Dear readers


After almost 30,000 press reviews, it's time to take a longer break. No, it is not fatigue or a resignation. There are technical, administrative, and political reasons that force this to happen. Now it's time to find an alternative location, at least temporarily. A base with reliable communication options and uncensored, low-risk internet access. This requires a lot of time to test and gain experience. It may well be that we edit something now and then, even if it's just for testing purposes. Let's see.


Your Meridian



This should be the last post before the big break:

Green revolution destroying Germany’s economy as economic bloodbath continues

The more Germany tries to abolish carbon, the worse its economy is getting. Companies in Germany are shutting down or fleeing elsewhere. Energy prices are through the roof, and are currently among the highest in the world. In short, all that "green" being shoved down the throats of Germans is killing them and their country. One of the latest employers to leave Germany is automotive supplier IHI, which just announced the closure of its plant at Erfurter Kreuz, Thuringia. Around 300 people are losing their jobs because of this in a region that is already struggling immensely as it is...

Is Your Car Spying on You?

Last week, Sens. Ron Wyden of Oregon and Edward Markey of Massachusetts revealed that automobiles sold in the United States with a GPS or emergency call system accumulate the travel data of the vehicle on computer chips located in the vehicle and the vehicle manufacturers have remote access to the computer chips. They revealed this is a letter to the Federal Trade Commission that, at this writing, has gone unanswered. The senators complained that the computer chips in late-model vehicles retain the records of the location and driving habits utilized by the operator of each vehicle....



High profile US COVID jab pusher reveals he is now ‘vaccine-injured’

Chris Cuomo, once a prominent advocate of COVID-19 gene therapy during his tenure at CNN, is now reevaluating his position after reportedly suffering from vaccine-related side effects. Previously, Cuomo regularly appeared alongside Don Lemon, advocating for stricter measures against the unvaccinated, including restrictions on grocery shopping, attending sporting events, and participating in social gatherings.He even referred to the unvaccinated as ‘the enemy within’ America. However, following his own experience with vaccine side effects, Cuomo is pledging to investigate the potential harm linked to COVID-19 vaccines. This shift marks a significant change in his perspective...



Giant Johan Castberg FPSO Prepares to Set Sail

The vessel that will tap Norway’s newest oil field is now undergoing final checks before setting sail for the Barents Sea, the latest stage of the country’s push to extract more resources from the Arctic. The startup of the the Johan Castberg development later this year “opens up a new oil province in the Barents Sea, and this field can become a hub for new discoveries,” Equinor ASA Chief Executive Officer Anders Opedal said, speaking to dockyard workers on Tuesday at the coastal village of Stord, Norway. Once the infrastructure is in place, it will be easier to connect additional oil finds to the floating production, storage and offloading vessel, he said....



ADL sides with genocide; is opposed to free speech

Israel's number-one supporter right now appears to be the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), which is working really hard to sanitize Israel's image amid its ongoing genocide in Gaza. A self-described "anti-hate" organization with a mission "to stop the defamation of the Jewish people and to secure justice and fair treatment to all," ADL wants you to believe that the people protesting at college campuses against Israel's aggressive military operation in Gaza are "terrorists," and that Israel is only "defending itself." With more than 34,000 Palestinians now dead at the hands of Israel Defense Forces (IDF) – most of these are women and children – ADL has a tall order trying to convince the public that Israel is playing the role of the good guy in all this with its ongoing genocide...



The Beast of Ideology Lifts the Lid on Transformation

The Transformation is accelerating. The harsh, often violent, police repression of student protests across the US and Europe, in wake of the continuing Palestinian massacres, exposes sheer intolerance towards those voicing condemnation against the violence in Gaza. The category of “hate speech” enacted into law has become so ubiquitous and fluid that criticism of the conduct of Israel’s behaviour in Gaza and the West Bank is now treated as a category of extremism and as a threat to the state. Confronted by criticism of Israel, the ruling élites respond by angrily lashing out. Is there a boundary (still) between criticism and anti-semitism? In the West the two increasingly are being made to cohere...



How have the Red Sea attacks impacted the superyacht sector?

