🗞💬 *WORLD NEWS AND COMMENTARY* 💬🗞
🚀 Narrative Alert! The Hill ran a surprisingly quasi-critical Ukraine story yesterday headlined “Ukraine Shouldn’t Treat Allies Like Amazon: UK Defense Chief.”
On Tuesday, British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace told reporters at the Vilnius NATO Summit that has heard “grumbles” from lawmakers in Washington, D.C., that, “we’re not Amazon.” He said he felt the same way. “I mean, that’s true,” Wallace said. “I told them that last June. I said to the Ukrainians, when I drove 11 hours to be given a list: ‘I’m not Amazon.’”
Secretary Wallace told the reporters that Ukraine has been pressuring countries to give up their own defensive weapons for Ukraine to use to defend itself. “Whether we like it or not, people want to see gratitude,” Wallace explained.
Do they? Since when? Whatever, so now people want to “see gratitude.” Where can we “see” the gratitude?
It’s the new narrative.
And, right on cue, from yesterday’s news:
Good doggie! Grateful doggie! He’s so thankful.
My guess is someone did some focus polling with democrats about the Proxy War and it wasn’t looking good. Maybe it has something to do with the results from this Economist/YouGov poll:
In other words, maybe even democrat voters are noticing that these days a plain restaurant cheeseburger costs $17, with the fries $3.99 extra, and are beginning to wonder whether maybe this Proxy War is getting too expensive, and it might be time to put those silly Ukraine flags up in the attic with the old-style “pride” flags (the ones with only seven colors instead of twenty-six), and for that matter, it’s also probably time to take that third job as a Taco Bell weekend assistant night manager.
So watch out below, for the new Proxy War narrative landing on the American public this week. It looks like Zelenskyy will be ditching his usual bellicose barking for billions because “if you do not stop Russia at Ukraine, soon Russia rolls through Europe, and Americans fight in Rhode Island!” I think we are about to see a new, softer Zelenskyy, a former comedian who is polite and thankful, and doesn’t treat the gullible Americans like Amazon Prime. No, no, never.
Just keep the doggie treats, I mean the money, flowing.
🔥 Trending Politics News ran a story yesterday headlined, “Capitol Police Chief Confesses To Tucker That J6 Was ‘Filled With Federal Agents’.”
UPDATE: Correct link: https://twitter.com/bennyjohnson/status/1677371891961548800 (both are great though).
On a Friday interview with mega-podcaster Russel Brand, former Fox News host Tucker Carlson claimed that the crowd involved in the January 6th protest at the U.S. Capitol was bursting with undercover federal agents. The popular conservative pundit said he heard that straight from Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund, who Tucker had interviewed for his Fox show.
But Tucker was fired before the Sund interview could run. Totally coincidentally. Here’s how Tucker described it:
“And then I interviewed the chief of the Capitol Police, Steven Sund, in an interview that was never aired on Fox. I was fired before it could air… but Steven Sund was the totally non-political… chief of the Capitol Police on January 6th, and he said ‘oh yeah, yeah that crowd was filled with federal agents’.”
I dunno. Federal agents infiltrating the January 6th crowd? A crowd that wasn’t even supposed to be there, except that Trump allegedly told them to march to the Capitol on the spur of the moment? I mean, how would federal agents even know ahead of time that they needed to infiltrate the crowd? What was their assignment? Crowd control? Safety of the attendees? Protecting the President? It’s so confusing.
What do YOU think? Feds or no feds?
🔥 And so it begins, the awokening of Artificial Intelligence. Yesterday the Hill ran a story headlined, “Harris Huddles With Civil Rights Leaders On AI.”
Ironically, the Biden Administration put Kamala Harris in charge of “protecting” the public from the “dangers” of runaway artificial intelligence. Kamala Harris! Make it make sense.
