International police campaign closes down thousands of fake online pharmacies
Good. Maybe they'll quit calling me now.
[WND] Police organizations around the world have succeeded in closing down thousands of fake online pharmacies — and confiscating millions of products like face masks — in a coordinated enforcement effort orchestrated by INTERPOL.

Officials in La Belle France explained the program was called Operation Pangea XIV and targeted the sale of counterfeit and illicit medicines and medical products.

Among the items withdrawn from circulation were home COVID tests, sedatives, masks, syringes, catheters and surgical devices, painkillers, steroids, antiseptics, anti-cancer medication, anti-malarials and more.

The effort was supported by the Pharmaceutical Security Institute, the United Nations
...a formerly good idea gone bad...

Zoe Kestan connected to Hunter Biden's sudden interest in ‘ART’
[Pacific Pundit] Lingerie entrepreneur Zoe Kestan, is just one of the shady characters involved in Hunter Biden’s sudden interest in selling "art."

Hunter Biden’s connections to the New York art scene reportedly go through lingerie entrepreneur Zoe Kestan, otherwise known as @weed_slut_420 on Instagram.

President Joe Biden’s 51-year-old scandal-plagued son is venturing into the art world, with Soho art dealer Georges Bergès, who reportedly has some ties to China
[Opening galleries in China. Looks like Hunter will be the Next Big Thing on CCP officials' walls, next to Mao and Xi.]
holding a private viewing for Hunter’s artwork in Los Angeles, followed by an art exhibition in New York in the fall. Hunter has reportedly been working on his art full time, and his pieces, Bergès told Artnet, will "range from $75,000 for works on paper to $500,000 for large-scale paintings."

However, Hunter’s new venture has sparked growing concerns about the potential for pay-for-play corruption in light of the fact that the buyers will remain anonymous, and the shadowy nature of the art world is a notorious avenue for money laundering. Last year, a bipartisan report by the U.S. Senate’s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations found that "secrecy, anonymity, and a lack of regulation create an environment ripe for laundering money and evading sanctions" in the art world.

Taser-wielding madman sparks mayhem in Washington Square Park
[NYPOST] Mayhem erupted in beleaguered Washington Square Park early Saturday when a taser-waving madman armed with a knife sent park dwellers running out of the park — trampling a woman in the process.The woman was left covered in blood after she was "run over" in the stampede to safety, police said. Dramatic images show the victim, 43, bleeding from her face. She was taken to Bellevue Hospital in stable, pH balanced condition with cuts, scrapes and bruises, cops said.

Police collared a 42-year-old Manhattan man following the chaos. Jason McDermott is charged with menacing, reckless endangerment and criminal possession of a weapon.

The latest havoc in the famed park comes amid increasing outrage over repeated incidents of violence. Hundreds of locals packed the basement of a Greenwich Village church this week for an emergency meeting about the problems — as police officials promised to "address" their growing concerns.

It’s unclear what sparked the allegedly unhinged McDermott, 42, to begin waving a taser near a group of revelers gathered inside the park at around 12:40 a.m. He was also carrying a large knife.

#3  surreal

Democratic leaders kneeled in the halls of Congress for about 9 minutes to honor the Blessed Martyr St. George Floyd. Pelosi, 3rd in line to the presidency, presented this POS's brother a folded American flag that was flown above the Capitol in his honor -- in an elegant triangular presentation case.

This is who our leaders chose to hold up as the highest and best of our nation.

A repulsive, violent savage who was arrested nine times; who was a convicted drug dealer; who held a gun to the belly of a pregnant woman while his five fellow thugs ransacked her home; who did three prison terms totaling eight years; who (like Hunter Biden) made a foray into pr0n flicks alongside his garbage occupations of thieving, abusing drugs and knocking up women; who continued this life of depravity and violence and drug dealing and drug abuse up to and including the day he died, while at a drug deal, in the most despicable way: resisting arrest and stuffing fentanyl up his rectum.