The Red Sea, a vital maritime corridor linking the Mediterranean Sea and the Indian Ocean via the Suez Canal, has long been recognised for its strategic economic importance. Since October 2023, the security dynamics have dramatically shifted. The region's shipping lanes are increasingly compromised by activities linked to Iran and its affiliated non-state actors, such as proxy militias, reflecting a broader escalation in regional tensions. By mid-March of this year, 34 vessels had reported damage from drone missile attacks. On 13 April 2024, a significant development occurred as international media reported that Iranian forces seized the container ship Aries in the Strait of Hormuz. This event was...

The Kingston Report

What Happened to their Babies?

In Pfizer's baby and toddler study, there was a subgroup of 344 babies. Only 3 babies (less than 1%) made it to the end of the study. Pfizer's mRNA injections are not safe for babies. They're lethal. May 6, 2024: In July of 2022 I began reporting on my analysis of Pfizer’s Phase-3 trial data of babies and toddlers from the ages of 6 months to 4 years old. I don’t understand how any human being with a soul could have carried out these criminal experiments on innocent babies and toddlers. Pfizer’s FDA submitted data documented that the some of the babies and toddlers experienced fevers of greater than 104 degrees Fahrenheit, seizures (with eye rolling), convulsions, and seizures lasting more than 5 minutes and multiple seizures a day -sometimes a dozen or more, brain damage confirmed by an EEG, hypotonia (limp ‘lifeless-like’ baby), and lissencephaly (“genetically-induced” brain malformation characterized by the absence of convolutions/folds) in babies and toddlers injected with mRNA nanoparticles. This was mass murder of babies and toddlers under the guise of an “FDA clinical trial.” Pfizer operated outside of their contract and outside of the laws that regulate the US biologics industry. Pfizer is not protected by any US laws for the crimes they have committed, regardless of what many have been told...

2024 Will Be the Year of World War 3, Experts Warn

The war in the Middle East that was intentionally sparked in 2023 is going to turn into World War 3 by 2024, experts have warned. As shown below, fighting along Israel’s northern border has escalated in the last several days, and this is causing many experts to blow the whistle on the horrors likely to come.  Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has publicly declared that he plans to end the conflict in the south before dealing with Hezbollah, but he may not have a choice in the matter.  Hezbollah forces continue to fire at targets in northern Israel and the IDF continues to carry out strikes in response.  In fact, it is being reported that the IDF just attacked “a Hezbollah military headquarters in Lebanon”…



Top Study: Covid Shots Cause Psychosis

A new peer-reviewed study has found that Covid shots cause “new-onset psychosis” among the vaccinated.

The study, published in the renowned “Frontiers in Psychiatry” journal, found that the risk of psychological conditions forming increases with every injection a person receives. In the study’s paper, the researchers document the link between the mRNA and viral vector Covid injections and new-onset psychosis. The study was conducted by leading psychiatry and narcology experts from the Riga Stradins University and the University of Latvia in Riga, Latvia. Psychosis is described as a psychological condition. Those afflicted with psychosis lose touch with reality, fail to distinguish fact from fiction and suffer from hallucinations and delusions. In the “Conclusion” section of the study, the researchers note that “…data suggest a potential link between young age, mRNA, and viral vector vaccines with new-onset psychosis...

Bill Gates Admits Testing Nanotech on Public with mRNA Vaccines

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates has admitted to testing self-assembling nanoparticle technology on the public using Covid mRNA shots. A video emerged of Gates giddily explaining how he’s been funding efforts to experiment on the public with the dangerous nanotech. He revealed that his Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has used the pandemic to “mess around” with nanoparticle technology via the Covid shots. Gates also suggests that his Foundation has been experimenting with mRNA injections and nanoparticles in treating “every disease” that doesn’t “have vaccines.” “For every disease that we don’t have vaccines, we will try mRNA,” said Gates, who isn’t a doctor or a scientist...



How to Stop the W.H.O.