Anyway, look who she met with yesterday. The list reads like a list of attendees at the 1967 World Socialist Congress or something:
The meeting’s attendees included Center for Democracy and Technology (CDT) CEO Alexandra Reeve Givens, UnidosUS President and CEO Janet Murguia, AARP CEO Jo Ann Jenkins, and AFL-CIO President Liz Shuler.
Harris, who could use a little more artificial intelligence herself, gave away the group’s focus: they don’t know jack about the technology and couldn’t understand it if they did. So instead, they want to throttle what the AI is allowed to read:
“AI is kind of a fancy thing. First of all, it’s two letters. It means ‘Artificial Intelligence.’ But ultimately what it is, is it’s about machine learning and so the machine is taught and part of the issue here is what information is going into the machine…”
I know her ‘two-letters’ nonsense is unintentionally hilarious, but it obscured the sinister part: “what information is going into the machine.” They want to make sure the AI doesn’t figure out stuff like who really killed JFK, or whether there are any physiological differences at all between male and female brains. I mean, you can’t have AI running around explaining why men can’t become women, or why 15-minutes cities won’t work.
It’s the same thing they’re trying to do with our kids in the public schools. They want to control what everyone, including AI, learns. They’re going to make the poor machines read Marx and make sure it never ever sees the Bible. Separation of Church and AI.
AI never had a chance.
🔥 White House weather update: it’s snowing. On July 7th, the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability started an investigation about the abandoned cocaine discovered inside the White House, which necessitated an indescribably humiliating evacuation of the building.
I mean, this isn’t Bogotá.
The House Oversight Committee agrees with me, and stated in a letter that the presence of illegal drugs in the White House was “unacceptable and a shameful moment in the White House’s history.”
All part of Biden’s ritual humiliation of the American people.
You probably didn’t even notice the surreptitious narrative switcheroo, but as the investigation unfolded last week, NBC News quietly dropped that the cocaine had been discovered in a “much more secure” area than initially thought, putting the lie to previous claims by mendacious White House officials that it had been found in a “high-traffic area” frequently used by visitors. Both Andrea Mitchell (MSNBC) and Kelly O’Donnell (NBC) confirmed that SOMEBODY’S recreational drugs were found in SECURE AREAS near the Situation Room and Studio 54, I mean the West Executive entrance.
This updated news, that the coke was found in a secure area, was reported a fraction as much as was the original news that the party baggie was found in a high-traffic area, leaving most people totally confused. If we had an honest media, they’d now be running stories about who at the White House originally lied to reporters about where the drugs were found.
I mean, if the drugs were left by cleaning staff or something, why lie about where they were found?
You know the reason.
💉 This next story took some work to wind together. But there might be a stealthy, poorly-documented phenomenon potentially happening right in front of us: spontaneous cardiac events at large gatherings, that sometimes cause destructive panic scenarios. In a sane world, we’d have a dozen research teams looking into this. But that would be career suicide, so you’re stuck with me and a ragtag collection of online investigators.
In November 2021, the Astroworld festival in Houston became a mass casualty event when ten people died, with the youngest nine years old, and thousands were injured. Obnoxious headliner and rapper Travis Scott’s featured show started at 9:02pm, and the first 911 call came only five minutes later. By 9:30pm, Houston police had received reports of “multiple people entering the medical tent and multiple people passed out at the front of stage.”
By 9:39pm, Houston police were “notified of [multiple] victims receiving CPR, and began ‘show stop’ procedure.” The show ended at 10:12pm. Officials have speculated that ‘overcrowding’ caused the injuries, but last week a Texas grand jury cleared Scott and other concert officials of any criminal liability for the disaster.
An ABC13 report on the Travis Scott disaster ended with a shrug, reporting “officials could not pinpoint a specific factor that led to the casualty, calling it a complex investigation.” By all accounts, Travis Scott is not a very nice person and there is compelling evidence he dabbles in the occult, fueling all sorts of intriguing theories about what “really” happened.
Bottom line is, two years and one grand jury investigation later, we still don’t know. Officials are baffled. Remember that fact.