This we are told is the national hero whom our children should emulate.

This is the feral specimen that our elected leaders from coast to are honoring with public statuary.
With public murals and commemorations.
With bended knee and tender statements and stirring speeches.

This is the disgusting deadbeat asshole whose neglected "family" -- including the children he never bothered to support, his brothers and sister, who had already siphoned over $14 MILLION (and counting) from idiotic saps via GoFundMe within one month of deadbeat's death.

The cherry on the shit sundae was the City of Minneapolis awarding this pathetic miserable band of lowlifes ANOTHER $27 MILLION from the public treasury -- even as that city has been utterly destroyed by St. George's holy BLM killers and looters.

And now America is memorializing this wretched excuse for a human in every possible way.

At the same time that our elected leaders and a small band of extortionists and thugs goes rampaging at night -- always in the dead of night -- across our parks and public spaces, pulling down every statue of the great men who built and inspired this country.

Replacing Lincoln with Douchebag Floyd.

Replacing Columbus with Simian Floyd.

Replacing Washington and Jefferson with Arse-Stuffing Fentanyl Floyd.

What a complete disgrace. What has this country descended to? Why are we allowing this to happen?

'We are going nowhere': Organizer of out-of-control drug-fueled Washington Square Park raves that have turned landmark into a violent no-go zone for residents says it's his 'First Amendment right to be there' and he will NOT stop
[Daily Mail, where America gets its news]
  • Party promoter David Ortiz, who calls himself 'the Shaman', has insisted that the after-dark raves in Washington Square Park will continue, saying it is his First Amendment right to be there

  • Speaking to DailyMail.com, Ortiz said 'We're going to be here every single day. Just like the police are, we are too. Because this is as much our home as to the other residents that actually live here'

  • Hundreds of revelers returned to NYC's Washington Square Park again on Saturday night

  • The landmark Manhattan park has been plagued by late night raves which often descend into chaos

  • Residents and nearby business owners have demanded police step up their enforcement of a midnight curfew

  • There have been claims of prostitution, public sex acts, hard drugs, and people carrying weapons

Illinois town cancels July 4 parade over COVID-19 concerns but allows Juneteenth and Pride celebrations
[FOX] The city of Evanston, Illinois, located just north of Chicago, joined communities across the U.S. in celebrating their first in-person Juneteenth parade Saturday, but some have been left wondering why celebrations for the nation’s Independence Day have been canceled.
13 percent of the population bullying the other 87 percent.
The Evanston Fourth of July Association voted to cancel the town’s Independence Day events earlier in 2020 and opt for a virtual celebration instead -- citing concerns over the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

"Based on concern for public health due to the unpredictability of the pandemic’s impact, vaccination rates, and in cooperation with our local authorities, the Trustees...voted to cancel the Fun Run, Parade, Palatine Concert Band performance and Lakefront Fireworks show on July 4, 2021," the board wrote in a statement.

But some took to social media to voice their frustration over the decision.

"My home town of Evanston, Illinois is having a Juneteenth Parade and a Gay Pride Parade, but is canceling the 4th of July Parade & Fireworks," Tom Bevan, co-founder and president of Real Clear Politics, wrote on Twitter.

#2  This country is sick. Our leaders applaud mobs that kill, burn and loot, even as they put up monuments to violent criminal drug addict lowlifes while they tear down statues of our beloved national heroes.

They denigrate our most important events and holidays and create bullshit meme-days in their stead.

This is intolerable. Maybe one should ask, How much longer will Americans tolerate this disgusting lunacy?

#4  If the concern really is spreading Covid, then by allowing Pride and Juneteenth gatherings they’re showing they’re evil white supremacists who want those two populations dead.

If, in the other hand, that’s just a convenient excuse, they’re showing something else equally despicable.

Why Many Remote Job Postings Now Exclude One State
Unintended consequences strike again.
[Foundation for Economic Education] The pandemic has undoubtedly hastened the shift to remote work.

