Biden Taps Anti-Israel Activist, CNN Spouse as White House Press Sec

The White House announced on Thursday that Karine Jean-Pierre, a veteran anti-Israel activist who is married to CNN correspondent Suzanne Malveaux, will replace outgoing press secretary Jen Psaki, raising potential ethical quandaries.

The announcement drew celebratory headlines in the mainstream press: Jean-Pierre is the first black woman and openly gay person to serve in the role.

But her relationship with the CNN reporter raises ethical questions about her new role. The White House did not respond to a request for comment about whether Jean-Pierre would recuse herself in dealing with CNN. Malveaux’s colleagues include Valerie Jarrett’s daughter, CNN justice correspondent Laura Jarrett, and Israel ambassador Tom Nides’s wife, Virginia Moseley, who serves as CNN’s senior vice president of news gathering.

“Suzanne Malveaux will continue in her role as CNN national correspondent covering national/international news and cultural events but will not cover politics, Capitol Hill, or the White House while Karine Jean-Pierre is serving as White House press secretary,” a CNN spokesperson told the Washington Free Beacon.

Jean-Pierre’s anti-Israel past—which includes a stint as senior adviser and national spokeswoman for MoveOn.org, a far-left anti-Israel group that advocates for boycotts of the Jewish state—is raising red flags in the pro-Israel community. The selection of an Israel critic is also likely to further strain ties with the pro-Israel community and Israeli government, which already is strongly opposed to the Biden administration’s efforts to ink a new nuclear deal with Iran.

Biden Handing Over US Sovereignty to the UN World Health Organization (WHO)

The Director-General will be able to declare these health crises based merely on his personal opinion or consideration that there is a potential or possible threat to other nations. If passed, the amendments, proposed by the Biden administration, will drastically compromise the independence and the sovereignty of the United States. The same threat looms over all the UN’s 193 member nations, all of whom belong to WHO and represent 99.44% of the world population. The proposals will pass unless American citizens, as well as citizens worldwide, mount a very strong opposition.
Please take seriously the severity of this existential threat to everything free people hold dear. Do everything in your power to pass this report on to others and to find ways to communicate with and to influence people to stop empowering WHO to take over our national sovereignty and freedom.

On May 22-28, 2022, ultimate control over America’s healthcare system, and hence its national sovereignty, will be delivered for a vote to the World Health Organization’s governing legislative body, the World Health Assembly (WHA).

This threat is contained in new amendments to WHO’s International Health Regulations, proposed by the Biden administration, that are scheduled as “Provisional agenda item 16.2” at the upcoming conference on May 22-28, 2022.1

Destroying Food to Fight Climate Change Is Madness–and a Conceit That Could Prove Fatal

On Earth Day, a 50-year-old environmentalist and photographer from Colorado named Wynn Alan Bruce lit himself on fire outside the US Supreme Court.

Friends of Bruce, who subsequently died, said he was worried about climate change.

“This guy was my friend,” said Kritee Kanko, a senior scientist at the Environmental Defense Fund. “This was not an act of suicide. This is a deeply fearless act of compassion to bring attention to [the] climate crisis.”

Bruce’s act of immolation is one example of increasing fear of climate change, a fear that is damaging humans in various ways, including a surge in so-called “climate anxiety.”

This fear is also manifesting itself in other ways, including the realm of public policy.

Many countries around the world are aggressively pursuing net-zero carbon emission plans designed to mitigate the effects of global warming.

‘Losing’ a Million Sheep and Cattle

While people tend to think reducing emissions involves shutting down coal plants, driving more electric vehicles, and relying more on solar and wind power—each of which comes with environmental and economic costs—these are not the only policies on the table.

Increasingly governments are targeting a different emission source: food (livestock specifically). The reasons for this are not hard to find.

Globalists have been planning to starve the world with food scarcity since at least 2015 | DC Clothesline

(Natural News) The globalists have been planning a global famine that would collapse American society as early as 2015.

This is according to Edward Szall, an investigative reporter who spoke to Stew Peters on “The Stew Peters Show” about a crisis simulation conducted in November 2015. This simulation was called the “Food Chain Reaction: A Global Food Security Game” and was conducted over the course of two days in Washington, D.C.