Yesterday, it happened again, this time at an Ed Sheeran concert in Pittsburgh. Sheeran is not a rapper or an occultist, he’s a popular British singer-songwriter known for his versatile music style, which includes elements of pop, folk, and R&B. Today Magazine ran the story with the headline, “17 Hospitalized, 2 Go Into Cardiac Arrest At Ed Sheeran Concert Amid Extreme Heat.”
Cardiac arrest again.
And, um, that ‘extreme heat’ explanation was a lie. A lie quickly and easily disproven by online sleuths. According to local weather reports, it was 82 degrees at the time of the concert. That is not extreme heat. That’s not even ‘heat.’
Why would they lie?
Pittsburgh Emergency Medical Services issued a press release saying, “EMS personnel working during the Ed Sheeran concert received 37 calls for service, with 17 transports to the hospital.” Thirty-seven calls for emergency services. “The transports were for heat-related issues, some falls, one seizure, and two cardiac arrests.”
One of the cardiac arrests was a paramedic. They don’t know what caused all the casualties.
Finally, there was this UK Independent headline from last October, 2022, about a Seoul, South Korea mass casualty event:
One hundred and fifty-three dead is a LOT, putting the Seoul disaster among the top mass casualties at an entertainment event in history. The Independent explained:
Bodies were pictured lining the streets in Itaewon, a popular nightlife district, while footage showed first responders and bystanders desperately providing CPR to unconscious victims in scenes described as “like a hell”. Emergency officials said most of the dead were teenagers or adults in their 20s who had been caught up in a crowd surge[.] Many of those caught up in the stampede suffered cardiac arrest, officials said.
Despite promises by government officials of a “full investigation,” the only explanation that has been offered for the deaths is, once again, overcrowding.
“Overcrowding” is an incredibly unsatisfying explanation. It generally means they just can’t tell what happened, but there were a lot of people there, plus a destructive panic. Over the years, crowd casualties happen from time to to time, but they are rare. They seem to occur every five or ten years, or maybe even less often than that. Certainly not three in eighteen months, two of them in the US.
But they do happen. In 2003, Rhode Island’s ‘Station Nightclub’ featured a music band of idiots using fireworks — indoors — which predictably set the building on fire, creating a panic that killed 100 people and caused even more injuries. In 2010, at a techno music festival in Duisburg, Germany attended by 1.4 million, a tunnel stampede killed 21 and injured over 500 people.
So, it can happen. But still. The odd recent frequency, the vein of cardiac arrests running through them, and the remarkably similar circumstances raise questions. Think about it this way: if one or two people in a large crowd suddenly fell over and began seizing or going into cardiac arrest, a panic could easily ensue, and later nobody would really know where or how it started.
So, we can fairly speculate about which came first, the panic or the initial sudden death(s) that caused the panic. Maybe if you get enough people together at one time, the odds — these days — are that you’re likely to see at least one cardiac event. If a second one happened within view of the same group, you could easily get a panic.
I started developing a theory that whenever you get a large group together lately you’re going to see heart attacks, because there are so many happening. It’s just statistics. So I did a little online detective work, and after about ten seconds guess what?
Wales, three days ago:
ABC7 New York, March:
LA Times, October 2022:
I’m going to make a wild guess here and speculate that, without some additional factor of news interest, like a performer’s heart attack, a mystery hero, or a coincidental doctor in the next seat, most cardiac arrest incidents at large events won’t even make the local news. So there’s probably no way to get the data, and the officials aren’t going to check. Once again, we’re left speculating.
So what do you think? Are we on to something? Any EMTs or paramedics who can comment on whether rates of cardiac arrest at events have been increasing?
🔥 Continuing our gator theme from earlier this week, if this next video clip doesn’t amaze you and tickle your funny bone, I don’t know what will. The moral is, if this chicken can make it, whatever our problems are, we can make it too.
Be the chicken!
Have a totally terrific Thursday! And come on back tomorrow morning for another thought-provoking roundup.
