Israel releases video of deadly Gaza strike


An airstrike obliterated the home of Palestinian Islamic Jihad commander Taysir al-Jabari


The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) has released video footage of an airstrike that killed Palestinian Islamic Jihad commander Taysir al-Jabari in his Gaza apartment on Friday. Palestinian sources say eight others were killed and over 40 wounded in the attack.


The footage, apparently shot by a surveillance drone, captured the moment an Israeli missile slammed into the apartment block, blowing a two-storey hole in the building and setting off explosions across at least three floors inside.


The IDF confirmed shortly afterwards that the strike killed al-Jabari, who took over as commanding officer of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad’s (PIJ) Gaza Division after his predecessor, Baha Abu al-Ata, was assassinated in an Israeli airstrike in 2019.


Between ten and 20 PIJ terrorists were also targeted in the Israeli operation, dubbed ‘Breaking Dawn’ by the IDF. Among those killed were members of a “terrorist squad” who were “on their way to carry out an anti-tank missile and sniper attack,” the Israeli military claimed.


A separate video released by the IDF shortly afterwards showed a strike on a PIJ observation post, apparently conducted with artillery.


Palestinian militants vow imminent revenge on Israel


Tel Aviv will be targeted by missiles within hours, leader declared


Palestinian Islamic Jihad leader Ziyad Al-Nakhala said on Friday that his group would target Tel Aviv with missiles “in the coming hours.” Earlier, an Israeli airstrike killed a senior commander of the militant organization.


“Metropolitan Tel Aviv will be one of the targets of the resistance missiles, and the coming hours will prove to the enemy that all the resistance forces are one and we will fight them as one man,” Al-Nakhala said in remarks reported by Palestine’s Quds News Network.


The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have meanwhile deployed Iron Dome missile defense batteries near the cities of Beersheba, Tel Aviv, and Jerusalem. Flights have been diverted from Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv and bomb shelters in the city have been made ready, the Times of Israel reported.


The IDF launched airstrikes on the Palestinian enclave of Gaza earlier on Friday, killing PIJ commander Taysir al-Jabari. The strikes, dubbed ‘Operation Breaking Dawn’ by the IDF, targeted between 10 and 20 PIJ terrorists, and killed members of a “terrorist squad” who were “on their way to carry out an anti-tank missile and sniper attack,” the Israeli military claimed.

Israeli COVID Vaccine Director Who was Physically Injured by Pfizer Vaccine — Is Locked Out of Twitter After Suggesting Link Between Monkeypox Outbreak and mRNA Vaccines


Physician and Scientist Prof. Shmuel Shapira MD has been the Director of the Israel Institute for Biological Research for 8 years from 2013 to 2021. He recently claimed that mRNA vaccinations caused the monkeypox outbreak, as reported by Kanekoa Substack.


Prof. Shapira, who suffered from an adverse reaction following his third Pfizer vaccine, was suspended by Twitter last week and was compelled to remove a tweet where he linked the monkeypox outbreak to the Covid vaccines.


“Monkeypox cases were rare for years. During the last years, a single case was documented in Israel. It is well established the mRNA vaccines affect the natural immune system. A monkey pox outbreak following massive covid vaccination: *Is not a coincidence,” Shapira wrote on his Twitter.


Each incident may not be tied to the vaccine, but the clustering and timing suggest differently, the professor added last week.


On Tuesday, Prof Shapira wrote again regarding the obscured long-term side effects of the mRNA vaccine.


“Myocarditis, fatal arrhythmias, 20% increase in strokes, facialis, Herpes Zoster, tinnitus (ear ringing), gynecological excessive bleeding, monkey-pox, obscured long term side effects. No worries. Be happy,” he wrote.


More from Kanekoa Substack:


Professor Shmuel Shapira, M.D., MPH, served as the Director General of the Israel Institute for Biological Research (IIBR) between 2013 and 2021, where he led Israel’s effort to develop a coronavirus vaccine.


Prof. Shapira is also the founder and head of the Department of Military Medicine of the Hebrew University Faculty of Medicine and IDF Medical Corps. He is a Senior Research Fellow at the International Institute for Counter-Terrorism (ICT) at Reichman University in Israel.


Shapira previously served as Deputy Director General of the Hadassah Medical Organization and as the Director of the Hebrew University Hadassah School of Public Health. He is a Full Colonel (Res.) in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and served as the IDF Head of Trauma Branch.


On June 8, 2022, Shapira said: “I will continue and ask why give an outdated fifth vaccine that does not prevent disease and apparently causes many significant common side effects.”


On July 5, 2022, Shapira discussed the “son of a 36-year-old Australian friend” who developed “severe ventricular arrhythmias and went into heart failure” only “days after the second Pfizer vaccine”.


“The compensation is automatic by the Australian government,” he said. “Despite the behavior of their government they admit to the connection and the phrase ‘no connection’ does not appear in the lexicon.”


On July 15, 2022, Shapira shared a chart of New South Wales COVID rates showing an increased risk of COVID infection with every new dose of the mRNA vaccine on which he commented: “According to official data from Australia the more you are injected the more likely you are to get sick as the fourth injection jumps the chance dramatically. According to this study it is supposedly an anti-vaccine at least according to what I have been taught.”


On July 18, 2022, Shapira said: “I am not anti-vaccine, I am anti-stupidity, anti-fake science, and anti-incompetent management.”


On July 28, 2022, Shapira said: “T warned me to remove the T connecting MP to C. Each day I understand better where we live and in which year.”


In other words, Twitter warned him to remove the tweet connecting monkeypox to the COVID vaccine.


On July 31, 2022, Shapira shared a link to the OpenVaers COVID Vaccine Adverse Event Reports which showed a total of 1,357,937 reports including 170,151 hospitalizations and 29,790 deaths, above which he simply commented: “Safe & Efficient”

Chinese Ambassador Called To White House After Overnight Sanctions: "We Do Not Want A Crisis"


In response to China's sanctioning US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi overnight, the White House has summoned China's ambassador to the US, Qin Gang, on Friday morning to complain about Beijing's "provocative actions" - also of course the massive PLA military drills which are ongoing around Taiwan.