Present in the simulation was an international group of policymakers, academics and business leaders. The group includes representatives from the countries that produce the largest amount of food, including Brazil, China and Ukraine. (Related: Merritt Medical Hour: Starvation and famine will be weaponized to control people – Brighteon.TV.)

Also present were representatives from the World Wildlife Foundation, the Center for American Progress and the Center for Naval Analyses, a federally funded research and development center for the Navy and the Marine Corps.

The simulation takes place between 2020 and 2030. According to the projections made during the simulation, the decade brought about two major food crises which saw prices surging by nearly 400 percent.

The crisis simulation also predicted extreme weather events supposedly caused by climate change, several famines and refugee crises in Bangladesh, Chad, Myanmar and Sudan, and the toppling of the governments of Pakistan and Ukraine.

Some of these predictions ended up becoming a reality, especially regarding Ukraine and Pakistan. The ongoing war in Ukraine is already well known. But in Pakistan, former Prime Minister Imran Khan was recently overthrown and a new, more Western-friendly government has taken over.

Khan alleged that his ouster from power was organized by “foreign elements,” who used many members of Pakistan’s parliament to further their own goals.

Globalists preparing to institute global carbon taxes on food

The simulation also predicted that the world would experience “a steep price spike with looming global food shortages” in 2022. In response to these food shortages, the European Union in the simulation introduced a carbon tax on meat products which would only be reversed in 2025 when harvests return to normal.

“We’ve learned that a carbon tax is a possibility in years ahead,” said Joe Stone, at the time the corporate vice president of Cargill and the company’s representative in the simulation.

Szall remarked that it was very weird that the only response the crisis simulation had to famine was a global carbon tax.

“The global response should be [to] plant more food, get back to the hyper localization of farming, prepare,” said Szall. “Their response was ‘We’re going to make your burger, your Big Mac, cost $20. And guess what … if you have any problem with it, you’re a terrorist, you’re a problem to the government, you’re someone who should be monitored.’”

During the crisis simulation, Szall said, several participants raised the point that people will have problems with being forced to pay more for food because of carbon taxes. The simulation’s solution to this, according to Szall, was for governments to “build out some kind of network to watch them.”

Szall pointed out that Cargill, one of the simulation’s main participants, is connected to Bill Gates through their initiatives to replace natural meat with lab-grown meat. Furthermore, the investigative reporter said the keynote speaker of the crisis simulation is John Podesta, the former manager of Hillary Clinton’s failed 2016 presidential campaign.

“I can’t say that I’m surprised at all,” said Peters. “John Podesta, directly tied to Hillary Clinton, all of them in bed with Bill Gates. All of them, key components in this Luciferian global cabal, all a part of the Deep State.”

Wall Street’s Most Accurate Analyst: “Today’s Bear Market Ends In October With The S&P At 3,000” | ZeroHedge News

Two weeks ago, just when everyone thought that he couldn’t turn any more bearish, BofA’s chief investment strategist Michael Hartnett, Wall Street’s biggest bear who is by implication has also emerged as the most accurate sellside analyst (the average S&P price target of his peers is still around 4,700), stunned everyone when he told readers that while the mood on the street was already dismal, relaying the the Heard on the Street line was “I’m so bearish, and even I’m miserable“, he warned that even though everyone was bearish, redemptions were just starting, and the real selling was only just beginning.

One week later – and much to the embarrassment of JPM’s in house permabull who at the same time said to take the other side of the trade and to buy stocks – Hartnett was again been proven right, with the S&P tumbling and the Nasdaq suffering its worst month since the Lehman bankruptcy. Hartnett also correctly warned that the closer we got to the 4,000 “strange attractor” level, the more aggressive the selling would become (as we discussed in “Hartnett Turns Apocalyptic, Says Carnage To Accelerate With “Max Pain” And “Exit” Waiting Below 4,000“)

Since then it’s gotten even worse, providing the biggest bear on Wall Street with even more ammo for his latest weekly Flow Show note (available to pro subscribers in the usual place), and he wastes no time to terrify his readers of the hell that is coming, warning that with the NYSE Composite (US stocks + ADR’s + bond ETFs) down -9% YTD to 100-week moving average, “recession/crises in past 25 years have always seen our fave Wall St barometer break decisively below this level (15350 today)…at 100wma;” And in case that’s not enough, he also warns that “every crisis/recession sees meaningful dip below 100wma…game time!”

