A "medical emergencies" tribute for we common folk; Hochul Israel trip and tragedy; Obama was there when Tafari drowned; Middle East war day 14 roundup; massive earthquake news; and more.
Good morning, C&C, and welcome to the Weekend Edition! We’re doing something a little different today, and my hope is that it’s not too repetitive. But there’s also lots of breaking news, too, so your roundup includes: citizen-obtained police documents humiliate corporate media by proving Obama present at tragic paddleboarding accident; sudden death appears in Governor Hochul’s orbit; massive “medical emergencies” roundup for us regular folks this week; a middle east war roundup; and the biggest earthquake news you never heard of.
🗞💬 WORLD NEWS AND COMMENTARY 💬🗞
🔥 Yesterday, in another shameful corporate media humiliation, Judicial Watch announced on its website: New Records Reveal Barack Obama’s Presence at Emergency Scene of Obama Family Chef Drowning.
Last night, Fox News broke the story that former President Barack Obama was, in fact, present at the scene after chef Tafari Campbell drowned on a paddle board — contradicting widespread corporate media reports.
Through FOIA, public records powerhouse Judicial Watch has newly-obtained (and still heavily redacted) Massachusetts Police documents, describing that cops interviewed Obama immediately after the 911 call reporting Tafari’s disappearance. So he was there.
Next, we learned that an unidentified female staffer who was paddleboarding with Tafari saw him “fall off his paddleboard, begin splashing and become extremely panicked, yelling for help and subsequently went underwater very quickly.” According to the police report, the mystery gal jumped into the water to try to help the chef, but he was never seen alive again.
She then “ran to the nearest U.S. Secret Service security post and reported the incident to the first USSS Special Agent she saw.”
The police records also described an alleged Secret Service surveillance video showing Tafari and the female paddleboarding companion entering the water, and showed the Secret Service’s emergency response in the immediate aftermath of Tafari’s drowning.
The video was not produced. But Judicial Watch says it will continue seeking to obtain the footage.
Why did it take so long and so much independent effort to discover that Obama was there? Why didn’t the MEDIA seek these public records? What use is the corporate media these days anyway?
If this keeps up, people might start to get the idea that the corporate media only exists to provide cover for government actors.
💉 In a curious intersection of current events, CBS News ran a story Thursday night headlined, Gov. Kathy Hochul learns of father's sudden death during emotional trip to Israel.
Jab queen, quarantine-camp organizer, and New York’s Catholic replacement Governor Kathy Hochul traveled to Israel this week — for some reason — and met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Isaac Herzog. Then she toured the tragic remains of the Kfar Aza kibbutz at the Gaza Border.
They didn’t mention whether democrat Governor Hochul crossed paths with democrat Governor Gavin Newsom.
On her flight to Israel, Governor Hochul learned her father, 87, had died suddenly and unexpectedly of a “brain hemorrhage” (stroke) in St. Petersburg, Florida. Hochul said she last spoke to him right before she left for Israel on Wednesday. "Talked to him in his rough Irish way when he said, 'I'm proud of you, Dollie, but keep your g—dam head down," Hochul said.
We pray Governor Hochul and her family will find peace in their grief this week.
💉 Medical Emergencies Roundup. I thought I’d do something a little different today. C&C normally only reports suspected jab injuries for celebrities and high-profile people. There are many reasons I don’t usually report about what we regular folks are going through. For one thing, there is much less available information for non-celebrities. We’re lucky to get a news article at all — it only happens when there’s something else newsworthy about our deaths.
Plus, celebrities and high-profile people are a group highly likely to be jabbed, and to have advertised their jabs at some point.
But for every celebrity/VIP injury, there are hundreds or thousands among us regular folks. Today, I’m showing you what I see when I’m doing my research. This is just a sample. All the following reports are just from October (less than three weeks’ worth), only in the United States, and only those fitting a jab injury profile. I rejected any story including evidence contradicting jab involvement.
Now just look at twenty day’s worth, in remembrance of the regular folks. I tried my best to categorize them, and included photos where available. You’ll see there’s no way anybody can keep up with all this. Then tell me what you think about it in the comments.

🚀 Day 14 — Middle East War Briefing.
💣 Yesterday, the Times of Israel hinted at who the “Restrainer” might be who is holding off Israel’s slow-motion ground offensive in Gaza, which has still not started. It’s Hamas. The article was headlined, Senior official: US, European countries pushing Israel to delay Gaza ground offensive
It’s all about the hostages.