NOW: 10 Tips for lawmakers title&publication_id=746368&post_id=144363570&utm_campaign=email-post-title&isFreemail=true&r=pf6gr&triedRedirect=true&utm_medium=email

Important to share this, and I am happy to speak or zoom with any Parliamantarians or Congress members with questions


What can lawmakers do to stop the Pandemic Agreement (Treaty) and amendments to the International Health Regulations (2005) (IHR) from going forward at the 77th World Health Assembly (WHA) meeting, taking place from May 27 to June 1, 2024?


1. The easiest way forward is to ask your government to demand a delay in the process, according to the WHO's failure to meet the IHR Article 55 notice requirement.


There are less than 3 weeks until the World Health Assembly meets, and yet there are no final drafts of either treaty.  Negotiations are continuing, with meetings scheduled up until May 17.


Clearly, nations will not have sufficient time to evaluate either final document prior to a vote, particularly as translating the documents into many languages will consume even more time.  The Netherlands' lower house of Parliament has already instructed its government to request a delay, and if there is no delay, instructed its government to vote NO on both treaties.


Amendments to the International Health Regulations are required to be shared at least 4 months before a vote on them, according to IHR (2005) Article 55(2):


    "The text of any proposed amendment shall be communicated to all States Parties by the Director-General at least four months before the Health Assembly at which it is proposed for consideration."


Confirming this deadline, the WHO's IHR amendments Review Committee noted in its October 23, 2022 Terms of Reference that:


    "January 2024: WGIHR (the Working Group negotiating the IHR) submits their final package of proposed amendments to the DG who will communicate them to all States Parties in accordance with Article 55.2, for the consideration of the Seventy-seventh World Health Assembly"


The WHO incontrovertibly missed this deadline, despite excusing itself by claiming to interpret these documents differently than their clear meaning.


While the Pandemic Agreement is a new document, and there is no specific timeline by which it is required to be shared with all member states, the WHO's Rules of Procedure (Rule 14) require that all relevant documents be made available 6 weeks ahead of a proposed meeting:


    "Copies of all reports and other documents relating to the provisional agenda of any session shall be made available on the Internet and sent by the Director-General to Members and Associate Members and to participating intergovernmental organizations at the same time as the provisional agenda or not less than six weeks before the commencement of a regular session of the Health Assembly"


This '6 week' requirement clearly applies to the Pandemic Agreement.  Therefore, the deadlines required for completing and presenting both documents to the member states, according to the WHO's own rules, have been disregarded.[1]


Instead, the WHO appears to be making up new procedures while ignoring its existing rules.  The WHO is supposed to be the servant of its member states, not their master, and it has no right to ignore the rules and push ahead with votes for anything at this late date.


2.  Can your states or provinces assert their legal sovereignty over healthcare?


The United States Constitution places responsibility for healthcare in the states and not the federal government.  Two states, Florida and Utah, have already passed legislation denying jurisdiction to the WHO in their states.  Several other states are in the process of passing legislation that will also deny jurisdiction to the WHO, and in some cases deny jurisdiction to the UN and the World Economic Forum as well.


If your nation regulates healthcare at the level of the state or province, like Germany, this may be a valid strategy for you as well.


Furthermore, in the European Union, the EU government's level of competence to make healthcare decisions for its member nations is questionable, and its right to negotiate with the WHO, to vote and to make decisions on health should be explored.


3.  Is the proliferation or transfer of biological warfare agents, also known as Potential Pandemic Pathogens or Select Agents, legal in your nation?


In the United States, domestic regulations implementing the 1972 Biological Weapons Convention place legal restrictions on activities that are planned for the WHO's BioHub and Pathogen Access and Benefit Sharing system (Pandemic Agreement Article 12).  These agents cannot be transferred without permission from the US government, and there are restrictions on shipping them commercially.  These issues have not been addressed in any drafts of the Pandemic Agreement, which advocates widespread sharing of pathogens in a manner that is illegal in the US.


4.  Has your Parliament addressed the question of whether the WHO's pandemic prevention, preparedness and response (PPPR) program is more likely to reduce pandemics or increase them?  Improve pandemic management or worsen it?