Extending this analogy to all bear markets – because the only ones who still don’t realize that the S&P is in a brutal bear market are JPMorgan’s strategists – Hartnett compiles the following useful information:

  • 9 bear markets in the past 140 years
  • Average price decline = 37.3%
  • Average duration is 289 days

And while past performance no guide to future performance, if it were, today’s bear market ends Oct 19th ’22 with S&P500 at 3000, Nasdaq at 10000.  There are two silver linings here:

  • first: many stocks are already there, i.e., 49% of Nasdaq >50% below their 52-week highs, 58% of Nasdaq >37.3% down, and 77% of index in bear market, i.e. down >20%;
  • second: bear markets are quicker than bull markets.

Hartnett next echoes what we said yesterday in our discussion of the BOE’s shocking decision, which we said confirms the worst stagflationary case for the economy. According to the BofA strategist, the BoE projected UK CPI >10% by Oct’22, cut ’23 GDP forecast 150bps to -0.25%; in other words, 10% inflation, 0% growth the living definition of stagflation. 

It’s why to Hartnett, the correct relative playbook is 1973/74 and it shows that cash and commodities beat bonds & stocks (esp consumer & tech; note Big Tech starting to ape Nifty 50 crash).

Meanwhile, flows – which are always a leading indicator for sentiment – confirm that none of this is a shock to investors, and after some huge outflows in the past month, the latest weekly flows into the FOMC were massively “risk-off” as investors waved in the cash: $0.3bn from gold, $3.4bn from stocks, $9.1bn from bonds, $14.0bn from cash. Some more details:

  • big inflow to Treasuries ($6.0bn),
  • big outflow from TIPS ($3.2bn),
  • big outflow IG bonds ($7.3bn),
  • largest REIT (real estate) outflow ever ($2.2bn),
  • big outflow financials ($1.6bn),
  • 4-week average of flows to stocks turning most negative since May’20 when the Fed had to step in to bail out the market.

Turning from the past – both distant and recent – to the future, and Hartnett’s 2022 View, it will come as no surprise that the BofA strategist is not exactly bullish. Here’s how he see things playing out

  • Base case remains equity lows, yield highs yet to be reached
  • Wall St to spend much of ’22 working through “inflation shock”, “rates shock”, “recession shock” = negative, volatile returns in absolute terms
  • Relative calls defensive…cash/volatility/commodities>stocks/bonds, IG>HY, defensives>cyclicals
  • Meantime as recession risks next move up in commodities should be tactically sold,
  • Lead indicators of bear market were trough in yields & US$ + peak in EM, crypto, speculative tech (e.g. biotech) in Q1’21; only once yields & US$ peak, and floor in EM, crypto, speculative tech follow, should risk be added, first and foremost in corporate bonds – we are not there yet (and note speculative tech will remain in bear market for next 2 years, a floor does not = new bull market)

Finally, Harnett turns to his favorite topic – the three types of shocks that define the transition from 2020 to 2022. According to the BofA strategist, in past 9 months “inflation shock” was priced-in slowly, “rates shock” was priced-in slowly, but “recession shock” was priced-in too quickly; this is a problem as stronger-than-expected economic data in H1’22 is causing market to price-in longer/bigger inflation/rates shock.

Inflation shock: inflation set to “peak” but lower inflation likely to be “transitory” given biggest macro story of ‘22…a lack of supply of energy, food, housing, labor relative to demand showing scant signs of improvement…

Energy…natural gas prices at highest since ’08 as world scrambles to reconfigure energy supplies (note explosive upside of Russian ruble now at new highs vs sterling, euro, US dollar),

Food…fertilizer prices @ all-time highs = cost of food production up = supply of food down = price of food up, note corn prices @ new highs & food prices seriously vulnerable to super-spike on poor harvests,

Houses…mortgage rate surging but 93% of US mortgages are fixed and supply of existing homes near record low, as evidenced by housing permits highest since ’74

Labor…there are 12mn US job openings versus a 6mn supply of unemployed workers , you do the math.

