U.S. Navy Seizes Weapons Cache from Stateless Fishing Vessel in Arabian Sea – by Mike Schuler – https://gcaptain.com/u-s-navy-seizes-weapons-cache-from-stateless-fishing-vessel-in-arabian-sea/ – “U.S. Navy ships this week seized approximately 1,400 AK-47 assault rifles and 226,600 rounds of ammunition from a stateless fishing vessel during a flag verification boarding in the North Arabian Sea on December 20, the Navy’s 5th Fleet said in a statement… The U.S. Navy patrol coastal ships, USS Tempest (PC 2) and USS Typhoon (PC 5), found the weapons during a search conducted by embarked U.S. Coast Guard personnel in accordance with customary international law. The illicit weapons and ammunition were later transported to guided-missile destroyer USS O’Kane (DDG 77) where they await final disposition… The stateless vessel was assessed to have originated in Iran and transited international waters along a route historically used to traffic weapons unlawfully to the Houthis in Yemen. The direct or indirect supply, sale or transfer of weapons to the Houthis violates U.N. Security Council Resolutions and U.S. sanctions… The vessel’s five crew members identified themselves as Yemeni nationals and will be returned to Yemen… After removing the crew and illicit cargo, U.S. naval forces determined the stateless vessel was a hazard to navigation for commercial shipping and sank it.” (emphasis added)

Russia Publishes Details of Security Proposals Sent to US and NATO – by Dave Decamp and Patrick Henningsen – https://21stcenturywire.com/2021/12/20/russia-publishes-details-of-security-proposals-sent-to-us-and-nato/– “In case you missed it, Russia issued two documents last week to both the U.S. and NATO, demanding that the Washington-led alliance take immediate steps to halt its eastward expansion, and cease its provocations against Russia… ‘The United States of America shall undertake to prevent further eastward expansion of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and deny accession to the Alliance to the States of the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics… The United States of America shall not establish military bases in the territory of the States of the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics that are not members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, use their infrastructure for any military activities or develop bilateral military cooperation with them.’.. The proposal calls for the US and Russia to refrain from deploying military forces to areas where such deployments can be viewed as a threat… The document reads: ‘The Parties shall refrain from flying heavy bombers equipped for nuclear or non-nuclear armaments or deploying surface warships of any type, including in the framework of international organizations, military alliances or coalitions, in the areas outside national airspace and national territorial waters respectively, from where they can attack targets in the territory of the other Party.’.. Western media reports portrayed Russia’s proposals as “tough demands” that will almost certainly be rejected. NATO officials told The New York Times that the proposal concerning NATO expansion was “unacceptable,” although they said they were still open to dialogue with Moscow.”

Europe On Edge Of Energy Disaster As Power Prices Smash All Records – by Tyler Durden – https://www.zerohedge.com/commodities/europes-energy-crisis-rapidly-intensifies-power-prices-scream-higher – “Europe’s energy crisis got even worse on Tuesday as a shortage of natural gas, nuclear outages, declining wind power output, and cold weather boosted prices… The gas price at the Dutch TTF hub, the benchmark gas price for Europe, soared 10% to a new record high of 165 euros per megawatt-hour after gas entering Germany at the Mallnow compressor station plunged to zero. Flows were diverted eastward to Poland… European gas prices hit a record high… Russia’s Gazprom PJSC has steadily reduced gas flows to Europe as the controversial Nord Stream 2 pipeline had its certification delayed until possibly July. No new flows into Europe are forcing utilities to drain their gas storages (already at seasonal lows). Some utilities have had to restart fossil fuel generators to avoid grid disruption… The energy crisis worsened in the last several days as France; usually, an exporter of power, has been desperately seeking imports and even restarted fuel-burning generators as the country’s top power utility, Electricite de France SA, halted four nuclear reactors accounting for 10% of the country’s nuclear capacity, straining power grids as the continent copes with cold weather… Germany will lose about half its nuclear capacity next year. As the Northern Hemisphere winter begins, the continent will be at the mercy of Mother Nature… Another issue developing this week is that Germany’s power output from thousands of wind turbines has plunged to five-week lows as cold weather strains the grid… As a result of the grid strain, German power prices climbed 30% to a record 431.98 euros per megawatt-hour.”