Increasing the number of laboratories that handle, transfer and study potential pandemic pathogens increases the risk of lab leaks, accidents and deliberate release.  Putting the genetic sequences of pathogens online, as the WHO documents require, opens the door to hackers downloading the sequences and producing the pathogens.


There are many reasons to think that the transformation of the WHO into the governor of world health during pandemics, and in some cases between pandemics, could be problematic for global health.


The WHO is not a center of pandemic expertise.  Its handling of the two largest Ebola epidemics in 2014 and 2018-9, the 2009 swine flu pandemic and COVID is widely acknowledged to leave much to be desired.  Who decided that increased legal authority should be put into the hands of the WHO, given its poor track record on providing pandemic advice and managing pandemics?  Who decided that a "one-size-fits-all" approach to pandemic management, everywhere in the world, was desirable?  There has been no review of the WHO's functioning during COVID, which should be required before handing more authority to the organization.


5.  Does your government know that the Pandemic Agreement would give a blank check to the WHO, both in terms of the cost of its new programs, but also in terms of the scope of what the WHO will be able to do?


Drafts of the Pandemic Agreement propose creating a Conference of Parties, which will make its own rules and create its own subcommittees.  It will also be responsible for financial aspects of the PPPR program.  There are very few specifics in the drafts.  The World Bank has estimated a yearly cost for the program, including 'One Health,' of $41 billion dollars yearly, more than ten times the current WHO budget.


Dues now cover only 15% of the WHO budget.  Current dues might only cover 1% of the transformed WHO budget.  Who will pay the rest?  What benefits will donors expect to receive?  Will nations be forced to take on considerable debt for the new program?  Who will loan the money for the Global Biodefense Agenda when there will never be a positive financial return?


6.  Demand that individual votes on the two instruments be recorded (in other words, a roll call vote must be taken) and that votes must take place in the full World Health Assembly, with a quorum present.


The WHO Constitution provides several possible procedures for voting.  Yet prior votes on IHR (2005) amendments did not follow the rules.  It seems that a questionable "consensus procedure" took place in May 2022 in Committee A regarding amendments to the IHR (2005), as shown in the WHO's videos, but that the full WHA never voted, as required.


Twelve Members of the European Parliament wrote to the WHO Director-General in November 2023 asking for evidence that a WHA vote on the 2022 amendments took place. They requested an answer in 48 hours.  Three months later, they had received no reply.


The UK Health Minister said in Parliament on December 18, 2023, that all prior decisions on IHR amendments had been decided by consensus.  This implies there has never been a vote on IHR amendments.  Encourage your government to demand a vote according to the rules, and that a roll call is taken so nations will be accountable for their votes.


7.  Demand that your Parliament must ratify any treaties that your nation signs.


In the US, the present Administration has said it planned to sign both instruments as Executive Agreements, bypassing Congress.  Many Congressmembers, including 49 Senators, are demanding that the Senate ratify the documents, which will require a 2/3 vote in favor.  A 2/3 majority will be very difficult to achieve when 49% of the Senate has asked the US to withdraw support of the instruments.


8.  Point out that WHO officials are dishonest


Why would our nations turn over management of pandemics to a dishonest agency?


a)     The Pandemic Agreement states it will not usurp national sovereignty.  The WHO's Director-General has repeatedly said the same thing.  But this is clearly not true.  It was disputed by the UK's former Attorney-General and by 49 US Senators, among others.


b)     The Pandemic Agreement has had 5 different names during its negotiations.


c)     The WHO's principal legal officer, Steven Solomon, misled the WGIHR regarding the text and meaning of Article 55(2) of the IHR.  He claimed that because the Working Group is neither a State Party nor the Director-General himself, the four-month advance notice for submission of amendments rule in Article 55 did not apply, which is a gross misinterpretation of the document.[2]


d)     While the WHO claims that negotiating the Pandemic Agreement is a "Member State led process,"[3] in fact the process is being driven by the WHO Bureau and Secretariat to exclude many nations from having a voice.  This was confirmed in an open letter to the WHO Director-General signed by 161 NGOs, dated April 26, 2024.[4]


9.  Point out that the amendments and Pandemic Agreement are unconstitutional


In the US, strong arguments can be made that these instruments transgress the 1st, 4th, 10th and 14th amendments to the Constitution.  They also transgress other Constitutions, for example by abrogating free speech.