Rates shock: yes central banks on course to hike rates 251 times in 2022, yes net 34% tightening monetary policy most since ’08, yes QT starts H2’22, yes not a lot rate hikes can do about broken supply chains; but yields & volatility will rise until Fed & central banks ahead of the curve…this week they moved further behind curve; US inflation 8%, EU inflation 8%, UK inflation heading >10%, yet they are quivering at the thought of selling $1 of bonds (QT) after buying $23,000,000,000,000 since Lehman, and $11,000,000,000,000 since COVID-19; little wonder bond vigilantes back to trading “end of central bank credibility” = volatility entrenched.

Recession shock: the economy today is strong, a problem; but macro data has turned from unambiguously strong to ambiguously strong; business confidence has stalled (see PMI’s) which threatens to stall improvement in labor market in H2; Asian FX devaluation discounts weaker Asian export growth…

… which discounts weaker US consumer; and quickest route to recession on Main St is via a sharp decline in asset valuations on Wall St, & risk of systemic events on bond/stock/real estate deleveraging in risk parity (RPAR)…

…  private equity, sovereign wealth funds, credit events in speculative tech, shadow banking, US consumer buy now, pay later models, Emerging Markets, zombie corporations, goes up with every rate hike.

The Triumph of Natural Immunity

A new CDC study shows that around 75% of American children – and nearly 60% of adults – have already had covid. That means that they have strong natural immunity that protects them from covid infections as they get older. Despite this, the CDC, the FDA and other government agencies are pushing all of them to get vaccinated. Why? One important role of public health agencies during a pandemic is to conduct seroprevalence studies to determine how many people have developed antibodies to the disease from having been infected. That way we understand how the disease has spread and how it varies geographically and among different age groups. Spain did such a large, randomized survey early during the pandemic while Sweden did a series of smaller randomized surveys at regular intervals. …

Christian Homeschooling Becoming Popular in Russia…Finally

Article Image
 • https://russia-insider.com, Russian Faith

Since Russia has so swiftly become the world’s official bulwark of conservative values, it is quite surprising that it has systematically lagged behind in one obvious realm: Homeschooling.

For most Russians, homeschooling has always been enveloped in a fantastical aura, something associated mainly with special needs and/or with Amish-like Protestant groups in America.

But lately, as more Russian Christian families gain a voice, energized by growing state supports and society’s intensifying religiosity, the demand for alternatives to the official public school system, corrupted by materialism and Darwinism during the Soviet Regime and, now, by liberal values, has grown more popular and apparent.

More and more Russian parents are frightened and reluctant to hand over their child’s education into the hands of strangers, realizing, that in doing so, they are also relinquishing the moral upbringing of their own child, and allowing them to become inculcated with morals and values that may be completely foreign.

This is where Alexey Komov and Irina Shamolina, the pioneers of homeschooling in Russia, come in. The Russian couple, passionate about education, homeschools their three sons. Irina leads a popular blog about education and Alexey is the representative the World Congress of Families in Russia. Both have been fascinated by, and intensely studying, homeschooling since 2012.  With time, they came to the conviction that homeschooling options were urgently needed in Russia.

They traveled regularly to the US, which has the most developed homeschooling systems in the world, trying to learn about and experience the lively Christian homeschooling scene of the country.

They finally settled upon the Classical Conversations, a Christian homeschooling organization, started in the 1990s by Leigh Bortins in North Carolina. The model creates communities of homeschooling Christian families that meet weekly and aims to teach children in a classical manner. It is based on educational theories gleaned from Ancient Greece and the Trivium concept of the Middle Ages.

SURPRISE! Leadership At Joe Biden’s ‘Disinformation Governance Board’ Has Ties To George Soros — The Gateway Pundit

The progressive billionaire George Soros has his hands in pretty much everything the left does.

Knowing this, it should come as no surprise that he is tied to the leadership at Biden’s new Orwellian ‘Disinformation Governance Board’ which has come under fire since it was announced last week.

The government has no business deciding what is and is not truth, much less for purely partisan reasons.

Townhall reports:

Biden’s Disinformation Board Co-Leader Has Been In Bed With Soros

Members of Joe Biden’s disinformation governance board all have one thing in common: they are backed by radical leftists.

Disinformation board leader, Jennifer Daskal, has at least three close ties to liberal billionaire, George Soros, as NewsBusters highlighted.

With both of their agendas involving censorship, it’s no surprise the two have previously worked together.