Taiwan's defense ministry has said the drills are an attempt at blockading the island, following Pelosi's overnight trip earlier this week which infuriated China, also on Friday leading it to cancel a series of US-China bilateral talks, including military ties and dialogue.


"After China’s actions overnight, we summoned Ambassador Qin Gang to the White House to démarche him about the PRC’s provocative actions," White House national security spokesman John Kirby confirmed to the The Washington Post.


The Chinese ambassador was officially informed that the Biden administration "condemned" the ongoing military drills, which have also seen dozens of military jets breach the so-called median line which separates the Taiwan Strait. Chinese state media earlier this week said it has effectively "ceased to exist".


Despite Beijing's protestations to the contrary, which has also highlighted months of US weapons transfers to the self-ruled island, Kirby also emphasized in his latest statements that "nothing has changed about our one-China policy" and that the US stands ready to respond to threats from China.


"We will not seek and do not want a crisis," Kirby said in the fresh statements. “At the same time, we will not be deterred from operating in the seas and skies of the Western Pacific, consistent with international law, as we have for decades — supporting Taiwan and defending a free and open Indo-Pacific."


Beijing for its part, in unveiling the personal sanctions targeting Nancy Pelosi (which however according to many reports remain "undefined" and unspecified - though without doubt it includes a travel ban to China), said further it will "definitely take all necessary measures to resolutely safeguard its sovereignty and territorial integrity in response to the U.S. Speaker’s visit."


According to a Bloomberg report from earlier this week, Pelosi's Taiwan visit was not backed by the White House, but instead left the administration in a desperate scramble to salvage the diplomatic pieces with China. "But behind the scenes, officials in President Joe Biden’s administration were fuming at her insistence on using the trip as a capstone for her career at a moment of highly delicate relations with Beijing," the report reads.

Zelensky Accuses EU Of Stalling €8 Billion In Aid: "Either A Crime Or Mistake"


Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in a Thursday night address lashed out at the European Union for what he called an "artificial delay" of 8 billion euros (or about $8.2BN) in financial assistance to the war-ravaged country.


In the remarks he stopped short of naming specific countries and leaders, but in an August 1st phone call he reportedly put pressure on his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron to help release the aid, which makes up the EU second tranche of macro-financial assistance pledged to Ukraine.


It was a rare moment that Zelensky made the brazen and aggressive allegations against the very Western countries that continue to prop up and arm his government amid the continued Russian military onslaught in the East and South.


Zelensky said in the denunciation, "Every day and in various ways, I remind some leaders of the European Union that Ukrainian pensioners, our displaced persons, our teachers and other people who depend on budget payments cannot be held hostage to their indecision or bureaucracy."


"8 billion euros for Ukraine are currently suspended," he continued, and then charged: "And such an artificial delay of macro-financial assistance to our state is either a crime or a mistake, and it is difficult to say which is worse in such conditions of a full-scale war."


Starting in May, EU leaders vowed to provide "up to €9 billion" to Ukraine, yet only a fraction of that at this point - €1 billion in loans - has been disbursed so far. But since then there's been inter-EU turmoil over just how to provide those enormous funds to a country already in deep debt and racking up a $5 billion-a-month deficit during the war.

Quadruple-Vaxxed German Health Minister Tests Positive For COVID


The German Health Ministry said in a statement that Lauterbach is displaying mild symptoms and is currently working from self-isolation at home.


“Lauterbach, 59 and a Social Democrat member, has received four doses of the COVID vaccine,” reports Deutsche Welle.


100 per cent safe and effective!


The ministry responded by asserting that Lauterbach being infected “shows that with the highly contagious omicron variant, infection cannot be completely ruled out, even with extreme caution.”


Or in other words, the vaccine is completely useless at stopping the spread of the virus, which has now weakened to become less troublesome than the common cold, but get your booster anyway because Pfizer has profit margins to reach.


Now we await the obligatory statement from Lauterbach reacting to his COVID diagnosis by thanking the efficacy of the vaccine.


As we previously highlighted, despite winter being months away, Germany has already announced it will re-introduce COVID restrictions anyway.


Negative COVID tests will be required to enter hospitals or care homes and face masks, despite there being zero evidence that they work, will be compulsory on on long-distance trains and airplanes.


Last year, we highlighted how the editor-in-chief of Germany’s top newspaper Bild apologized for the news outlet’s fear-driven coverage of COVID, specifically to children who were told “that they were going to murder their grandma.”

China Sanctions Pelosi, Halts US Talks Including Military Ties, As Jets Breach Taiwan Median Line


China has begun its retaliation against Washington by announcing Friday the cancelation of a series of meetings with the United States, namely the suspension of issues it was working bilaterally with the US on, including related to military dialogue, climate change and anti-drug projects. Most important among these at a moment Washington has expressed concern that "the risk of a mistake could actually lead to some sort of conflict" (in John Kirby's words Thursday) - is the cancelation of military ties.


This comes in addition to unveiling undefined sanctions against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi over the "egregious provocation" of her overnight trip to Taiwan earlier in the week, which saw China immediately respond with ongoing live fire drills which have surrounded the self-ruled island, as well as ballistic missile firings in the vicinity.


The foreign ministry said in a statement, "In disregard of China’s strong opposition and serious representations, Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi visited China’s Taiwan region," and announced the following countermeasures in response:


Canceling China-U.S. Theater Commanders Talk.


Canceling China-U.S. Defense Policy Coordination Talks (DPCT).


Canceling China-U.S. Military Maritime Consultative Agreement (MMCA) meetings.


Suspending China-U.S. cooperation on the repatriation of illegal immigrants.


Suspending China-U.S. cooperation on legal assistance in criminal matters.


Suspending China-U.S. cooperation against transnational crimes.


Suspending China-U.S. counternarcotics cooperation.


Suspending China-U.S. talks on climate change.


Among the most directly threatening actions thus far has been the PLA military firing ballistic missiles over Taiwan; however, which Taipei on Wednesday refused to confirm actually flew directly over the island, despite many international reports reporting such.


