhanovskaya vows to stand till the end"
While her supporters get rounded up in Belarus, Tikhanovskaya, widely viewed as the real winner in the Belarus elections, vows to keep the protests and strikes continuing.

Putin the Poisoner
"Alexei Navalny: Plane to bring 'poisoned' Russian critic to Germany"
I'm trying to run a political campaign, but I can't ignore what's going on internationally.
In the Middle Ages, there was a European king called Vlad the Impaler. He killed his victims by throwing them on stakes sticking out of the ground. The modern tale of Dracula was based upon him.
Vladimir Putin likes killing people by poisoning them. Alexei Navalny, a critic of Putin, was just poisoned. This may be easily interpreted as a measure to help prop up Putin's dictator ally in Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko. Putin has threatened to send Russian troops to Belarus to fight off an imaginary invasion.
Lukashenko's election was so phony that, in ordinary times, he would be ousted within days. Putin is trying to keep him in power, to eventually annex Belarus as part of Russia. So Putin poisons one more. Putin the Poisoner.
There is a history of this in Russia. 100+ years ago, a mystic monk named Rasputin had heavy influence on the royal family. No surprise that people tried to assassinate him. In his last episode on earth, Rasputin was poisoned, they tried to drown him, then they shot him a few times. Still. Rasputin almost got away, but didn't make it. Let's hope that Navalny is strong enough to survive. He's currently in a coma. I never cared much for Navalny before, but I'm really starting to like the man.
Putin the Poisoner pissed away his easy chance of wooing Belarus. Now he's staring at a new Afghanistan with Belarus.
Whacking his political opponents in Moscow? Many others will rise up, too many to kill. To quote the movie "Casablanca", "Not even Nazis can kill that fast."
Russia in the G8 again? A cold day in hell.

"Steve Bannon pleads not guilty to illicit border wall scheme"
Non-profits are similar to regular companies. The main difference is that they don't pay taxes. Neither did Al Capone. While there's a zillion non-profits honestly promoting their favorite causes, some non-profits are little more than an excuse to pay their leaders fancy salaries. The crimes here weren't the fancy pay they received. They were in representing the non-profit from being other than it was, thus duping the donors.

"Belarus protests: Strikes expected as Lukashenko remains defiant"
Whether or not Lukashenko can stay in power, he's a crippled man. Russia's Putin should be looking at the next generation. Tikhanovskaya was, for all practical purposes, the winner of the Belarus election.
At this stage of the game, Lukashenko has to give Belarus to Russia to stay in power. But Russia would wind up with a population of perpetually hostile people. Instead, Putin should make feelers to Tikhanovskaya. This is not an east vs west game. Get her while she's cheap. The carrot works better than the stick in these sorts of situations. Lukashenko can retire to a dacha, and everybody can be smiling again.

"Conservative Journalist Arrested & Jailed Ahead Of 'ShadowGate' Documentary Release"
I once spent a few hours chasing an Infowars story that turned out to be as phony as a $3 bill. So I'm cautious. She was just going to release "Shadowgate", a documentary about the Deep State, when she got charged with a bunch of crimes. I tend to think that if the Deep State wanted to silence her, they wouldn't have used the courts. But the Deep State hides in shadows, so I thought I'd shine a light on this.

"U.S. envoy to Uzbekistan urges release of detained journalist"
It's tough ruling a country when your principal export is jihadi terrorists. Uzbekistan, until a few decades ago, was part of the old Soviet Union. Until a few years ago it was ruled with an iron fist. I urge current President Mirziyoyev to lighten up a bit. Look at the US. Twitter, FaceBook and Google have been successful at eliminating the publication of opinions they disagree with. It isn't necessary to put journalists in jail.

Belarus Releases Protesters
"‘We don’t need war’: Belarus releases detainees in bid to quell protests"
Most protests fizzle out. Belarus has had the same ruler since around when it split from the old Soviet Union decades ago. Putin's dreams of re-creating the old Russian Empire virtually require Belarus to be a partner. So Russia has supported Belarus sufficiently enough to help keep the current ruler in power. Belarus has just had elections, and virtually no one views them as being even remotely fair, as usual. Belarus is a democracy in theory only. Most view the ruler as a dictator. Belarus has usually seen protests over elections. The most recent, days ago, came to within an inch of deposing the dictator. The government realized this, and decided to release the protestors from jail. Within perhaps a week they would have released themselves, but this happened just early enough to spare Lukashenko from being deposed.

I started watching BBC News to keep an eye on crooked British politicians who were affecting US elections. Worse than what the Democrats hoped Trump/Russia to be, but not as bad as ObamaGate. This is all common knowledge, but no one seems interested. If I pushed the issue too hard, I'd become another notch in Hillary's belt. The BBC is as fake and left wing as CNN, but it covers Europe better than most, along with former members of the old European empires in Africa and Asia.
But if you want a balanced look at international news, without spending all day reading dozens of sources, I've found a particularly good source. Sign up for Lisa Daftari's "The Foreign Desk". She'll send an email a day, Monday to Friday, listing the 10+ most important international stories of the day, with functioning links to the articles. I read a lot of news, so I've already read most of the stories elsewhere. But she will have very important stories that are brand new to me, and different perspectives on other stories that I'm aware of. Some people consider emails like this to be junk mail, but I look forward to them. She is the best. Trump gets his daily intelligence briefing. I get my email.

Deep State for President
"Susan Rice, ‘Deep State’ Running Mate"
Many are worried that Susan Rice being Biden's running mate would introduce an accomplished professional liar to the position. But I agree with Breitbart. The bigger risk is having the Deep State formally take charge of government. This would make the US similar to China, with the Communist Party, China's own Deep State, in charge. Joe Biden's mind is no match for those of the Deep State. They'd march right in. Think of it as an undercover "Tibet".