Austria Hiring People to “Hunt Down Vaccine Refusers” – by Paul Joseph Watson – https://www.activistpost.com/2021/12/austria-hiring-people-to-hunt-down-vaccine-refusers.html – “The burden for enforcing the fines unjabbed Austrians will have to pay as part of their punishment will fall to their employers, necessitating a new army of ‘inspectors’ to ensure that process is running smoothly… The city of Linz, which is home to 200,000 inhabitants, has a relatively low vaccination rate of 63 per cent… In response, “Linz now wants to hire people who are supposed to hunt down vaccine refusers,” reports Swiss news outlet Blick… The role of the inspectors will be to check on ‘whether those who do not get vaccinated really pay for it.’.. The vaccine refusenik hunters will receive a wage of 2774 euros, which will be paid 14 times a year, making an annual income of 38,863 euros… As we previously highlighted, the unvaccinated in Austria could find themselves imprisoned for a year under a new administrative law that would force them to pay for their own internment… Austrians who don’t get vaccinated by February face fines of up to €7,200 ($8,000) for non-compliance, and those who refuse to pay would also face a 12-month jail sentence.”

7 Bombshells: After Court Victory, Military Members Seek New Injunction Against COVID ‘Vaccine’ Mandates – by David DeGraw – https://degraw.substack.com/p/7-bombshells-after-court-victory – “It’s getting hard to keep up with all of our court victories… After a judge last month rejected the “Pentagon’s” blatant lie that the Pfizer-BioNTech and Comirnaty COVID mRNA injections are “interchangeable,” U.S. military members involved in a lawsuit challenging the military’s COVID mRNA injection mandate filed an amended complaint seeking a new injunction… Before jumping into this article, I want to reiterate a point we’ve made several times, the “Pentagon” deliberately, strategically deceived military service members into thinking that the injection that they were getting was FDA-approved, which was a COMPLETE LIE!!.. That is what the previous victory proved… U.S. military members involved in a lawsuit challenging the military’s COVID vaccine mandate on Dec. 10 filed an amended complaint seeking a new injunction… The move came after a judge last month rejected the U.S. Department of Defense’s (DOD) assertion the Pfizer-BioNTech and Comirnaty COVID vaccines are “interchangeable, but before the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Marines began discharging unvaccinated service members… On Nov. 12, U.S. Federal District Judge Allen Winsor of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida denied plaintiffs’ original request for a preliminary injunction against the military’s vaccine mandate… However, in his order denying the injunction, Judge Winsor acknowledged that under the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) statute, ‘recipients of EUA drugs must be “informed” … of the option to accept or refuse administration of the product.’..”

UK Government report admits there are 23.5 Million people in England who have NOT had a single dose of a Covid-19 Vaccine https://dailyexpose.uk/2021/12/17/23-million-not-vaccinated-in-england/ – “For months the British public have been deceived with tales that there are just 5 million people in the United Kingdom who have refused to take up the offer of a Covid-19 vaccine. But today we can reveal that this is a lie… It is a complete fabrication that has no doubt been used to make those who have refused the jab feel as if they are part of a minority, because an official UK Government report proves that in England alone there are approximately 23.5 million people who have not had a single dose of a Covid-19 vaccine… It was back in September that the British public were told there were 5 million Brits who had so far refused the experimental jabs. Sir Patrick Vallance, the UK’s Chief Scientific Advisor and former president of GlaxoSmithKline, announced in a televised Covid-19 briefing that ‘There are five million or so people who are eligible for vaccines now who haven’t been vaccinated,’… Well it turns out the “or so” make up approximately another 10.3 million people in England alone as of December 17th 2021, bringing the grand total of people eligible to have the Covid-19 jab to 15.3 million, and 23.5 million when including all children under the age of 12… The population of England is approximately 56 million, and according to ‘Statista’ the 2020 figures show that approximately 3.23 million of those are aged 4 and under, and a further 3.54 million are aged between 5 and 9… Between Aug 16 and Dec 05, the unvaccinated population accounted for 11,767 Covid-19 hospitalisations. But the vaccinated population accounted for nearly double the amount, recording 19,730 hospitalisations, with 18,406 of those being among the 2/3 dose vaccinated population. This means the vaccinated population have accounted for 63% of Covid-19 hospitalisations since August 2021… It gets even worse for the vacinated population when it comes to deaths though… Between 16 Aug 21 and 05 Dec 21 there were 3,070 Covid-19 deaths among the unvaccinated population in England, compared to 12,058 deaths among the vaccinated population during the same time frame. That is a 293% difference… The public are being fed lie, after lie, after lie.”

Déjà vu – The UK is about to experience a huge wave of deaths among the Elderly and Vulnerable comparable to April 2020; but Covid-19 will NOT be to blame https://dailyexpose.uk/2021/12/15/huge-wave-of-deaths-coming-to-uk/ – “The UK is about to experience a huge wave of deaths among the elderly and most vulnerable population in scenes that will resemble those of April 2020. The public will be told that Covid-19 is to blame, but the truth is that the recipe for disaster that has been cooked up by the UK Government and its circle of scientific advisors will be solely responsible… A recipe that has included mandating vaccines for carers, dedicating the energy of the entire NHS to administering “booster” jabs to the nation, and the mass purchase of a drug known as midazolam yet again… In March 2020 the British people were ordered to stay at home, to protect the NHS, and save lives. But in reality the evidence suggests that the British people were ordered to stay at home, so the NHS could give midazolam to the elderly and vulnerable and pretend that they were Covid-19 deaths… Now the authorities are about to play this whole game again, this time under the guise of the alleged Omicron Covid-19 variant… On the 12th November 2021, the UK Governments Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) published a tender inviting suppliers to bid for ‘The Supply of ITY Medicines and End of Life Care Medicines for Covid-19 Preparedness’… With the description stating that the DHSC wish to ‘top up the stockpile holdings of Midazolam and Noradrenaline medicines in preparation for further waves of Covid-19 in Winter 2021 / Spring 2022’.”

