Now, onto the news from Tuesday, February 21 …
Biden, Putin Give Dueling Speeches on War — NBC News
Our Take: “I thought about putting together a whole collage of the Media Industrial Complex’s portrayal of what happened the Tuesday of President’s week in the United States, where, a seeming world away, two men gave ‘dueling’ addresses about the immediate futures of their respective nations, and of each other’s escalatory engagements, but you can guess what they thought of it.
If you’ve been digging and toiling in the Info War for any length of time, it will not surprise you—though it IS ironic—to note that you likely came away from the Russian President’s speech significantly more encouraged than the American ‘Resident’s response to it.
While Joe Biden has spent the last few days dialing up anti-Russia rhetoric while begging for more U.S. and western aid to the Globalist proxy state of Ukraine as his own nation—OUR nation—struggles under his version of controlled demolition … err … leadership, Vladimir Putin was the picture of poise, delivering clear, concise remarks about Russia’s intentions in the Ukrainian theater, and Her responses to the continued incursions and escalations of the Globalist West.
I have long projected that 2023 will be a year defined by escalation and acceleration, leading us to the precipice of a Crisis Cascade that builds to a crescendo in the form of a Scare Event.
While I believe we are still a way’s off from that eventuality, the pieces are moving into place, with Putin adopting a war posture while Biden continues to prod him, Xi Jinping moves to join him and Donald Trump seeds the narrative of the peacemaker on the sidelines.
I have said before that the Globalist Deep State picked the wrong target when they went after Russia on the world stage.
And to that I hold.” — Burning Bright
Kevin McCarthy’s Apparent Deal With Tucker Carlson to Share Jan. 6 Footage Surprised Some Top Capitol Security Officials
Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s apparent deal to grant Tucker Carlson access to thousands of hours of Capitol security footage from Jan. 6, 2021 came as a surprise to at least one official with oversight responsibility over those files: Capitol Police Chief Thomas Manger.
A person familiar with the matter said Manger told associates he didn’t learn of the arrangement between McCarthy and Carlson until it began publicly circulating Monday. Capitol Police have been extremely reluctant to share large swaths of their security footage, citing potential risks to lawmakers, aides and officers tasked with protecting the building.
House Sergeant at Arms William McFarland also told associates he learned about it around the same time Axios broke the news Monday … — Politico
Our Take: “It seems Tucker does not possess the J6 footage, but does have access to it. That’s an important distinction because airing any of that footage ‘may require approval from the Capitol Police Board.’
However, The Capitol Police Chief and the Sergeant at Arms were not even aware of the arrangement between McCarthy and Tucker until they saw it on the news. Someone probably should have told them ahead of Monday's news. — Just Human
Summary of Key Facts
Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine contains truncated mRNA, which the EMA flagged as a reason for its “major objection,” indicating a preclusion of their approval.
Pfizer has not investigated the detrimental outcomes of truncated mRNA in its vaccines.
Pfizer submitted Western blot figures to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the EMA that were digitally generated—not from actual experiments.
There has been an alarming lack of action taken by health authorities on this issue.
Truncated mRNA potentially contributes to multiple vaccine-related injuries, including misfolded spike protein-induced fibrous blood clots, autoimmune disorders, and cancer.
These problems with the Pfizer vaccine could have resulted in drastic product quality variations from batch to batch. This could explain the difference in adverse events experienced by vaccine recipients.
The root cause of such irresponsible conduct by pharma and health authorities is a lack of ethics. — The Epoch Times
Our Take: “They knew and they did it anyway.
The situation with the Pfizer jab is not an isolated incident. As the article details, the same research methods are used everywhere—in physics, biotech, psychology, social statistics, and so on. The situation won't change, either.
Why would it?
There's no negative incentive for changing it. The fines and resignations are just the cost of doing business—a price these nefarious entities are happy to pay.
If WE THE PEOPLE form our own peer review organizations that carefully review a study to ensure it was actually done properly, to include evaluating methods across the board, we could identify the scientific frauds pushed to the world—the same frauds the cabal uses to deceive the unthinking masses.
It's surprisingly easy to learn scientific methods and how to spot manipulation. It's even easier when we work together to do so. If we did this to every claim, study, or fact that exists in society today, we would discover that a disturbingly-large amount of things we believe have no basis in evidence or fact.