10.  The WHO was created in 1948 to provide advice and charitable assistance to nations, when requested.  These instruments would transform it into a "Biohub" library of potential pandemic pathogens, and the governor of global health during public health emergencies (or likely ones) whenever the WHO Director-General unilaterally declares them.


Has your Parliament discussed the ramifications of this transformation, and whether these changes in the nature of the organization is what it wishes to support?  These instruments delegate administrative authority to an unelected, non-governmental entity, a rare development in international law.


Your nation can withdraw from the negotiations, and/or announce that it will not be bound by either treaty.

Who Owns the World Health Organization

and Their Plan to Vaccinate and Digitally Track Every Human Being on the Planet?






The WHO, however, is simply a puppet organization that is funded by Globalist Billionaires, so let’s put some faces to this organization and reveal who is really behind this effort to vaccinate every single person on the planet, and then track everyone via digital IDs. It is commonly reported in the media that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is one of the largest contributors to the WHO, second only to the United States, and outspending all other nations of the world. But this is not entirely correct. The actual truth is that Bill Gates, along with the organizations he controls, is, by far, the LARGEST contributor to the WHO. Only 13% of the WHO budget comes from assessed contributions, which are set amounts paid by member-state governments, scaled by income and population, of which the United States is the largest donor. The other 87% comes from mostly private institutions and individuals...



Beyond Impossible - The Truth Behind the Fake Meat Industry...

449 comments as of press time at 4:23PM Monday, May 6, 2024 Coordinated Universal Time (UTC)

Beyond Impossible exposes the corruption of the fake meat industry and how it ties in with the sinister plans of a global elite. Health expert Vinnie Tortorich asks the intriguing question: What do Harvard University, internet Vegans and the World Economic Forum all have in common? A religious desire for the world to go Vegan. But why? Is it an effort to stop global warming? Is it an earnest attempt at making everyone healthier? Is it a desperate plea to end animal cruelty? The answers may surprise you. Beyond Impossible reveals an uncomfortable truth about a world where peoples good intentions are being taken advantage of by everyone from Vegan doctors to global elites hell bent on instituting planetary policies that remove all personal choices from the kitchen and beyond. To name a few, the characters involved include a Harvard doctor who wants to tax consumers into the healthy choice, a fake meat inventor who has a fascination with snapping cows out of existence, a vegan leader who bares a strong resemblance to Jesus Christ and a German engineer and economist who dreams of starting task forces to realize his dreams of a global reset. Joined by experts that include doctors, journalists and even former vegans, Vinnie Tortorich maintains that while we still have the power of free will, it's only a matter of time before it's too late.



The Summit of the Future and the Pact for the Future

Will Rapidly Expand the Technocratic Takeover

The United Nations will meet in September for the 79th session of the UN General Assembly, as well as the highly-anticipated “Summit of the Future” where nations will sign the so-called “Pact for the Future”. The Pact is expected to call for declaring a “planetary emergency”. What does this agreement and its policies mean for the future of individual and national sovereignty? By the end of September, the United Nations member states may vote to radically alter the UN itself, what some are calling UN 2.0, and the very nature of how nation-states make decisions regarding the future of the planet. The UN will convene for the 79th session of the General Assembly in New York City starting on September 10th in New York City. The high-level general debate will begin on the 24th of September...



Death is her hobby

Pfizer boss: “Cancer is our new Covid”.

Now that the “corona pandemic” is over and demand for Covid vaccines is falling, Pfizer is focusing on treating cancer, CEO Albert Bourla told Fox Business. The company expects great success with cancer drugs. Bourla even used the word “blockbuster.” The pandemic brought his company record sales. In 2002 alone, Pfizer sold $157 billion worth of products. Last year sales fell to 71 billion. Since the end of 2022, Pfizer's share price has fallen 42 percent...