Meanwhile, on climate "dialogue"…

Michigan manufacturer releases toxic chemical into the Huron River system – again. City prepares to take legal action.


A Michigan automotive supplier, Tribar Technologies, is responsible for contaminating the Huron River with a second toxic chemical spill. The company admitted to releasing "several thousand gallons" of waste containing 5% hexavalent chromium into the sewer system.


According to the CDC, hexavalent chromium is a known carcinogen that can cause many ailments, including skin ulcers, stomach tumors, and lung cancer.


Tribar officials are not sure exactly when the spill started, but believe it may have begun two days before they alerted authorities. The Michigan sewer system feeds into the city's wastewater treatment plant before releasing into the Huron River.


In 2018, the auto supplier was responsible for another spill. Tribar released PFAS contaminants into the Huron River. The accident initiated a "do not eat" fish advisory that was still in place at the time of the hexavalent chromium spill this week.


In response to the 2018 mishap, Tribar added mobile filtration systems to its Michigan facility. Tribar stated that the new system should "dramatically lower levels of PFAS leaving" the factory. At the time, people were told the fish advisory would soon be lifted, but that never happened.


The first incident did not stop residents from boating, swimming, or enjoying catch-and-release fishing. However, this week's spill forced Michigan to close 14 beaches. Locals are justifiably concerned about the potential contamination of the Ann Arbor water supply.


The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy released a statement on Tuesday recommending "no contact" with the Huron River system. It noted, "EGLE is taking river water samples from multiple areas downstream from the treatment plant today and is working with local and state health officials to assess the extent of the contamination."


The Michigan League of Conservation Voters, a political organization dedicated to "protecting your land, air, and water," spoke out about the incident. Michigan LCV executive director Lisa Wozniak blamed Tribar for taking two days to report the spill.


Wozniak stated, "This horrible news is a stark reminder that who we elect in November matters – and we need a Governor, Attorney General, and state Legislature that will take these polluters head-on, make them clean up their messes, and protect our health. Toxic contamination in our drinking water continues to afflict Michiganders and we're alarmed by the lack of attention on the campaign trail being dedicated to this tremendous threat – Democrats and Republicans alike."


Mayor Christopher Taylor called Tribar's repeated pollution of the Huron River "outrageous and entirely unacceptable." Taylor explained that the city has no regulatory power over the manufacturer. On Thursday, the Ann Arbor City Council voted unanimously to explore all possible legal courses of action.

AG Miyares, Top VA Officials Ignore Evidence of 2020 Election Fraud, Irregularities – Report


A group of "concerned citizens" presented evidence of 2020 election irregularities and potential fraud to the AG's office and elections officials


A new report suggests that GOP Attorney General Jason Miyares and more of Virginia’s top officials are ignoring credible evidence of 2020 election irregularities and potential fraud. According to The Gateway Pundit’s report, a group of “concerned citizens” presented the evidence to top AG’s officials and Virginia’s elections commissioner and are still awaiting a response, weeks later.


According to the report and concerned citizen Robert Pressler, Pressler and others presented the evidence to Senior Assistant Attorney General and Chief Joshua Lief as well as Susan Beals, Virginia’s elections commissioner, over seven weeks ago. To date, they haven’t received a response.


While states like Arizona, Georgia, and Pennsylvania among others occupied headlines in the wake of the 2020 election, Virginia quietly had an election year full of documented irregularities and potential election fraud all its own.


In Northern Virginia’s deep blue Fairfax County, the most populous municipality in the state, late-night ballot drops accounted for a whopping 73% of Biden votes. Increasing the suspicion in Virginia was the bizarre behavior of media and elections officials, who had called the state for Biden early on, while Trump still held a sizable lead. As election night went on, the ballot drops from Fairfax County and other deep blue jurisdictions put Biden over the edge, clinching an already-reported victory in the state that carries 13 Electoral College votes.

SUSPICIOUS: Late Night VA Ballot Drop Accounts for 73% Of All Biden Votes In Fairfax County


In down-ballot races, bizarre election night happenings benefited Democrats as well. In the state’s 7th District, CIA veteran and Democrat incumbent Abigail Spanberger held onto her seat after thousands of mostly Democrat votes were found on a discarded thumb drive, carrying her to victory.

Given the lack of response from Virginia officials and the massive pile of election irregularities and potential fraud, retired Naval officer Robert Pressler, the father of conservative activist Ryan Pressler, penned an open letter to AG Miyares, Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin, and Commissioner Susan Beals.


Though Miyares was elected as the Virginia GOP was swept to victory amidst an ongoing culture war in the state, he has been openly hostile to the election integrity movement. As reported by National File, a former Deputy Attorney General, Monique Miles, was fired by Miyares over her election integrity activism, following a Washington Post hit piece.

In the open letter, Pressler again lays out the evidence of massive election irregularities and potential fraud offering it up to the public directly.

China Cuts Military Communications and Climate Ties With US


China’s ruling communist regime announced Friday that it would cancel or suspend dialogue on several issues with the United States ranging from military communications to climate change initiatives.


A statement from the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) foreign ministry said that the regime would cancel all direct communications between military theater leaders, working meetings between defense departments, and maritime security dialogues with the United States.


Additionally, the CCP would suspend all cooperation with the United States related to illegal immigrant repatriation, criminal justice assistance, climate talks, transnational crime, and anti-drug programs.


The announcement is part of a suite of retaliatory measures by China against the United States and its partners following U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan earlier in the week.


Moreover, the canceling of communications between military commanders in the Indo-Pacific is likely to be seen as a major escalation by the international community, as such contact is often a key tool in helping militaries avoid miscommunication or harmful accidents.


The CCP statement follows a barrage of explosive rhetoric and hostile actions from Beijing this week.


On Thursday, the CCP launched 11 ballistic missiles into the waters around Taiwan, some of which passed over the island and into the exclusive economic zone of Japan. The regime has also seemingly launched a sustained series of cyberattacks on Taiwanese infrastructure, and has implemented import bans on more than 2,000 items from Taiwan. The Chinese military’s encirclement of Taiwan has also formed a sort of blockade, forcing international air and sea traffic to back up as it attempts to wrap around the most dangerous areas.