I would argue, this careful assessment is an essential part of the societal healing that will need to take place if we are to keep whatever freedoms we take back in the Great Awakening.” — Justin Deschamps
Rep. Ralph Norman (R-SC) told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview this week that House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) set the “gears in place” for conservatives on the House Rules Committee to strip Ukraine aid from must-pass spending bills.
Norman spoke to Breitbart News as conservatives have railed against the inclusion of Ukraine aid in must-pass bills, such as the $1.7 trillion omnibus spending bills and a stop-gap spending bill, otherwise known as a continuing resolution (CR).
Asked if House conservatives on the House Rules Committee would move to strip Ukraine aid from must-pass spending bills, Norman said, “We’re going to make sure it happens.”
The South Carolina conservative elaborated, “If it’s spending American dollars, then each representative is going to have to take a vote on it. We’re simply not going to let them bundle it up on something completely off the radar with having anything to do with where the money’s going.” — Breitbart
Our Take: “McCarthy is beginning to silence the doubters. Turning over J6 footage, even to Tucker Carlson, is big. He's as big as it gets in mainstream media and can potentially disrupt the MSM narrative on J6 pretty quickly.
If McCarthy gets this done in that house and strips this funding away, that's huge.
The Regime likely believed McCarthy wouldn't have the political will to strip money from Ukraine, but the 'war' is extremely unpopular and the people will be behind this.” — Chris Paul
The U.S. Department of Defense secured an exposed server on Monday that was spilling internal U.S. military emails to the open internet for the past two weeks.
The exposed server was hosted on Microsoft’s Azure government cloud for Department of Defense customers, which uses servers that are physically separated from other commercial customers and as such can be used to share sensitive but unclassified government data. The exposed server was part of an internal mailbox system storing about three terabytes of internal military emails, many pertaining to U.S. Special Operations Command, or USSOCOM, the U.S. military unit tasked with conducting special military operations.
But a misconfiguration left the server without a password, allowing anyone on the internet access to the sensitive mailbox data inside using only a web browser, just by knowing its IP address. — Tech Crunch
Our Take: “This could be the result of human error or ... not.
This could be an attempt to compromise USSOCOM's civilian network. Or, a clever way of transferring information that was temporarily on that network.
Will be interesting to see what an investigation determines.” — Just Human
Our Take: “The board lied to the staff, O'Keefe, and the public. They engaged in malfeasance that, in my mind, indicates the organization was likely infiltrated, leveraging weakness that were eventually used to take it out.
This presents two learning opportunities:
First, if O'Keefe didn't bravely speak out against the fraud pushed by the board, who now controls Project Veritas, the board would have smeared a good man and people would have fallen for it to a certain extent. The lesson here is that courage in the face of fraud limits harm caused therefrom.
Second, the board, I suspect, was populated by professional board members, who are often not trustworthy and can be compromised. In turn, they can also compromise an organization, as they did with Project Veritas (PV). I also suspect that the bylaws of PV did not explicitly define the values and procedures of the organization and did not include oaths that the board and other staff would be required to make.
These oaths, if properly written, combined with explicitly-defined provisions in the bylaws, would have given O'Keefe more power to stop them from ruining the organization he founded.
This second item is a fact of law that we would all do well to understand: Maxim: Rights not invoked have no power.
In this case, O'Keefe should have defined precisely what his organization was to embody, which is a right he possessed as the founder.
A great many organizations doing amazing work for humanity are similarly filled with weaknesses that can be exploited. We would do well to examine these orgs and patch the holes we find.” — Justin Deschamps
The US Virgin Islands has been granted permission to mail a subpoena to the former Victoria’s Secret boss Les Wexner over his ties to the late sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, after a security guard allegedly prevented the billionaire from being served at his home.
A New York judge issued the order on Tuesday, after the US Virgin Islands said it had been frustrated in seeking documents from Wexner as part of its civil suit against JPMorgan Chase.
The US Virgin Islands said it had tried to serve Wexner in person at his home in Ohio on February 8 and February 11, as well as at his charitable foundation, of which Epstein was once a trustee, but was blocked from doing so on all occasions. — Financial Times
Our Take: “For a short time, it seemed like the Epstein scandal had gone away. Not much was happening. Blackpillers were, well, black pilling.
Now though, there's Epstein news developing in regards to unsealing of names and documents, emails, lawsuits against JP Morgan and Deutsche Bank, Maxwell filing an appeal, and Les Wexner being subpoenaed.
Excellent.” — Just Human