Fake meat: It’s all part of a plan to control the entire food supply

What do Harvard University, internet vegans and the World Economic Forum all have in common? A religious desire for the world to go vegan. But why? Is it an effort to stop global warming? Is it an earnest attempt at making everyone healthier? Is it a desperate plea to end animal cruelty? The answers may surprise you. The documentary ‘Beyond Impossible – The Truth Behind the Fake Meat Industry’ argues that lab-grown and cultured meats, as ultra-processed foods, could pose significant health risks, challenging the perceived benefits of these meat alternatives. Fake meats lack essential nutrients found in natural meats, including specific amino acids that are crucial for muscle maintenance and overall health...



Is the Public Ready for the Truth About COVID Vaccines?

RealClear Health this month published an op-ed by Dr. Pierre Kory, president and chief medical officer of the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance, and journalist Mary Beth Pfeiffer that raised questions about COVID-19 vaccines and rising cancer rates. Is it a sign that mainstream media is finally ready to allow debate on the vaccines? Are mainstream media and the public becoming more open to news and perspectives contradicting the establishment narrative on COVID-19, the vaccines and the prevailing public health policies of the past four years? If so, can such incremental change eventually lead to a transformation in public attitudes...



The Deep State is behind fact-checking on social media

Nearly four years of mainstream media hype about "fake news" and "Russian interference" propaganda have brought to the world exactly what they were intended to bring: an effective mechanism for Internet and social media censorship. At the center of this move toward global discourse control is an organization called the Poynter Institute, which is home to the International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN), a body designed to coordinate, promote and train dozens of fact-checkers from around the world. The IFCN and many non-profit organizations working in the same field are funded by the great capitalist "philanthropists" of our time, such as George Soros, Pierre Omidyar, Bill Gates and even the Koch brothers, but also by the US State Department and a shady "aid organization " - in reality a political meddling - the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), which has historically been linked to the CIA and regime change operations...



Reiner Fuellmich Speaks Out From Prison In Germany

The German court system is practicing “lawfare” against Reiner Fuellmich, but as their case is falling apart, it is reminiscent of Deep State “made-out-of-thin-air” attacks to smear American dissidents in recent years. In the meantime, he has been languishing in a maximum-security prison...

France sends combat troops to Ukraine battlefront

France has sent its first troops officially to Ukraine. They have been deployed in support of the Ukrainian 54th Independent Mechanized Brigade in Slavyansk. The French soldiers are drawn from France’s 3rd Infantry Regiment, which is one of the main elements of France’s Foreign Legion (Légion étrangère). In 2022 France had a number of Ukrainians and Russians in the Foreign Legion. They were allowed to leave the Legion and, in the case of the Ukrainians, return to Ukraine to join Ukrainian forces. It isn’t clear if the Russians returned home...



BlackRock boss lets the cat out of the bag

In countries with shrinking populations, people can be more easily replaced by machines

In the developed world, countries with shrinking populations are the big winners. BlackRock CEO Larry Fink said this at a World Economic Forum meeting in Saudi Arabia. “Most people never talked about it,” Fink said. “We have always assumed that a shrinking population leads to negative growth.” But this is not the case, as artificial intelligence and robotics are developing rapidly in these countries. This will improve the standard of living even as the population shrinks, said Fink. In countries with shrinking populations, it will be much easier to replace people with machines. “This man sets the agenda, not the WEF, not the national parliaments, not the European Parliament,” notes Patrick Savalle. “Larry Fink can impose his will on all major Atlantic companies.” “Now he believes we need robots and AI to make our lives better. “See this as marching orders for our politicians,” he adds...

Baker warns of potential ‘Bird Flu’ pandemic

With growing concern from ‘experts’ over the potential threat of a ‘bird flu’ pandemic, epidemiologist Michael Baker told legacy media we need to be prepared as cases of avian virus exposure continue to surface globally. While there is currently no evidence of human-to-human transmission, data indicates a concerning case fatality rate of over 50% among individuals allegedly infected by birds. In New Zealand, authorities from the Ministry for Primary Industries and the Department of Conservation are actively developing a national contingency plan in anticipation of a possible outbreak.