International forums including the G7 and ASEAN have called on the CCP to end its provocations and pursue a peaceful solution to ongoing tensions.


The White House, meanwhile, summoned the Chinese ambassador for a reprimand over the unprecedented escalations.


The U.S. leadership said that it would not give in to China’s erratic and dangerous behavior and that, in spite of CCP threats to regional stability, it would pursue deescalatory measures including postponing one of its own missile tests.


“As China engages in destabilizing military exercises around Taiwan, the United States is demonstrating instead the behavior of a responsible nuclear power by reducing the risks of miscalculation and misperception,” said White House National Security Council communications coordinator John Kirby during an Aug. 4 press conference.


“This is how we’re going to defend America’s national security interests and our values.”

FBI Involved in Investigation Into President Joe Biden’s Son: Director


FBI agents are involved in the investigation into President Joe Biden’s son, according to the bureau’s director.


Appearing before a Senate committee on Capitol Hill on Aug. 4, Director Christopher Wray was asked about a whistleblower report saying Timothy Thibault, an assistant special agent in charge of the Washington field office, in 2020 shut down pursuit of derogatory information about Hunter Biden, the president’s son.


“Did he or does he work on the FBI investigation into Hunter Biden?” Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) asked.


“So, the investigation that you are referring to—and I have to be a little bit careful, because we are talking about an ongoing investigation—is being run on of our Baltimore field office, working with the Delaware U.S. Attorney, who is a holdover from the prior administration,” Wray said.


The comment appears to be the first time that FBI involvement in the probe has been confirmed.


“We have nothing further to add to the Director’s testimony,” a spokesperson for the FBI’s Baltimore office told The Epoch Times in an email.


The White House did not respond to requests for comment. The Department of Justice has declined to comment. Hunter Biden’s lawyer has not returned inquiries.


The younger Biden said in December 2020 that he had learned the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Delaware was “investigating my tax affairs.”


He said he was confident the probe would conclude he handled his affairs “legally and appropriately.”


Joe Biden, who had not been sworn into office at the time, said through a spokesperson that he was “deeply proud of his son.” The president has maintained his son has not done anything wrong.


The U.S. attorney’s office said at the time that “we cannot comment on an ongoing investigation.”


A subpoena disclosed in January showed that David Weiss, who heads the office and was appointed by former President Donald Trump, showed that authorities issued a subpoena for transactions between the accounts of Hunter Biden, the president’s brother James Biden, and the Bank of China.

Disney Won’t Say Gay in Middle East: Censors LGBTQ Content in Gulf Countries While Fighting Florida Law


The Walt Disney Co. won’t say gay in the Middle East.


After picking a political fight with Florida over the state’s Parental Rights in Education Law, and declaring itself an LGBTQ ally to boot, Disney is reportedly censoring gay and transgender content on the version of the Disney+ streaming service that it launched in the region in June.


Among the titles that won’t stream are the animated movie Lightyear, which features a lesbian kiss, and the Baymax series, which has a transgender “man” who menstruates.


Disney cited “local regulatory requirements” in a statement to Esquire Middle East.


“Content offerings differ across our many Disney+ markets, based upon a number of factors. Content available should align with local regulatory requirements,” the studio said.


Disney+ Middle East recently launched in several predominantly Muslim countries — including the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, and Qatar — where homosexuality is either illegal or considered taboo.


The UAE already banned Lightyear from showing in local cinemas.


This year, Disney CEO Bob Chapek declared the company will be a staunch ally of the LGBTQ community. He said Disney will continue to fight Florida’s Parental Rights in Education Law, which forbids the teaching of sexuality and gender ideology — including transgenderism — to children in kindergarten through third grade.

Dutch Farmer Protests: Far-Left Extremists Threaten to Attack Businesses of ‘Right-Wing’ Farmers


Far-left extremists in the Netherlands have threatened to attack farms in the country belonging to “right-wing nationalists”.


The threat by far-left extremists in the Netherlands comes as farmers continue to fight EU green agenda measures in their country that could result in the closure of up to 30 per cent of livestock farms, something local government officials have decreed is part and parcel of an “unavoidable transition”.


According to a report by Der Telegraaf, extremists have threatened that they will soon occupy barns of “far-right nationalists” — also known as farmers trying to protect their livelihoods — in the country, and let lose livestock from their pens.


“From next week we will occupy livestock farms and free the animals from the mega stables,” the publication reports one online declaration associated with the extremists as saying, who also took time to denounce the farmers themselves.


“They are right-wing nationalists and comparable to Nazis for the animals,” the post said, while urging netizens to join the so-called ‘Animals Defense Force’.


Dutch Farmers Light Motorways on Fire Again Ahead of Negotiations with Govt


Dutch farmers once again took to the motorways of the Netherlands to deploy flaming bales of hay as makeshift road blocks.


On the eve of negotiations between the government’s mediator and 20 farmers’ associations, protestors put on a show of force, repeating last weeks tactics of covering motorways with burning bales of hay.


According to a report from Dutch public broadcaster Nederlandse Omroep Stichting (NOS), about fifteen tractors had been witnessed gathering in the Brinkhofweg area of the A30 highway on Thursday before a fire was set around 8:30 pm. On the A1 motorway near Terschuur tractors were also seen before a pile of garbage was set ablaze.


Both fires were put out by local fire bridges and no injuries were reported.


Last week, motorways across the country were forced to shut down with tyres, garbage, hay, and other waste being strewn about by farmer protesters.


On Friday, major farming associations, including the LTO — which had previously rejected calls for talks unless the government scrapped its pledge to cut nitrogen emissions in half by the end of the decade — agreed to sit down with PM Mark Rutte’s handpicked negotiator, former deputy prime minister Johan Remkes.


Ahead of the meeting, the leader of the right-wing populist Party for Freedom, Geert Wilders warned the farmers that they should not trust the government to act in good faith during the negotiations.