Many workers and companies have now embraced remote work in previously office-based positions, and this is continuing even as the economy reopens and new jobs are posted.

Many new remote positions are being posted advertising that applicants can live anywhere in the US—except Colorado.

Here’s why.

“A new Colorado law… requires companies with even a few employees in the state to disclose the expected salary or pay range for each open role they advertise, including remote positions,” the Wall Street Journal reports. “The rule’s aim is to narrow gender wage gaps and provide greater pay transparency for employees.”

The result?

“To avoid having to disclose that information, though, some employers seeking remote workers nationwide are saying that those living in Colorado need not apply,” the Journal notes.

Singer Macy Gray says US should ditch the Stars and Stripes because it is 'tattered, dated, divisive, and incorrect'
That's why the flags of two other countries emulate it.
  • [Daily Mail, Where America Gets Its News] Macy Gray, 53, wrote the op-ed for MarketWatch ahead of Juneteenth, which was declared a federal holiday this week and is set to be celebrated on Saturday

  • The 'I Try' singer said the flag needs to be redesigned to represent all Americans, arguing the symbolism of Old Glory was harmed during the Capitol riot

  • Gray argued that the stars on the flag fail to represent Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico, which have both seen failed attempts at gaining statehood

  • She went on to claim that the 'white' stripes meant to represent purity and innocence are not an accurate way to depict the country

  • The five-time Grammy nominee a design for her own version of the flag that she felt would be more representative of the country, while keeping many elements

  • Many people on social media were not thrilled with the take down of Old Glory

#4  Fight back and bring this idiocy to a conclusion.

That will mean sacrifice and a willingness to be vicious. Coordination with capable people, recruiting, supply, funding. And a prolonged guerilla warfare in urban zones. Not that it can't be done, it can I'm sure. Anything groups of weed addled, ritalin raised misfits can do, well adjusted healthy people can accomplish in months. But it would entail going up against the laws, that beloved constitution, everything even the Republicans hold dear. A strong enough statement of disobedience and rebellion, and the pols will have to relent in their campaign to alter America piecemeal. A momentum of violence will have to be maintained too, with liquidations of people like that Cullors woman, maybe some antifa heroes offed on the street, voices like this one testing people's tolerance silenced abruptly.

This sort of thing has already been anticipated by the deepState strategists; hence the move to weed out nationalists and unwoke people not on the same page, from the military and law enforcement. The campaign on thought policing and anti-government ideas. The hullabaloo about 'domestic terrorists', because they know such a reaction is imminent. Theirs were logical steps toward preemptive disempowerment of the people. Concurrent to it they have their assault on the 2A in various forms and stages of success. Because intelligent, war experienced vets, LEOs leading disgruntled citizens against their ANTIFA and black supremacist goons is what they fear. If that happens, raw power will transfer back into people's hands, making the administrations finally answerable, the socialist elite an endangered species and the dysfunctional democracy a Republic.

An American Spring.

The campaign on thought policing and anti-government ideas. The hullabaloo about 'domestic terrorists', because they know such a reaction is imminent.

Destroy the election process, upend the economy, WOKEtard the military, bankrupt the nation, make us a global laughing stock, what could possibly be next on their agenda ?

#7  ^ A purge? Long term deterrence and enslavement? Let the hordes of criminals and sociopaths cultivated by mayors and DAs loose on defenseless people. Not an all out assault. Violations of opportunity. Death to their pride and morale by a thousand cuts. Make it so any degree of atrocity is easily forgotten and people learn to live with it.

The power of such a setup has been seen in third world nations for years now. It has become the status quo that their pols and bureaucracies fight to protect, hailed as democracy and other lofty things. Make the people totally dependent on the State, at the mercy of the police. Their highest aspiration becomes mere survival and maybe doing business to pay off State extortion.

It's like the American Left studied the polities of these nations and decided that the severely emasculated majorities and forever desperate middle classes make for easy golden geese; and decided this is what they want for America. It'll take a generation to get there, but unchallenged they will.