Ukrainian contract soldiers and officers are fleeing en masse from the Ukrainian army fearing war against Russiahttps://avia-pro.net/news/ukrainskie-kontraktniki-i-oficery-massovo-begut-iz-ukrainskoy-armii-opasayas-voyny-protiv – “Due to the probable war between Ukraine and Russia, officers and contractors of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are fleeing en masse from the army… The growing tension on the border between Ukraine and Russia, which is likely to lead to a full-scale armed conflict, forced Ukrainian contractors and officers to leave the Armed Forces en masse. As it became known, in the last few months alone, the understaffing of Ukrainian units has increased by almost 15%. At the same time, Ukrainian contract soldiers and officers use any means in order to leave the service, starting from the banal refusal to renew contracts for service in the Armed Forces of Ukraine and ending with the commission of various kinds of misconduct that allow the latter to be dismissed from service.

REVIEW: ‘Laptop from Hell: Hunter Biden, Big Tech, and the Dirty Secrets the President Tried to Hide’ – by Alana Goodman – https://freebeacon.com/culture/review-laptop-from-hell-hunter-biden-big-tech-and-the-dirty-secrets-the-president-tried-to-hide/ – “In the spring of 2019, in between bouts of crack smoking and trysts with prostitutes, living out of hotels and stinking of smoke and booze, Hunter Biden made a strangely lucid decision. He got in a car, drove to a computer service shop, and dropped off his laptop for repair. The next day, he returned to give the clerk an external hard drive so that the contents could be extracted. Then he never came back… Why Hunter decided to take his computer to a repairman (and ultimately abandon it) two weeks before his father’s presidential announcement, rather than just buy a new one, could be an interesting puzzle for Freudian theorists. But out of that fateful decision comes Miranda Devine’s fascinating book Laptop from Hell: Hunter Biden, Big Tech, and the Dirty Secrets the President Tried to Hide… Devine’s gripping account of the Biden family’s sleazy business dealings, gleaned from the contents of Hunter’s hard drive, picks up where the New York Post‘s stellar pre-election reporting left off… Many of the details have been reported before in bits and pieces. Devine weaves them together with new direct reporting on correspondence and documents pulled from the laptop and puts them in context with what was happening at the time with Joe Biden’s vice presidency and presidential run… The book is a devastating chronicle of political corruption. From Ukraine to Mexico to China, Hunter Biden’s private correspondence shows how he and his family leveraged his father’s position to win high-paying, low-work gigs with shady foreign actors—and how Joe’s official actions at times directly benefited his family’s financial backers… At best, Joe Biden comes off as a hapless father who facilitates his son’s clearly unethical moneymaking schemes. At worst, and as some of Hunter’s texts and emails suggest, Joe was a knowing participant and beneficiary of the family business.”

Fentanyl Overdoses Become Leading Cause of Death in 18- to 45-Year-Olds – by Charlotte Cuthbertson – https://www.theepochtimes.com/mkt_morningbrief/fentanyl-overdoses-become-leading-cause-of-death-in-18-to-45-year-olds_4166280.html – Fentanyl-related drug overdoses in 2020 became the top killer in adults aged 18 to 45—overtaking suicide, vehicle accidents, and gun violence, according to an analysis of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data by nonprofit group Families Against Fentanyl… The substance is most often manufactured in Mexico using chemicals supplied from China and trafficked across the southern border by Mexican drug cartels. Fentanyl is mixed with other narcotics to increase potency as well as pressed into counterfeit pain pills that are made to look like blue Oxycodone prescription pills and are commonly known as “Mexican oxys.”.. Families Against Fentanyl is advocating for the U.S. government to designate fentanyl and its analogs as a weapon of mass destruction under federal statute… More than 100,000 Americans, a record amount, died of drug overdoses in the 12-month period ending in April, according to CDC data. Fentanyl was involved in almost two-thirds of those deaths… During 2020, as lockdowns became prolonged and widespread as a response to the pandemic, overdose fatalities accelerated… ‘This represents a worsening of the drug overdose epidemic in the United States,’ the CDC stated in an emergency health advisory issued more than a year ago, on Dec. 17, 2020.”