“Dear farmers,” Wilders wrote on Twitter, “good luck today, but don’t forget: Rutte is an unreliable liar. And demand the signature of [Minister of Finance] Sigrid Kaag, not Rutte, because she is the boss in the cabinet and [the Democrats 66 party], the biggest farmer haters in the Netherlands.”

Education Consulting Firm Seeks to Promote ‘Queer Mathematics’ in K-12 Schools


A leftist organization called “The Queer Mathematics Teacher” is seeking to embed gender theory in K-12 math classes.


Brandie Waid, the director of The Queer Mathematics Teacher, laid out a plan for incorporating gender theory into math classes in a blog post on the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) website. CASEL is sponsored by the Allstate Foundation.


The Queer Mathematics Teacher is an educational consulting firm that seeks to promote “queer mathematics” in American K-12 classrooms. The firm sells a book titled “Talking about LGBTQ+ Identity,” which includes chapters titled “The Gender Unicorn,” “How Do I Talk About LGBTQ+ Identity With My Students,” and “What if I Receive Pushback?”


The firm also offers coaching services to teachers, which include curriculum design, district-wide audits, and professional development workshops. The site claims, “The ability to consider sexuality irrelevant in the mathematics context is a heteronormatively privileged position” and notes that some areas of expertise include “queer pedagogy,” “teaching mathematics for social justice,” “Fostering Students’ Growth Mindset (While Advocating for Systemic Change),” and “humanizing Mathematics Education for LGBTQ+ Students.”


Waid confesses in her article that math used to be a source of anxiety for her, which she links with her sexuality. She writes, “I associated mathematics with profound anxiety, intricately tied to my fears of confronting my queer identity.”


Waid also argues, “Something about mathematics is failing to instill a sense of belonging that draws 2SLGBTQIA+ students to and keeps them in the field,” adding, “How can we cultivate mathematical spaces where 2SLGBTQIA+ students feel affirmed in their queer identity and thrive personally and mathematically?”


Waid, who refers to herself as a “queer Latinx independent math coach and activist scholar,” also criticizes legislatures that have responded to parents’ calls to combat the presence of progressive ideology, writing, “With recent legislative attacks on CRT, social and emotional learning, and 2SLGBTQIA+ youth, centering thriving and humanness in our everyday practice is urgent.”


The left-wing activist even goes so far as to suggest that activist educators should teach critical race theory and gender theory, even if it means breaking the law. Waid writes, “I implore my colleagues to ask: How can we work within (or outside) the confines of these laws to center Transformative SEL and student thriving in our teaching?”


Waid also provides educator-activists with a number of activities that can be used to implement gender theory in math classes. One such activity focuses on the thoroughly debunked wage-gap myth and is called “An Intersectional Look at the Gender Pay Gap.”


The lesson, which is intended for math classes, asks students questions like “What genders are represented?,” “What other genders are there?,” and even “What would considering other gender identities add to our understanding?” The notes for teachers portion of the activity reminds educator-activists that “students may need additional support in LGBTQ+ terminology.”


One lesson, called “Progress Pride Flag,” is intended for elementary school children. It showcases a pride flag featuring a triangle with black, brown, and other colors that represent the transgender movement and suggests that educator-activists ask students questions like “What does this symbol represent?”


Another lesson plan, intended for middle school students and titled “Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation by Generation,” asks children to speculate as to why there has been an increase in LGBT self-identification among younger generations.

'iCarly' star Jennette McCurdy rips Nickelodeon: My childhood was ‘exploited’


Nickelodeon and overbearing mother 'failed to protect her,' McCurdy claims in new memoir 'I'm Glad My Mom Died'


Jennette McCurdy is opening up about her childhood trauma.


McCurdy revealed she was "exploited" when she was a child actor on Nickelodeon’s "iCarly" and "Sam & Cat."


She says her overbearing mother and the television industry were both to blame, as they "failed to protect her," according to the New York Times.


"My whole childhood and adolescence were very exploited," McCurdy said. "…There were cases where people had the best intentions and maybe didn’t know what they were doing. And also cases where they did — they knew exactly what they were doing."

FBI official transferred after whistleblower allegations of political bias, senator reveals


Chuck Grassley says Wray decision is encouraging, but it's too early to say if FBI is serious about fixing bias problems.


A key senator says a top FBI official has been moved from his leadership perch in Washington after internal whistleblowers complained he was part of an effort to interfere in politically sensitive investigations, allegations Director Chris Wray now calls "deeply troubling."


Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), the top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, told Just the News on Thursday that the FBI alerted him that Assistant Agent in Charge Timothy Thibault had been moved to another unspecified job.


The transfer came after Grassley reported extensive information to the FBI and Justice Department inspector general that Thibault had expressed political bias in social media posts and interfered in politically sensitive investigations, including one into Hunter Biden's overseas business dealings.


Grassley said he was encouraged by the move but that it was too early to tell yet whether Wray was serious about addressing a growing body of evidence of political bias inside the bureau's ranks.


"Maybe he's going in the right direction," Grassley said in a wide-ranging interview with the John Solomon Reports podcast. "But it's not enough evidence to give you a concrete answer, that he's not concerned or that he's concerned enough about what I have exposed."


Grassley first released information about Thibault and other officials in a letter last week to Wray that revealed FBI officials closed down one inquiry into President Biden's son by falsely casting evidence of wrongdoing as "disinformation" and opened other inquiries without adequate evidence.


On Thursday, the seven-term senator provided Just the News more details about what concerned him about the Thibault allegations, including that one of the investigations that was opened on thin evidence involved former President Donald Trump.


"We have evidence that there was a special agent in charge by the name of Thibault that the FBI should have known had political bias, because you could see it in his social media writings that he did over a long period of time," Grassley explained. "And he's the one that opened an investigation of Trump based upon fuzzy liberal reporting, and maybe even a little bit of fuzzy information from one left-wing nonprofit. …


"The same person, when there was credible information of criminality on Hunter Biden, he shut that investigation down and classified it more or less as disinformation."