When the left's militias finally get the balls to attack a suburban neighborhood where people actually live, not only will Antifa and BLM be utterly destroyed, the suburbanites will roll right on through city hall and the federal building taking into custody every politician and deep state turd and antifa punk until peace reigns supreme again. etc. etc. etc.

Subject: FCA Colors Casing and Inactivation Ceremony (7 July 2021)

Greetings SOD/FCA alumni. As always, you can count on me to send the mass emails out with bad/sad news. As the title of the email reflects, I believe this to be truly one of the emails I never thought I’d be sending out.

After 47 years, the United States Foreign Counterintelligence Activity will case its colors and officially be inactivated as an Army organization on Wednesday, 7 July 2021.

This will be the first of three unit inactivations over the next 12 months, coinciding with the scheduled unit changes of commands, concluding with the 902d casing its colors in the summer of 2022. As part of the G-2 directed CI Reformation, the 902d will transform into new Army CI Command, led by a yet unnamed 1-star General Officer. While the Army will keep the capability and mission that FCA had these past decades, it will look a bit different with mission execution being pushed out to additional locations in CONUS, and keeping the x2 overseas locations.

Biden Freezes Military Aid to Ukraine post summit
[Yahoo] As Putin massed attack helicopters and aircraft on the eastern Ukrainian border, Biden and NATO leaders condemned Russia and called for a drawdown but made no public offers of military assistance. Meanwhile, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky urgently called for entry into NATO and the military weaponry his country lacks.

"Russia is not the entity that takes words seriously," Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba told the Washington Examiner at a June 3 meeting in Kyiv.
There is, at this time, uncertainty regarding the status of military assistance to the Ukraine. Some lower level Biden Admin officials deny 'the freeze', others say, 'it's a pause' others say 're evaluation'.

The UN decries persecution and torture in Crimea
Direct translation of the article

The interim report of the UN Secretary General on the situation with human rights in Crimea will be presented at the session of the UN Human Rights Council, starting on Monday. This was stated by the first deputy foreign minister of Ukraine Emine Djeppar on Facebook on Saturday, June 19.

"The report records the continuing practices of illegal persecution of Crimeans, the use of torture for self-incrimination, the transfer of illegally convicted persons to the territory of Russia, the impunity of the bodies of the Russian occupation authorities, including the FSB," Geppar said.

In addition, the retrospective application of Russian legislation is noted, in particular for the attack on freedom of the media and deprivation of housing for Crimeans, which is actually one of the forms of forced change in the demographic composition of the population.

Finally, the lawlessness of the "authorities" of the annexed peninsula also includes an attack on religious freedom, in particular, it is about the persecution of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine.

"These are the practices in violation of international law that Russia brought with it as an occupation power in the Ukrainian lands of Crimea and Donbass," Jappar summed up.

Recall that earlier in Crimea, a sentence was passed in absentia to Refat Chubarov . The head of the Mejlis was accused of riots near the building of the Supreme Council of Crimea in February 2014, during which two people were killed.

It was also reported that Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba called on the OSCE to pay more attention to Crimea . The OSCE Special Monitoring Mission should increase the number of its efforts in the Crimean direction.

Singapore Wary of Chinese Covid Vaccine
[Yahoo] SINGAPORE; There is a significant risk of "vaccine breakthrough" with the Sinovac vaccine, or CoronaVac, with international evidence showing that many who had taken it were later infected with COVID-19, said the Ministry of Health's (MOH) director of medical services Kenneth Mak on Friday (18 June).
vaccine breakthrough means you are infected despite vaccination

many countries are using the Sinovac; an example is Chile, which has become something of a economic colony of China. It has reached 60% vaccinated with Sinovac, but new infections are running about 10k/day and deaths about 100/day in a population of under 20M

North Korea's Kim tightens ruling party discipline, appoints new politburo members
[AlAhram] North Korea
...hereditary Communist monarchy distinguished by its truculence and periodic acts of violence. Distinguishing features include Songun (Army First) policy, which involves feeding the army before anyone but the Dear Leadership, and Juche, which is Kim Jong Il's personal interpretation of Marxism-Leninism, which he told everybody was brilliant. In 1950 the industrialized North invaded agrarian South Korea. Twenty-one countries of the United Nations eventually contributed to the UN force opposing the invasion, with the United States providing around 90% of the military personnel. Seventy years later the economic results are in and it doesn't look good for Juche...