Daskal worked as a senior counter-terrorism counsel for the anti-Semitic Human Rights Watch group, which received over $32,000,000 from Soros between 2000 and 2014. Soro’s also gave over $600,000 to the Just Security blog where she worked as a founding editor.

To put it in to prospective, Just Security claimed the Biden administration is the answer to peace and freedom. Daskal, though, will be a part of the very group responsible for stripping people of their Freedom of Speech.

The disinformation board has been dubbed the “Ministry of Truth.” Daskal’s past positions, however, suggest she will play a key role in keeping up with Democrat’s agenda of keeping Americans blind sighted by what it really happening.

This board should be shut down immediately.

At least Republicans are uniting against this.

CIA director weighs possibility of Russian nuke in Ukraine | RT – Daily news

Despite alarm in Kiev, William Burns said there is no “practical evidence” that Russia will deploy tactical nuclear weapons

CIA director weighs possibility of Russian nuke in Ukraine

CIA Director William Burns told a Financial Times conference on Saturday that the US’ intelligence agencies haven’t seen any “practical evidence” that Russian President Vladimir Putin will use tactical nuclear weapons in Ukraine. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has previously claimed that Putin could use such weapons.

“We don’t see, as an intelligence community, practical evidence at this point of Russian planning for the deployment or even potential use of tactical nuclear weapons,” Burns said at the conference in Washington DC, repeating a similar assessment he made at the beginning of April.

However, Burns added that in his opinion, Putin “doesn’t believe he can afford to lose,” and the US should therefore “stay very sharply focused” on the potential nuclear threat regardless.

The Kremlin has insisted that Russia will not deploy nuclear weapons against its neighbor, with Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexei Zaitsev stating on Friday that “Russia firmly abides by the principle that there can be no victors in a nuclear war, and it must not be unleashed.”

Nevertheless, Zelensky said last month that he was “convinced” Russia could use chemical or nuclear weapons to win victory in Ukraine, calling for the world to “be ready” for the possibility. Western media outlets have also speculated about the possibility of such a nuclear strike, citing Russia’s placing of its nuclear deterrence forces on high alert at the outset of the Ukraine conflict, and Putin’s warning that outside powers interfering with Russia’s war aims would face consequences “never seen in [their] entire history.”

Speaking to Newsweek on Thursday, Russia’s ambassador in Washington, Anatoly Antonov, said that it was Moscow “that in recent years has persistently proposed to American colleagues to affirm that there can be no winners in a nuclear war, thus it should never happen.”

Unlike the kind of warheads mounted on Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles, tactical nuclear weapons are smaller, low-yield devices that can be dropped from planes, fitted to short-range missiles or fired from artillery pieces. Although no internationally-recognized definition exists, their yield typically varies from less than one kiloton to 100 kilotons. For reference, the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima during the Second World War had a yield of 15 kilotons.

Russia, which possesses around 700 more nuclear warheads than the US, asserts that it could use nuclear weapons in the event of a first nuclear strike on its territory or infrastructure, or if the existence of the Russian state is threatened by either nuclear or conventional weapons. The United States, according to the Pentagon’s most recent Nuclear Posture Review, says that its nukes are intended to serve as a deterrent to nuclear attack on the US and its allies, but their use may also be considered in “extreme circumstances to defend the vital interests of the United States or its allies and partners.”

Franklin Graham’s warning: ‘Progressive Christianity can send a person to hell’ | WND

Franklin Graham, whose Samaritan’s Purse Christian ministry responds to needs of people, and especially children, worldwide, also is head of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

And in a cover article for that group’s magazine, “Decision,” but bluntly condemns “progressive Christianity” as something that “can send a person to hell.”

The belief structure, adopted by many leftist churches around the globe, neglects the “fundamental issue of God’s justice – how a holy and just God deals with sinful and wicked men.”

Further, those congregations progressives, regarding personal sin, fail to “see the ruinous consequences of mankind’s depraved, sinful state. Biblical teaching on the precious blood of Christ, the sacrificial, substitutionary, atoning work of Christ’s death on the cross, is too often neglected or distorted.”

The result?

“So the real, ultimate danger is that progressive Christianity can send a person to hell.”

