Report: 5G Connections “to nearly double this year to 1.2 Billion” (Chart Included) – by B.N. Frank – https://www.activistpost.com/2022/06/report-5g-connections-to-nearly-double-this-year-to-1-2-billion-chart-included.html – “So far, for the most part, 5G service has received bad reviews (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8), including being described as a “complete hot mess.” Additionally, opposition to 5G is worldwide due to various significant safety issues associated with it. In fact, since 2017 doctors and scientists have asked for 5G moratoriums on Earth and in space (see 1, 2) and the majority of scientists oppose deployment. Since 2018 there have been reports of people and animals experiencing symptoms and illnesses after it was activated (see 1, 2. 3, 4, 5). Some researchers have also claimed that activation may be contributing to COVID-19 infections as well as hundreds of thousands if not millions of bird deaths. In the U.S., experts also continue to warn about aviation safety risks associated with activation. All of this and more has limited, slowed, and/or stopped deployment in some locations; however, the controversial “Race for 5G” continues to speed up anyway.”
Anomalies and Curious Facts Surrounding the Shooting in Uvalde, Texas – Summary by JW Williams, Research by Jim Fetzer – https://needtoknow.news/2022/06/anomalies-and-curious-facts-surrounding-the-shooting-in-uvalde-texas/ – “Uvalde, Texas: On May 24, 2022, Salvador Ramos,18, reportedly shot his grandmother in the face, crashed her truck into a ditch, shot at funeral-home employees and then entered Robb Elementary School and shot 19 children and two teachers to death… The police-action timeline changed numerous times over the past few weeks. It was first reported that they waited outside the school for backup for almost an hour because they were afraid of being shot. However, the police walked back a number of narratives and made these corrections: the school door shut when the gunman entered, Ramos was not confronted by a school officer, Ramos was not barricaded in a room by police, Ramos was not wearing body armor, and a responding officer was reported to have saved his own child… https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/uvalde-shootings-evolving-narrative-are-details-police-walked-back-rcna31391… There are many discrepancies and unanswered questions. Nevertheless, the city said it will not release bodycam videos or other records before its investigation is complete – which likely will take a long time.”
‘Sent to certain death’: Why growing numbers of Ukrainian servicemen are refusing to fight on the Donbass frontlines – by Petr Lavrenin – https://www.rt.com/russia/557314-ukrainian-soldiers-frontline-donbass/ – “Many Ukrainian soldiers are terrified by combat conditions and are asking for help on social media Ukrainian solders are increasingly abandoning their positions and posting videos with complaints about their command. Why is the number of desertions increasing in the war torn country?.. The total assistance of Western countries to Ukraine has already exceeded the country’s military budget for 2022, which was to amount to $12 billion. And this is without taking into account humanitarian donations from ordinary citizens all over the world. Very soon, Ukraine will receive another $20 billion for its military needs from the United States… It would seem that this huge infusion of funds and incessant supply of weapons from abroad should solve all the problems of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. However, its soldiers are increasingly abandoning their positions without authorization, refusing to go to the frontline in Donbass, and publishing video messages online in which they criticize their commanders. In this article, RT looks into why, despite foreign aid to Ukraine, the number of problems involving the deployment of military personnel is growing, and why Ukrainian soldiers are deserting more and more frequently… A scandalous bill submitted by [Ukraine’s parliament] Verkhovna Rada deputy Mariana Bezugla, giving officers the right to execute servicemen for desertion, was withdrawn on May 24. However, the very appearance of such an initiative clearly indicates that the problem is real, and the authorities are sounding the alarm.”
Russia’s Sergey Glazyev introduces the new global financial system – It will liberate the Global South from both western debt and IMF-induced austerity – by Pepe Escobar – https://www.informationclearinghouse.info/57058.htm – “Sergey Glazyev is a man living right in the eye of our current geopolitical and geo-economic hurricane. One of the most influential economists in the world, a member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, and a former adviser to the Kremlin from 2012 to 2019, for the past three years he has helmed Moscow’s uber strategic portfolio as Minister in Charge of Integration and Macroeconomics of the Eurasia Economic Union (EAEU).
Glazyev’s recent intellectual production has been nothing short of transformative, epitomized by his essay Sanctions and Sovereignty and an extensive discussion of the new, emerging geo-economic paradigm in an interview to a Russian business magazine… In another of his recent essays, Glazyev comments on how ‘I grew up in Zaporozhye, near which heavy fighting is now taking place in order to destroy the Ukrainian Nazis, who never existed in my small Motherland. I studied at a Ukrainian school and I know Ukrainian literature and language well, which from a scientific point of view is a dialect of Russian. I did not notice anything Russophobic in Ukrainian culture. In the 17 years of my life in Zaporozhye, I have never met a single Banderist.’.. Glazyev was gracious to take some time from his packed schedule to provide detailed answers to a first series of questions in what we expect to become a running conversation, especially focused to the Global South. This is his first interview with a foreign publication since the start of Operation Z. Many thanks to Alexey Subottin for the Russian-English translation.”