New York Times Investigation Finds People Injured by COVID Vaccines Are Being ‘Ignored’

After years of reporting on news about vaccine injuries as “misinformation” and “conspiracy theory,” The New York Times today reported that “thousands” may have been injured by the COVID-19 vaccines — but ran accompanying articles declaring the shots safe and life-saving. The New York Times today reported that COVID-19 vaccine injuries exist and that vaccine-injured people have been ignored. Those findings resulted from a yearlong investigation into the issue, the paper said...



Vitamin D Reduces Cancer Mortality

.-.Worldwide, cancer is the No. 2 cause of death, behind only cardiovascular disease.5 Meanwhile, the global prevalence of vitamin D deficiency (defined as a level of less than 20 ng/mL) and insufficiency (defined as a level of 20 to less than 30 ng/mL) is 40% to 100%.6 Although increasing vitamin D levels may help to reduce cancer deaths, health officials rarely recommend optimizing levels for this purpose. For example, research has shown that once you reach a minimum serum vitamin D level of 40 ng/mL, your risk for cancer diminishes by 67%, compared to having a level of 20 ng/mL or less. A 2023 systematic review and meta-analysis published in Ageing Research Reviews also found vitamin D3 supplementation reduced cancer mortality by 6%. This wasn’t considered statistically significant, but when only studies involving daily vitamin D intake were analyzed, cancer mortality dropped by a significant 12%.8 According to the researchers...



Germany today…

“A Nazi lives here” – House defaced on May 1st because of the German flag

In Berlin-Neukölln, a residential building was daubed with slogans such as “A Nazi lives here” and “Kill Nazis” because an older man showed a German flag to the passing May Day demonstration. On the day after May Day, massive graffiti marks the image of a residential building in Neukölln. The focus is on the first floor of an older man who was targeted by suspected left-wing extremist demonstrators because he hoisted a German flag. On the facade of the house there are aggressive slogans such as “A Nazi lives here” and “Nazis out”, written directly on the ground in front of the shop on the ground floor. There is also red graffiti calling for a “Nazi-free zone” by May 8th...



US Congress Makes Downpayment on World War III

The US Congress authorized a $95 billion military aid package for continuing the wars in Ukraine and Gaza as well as for war preparations against China. This represents, in effect, a downpayment on World War III. US President Joe Biden, reading from a playbook that could well have been scripted by George Orwell, announced: “it’s a good day for world peace.” And in order to dispel any doubt, he added, “for real.” Biden proclaimed: “It’s going to make the world safer.” In fact, the bipartisan authorization, passed on April 23, could nudge the doomsday clock a little closer to midnight...

A good 987 million euros for the development of India

RV - Berlin: (hib/VOM) Last year, the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) promised India bilateral development cooperation funds amounting to 987.52 million euros. Of this, 919.5 million euros relate to financial cooperation and 36 million euros to technical cooperation, as the federal government announced in its answer (20/5432) to a minor question from the AfD parliamentary group (20/5196). India would benefit from 32.02 million euros from the special initiative “A World Without Hunger”. By 2030, Germany wants to provide at least ten billion euros as part of the partnership for green and sustainable development agreed with India, including for the expansion of agroecological approaches in the amount of 300 million euros by 2025 and for the expansion of renewable energies in the amount of 2025 one billion euros.



Lloyd’s Insurers Expect Moderate Baltimore Bridge Claims

Lloyd’s of London insurers Hiscox and Lancashire do not expect large insurance claims from the collapse of Baltimore’s Francis Scott Key Bridge in March that caused widespread disruption, they said on Thursday. Some estimates for the total insured losses from the bridge collapse run into billions of dollars, given the loss of lives, bridge repair costs and traffic re-routing. Hiscox does not have direct exposure to the business interruption policy of the port, which is the busiest in the United States for auto shipments, or the property policy covering the bridge, the insurer said in its first-quarter trading statement...