Bloomberg reported yesterday that the U.S. and allied E.U. countries are pressuring Israel to postpone its Gaza ground invasion, to “exhaust the moves” for the release of the more than two hundred civilian hostages Hamas captured during its brutal surprise attack two weeks ago.
Russia Today, of all places, provided the most succinct and informative analysis of the emerging dynamics in an article yesterday headlined, “Every Middle East agenda derailed by the Israel-Hamas conflict, explained.” The Russians explained that the U.S. fears being blamed for the Gaza invasion, since everyone thinks the U.S. controls Israel:
While it publicly expresses full solidarity with Israel, the US has to be careful on the humanitarian front, which is why it has pressed Israel to provide water to southern Gaza and has pushed for some humanitarian supplies to enter Gaza from Egypt. Whether Israel can be dissuaded from launching a ground invasion of Gaza is unclear. If Israel does go ahead, it would appear – rightly or wrongly – that Biden green-lit it. This would create a backlash against the US in the Islamic world. If Israel does not go ahead, it would politically expose the ruling Israeli government to a backlash by far-right elements in the country.
Tracking this narrative, the media’s biggest war news yesterday was reported in one Jerusalem Post article headlined, “Hamas releases two American-Israeli hostages: Judith and Natalie Raanan.” Hamas released two female American hostages, a seventeen-year-old girl and her mother.
Hamas issued a statement explaining its dramatic, newsworthy decision to release the two on “humanitarian” grounds:
We are working with all the mediators to finish the case of the civilian abductees, as far as the appropriate conditions from a security point of view allow.
Pro-Hamas commenters insisted yesterday that the terrorist group wants to negotiate a return of all civilian hostages, in exchange for a cease-fire agreement that would preclude a ground invasion. It’s a brilliant strategy. Hamas can trickle out a hostage or two every few days with great media fanfare to keep pressure on while Israel’s allies insist that the ground invasion wait, indefinitely, until “all options” for getting the hostages back have been exhausted.
Israel will be universally condemned for putting the hostages’ lives at risk if it invades before all the hostages have been returned as long as it looks like Hamas is cooperating.
💣 Fox News ran a story yesterday headlined, “Russia is closely monitoring US nuclear test in Nevada, Putin's spokesperson says.
Fox reported that Russian media said yesterday that the Kremlin is “closely monitoring” a high-explosive experiment the U.S. carried out this week at its nuclear test site in Nevada. Russia accused the U.S. of violating a 1996 nuclear test ban treaty, and U.S. officials passive-aggressively responded by saying the test was just of some conventional weapons designed to look like nukes, for “detection” purposes.
The Thursday test, whatever it was, coincidentally occurred just a few hours after Russia announced its intent to consider withdrawing from the nuclear test ban treaty. Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said last week that Moscow will continue to respect the ban and will only resume nuclear tests if Washington does so first.
So, it’s going great.
🔥 Finally, many Christians are on unusually high alert these days for the fulfillment of Biblical end-times prophecy, since world events appear to be lining up with major Old and New Testament predictions. Like the Israel war, eclipses, pestilences, and increased earthquakes. But Christians may have missed the biggest earthquake news ever — on Mars.
Newsweek reported the baffling story this week in an article headlined, Mars 'Meteorite' Boom Was Actually Planet's Largest Ever Quake. The shocking six-hour, 4.7 magnitude marsquake in May 2022 has now been declared not to be from a giant meteor strike after all— proving that Mars is much more seismically active than experts and scientists have always claimed.
Established theories hold that, unlike Earth, Mars is just too small and too cold for to have any real tectonic processes. They’ve never really seen any significant tectonic activity on Mars before. So this is new. To try to reconcile the new quakey discrepancy between obvious reality and Science, experts searched Mars for signs of a dust cloud, a blast zone, or a fresh crater. But they came up short. So the race is on to come up with a new tectonic theory for the Red Planet.
I don’t know what’s so mysterious about it. It is obviously manmade climate change. The excessive CO2 in the Earth’s atmosphere caused by gas-powered SUVs is so bad it is now tragically destroying, not just the Earth, but the entire Solar System. Who knows how many innocent space bacteria may be dying by the trillions as Mars shakes around? Scientists should talk to Greta Thunberg if they really want to clear up this mystery.
Or, it might be aliens tunneling through Mars’ dusty crust using advanced boring technologies. I’m okay with either explanation.
Don’t cancel me, I’m just saying, but after all, newly-rumbling Mars happens to be named after the Roman god of War. It’s probably nothing though.