The FBI press office did not respond Thursday evening to a request for comment on behalf of Thibault.


But during questioning at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing earlier in the day, Wray appeared to confirm part of Grassley's account by saying that Thibault had been the assistant special agent in charge at the Washington D.C. field office, a prestigious supervisory job, "until recently."


He declined to be more specific, saying he wanted to be careful not to influence ongoing personnel or investigative proceedings. But Wray acknowledged the specificity and nature of the allegations in Grassley's letter had struck an unsettling chord.


"I should say that when I read the letter that describes the kinds of things that you're talking about, I found it deeply troubling," Wray told Louisiana Republican Sen. John Kennedy.

FBI director breaks from Biden administration on border: 'Significant security issues'


"Any port of entry, any potential vulnerability, is something we know foreign terrorist organizations and others will seek to exploit," said Christopher Wray at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing.


FBI Director Christopher Wray has distanced himself from the Biden administration's assurance that the U.S.-Mexico border is secure, even as millions of illegal immigrants attempt to cross into the United States.


Illegal crossings set a record in June of this year.


A recent report showed that migrants from over 100 countries have been represented among those seeking entry into the U.S. without documentation. Some have been linked to the terrorist watchlist, including 15 noncitizens who crossed the border in 2021.


Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has said he thinks the southern border is secure.


Tennessee Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn asked Wray on Thursday if he sees an open border as a national security threat.


"I think there are serious security issues represented at the border, a wide array of criminal threats that we are deeply concerned about at the FBI," he said at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. "And that transcends everything from gangs, violence."


Wray was asked to elaborate on how the FBI is tracking, monitoring, apprehending, and investigating the individuals with terrorist ties who cross the border.


"I guess there are two things," he said. "I would say one is we're constantly sharing watchlist information with DHS and with our partners to improve the border security in that regard. And then second, through our joint terrorism task forces all over the country, we are investigating any number of individuals who are here in the United States."


Wray recently visited the U.S.-Mexico border personally. He was pressed by Texas Republican Sen. John Cornyn on whether he thinks the border is secure.


"There's a wide array of criminal threats that we encounter down at the border," he said, referencing transnational criminal organizations trafficking illegal drugs to street gangs for distribution.


Wray described the U.S.-Mexico border as a vulnerability that bad actors seek to exploit.


"Any port of entry, any potential vulnerability, is something we know foreign terrorist organizations and others will seek to exploit," he said. "And you only have to look at the case that we charged pretty recently involving an individual trying to smuggle nationals into the U.S. to kill former President Bush to be reminded that it's something we need to take definitely seriously."


In May, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said China poses the "most serious long-term" threat to the world order.


Wray has issued strong warnings about the threat posed by the Chinese government, while President Biden has been criticized for not doing enough to combat Chinese espionage and technology theft or prevail in economic competition with the U.S. rival.


"With Biden's blessing, Senate Democrats will vote to give massive tax breaks for electric batteries, solar panels, and wind turbines manufactured in China," wrote Florida GOP Sen. Marco Rubio in an op-ed. "The taxes are part of the Democrats' so-called 'Inflation Reduction Act,' a 725-page boondoggle that will increase taxes by hundreds of billions of dollars in the middle of a recession they created."


In July, Wray said the FBI "consistently see(s) that it's the Chinese government that poses the biggest long-term threat to our economic and national security."


Under questioning from Nebraska Republican Sen. Ben Sasse on Thursday, Wray reaffirmed that he sees China as the number one geopolitical foe of the United States.


"That would be the People's Republic of China, and specifically the Chinese Communist Party," he said.

Life insurance claims skyrocket after COVID jab rollout, prompting insurers to take legal action against vaccine manufacturers


Life insurance claims have skyrocketed since the COVID jab rollout, dwarfing the number of claims made during 2020 when a high-mortality-rate-pandemic was supposedly ravaging the Nation. Yale epidemiologist Harvey Risch believes that insurance companies are on the verge of taking legal action against vaccine manufacturers over vaccine-associated death risks that were downplayed from the very beginning.


Risch points to an explosion of “early unexpected mortality claims” after the COVID vaccine rollout. This influx of life insurance claims is not even COVID-related, and insurers are struggling to pay out. Risch says that vaccine manufacturers misrepresented the “all-cause mortality” from their very own clinical trials, not only deceiving the population into taking dangerous vaccines, but also misleading the insurance companies who are now forced to pay for thousands of needless deaths in young and middle-aged adults.


Will insurance companies seek financial compensation from the COVID-19 vaccine manufacturers to cover for “major financial risk[s] that they have to figure out how to manage” going forward?

Epidemiologist believes life insurance companies may sue vaccine manufacturers for misleading statements

take our poll - story continues below


Risch has analyzed statements made by the CEOs of various group life insurance companies. He claims that the actuaries miscalculated, estimating that the vaccinated would “live longer than they have.” Risch said the actuaries were deceived on “all-cause mortality…from the original [vaccine] trials.”


In December of 2021, OneAmerica CEO Scott Davison attended a healthcare conference and spoke up about an “unheard of” 40 percent spike in the death rate of working-age people insured by the company. The 40 percent increase in death made no rational sense because the covid-19 vaccine had been rolled out the entire year. Government and public health officials promised that this vaccine program would save lives and end the pandemic.


Davison said that a 10 percent increase in death would have required a “one-in-200-year-catastrophe.” There was no way the company could have predicted a 10 percent increase in death claims, let alone a 40 percent increase, when the worst of the pandemic was supposed to be in the rear-view mirror. The vaccines were safe and effective, they were told, and no one was allowed to question the god-like status of these experimental jabs.

Russia Sends Data To UN Proving Kiev Attacked Detention Center


The Russian government is sending data to the UN proving that it was not involved in the attack on the Elenovka detention center, in the Donetsk People’s Republic. Moscow alleges that it was the Ukrainian forces themselves that operated the attack in order to prevent confidential information from being revealed by the prisoners during the court hearings. It remains to be seen whether the case will be investigated by UN observers.