Germany’s Secret Pedophilia Experiments

A sickening and bizarre sexual experiment was carried out by German government officials and a pedophile scientist that deliberately placed troubled children in the care of pedophiles to see if it had “positive consequences.” Victims from this utterly horrifying practice have filed a lawsuit exposing the grotesque details of this taxpayer-funded pedophilia experiment. In 1969, the Berlin welfare authorities assigned Dr Helmut Kentler, head of the department of social pedagogy at the Pedagogical Center, at least three homeless teenagers for foster care, who were then assigned to known pedophile parents by Kentler. Astonishingly, he had been able to convince the West Berlin Senate that pedophilia could have “Positive consequences” and could help homeless children lead “Proper, unremarkable lives.” These experiments, called the Kentler experiments, were carried on from 1969 to 2003...

Patent document shows that DARPA built covid with the help of Bill Gates, WHO



RV - A patent has emerged to show that the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) was hatched nearly two years prior to its public release, proving that it did not randomly appear in bats at a wet market. Great Britain's Serco Group approved the patent filing for the Chinese Virus a full 17 months before it first appeared, and the entities listed as its creators are many of the usual suspects: DARPA, Bill and Melinda Gates, Defra, the Wellcome Trust and the European Commission. A filing with the United States Patent Office also lists The Pirbright Institute as a funder of the Wuhan Flu. Pirbright, as we reported before this whole thing spiraled out of control, is directly funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates "nonprofit"...

AstraZeneca admits it’s jab could cause potentially fatal side effect

The UK-Swedish pharmaceutical company has said its jab could cause blood clots ‘in rare cases’. Pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca has for the first time admitted that its Covid-19 vaccine could cause a rare side effect that can lead to blood clots and death, according to court documents. The company is fighting a class action lawsuit alleging that its inoculation, which was developed in collaboration with the University of Oxford, can result in death and serious injury. The legal battle was initiated by Jamie Scott, a father of two, who suffered a blood clot that left him with brain damage after he was vaccinated in April 2021 in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. He is seeking compensation over claims that the AstraZeneca vaccine is “defective” and less safe than was expected, an allegation the...



The Global South is not participating in the West's CO2 policy

The energy transition and the “Green Deal” are inventions of financial capital, which is looking for new ways to invest its stashed billions. Above all, it also serves the fight against farmers and agriculture. In the global south, however, this is increasingly seen and rejected as a new form of colonialism. A perfect example is an argument between a colonialist BBC journalist Stephen Sackur and the President of Guyana, Irfaan Ali. He publicly calls out the hypocrisy of those who urge countries like his to forgo their wealth to pursue a "green" agenda...

More polio cases now caused by vaccine than by wild virus

LONDON (AP) — Four African countries have reported new cases of polio linked to the oral vaccine, as global health numbers show there are now more children being paralyzed by viruses originating in vaccines than in the wild. In a report late last week, the World Health Organization and partners noted nine new polio cases caused by the vaccine in Nigeria, Congo, Central African Republic and Angola. Seven countries elsewhere in Africa have similar outbreaks and cases have been reported in Asia. Of the two countries where polio remains endemic, Afghanistan and Pakistan, vaccine-linked cases have been identified in Pakistan. In rare cases, the live virus in oral polio vaccine can mutate into a form capable of sparking new outbreaks. All the current vaccine-derived polio cases have been sparked by a Type 2 virus contained in the vaccine. Type 2 wild virus was eliminated years ago. Polio is a highly infectious disease that spreads in contaminated water or food and usually strikes children under 5. About one in 200 infections results in paralysis. Among those, a small percentage die when their breathing muscles are crippled...



12% of emergency shelter beds in London, Ont., occupied by asylum seekers

As shelter capacities in places like Toronto, Ottawa, Windsor and Niagara Falls reach their limits, more migrants have been making their way to London 'due to proximity for alternative housing options and support.' The emergency shelter system in London, Ontario, is buckling under pressure from an influx of asylum seekers. Nearly 12% of emergency shelter bed usage between May 1, 2023, and March 31, 2024, was attributed to migrants, according to a city report. The number of asylum seekers has been climbing in Canada in recent years, with CBC reporting the 60,000 claims filed midway through 2023 were “the highest count in almost a decade.” Costs for housing the migrants in London were totalled $1,070,316, the report said...