...the overweight, pouty-looking hereditary potentate of North Korea. Pudge appears to believe in his own divinity, but has yet to produce any loaves and fishes, so his subjects remain malnourished...
has reinforced the ruling Workers' Party discipline and appointed new members of its powerful politburo, state media KCNA reported on Saturday.

The party's central committee held a plenary meeting for a fourth and last day where it reviewed organizational and ideological issues for its central leadership organ.

Some members of the leadership expressed "remorse for failing to live up to the expectations," after Kim pointed out "serious problems" with their lifestyle, KCNA said, without elaborating.

The central committee's powerful politburo also elected Thae Hyong Chol, vice president of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly, as a new member, and U Sang Chol, an official at the party's Central Auditing Commission, as an alternate member, KCNA said.

The party gathering kicked off on Tuesday.

During earlier sessions, Kim called for measures to tackle the "tense" food situation, blaming the coronavirus (aka COVID19 or Chinese Plague)
...the twenty first century equivalent of bubonic plague, only instead of killing off a third of the population of Europe it kills 3.4 percent of those who notice they have it. It seems to be fond of the elderly, especially Iranian politicians and holy men...

Texas residents say the temperatures on their smart thermostats were RAISED overnight without their permission after state's power operators warned of shortages amid a heat wave

Old School is still the Best School.
Purchase a Manual thermostat $34.
Install it to BYPASS the Power companies remotely programmable unit to actually RUN the HVAC. But leave the power companies in place, but not in actual control of the HVAC.

While you are at it give this some deeper greater thought. SMART METERS

It means your Power companies communicate and control power flow and direction over the power lines themselves.

Note: Some of you might remember in the late 1990's early 2000's the power companies were even selling communication services and devices that used their power grid instead of Broadcast towers.

Which means your home or Business electrical power supply could also be a Communication Circuit. What does that open you up too?

#2  I have zero pity for them. From the source article:
in exchange for entering the contest, customers had to opt-into in to a program that allows power companies to remotely adjust web-connected 'smart' thermostats when energy demands are high, KHOU reported.

If above is true, the affected Texans GAVE their permission to have Smart thermostats do their thing.
Similar defects in judgment were noted last winter when so many Texans thought they were immune to the phenomenon of water freezing and pipes bursting in buildings that were unheated in freezing weather. Gods of the Copybook Headings covered this rather well, IMNSHO.

Science & Technology
Grim new study: COVID is causing patients to lose brain tissue, and not just very sick patients either
h/t HotAir
...UK Biobank scanned over 40,000 participants before the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, making it possible to invite back in 2021 hundreds of previously-imaged participants for a second imaging visit. Here, we studied the effects of the disease in the brain using multimodal data from 782 participants from the UK Biobank COVID-19 re-imaging study, with 394 participants having tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 infection between their two scans. We used structural and functional brain scans from before and after infection, to compare longitudinal brain changes between these 394 COVID-19 patients and 388 controls who were matched for age, sex, ethnicity and interval between scans. We identified significant effects of COVID-19 in the brain with a loss of grey matter in the left parahippocampal gyrus, the left lateral orbitofrontal cortex and the left insula. When looking over the entire cortical surface, these results extended to the anterior cingulate cortex, supramarginal gyrus and temporal pole.

...Unlike in post hoc disease studies, the availability of pre-infection imaging data helps avoid the danger of pre-existing risk factors or clinical conditions being mis-interpreted as disease effects.