Russian Deputy UN Representative Dmitry Polyanskiy said Secretary-General Antonio Guterres was informed by Moscow’s officials of evidence that Ukrainian forces killed Elenovka’s prisoners in a criminal attack. He also emphasized that Russia demands an official position from the UN condemning the attitudes of the Ukrainian side, considering the alleged irrefutability of the data presented by the Russian delegation.


“Today we informed UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres that we have irrefutable evidence of Ukraine’s responsibility for the shelling of Elenovka. The UN should not shy away from condemning this crime of the Kiev regime (…) We have called on the UN to immediately give an objective assessment of what happened”, Polyanskiy said on his social media.


Precise details on what this data and “irrefutable evidence” would be have not been informed yet, but it is expected that in the near future some information will begin to be released. In fact, the Russian government has repeatedly demonstrated complete transparency in its investigative conduct on the case. For example, the Russian Defense Ministry previously reported that Moscow was inviting experts from the UN and the Red Cross to help with investigations about the Elenovka incident, which undoubtedly appears to be a gesture of goodwill. If Moscow were really responsible for the attack, it would certainly prevent international observers from acting in the investigation, but the willingness to invite is a major indication of Russian innocence.


An interesting fact about the Elenovka event is that apparently the weapon used for the bombing was the High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS) – precisely the deadliest weapon sent by the US to Kiv so far. The sending of HIMARS to Ukraine was a gesture of provocation and hostility on the part of the US, considering that the Russian government has repeatedly asked for the the deployment of long-range missile systems to be avoided. Now, the West can clearly see the result of its pro-Kiev arms-sending policy: war crimes and massacres.

French Volunteer Suggests Bucha Tragedy Was A False Flag


Since footage of the Bucha tragedy emerged, Russian officials have repeatedly claimed that Moscow forces had no part in the alleged massacre. Reports by journalists and analysis by experts on several occasions showed that the evidence pointed to the existence of a false flag operation by Kiev. Now, the testimony of a French volunteer once again points to this conclusion. More than that, the witness also reports episodes of massacre and torture against Russian prisoners, showing that Ukrainian fighters have committed war crimes.


Adrien Bocquet, a French volunteer in the Ukrainian conflict, recently made statements denouncing some facts he saw during his work. He traveled to Ukraine twice to help with humanitarian missions, mainly with rescuing the wounded, providing equipment, medicine and other similar actions. In his activities, Bocquet witnessed the inhumane treatment Russian prisoners have been subjected to when captured by Ukrainian soldiers.


“When I talk about murder and torture, I am talking about the murder and torture of the Russian military. Officers were the first to be executed. I heard shouts when the ‘Azov men’ asked who the officer was. As soon as they got the answer, they immediately shot that person in the head […] The worst thing is that I saw no human attitude, no emotions, because I saw people being executed, people being tortured, people being killed, shot in their limbs, heads”, he said.


According to him, Ukrainian neo-Nazi militants publicly express their anti-Russian hate and make it clear that their aim is simply to torture and kill Russian citizens, regardless of any issue. For them, the desire to massacre Russians seems even greater than the desire to “liberate” Ukraine, as Bocquet reports:


“I had to pretend a lot to avoid showing my opinions and emotions and above all not to show disagreement with their opinions. Disagreement with their Nazi ideology, especially when they expressed attitudes toward Jews and people of color, because they made very cruel statements. And first of all, I’m talking about hatred towards Russians, because they […] call you ‘Russian dogs’. And for all these soldiers, for members of the Azov Battalion, the main task, as they have always told me, is to torture and kill ‘Russian dogs’. As a former military man, I was surprised. Because everything showed that their main goal was to torture and kill ‘Russian dogs’ while they never even talked about the liberation of their population”.

Five Months’ worth of Official Government Data proves the Covid-19 Vaccines destroy the Immune System and cause Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome


An in-depth investigation of 5 months worth of official UK Government data published by the UK Health Security Agency confirms that the Covid-19 “booster” dose provides a very short-lived temporary boost to the immune systems of the vaccinated population before decimating their immune systems much more rapidly than had already been seen in people who had received two doses of the Covid-19 vaccine.


In short, official UK Government data strongly suggests that the Covid-19 vaccinated population are developing some new form of Covid-19 vaccine-induced acquired immunodeficiency syndrome.


The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) used to publish a weekly Vaccine Surveillance Report, with each report containing four weeks worth of data on Covid-19 cases, hospitalisations, and deaths by vaccination status. For our investigation we analysed 5 of these published Vaccine Surveillance Reports containing data from August 16th 2021 to January 2nd 2022, in order to get a clear picture of the effect the Covid-19 vaccines are having on the immune systems of the vaccinated population, and this is what we found…


The UKHSA Vaccine Surveillance Reports used for our investigation can all be found here –


‘Covid-19 Vaccine Surveillance Report – Week 37’ (Published by PHE)

‘Covid-19 Vaccine Surveillance Report – Week 41’ (Published by UKHSA)

‘Covid-19 Vaccine Surveillance Report – Week 45’ (Published by UKHSA)

‘Covid-19 Vaccine Surveillance Report – Week 49’ (Published by UKHSA)

‘Covid-19 Vaccine Surveillance Report – Week 1 – 2022’ (Published by UKHSA)


Real-World Covid-19 Vaccine Effectiveness


Pfizer claims that its Covid-19 mRNA injection has a vaccine effectiveness of 95%. They were able to claim this because of a simple calculation (full details of which can be viewed here) performed on the number of infections confirmed amongst the vaccinated group and the not-vaccinated group during the earliest stages of the still ongoing clinical trials.


Now, thanks to a wealth of data published by the UK Health Security Agency we are able to use the same calculation that was used to calculate 95% effectiveness of the Pfizer vaccine, to calculate the real-world effectiveness of the Covid-19 vaccines, and the data, unfortunately, paints an extremely concerning picture.