(Ukrainian) Nationalist Units Shot Ukrainian Servicemen Who Tried To Surrender In Novomikhailovka – Russian MoD – https://southfront.org/nationalist-units-shot-ukrainian-servicemen-who-tried-to-surrender-in-novomikhailovka-russian-mod/ – “On June 14, the Russian Ministry of Defense reported that the Ukrainian army continues to suffer significant losses, especially since in recent weeks cases have become more frequent when units of Ukrainian nationalists shot surrendering Ukrainian servicemen in the back… The report of the Russian Ministry of Defence reads: ‘So, after conducting firepower preparation to the offensive of Russian troops in the area of the settlement of Novomikhailovka of the Donetsk People’s Republic, more than 30 servicemen of the 25th battalion of the 54th Mechanized Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine decided to lay down their arms and surrender… The Ukrainian servicemen who occupied a strong point in the area of the Animal Farm radioed to the command of the Russian unit, asking to cease fire and provide a corridor for exit… At about 22 o’clock, the AFU servicemen with white flags began advancing towards the Russian positions… At that moment, a unit of the Ukrainian nationalists, which arrived at the stronghold on armored vehicles, opened crossfire in the back on the servicemen of the 54th Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine… As a result of this shooting, 32 Ukrainian servicemen were fatally wounded and killed.”
War in the Middle East, Iran Versus The Emirates? The Insidious Role of Israel. ‘Russia and Ukraine Gulf Edition’ Coming Soon? – by Gavin OReilly – https://www.globalresearch.ca/iran-v-uae-russia-ukraine-gulf-edition-coming-soon/5783179 – “Although receiving miniscule media coverage, Thursday’s announcement that Israel had deployed military infrastructure to the UAE and Bahrain in the shape of radar systems, ostensibly to counter an alleged missile threat from nearby Iran, should be a cause for concern amongst onlookers… Coming in the same 24 hour period in which Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett paid a surprise visit to the Emirates, and in which Israeli Forces bombed Damascus International Airport, the announcement that both Abu Dhabi and Manama had agreed to host Israeli military infrastructure should be seen as the first step towards current tensions between Tel Aviv and Tehran being placed on a possibly irreversible path towards conflict in the region… Indeed, Israeli encirclement of Iran via Tel Aviv-allied Arab states possibly triggering a war between Tehran and both the UAE and Bahrain bears a stark similarity to the nine-year long build-up of provocations which would ultimately led Russia to launch a military intervention into neighbouring Ukraine in February of this year… In November 2013, following the decision by then-Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych to suspend a trade deal with the EU in order to pursue closer ties with Russia, a CIA-orchestrated regime change operation, known as ‘Euromaidan’, would be launched in order to depose Yanukovych’s leadership and replace him with the pro-Western Petro Poroshenko – whose coalition government would contain rabid far-right sympathisers hostile to Moscow… his is where the similarities with Iran and the neighbouring Gulf states of the UAE and Bahrain come into play, with both countries having formalised diplomatic links with Tel Aviv via the September 2020 US-brokered Abraham Accords… Lauded as a ‘peace deal’ by the then-administration of Donald Trump, despite Israel, the UAE and Bahrain never actually being at war, the ‘normalisation’ agreements, coming eight months after the US had nearly triggered a new Gulf war with the assassination of Iranian Quds Force commander Qasem Soleimani in a drone strike, were seen by many geopolitical observers as a means to contain Iran within the region, a long-time foreign policy aim shared by both Washington and Tel Aviv.”
The Naked Jan. 6 Political Calculation – Democrats spend money to put riot participants on the ballot in November – https://freebeacon.com/democrats/the-naked-jan-6-political-calculation/ – “As the Jan. 6 hearings roll on, we are awash in professions of Democrats’ deep concern for the health of our democracy. Committee chairman Bennie Thompson (D., Miss.) kicked things off on Thursday talking about the “domestic enemies of the Constitution” who “put two and a half centuries of constitutional democracy at risk.”.. So it’s puzzling that Democrats are shelling out millions of dollars to help some of those very people secure a spot on the ballot in the upcoming midterm elections. You got that right: The same folks droning on about the existential danger of former President Donald Trump are boosting some of his most fervent supporters—in a couple of cases, men who literally marched on the Capitol on Jan. 6—because they think it’ll help Democrats in November… In Pennsylvania, the Democratic gubernatorial nominee, Josh Shapiro, spent more money on a single ad boosting one of the Republican candidates, Doug Mastriano, than Mastriano’s entire television budget. Mastriano, of course, spent thousands of dollars in campaign funds to bus supporters to the “Stop the Steal” rally. He is now the GOP gubernatorial nominee, and while the Republican Governors Association hasn’t endorsed him, the Democrats are all in… Out in Colorado, Democrats are boosting nutjobs in the Republican Senate and gubernatorial primaries. A Democratic super PAC spent $800,000 in a single week to buoy state representative and Senate candidate Ron Hanks, another diehard Donald Trump fan who showed up for the former president’s last stand at the Ellipse.”
US Naval Air Forces Orders “Safety Pause” For Aircraft After Multiple Deadly Southern California Crashes – From ZeroHedge, Comments by Brian Shilhavy – https://healthimpactnews.com/2022/us-naval-air-forces-orders-safety-pause-for-aircraft-after-multiple-deadly-southern-california-crashes/ – “The U.S. Navy announced this weekend that there would be a “safety pause” for certain aircraft following 3 recent crashes in Southern California where 6 service members died… The Navy’s aviation community will undergo a “safety pause” Monday in the wake of multiple fatal flight mishaps in less than two weeks… During the pause, units will review risk-management practices and train “on threat and error-management processes,” according to a Naval Air Forces statement. – ‘In order to maintain the readiness of our force, we must ensure the safety of our people remains one of our top priorities,’ the command statement said. – Deployed units will conduct the pause at the earliest possible time. – The pause comes amid at least three Navy and Marine Corps aircraft crashes in the past 10 days, two of which were fatal. (Source.).. I have read several reports from multiple sources regarding this “safety pause,” and not one of them mentioned the vaccination status of the pilots, and there is no indication that the investigations will consider if any adverse reactions from the COVID-19 vaccines could have been involved… The Navy currently has 97% of its service members vaccinated with COVID-19 vaccines.