He cites the Bible’s affirmation that Paul wrote to the Galatians about “their attempt to return to the demands of the law rather than continuing to live by grace through faith.”

“Such an attempt wasn’t just a really bad idea; it actually would result in living under God’s curse, not His favor,” he explained.

“I would say the exact same warning applies today to the advocates of progressive Christianity. They deceitfully promote and proclaim what I believe is clearly a ‘different gospel,’ which is really no Gospel at all.'”

The problem, he explained, is that progressive Christianity “denies the divinely inspired, authoritative truth of the Bible as it intersects every facet of living. For example, although Scripture clearly says that marriage is between one man and one woman, proponents of progressive Christianity twist and distort the truth of God’s Word on sexuality, focusing on such nonsensical trends as gender identity.”

He continued, “They deny God’s distinction of the sexes, and instead invent their own misguided standards, unguided by the Word of God. The degrading cultural influences that embrace such movements as gay marriage have more sway on their beliefs than the Bible does.”

His conclusion is both “harsh” and “true,” he said.

“To reject the deity of Christ is to deny Christ and doom yourself to an eternity spent in hell.”

Or the hope that good works earn salvation will fail, he said.

Christ’s death, burial and resurrection is “the only saving Gospel,” he said.

“Preachers must faithfully proclaim it from the pulpit if they want their congregants to be convicted of their sin and to trust solely in the blood of Christ for the forgiveness of their wins.

“Praise and worship have their place in the church, but there is no substitute for pastors preaching the power of the cross and the resurrection,” he said.

US ‘directly’ involved in Ukraine conflict – Moscow | RT – Daily news

Washington should be on a “list of war criminals” for sharing military data with Kiev, the head of Russia’s Duma has said

US ‘directly’ involved in Ukraine conflict – Moscow

Washington should be added to a “list of war criminals” as it is now directly participating in “hostilities” in Ukraine, Chairman of Russia’s State Duma Vyacheslav Volodin claimed on Saturday, citing media reports about alleged US intelligence-sharing with Ukraine.

US President Joe Biden has told senior intelligence officials that “counterproductive” leaks about data sharing with Ukraine should stop, NBC reported on Friday.

Though there was no official reaction to the report from the US authorities, Volodin took to Telegram to comment on it. “The United States is taking part in hostilities in Ukraine. US President Biden, demanding to stop leaks about the exchange of intelligence information with Ukraine, admitted that Washington had been exposed,” he wrote.

Volodin said that the Ukrainian government, which he described as the “Kiev Nazi regime,” not only relies on weapons from the West, but also on the “assistance of American intelligence forces.

The Duma chairman wrote that Washington “essentially coordinates and develops military operations” in Ukraine, and is therefore directly participating in the “hostilities” against Russian forces.

For the crimes committed in Ukraine by the Kiev Nazi regime, the US leadership should also be held accountable, adding to the list of war criminals,” Volodin concluded.

However, the Pentagon earlier dismissed some of the media reports and specifically denied that the US had provided data allowing Ukrainian forces to strike Russia’s Black Sea flagship ‘Moskva’ off the coast of Odessa last month.

The Ukrainians have their own intelligence capabilities to track and target Russian naval vessels, as they did in this case,” said US military spokesman John Kirby.

Russia insists that its missile cruiser wasn’t attacked, but sank on April 14 after a fire that had broken out on board caused ammunition to explode.
The White House National Security Council has admitted, however, that the US is “regularly providing detailed, timely intelligence to the Ukrainians on the battlefield to help them defend their country against Russian aggression and will continue to do so.”

This statement apparently did not come as a surprise to Moscow. On May 5, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists that the Russian authorities know the US, the UK and NATO “on a permanent basis” transmit intelligence and other data to Kiev but this would not “hinder the achievement of the goals set during the special military operation.”

Russia attacked its neighboring state following Ukraine’s failure to implement the terms of the Minsk agreements, signed in 2014, and Moscow’s eventual recognition of the Donbass republics of Donetsk and Lugansk. The German- and French-brokered Minsk Protocol was designed to give the breakaway regions special status within the Ukrainian state.

The Kremlin has since demanded that Ukraine officially declare itself a neutral country that will never join NATO. Kiev insists the Russian offensive was completely unprovoked and has denied claims it was planning to retake the two republics by force.