The week 37 Vaccine Surveillance report included the number of Covid-19 cases by vaccination status between week 33 and week 36 of 2021 (August 16th to September 12th). Because the report tells us the Covid-19 case rates per 100,000 people among the unvaccinated and two-dose vaccinated population we are able to calculate the real-world vaccine effectiveness during this period, and it proved to be as follows –

Dem congressional staffer poses as FBI agent at Trump rally, leads Secret Service on chase in DC, steals $80,000, gets arrested in Georgia after T-shirt tips off law enforcement


A Democratic congressional staffer reportedly posed as an FBI agent during a Trump rally in 2020, then led police on a chase through Washington, D.C. The suspect was finally apprehended after his T-shirt tipped off law enforcement. Before he was caught, the suspect secretly gave himself an $80,000 pay raise, according to a new report.


According to court documents, a staffer for Rep. Brad Schneider (D-Ill.) quietly resigned after he was accused of impersonating an FBI agent during a Trump rally on Nov. 14, 2020. Sterling Devion Carter allegedly showed up at a MAGA rally in Washington, D.C., but was posing as a fake FBI agent.


The Daily Beast reported, "Carter, who was standing near his parked car, was wearing a black T-shirt that read 'federal agent,' a police duty belt, a Glock pistol, extra ammunition, handcuffs, a radio, and an earpiece." Carter looked the part of a federal agent so convincingly well that people in the crowd thanked him for his service.


Carter's vehicle was a blue Ford Taurus – which appeared to be an unmarked police cruiser. The car featured blue emergency lights, a spotlight on the driver's side door, a laptop mount on the dashboard, and a partition separating the front seats from the back seats for prisoner transport.


The emergency lights were flashing during the rally for former President Donald Trump – which caught the attention of two plainclothes officers with the Secret Service.


They noticed that the license plate font was bolder and more elongated than usual D.C. tags, according to court documents. The agents ran the car's license plates – which turned up no results.


The officers went to inspect the unusual police cruiser and approached Carter. The law enforcement agents noted that Carter placed his pistol magazines behind his handgun – which would make it difficult for an officer to reload his gun during a firefight. The officers also noticed that Carter's badge was unrecognizable.


Carter then got into his car and drove away with the emergency lights flashing.


The officers contacted the United States Secret Service Joint Operations Center to see if any other federal law enforcement agencies were assisting in controlling the crowds. There were no uniformed federal agents working that day.


Five bicycle cops with the Secret Service caught up with Carter. As they approached him, Carter told them that he was "FBI." When the agents asked Carter for his credentials, he turned on the emergency lights and fled the scene.


An agent pursued Carter on his electric bike, and reached speeds of up to 35 mph during the chase through the streets of Washington, D.C. The agent halted the Secret Service chase for "officer safety reasons." Carter was able to escape the Secret Service.

130 Coast Guard Members Sue Federal Government Over Vaccine Mandates


More than 130 U.S. Coast Guard members filed a class action lawsuit alleging the religious exemptions they filed in response to the Biden administration’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for military service members were unlawfully denied.


The lawsuit, filed July 25 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas — Galveston Division, also challenges the constitutionality of the mandate.


The number of plaintiffs exceeds 130 and will likely end up surpassing 200, according to Dale Saran, one of the attorneys representing the service members.


The suit names four defendants: Alejandro Mayorkas, secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS); Linda L. Fagan, commandant of the Coast Guard; Lloyd Austin, secretary of the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) and Dr. Janet Woodcock, acting commissioner of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).


Plaintiffs are either active-duty or reserve members of the Coast Guard, and all “have sincerely held religious beliefs that prohibit them from receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.”


According to the complaint, under the August 24, 2021, DOD vaccine mandate, the military theoretically offers “medical, administrative, and Religious Accommodation Requests (RARs) to the mandate,” while the Coast Guard’s vaccine mandate, issued two days later, “incorporates the provisions of the DOD mandate.”


The suit alleges:


“In practice, only servicemembers with medical or administrative reasons for an exemption from the mandate are accommodated, and even those sparingly, while RARs are universally denied unless the requester is eligible for administrative separation – i.e. imminently leaving the Service.”


This “conclusively demonstrates that the Armed Services have systematically and willfully violated service members’ free exercise rights under RFRA [Religious Freedom Restoration Act] and the First Amendment,” the lawsuit states.

75,000 Brits vow to stop paying their energy bills


The UK government has slammed the ‘Don’t Pay’ campaign as “highly irresponsible”


As energy prices in the UK are set to reach record highs, an anonymous group called ‘Don’t Pay UK’ has launched a campaign calling on 1 million Brits to stop paying their energy bills on October 1, when prices are expected to jump once again.


Campaign members say that at least 75,000 people have so far pledged to cancel their direct debits for gas and electricity in protest of escalating costs. The UK government is now slamming the campaign as “highly irresponsible,” as reported by The Independent on Thursday.


“This is highly irresponsible messaging, which ultimately will only push up prices for everyone else and affect personal credit ratings,” a government spokesperson was quoted as saying by the outlet.


“While no government can control global gas prices, we are providing £37bn of help for households including the £400 discount on energy bills, and £1,200 of direct support for the most vulnerable households to help with the cost of living.”


The government’s energy price cap, which is set by regulator Ofgem, is predicted to rise above £3,000 ($3,618) on October 1, a nearly 65% increase. Energy costs already rose by 54% earlier this year.


Don’t Pay UK estimates that around 6.3 million UK households will be thrown into fuel poverty by winter, with tens of millions of homes experiencing “fuel stress,” meaning they will spend more than 10% of their income on energy bills alone.


The government has explained the rising energy costs as being caused by increased global demand, the after-effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, and the ongoing military conflict in Ukraine.


However, record profits posted by energy companies like British Gas owner Centrica have sparked public uproar and accusations that providers are cashing in on the crisis.


“Our politicians and the oil and gas corporations have designed an energy system that only channels money and profits upwards, no matter the human cost,” a spokesperson for Don’t Pay said, adding that the record profits of energy companies are unacceptable.


“If the government and energy companies refuse to act then ordinary working people will. Together we will collectively enforce a fair price and the government and oil and gas giants will have to sort it out amongst themselves.”
